  1. Drinking coffee is what you do if you do NOT want to feel sleepy. If you drink a strong coffee drink in the evening then you can expect to feel quite alert and energized for most of the night. The effects last for several hours. So, all you can do is perhaps do some chores you’ve been neglecting while you’re caffeinated, like, vacuum your floors, sort and pay your bills, do some laundry and fold clothes, organize your kitchen cupboards, etc.
    And use this as a learning experience. The caffeine in coffee and in some teas and in “energy drinks” and in some headache medications is a stimulant: it makes you more awake and alert. Avoid caffeine in the late afternoon, evening, and at night if you want to sleep that night.

  2. It certainly is.
    For starters, there is a delay between the consumption of coffee and the onset of the effect of the caffeine. From memory, it is in the order of 30–60 minutes. For greater refreshment, road safety advertising in Australia suggests drinking a coffee then having a short nap while it’s effects are waiting to kick in.
    With that aside, the effect of coffee will depend on its strength and the tolerance of the individual. My first coffee kept me awake from 10pm to 8am the next day. In contrast, many people regularly drink coffee after dinner without much (or any) impact on their sleep.
    Finally, caffeine’s effects are not unlimited – drinking coffee constantly will not mean you can live for decades without sleep. At some point, tiredness will win out and you will fall asleep. Possibly spilling your coffee in the process.

  3. Of course you can. How easily, depends on your tolerance for caffeine. Many people have a very high tolerance for it. Even if you are a coffee “virgin,” you still might be getting a significant amount of caffeine daily. Many soft drinks have more caffeine per ounce than coffee. Black tea has more caffeine than coffee, depending on how it’s brewed. Of course “Energy” drinks have big doses of sugar and caffeine.
    One little known fact is that “Dark Roast” coffee has less caffeine than the supposed “milder” brews because the longer roasting destroys much of the caffeine. In any case, no matter how low your tolerance for caffeine might be, you will eventually fall asleep under it’s influence. A2A

  4. Drink decaf. Caffeinated coffee and sleep don’t mix well for a lot of people. For others, it’s no issue, especially if you are extremely fatigued.

  5. By not having coffee at night. Caffeine should be consumed when you’re trying to stay awake so it’s best to avoid drinking coffee at least less than 10 hours before your bed time as caffeine typically stays in your system for 10 hours. So if you go to bed by 9 PM try to avoid having coffee after 11 AM.

  6. Yes. It all depends on how tolerant your body is to caffeine. When I used to drink 3 to 5 cups of strong coffee a day, I could drink coffee minutes before bed and still fall asleep instantly and sleep soundly. But once I abstained from drinking anything with caffeine in it (i.e., no coffee, no tea, no sodas like Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Jolt, etc.) for about 4–6 months straight and weaned myself off the caffeine tolerance, I found a single cup of instant coffee kept me awake for 48 hours straight before I crashed and slept for 20 hours straight.

    It is mainly first-timers who get the coffee jitters if it is drunk in the evenings or around bedtime.
    A person long accustomed to drinking coffee may have the opposite effect as a matter of fact, medically. It may be a sleep-aid as it relaxes them.
    This analgesic effect is why it has been combined with several OTC or prescription minor pain relieving tablets. It potentiates their pain relief.

  8. There is such thing as there is such thing as a coffee nap how it works it takes 20 minutes I guess for some individuals is different because I benefit from 40 because it takes me awhile but the point is it doesn’t hit you immediately you going to a light sleep for about 20 to 40 minutes and you wake up refreshed even better because you got your brain refreshed and the reason that is just cuz your brain produces a chemical that causes you to be draggy and 20-minute nap clear set out you got this little somewhat like gaps in your head with those chemicals get in and make a goopy substance and as your resting it clears it out at the same time the caffeine from the coffee fits in those this is how caffeine works and gives you energy to your nervous systems of your brain now how this works is it takes 20 minutes that’s exactly the same amount of time it takes to clear that stuff out of your brain that stuff is important for your sleep by the way that’s why I exist and the caffeine is just the right shade to fit in there and what happens is when it’s cleared out it then interspec tapping your head it’s kind of like giving you energy at the same time putting a block there to keep the thing on the gas pedal so to speak it was. That’s just a metaphor but basically it gives your brain a jump start you’re able to focus more Studies have shown that it actually improves your focus and attention more than those who have taken coffee and naps alone Together that is the best combination and I have been so tired that I fell asleep for 2 hours after drinking coffee it also depends on how tired you are sometimes coffee doesn’t work but the good news is coffee stays in system for 4 hours so if you sleep 2 hours deeply you’re most likely going to wake up even more refreshed I have actually woken up after drinking coffee 2 hours ago before I was just extremely tired 90 minutes actually increases your creativity in your brain so that’s a plus I guess if you can pull that off if you’re tired enough

  9. Yes, I never had trouble sleeping after drinking coffee. Everyone is different. It may be possible for you. Only you know how it effects your sleeping. It is mostly about out mind set. If you allow it to affect you, or not. We tell out bodies how to handle our lives, by what we tell ourselves. I can react or move beyond in the power of the universe replacing the fears which cause our illness. Being pro-active is the best. Do what you want and let the pieces come together.

  10. Every medicine or chemical we ingest has the potential to be less-effective after some time. It is the same with coffee.
    When your body is used to it, it might not be as effective as it used to be.
    So it is possible to fall sleepy after coffee if you are used to it. Remember that this is not because coffee will make you sleepy. It is because you won’t be awake because of coffee and will sleep naturally.

  11. Sure, if you’re used to drinking coffee. In the past I often had a cup of coffee after dinner, then 1 hour later went off to sleep without any problem.

  12. Caffeine literally blocks the receptors in your body that let you know that you are tired. That being the case it can be very, very difficult to fall asleep shortly after drinking coffee. If you are stuck not being able to sleep because of coffee I would just take it as a mental lesson to not do that again. It’s kind of like touching a hot stove and then learning not to do that again.
    Basically you can’t unring a bell so just get comfortable and find some other calming activities to do if you can’t sleep. Reading would be a great option.

  13. a small solution. works with me all the time when I drink coffee and then I can’t sleep. so basically even if you can’t sleep close your eyes and then picture this: a blue sky and a fence in the middle. now picture sheep jumping over the fence, count as many as you can! I can guarantee you won’t get to 50 before your asleep. although to get this to work keep your eyes shut the whole time.

  14. Well how ??? some ? broken ? not at all ? dont have any after midday would be my answer, but people do and sleep, but from experience , those that do find it hard to sleep but end up sleeping into the day.

  15. Yes possible. I did that anyway. Some people cannot sleep. May be they have problem with caffein. So it is depending on personal choice.
