  1. Some clarification might help. Do you mean it never wakes you up, or, there was one time you needed it to and it didn’t?
    There is a wide variety of people’s response to caffeine. I can have a double espresso and go to bed and sleep all night. Its never done much for me. In college, I would drink a whole 8cup pot trying to study and be asleep at 11:00pm. My wife can have tea with lunch and not sleep that night.

  2. I don’t think that coffee actually «wakes you up», I think it just increases heart rate…waking you up in effect but not really….

  3. Everything. You have cancer. You will die.
    No, it means nothing. You were too tired, and the level of caffeine wasn’t enough to balance that out, you were resistant to caffeine that day, maybe too much coffee regularly, there’s a lot of factors. It isn’t important, you aren’t going to die of cancer because you coffee was “weak.”
    My solution is sleep more. Maybe you wouldn’t be so sleepy and need so much coffee.

  4. This could mean a lot of different things. Caffeine affects people different and the effects of it tend to manifest in different ways depending on the individual. For some people it even has a reverse effect of calming them down. It could mean that you are so tired that no substance will help and your body is telling you that you need more sleep. It could be that you have built up an immunity to coffee and need to try another form of caffeine to do the trick. If it has never had an effect on you, I would say that your body is just not compatible, and to either ask your doctor for a medical opinion, or just continue to try other forms of caffeine, like tea, perhaps.

  5. It could mean that you are just exhausted. Get more sleep. It could also mean that you are experiencing adrenal fatigue. This is serious, and I would recommend that you see a good practitioner of Chinese medicine. A good Chinese medicine practitioner is way more adept at treating this serious illness than most western doctors.

  6. That you obviously need more sleep.
    Of course, our industrial society demands that you be awake at that moment in time anyway.
    I’m hardly unsympathetic. I just don’t see any way out. Except maybe by checking out of society entirely.

  7. You may have been drinking it for so long, your body has gotten used to that amount of caffeine. Should you drink more? Well… That’s a tricky question that you should ask your doc about if you really aren’t sure.
