Caffeine Doesn’t Affect Me

0

So I’m 27 years old now. I’m beginning to figure things out about myself. One of those things is that caffeine seems to have no noticeable effect on my energy. I first noticed this after a high school basketball game in our neighboring town of Bend, Oregon. The drive was 30 minutes max in a school bus. A friend and I each bought a Jolt Cola from a vending machine in the school (we found it a bit odd that there was such a caffeinated drink in the school). We each chugged them quickly. Within ten minutes of bus riding, I was fast asleep.

Since that time, other forms of energy drinks (if I remember right, Jolt was one of the first, if you can call it an energy drink) have been born. A couple summers ago, some wakeboarding buddies of mine essentially got sponsored by Red Bull, and I had many days where I drank two or three cans of it. Even then, I never noticed additional energy. A few months ago at the Portland Pro Wakeboard Tour stop, we got a slew of free Rockstar. I drank one can and a little of another just before a flight out of town. My flight got delayed almost two hours, and while waiting, I had to keep moving around so I didn’t fall asleep and miss my flight when the time came around. Now, I’m not saying caffeine makes me tired, I had been out in the sun most of the day, and would normally have been plenty tired.

I’m sure that caffeine still messes with my innards, because I couldn’t be that lucky, but for some reason, it has no effect on my energy; weird.
