Caffeine prevents you from thinking clearly

Caffeine prevents you from thinking clearly
I believe caffeine as well as the majority of substances we intake on a daily basis thinking it can improve our performances are actually doing more harm than good. A few months ago I've quit drinking coffee cold turkey, I've replaced it with black tea for the first few days and eventually dropped that too. Now, at work, I only drink water and I noticed the following changes:

  • First few days were incredibly hard without coffee, I've felt tired all day and wasn't really productive.
  • After the first weeks, my coffee dependency started to wear off and I didn't feel tired anymore.
  • I stopped going to the bathroom to take a leak every 2 hours. Seriously coffee really messes up your bladder making you urinate more frequently.
  • I began thinking more clearly early in the morning and my general performances had gone up, I clearly feel better from a psychological point of view, my sense of clarity has improved.
  • Coffee used to raise my blood pressure. Ever since I stopped drinking coffee my blood pressure normalized.
I know most people are pro caffeine and coffee is probably their favorite drink but I'm just explaining my personal experience and the benefits I think may come from dropping caffeine from your life and on that note, dropping all substances you that you may take on a daily basis like nicotine, marijuana or alcohol. I believe when it becomes a habit, it becomes dangerous and bad for you.

Picking the losing side.

I understand that coffee is a huge part of many people's lives, and they absolutely cannot get their day started until they've gotten their morning fix. I have plenty of friends and family members who enjoy coffee, and I can clearly tell that it does them good. Me on the other hand, I don't benefit from coffee in any way. I'm ultra sensitive to caffeine so even the smallest cup of coffee makes me feel far worse than before I drank it. It lowers my blood pressure making me feel weak, and I start feeling dizzy and confused. Coffee just ain't my cup of tea.

"They cannot get their day started without it"

This is called withdrawal. Your friends are chemically dependent on a drug. It is very sad that people don't see the parallels between this and maintenance alcoholics. A point comes in an addict's life where they no longer get "high" off their drug. Rather, they use it to maintain normalcy. This is a perfect description of the caffiene addiction crises in the US.
RedVelvetCupcake2009
This situation reminds me of that scene from Saved By the Bell. People don't see caffeine as a drug, but in some ways, it's similar to addictive drugs like Adderall, cocaine, meth, and opioids. I struggled with Adderall withdrawal for a while, so I can relate to people who need to have their coffee every day. You should control your intake, but rather drinking something like green or black tea is much better for your body. I don't even like the taste of coffee anyway. Anytime I drink it, it burns a hole in my stomach.

Agree

Too much caffeine has very bad effects on the body. You will find that it increases the blood pressure. Also it brings more anxiety. And it may also leads to more of mental capacity loss. I have seen that happening. Most of the diabetic people have also noticed the damage caused by it. So in that case it is definitely true for sure. Some people may disagree but for general population this is what may work out.

Caffeine Addicts

This is true for most people. Sadly, few people can use caffeine wisely. Most are addicted to it, having consumed it daily for years. Like cigarette smokers and alcoholics, they need it to feel normal, having confused the withdrawal relief they receive from using their drug of choice for a boost in cognitive ability. It is true that caffeine can boost your mental acuity if it is used infrequently, with moderation. Addictive substances just don't work that way.

Agree

I think Caffeine is a drug and so is coffe, a legal drug at least, people become addicted to it so that can be good at all. Some people even believe they would have a headache if they don't drink it and that's the addiction talking right there, because that headache is product of the detox the body is suffering. I don't drink it at all. I rather tea or plain water. I love the smell of coffe but hate the taste of it.

Try tea instead !

As an Asian, I don't drink coffee on regular basis except when it's too cold in December and January. On the contrary, I take one cup of tea on daily basis. Tea seems to be the fix for Asians instead. Thousands of research has been produced clearly stating that tea without milk is quite beneficial that's why Chinese do drink different types of green tea multiple times in a day and are more healthy than other Asian who intake milk tea.

Addictive

I only drink coffee if I go to a Caffe place and I only drink Moccacino coffee because I love chocolate. I've heard about a lot of people who quitted coffee because they realized that they were becoming coffee addicts, also, coffee has a placebo effect that makes them believe that they need to drink coffee to stay focus, think clearly or stay awake all the time and that's not true if you have to drink coffee any chance you have.

coffee is helpful

Coffee acts a stimulant. By default, it is going to make you more alert. True, for some, it can make their brains "overactive" which may lead to confused or cloudy thinking. But since it is a fairly benign substance, for most folks, it simply makes them more alert. I find that it helps me wake up and work well early in the morning. I think I'd definitely be dragging without it. It's great that you found you function better without it, though.

Caffeine helps me

I have never drunk a lot of caffeine so it has never affected me negatively. I barely drink it to be fair. I think I drank it a few times during my exams where I had to do a lot of revision for hours on end. I just couldn't stay awake or concentrate properly so I made some coffee for myself. It definitely helps although it then makes it harder to sleep which was a bit of a problem for me.

Control your intake and it will be fine

I find people blame coffee or feel they need it. Either way, if you control your consumption then it's fine.

I drink coffee when I feel like it and sometimes it gives me a buzz early on and other times there is no effect. I think if you drink too much or don't eat or have a caffeine reaction then it can effect your thinking, but a cup alone won't do much harm at all.

I disagree

Of course, you felt tired and stuff after quitting coffee... your body was used to, it's logical and it would react the same if you suddenly quit something else that you've been consuming for a longer period of time. Coffee gives you the energy boost so if you don't drink it you feel tired. It isn't because coffee is bad for you.

I have tried quitting coffee before and I did for around two months and I honestly haven't noticed any good changes. That's why I began drinking it again and I love it.

Coffee is actually proven to have many beneficial effects on us and our body such as reducing the chances of various illnesses.

I disagree

When you're reading this article while sipping on coffee (lol). Well, in my opinion, everyone reacts to stimulants differently. Coffee is a prime example of this. For example, I know some people that become nervous wrecks after consuming caffeine. At the same time, I know others that need the coffee bean in order to become fully functional.

Personally, I'm not dependent on coffee. Nor do I feel it affects my train of thought. But I do like a cup consistently. Once again, I don't need it. Though it is nice to sip on in the early morning time. But for the sake of your article, I'll drop the caffeine for a week or two, studying my body on how it reacts.

Disagree

I don't agree that on use caffeine stops you from thinking clearly. In withdrawing, however, you may be prone to not thinking clearly after your brain has adjusted to it. Even if it were true, at a certain point you have to think whether you think less clearly while consuming caffeine or less clearly while tired. It's more than likely the latter. If you are having trouble thinking clearly while consuming caffeine you should probably stop drinking it.

I don't agree

I really need to take a cup of coffee in the morning as this makes me feel energized and ready to tackle the day. I normally write articles for a journal and having coffee can actually help me think better. Apart from that I also take coffee when I have headaches at times and it does give me relief. I think that the effectiveness of caffeine is not the same for all of us.

Depends on the person.

As far as the question in the title is stated in and of itself, I'd have to say it REALLY depends on the person in question. I personally find that caffeine (not coffee; I find coffee disgusting and will refuse to drink it unless I absolutely REQUIRE a caffeine boost in some form) has been beneficial to my life, though I can also generally live without it most days, too. Some populations can't get any benefit out of caffeine and/or find it actively detrimental to their lifestyle, and that's okay too! If you have to have a cup in the morning, sure. If you have to avoid it, sure. But one experience does not fit all, and never will.

I disagree!

I disagree with you, coffee makes me think more clearly all day long. If I am not drinking a coffee it is hard for me to concentrate and do my regular job. Besides, I am more nervous too. I have not drunk coffee a few years ago for a couple of months, but it was no difference in the clarity on how I saw things around me!

Caffeine is Just Fine

I love my morning coffee. I think that caffeine definitely sharpens the mind, at least for a time. We can all crash from an over-indulgence in coffee; however, it is a useful boost, if consumed in moderation and properly, to the system. I think coffee is what got me through graduate school, I must admit, and I have, over the years, developed a relationship with different types of coffees for different purposes. I love Kenyan and Ethiopian coffees if I really want a jolt to the system. I also like Ethiopian coffees which are a bit more aromatic than the earthier African varieties. I know coffee and caffeine would be potentially bad for me if I over-abused them, but, in moderation, I think that caffeine can be a useful and enjoyable stimulant.

Can't work without coffee

While I do have a bit of an addiction I have to admit that I couldn't possibly live without coffee. Maybe If I didn't work or work out but even then it would still be hard to wake up.

Clear thought: Caffeine is essential in my life.

I was once forced to go a few months without caffeine. Never again! It was one of the worst experiences of my life. I was thinking clearly at all. I looked and felt like a zombie. My friends thought something was seriously medically wrong with me. This lasted several months and as soon as I was allowed to resume drinking caffeine I went back to normal.

I have to strongly disagree with you (although I obviously respect your story), but coffee always brings me benefits. I honestly can not even quantify them all. I have to say that for me, caffeine works wonderfully well.

It's almost like magic.

I don't think so

I drink coffee twice or thrice a day eversince. I haven't experience what you are saying. It makes me awake and gets me back to myself during the times that i'm getting sleepy at work and can't think anymore. My blood pressure is normal so i think it does not affect me in that way. Though i urinate mostly after drinking coffee i don't see any problem with it cause for me it's normal after drinking liquid and i think it helps in removing toxins in my body. Coffee makes me happy and i feel relax when drinking.

Coffee.

I personally don't drink coffee, however I don't see how something that stimulates you to be more awake can make prevent you from thinking clearly unless you overdose on it. Of course not only coffee includes caffeine, but other beverages, which I actually drink and they don't really stop me from being sharp.

It works for me

Not even once has it slowed me down. Coffee increases my energy, usually after lunch I tend to get sleepy and slow so I prepare a big cup of coffee so I can get my brain fully awaken to work with no issues. I didn't know how much I loved coffee but since I became an adult, it's always included in my daily routine.

Caffeine helps the brain

Soon after your first sip, caffeine begins to work its magic by causing the release of dopamine. Dopamine is a brain chemical that stimulates the area of your gray matter responsible for alertness, problem solving, and pleasure. "You have that feeling of being activated, sharper, and on the ball,And you can also experience a mild mood-elevating effect." All of which goes a long way in explaining why there are around 9,000 Starbucks outlets in the United States, and more opening every day around the globe.

Moderate intake.

As long as we are careful of the amount of caffeine that we take when we want to do so, we should always try to balance things. This is something that is important when we are talking about getting to take some drinks. Once we fail to control, then we have lost the battle.

It's psychological.

I know lots of people like me truly loves to drink coffee. But even though I love it, I don't drink it everyday. I only drink coffee every time I'm feeling unproductive or sleepy. Based on my own experience, drinking coffee helps me to actually think clearly. There are times when I'm so tired and I still have some work that needs to be done, I always drink it just to give me a boost. It also makes me energetic.

Coffee contains large amount of caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant that actually increases the activity of the brain. Numerous studies shows caffeine can give the brain a boost. But for a short amount of time only. This is the reason why some may find drinking coffee can give them an improved mood.

It can also lower your risk in some diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes or Alzheimer's. But, on the other hand, it can also cause sleep disruption and anxiety.

The most common thing that makes the coffee unhealthy is when you add sugar and creamer to it.

Caffeine is addictive. If you love to drink coffee everyday, it may cause you high tolerance to it. And maybe, that's the reason why you feel good after deciding not to drink it anymore.

Caffeine actually helps you focus and helps you concentrate on what you are doing. I have experienced this when I am in class taking down notes. I don't feel the tendency to sleep or not focus. My eyes are always on the board and my thoughts are all cleared up.

Caffeine in the form of coffee is good for you. I am wondering who thinks of these discussions because alot of them make no sense. People have been using caffeine for years to be more alert. I have never heard anyone say that caffeine keeps them from thinking clearly. What is the basis for saying this? Suffice it to say, I don't agree at all!

There's good and bad to caffeine, in my opinion. When I drink too much, it raises my blood pressure as well and makes me jittery and all wired up and prevents me from focusing on something which is obviously bad if I'm trying to think clearly. However, when I am very tired, it keeps me awake and going, almost like a rush of adrenaline that helps me push through difficult tasks. As long as I watch my intake and do not consume in excess, I think coffee is mostly beneficial for me.

Thank god I don't like coffee. I know persons who can't live without a cup of coffee. It is like their breakfast, drinking coffee on an empty stomach, such as first thing in the morning, stimulates hydrochloric acid production. Also, can stimulate peristalsis, the process in the digestive tract that makes us head for the bathroom. It is important to mention that when you drink a lot of coffee the high levels of caffeine in it can negatively your mood and your digestive system. In conclusion coffee, it is not good.

Like you made mention at the end that this is just your personal experience and not something that has been scientifically proven or one recommended to you by a trained medical practitioner, I want you to also understand that body system works differently in every human being. For instance, there are persons that if they don't take coffee or caffeine, they won't be able to work or think properly, thus reducing their working performance at the office. Although, I know some may claim that those sets of people are addicted to this but I think it may be totally wrong for people to say such since our bodies work in different ways.

I for a person don't feel okay if I don't take a glass of water or two while working for it makes me feel that dryness in me and even make my head not to work properly. So, will people say that I am addicted to water? or suggest that I stop taking water entirely? So, I think this got to do with personal experiences and discovering what works best for us.

Coffee is a natural drug, which makes you terribly addicted to it. I am not a fan of coffee because it makes me alarmed, nervous and uneasy. Also, I don`t like it, because it leaves strong stains on teeth enamel, which are hard to remove. My parents were addicted to coffee before, but they quit a few months back and feel much better now.

Coffee when taken many times a day can really wreck our health and well being. But if it is taken at least twice a day it is said to benefit our liver and help us to be alert the whole day. I for one, when I am not able to drink coffee during breakfast will feel lethargic. When I am that, I drink coffee and in a moment I feel so alive and my mind so alert. Though, I don't drink it after 1:00 in the afternoon or else, I will still be wide awake after midnight. It should just be taken moderately, once or just twice a day.

That's a really helpful advice, although I think there are lot of perks of drinking coffee at least once a day. I only drink 3-in-1 coffee mix though every morning as soon as I start working and it helps me more productive at work. Drinking coffee or other beverages with a high of amount of caffeine are really not that good for the body. I too had been addicted on drinking coffee everyday when I don't have a job as all I do is watch shows in my computer from morning up to midnight.

People may become addicted to coffee because of the effects of the caffeine content but for many, it's a substance the brings the driving force that keeps them alert and active during the day. They are able to perform more effectively when they are under the coffee influence and there are some that will tell you that without their coffee the day would probably be a letdown. I can understand if it's said that high coffee consumption could possibly bring about negative side effects, but when it comes to being productive the verdict according to many persons will be that it reallyseems enhances their work rate

A lot of people drink coffee to stay awake and be more alert. It helps them be more productive. For others if they drink too much off it they become tired and have less energy. I think I would depend on each individual person. Not all people react the same way to caffeine. It affects different people in different ways. I gave up coffee three months ago and I feel better now in the mornings then I did when I was drinking coffee but that's me. Others would not be the same way.

I think its more on psychological reaction that if you think taking too much caffeine will affect your system or taking a cup of coffee a day will help you mindset more active.

I really cannot say if coffee can interfere with our thinking but I know of several people who drink coffee when they are deep at work.

I think coffee is very much fad these days. As you can see that it stops you from thinking clearly. And that needs to be changed. Starbucks and other coffee stores need to be avoided if you want to stay healthy. You can surely make that choice by avoiding the food consumption such as that on daily basis. Instead go with the organic food. And check what is applied for you and build on that part.

I never understood the phrase everything in moderation till I started suffering withdrawal symptoms from taking too much coffee. I loved my caffeine from the smell to the taste and therefore I went all bananas on the number of coffee takes I had in a day. It got to a point that I couldn't do without it. When the headaches, bad moods and withdrawal symptoms started kicking in way more than I would have loved them too, I had to stop. and from that point on, I juggle. If I take coffee today, I'll take chocolate tomorrow or any other drink. That way, my body doesn't depend on anything. Too much of anything is poisonous.

I have gone without caffeine before, but I love my caffeine especially in the morning. It gives me the energy I need to get things done even if I haven't had enough sleep. I just like to have my cup of coffee in the morning to start my day before I get to work. I don't think it makes me think less clearly but everyone is different. If you feel better without drinking it then that is what is right for you. I probably won't stop drinking coffee or other caffeinated drinks in the future. I figure it is better to drink the coffee than soda drinks which are worse for you than coffee.

Sometimes too much coffee makes me dizzy and tired but a cup a day doesn't. I believe that it's just a matter of how your body reacts to it. Some might find it bad for their healths because they might not think clearly or get side effects. And there are some who drink coffee, enhances their senses or make their minds sharper and they are more energetic. Like I said, it's all subjective.

As much as caffeine works well for you, a time would come when it becomes an addiction and once this happens, staying without becomes very difficult and almost impossible that is where the problem comes in. If there is something you need to do focus on and handle immediately, it would become a difficult task if you don't resort to that substance that always gives you strength.

Invariably, I would say that such substances could ones judgement as it always influence ones behavior and thinking. This is not a good condition one should put himself or herself in. Avoid takes substances to help increase your vigor only to have yourself pay for it at the long run.

I really love coffee in the morning and afternoon or I'm working at night, it keeps me going. But I notice as time goes I feel dizzy and having headaches when I take too much coffee and I can feel my body shaking. I can't focus on my work and daily routine as I feel weak. I stop taking coffee and the symptoms also stop and I'm back to normal again.

Contrary to popular belief, caffeine is a drug, and people just see it like juice. I even have a young sister that loves drinking coffee all the time, and she has only just started high school a year ago. Kids are becoming addicted to caffeine at younger ages. Everyone gives meth, cocaine, and weed a bad rep, but they don't look at the mess in their backyard first. If you want to educate people at drugs, you need to become more aware of the things in your life that have potential/and or are drugs as well. Caffeine is one of them. It can make you so hyperactive. Green tea is much better to keep you awake and healthier for your body too.

I've found that I really can't drink coffee; it accelerates my heart to the point of it making me feel rather bad, so it has negative effects on my health. Of course, i'm aware I'm the minority so I can't say this is a generalized event, but regardless it's important to highlight that not all coffee side-effects are beneficial for us.

That said, I cannot really make a fair judgement on its effects upon our thoughts, but I still believe coffee can have side-effects that may vary from person to person but we must consider.

For me it depends on the amount of caffeine they are going to drink. If they drink too much, there is a possible chance of affecting our memory. I think it would be better to drink just an adequate amount of coffee, enough just to wake us up so that we don't exeperience negative effects from it.
