From BBC News comes “Coffee ‘no boost in the morning.'” From the article:
Those who swear by their morning caffeine fix say it wakes them up, and if they missed out they would feel sluggish and unable to get on with their day.
But the Bristol researchers, who carried out a review of previous studies into the effects of caffeine, say all the drink does is counteract the mild caffeine withdrawal symptoms people are experiencing because they have gone without the stimulant overnight.
First off, I don’t think I buy this. But second, who the hell cares? If coffee is my morning methadone, so be it.
