Back when I was young, around my early to later 20's I could drink a pot of coffee and go right to bed. Once I reached 30 caffeine totally KICKS MY ASS!! I don't dare even drink it after 6pm or come 10pm when I try to go to sleep, I won't be able to.

 

So what about everyone else?

 

I'm 34!

The opposite here.  When I was a kid in my teens and 20's it would get me wired and I wouldn't be able to sleep.  Nowadays a nice cup of coffee before bed doesn't phase me in the least.. I'm comatose 5 minutes after my head hits the pillow, especially during the winter when I typically sleep a lot deeper.

for sure,  cannot have coffee after 6 pm, and i avoid it if i can after 2pm

 

i dont have such severe reaction to caffeine in tea or yerba mate, so i prefer to avoid coffee altogether and drink green tea / yerba mate

 

 

it was always interfering, but it became much more noticeable with age (i am a few years past 30)

If I drink coffee after about 3pm or so it kinda ###### with my sleep.  Not terribly so, but enough to have largely gotten me to stop drinking coffee so late.  I'm 26.

Depends on the amount of caffeine. But usually a cup doesn't affect me at all. And it's not because I've drunk coffee all my life.

I drank so much caffeine in College that it no longer affects me, I can devour a 500ml can of Relentless and go right to sleep.

 

22 here.

26, and nope. I remember once I had coffee because I wanted to pull an all nighter when I was 8 - fell right asleep. To this day, doesn't bother me at all.

I think I didn't really care what effect various drugs and stimulants had on me when I was younger. I was up all night most of the time and the cause was probably coffee, but I don't think I really realized it until I was in my mid 30s.

i'm over 30 and a few cups of coffee don't bother me, but if i drink an energy drink, that sometimes (maybe 1 out of 4 times) will keep me awake.  (it might be the combo of caffiene and the B vitamins?  or..  i dunno)
