If caffeine has this much affect on me...
I don't want to know what anything harder does.

Let's just say that 32 ounces of coffee on a relatively empty stomach is pretty much a surefire route to a caffeine bender.

Apparently the Center of Addiction and Substance Abuse has identified caffeine as a "gateway drug" in young women, saying that young women who drink coffee are more likely than those who don't to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes. Yes, well, a significant portion of the young women who don't drink coffee are Mormon. If you controlled for religion, would the same results occur? I'm not sure.
