I am a 21 year old male, smoker, who was a heavy and long time caffeine user for about 10 years or more. I used to consume all kinds of caffeine (Coffee, Colas, pills) for years. Friends and I would order cases of Jolt Cola and drink them all within a night. I even used to drink a soda before going to sleep and still fall asleep rather quickly. Recently I stopped all caffeine intakes for two months. I had all the withdrawals for a short time. Then after the second month I had a soda at work. I felt no different. Now I consume around 200mg of caffeine and function like I used to when I used to consume over 600mg of it. Can my body be still be overly tolerant?
