most commonly found in coffee, tea and
soft drinks. According to University

and can last up to six hours.
A UHS informational booklet noted

that 'hopped-up feeling' that caffeine
gives you. I always have a hot cup ofjoe
in the morning, but if I'm going to have

When used in moderation, caffeine
can be a great study aid, but then again,
nothing beats a good night's sleep.
