Con

  • Attention falls abruptly, after the effect of caffeine has subsided. The alertness induced by caffeine lasts only for a limited time. After the effects of caffeine has subsided, the concentration falls the more. This is dangerous especially for drivers and generally people operating some machinery.
  • Caffeine is addictive. Albeit a rather soft one, caffeine definitely is a drug, so drinking coffee can become an addiction. Quitting drinking coffee may well be accompanied by abstinence symptoms.
