I really feel the need to comment on the power of caffeine. By the end of a semester, I'll notice myself drinking multiple cups of coffee per day like it's absolutely nothing. When I am home for breaks, I hardly touch coffee except for maybe an occasional cup here or there with breakfast, but at home I never find myself looking for it to stay alert and awake. At the beginning of this past Spring semester, on the first day of classes, I drank a large coffee in the morning and found myself WIRED, and jumpy, and almost high. After being home from break and not touching much caffeine, to guzzling a few cups of coffee before class, my tolerance for caffeine was low. Going from no caffeine to a high dose of caffeine made me see why it actually is a drug and is definitely an addictive stimulant in some way or another.
