Caffeine has been called the most popular drug in the world.  All over the world people consume caffeine on a daily basis in coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, some soft drinks, and some drugs.

Too much caffeine may cause insomnia, which can manifest itself as trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.  A normal amount of caffeine consumption is about 250 milligrams per day, or the equivalent of 3, 8 ounce cups of coffee.  One study found that consuming caffeine 6 hours before bedtime reduced total sleep time by 1 hour.  These effects also can be stronger in older adults.
