> I believe anything stimulating is something people with ADHD are drawn to. My coffee habit was the first signal to my doctors that perhaps ADHD is an issue. I read somewhere how drinking coffee is "your body's pitiful attempt to raise dopamine levels."

I agree with that. I'm convinced as ever that I have comorbid ADHD with my bipolar. I used to drink coffee and caffeinated soda and chain smoke nonstop all day in my '20's (up to 3 packs a day). When I stopped smoking, there would be a rebound effect that persisted for several weeks of extreme confusion, inability to concentrate. Hopefully they will come up with a nicotinic receptor drug for ADHD that is nonstimulant.
