Coping With Coffee?

I was diagnosed with ADD in third grade and was medicated until I made the decision on my own to stop at the age of 16. I decided that ADD was just part of me and I was going to learn how to make it work in my every day life.

I have since graduated college and I am now successfully managing my life at 21. I don't know if I've grown out of my ADD or if I just learned to cope with it and create my own learning style. One thing I have noticed however is that my job performance or overall productivity is better when I start my day with a cup or two of coffee.

Has anyone else had good experiences using coffee or caffeine to manage Attention Deficit Disorder? I'm very interested if anyone else has any experiences with this, or if this is more of a placebo effect.
