In brief: No

If shorter in stature, caffeine is not the likely cause.
Please remember, however, that caffeine is a drug, whether we like to recognize it or not. It does not provide energy, it causes its consumption and is remarkably addictive because of the "kick" that it produces. It is one of the common drugs that afflict millions of people throughout theworld.
