haha, if you're not a smoker, not an ex smoker, and don't have a predisposition to becoming addicted to stuff. cigarettes can work. seriously, i'm not a smoker, i was a smoker for a couple years about 10 years ago but i never got addicted and stopped because i smelled bad and it was expensive. but when you don't regularly smoke and then light up, the nicotine is a pretty good stimulant. if i'm driving on a long dark lonely highway and getting tired i pull over and get a pack of cigarettes and a coffee, in addition to the nicotine keeping you up (and the coffee too) the act of smoking itself seems to keep me awake more than just having both hands on the wheel and sipping coffee every now and then. i know i may get flamed for this but hey this works for me.
oh and if its cold out, roll the window down, for me being warm makes me sleepy, being uncomfortably cold but not shivering helps keep me awake.
oh oh perhaps pull over and do some jumping jacks outside
flag a trucker down and see if he has some meth (just kidding)
in summary 1) coffee 2) tobacco 3) keep cold
