Snorting caffeine in the morning before shacharis (prayers)


It is really forbidden to eat and drink before the prayers, however nowadays we are extremely lenient in this matter because even though we are living much longer (emptier) lives, we are much much weaker and frail, and therefore we allow ourselves to snack before the prayer. However, obviously this should be kept to the barest minimum. So the question presents itself, if a person can get the caffeine kick he needs by snorting it, should he not be forbidden to drink coffee? Even still, it seems in my humble opinion that this is not incumbent, because snorting caffeine is not the regular operation of the body, and therefore one does not have to resort to it, I would even go so far to say, that better than being a fanatic about this and insisting on snorting your caffeine, just drink it like everybody else. There are great secrets in coffee (one should have double coffee 2*185 to get 370 lights of the supernal countenance...).
