responsibly, treating them with respect and awareness,
working to minimize harms and maximize benefits, and

Caffeine Sweats

  oral Caffeine (cookie / food)


I never, ever drink coffee, tea, coca-cola or any other caffeine containing drinks. I don't like thermally hot drinks and can't stand the taste of coke. So I could be classed as a caffeine virgin. Occasionally (once or twice a year?) I would have a cup of black coffee to help me study all night... It always made me feel pretty rotten.

One Christmas when I was around 17 I got a bag of chocolate covered coffee bean sweets. They were pretty nice. Very nice in fact and I kept dipping into them. By the time it was go to to bed I'd had the whole bag of them. Not an inconsiderable amount - in fact I would estimate it was the equivalent of over 15 cups of coffee. I had no intention at all of getting high, in fact this never crossed my mind. However, when I got to bed I could not sleep at all. I was incredibly restless, I had terrible sweats and my mind was racing. I felt sick. I probably got to sleep at about 4 am. I am still off the coffee and this wasn't an experience I want to repeat but thought it was worth reporting to show how potent caffeine can be.
