I use to read reports of how some people claim caffeine ruined their life. I would sit here and think to myself how stupid these people were. I thought they were just looking for something to blame because their life wasn’t going right. I see now that I was truly wrong.

First off I arrived at my friend’s house, where the party was being held at, around 5:00. We had two half barrels of high life, two cases of cheap beer, and about 5 bottles of hard liquor. We really had a lot of alcohol for only like 20 people.

I had planned on getting totally drunk that night but I didn’t was to pass out so I bought a bottle of NoDoz. I was hoping on being totally blacked out drunk but not passed out. It was going to be great!

I could hardly wait.

So at around 5:30 I popped 4 pills and this boy was like “wow, that’s just like drinking 14 cups of coffee”. I was like “great, this should be fun”. About 20 minutes after that I got really hyper and could not stop running around the house. I felt so jacked up. It was kind of fun. Then around 6:30 I started to feel sick. My stomach really hurt and I felt like I could not drink but it was new years so I was going to anyway. I also started to worry about the silliest things. They were so stupid but I could not stop thinking about them. I than started to get really depressed over nothing. My friends would come in and ask me what was wrong because I was just sitting alone in a totally different room like some antisocial loser. I would say “these caffeine pills got me feeling weird”. Also as I drank the whole night I could not get drunk. That really pissed me off. Everybody was having a great time and mine was boring.

To make a long story short—My stomach hurt, I did not get drunk, I was really depressed and paranoid, and I was up till 6:30 in the morning. It was such a bad experience. Also trying to make myself throw up did not work. I spend about an hour trying that.

I would really like to tell everyone that caffeine is really bad for you and not to do it. I have cut all sodas with caffeine out and everything that has caffeine in it. I really think it is bad for caffeine to be legal and pot to be illegal. I mean caffeine makes people edgy, makes you look strung out, and makes your body hurt. To me caffeine is one of the worst drugs to do. Also I am very experienced in drug use. I have done just about everything that is around in the Midwest. I have even done drugs such as datura, DMT, oxycontin, crack, and pills galore so you can not say I am some inexperienced sissyboy that does not know what he is talking about.
