Irregular Heartbeat
by Tuscani
Citation:   Tuscani. "Irregular Heartbeat: An Experience with Caffeine (exp18257)". Oct 17, 2002.

  oral Caffeine (daily)


Many people do not consider caffeine to be a drug. I'll admit, it's extremely weak compared to other stimulants. I never used caffeine for a high, but rather I consume it every day in soda, etc.

I do not like the taste of water, and hence never drink it. Instead I consume at least a liter of soda a day (Regular, caffeinated) as well as Coffee, chocolate, and Iced Tea (not the shitty REAL kind, the powdered kind :) )

Anyway, I've been doing this my whole life. I realized I really am addicted to caffeine. I have a permanantly irregular heartbeat which I attribute to all the caffeine.. I haven't ever been sick from it yet, but sometimes my heartbeat will increase VERY fast at a random time.

When I do not consume caffeine I feel very very tired, almost like I have a hangover. When I consume ALOT (more then my normal dose) I get a hyperactive mild-stimulant feeling.

Anyway, I just wanted to share.. I couldn't live without my sweet sweet caffeine!
