DOSE:
500 mg oral Caffeine (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 155 lb


I decided to try caffiene to help me study. I did'nt realize I could become dependent upon it so quickly. I would take 2 to 3 tabs of caffiene (400-600mg) in the morning to help me stay focused during my Algebra class. This worked for about 2 weeks and then my tolerance started to build up. I began to crash before my math class. This started to worry me, for I now depended upon caffiene to get me through the class. I started to take more and more util my tolerance had reached a very high level (1000 to 1200 mg to get the desired effect).

Well after this coming up and then coming down I was beginning to realize I was really addicted. I decided to quit using caffiene for a week. I expected no or slight cravings. Oh shit....I didnt think that I would crave this much...I cant take it ... I feel so drowsy all of the time. I feel as if I cant do near the stuff I could do on caffiene. I guess I can get through another few days...just so I can get that great buzz I got the first or second time I did caffiene

Oh, yeah and I learned not to take so much caffiene that you cant handle it... I'm still gettin' over this bitch!

Beside all the negative stuff, caffiene can be a good thing to use.. if you take caution ... Just be reasonable with the dosage... just have a good time
