Just wanted to share this with you all, since there has been discussion as to whether coffee was a drug.

More psychoactive substances on: http://www.erowid.org/splash.php



Acute Manic Attack
Caffeine
by Crackerboy O'Brien

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



DOSE : oral Caffeine (liquid)


Just thought you guys be interested in a little bit of excitement that came my way last night...

After drinking an entire pot of coffee in less than an hour, around 4 AM this morning I became completely and utterly convinced that the world was going to end at exactly 6:11 AM this morning, just before first light. I'm not making this up. I completely lost my shit in a way that I have never lost it before.

I was so freaked out, I wanted to die. Not to kill myself, just die. I had absolutely no desire to write, speak, eat, blow my nose, kiss, think or be in general...I wanted to die and I was convinced that when the world did end in a blaze of hellfire, I was gonna be judged by the Lord Almighty and burn for eternity. I wrote four pages about it in my journal as I was hip deep in the shitpool that was a stimulant overdose induced, acute manic/paranoiac attack that triggered some sort of neoclassical, metaphysical, socio-religious and philosophical crisis.

Needless to say this sucked real bad, and I didn't real start to come down off this until around 5 in the morning. This particularly blew 'cos I had two labs to finish by today (already late...I only ended up getting one done), and I didn't feel a hell of a lot of incentive to expound on the vibrational-rotational modes of carbon dioxide molecules being that the world was going to come to a screeching halt and I was hurtling toward that inevitable eternity of suffering and agony reserved for unrepentant pagans and unbelievers like m'self...

I fully snapped out of it at 6:20 and now my stomach feels like I swallowed a pound of Drain-O and pixie stick cocktails...

If anyone ever tells you caffeine is not a psychoactive drug when taken in significantly large quantities, spit on their nose. And if you find the bastard that sprinkled LSD on my French Roast, cut out his tongue...

I had to look up the definition of psychoactive... basically "Affecting the mind or mental processes.". Sure, that sounds like caffiene.
The word 'psychoactive" makes it sound like the topic is LSD.
I hate coffee, but just cuz it tastes awful.
Some caffeinated products I appreciate:

By that argument, merely the act of legalising it should leave a number of deaths in it's wake.

If you read the article that Sabby quoted, it actually is about LSD, because it's a shaggy dog tale. You get led into a story about caffeine and eventually find out his French Roast was laced with LSD.

IMO coffee itself isn't exactly a drug, but caffeine sure is. It's probably a matter of concentration and quantity.
For my two colleagues who have 20 espresso cups every day I would say that it is a drug. And maybe my three daily espressos as well.

so it's only a drug if you overindulge? any drug can be used responsibly, but it's still a drug. caffine included.

most imp. and underestimated fact is, see to sufficient sleep (6 or 7,5 ...4 1/5 hours -- izzh) then all new infos will get saved. And a moss cushion ..ev'rifun for relaxing the lame limbs. PerFkat.

ps- repetitions on nex' day, another we/-\k, a mumpff, half year. SOs.

pppppps- dozen matter how many of these very short awakenings you might think over. N.B.: relishing a cuppuh after 5 laughternoony and one's a night owl - hoohooo.

You can use your grinder to chop nuts to put on a fudge sundae.
If you grind long enough, you can actually make peanut butter in less than a minute.

For peanuts you need saltless peanuts... and they're not easy to get by... But it's worth a try!

I did the exact same thing when i was 19 and had the jitters from a complete coffee OD. I got the cold numb lips and hyperventilated etc.

I also had kidney stones from drinking too much coffee. (the urologist told me that was one of my problems along with too much beer and genes)

So yea it's a drug.
