I was doing some writing this morning and for some reason I started thinking about Tea and my relationship with this most wonderful of drinks.

I'm a recovering addict, alcoholic, rent boy, I could go on.

Now it transpires that "I'm addicted to bloody tea" I have to admit that I could drink tea for England.

I had never ever considered caffiene a problem but its all there in black and white:

I suffer from very nearly every one of those negative effects of tea........ I could weep!

Its a good job I have a very warped sense of humour.

Is there no end to these ism's?

Dan

Hey Dan switch to green tea. At least it is good for you.

Mikey,

Would you believe it says that I take in too much caffiene? ;\)

Dan,

Green tea is good for you. It contains L-Theanine (or that's where they get it from) and that promotes relaxation and reduces stress. Which is good for us.

Bill

Oh shit!

"Caffeinism" is thought to occur if you have an intake of above 600mg to 750mg of caffeine per day. Drinking more than 1000mg per day is well into the toxic range.
I get my 1000mg dose before lunch!

Lose weight, give up smoking, drink less, and now cut down my coffee.
But will I live forever?

I was doing okay. Now I work in a place where there is literally no end to free coffee.

I told myself fine, I'll just drink coffee at work and stop buying it at the house, at least that way I'll go home in the afternoon and be caffiene-free all night. Then they asked me to work nights. Now I look like that face.
