“Put that in your pipe and smoke it” is a really bad idea when it comes to coffee.
Teens have begun adding coffee to the tobacco in their cigarettes as a way of getting more caffeine more quickly. This trend was recently explored by a reporter from the HBO newsmagazine Vice.
Reporter, Jules Suzdaltsev, found that mixing coffee grounds tobacco was quite unpleasant. He tried smoking coffee in a pipe, and it gave him a migraine and made him feel quite sick.
In the opinion of most experts smoking coffee can easily result in a caffeine overdose, a condition characterized by vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, difficulty breathing, and irregular heart beat.
It has long been known that hypnosis can help people stop smoking. And, if smoking coffee grounds in a pipe becomes popular, it may well be that I will have hypnotherapy clients wanting help in stopping the coffee smoking habit as well.
In my Atlanta hypnotherapy practice over the years a small percentage of my clients who come for stop smoking programs will ask for simultaneous help in eliminating their coffee habit. And, usually it’s easy to help them eliminate both habits quickly.
Smoking coffee is a bad idea whether it’s mixed with tobacco or not. Ideally, parents will discourage their teens from beginning with tobacco smoking as well. However, we all know that parental influence is not always enough. And even though my clients tell me that their parents discourage them from smoking when they were teens, many of them are in their 40s or 50s before they actually make a decision to free themselves from tobacco.
