In brief: Bad idea
Any time you have had ventricular tachycardia (vtach), you need to take care of your heart.
Speak with your cardiologist about what medication they want to give you to prevent this again but anything that stresses your heart, can lead to problems. Smoking decreases oxygenation, caffeine causes too much stimulation so have a better lifestyle will be key.
