    I've been addicted for 1 year now. Until 2 months ago i drunk 1 or 2 cans per day. In last 2 months, i drink 4-5 daily. I need energy for studying (as this is the only thing that makes sense in my life at the moment). Beside that, i become less depressed as soon as i empty the can. Does anyone have a simmilar problem?

    I used to drink quite a few per day. Either NOS or Amp drinks, especially when I was in college and had to get up early. Now I just drink a lot of coffee....the energy drinks got too expensive for me.

    It's the caffeine I'm addicted to. If I go without it for a few days I tend to get pretty depressed, and very tired and lethargic. When I was studying I almost always had a caffeinated beverage with me though.

    Coffee and tea (caffeinated), certainly. Energy drinks, no. Don't like the sugar. Normal daily coffee intake can be measured in pots.

    I haven't had an energy drink in a long time, but i use to drink 4 cans a day, i blame the shop that sold them, 4 for a pound how could you possibly resist that bargain :biggrin:

    These days my only caffeine intake is through 2 or 3 cups of tea day.

    Anyone tried those energy shots? they don't taste very nice but i felt very weird after having one.

    I haven't drank energy drinks in a long, long time. In high school, though, I felt as if I had to have them to get through the day. I would drink 2-3 a day. Now, I'm more addicted to soda and coffee.

    Oh, energy drinks are my heaven.

    A can of Monster/ Relentless/ No Fear at a quid each, I'll get as many as I can daily. I normally have like a few quid, so I'll get like 2 cans, but if I have more money, I get as much as I can afford.

    Once bought 12 cans :3

    I used to drink a can or bottle of NOS each day (a can had 260 mg of caffeine whilst the bottle had 340 mg of caffeine). I also loved the amp drinks too.

    Now I just drink coffee. Usually 3 to 4 cups a day. When I go without it for a few days I get bad headaches which can't be good hehe.

    My energy drink used to be 0.25 of a gram of amphetamine in a pint of beer.

    I guess it would be futile trying to recreate that high energy buzz with Red Bull and other caffeine laden products.

    I do like coffee though - like the mild buzz it brings.

    my energy drink of choice is relentless.

    i love it- i can buy it from my local store as part of their meal deal- £3 for a drink, a bag of crisps and a sandwich- not too bad

    wow addicted to energy drinks, never herd of this nor do I understand it. I use to drink 3 a night when i drived to stay awake, but the humming of a diseal put me to sleep real quick, whammy right in a car.

    When I was younger, since I am born of a pot head, i don't have energy like most people. When my friends could stay up 24+ hrs without any assistance or struggle, i drank 1 can of dew an hour after the 16th hour passed. It would work until i skipped an hour then, whammy pass out time.

    I was never addicted, i didn't have an 'urge' just used it to keep up with normal people.
