    We (me and my g/f) drink alot of them, i would not dare to do the maths and say how much we drink a day, that would just be too scary :p.

    yeah i drink them now n again. It helps that kick start, but i find theyre not worth it if youre covering up lack of sleep as the come down is horrible!! :D

    but when your fatigued, they work wonders. a can of red bull does give you wings :p

    but theyre not for everyone!

    i consume so many cans of energy drinks lol... it sucks that they're so expensive. but there's no way i can go on as little sleep as i do without them.

    rockstar is my favorite, but mostly because of the name :laugh:

    :laugh: I drink them everyday to wake me up at work or if i'm just tired and dont want to sleep I'll drink one. :laugh: I dont like to sleep that much that why i'm always hyper :laugh: I would say i drink about 3-4 a day.
  10. Read the label...if it contains lots of sugar and/or guarana (a far more potent/concentrated form of caffeine than even coffee) - if these are some of the first few ingredients listed, then that is what the highest content of the beverage is (besides water).

    And yes, do expect a sharp, dramatic, and disappointing "crash" once the effect wears off... Is the latter worth the former?

    i drink a lot of energy drinks too, mainly Relentless and Rockstar, some days i'll have about 6/7 of them... i always feel like im on a comedown anyway, but the stimulants make me feel better, i drink a lot of coffee as well sometimes.. only negative effect i've ever had from caffeine, (at least i think it was the caffeine, could also have been affected by lack of sleep, drugs, alcohol) was before i started drinking energy drinks when i had a real bad anxiety/panic attack.

    i dont think energy drinks are that bad, imo the sugar is the most harmful thing in them

    I can't drink any thing like that otherwise I end up hooked up to an ECG machine in hospital. I can just imagine drinking those things when I'm 'allovertheplace' I don't want to imagine how I'd be like then...:laugh:

    I drink far too many. I find them strange, because I'm bi polar, when I'm on an up, the energy drinks make me feel confident and happy, but on a bad day they make me nervous and paranoid.

    Depends how much vodka they've got in them...but without alcohol - not really. Tesco's version of Red Bull (Kick) is quite good. I love Gatorade, but I can't find it in the England...

    I used to drink about 6 a day. But when I started therapy I got told off about it a lot :dunno: So I kinda lessened it. Now it's like every once in a blue moon I buy a tray (24 cans) and with about 2 or 3 people we empty that within 2 or 3 days :dunno:

    Yeah but I don't really do it because I'd fall asleep without them. I like the way they make me feel. I'm a caffeine junky. There's this one I really like by Arizona. It's like carbonated green tea or something. Really tasty.

    I just don't like the taste. I never really liked sweet drinks. Shame, I don't like tea or coffee either. Then again, I really don't need anything else to keep me up at night... :laugh:
