This is not a survey. Does anyone else here enjoy the odd coffee each day or a can of Red Bull? Do you rely on energy drinks to get you through a hectic day?
I was just wondering, because with such a busy life style, i almost live on borrowed energy, including coffee and energy drinks every day of the week apart from maybe the weekend.

I have to admit i love coffee, i really like the taste of it, and the plus side is that it has caffeine in it. The bad thing is because i drink it every day it doesn't really have much effect on me in terms of energy perk. I drink about two to three coffee's at University during the day, but for a real boost i find myself buying canned energy drinks with my lunch instead of a normal drink. I'm not the only one though, most of my friends do too. What io find bad about this is that they always leave you feeling more thirsty.

So my other question is this - What is your preferred energy drink?

I used to drink Relentless for a while until discovered Monster which i liked the taste of more. now recently i have found a different energy drink which is still and refreshing as well as full of Caffeine, Taurine, Ginseng and all those things. It's called "Rockstar - Recovery", they make others, but this one in particular i like.



Or do you despise energy drinks and prefer an isotonic or electrolyte recovery drink?

I drink 10-14 cups of black coffee a day. I can do without coffee, but it helps keeping my mood where it should be. I drink coffee with every meal, many days it's the only thing I drink.

I don't drink other energy drinks often, but I do like Red Bull. Actually I like its effect more than its taste. I don't get that effect from coffee. It happens I drink it if I have do drive long distances and feel tired. Coffee doesn't make me more awake, maybe because my body has a high caffeine tolerance.

a cup or two of coffee is all i need in the mornings to get me going... i used to drink energy drinks but once i discovered how bad they are for you, i don't mess with them anymore... i used to drink "red bull" and my favorite was "full throttle" but nowadays, i just drink water... water gives me all i need...

plus, energy drinks aren't cheap, averaging around $2.50-$3.00 a can here... considering that price daily, your looking at more than $600 a year for a quick pick-me-up that does more damage than good an hour later when your falling asleep at work because your mind went into hyper-drive for an hour... all that energy spent wears you out and makes you EXTEMELY tired afterwards... and what do most do when they feel tired? they drink another one...

seriously, if anyone ever listens to me, now would be the time... stop drinking energy drinks before it's long term effects ruin your long-term health... buy a brita water filtration system and enjoy fresh clean water for the rest of your life...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I'm aware of the damage energy drinks do to you. That was the main reason i didn't drink them for years. Now i just drink them because most nights I'm up doing course work after i get my Son to bed, and i need to meet my latest deadlines.

as long as your aware tongue.gif... and in moderation, they're not bad... but, daily or twice daily isn't good for you, nor is what demon said in drinking 10-14 cups of coffee... there is a such thing as overkill...

full throttle was my favorite flavored energy drink though...

I've been known to drink some Red Bull. Not daily, but a couple times a week. If I want to stay up playing videogames, I usually grab one as they certainly do the trick. If I know I have a long day, I'll have one as well. I used to drink them a lot more, almost like soda. I once managed to take a case (24) from a bar I worked at and they were gone within a week. My roommate had a few, but needless to say, I didn't sleep much that week. I also don't drink coffee, but I will have a Red Bull for breakfast if I'm having a hard time waking up.

Also, the first drink I bought my wife - when we were dating was a Redbull and Vodka. She hates Red Bull, but she drank it anyway.

I've used Monster for a wake-me-up after a long night but I usually make it through a day fine without energy drinks. I hate coffee.

The only energy drink I've tried is that 5-hour energy stuff, and I only tried that once. I know it's supposed to boost your energy, but when I sat around at work fidgeting for 3 hours thanks to the rush it provides, I decided I didn't need that crap anymore. Not to mention it tasted like pasteurized ass.

I can't comment on the rest of the energy drinks, though. I haven't tried them, so I don't know what to make of them. But they are a little expensive, so I'll probably just let someone else drink that stuff. I do enjoy the occassional cup of coffee, but it has to be triple cream and triple sugar (like, take a trip to the dentist, eh!) or else I won't touch it.

My drink of choice to get me through is Mountain Dew. Not the code red crap, or the whiteout junk, but good old-fashioned throwback dew. If I need a boost, I'll chug down one of those bad boys.

My Uni were giving those shots away for free a few months back because no-one would buy them. So i took two before a seminar. I normally sit there in a daz ready to fall asleep... This time i was jittering all over the fucking joint. I felt like i was having a fit. I'm never touching one of those again!


Oh yeah and i saw that on Top Gear over Christmas, i may have to acquire many Pussy's also.

I never touch the stuff. Only time I ever have energy drinks is when I mix them with alcohol - Jager Monster or Vodka Redbull. Water does the job well enough for me. Although I do drink Lucozade Sport when I'm playing footy and stuff. Mostof my mates at uni are constantly drinking energy drinks or popping caffeine pills and it can't be good for you. I tend to notice most of the people who drink energy drinks all day are the sad fuckers who stay up all night playing World of Gaycraft. And their face is covered in spots. Is that caused by the energy drinks, or is it natural to scare away girls? Who knows, but I don't want my face looking like that. In conclusion, be a man, don't drink no energy drinks, FOOL!

Well i would give them up if i didn't have up to 20 hour days during the week which happens regularly. What with bundles of coursework and spending time with the family not to mention fitting in time to play my PS3!

I'm looking forward to summer though. I don't ever touch them over summer, and I barley drink coffee mainly because of the heat. It's like my yearly detox period.

If you start to feel a bit tired, get someone to sneakily smack you across the back of the head with a spoon. If they don't knock you out, you'll be angry and that will keep you awake. Problem solved smile.gif

Well, I have a bit of an addictive personality and since I gave up smoking weed and various other drugs, I seem to have replaced them with energy drinks. I used to drink mainly coffee, but that doesn't cut it anymore and the only energy drink that seems to do anything anymore is Monster. I know about the health risks and maybe in a couple of years when my kids are a bit older and my life isn't so hectic I might be rid of them, for now though, I doubt it.

Coffee is healthy.
The first time I drank Red Bull, my heart rate went a bit crazy and I felt it in my chest. It was very hot, somewhere around 40 degrees Celsius, so that could have increased the reaction. Later I didn't get that much of a physical effect, and if I drink one now I'll not feel it physically at all.

Then what is your definition of healthy? I call it healthy if it does more good than bad. Coffee does that.
I wouldn't trust Wikipedia too much, but the full health effects of coffee article on Wikipedia is just one click from your link.
