    ^^^^ Don't drink them. That stuff is bad for you in the long run. And you get addicted to it.
    Go to bed earlier and get exercise if you need to stay awake during the day.:cool:

    As a bartender few things make me cringe as much as someone asking for a vodka and Red Bull/Monster/Rockstar etc.

    Mnster itself does very little for me, but alcohol makes me tired; so the monster counteracts that nicely.

    I take 5 hour energy shots before work sometimes, they do work. Being on third shift, it's a huge difference between the half asleep feeling I normally have and the pumped up and feeling great I get with the 5 hour shots. No drop off or crash, I don't find them addictive and they are working now just as well as they were a year ago.

    Much better than any of the other products on the market. Though nothing beats a good cup of Coffee. :pccoffee:

    caffene has no affect on me anymore. And I don't like the taste, so it's counterproductive

    I love drinking Monster, the taste is great. I don't feel very energized afterward though. :D

    Nothing like keeping the windows half cracked cruising 5 below the speed limit on the parkway with a flat bill hat and some Monster.

    Yuck!

    Jager is gross to begin with...then add redbull on top of that...

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    I personally don't drink any energy drinks. I have a cup of coffee in the morning when I get to work and a tea for lunch and that's the extent of my caffeine intake. I do this thing called SLEEP (at least 8 hours a night). It does wonders for my energy level during the day. I good way to prevent that 2:30 crash is to not eat a huge lunch. I eat a sandwich for lunch then I will have a snack at 2:30-3:00.

    never got on energy drinks, dont plan on it, dont do it, if you stop you will get headaches for a while

    i did it with Dr. Pepper believe it or not, say about 4 or 5 cans a day more on some days......stopped cold turkey, talk about a head ache

    its amazing how addictive it actually was though, even if they werent energy drinks

    plus it will save you money if you dont start drinking them

    Red Bull rarely but Coffee every morning. A good breakfast, diet, and regular exercise, will do more for your energy level than anything else you can put into your body. Even something as small as a 10 minute walk around the block. Plus no crash.
