Energy drinks

    I've become hopelessly addicted to energy drinks, and I don't know what to do about it.
    They're overpriced, and I hate the thought of consuming so much sugar.
    I don't drink soda. I don't eat much sugar, accept for the occassional jamaica or tamarindo at the tacqueria. And even then, I'll only drink the jamaica at some tacquerias. Some of them make it too sweet.
    But I can't stop drinking these energy drinks.
    Red Bull, Adrenaline Rush, Monster, Red Jak, Bookoo, RockStar, etc.

    Forget the sugar, how much are those things costing you a day?

    Have you considered switching to cocaine for your daily pick-me-up?

    I guess you need to find out why you need these energy drinks.

    Other supplements can replace them, but if the problem is $, then you're just spending it on something else.

    I read somewhere that it's not really good to drink too many of those drinks in one day.

    I believe the article said no more than three in a day.

    Myself, I've never really got into those. I'll just get a Mt. Dew for a quick pick me up (of course that's not good for you either).

    That's the route I take.

    I once drank eight cans of Mountain Dew in a single evening during a road trip.

    How did you feel after that?

    They were spread out over an evening, so the effect wasn't too extreme. I don't remember getting to sleep very easily, though.

    I'm with Doc. An 8-ball is probably cheaper.

    I stick to coffee and Coca-Cola Classic.

    Last night I had eight beers and then went to IHOP and drank six cups of coffee. I could feel my heart trying to explode.

    I just can't believe anyone would drink RockStar. That stuff's so bad, it ought to be served in the Notre Dame press box.
