Do you consume "energy" drinks?

If so, what do you prefer? And how much/how often do you consume?

I drink coffee once or twice per week.

I think I just had my first redbull since college.

I'm coffee, water and beer until recently when a biometric screening revealed that I have low LDL. So now I have added a glass of red wine to my evening along with some other things to try and increase that. So no to the energy drinks. Just strong, black coffee for me up until a little before lunch time every day. Then water till dinner. Beer and wine once the baby is in bed.

Never had a Redbull or any such drink... never tried a "5 hour energy" either...

I do however drink a large coffee in the morning and usually take a pre-workout, almost all of which have caffeine, prior to my afternoon workout.

...and it's interesting to note that caffeine is one of those rule breaker ie/ei words. Weird. Hey, weird is too...

The smell of Redbull males me nauseous.

I'll drink a cup or two of coffee per day.

I drink sugar-free RedBull, usually 2x 12oz a day. I got on the sugar-free after that was all the Bossman had at his condo & I knew we werent going to stop on the way to the convention. Never felt the crash of a regular until I didnt feel it from a sugar-free, havent looked back since. I will go through about 5 on poker Saturdays, 2 at work & 3 during the game...

Although, just last week I didnt have any for 3 days. I felt great. I will open the first of the day just because, after that I feel like I need it. But after last week's revelation I am seriously reconsidering continued consumption...

Daily I drink 2 Monsters (The new white can), 1 cup off coffee, and a mid day Xtra strength 5 hour energy after lunch. There is an office pool on which date my heart is going to explode.

On my desk now:

JR I figured you'd have an IV drip set up.

I went through a phase where I drank Monster a lot. I think red bull tastes a little better but it also costs more so I never really drank it. Lately I've been using powder caffeine, which is cheaper and works really well. http://www.amazon.com/Caffeine-Anhydrous-Alertness-NuSci-HerbStoreUSA/dp/B0045RYE0Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359400521&sr=8-1&keywords=caffeine+powder

I dont really drink caffeine much anyways, I'm trying to avoid using it to wake up every morning until I'm older.

hmmm..interesting.


Does Ebay sell IV drip kits? Would cut down on all that useless arm motion of having to lift the can to my lips all day long.

I used to really like what was then a little known energy drink, I could only find it at a couple gas stations. Then some redneck started endorsing it and it was everywhere, Mt. Dew Amp.

I don't drink energy drinks anymore.

Red Bull is terrible btw, just turrible
