      Anyone like energy drinks? I am addicted to them as I do not like coffee and tea so I have them instead.

      Used to drink them myself but I went right off them a few years ago now. I tend to drink tea alot so getting rid of the energy drinks wasn't really a huge problem :)

      I'm the same way. Coffee upsets my stomach a lot, so I turn to energy drinks for my source of caffeine. Unfortunately, I can't feel like I can function for the tasks I need to perform at work without caffeine, so it's a bit of a problem. I definitely need to put them down soon, as I've been having worries about my health with how much I drink.

      I used to drink energy drink specially when i was in third shift or grave yard at work before. I believe that drinking it helps me to stay awake and energetic at night. Although now that i am not working there anymore, i am drinking juices than energy drink.

      i don't use them, they feel pointless and they don't work for me or at least i don't feel something different, maybe it's just me.

      I'm not sure if Ensure is an energy drink. But, I used to drink one of those every night before I go to bed. Man it was so good! I wish I still had them. It feels like a whole meal!

      Ensure's actually like a meal replacement type drink. Somewhat similar to Slimfast.

      Today I made a pact to stop drinking energy drinks though. Once I can ween off the caffeine, my next step is to try and quick smoking. I figured I'd do without caffeine first, since having caffeine makes you crave cigarettes more.

      Sounds like a good plan Sky9Media :)

      My main reason for giving up the energy drinks was because of how not good for you they are to be honest, especially the non sugar free ones.

      EWWWW YUCKKK! The only energy drink I have every tried is the green can of Monster about 5 years ago and it was disgusting. Other energy drinks might taste different but I am never going to try another one again.

      I used to purchase boxes of powdered energy drinks before and drink it whenever I needed it back when I was in college and worked at the same time. I thought that I needed some extra strength but I noticed that it only made me sleep less. So I stopped drinking it. I am taking coffee every morning and at the afternoon and I don't want to get too much caffeine.

      I drink energy drinks while I'm at work to stay perked up and alert. My favorite ones are Monster and Red Bull because of the taste. I also love coffee though.:beerbang:

      I'm against energy drinks as they can deteriorate your health in the long run really.

      My cousin drinks at least 3 cans of red bull a day and is now making herself ill. I however only have 1 can a fortnight and only if I feel I really need it. Not being a fan of coffee that is.

      I have those days myself and they are awful to try and get through, on days like those if I did like those drinks I would more than likely drink more than I should, so that is one reason I am thankful I do not like them.
