  1. 1. Do you drink energy drinks



Recommended Posts

On today tonight tonight there was a story on energy drinks and how safe they are and all that crap. We've been seeing this since they came around years ago, somone drinks 10-12 in less then an hour and commits a robbery, blames the drinks.

 

i wanna no what you guys think.

do you drink them ?

if so how many.

do you think there unsafe, and feel the need to tell everyone that you see drinking them

or do you feel people should harden then f*ck up, and take the suffer the conscequence for thier actions.

I dont really drink them that often. I believe they are dangerous if you drink a large quantity of them in a small space of time. My friend did this and we had to call an ambulance as he collapsed and his heart was beating stupidly fast. The recommended amount is a guideline, you could get away with having maybe a couple more, but it depends on how your body reacts to it I guess.

I used to drink 1-2 a day, for a few months straight. Started getting the shakes randomly, stopped drinking them and the shakes stopped too.

 

Now i only drink them on occasion

I don't drink them if I can avoid them but I do like some like, V, Monster and Mother.

 

If I drink even just a small 250m one, the next day I feel like shit. Feel worse then I did before I drank it but coming off of 12hour night shift they can help at the time. They don't make me feel more awake, just I can't sleep but feel tired.

 

I don't think they are dangerous, just the people who drink heaps of them in a short time, are stupid. If your going nuts on them, then yeah, just like booze, your going to have a problem.

 

EDIT: they also make me shake after having one. It's just the crazy amounts of sugar and caffeine then having a crash and makes you feel like you need more.

Apologise i didnt realise there was one already. Shoulda done a better search.

 

i was a massive fan of them for a while, then found them just not working, so slowed down, only really drink on the weekend, i wont lie, ill smash a fair few vodka redulls on a night, and be sweet. i just enjoy the taste.

I love energy drinks, they are awesome. I buy a 4 pack (500ml) of either mother or 6 pack (500ml) of wicked every 1-2 nights cause they are cheap and I enjoy the little extra adrenaline rush (not lately though as I cbf going to servo late at night). They are pretty addictive and I down that shit all in one night. But then again, my sleeping pattern is fkd and I don't sleep until late morning.. I would look like this after 2-3 cans of 500ml energy drink --> Drugs_0541.gif

 

And no I don't think it's unsafe to drink them.. Throughout the day I would grab one everytime I grab something to eat, feel fine..

Can't stand most of the soft drinks + energy drinks anymore, they can make you feel crappy. Water is the best drink.

 

I was going to suggest that they'd give people mad anxiety but then I've had anxiety problems and I buy at least 2 coffees a day.

 

I'm not even going to respond to what today/tonight said, blaming your actions on an energy drink is just retarded.

I love the taste of most of them (except red bull) but try and stay away from them because they really are unhealthy. Also get the shakes etc if i have more than one.

 

Used to drink alcoholic ones back when i was 18 because they were cheap as, smashed about 14 in a night once... didnt sleep, was shaking and heart hurt all day.... wasnt good. Never again.

i started drinking them at random, then went to buying at least 1 a day and finally got to the point of just buying boxes as it was cheaper. then in year 12 at school i did a biology assignment on them got scared out of my mind and went cold turkey! now i drink them in small amounts which is still bad but i know the risks. i have no more than 1 a week.

 

 

some are worse than others but like it has already been said they are like cig's :(

 

 

 

(if anybody is actually more interested PM me and i could prob dig up some old info for you)

I like v and redbull but usually don't drink much because they're so damn expensive and I'd prefer beer. Having said that, every now and then i end up with a free case at my disposal and go nuts...can't drink too much though because they give me the shakes as well lol. Lately the shell servos have had the 8 500ml cans for $12.95 so I take em to work and have one of those a day

The chemicals in energy drinks are classes as mutagens, they cause mutations in DNA, which in turn CAN cause cancer.

 

Coffee is far better for you.
