I have never tried one. I think that most of the people that I see drinking them never seem to have any energy.

And yet they keep buying them.

Does coffee count? Other than that not very often. Maybe 1-3 times a year I will drink a rockstar when I need a jolt.

20 oz coffee followed by a monster chaos every morning. I have to work, then chase my 2 year old around outside everyday.

I used to a few times a week. I cut back when I started thinking about them a lot. I am about twice a month now. One of my friends goes thru a four pack every day.
A four pack a day! Yikes :eek:

I drink a cup of coffee in the morning, a couple 12 oz mountain dews throughout the day and maybe an amp or monster in the afternoon.

My wife is quite health conscious and is always getting on me for drinking anything with high fructose corn syrup in but having a YETI cooler in the van with drinks in all the time doesnt help.

I think a lot of it is in your head but monster does have a good taste :whistling

I know a few guys who do about 3 of the giant cans a day.

I used to drink about 8 cans of coke a day to get energy. The more I drunk the less energy I felt I had so drunk more. I ain't had a coke now in about 2 years and don't need any energy drinks to get me through a day.

I won't drink more than 1 a day. I drank 3 in a day once and thought I was going to die my heart was beating so fast

I used to have one (green Monster) a day for my morning drink. I have cut way back. They just can't be good for you. I never really felt like gave me more energy, I just like the taste.

Nope. I drink a lot of coffee in the mornings and early afternoon. I used to take a 5 hour energy if I was out all night on a fire call and didnt get any sleep. Now I just trudge through it.

2 cups of coffee every morning. More in the winter. 5 hour energy sometimes- maybe once a month- in the evening. Probably a gallon and a half of water a day. Doubt I've drank a six pack of soda in the last 10 years.

I was up to 40oz of Redbull every day. I went cold turkey for a while. Now I only grab one of the small 8oz cans if I have a long drive home or if I have to run out at night for estimates.

Those things are not healthy at all. If you need them to get through the day you are not allowing your body to regulate itself. You need to get energy naturally through good wholesome food and lots of water to help flush out the bad stuff.
