Okay so I am twelve. I have a 5-hour energy drink with the black label. Is it okay for me to drink? Please answer quickly!

Damn it kid the last thing you should be doing is drinking energy drinks :\

But, I started coffee when I was your age, that is at least safer than those things. You are only supposed to drink them if you desperately need something for a sport anyways.

So...Yeah, lay off of them. Coffee or Tea is the way to go.

Edit: Wait the BLACK label one!? Good luck getting through with your parents.

THE COMPLETELY BLACK LABEL?

You'll be hyper for five freaking hours?
Do you REALLY need it? >.>"

I highly recommend you don't use it. Why people poison themselves with this crap every day instead of just getting enough sleep is beyond me. Figure out how much sleep your body needs to function without getting tired, then get that much each night (hint: it's over 8 hours or you're missing a cycle). For me, it's ten hours (nine minimum). Anything less and I can barely function.

However, I won't deny sometimes there are times when you might need something like that. If you can't sleep before exams due to anxiety or something, it might be necessary. However, you should always try to get enough sleep whenever possible. Your body and mind decay faster if you don't.

Waitwaitwhathca! >:| Coffee does nothing but crap if it's done that low. You need it once every day or other day if you want good results.

But if your mom is the strict kind and she gets mad the withdrawal is more worth it than punishment o.o *guilty*

Ew. Energy drinks are not worth your time or money. Theyre complete poison for you.

I agree with this. Loads of people at my school drink relentless and it makes them quite hyper. Also on the skiing trip, the guy on the seat across the isle from me had 9 bottles of red bull, believe me that will keep you awake.

But in regards to the sleeping, I'm pretty sure you only need 4 hours sleep. 8 hours is just a myth, in fact I heard you live longer if you don't sleep for too long (10 hours plus).

Energy drinks are not good. I try and stick with water and tea each day, energy drinks make you gain weight, rot your teeth and makes you break out in spots :S

Hope this helped! :)

I've never touched an energy drink in my life. Usually if I need to stay up and do something, the anxiety for getting it done on time will keep me awake.
:/ Energy drinks are a no-no.

Yeah dude, don't do it. I'm proud to say I've never drunk an energy drink in my life. You will probably end up getting addicted to caffeine like most other kids these days. It's not good at all.

1. You will be miserable without it (after you get addicted)
2. They're freaking expensive so don't waste your money
3. You won't live too long with caffeine running your body (as mentioned above)

Bzzt. Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong, so wrong I can't say it enough. This advice will quite literally kill you.

Please read. (http://www.sleepfoundation.org/how-much-sleep-do-we-really-need)

Sleep needs do vary, which is why you should take my earlier advice to establish your own schedule. However, there are minimum thresholds of sleep that you should not dip below. Put simply:

(note: image is a copyrighted work of the National Sleep Foundation (http://www.sleepfoundation.org/site-informantion/terms-use))

Getting too little sleep (read: anything BELOW the times listed here; 4 hours is never enough, ever) can have annoying short-term consequences and severe long-term ones. Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_deprivation) has a good list of the effects of sleep deprivation.

Yeah dude. There is such thing as too much sleep too you know. When I get too much sleep, I usually wake up tired and stay tired the whole day. You should just try to follow that chart.

I'm confused. Wtf is "the black label"?? O___o

Also, TEA FTW.

lol have an espresso. hehe
no though, you shouldn't, only if you're going to do something that requires a lot of energy, but sometimes even then it's not safe. D:

As the above said, you don't need energy drinks. Stick with coffee, but I don't see ya needing it quite yet unless you got a pitiful amount of sleep. I drink energy drinks, but only because I like the way some of them taste :S Stick with Kool-Aid like someone else said XP
NOTE: I have one or two within a month at a normal time for me. The things are too dang expensive.

Kool-Aid FTW.

Trust me, one time me and a friend were drinking like four energy drinks a day. For the longest time whenever I drank even a soda I felt like my stomach was going to explode. Energy drinks = no win. Plus, Five Hour Energy? It seems pointless.

No, no, no, no, no. Just no. There's no reason for you to be drinking such stuff at your age, unless you want to blow up with energy or commit suicide. I'm 14, and I don't drink energy drinks. In fact, I've never had a full can/bottle's worth of any type of energy drink in my life. Heck, I hardly even drink soft drinks! Dude, you should never even think about getting energy drinks at this age. They're not designed for youngsters, especially you.

Drink it.

I can deal with a stupid hyper kid for a few hours, but the crash will be so satisfying.

Okay, so it's obvious no one here as ever had a 5-hour energy.

1. It isn't an energy drink. It's in a bottle the size of your thumb. It's a shot, made of out natural herbs.
2. It is intended for adults, but there is nothing harmful to you in it so you can drink it.
3. It has no caffeine. Just don't drink it like..1-7 hours before you sleep. It makes it feel like you don't need sleep instead of hyper and chittery.
4. It doesn't work for everyone, but the majority of people who I know tried it said it works. It works for me. No crash, no hyper-activity. Just makes it so you feel like you got a normal amount of sleep.

Not a substitute for getting a normal amount of sleep. Always try to get as much sleep as you can.

As long as you're sure you won't get addicted easily, then you can drink it. Make sure it's only once in a while unless it could really mess you up.
