I only like energy drinks mixed with alcohol. Otherwise they are disgusting. Almost as disgusting as TEA.

Talking tea, eh? (Or energy drinks now, but I'm going by the thread title)

I think I tried tea once. Not sure which. I think green tea. It tasted... clean. Didn't like it. Kinda tasted like what I imagine soap tastes like :\

Don't drink coffee, can't stand smell.

Don't like soft drinks or beer because I can't stand the fizz XD

I'm a boring person who drinks water, milk, and juice.

And alcohol... white or rose wine if out for dinner or at a special event. Caesar is my cocktail of choice.

Never had an energy drink. Don't see the point because I don't ever feel drained and lacking energy.

There, covered all my bases I think

They still have caffeine in them, though. What they help with is alertness. The only "energy" they really give you is in the sugar.

Eh, even sweet tea (which is a specialty in the good 'ol southeastern US where I spent the best years of my life) is too bitter for me. I typically drink fruit juice and soda, with my caffeine coming from the "Mountain Dew" end of the soda category.

Caffeine doesn't really affect me; don't think it every has too much. It doesn't keep me awake or wake me up at all.

Same with me, even when I had caffeine it didn't do much to me anyhow.

However, I would never drink an energy drink cos I know it has traps in it.

I heard somewhere that caffiene helps treats ADHD, not it's not certain. I have ADHD though and I've noticed having alot of caffeine can slow me down and can makes me tired after a while.

I've tried Monster energy before but I didn't like much of it. It was alright.

Caffeine makes me unbelievably hyper. I passed out once, doctor still doesn't know why.

    Wonderful. Sign me up for some good ol' fashioned Heil Satan-ism! If it means a constant supply of the good stuff, that's fine by me. You losers can have your coffee in heaven! :D

    Coffee smells too... If that's what awaits in the positive afterlife send me to hell too. I guess that where tea is not the culture, it's not drank very much. It also takes wise hands to brew a good cuppa!

    I like the smell of coffee, I think it's a nice smell, but that's just my opinion. Ive never had energy drinks, it's just caffeine and sugar that give you a jolt, then later you crash, Im not a big fan of the "crash" part. A cup of coffee or tea or even a small soda is all the caffeine I need.

    I like the smell of coffee, but not the taste, actually. Or the smell of leftover coffee beans mixed with other garbage that seems to permeate my parents' house...

    As for energy drinks, I rarely drink them... usually only when they were given away for free on my college campus, or when I needed to pull all nighters (bad idea, I know xD) for exams.

    I'm having one of those days where I feel like a had an all-nighter even though I got at least 7 hours of sleep. I'm flashing back to all those 2-hour long, 8 AM classes I had to take. Not fun times.

    Well, I was trying to segue into a discussion on school or sleep or something.

    So... how y'all feeling? Get enough sleep last night? Stay up doing homework or something?

    I stayed up till 1 for no reason, it's a bad habit of mine and I really out to get to bed earlier because it tends to make me sleep late, which makes me feel incredibly lazy.

      I got enough sleep last night. The consequence though was that I had no ride to get to school. I start at 11 AM but my mom leaves at 7 AM and that's the only chance I have to catch a ride to school.

      I went to sleep pretty early last night too.

        I always get enough sleep for me not to feel drowsy during the day. I don't like to sleep though, and get up early a lot.

        I average about 7 hours a night, but it's not nearly enough for me. I'd like to go to bed earlier, but I'd end up being up half the night, so it'd be kinda redundant.

        I get around 4-6 hours of sleep typically, though it's at the weirdest time, like from 5-10 in the morning, give or take. It never feels like enough and yet I can never force myself to fall asleep, so it's kinda a vicious cycle.

        I also missed my mid-afternoon nap today, and probably will tomorrow too :/

          I don't know if I'm the only one... but the more I sleep... the tireder I get... D: I can go to bed at 5 a.m. and wake up at 6 a.m. and feel like i got twelve hours sleep. But I can sleep for twelve hours and wake up feeling like I only slept one... it's no bueno.

          I can sleep anywhere from four hours to ten hours and feel the same. My brain is super active so I don't think I ever have that deep of a sleep. So my brain gets very little actual rest but I think my body has gotten used to it.
