    My kids are only 9 and 7 but I vowed to never let 'em near energy drinks. I know that battle is going to get a lot tougher when they get older.

    I also feel obligated to post this pic

    I've only had this kind of stuff once, and hated it. I don't know why people haven't been taking a closer look at the dangers in this shit.

    Who says they don't? With all the people out there who know the risks of alcohol, tobacco, and junk food yet still drink, smoke, and eat shit junk food until becoming a fat fuck diabetic with no legs, liver cirrhosis, and 1/2 a lung, it's probably a safe assumption that energy drinks aren't any different.

    I have a friend who drinks nothing but Mountain Dew and energy drinks. I switched to diet about a decade ago (immediately dropped 15 pounds with no other change). It took about two weeks to get used to it, and now I can't have sugary drinks period because it makes my mouth shrivel over how sugary they are.

    Anyway, my friend keeps having major tooth issues. He was unemployed with no insurance, but when I'd say, "Hey, I think it's what you drink, dude," he'd rebuff me. Now, until he can save up enough to pay a dentist in cash, he keeps going from tooth to tooth orajeling the hell out of it. I just don't get the obvious denial some people are in. He is also quite overweight, so the extreme amounts of caffeine can't do his blood pressure well--though he is about 6'5", so his bodymass can handle larger amounts.

    Anyway, I really don't like the job this reporter did on this story. First, the heart issue is kind of a red flag, and there doesn't seem to be any attempt to investigate what her condition combined with the intoxication meant. It's mentioned, it's said her doctor didn't think, at the time it was diagnosed, that it would cause a health problem. But that's it--it's neither ruled out nor connected.

    Also, the statistics are misleading. While the increase in caffeine intoxication is a concern, it's used in a story about a caffeine death. These are two different things, and death by this is extremely rare.

    Lastly, research has shown that caffeine intoxication occurs at much higher levels, about 150-200 milligrams for every 2.2 pounds of body mass. In 2010, when a British man died of caffeine intoxication, he consumed 3200 milligrams of caffeine.

    I'm not saying that these drinks shouldn't be monitored by parents, but I think this story is misleading.

    But, I could be wrong.

    I dont let my kids drink them but my daughter had a friend who would bring her one at school. I know they have had them before but I don't drink them and have made my feelings known on this subject several times.

    If I catch them drinking them they will be in big trouble, however I can't control what they do when they are away from me.

    All I can do is keep talking to them about it and telling them of the dangers. Hopefully it will sink in.

    There is a guy that I work with who would daily take 4 stacker 3 pills and drink 2 big monster energy drinks and chase it with mt. dew. ALL BEFORE LUNCH! We all figured his heart would explode one day, but he is still kickin. I don't see him as we work different shifts, but I see a loaded NOS can on his desk waiting.

    Two cups of coffee a day in the morning is my tax season.

    Tax season I sometimes have to take something in the afternoon, and if working into the wee hours of the morning something at night. I know it isn't good for me, but it is the profession I chose. The rest of the year I am almost caffeine free, but during tax season, I just have to do it.

    I just don't know how people do it like that all the time all year round. My stomach is a mess from all that caffeine in just two months time.

    I soooo want one of these science shows on TV to do a comparison of one of these energy drinks and cocaine. That would be fun to watch.

    So I take it you are imbibing now. What do you take in the afternoon? NoDose? I hate that stuff. I drink and love coffee, but once in school I started taking that NoDose with the coffee for all-nighters (was working full time too) and ODed a bit on the caffeine. N A S T Y feeling. Broke out in a cold sweat, felt nausea, and had a little bit of hallucination (like flashing lights in the corner of the eyes). Threw that shit out and never took NoDose or too much coffee ever since.

    I use 1-2 200 mg caffeine pills every day that I work, along with steady amounts of Pepsi Max and Diet Mountain Dew. Unfortunately, I only get about 5 hours of sleep so it eliminates that drowsy feeling.

    I find I do better with generic caffeine rather than Vivarin or No Doz. Seems like with those brand products I'd get upset stomach more often.

    I once drank one of those 5 ounce energy drink after not sleeping at all the night before,had a lot of work to do,felt like crap so I downed that thing and BOOM!

    Felt like I had snorted a line of meth,that was a horrible day,my heart felt like it was going to jump out of my chest,never again.

    My kid(26) drinks a Monster every day,at least 1,and at the price I cannot understand this,that shit costs almost as much as a whole can of coffee,you could buy a whole can of coffee grounds at the supermarket for what they want for 3 of those Monsters,makes no sense to me.
