    Energy Shots

    I know many people on here like the energy drinks, which I myself enjoy (Red Bull, Monster, and Full Throttle)

    But how many people use the energy shots? I usually get one on my first day off since I stay up all day to get onto my families normal life cycle.

    I like teh 5-hour energy and I just tried one by Stacker2 called Xtra

    The Stacker 2 has better taste but I think they work equally well
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    I'm not real big on the energy drinks, but occasionally I'll use "Kickers" spray. It doesn't taste too bad and works faster than the drinks.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I don't use them, but one of the guys here just started using one called Coffee Shot or something similar. He loved it, said it was stronger than some of the other's he'd tried.

    I tried them the first time at SHOT show with Hannibal.

    The guy who was handing them out saw me an hour later and pointed out I was walking faster and talking 100 miles an hour - I hadn't even realized it.

    I love the ANSI xTreme Shock. I like the grape flavor best. They have zero sugar in them. I'm not a coffee drinker so my boost comes from Coca Cola which is just empty carbs. The xTreme Shock has the caffeine of two coffees and all the other natural stuff.

    When you start drinking it your lips begin tingling. Then your ears and head begin itching. After about half an hour the tingling goes away and you just go and go and go. It's great before working out because it acts so fast. All the guys on my unit are big fans and we usually start our shifts off with one.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    I haven't ever drank any, and don't plan on drinking them. I even save coffee/soda for those nights that are real long and hard (homicide scenes, etc) That way they still have an effect. If I have a cup of coffee I'm ready to go for hours.

    I like Monster Mixxd (grape flavor) and the Java Monster energy drinks. I can't drink it near the end of my shift though, it'll keep me up for hours.

    I enjoy the black 5 hour shot followed by a full throttle chaser. in the hood there is a light purple can called drank the anti energy drink. my partner tried it and while I was working on a report he went out. thinking this was funny I gave it to a rookie on one of has final eval days and he was doing the bobble head. that some funny stuff. the can has a slogan of slow your roll. i'm thinking that if they got any slower they be going backwards, guess its a good thing obama won so they can be better taken care of.

    I'm scared to drink any of them, even though I'm a 2-3 cup of coffee drinker. I stopped at the Red Bull booth at a food show once had a Red Bull and Absolut for breakfast, and for a couple of hours my coworker and I were walking and talking faster than we ever had.

    I'm on a 3 five hour energy shot a day habit. I gotta try to stop but I like not bonking halfway through the day. I'm gonna have to find some of the Drank Anti-energy Drink stuff, maybe I can sleep better at night too!

    Better living through chemical dependancy.

    I've found the shots a little too strong. I like Zip Fizz. Powder in a tube that you add to water.

    Back when energy drinks were first hitting the market, there was one called Rush. I'd hit 2 of them and be good all day. Now I drink either NOS or Rockstar Juiced, but they don't work near as well as what the Rush did.

    I don't generally do 'energy drinks.'

    I will drink coffee by the gallon until about noon. Then I'll drink Diet Mt. Dew by the gallon. (Okay, a cup an hour until noon, then a liter or so until 5). A coworker literally drinks black coffee all fuckin day long. I've stumbled back to the hotel at 2 a.m. and saw him grab a cup of coffee on the way back to his room...very weird!

    With all that...the couple times I've tried an espresso shot or whatever that shit they sell for a buck an ounce is called....I got a little buzz and high on life for about 30 mins.
