    I drink 1-2 of these per week, sugarfree. Are they bad for you? They've been around for years now and I haven't heard anything other than the usual sugar, caffeine, aspartime type arguments that are not unique to energy drinks.

    I have noticed far more energy after I quit drinking caffeinated beverages. No crash and that is what takes me out. I am on day 21 of quitting pop and I seem to feel much better because of it.

    Not going to lie, I drink 2-3 Monsters a day. No real problems, other than a bit of a caffeine addiction and an empty wallet. Been doing this for nearly 3 years now.

    The biggest argument soda pop or energy drinks is always the sugar. So if you drink sugarfree what's the next biggest health argument?

    I'm leary of stuff like Redline, but Red Bull and Rock Star type drinks seem pretty tame. Are they hard on the liver or anything like that? I know Rock Star turn my urine bright yellow, but so does multivitamins.

    I think they put in poison instead of sugar in the sugar free versions right? :supergrin:

    mmmm... Sugar Free Rock Star (white can) is my "go to" drink when I want something like that. Maybe once a week?

    My wife is addicted to them, the Sugar-Freee Rockstar, I have to get 2 cases at Costco once a month, and she will go through them. Every once in awhile I will drink one, the days I go into work eary like at 6 am. Things like that

    I am a fan of Moster Energy Drinks. Recently started drinking the low carb ones but I actually prefer the regular green cans. Maybe drink 3-4 every 2 weeks but I do enjoy them.

    Any kind of soda or energy drink are extremely acidic. If you drink them constantly the acid from them can eventually eat away the lining of stomach and cause ulcers (happened to my grandfather). Other than that all I can think of is caffeine addiction, eats away the enamel of your teeth, and can make you fat I really don't think there is much else wrong with them.

    Oh and I tend to drink soda a lot more than a should, use to be 1 or 2 a day, been good though and tryin to stop drinkin the stuff, now I have 1 or 2 a month and I really do feel healthier by drinking mostly water.
