I never get caffiene crash or jitters, just a little bit of energy. Only thing excessive caffeine does to me is make me have to piss like every 5 minutes.

Not all energy drinks are created equal.
I put them into 3 categories (by taste):
1) Red bull and red bull tasting drinks
2) Actual original flavours made by the drink company
3) Ones that taste like pure shit and make you sick
I try to avoid 1 and 3 as much as I can, so I only drink AMP, and SoBe Adrenaline Rush.
All i ever hear is that:
"OMG! they R so BAADDD for U!!! OMFG!"
And I just say jokingly, I'm not dead yet
"they taste like shit, I don't know how you stand that stuff" (#3 and sometimes #1)
Obviously they've never had the good drinks that actually taste good
and of course:
"OMFG you'll be so dead / crashed out after that!"
And honestly I don't crash that hard(or at all sometimes), it's obviously dependent on YOU and the type of energy drink AND how you're feeling before you actually drink one.
And yeah they actually work for me, the good tasting ones atleast. I wouldn't go do any physical activity after drinking one though, it might just give you a heart attack
What I use energy drinks for is just to wake me up for class in the morning or in the middle of the day (I only drink one can a day like they tell you on the can)
It is a gamble though, cause sometimes I do crash and am super tired afterwards. But before you argue against energy drinks on that one, think about this.
I'm tired (couldn't sleep, had to wake up early, etc) and have to go to a really important lecture in university and can't fall asleep for it or else I'm fucked. I could:
1) Just go to class and get fucked cause I'll fall asleep
2) Drink some caffeinated drink and wake up for the class so I can pay attention during the class, and possibly crash AFTER the class is over.
There is a benefit if you drink them responsibly.
Dang, did you drink one before/during this post, cause you did some serious typing here

Anyway, I only drink them (only 8oz) in the morning, if I'm really tired, and this is rare. It wakes me up and I don't crash afterwards, as long as I have a good breakfast.
Also, I try to avoid caffeine in general because I don't want to become defendant on it. Mainly I like the taste of energy drinks, I wish they made them without caffeine.

I get really tired of people ragging on energy drinks. They're full of misconceptions.
1. People build up tolerances to caffeine.
2. They will not give you a heart attack. Unless you have a pre-existing heart condition and you love sucking down gallons of coffee, you will be fine
3. caffeine is a diuretic, which causes the kidneys to produce excess urine. HOWEVER, it does NOT act as a diuretic while the person exercises.
4. Caffeine is proven to increase muscular endurance, cognition, and mental capability. ex. tired people drive more accurately, cyclists go farther, more reps with a bell bar.
5. No energy drinks contain enough vitamins to kill you. Some can cause side effects in super high doses, but the most common ones in these drinks (B vitamins) are not considered dangerous at all. Either way, most of these are excreted in urine right away.
6. Many doctors say the ONLY real substance that has any impact on the "buzz" of energy drinks is caffeine. Sugar adds calories, which is the only substance that would give you true energy. The extra stuff, like taurine, do not. Also, when they do add a substance that has been proven to have effects, they often add so little it has zero effect ("angel dusting") (some
7. Sugar could be considered "bad" for you, because of how much is added. Most healthy adults handle sugar without problems.
This should all be true. There's always doctors refuting studies.
I enjoy energy drinks for the taste more so than performance. I do not usually feel a buzz or a crash, so I don't know what a crash would feel like. Relating to paintball and performance , energy drinks statistically should be beneficial to your game. So, go on and try one without worrying how to use a defibrillator.

Do not drink these while you are playing during the day! I don't mean in game, but when you are done or dead, don't drink these things. They will make you crash later and it is not good for your system. I have seen people get sick off of these things.
Do not drink energy drinks they are bad for you and your wallet

what about five hour energy. Ive never had it but do they really give you five hours of energy? since they have no sugar i think that they are telling the truth
Based on what they have in them, and not on the person taking it. They do work, and they are healthy for you.

hay if anyone is haveing trouble quitting energy drinks, take this into consideration. The main ingredient in them is bull sperm (tourine)
personally, idc. I drink rockstars to support dynasty.
and then ne time i saw a member of dynasty at my field drinking a rockstar. It was the green kind. i hate those
Myth the taurine in energy drinks are created synthetically
awwww, i was having fun with that.

Now I've been diagnosed with a heart condition and I can't have any caffeine, ever. It could kill me. It's likely that the caffeine in the energy drinks made it worse even if they didn't cause it. Of course if you have a mild heart condition the doctors may not be picking it up, so many people could be screwing their hearts over without realizing it.
Caffeine (and Taurine and Guarana which are basically just repackaged caffeine) forces your body and your heart to do more work than they are designed to. They don't actually give you any energy, they just make you think you have more energy. And that really isn't good if you're having a lot.
My advice: Sports drinks like powerade are way better. They actually give you real energy instead of just fake crap, and don't dehydrate you or get you addicted.

'They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give themselves to me.
yeeeeeah in the long run the also increas your risk or heart attack
Like clay I shall mould them and in the furnace of war I shall forge them.
They will be of iron will and steely muscle.
In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest gun shall they be armed.
They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them.
They will have tactics, strategies and machines such that no foe will best them in battle.
They are my bulwark against the terror.
They are the defenders of Humanity.
They are my Space Marines...
...and they shall know no fear.
So drink up, lads and look brave.
For another day nearer the battle
Is another day nearer the grave.'
