    5 hour energy rant

    Is it me or is anyone else sick to death of all the 5 hour energy commercials all ready. If I see that putz on tv claiming how 5 hour energy is better then coffee because it has vitamins and nutrients I'm gonna puke. Last time I checked coffee is something that is real and found in nature I don't recall hearing tales of our ancestors gathering to kick back enenergy shots. Maybe if this country wasn't so fat and lazy from eating healthy foods like rice cakes and foot long subs with less then 6 grams of fat we wouldn't need energy shots. As far as 5 hour energy what vitamins and nutrients does it really have. Fruity Pebbles have vitamins and nutrients so I guess they are healthy. And one final thing , coffee tastes really good. People sit back and enjoy a nice hot cup,of coffee. It is much more enjoyable then a shot of chemical stimulant garbage in a little plastic bottle

    I was a the YMCA when some old dude (sorry old dudes) asks me if I use the stuff, and goes on to tell me how great it is. I'm like naw...I drink a couple cups of coffee a day and thats it. I really didn't wanna wreck his high though so I just left it at that.

    I've never seen those commercials. I don't have a television. I recommend it highly.

    Caffeine can be purchased in bulk from amazon.com.

    I, too, have never seen, or heard, any commercials.

    I don't like coffee, either.

    I've seen the commercials unfortunately and I agree with the rant.
    People are just dumb these days and the trend is toward even more dumbness.

    The 5 hour energy is terrible! Before we went primal, hubby had one to help him stay awake while driving one evening and crashed so hard from it when he got home that he started crying. NEVER AGAIN!

    Those 5 hour energy shots do nothing, less caffeine than a regular cup of coffee with some synthetic b vitamins that are poorly absorbed.

    When I need to pound down shots of caffeine, I just shoot espressos

    Maybe they do nothing b/c your body is more used to those espresso shots? Caffeine is an addictive substance. After a while you have to take in more and more to get the same "hit"/high

    For sure, there is a tolerance threshold for caffeine; I don't get that "high" anymore, there is absolutely no way it could happen for me, after 2 decades of becoming used to copious amounts of caffeine. I would just question whether or not it's addictive, based on the fact I can easily go without it if I needed to. When I wake up, I'm not tired or cranky without it, and have gone a few months without, or with very little caffeine before(just didn't think about it) and experienced no sides, just was less focused.

    Well, I don't experience this at all: I have AT MOST one cup of coffee (high quality) in the early morning and never feel like more than that. Some days I have none. I would not call myself addicted ...
