Who /whitemonster/ here?
>tfw addicted and probably gonna die due to overconsumption
How do you folks get your caffeine?
A...are you fuking retarded.
Get a preworkout or a black coffee.
I take caffeine pills. I like Monster but they're just way too fucking expensive to drink regularly, I used to drink like 2/day and it adds up fast. PWO doesn't make a large enough to justify how expensive it is compared to caffeine pills.
I'm /addictedtogreekyogurt/ here. It's killing my wallet but brehs... I can't stop..
If you're getting palpitations and shortness of breath from caffeine then you probably have a serious underlying medical condition.
Especially considering 1 a day = ~ 150 - 200mg of caffeine.
>make a thread bragging about how you get your intake of a substance that rules your life
So if I drank 8 of these yesterday on top of 2 cups of coffee, I basically just drank 10 cups of coffee? What stuff in Monster get your heart jump out of your chest? I feel fucking amazing when I drink these.
>drink 9 cups of coffee a day
>leaving for basic training in three months
That's enough time to kick the habit, right?? I should have just gone and not given college the chance, I was never this bad in school.
I used to order 10g bags of caffiene powder. Would take 100mgs in my OJ in the mornings instead of coffee. I felt like Coffee would wake me up more but maybe cos it was hot? idk.
They gave this guy cancer & killed him
Coffee contains several other Xanthine type chemicals and other chemicals similar to caffeine that have a slightly different psychoactive effect and are much milder in their effects on the body but still do give coffee a bit of a different feel to it than pure caffeine.
It is like thinking you get the same high from hash as weed. It is mostly true, but you are missing out on dozens of minor chemicals that tweak the experience just a little bit.
>Kek pre-workout is just an energy drink in powder form
I am a white monster. I only drink tea from plants grown in the austrian mountains
Energy drinks are amazing, it fuckibg sucks how terrible they are health wise. The taste and feeling they leave is so satisfying.
Red Bull is the best though. Monster is far too sweet. I like that saltiness Red Bull has.
I drink these and/or lowcal Rockstars and/or lowcal Red Bulls as preworkout. Regular PWO's pretty much all have arginine which gives me cold sores. I workout after work and work is physical so something is pretty much required.
Will I die?
100 mg caffeine anhyrdous >/= 200 mg caffeine, at least IMO. Solid investment.
I've got caffeine mints because they're a lower dose of caffeine.
I used to depend on the cherry lime rockstar for my old retail job. It was the only way I could get through the day dealing with morons.
Every few months or so if I'm having an extra shit day I'll pick one up.
I fuckin love that drink but had to quit.
When I drink it long enough I feel shitty and sluggish, my body adapts to it so I drank more (along with coffee). I was feeling bloated. Beetus runs in family. Etc.
Tastes great, not great for me
>don't drink that shit
>I've been guilty of it, too
Essentially cancer in a can. It's even right there on the label. The so-called 'M' is made up of 3 ancient symbols. They are occult and very negative in meaning and implication.
Same goes for all other energy drink scams along these lines.
Had to quit caffeine. It shoudnt be used regularly, it should be consumed only when you need it. That way instead of having your normal level on caffeine, when you drink it it actually makes a difference.
Realized i was addicted to free office coffee when I felt lethargic af waking up. 4 days off it and now i wake up without alarm.
>Buy a 10 pack of monster
>Still costs $1.50 per can
Shaking my head, family.
I'm addicted to this stuff too. However, a few years ago I was one monster every day (100%). Now I'm about 70% black coffee and 30% monsters.
I used to be just like you op. One monster ultra every day and couldn't quit, was literally addicted.
Until one day I stopped being a pussy and quit everything overnight, weed, alcohol, energy drinks, etc. Literally life changing, and I hate myself for not doing it sooner.
Back when I lived on my college residence, we could buy monster with our meal plan. I downed one in the morning and one before the gym. And, mixed monster with tequila on party nights.
Moved back home, and it's the most expensive canned beverage full stop. Stopped cold turkey because of how fucking expensive it is. Now I just have a coffee in the morning.
Do you even ingredients bro?
You gonna compare that to an energy drink?
The caffeine and the b12 is the same.
Taurine and beta alanine compete and shouldn't be mixed. Taurine in Monster, beta alanine in pwo.
...So not really that different. The 'umph' comes from the same ingredients. Pwo has more muscle recuperation stuff, i'll admit, but Monster is tastier and the umph is what really matters before a workout anyway.
Black coffee is great and all, but I heard putting at least a tiny bit of cream in it helps stop the chemical that stains teeth.
But "no" means "yes" right?
If you're buying greek yogurt that isnt 50% off i got bad news breh
And even then the shit is too fuckin expensive. And eating 4 greek yogurts is about as satiating as taking a vitamin D
Rockstar Lemonade and Orange flavored. 5 calories for the Orange, 10 for the lemonade. 160mg of caffeine per can. Can get them 2 for $3 at my local gas station. I started drinking these instead of PWO because PWO kills my appetite, makes me nauseous, and gives me diarrhea.
I was drinking a few a day for about three weeks then stopped. I know that shit gives you kidney stones and probably a litany of other problems
I'm going to switch to caffeine pills after I finish my current jug of PWO, it always makes me nauseous.
Is there less of a noticeable energy boost compared to PWO? I know caffeine is the main thing but do the other chemicals play a big role in getting you hyped up?
Nigga, I'm fucking writin' this from Keesler.
I was 321st, Disneyland. I got coffee EVERY DAY. I once made an MTI wait in line while I got mine. He was pissed but couldn't stop me.
Just in case you are an E-6 or above, allow me to personally and anonymously say, "fuck you, faggot".
FLAY, FIGHT, WIN!
Yeah. Sounds like a typical energy drink.
>being this fucking retarded
