im thinking this cant be good. you need to find a replacement of something that doesnt rev up your heart so much. maybe 1 a day then something else to drink like flavored water or something or juices you like the taste of. my grandson was doing that till a friend of his collapsed and had to be taken to emergency over to many energy drinks

hello kspezza09... with the rapid popularity growth of the energy drinks, there is almost no escaping them.......... Nowadays you can see them everywhere. In the fuel stations, supermarkets, TV, just everywhere..... it is said that these energy drinks energizes you and give you a short concentration boost....lol... While this may be true, there are also downsides to energy drinks........ if you are concerned with your health..... you’ve probably heard this a million times from your family and your best friend.... - Don’t consume too much sugar and watch out with caffeine

You are ruining your body in long term. Mate, recommended top limit for daily consumption is just two bottles. At least try to stay "in" the limit as your first step. Getting addicted in pretty dangerous for your metabolism, you will need to feed that need forever if you go on like that.. If you are doing it just for the flaour/taste than it's easier for you to get rid of; find a similar taste!
