    I'm fond of 200mg generic No-Doze as a wake up dose. The only active ingredient is caffeine. I pop a pill without ever needing to leave my bed to brew a hot drink. During lunch, I may or may not have a tea to go with my meal, but I don't consume caffeine after lunch time.

    I used to drink 3-4 energy drinks a day, but I found they made me irritable, and the monetary cost was ultimately unsustainable. Probably the inevitable health costs, as well.

      I just voted for "coffee" and it seems to be the *only* vote in the system at that time, but then again, you could not have commented unless you voted. Ann, IIRC slashcode has a timer system. Displayed counts may only update every 5 or 10 minutes.

      FWIW, I had my first cup of coffee at the the end of my 1st semester in college. The Student Union hosted a study session and provided fresh coffee and donuts every hour. It took some period of adaptation, but I've been a coffee guy ever since.

      Before that, college studying was assisted by 2-Liter bottles of Coca-Cola. One was just the right size for pulling a late-nighter or an all-nighter.

      In high school, it was just: eating a balanced diet, plenty of exercise, and going to bed when I was tired. (I tended to study early in the AM before anyone else was awake.)

        Caffeine has given me tunnel vision and migraines since I was a teenager, so hot chocolate was my coffee substitute. Last year, after Covid and a few months of 70-80 hour work weeks mainlining my hot chocolate, I can't have sugar anymore. I am now without a suitable liquid stimulant.

    Starbucks is bloody terrible.

    I've been to Seattle where it all started and there are plenty of decent independent coffee places that serve a nice espresso.

    I drink half a case of diet Dr Pepper a day at my day job. It is very common to hear me crunching the cans in my office. I need my aspartame. I need it.

    I've often joked that if aspartame was even remotely as bad for you as some people think it is, I'd be fucking dead. ^^

    I regularly put zinc pills into my coffee lately. And much less honey than I did in epoch of the last SN coffee poll...

    I drink one or two 16 ounce bottles of regular Dr. Pepper a month. Otherwise, just water. Chemicals aren't good for you. I wish I could get it without caffeine, but ever since the pandemic, your choice is caffeine or aspartame, you have to take one or the other.

      Chemicals aren't good for you.

      An extremely broad and incorrect statement, considering water is a chemical.

      Even if you mean drugs, or synthetic drugs, it's not necessarily true.

      Caffeine can have beneficial long-term effects and is generally recognized as safe.

    I'm gonna date myself, and admit to having an addiction to Bawls brand Guaraná. Picked it up when it was a web coding fad back in the day. Not sure where that falls on the soda/energy drink spectrum, I chose energy drink in the poll. It's got enough caffeine and sugar to be an energy drink, anyhow :P

    Amazon keeps me hooked up; I love the glass bottles, but the aluminum cans cost the same and have 16oz instead of 10. When I'm feeling poor, amazon delivers Antarctica brand guaraná soda too.
