I drink it once a year when I go to an international dance conference. I take dance workshops all day and then dance every night from 11PM-4AM for three days...mostly with people who are 20 years younger than I am. :)
If you are lacking energy on an everyday basis, more exercise might be the answer. I only feel like I am dragging when I have missed a workout.

I am not a huge fan of Red Bull, but I will drink other energy drinks on occasion. They are not something I consume regularly, but every once in a while I don't see it as an issue.

Not a fan of the taste (or even the smell) so luckily I have never really been tempted to drink them. I do drink coffee and chai, but mostly for the taste and not the caffeine. I've found a quick burst of exercise (even if it's just sneaking off the floor at work for a minute of two of something like jumping jacks) actually gives me way more energy than anything else.
What you really need to do, is figure out why you have no energy. We have become accepting of the need to drink caffeine, or some other stimulant to wake us up, and I am always amazed at people in their teens drinking energy drinks. They should have too much energy. They are kids.
Since eating healthier, I find my energy is much higher. Most of our diets were deficient in nutrients, and if we start to consume them from real food, we don't need stimulants for energy.

My son almost lost a friend who had too many redbulls. he was drinking a several through out a hot day and went into cardiac arrest. He stayed with him until the ambulance came.
That is why I'm not supportive of them, young kids make poor decisions. I'd like 18 to be the minimum age to purchase them. Just a small deterrent.

I drink it sometimes but if I have the option I drink the starbucks drinks that you can get at the gas station. They come in a glass bottle. I feel less guilty consuming it. I do enjoy red bull because they come in a smaller can and I find I get enough energy out of them.
Looks like I'm in the minority here, but I have a Red Bull or Monster once in a while (every couple of months). It's probably a bad idea to have one every day, but otherwise I would say it's fine!

I feel that when you eat a good diet, you have no need for Red Bull and the like. PLUS, I would rather spend that money on other things!

I've never had one in my life. My SIL drinks 4 per day. She also smokes and drinks a 6 pack of beer per day, so she's hardly the picture of health and good nutrition.

You'll never regret the workout you do, only the one you don't.

Never. I prefer to remain as healthy as possible. Red Bull is deadly. (As are other 'energy' drinks)
