Why do many straight edge/drug free people drink mass amounts of energy drinks?

Recommended Posts

I noticed it first with some of my friends who are now in in AA/NA and I also noticed many straight edge younger folks who drink tons of that stuff. What is the scoop? Those drinks are not healthy and they can be "habit forming" also so....

 

Just curious.

 

Yeah, I know CSS!:thu:

Because they're hypocrites. Apparently legal mind-altering substances are just fine as long as we're not talking alcohol. If someone does not want to partake in drugs/alcohol, that's fine, but man those straight-edgers are preachy (and VIOLENT!)

You got to have some sort of addiction I suppose.

 

Ultimately the problem is folks who look down on you if you drink (normally, problem drinkers are a whole another bag of :snax:) or start preaching to you about it.

This.....I think it is cool and all to be straight edge but what the fuck is with the violence. So its either a) I do drugs and am semi-normal or b) I am straight-edge, I am going to make sure everyone around me knows it, and if me and my buddies see you getting fucked up we are going to try and fight you. Why is option "b" so cool to some kids these days?

Addicts have to fill their prior addiction with a new addiction. Whether that be sex, shopping, energy drinks, or what not. There always has to be some sort of addiction. Always.

+1000 I am a recovering alcoholic and former smoker. I ingest caffiene like crazy. It has definetely taken the place of the the alcohol and nicotine. That and food. Some people also fill their addiction needs with more positive things. But I firmly believe I will always be "addicted" to something. It is just the personality I have.

If you have an addictive personality, it is regardless of the legality of the substance. Addictions that become a problematic dependance are usually a symptom of a much bigger problem, which in turn increases the gravity of the original problem - ironically. It is common to see addicts also have some sort of disorder or other underlying issues.

 

Energy dinks are much cleaner to begind with, since they do not induce the same effects as illegal narcotics. In fact, their effects are very mild and are usually jitters ending with a crash. That is hardly a life-destroying effect when compared to other narcotics.

For me it's not energy drinks (I don't like the taste of RedBull at all), but COFFEE is my drug !:love:

 

but I don't belong into the group of younger folks, I'm old:cry:
