    i got college at 9.. and i really cant sleep for some reason. im a bit tired right now, but i'll be REALLY tired in say, 5 hours time.

    will a 1 litre bottle of energy drink, such as boost, prevent this extreme tiredness?

    thanks

    From vast experience: no. An energy drink will give you physical energy, but you'll still be really tired, you just won't be able to keep still. Caffeine is similar.

    Go lie down in the dark till it's time to get up. That's about as close to sleep as you'll get, and you'll feel better for it than if you don't.

    the key to energy drinks is to take small sips of them over an extended period of time - that way you're being kept awake through the night/day. If you drink a can, let alone 4 one after another, it's just gonna give you an enormous boost within 30-60 mins, that will end up in a horrible crashdown some 3-4 hours later. You don't wanna do this. Energy drinks take resources from your body - if you guzzle down a can, it takes as much as it can at once, whereas if you just extend a can/bottle over several hours, it will take small bits of your energy, one after another, and you'll be able to refill it in the meantime (e.g. by eating something or drinking Lucozade)

    Just keep on taking a couple of sips every 10-15 minutes or so, and you'll be fine

    Dno, energy drinks so ******* to me so it depends on you, I can stay up without it and tbh I'd find all that pissing of the energy drinks annoying, just do an activity that wakes you up?

    Dont even think about it. You are going to feel absolutely ****, crazy heart palpitations, trembling, restlessness, maybe even a headache and diarrhea and you will still feel worn out, you will just not be able to fall asleep so you will be insomniac which isnt the same as not being tired. 1 litre of energy drink will not make you any less tried than a can of Monster, it will just make you feel completely horrible. You're better off just skipping class or falling asleep on your desk.
