Y'all are kinda being hypocrites. You're all "oh, you're poisoning your body with energy drinks" but nobody here is a purist when it comes to what they consume. You'll drink beer, eat beef, some of you smoke.
All things in moderation.
"Slow down...take it easy..." - you don't get ahead in business that way. Quicker, faster, more efficient, THAT'S what gets rewarded.
I'll admit it -- I'll drink an occasional energy beverage. I work second shift and sometimes it's hard to make it that last hour, hour and a half. I might even be a little hypothyroid for all I know, but the bottom line is that last hour and a half has to get worked and a glass of MiO energy gets me to the end of the shift, alert and on the ball.
