hey Luc, im 28 and would you believe i have NEVER even tried red bull? my friends drink it constantly, as do my students, but ive steered well clear of it. im just far too sensitive to natural stimulants- or all stimulants for that matter.
take care my friend,
im proud of you! thats so refreshing to hear. and you're right about the addictive personality- best just to avoid it. i was never much of a huge drinker, but i havent touched alcohol since i was 21. not a drop. its just not worth it, especially if you are on meds, and its a depressant, alcohol makes you feel worse in the long run. you sound like you totally know what you are doing. i only drank out of peer pressure, and also to impress my much older boyfriend (back when i was 17). i dont even like the stuff. i have had addictions to other things, but im doing better now.
Take care, stay strong, Maz XX

Caffienne = stimulation to the central nervous system..who wants that??!!
I gave up coffee and all stimulants about 10? months ago and although I miss my morning coffee I am so much better for it. Every so often my brain takes leave of absence and I get a coffee after a bout of insomnia..and I suffer all day from shaking, jitters and very high anxiety...
I would reccomend anyone with A/P give it the big heave ho. De-caf ain't that bad..honest!
,,,,,,,Do not have an allergy hun but sure have a rush from the coffee

If I even try to drink cola I might as well punch myself in the stomach.. pre-empt the agony. I have a wise friend who told me if you can't pronounce it..don't digest it. Stay natural!! Now my friends who can have caffienne..Kitt's right..moderation. Enjoy with a smile
Fitzy, i am highly allergic to pseudoephedrine. but thanks for the heads up! its a nasty feeling, thats for sure.
I cave...I have chocolate...!!! I take it with enough joy to counteract the anxiety....
