Energy Drinks and Alcohol

11 Nov

It appears that some people are engaging in what is now confirmed as the dangerous practice of mixing alcohol with energy drinks which is like mixing an upper and a downer. Alcohol makes one drowsy while energy drinks which has about three times the amount of caffeine as a strong cup of coffee makes one alert. The danger is when a person is that perky they may drink even more and even more disconcerting they may feel good enough to drive a car.

A young woman recently died of such a mixture. The blood alcohol level in her was sky high –¬†way way above the normal average.
