I just bought 8 red bulls and I intend to continue drinking a glass or 2 of soda w/dinner and drinking a red bull before work every night. So far I have felt great. What sort of tolerance am I going to develop? Is 2 glasses of soda and 1 red bull/day a moderate enough intake that I can continue cashing in on this gravy train long term?
I used to drink energy drinks fairly regularly, and was astounded by the tolerance I developed to the caffeine. I've never drank more than one in a day before, but they started losing their 'buzz' of the caffeine high and I was usually fairly relaxed while drinking them and could sleep quite easily within a few hours of drinking them. I stopped for a few years, and now they have a pretty significant effect on me again. So, the effect will probably be short term for you, but if you quit for a bit I'm sure you'll lose the tolerance again.
