Large consumption of energy drinks while burning up the dance floor is not a good idea as the combination of fluid loss from sweating and effects of caffeine can leave you severely dehydrated resulting in having a greater thirst, buying more drink, blowing more money, becoming more drunk and having a worse hangover.

m150Basically, know what you’re drinking. Energy drinks are not bad for you, but they shouldn’t be seen as an obligatory must when out on the town either. If you think of them as extreme shots of caffeine, you’ll have a more accurate picture of what they are and how they affect you. In the Kingdom you’ll also notice energy drinks are popularly used as mixers with alcohol, especially among drinkers of local Thai whiskey. This combination can carry a number of unwelcome outcomes. Since energy drinks are stimulants and alcohol is a depressant, the stimulant energy drink can mask exactly how wasted you are and prevent you from realizing how much alcohol you have thrown down your neck; but don’t worry, there is no escape as reality will bite the next day when you check your wallet.

Fatigue is the way our body tells us that we’ve had enough to drink. As energy drinks stop us feeling tired, we never know when we’ve had enough which can turn the best night out into a guest star appearance at the local cop station. Once the stimulant effect of the energy drink wears off, the depressant effects of the alcohol will remain and can cause vomiting, depression, paranoia and insomnia.

Carabao Thai Enery DrinkSo remember a mix of energy drink and alcohol is very dehydrating. It can hinder your body’s ability to metabolize alcohol and will increase the toxicity of whatever you’ve drunk giving you one hell of a hangover the next day…cheers!
