Caffeine Crazy Americans ::

Reported by Olly @ Trackitdown on February 5, 2007

Americans who don’t enjoy the taste of energy drinks Cocaine and Meth Coffee will soon be able to enjoy caffeinated donuts and bagels, according to a report in Business Week magazine this week which revealed that the market for energy drinks grew by 60% in the last year.

"Not everyone likes coffee," Buzz Donuts and Buzzed Bagels spokesman Graham Wilson told the journal, “These products are an alternative if you like your morning pastry and want a boost without having to drink coffee."

Business Week reported that commuters and clubbers are most likely to seek out the new products, to cope with sleep deprivation and excessive work demands, both ironically factors cited by US superstar DJ Junior Vasquez this week in his 6 year journey through crystal meth addiction.

Chatting to DJ Magazine this week, the iconic New Yorker described how friends would surreptitiously sprinkle meth into his coffee to help him stay awake during his marathon sets at Palladium before he started taking the drug himself, when he moved to Twilo.

“It’s a disgusting drug. I did it to stay up. Meth helps you focus. I was DJing 15 hour sets so I had to stay awake and focus,” Vasquez said.

“It was the after effects it had on me that were awful. The sleep deprivation. I got paranoid. I got tweaked,” he added. (crystal advice) (The effects of Cocaine in a can: ‘the drug (caffeine) peaks one hour after consumption, and its effects last between four and six hours. College students who often pull long, marathon study sessions, and cram work into "all-nighters," are susceptible to becoming dependent upon the drug. Those who become addicted experience headaches, irritability, fatigue, and even nausea or vomiting during withdrawal . . .’)
