    There’s been many of times that I have to stop drinking coffee. I try to cut myself off at the 5 hour mark. I almost always make my own coffee. I take it black, but I can still get the jitters. I try to stop so that I can get a decent nights sleep.

    I am older, and do not drink sodas very often. I may have a ginger ale once in a while, but when I was younger I drank a lot of Diet Coke. I still knew that water was essential and drank a lot.

    No but one time I had to pull over and almost call an ambulance cause my chest hurt real bad.
    Working for a mega sucks, looking back I’d never do the stuff I was doing or put up with half of their crap.

    Much as you may not want to admit it, if your body has a hard time doing things WITHOUT the energy drinks, its not exactly like you are doing yourself any favors doing those same things on an energy drink or 2 or 3.

    Moto is an extreme case of how not to do things, but dont kid yourself into thinking at hour 14 you are as fresh on can 2 of your beverage as you might have been on hr 3 without it.

    I remember when taking the tqa they said some about not having them on the trailer for more then 28 hours without unloading them and letting Them rest and eat for a couple hours can't remember if the bqa said anything about that I always thought that was a rule for both pigs and cow?
    I only haulers catte once recently and enjoy it I was more nervous with them then I had been driving in long time I was scared I was gonna knock them all down somehow

    I especially love it when one shows up empty at a truck stop for the night BEFORE they've power washed out the trailer.
