My wife used to work in a rehab facility.  Apparently a lot of recovering addicts use energy drinks as a crutch/replacement for cocaine and meth.  They are so used to being wired on some kind of stimulant that they use lots of Red Bull and Monster because they are trying to quit other stimulants.

And it was coffee before energy drinks came around. Nothing new.

The correct term is "gateway beverage" and it's no joking matter... unless, of course, it is the punchline for a joke...

That would assume that cocaine was as easy to get as a redbull.

Subby, white horse, or horse in general, is slang for heroin, not cocaine.

As Mr Peterman said:  "He's back on the Horse Elaine, Smack, White Lotus, yam yam, the chinaman's night cap."

Drinking a pint of Red Bull while drunk at 1AM was an intense, euphoric experience. No blackout, but I don't remember sending texts to my friends at 3AM, either.

They are born susceptible to addiction. They seek out stimulation prior to even using energy drinks or coke.  The drugs are not the problem , they are self medicating . Kinda like adhd . It could be skydiving or other risky activities but they are seeking out these activities due to brain function a combo of genetic or environmental factors.

No.  It's heroin.  It's not cocaine.

They're vastly different drugs, nobody is going to expect to get cocaine if they're asking for heroin.

I always liked "Peruvian Marching Powder" as slang for cocaine myself.

This is just ex recto speculation, but I've long wondered how many people who abuse stimulants are trying to self-medicate for undiagnosed mild-to-moderate ADD.  I've noticed, for instance, that many of my colleagues in high tech have the ability to hyperfocus that's characteristic of ADD, tend to ignore things that aren't of interest to them or aren't relevant to whatever they're hyperfocusing on, and use/abuse of energy drinks, coffee, and caffeinated sodas is rampant.
 
2017-08-14 12:49:17 PM  
Big names among energy drinks include Red Bull, Monster, Amp and Rockstar.

But coffee is just fine.

Peruvian marching powder may not be far off. I remember some pre-new world South American societies used to give messengers a handful of coca leave to chew like tobacco. And they would run, and run, and run...
