I work the night shift at a local (skaneateles) grocery store 10-6:30. The amount of hours and the pay isn't bad, but when I work the normal shift (once every three days) I can't sleep more than 4 hours the next day. I have to work 10-2 tonight (not worried) How do you keep yourself up when you need to be up?

I'm the Full Time Overnight Front End Coordinator/Cashier at Wegmans. I work 11:00pm-7:30am. I guess the way I stay awake is drink a lot of diet Pepsi, now I have gone more towards Diet Snapple. I also don't go to sleep when I get home. I keep myself awake until about 1 or 2pm and then sleep the evening, until 9pm or 10pm. Then I'm not that tired at work.

No, that's a myth. Diet pop doesn't have any sugar in it. But it definitely has the caffeine in it. Try Diet Mt. Dew. It has the normal amount caffeine, but no sugar and no calories. But like i said....pop in general isn't good for me, so I switched to Diet Snapple with lemon. :D

Any juice based drink is full of calories. That is why I only drink beer at work.

Whenever I have to work late (over 12 hours), I always eat 2 snickers bars and slam a 20oz. Mountain Dew. Works for me!

I don't normally have time to get sleepy at work. I'm too busy.

Oh man, I use to work the 3rd shift years ago, sometimes without getting a day off. The only way I could stay awake is to sleep for 10 hours during the day. I don't envy you guys.

I thought ecsasty made you horny.:idunno:

And Mikey is right. Diet Coke and Pepsi still have caffeine in them. They make non-caffeinated versions called Diet, Caffeine-free Coke and Diet, Caffeine-free Pepsi. Unless it specifically says no caffeine, chances are it's in there.

that is correct.

IMO it is the worst drug you can take. Right up there with Heroin.

Really? It's that bad? I have NEVER tried any drug or even the household stuff kids are taking now, but for some reason, ecstasy intrigues me. I don't know why. But, I think that would be the one drug I would be tempted to take. Although, with my luck, I'd drop dead after one try like all those girls on the commercials they run about it. What is it? A pill or a liquid?
