I drink ALOT of 'V' so this month I am going cold-turkey. Please help support me and raise funds and awareness of ME within New Zealand.

Hi there. My name is Jeremy and I'm an addict.

No my addiction isn't alcohol - it's something much worse.....Energy Drinks.

The first thing I do in the morning is crack open a can of 'V' and call that my breakfast.

Throughout the day I drink numerous cans and the end result becomes approximately a litre or more every day.

This may seem hilarious to some but it's a major addiction and a serious problem.

The amount of caffeine and sugar inside energy drinks is ridiculous and I've become completely dependent on it to function in my day to day life.

For "Dry July" I have decided to challenge myself and go Energy Drink Free for the entire month.

For those that know me, especially those that work with me, barely see me without a can in my hand at almost any given moment.

I have set up this Givealittle page to raise awareness for a condition called ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) also know as CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) as I have personal ties with family and friends with this disorder.

This will be no easy walk in the park for me as I struggle to function physically and mentally without the "kick" I get from energy drinks.

Please help support me and raise funds and awareness of ME within New Zealand.

Any donations are greatly appreciated!

I have family and friends that experience ME/CFS and want to show my support for what they have to endure on a day to day basis
