5 hour energy. Non-Damaging to your insides (or so they say) and keeps you away for at least 4 hours, without that energy drink crash. (Again, so they say) Just don't drink more than 1 per 5 hour period.

I used to pass out instead of "going to sleep" it was very irritating and I usually end up sleeping in and loosing precious time, which drives me insane, so, one day I decided to be healthier and switch to drinking only water and occasionally diet soda and then I found I can stay up very late, 2-3 AM in the morning even. Ever since then I function much better.

Tea drank at most an hour before sleep.
Listening to recording I have of my sister arguing with me and/or my mom.
Doing algebra problems. It's impossible to sleep while doing something so mentally trying.

Drinking. I drink about 3 liters every other hour, since I barely drink anything in the day. Same with eating.

What works for me is having a mental stimulant like playing video games. Although music can keep me awake(like a lot of people said in this thread), sometimes it actually helps me to fall asleep if there are no mental stimulants to go with it. If you listen to loud music, I would recommend having a mental stimulant also.

Bright lights and warm air. I always have to have the lights off and the air has to be cold in order for me to sleep.

Using electronics with bright screens, such as computers and phones helps me.

Rap music.

I listen to 1995-2005 era gangster rap when I want to stay awake.

Not much tbh. I'm bad at staying awake and never pull all nighters because of it. If I really need to stay up late snacking or not sitting down usually works. Sometimes I'm not tired so I can stay up late (like that time I watched OITNB until 3:00am) but usually I go to bed fairly early

For me I hardly need anything to stay awake, falling asleep now there's the real challenge. But for when I do need to be awake and alert, cold beverages always seem to do the trick, even if only for a little while. Coffee, Energy Drinks, Water, and lately Orange juice, lots and lots of Orange Juice. :lol-fox:
