Agreed, with training. But back to the OP, I think adequate sleep would go a lot further than a lack of sleep made up for by energy drinks.

Especially on those multi day trips, where your body needs to recover, sleep is your friend. I even sometimes take afternoon naps after a hard day of boarding if I'm going again the next day.
