But at least some intrepid referendum addicts were trying to come up with ways to keep their eyelids from dropping...

(Warning: we don't necessarily recommend trying to do all these things at once. That could get messy).

If it's good enough for Made in Chelsea's Toff, it's good enough for us.

Downing some coffee, obvs.

Combine coffee with sugar and shouting at TV, and you've surely got a foolproof plan for staying awake.

You could always get your own leader board going.

OK, yeah, you need some rules. What about "take a shot every time they say the word Europe?" There might be some hangovers in the morning...

Because why not? No reason why Netflix and chill can't assist in referendum watch.

Well, here's hoping these tips work...*downs 5th cup of coffee* *searches for anything sugary* *pins eyelids open*
