I used to average around 75 hours per week when I worked in a plant, so I will chime in here. I typically worked 12 hour shifts 6-7 days a week. I did that for about 4 months before I burned myself out; honestly, it is just too much to try to work that many hours and have a life. I work 56 hours a week now and it sucks, but I find time to do what I need to do. Your body will eventually adjust to the amount of sleep that it is getting but don't start to rely on a crutch like coffee or energy drinks, otherwise your body will become dependent on it and you won't be able to function without it.

I was doing ~90-100hrs a week 38hrs of work plus time to get to work/get ready =~42hrs
then I was doing uni 3 times a week from 7am to 9pm with 2 hrs or more travel time.
Was hard moved closer to uni and dropped a bunch of hours when I transferred so much happier now got less money but the stress was a killer.Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think.
