Don't be afraid to try. There are really only a few things to worry about.

Yeast selection and Quality Juice or Cider being the biggest. Make sure everything is sanitized and don't expose the cider to the air (as much as you can) especially in the secondary.

If you want to carbonate it, that's just one addition steps (with various methods).

Just give it a go, it's fairly easy all things considered.

Gatorade or Pedialyte is a better solution for home. Replaces electrolytes, and keeps you hydrated. I also usually take a multivitamin when I know I'm going to be drinking a lot, and it usually seems to help out a bit, too. Another thing I tell people is to drink a glass of water every couple rounds. It works wonders.
Electrolytes, its what plants crave!!!
