Surge Recovery and whey protein aren't performance enhancers that have effects you notice immediately (like caffeine, creatine, or beta alanine). Surge Recovery and whey are, essentially, well-designed food concentrates. So in a way, it's like you're asking, "Will I become dependent on a good steak dinner or a grilled chicken sandwich?"
If anything, a case could be made that Surge Workout Fuel would cause a more noticeable difference with/without, because it has different ingredients.
If you have access to Surge and/or whey, use them because they'll enhance your recovery and help you get through difficult workouts. It's those workouts that will improve your strength/speed/conditioning. If you start off having access to Surge or whey, and then you don't have them for whatever reason, do your best to fill the nutritional gap that would occur.
