Boooooring. :)

What if you use Ritalin b/c you need it, eh?


that is a different issue, but i don't need it so i don't use it. not saying everyone should follow what i do. i was just saying what i do.

Why does everyone I know from Loyola LA ask me for cocaine?

Maybe law students should be tested and kicked out for using allegedly performance enhancing substances.

Mormons are allowed caffeine, just not coffee or tea. A lot of Mormons go a little crazy about it and cut out more than they have to, but energy drinks, soft drinks, and 5 hour energy aren't technically against the rules.



I'm all about the 5 hour energy. I buy it by the case at costco.

Why can't Mormons drink coffee or tea? I was always under the impression it was because of the caffeine.

The people I knew in law school that didn't drink coffee at least occasionally were typically prescribed ritalin/adderall, and that's why they didn't drink coffee.



Does anyone know what the hell these are? Never heard of them.

Modafinil, Deprenyl, or other prescription drugs.
Racetams (piracetam, aniracetam, oxiracetam, etc).
Choline sources (alpha GPC, choline citrate, CDP choline, etc).
Sulbutiamine, Pyritinol, Picamilon.

That's the funny thing. For a while, I was going to class sleepy/tired even after working out and running in the morning. I started drinking tons of coffee to compensate for the drowsiness. Took me a while to realize that the weakest link in my schedule was my sleep deprivation. :lol:


That's why I noticed a big difference after I started sleeping earlier and longer.

+1. Not getting behind on sleep is key for me. It just makes everything better.

Who doesn't use caffeine?

And I've been trying a piracetam and choline mix after reading some about it online, but to be honest, I don't really notice a difference. Probably won't buy more once I'm out.

For those asking about it - google?

It's amazing how many people in my school/section don't get enough sleep, or at least claim to not have time to sleep, meanwhile, i get 8 hours a night, as a result i don't drink/coffee or tee, i may have some soda every now and then for caffeine.

Also, TCR is schrooms and LSD for studying, they open your mind.

Never drink coffee, always get 7.5-8 hours. Works well.
