I’ve experimented with countless nootropics over the years but I find myself always coming back to good old Piracetam. It just works, and for an impressive spectrum of problems and ailments of the mind.
What follows in this post is a personal account of how I’ve used Piracetam to succesfully keep the black dog of depression bridaled and at bay.
In my previous nootropics giveaway, I selected ALCAR as one of the nootropics to ship out. ALCAR is a true undercover nootropic. The compound receives little attention and is mostly overshadowed by cutting edge nootropic compounds.
It’s time to make ALCAR great again and shed light on this powerful compound.
The past week I’ve been in the process of moving to a new place with some friends. While I have a very minimal inventory of things, my friends could have been on an episode of TLC hoarders. They had tons of stuff to move including a giant piano (this was fun.) Because they’re my friends however I was happy to help them move.
Depression has been a constant companion of mine since my early teenage years and has persisted throughout my 20’s. I have no doubt that I have found a life long friend in depression. Sometimes the bouts are deeper than others. On my worst days I resort to heavy drinking followed by spending many days in bed consumed by darkness, unable to even get up to take a shower. I let responsibilities slide and do just enough work to pay the rent. Nobody can reach me on my phone when I’m in this state. I block out the entire world and recluse like some creature of the night. I find solace in the late night hours when I know most of this world is sleeping and it is only me. Maybe I’ll go for a long walk at night and then hit up the 7/11 for my first meal in quite some time. Talking to the cashier is the first real human interaction in what seems like forever. I feel strange.
It’s funny to hear people who don’t drink or use drugs say they aren’t dependent on chemicals for their well being. They turn their nose up in the air at addicts all the while chasing the same thing the junkie on the street is – the Dopamine rush. Granted, this sober individual has found ways to get their fix in a more sustainable and healthy way.
Let’s take a look at how dopamine plays into your motivation and its crucial role in maintaining a positive sense of well being.
