Do you take performance enhancing drugs like adderall to have an edge when you play in multiplayer or competitive games?
>being so weak you need drugs to actually be good at video games
Coffee improves performance, mood, vigilance, etc. by some 10%+.
Also, picture relevant.
Back in high school I used caffeine that way. When you're addicted to caffeine you don't have on days and off days, you decide when your on and off. Whenever you don't have caffeine in your system you're going to feel like shit and play poorly, when you do have caffeine in your system you're at the top of your game.
These days I don't do that because I don't really care that much, caffeine addiction is unpleasant, and I smoke a ton of cigarettes now so caffeine hardly affects me anyway.
"Winners don't do drugs."
I had this friend who was a big pill popper. and when he couldn't score xanny's or whatever he'd take gobs of caffeine pills at a time.
It was the trashiest thing I'd ever witnessed.
He robbed me and moved out while I was at work.
I don't know how people can take it. When I was prescribed low-dose Adderall by my psychiatrist, it felt like I was going to have a heart attack. I'm skinny manlet, and I regularly do cardio, but it felt like my blood pressure was cranked to 11.
My tradeoff is soreness everywhere from fapping so much. It literally turns the day into a fap/exercise session I fucking love it.
ADD is when a kid is not interested in boring monotonous shit like math equations and writing essays. ADHD is just a normal functioning kid.
Being bored isn't a mental disorder.
Main reason I quit back in the day was because I would get extremely fucking paranoid. Like I would get up to take a piss, I'd walk past my back door, stop, turn around, and then I'd turn the handle and pull to make sure the door was locked. A moment after than I would do it again. Anywhere between 5 and like 120 times or some shit.
That's because I'm not implying that. All I said is that drinking it can be done in an addictive way that can be useful for playing games. Really though coffee is inefficient. There are plenty of teas with higher caffeine content, and if you really want to do it right you can just buy caffeine pills.
yeah, i drink mountain dew.
I know, I know - it will fuck up my body, but what can you do really
Damn, I can only imagine how paranoid this kid was after I flattened his tires, ripped his battery out of his truck, smashed his back window, and held him up for all the money he could get in different visits then after he robbed me.
I'm providing scientific reasoning from research on what exactly causes low focus. If your reply is "they're just bored", why post? Furthermore, what the fuck do you imagine low dopamine to be? If you feel like shit and have no anticipation, of course that might seem like "boredom".
Id understand if someone took drugs to win that mad dosh during a tournament, but are there really people out there who use drugs with the sole purpose of shitting on retards in regular ranked matchmaking or evene worse, games without any kind of ladder system?
Like do some people really sit down and say to themselves: "Im in the mood for some videogames, time to boot up cs:go, drop some adderall and pwn noobs in silver 2!"?
Having low dopamine =/= ADD/ADHD
Dude, I was diagnosed with ADD as a kid and took adderal for years, it's all bullshit. Parents give it to kids when they want their kids to stop being hyper and when the kid isn't interested in standardized education math work.
Most teas don't have more caffine, but doses larger than a cup of coffee seem to have limited benefits.. as you still have to be able to rapport with your surroundings and what you can do.
Most of the benefits come from caffeine, but coffee has nutrients as well.
>Having low dopamine =/= ADD/ADHD
You seem to have no clue what you're talking about.
Might be differences in sensitivity to the Adderall. I happened to go to a doctor's appointment for a checkup while I was taking it and my systolic BP was 20 mmHG higher than normal.
Do they make pills that equate to the amount of caffeine you'd take from one (1) cup of coffee (black) because I'd be down for it, however I dislike the taste of coffee so much.
>16 year user
Works great when I'm playing fighters and coding.
Only negative side is hardcore mood swings, easily irritated, and you will lose your freaking mind.
>Parents give it to kids when they want their kids to stop being hyper and when the kid isn't interested in standardized education math work.
You realize that Adderall and other and other ADD medications are stimulants, right? That's to provide extra stimulation to increase dopamine prevalence.
Probably, but you could split up the doses as well.
I am a pro poker player and take adderal on most of my sessions.
Works pretty well. Would not take it for gaming though as damaging my body for something as trivial as winning in CS:GO is not worth it imo.
Beause theres a lot more going on than just some number being too low or too high.
Everything relating to the brain and the psyche is complicated as fuck and we dont understand it to 100% yet.
No cream, that shit is bad for you. Look, I don't want to add 320+ worth of calories for my caffeine intake. I drink my coffee black in the morning, but I usually just try to down it as fast as possible. Black coffee is very very low in calories, I have all my meals planned out.
Back when I was messing around with that stuff, I found it nearly impossible to masturbate or even get hard. An attractive grill was messing around with my flaccid penis and I couldn't even get it up.
That was the closest I have been to having sex in my life :(
For some reason caffeine seems to work differently on me depending on my mood. Sometimes it just doesn't help at all, other times I'll get crystal clear focus and even feel a slight "euphoria", and I always know beforehand which effects it'll cause. Tea never gives me the euphoric feeling but it does help me focus and doesn't give me the shakes if I drink too quickly.
I would take aderall to study for tests back in uni. I'd skip out on tons of classes and hw, and rely on my aderall fix to cram enough on the tests to allow me to do well enough to pass. I won't say it was a good way of doing things, but I graduated.
Anyways, every time I'd take one to study, I got the biggest sense of satisfaction by the end. At that point I'd legitimately learned everything and it felt good. But then I knew in a couple hours it'd all go away and I wouldn't give enough of a shit to bother until the next cram session.
It bums me out thinking how much I can actually give a shit, but just can't on my own.
>drink loads of soda
>pretty damn good in games and online, consistently holding high KDR
>now nearing 30
>have given up all forms of soda/caffeine and drink water for the past 5 years
>slow reaction times, die all the time, prefer games with not many inputs
I thought it was just a part of getting old
Speed is for faggots. I just want to feel nice while playing vidya
>ADHD isn't real
Being unable to control the way my body reacts to the stimuli in my environment is a pain. You normies are able to unconsciously block off stuff whereas I'm always connected with my surroundings whether I want it or not.
Try having a nice chat at dinner with someone when you can't help but listen to all the conversations around you happening, the music, all the sounds and smells from other tables.
When you finally get to break away into your own little world of concentration and someone breaks said concentration you lose EVERYTHING you were concentrating on because you temporarily and unintentionally gave your full attention to whatever interrupted you.
People with ADHD are like hunters in a farmer's world. We can give 100% effort one day but then turn into 25% the next, whereas everyone else is able to give 75% consistently.
ADHD is overdiagnosed, it's true. But it's also overlooked on people with it who tried hard to compebsate like myself who didn't get properly diagnosed until they were adults.
Imagine a train constantly being derailed anytime the conductor looked away.
Adderall is really the best with caffeine pills as second place. Meth and shit like that doesn't work cuz you'll be too high to do anything in most cases.
>giving up coffee
I mean thats perfectly fine if you just don't want to feel like you are addicted to caffeine and stuff, but all medical studies suggest that modest caffeine intake has literally no adverse effects on your health.
Will it make me go ahegao?
I take lisdexamfetamine so I can stay up for days on end to play vidya only downside is that doing so for more than 2 day will give you a hell of a hangover / cause you to get a bit crazy from sleep dep
>mfw Im on a 5 day binge
It's probably age. The boosts caffeine gives to reaction time/memory/executive function only last till you're habituated to it, and then you need caffeine to stay normal unless you want to go cold turkey for a few weeks.
I really liked opiates for a while, but lately they just haven't given me that euphoria even when I take long tolerance breaks and/or up the dose. I guess that's what "chasing the dragon" means.
Speed still gives me good vibes, but it isn't worth the sleeplessness and the terrible hangover. Why are drugs so shit?
>Do you take performance enhancing drugs
>For video games
Please tell me this is a joke and not a real thing.
>tfw cumming after 16hour fapathon
>tfw cumming after your first fapathon
I agree, but that doesn't mean it isn't a side effect of being unable to successfully control too much stimuli in my environment.
That's why I wear headphones at work so I can stay on task.
My attention span is great so long as it doesn't get broken so I have to manage ways to prevent it from being broken.
Thats how you fucking do it man. Fap while keeping yourself on edge for hours and hours and then finally cum in one glorious orgasm.
Get with the times punk it aint nuffin stuffin suppositories jectin stims IV pre game snortin during and after game baby fucking were like the russians from rocky but of games bitch.
Lol taking more protein isn't going to up your brain function unless you're a malnourished skeleton. Excess protein is converted to fat. Protein is not a preformance enhancing drug unless you eat terribly.
I used to take the shit in school because shrink said I had ADHD. I never really felt a difference, since I guess I took the shit all the time and it was just "normal" to me.
Then in high school I got taken off the stuff because health insurance suddenly decided they didn't cover it, and holy shit, it felt like I became shit at everything. I had trouble concentrating on school work, my grades plummeted, eventually had to drop out... Hell, even playing video games that I usually played kicked my ass.
Fuck insurance companies.
I did this frequently when I animated porn. I'd basically jerk off for the whole 8 hours of animating and let me tell you, the finale doesn't feel pleasant to me at least, and doing this every time has desensitized my dick to the point where orgasms aren't as great as they used to be. There needs to be a middle ground
Skimming the thread I have a question.
Prescribed Adderal or Ritalin or some shit when I was middle school age because shrink pegs me with ADD and I stopped taking it after I ended up with suicidal thoughts and always felt really...off.
So there's no way I actually had it, right?
>tfw when i'm on amphetamines I don't want t play vidya
I just lurk fourchin all day and shitpost until I'm to tired to fap.
Oh that's how my dick is without drugs
Performance anxiety sucks, still a virgin
>taking more protein isn't going to up your brain function unless you're a malnourished skeleton

Which depends on levels of fitness. "Not enough" is potentially common, as the label DV is 50g (weightlifting sources cite .7-1g/lb. up to the safe limit, so potentially 150g for that same weight.).
Studies show that the amino acids for neurochemical production do increase them.
Exactly, no pain no gain.
I fap every day so it might be that I've gotten "used to" or forgotten the huge orgasms you get from holding off and am satisified from smaller ones.
>Took anti-depressants for a few years
>Ended up with a really low lobido
>Never feel like fapping
>When i do, i can barely make it last an hour if i'm lucky
>Barely any pleasure from it
>Tfw your dick is permanently fucked
that happens to me with stimulants. shit sucks, was taking caffeine and ephedrine hcl, dick shrinks into a raisin.
That is false. They improve performance only if you have existing problems with attention (ADHD) that you know or don't know about (didn't pay attention or compared yourself with others regarding it). Average person like me finds that stims make their mind and body more nervous (which affects performance negatively), limit imagination and cause me to be able to concentrate only on one thing. Also, if the given drug causes improved mood or euphoria in larger dose, then you're likely to not concentrate on work, but feel like "fuck it, I'm gonna have fun" and then spend your time talking, talking, talking and fucking around.
I've done many drugs and found that my performance is best sober. Everything else is fun enhancing.
vitamin C is practically the only supplement you can take safely since any excess will simply be flushed out, most other vitamins you get from food and if you take it in pill form that shit will not only do no good due to poor bio-availability but will actually poison you
>sometimes used to play mp vidya after getting wasted at parties
>always felt I have to explain to everyone I'm drunk so they won't judge my subpar skills because I'm competitive as fuck
>everyone probably thought I'm a 13 yo who has to tell everyone how cool he is because he drink
I love adderall for the first 5 hours but then after that it gives me a bad stomach ache, makes me horny but also gives me semi erectile dysfunction which is a nightmare, then despite staying awake for 16+ hours I can only manage to fal asleep for like 3 hours for the next 2 days. It feels like something that could turn my life around if it wasn't for all the shitty side effects, so I can't take it.
What the fuck man stimulants cause Dopamine release it should be easy as balls to fap. Now I'm wondering what causes this in some people medically.
This usually happens to me too, but for some reason I managed to get my dick hard last Friday even though I had drunk shitloads of alcohol before doing speed. Wasn't able to cum though, so had to do a second run in the morning. Talking to chicks is piss easy when you're fucked up.
>taking the pharmaceutical jew
just kill yourself now and get it over with, the rest of your life is going to be miserable once you're actually addicted (which you will be, trust me)
>b-b-but i can stop anytime
why lie to yourself? if you can't get through the day without using some kind of mind-altering substance, at least smoke weed or drink alcohol like a normal human being. pills are degenerate in the literal non-/pol/ sense
I can get hard, but my dick is way smaller. Pretty sure my blood vessels are just constricting to microscopic levels.
I agree. I forgot to add that all drugs tend to work a bit different on every person. For an example, some people love the way Xanax work. They seem to be lively and happy. For me, Xanax did nothing but make my head empty and sleepy.
I prefer klonopin, valium or the various RC benzos like clonazolam, flubromazepam, flubromazolam, etizolam...
>tfw you have to fap fast and hard to shemale porn to even go off
Why do you keep lumping everyone into the same proverbial boat? People do react differently to drugs you know. What causes addiction in one may not in another, reactions vary both psychologically and medically.
>Why do you keep lumping everyone into the same proverbial boat? People do react differently to drugs you know. What causes addiction in one may not in another, reactions vary both psychologically and medically.
>b-b-b-b-b-b-b-but i can stop anytime!!!
Jesus thank god I don't know that feel that sounds miserable.
Personally, I can and do stop. I'll be taking it every day for months and once classes are over I will stop during spring break, christmas break, etc. During those times off I don't ever particularly think or want of taking the drug. Its only a day or two before classes start up again that I'll start taking it again so I don't get smacked in the face by the effects after having been off it for extended periods of time.
you my man.
I believe every body works differently with weed, i get everything on the up side.
Im more active, more immersed on things, I produce content better....
I think I need adderall. I go into a cold sweat these days if I try to force myself to do anything that isn't immediately pleasant, shit's not normal. I haven't done any schoolwork besides on the morning it's due for years now and even other routine life stuff never gets done. Anything I think of that I should do just gets filed in the "stuff to do eventually" box in my brain and nothing ever happens, it can't go on forever
Eastern NY here.
A few years ago when I was involved in the scene, you could get a 15 mg pill for 5 bucks easy. Huge ripoff, but thats what people were willing to pay.
An honest person would give you 3 (15 mg) for 5 bucks.
I dunno how to get them in Finland.
Would love to try.
Then again I'd love to try cannabis too.
I've never used drugs in my life and I'm 30 but I'm curious. My life can't get any worse anyway but I have no idea how to obtain these things without Ukko Pekka Poliisista banging on my door the next day.
You don't need Adderall, you need a shrink man. Either that, or check the internet on advice how to better yourself and teach yourself to get shit done, to imprint a different way of going about things you need to do.
What do you mean? I'm hardly a hipster, I believe everyone likes different things and different drugs work for them better or worse than for others.
Drugs are a temporary reprieve and once you get dependent on them mentally, it'll be much worse in the future.
Sounds like some psychologically hangups and maybe a hard mix of procrastination. My brother quit college because of massive anxiety issues and who knows what else that manifested after high school. I am mystified by how paralyzing it is for him.
>tfw work in a pharmacy
>people here buying street pharmaceuticals
you make me sick
Drugs are a tool. A tool that just as easily as any other can be abused and misused. Your misconception stems from those you see around misusing that tool causing to place the blame on the drugs when it belongs solely on the poor bastards who misuse it.
I was fucked up for most of my life, felt foggy headed, no energy, never got any enjoyment out of anything. Felt like I could only ever do anything at 50%, though I could do lots of things at 50%. Always had some kind of tunnel vision.
Turns out I fucked up my neck as kid from being rambunctious. I remember I used to get really nasty headaches which were ultimately caused by tight neck muscles. They only stopped when my neck apparently got so tight that everything went numb. Started going to physio and massage, more or less referred to me as a freak for how unresponsive my neck was to any stimuli.
The first time I got put on tramadol for it a couple years back I felt so damn incredible, my neck completely loosened up, could see and think clearly. The drowsiness caused by the drug was so little compared to the gain in clarity that it didn't bother me at all. Stopped taking it after about a week felt great for another two weeks until my neck spasmed for whatever reason. After that the same dosage didn't work to negate my pain response or whatever, tried other opiates and they didn't really work either, upping the dosage didn't help either.
Ended up trying a nicotine patch, original dose of 21mg/day was enough to get me in to that same state, again felt incredible and was good for a few weeks after I stopped wearing them. Only had to deal with a day of withdrawal where I had the shits. Hit a point where I can't get an effective "high" with the dosages of nicotine I'm willing to take however.
Recently got my nerves in my neck burnt and things have calmed down, some muscles are still a bit tight but not nearly as bad, can actually think reasonably clearly without having to be high, things are promising.
Anyone know of any other drugs that can completely shut off your body's response to pain? Been put on a lot of different antidepressant-type drugs for pain control and I only felt the side-effects. I talked to my doc about pot but she didn't think it was a good idea.
Shit son Aspirin can kill you if you take enough of it. My mother had to have her stomach pumped when she was a kid when she ate all the aspirin in their medicine cabinet because it tasted like orange flavored candy.
This is so extremely false, I don't know what to tell you. Vitamin C isn't the only water soluble vitamin that gets excreted in urine. All B group vitamins except B12 are like that as well.
The only ingredient you need to worry about in multis is manganese, but even then, it is included in safe amounts.
Don't read pop-science websites but encyclopedia and medically/research confirmed info.
Spinach is hardly a good source of nutrients. For example, it contains lots of iron BUT the iron is bound to an iron-specific protein, making it insoluble also binding other iron available from your meal. I can see you're spouting momscience memes.
I wouldn't recommend taking amphetamines unless you're helplessly spacing out during minute long conversations with people or losing track of shit immediately after you've put it down.
The side effects of these meds can be pretty fucking brutal when you take them on a daily basis. I wouldn't be taking them if I didn't genuinely need them.
>tfw fapping regularly to gts city crushing with her ass and farts
Somehow I don't think I ever saw this coming.
No, but I once felt like I did. Years ago when I was playing Halo 3 online I remember everything suddenly... slowing down. It was like I was seeing in slow motion, and I had all the time in the world to think and react. It happened when one guy was jumping off a building and shooting at me. As soon as I killed him, everything went back to normal. To this day I still wonder what the fuck that was.
Haha, what? I don't find anything hardcore about doing drugs. It seems to me you're young and this is how you feel about substances you've never seen in your life.
Listen to that man.
I only take medication that my doctor gives me that is Klonopin before it was xanax.
Its not a performance enhancer with video games Since you usually give zero of a fuck when you take them or take too much of these medications, so in a competitive game you are OK be on the losing team plus the other problem is that it really fucks with your memory, I mean amnesia if you stop taking them for some days, you might even get confused by what day it is or having minor hallucinations.
But it brings a minor joy into vidya,
with opioids that is quite common that it happens, where the euphoria is gone after certain time of use.
Speed will do that, but don't use too much of it, I mean every day since your receptors do need some rest to get back to normal, the same is with any drugs.
It's just a game.
Why would you take drugs for a fucking video game, it makes even less sense than taking drugs for actual sports.
Well if they're already good enough to do comp they should just keep getting better by doing practice and shit, why stop now just because you're getting dosh from it?
Then again, I'm a nobody in pretty much everything so what do I know.
Me too actually, my friend always says he gets lazy and never wants to do anything but after taking a bucket hit I always find myself super focusing on my anatomy videos or colour and light ones or whatever that I would find boring normally
Well, you can always buy yourself some seeds and start growing it yourself. If you're having too many heatenings, wait for the summer and put the seeds somewhere outdoors, preferably in a place where jonnes don't find your plant.
I don't see any reason to spend my time convincing anyone that spinach isn't as good as they think. There's nutrition facts on the net and research regarding spinach. Anybody that cares about correct information will do the search themselves.
I looked it up and it looks like Spinach is just as good as I think. If you can find me credible studies that say Spinach is not good for you, then I'll believe you.
Otherwise, saying it's a mom science meme or whatever you said isn't going to make me change my mind.
