    Eat More Fat. Duh! :P

      Ohh, I was reading your journal, and I made fish curry last night, too! It was omfg delicious.


      That's exactly why I'm afraid to try phsychedelics and drugs of that manner-- I'll be stuck like that forever,man! I'm afraid that the person I'd become after such a strong experience would be someone I wouldn't like! lol


      Also, I agree, Derpamix and Zach journals would definitely be something that'd keep my attention, I love reading what both of you guys have to say and seriously value the opinions of everyone who writes in this journal
      It's all about the pictures. The only way I can captivate an audience.

      Drugs expand your mind - they allow you to see things that you might have otherwise been blind to. After that, it's just you, your new found knowledge, and what you decide to do with it. I know I say that I'll never be the same, but it's because of what I've learned. I'm still just me. Anyway, I would not recommend experimenting with this stuff until you are in a good place (emotionally) to begin with. That can lead to a bad experience.
      Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

      • Meh, my journal would just make you guys (girls) jealous. "Breakfast was pizza and chocolate milk, dropped two lbs last night, abz lookin stellar!".

        Really though i dont have much to comment on in my life, just eat, play with kid and work out. I think derp would be much more fascinating. The Dear Zach might be good though since i answer lots of questions in PM's.

          It would be hilarious - can you imagine how many people you'd annoy???

          Oh, and help.

            Drugs open doors in your mind. Some people don't want those doors opened.

            Usually people with a lot of control issues (ie. they are afraid to lose control) can't cope with drugs and have bad trips (or "mares" as we say in Ireland ) Drugs itched a scratch for me cos' I always wanted to lose control, and they helped me escape. Now if I take them it's just as an enhancement to an experience, or in the case of psychedelics, it's because I want to see / learn something new.

              Well put, and totally accurate for me as well.

              • Thursday, May 2

                Food/Digestion:
                - Late morning: Carrot and orange juice (~ 3 cups), Maple syrup mate
                - Lunch: 3 hb eggs, large bowl of applesauce
                - Afternoon: maple syrup mate
                - Dinner: Can of tuna, an egg, turkey, and rice stir fried in coconut oil; cantaloupe w/ drizzle of maple syrup
                - Snack: cantaloupe, Enjoy Life chocolate chips (not real food, sue me)
                I don't think it gets much sugarier than this….

                - Swear I'm going to eat gelatin tomorrow
                - Really curious again, and a rough estimate returned ~1500 cal (only?? If I hadn't eaten those chocolate chips I'd be down 200!) ~190g carb, ~80g protein, ~50g fat. That's about 50% carb. Not too accurate, but that's the idea.

                - Bloat: moderate
                - BMs: very good

                Thirst:
                - Still so thirsty. Am I not salting enough? Maybe I should be doing coconut water (electrolytes) instead of the mate. It's starting to get warm out anyway, so tea will become uncomfortable to drink unless chilled.

                Sleep/Energy/Temp: All related?
                - Slept from 2(?)-7:30. Though I was exhausted and ready for bed at 10:30. It wasn't just my roommate and her love interest's overtly flirtatious giggling or the sound of Mario Party penetrating our paper thin walls with full clarity that kept me awake, no. It was the fantasies - the thoughts of taking a blunt object to their skulls - that kept me tossing through those early hours. Oh, and the thought of calling her long distance boyfriend and asking how he felt about it. And yes, dear, I did hear you groaning at 7:30 this morning as you left the house with a hangover. Poor thing. /Rant
                - Woke up exhausted, headachy, and spent the entire morning shivering so hard I was shaking. It's 60 degrees outside…
                - Rest of day had a surprising amount of energy with no crashes. Thanks to the sugar fuel?? Maybe.

                Brain Fog:
                - Forgot to mention yesterday, it's much better.

                Acne:
                - Still pretty clear. A few bumps here or there but overall my skin looks great.

                Mood:
                All over the effing the place. I'm furious, I'm crying, I'm laughing, I want to punch someone, I want to hug everyone. What da fuck. I think it's due to massive amounts of stress

                Activity:
                Went on a romp through the woods - jogging up and down hills, maybe for a total of 10 minutes. Walked the rest. Needed to let go of some pent up energy.

                • DerpaDerp, had my first dose of noopept this morning (15 mg: 10 orally, 5 sublingually*). For about 10 minutes everything became very overwhelming (mostly brain fog and my nystagmus**) and then it all just dissipated into... clarity and serenity. Nothing amazing or mind blowing; everything just felt.. easy. Like it should. No brain fog. It's probably all placebo. I know it's cumulative so I'm not expecting real results for a while.

                  * I've read much on the subject of its bioavailability. Apparently most of it does get absorbed through the GI tract despite it being a peptide. However, its effects are more immediate sublingually, so I'm probably going to experiment with each method.
                  ** Nystagmus is the eyesight condition I have. Basically, my eyes move back and forth rapidly and it's easily provoked by certain things (usually fatigue and adrenaline)

                  • Nice! I wonder if anyone has snorted it yet?

                    • I did look around the net out of curiosity. The general consensus is that there are no added benefits (vs taking it sublingually).

                      Snorting is not very pleasant, so unless it's worth it (in the case of other, more fun, powdery drugs) I think I'll pass

                        100% absorption isn't wholly necessary since noopept is such a potent racetam. Sublingual is about 95% absorption rate, and noopept is really soluble in alcohol too, so you can mix it with hard liquor for improved absorption. Besides the noopept that was absorbed in the GI tract, the rest of it will continue on to the hepatic system, but neither effect the noopept that already crossed the blood brain barrier.

                        I want to know about the half-life of noopept. I don't think it's placebo, I wasn't expecting anything amazing as I never do with stimulants or relaxants, but I was pleasantly surprised. I take it under the tongue with small amounts of whiskey.

                        And, yeah, the ease of mind is almost majestic. Colors more vivid, I just sit in the evening smoking and watching the wind make the trees dance around, and thoughts just come to me, memories suppressed, wants, desires, etc;

                        It really sort of opened my mind to just how depressed I really was. The calm that came with it, as well as the lifting of mental blocks being drowned in sorrow and anxiety.

                        That's awesome that you reacted well to it immediately, I think gradually upping the dose then tapering off for a month or so after a few months will help so you don't build a tolerance to it. Maybe stacking it with other racetams too. Which is what I plan to do.

                          Apparently it mitigates some of the side effects of alcohol as well. I might try it, though it doesn't seem all that necessary.

                          That's really great about the depression. I'm so glad it's opening you up in that way. Do you think it's making you see yourself more objectively?

                          Yeah, seems like a good sign. I'm just hoping it can help with the fog and the memory issues.

                          As for colors/visuals, I think the sustained visual disturbances I've acquired from other substances became a bit more pronounced in ways... Eyes closed, I had an intensely bright light flash through my vision. Much brighter than usual.

                          I've heard of some people taking the weekends off? But I know the original literature says to take a month off after a few uninterrupted months of use.

                          • Man i want to give this a try. My only fear is that it will be something i dont want to cycle off of or get addicted to. Orrr have it banned and unable to get it.

                              I don't think addiction is an issue. At worst you go back to baseline. As for cycling, like Derp said you can always cycle with other racetams.

                              When has legality ever stopped anyone from getting their hands on a substance they want?

                                Well depends on the legality.

                                But what if baseline sucks after months of mental stimulation? Could be pretty depressing. Im the same way with steroids, i would totally give them a go but i think it would suck to come off them.
