Long Time Lurker. First Time Brain Hacker
Brain Hacking Legends,
I've lurked around the forums and Dave's websites for a while and feel that I have enough general information to about nootropics to be dangerous and now I'm looking for some specific guidance.
My diet is basically low carb, high fat. I exercise regularly and I probably sleep about 5-6 hours per night. I am trying to improve my focus and cognitive function so this week I started with CILTEP and have been having it with coffee and brain octane. I wouldn't say that I have noticed a significant improvement but I definitely don't feel drowsy in the afternoon like I used to on occasion. My focus is still not as good as it could be/has been when I was younger, but I work across a few sites and there is a fair bit of distraction at two of them.
I ordered some piracetam, which arrived today and I plan to add to my current stack tomorrow. I basically plan to run with that for a week and see how that goes. A lot of my research says choline is worth a look as a next step, are there any other suggestions I could look at?
What I am hoping to achieve is sharper and longer concentration and mental performance. I also want to try and turn off some of the self doubt so I can kick more ass, but not sure that nootropics will necessarily help with that...any thoughts or examples of things that have worked for you that I might further research and consider?
