Please Help A Novice With Nootropics.
I will tell you my experience so far:
Gaba Wave -- I enjoyed the effects (despite the taste) in helping me chill out and think clearly.
Unfair Advantage -- no effect.
Choline Force -- love it, but fairly mild.
I am curious about Ciltep, (which I took today for the first time,) and the racetam family.
Now, I know this board is full of experts. I know that, to a point, a novice's questions may be a bit annoying for the advanced folks. But everything I've read so far is way over my head, (hence perhaps the need for nootropics,) and I'd like to really understand this.
I took adderal for a while, abused it rather, and what happened after I quit was horrible: A year went by during which I had 0 energy, 0 emotion, 0 inspiration. It's as though I squeezed all the dopamine out of my brain. I don't want that to ever happen again, ever.
However, I am interested in things that may be naturally beneficial to my brain, non-chemical, sustainably so. From what I understand, Ciltep is such a thing.
What about racetams?
Would it be something to take every day, or only when needed? How do I know which one is right? Where would I get them?
If anyone feels like sharing the knowledge, please do. Yes, I have read through multiple threads on the topic, but they are all quite specific and advanced, or have no replies. So, hopefully the fate of this one will be different.
