I have found great fortune by coming across noopept. Stronger than piracetam, the only other nootropic I am familiar with. Piracetam never fazed me much other than helping a drug's comedown feel easier. As for previous drug experiences, you name it, I've done it. And then some. My research has held emphasis in well... research chemicals of the psychedelic variety.

Five days before starting this was the end of a pretty shitty episode in my life which entailed prescription adderall and xanax addiction. I was acting a fool so I had to quit but the withdrawal screwed with my head. Along comes this nifty little package full of the legal stuff. Doses here are speculated but fairly accurate. It came with a scooper of 8-12 mg. Recommended dosing is 10-30 mg per day. Here is how the following week went.

Day 1: Upon finding my shipment, I take a couple scoops equaling out 20 mgís more or less. Now, the first thing I want to note is that I never crashed off the monster [caffeine] I had drunk earlier. Instead I was starving and I got to eat about an hour in, the first thing that day around 4-5pm. Iíve been in a jolly mood today but it can be attributed to a couple other things: Iíve started running again, got over the physical phase of a benzo withdrawal, and I was free from schoolwork/work which hadnít been the case in a while. I redosed on ~20 mgís before 9pm. I feel clearheaded and had a hard time going to and staying asleep. Crazy vivid dreams though; canít say it was positive but that tends to be the case.

Day 2: ~20 mg in the morning as I wake up and ~20 around noon. Staying awake in class was a breeze. Had a coffee, didnít really need it but enjoyed the taste.

That night I took phenibut: 2 g at 6:30pm. I noticed nothing two hours later. I ate another 2 grams and still nothing two hours later. However I was hanging out with friends and had no anxiety about me, which is a lot to say just a week after quitting xanax cold turkey. I stood up ready to leave at about 12:30 am. Oh. I was definitely feeling it now. Super mellow. I went home, got some sleep and woke up feeling like a million bucks. I was literally more excited than I can remember being in a long time.

Day 3: Same doses and same effects. Also supplementing with lecithin (for choline) and fish oil.

I took phenibut again. 3 grams. 2.5 hours later 2 grams. Yeahhh buddy. 2 hours after that I was feeling loopy and hella chill. I woke up after just a 5 or 6 hours and was wide awake and still feeling awesome and just a bit disoriented. There is an interesting sort of nausea that comes along with this chemical but for me it is easily dismissible. I did go back to sleep though as I usually get 8+ hours.

Day 4: Same doses and same effects. No phenibut tonight as tolerance builds up quickly and there are addiction risks.

Day 5: Dose changes from 20mg 2x/day to 30mg once. Iíve been having a more steady wakefulness during the day; increased memory and focus for sure. I wouldnít call it recreational but this kind of enhanced cognition is definitely pleasurable.

Day 6: 30mg as I wake up. The strangest thing has been going on. Every morning since I started dosing I wake up 5 to 10 minutes before my alarm. It still takes about an hour to get my lazy ass out of bed but it is pretty cool waking up just before I need to.

Day 7: Still waking up early. I am in a much better place than I was a week ago. The clouds, anxiety, depressionÖ It all seems to be gone. Also, I seem to have so many hours in the day it has encouraged me to join organizations and expand my social life. In addition, my endurance has doubled. I jumped from my old 30 minute run to running for an hour. From 1.5 hours of yoga to 3.

I canít say this is all attributable to the supplements I was taking nor can I say anyone will have a similar experience. This was my subjective experience and I find there is a subtle power in this chemical which is highly under looked.
