T+ 0:00
100 mg oral Modafinil (pill / tablet)
  T+ 7:00 3 bowls smoked Cannabis  
  T+ 10:00 0.25 mg oral Pharms - Alprazolam  


Yesterday while I was with a friend of mine, she asked me if I had any painkillers (I usually do b/c I have sciatica). Seeing as I only had 3 Vicodins left that I didn't want to part with, I gave her a handful of Tylenol 3's instead. To pay me back she gave me 4 200 mg. Provigils.

She said they would keep me awake and alert, and as I have been anxious to try Adderall or some other stimulant (however Provigil and amphetamines aren't the same at all except for their ability to keep you awake) I figured why not? The next day as I was getting ready for work around 2:00, I broke one of the provigils in half and swallowed it with water.

A couple hours went by and I felt nothing. Around 5:00 when my boss left the University (I work at my school) I started working on some homework. As I was working I noticed I hadn't stopped moving my pen for an hour straight. This is highly unusual for me as I have a very short attention span when it comes to homework. I'll at least take a break to rub my temples and I didn't even do that. I kept working on my homework until I left and concentration came very easy to me.

I didn't really feel stimulated, and my apetite was still normal. Later on in the evening I came home and throughout the night proceeded to smoke 3 bongs of cannabis from about 9:00pm to 12:00am. There was no difference felt when smoking. From other reports I knew I might have a hard time falling asleep and my boyfriend's snoring wouldn't help any, so around 1 a.m. I popped a xanax and fell right to sleep. I did wake up however around 3 a.m. and had a hard time falling back asleep.

In my opinion there is no recreational value whatsoever at the dose I took for this drug but it really helped me get my homework done. I'll be saving the rest for finals.
