5 days a week (single day breaks to make my supply last longer)
the morning 1 800mg piracetam, 1 tab 4,5mg hydergine.
Drink green tea 3 times a day (morning, afternoon, and late afternoon)
afternoon (800mg) and sometimes 1 tab of hydergine but I feel this isn't necessary
Evening: one 3mg tab of melatonin for sleep
Perhaps before I go about describing my experiences I should describe the sort of person I am. I am 18, diagnosed with 'high functioning autism', but don't let this fool you I'm not a ‘cardboard personality’, I seem to defy to the negative traits, I am very socially aware (and active), I love going to raves and dancing, and I even enjoy listening to Venetian Snares and Squarepusher! (Autistic people are suppose to hate certain noises apparently), not to mention I am very perceptive and I have a curious gravity towards artistic pursuits. Don't believe the myths that psychologists say about Autistic people, you can be Autistic and function absolutely perfectly, and on the other end you can be a bit helpless - It is a spectrum! Fortunately I have alot of the positive traits, my negatives (which are few) is occasional social paranoia and restlessness.
With this nootropic arsenal, it’s a case of ‘turtle and hare’ when compared to amphetamines and stimulants. While with the hare the effects are instantaneous and obvious, sooner along the line you are going to sleep (crash) and feel much lousier. At least, with these nootropics the effects can be felt after 2 or 3 weeks of regular consistent doses. I didn’t ‘feel’ it like a hit, but after several months I noticed my personality, mood and cognition had changed. For the months I’ve abstained I would feel a bit less on the ball then when I’m on a nootropic course.
The smart drugs definitely potentiate other substances (in my opinion). For the record I am not a regular drug user, just casually and on occasions, I like to stay sensible…maybe cannabis once every 2 or 3 weeks and a pill maybe once a month but I would do maybe more when there isn’t exam pressure. If I compared myself to my raver friends, I am rolling considerably more and longer then them. I remember one night I had maybe up to 3 hydergine tablets and 6 piracetam pills (spaced out during the night) and about 5 ecstasy pills (3 were turbos which are more speedier and dirty, the others were ecstasy) – Let me tell you I was incredibly spaced out and sociable, I was dancing like a raving lunatic, I was feeling incredible vibes with everyone. At one point of the night I took my shirt off and made about a dozen other people take their shirts off and they felt the loving vibe I was sending them! I made several friends and surprisingly I could talk intellectually. I was rolling for 11 hours (and the last pill taken only being 3 hours into the experience) compared to my friends who were crashing and coming down after 5 hours of the night, they took more or less similar as much as I had.
The ecstasy felt incredibly powerful, it felt like the first time all the time. I was singing childish songs(like Go Go Power Ravers! Waving my glowsticks at unsuspecting people catching the morning trains lol) and being incredibly witty and social. At first this annoyed my friends whose heads were exploding, but I learnt not to rub it in and I spent the rest of the tube journey brightening them up. Later that day I was convinced a public telephone was ringing and that nature was talking to me spiritually, I saw everything extremely bright and colourful. It looked like a winter wonderland, and the sky has never looked so beautiful before.
An experience with alcohol all day, and 2 pills, a joint was pleasant… But the alcohol made me do incredibly reckless things like kiss people who weren’t rolling on the cheeks, for some reason people at the pub were feeling my vibe despite making myself look like a complete idiot. Drinking and piracetam is a nono!
Cannabis… All I can say is that when I do piracetam and cannabis, it can be pleasant, but I won’t get as stoned as easily. How can I put it? Before if I where to do cannabis I would be very stoned, but this sort of ‘stoned’ was more of a suffering, mental exhaustion kind, some reason cannabis disagrees with me if I do too much. With the smart drugs, I still get stoned, but it is a very pleasant stone with fewer stupefying effects. I still have a great time don’t get me wrong, and in my honest opinion I preferred this kind of stone then a dirty stone. I also notice when I do smart drugs and cannabis I am less likely to puke due to mental over-exhaustion. I guess it is an autistic thing to be a more affected by cannabis then most people.
Smart Drugs have had an impact on my life, it’s made me extremely intellectually curious, to the point of obsessively researching every nook and cranny in a given subject. Unfortunately, this has had the opposite effects when it comes to Academia (where my time and energy gets spent elsewhere… I become so wrapped up in topics that interest me such as DMT, drugs, psychology, neurochemistry, biology, music, art etc that I don’t seem to have an interest in school so much). This stuff seems to be incredible though, I feel on top of my game, my mood is very positive, I am reading and writing faster then ever before. However, don’t be discouraged when it comes to school, when it came to coursework, I was spending in excess of hours perfecting my sociology coursework and it was my opinion an extremely well presented and focused
Personal Study. It doesn’t help my academic motivation, it helps my outside interest motivation though. When I'm on smart drugs and feeling the best of its effects I become so wrapped up and engaged in my own interests. You might say this is a good thing, it is, but I become so engaged to the point of mania, where any errors I notice or stuff that steps me back in the way of progress I can become irritable. If only my attention was directed at exams would this benefit me, but for me the experience is sending me on an obsessional mania. I am compulsively writing and thinking, and there is very little time to relax, I view video games and T.V as time-wasting leisures and I can be quite content spending weeks looking up knowledge and ignoring your social commitments.
However, when I did have social commitments, I feel a bit more witty, although – it seems like I lose my reckless edge a bit where it comes to flirting with women. I was quite content to be naďve and free spirited before smart drugs to approach girls but now whenever I do I become a lot more self conscious which isn’t too helpful (too much rationalisation and reasoning). It means I become more friendly then sexy.
