Helps Me Work Harder
Citation:   kratomworker. "Helps Me Work Harder: An Experience with Kratom (exp73730)". Feb 19, 2018.

2 Tbsp oral Kratom (tea)
I have severe ADD, and while researching ADD treatments online, I found an article about kratom, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Turns out, it works, even better than Adderall, so now I drink kratom tea whenever I have a lot of work to do. I've been using it for a couple years now, and it still works. I go on and off of it from time to time to prevent any tolerance from building up, but I haven't seen any withdrawal effects from quitting except for lazyness and loss of focus, which is what I was using it to treat.

I use 2 tablespoons of dried leaf and make tea with it, which is about the same dose I use for coffee and tea.

I haven't had any relaxed, painkilling, or imagination experiences from kratom -- it just makes me focus better and work harder, and is a little bit of an energy boost.
