Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

If you use a drug to deal with anxiety after humans have spent 1000s of ****ing years dealing with it with training techniques that you're a ****ing slave. STep your game up and stop getting down with for profit drug pushers. I've dealt with anxiety on levels most havn't dealt with, if you take a drug then you're a ***** made hominid. Neuroplasticity is the key for mental disease.

Rewire your brain for better emotional habits or be a slave.....





The fact that this society is so keen on making you a drug dependent ape sickens me and you need to step your mental game up.

just ignore people that argue based on principle. principles by nature are so ingrained there is no amount of logic or evidence that will override it.

The Trooper has become a top pro while drinking copious amounts of coffee. He doesn't take any other drugs whatsoever. So don't underestimate the power of caffeine.

Coffee, weed, repeat as needed. Maybe throw in a candy bar just in case.

Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

Choline bitrate 700mg x3 a day (pure powder form)
l theanine 200mg x2 a day on empty stomach (pure powder form)
B vitamin complex (No magnesium sterite)
loose leaf green tea 5 -8 cups per day

This combination will help greatly with anxiety and cognitive function. I don't know if its a good idea to take these supplements if you are taking prescription drugs especially SSRI's, its my understanding those drugs block serotonin receptors? You will have to do your own research in this regard. I also take niacin (vitamin B3, the flush type) I don't know how beneficial it really is, for me it didn't have any real noticeable effects but others swear by it so I take it anyway, 500mg x3 a day (you will have to build a tolerance to get to this amount otherwise you will be going bright red every time you take it for a couple of hours lol. The l theanine was the most remarkable and immediate relief for me.

Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

Modafinil is officially prescribed for narcolepsy and is not amphetamine based (like adderal & ritalin). Officially in the US you need a prescription for modafinil, although you can buy adrafinil from nootropic sites online which is essentially the same thing. When you take adrafinil your liver synthesizes it down into modafinil. If you do adrafinil regularly it can cause liver damage though so better just to get modafinil if you can.

I would say adderall is far better for grinding. Adderall drastically increases solitary focus whereas modafinil is more about persevering through hardships that would be more difficult in sobriety. I do not find grinding in itself difficult so when I'm doing modafinil it seems almost like a waste of the drug.

Modafinil is more a mood enhancer and less of a feeling of being on edge like adderall.

Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

Be careful with your brains, you only get one. Tinkering around with drugs you buy online or on the black market is a bad idea. The best grinders I've known did hardly any drugs and kept in really good physical shape. Put nutritious food and plenty of water into your body, sleep enough, meditate etc. There are SO many things you can be doing better for your body besides relying on potentially dangerous substances!

This is a great post and really gets to the truth of the matter.

But fyp:

Its all just about money. This is such a huge industry they make you think that you need it and most of these people are victims of Pharm co's greed. Do you relise the people at the top of these companies are laughing all the way to the bank?

The same of glasses, do you think early humans had a need for glasses to see better? We went millions of years without it when it was kill or be killed, why do we need it now? The more people wear it the more our natural vision declines leading to an evolutionary vicious cycle. The reason you need glasses now is because your stupid ancestor got sold a stupid invention.

these companies are just out to make money ldo they couldn't care less about you so they sell you something you dont need

Do you just like, get high and post assertions that you have no idea about? Cause you're super wrong.

I agree with him. I take a small dose of xanax maybe 3 times a month to fall asleep. I know if I lived a healthier lifestyle I wouldn't ever have to take it. So in that sense I find using drugs for anxiety a cop out.

I know it's impossible to know other peoples state of minds. if you've had a horrible experience or something in the past that causes it, then maybe that can't be corrected very easily.

BUT if have it from working a **** job, surfing the internet all day, constantly stimulating your brain with no sorts of stress relief, then that's on you. I'm guessing 95%+ of people who take anxiety meds are over stimulated. I sure as hell don't have any anxiety when I fish a river all day and sleep in a cabin with no electronics or tv. My eyes be dosing off at 8pm. At home, here I am at 2am typing away. Moral of story, lifestyle changes can be much more effective.

Has anyone made the joke that they like to take Rohypnol after very bad sessions?

If not, I’d like to make that joke now.

Thank you.

Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

I take a combination of RGPU-95 C-Phenylpiracetam, and PPAP-HCL. I purchase them both from Newmind. I take them together with about 7 work-out supplements from Bodybuilding.com, and Liquid Iron/Liquid Calcium. After working out, I feel perfectly focused and am able to do things that require intense focus and calm. Playing poker feels very good after I take these things, and work out, and I only play after I've gotten a good work-out, in order to always play at my best and to not get burnt out by physical inactivity of a sedentary poker lifestyle.

Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

Take it easy bro! These overly reactive responses aren’t giving anyone confidence in your methods...

The thread has really been all about HOW to induce positive neuroplasticity for poker. A more relevant response would be to post how you achieved your “neuroplasticity” if it’s been so effective. The blanket statements also reflect a lack of understanding about how drugs/substances impact & create change in various brain environments.

Regardless, good topic to bring up. Here’s a decent intro article with some links to additional info for those not familiar with the concept.

Re: Best drug/drugs to use for grinding? (legally)

If you're looking to be more alert, just drink a lot of water, get regular exercise and eat healthier foods. There's really no magic pill in a bottle, although I can't blame you since you've been brainwashed by the trillion dollar pharmaceutical industry.

why not take 50mg of Diphenhydramine (benadryl) instead? Works better, it's sold over the counter, not a CDS, and not physically additive.

+1

I just found out that DPH (Benadryl) makes Rest Leg Syndrome worse, so I wouldn't recommend it. Even if you only occasionally get RLS it makes the symptoms much worse.
