Is it really true?The Practice: "Drop the "shoulds." Why? One time I watched a three-year-old at her birthday party. Her friends were there from preschool, and she received lots of presents. The cake came out, she admired the pink frosting rose at its center, and everyone sang. One of the moms cut pieces and without thinking sliced right through the rose - a disaster for this little girl. "I shoulda had the rose!" she yelled. "I shoulda shoulda SHOULDA had the rose!" Nothing could calm her down, not even pushing the two pieces of cake together to look like a whole rose.

Source: Image by the author Nootropics—for example, caffeine—are compounds that, if used correctly, are safe and can enhance your cognitive performance and mood. You can develop tolerance to some nootropics if you don’t cycle them. It’s even possible to develop an addiction to some. If you have a history of substance abuse, I would suggest you start only with the less potent ones. For example, N-acetylcysteine can help against addictions. A criterion for a compound to be a nootropic is that the compound should have no risk of addiction if used right. This is not true for certain compounds that some regard as nootropics. Examples of compounds that are risky, especially if you have a history of substance abuse, are Modafinil, Phenibut, caffeine, and Tianepeptine. “The dose makes the poison” —Paracelsus In the initial phase of getting to know the effects of a compound on your body and mind, you should experiment very … [Read more...] about The Risks of Nootropic Use
