One thing to try is Guarana extract. Comes in pill format, get it at a place like GNC.

You have to take it earlier because it takes awhile to kick in. You don't really feel 'boosted' like caffiene, you barely notice anything, except it may keep you up longer than normal.

But don't over do it. Please.

Get up early in the morning and exercise. Run around the block or whatever. It will energize you greatly. Smack yourself and throw cold water over your face.

Hadry har harr. Not my fault you have poor reading comprehension ability. Is it laziness or arrogance that leads you to only read and respond to the sections of posts you disagree with or see within them some minute technical error largely irrelevant to the overall point? I've complemented you many times too, my mistake I guess.

Guess you are 1 of those 10000 people since you're convincing yourself that there are no negative side effects to the use of cocaine.. Keep snorting bro!
Obviously you don't know anything about making purified chemical extracts of any kind, or you would know that almost every product you consume that contains any concentration of a substance that does not occur naturally at the same levels was subject to some form of solvent, most likely highly toxic, that is then completely evaporated with no measurable trace left behind. The vitamins in breakfast cereal were likely extracted with some form of high grade solvent. I would do some research, my bet is at least one product you have had in your mouth was dissolved in toluene or butane at some point during its production haha Acetone extraction is harmless, and the only thing you got correct in the coca purification process. I used to work with lab chemicals, went to school for chemistry, and also researched and experimented with chemical extractions in college.

PS - Sodium BI-carbonate is baking soda, and is harmless, unless it's used to form cocaine freebase, which is CRACK, and not at all cocaine powder (coca leaf extract) any more. My comments definitely don't apply to crack-cocaine, it has completely different properties.

PPS - Chances are your grandparents or great grandparents grew up consuming cocaine without even knowing it, in their medicine as children. Do some research before you start regurgitating 75-year-old propaganda. Stop "cop-sucking".

Wake up three hours earlier and go to bed three hours earlier. Work on music (or do whatever else it is that you really care about and want to be maximally alert for) at the start of the day instead of the end.

Acetone is used but not nail polish remover grade. The chemist grade solvent used is 99% pure acetone which evaporates quickly and leaves nothing but water moisture and a faint odor behind, both of which will also be gone after a few days exposed to open air.

The gasoline thing is a myth. Kerosene is sometimes used in the first stage of extraction because it's cheaper and easier to acquire than acetone, but it's high-purity laboratory-grade kerosene, not K-1 from your local store. And it too evaporates without a trace in the open air. This grade of kerosene is so pure that burning it produces no carbon residue at all, the carbon exhaust from exothermic reaction of homogeneous hydrocarbon chains is 99.99% oxidized into CO2 and the hydrogen into H2O.

As for dealers cutting it, there was a real anonymous journalist who went around the world looking to buy small personal-use amounts of various drugs and had them tested for purity. Cocaine was the least cut of all the drugs, with only roughly 1-in-25 acquisitions being tampered with. It was discovered that what most people think is cut is really simply unrefined raw extract containing other natural plant alkaloid derivatives of the cocaine molecule that cause similar but less often euphoric effects to the desired molecule, including mucous membrane irritation (pure cocaine does not cause this), "jitters" and paranoia, more of a hangover (in the same way that the tannin molecules in wine are natural but cause headaches and sore muscles). He found that dealers who cut generally were street hustling the seasonal tourists and had no regular customers.

EDIT - also there are images of facial deformities used in anti-drug propaganda that are purported to be caused by cocaine abuse. Pictures of people with a missing nasal septum or missing palette (roof of their mouth) are shown to scare the public. In fact these pictures can all be traced back to the source, usually they are photos of cancer patients after having a tumor removed and some are simply people with birth defects. Cocaine doesn't have "gasoline in it that burns through your face". The worst it can do in some people who have bad circulation is constrict the capillaries in their mucous membranes to the point where some of the surface tissue dies from lack of oxygen/nutrition. But it requires a perfect storm of very bad circulation and massive overuse.

Ok you are obviously the expert here on this subject. I'm just going by what I've seen and know from my own experiences and peoples around me.

I actually know a dude that had his nose ****ed up like that from cocaine, and I know more than 10 people in my direct surroundings that are addicted or were addicted to cocaine (not crack cocaine). Besides all that, I find it odd that someone gives cocaine as an advice to stay awake just to make music... But whatever man, it's all good.

I never advocated it, I simply said it's too bad it's not legal. And you find it odd that somebody would advocate the drug responsible for pretty much fueling chart topping artists making it possible to perform grueling tour and PR schedules 20 hours a day 6 days a week, from the 70s through the early 90s?

No you probably don't know a dude like that whose nose was messed up from cocaine. He probably had a chronic sinus infection which can do way more damage. You really are telling me you know somebody who is missing the roof of their mouth or has one big gaping nostril?! Doubt it.

And your friends weren't addicted to cocaine, they didn't go through withdrawals if they didn't have it. They were probably teenagers without careers or a life and they simply liked cocaine a lot to overcome boredom and became psychologically dependent on it for happiness, the same way people become dependent on money, social media, television, or recording equipment for happiness.

Most personal accounts, as in "I know somebody who" stories, are largely influenced by the same bias because the information from those stories always originates after the subject of the story has gone through the "recovery process", which entails six months to a year of being effectively retrained in rhetoric and self-esteem, by organizations which are authorized and regulated by law enforcement. By the time the person is released they have been trained to psychologically punish themselves for seeking any form of hedonistic pleasure; they only allow themselves to feel pleasure without shame if it meets approval from an approved social group.

And to get an unbiased account from somebody with personal experience they have to be willing to admit their use, which is very unlikely given the consequences legally and financially of being discovered. You would be surprised how many millions of people use substances their entire lives without any detriment to their lives. I would say, due to the allowance of observation afforded by my wide berth in social standing among various very demographically diverse groups, it's enough to make those negative instances a fairly insignificant statistic.

If you look into the founding of substance prohibition, especially some later quotes and interviews of the main players in setting up campaigns and public awareness attitudes, you'll find some interesting stuff. One of the founders of the DEA I think it was had stated outright that the entire idea of addiction as a reason that drugs are nothing but bad/negative was an outright lie; and that the illegality based on supposed severity was organized by racial statistics. It was actually federal police who renamed cannabis to "marijuana" to convince the public it came with illegal immigrants from Mexico.

I'm not saying cocaine is harmless and everybody should try it. All I'm saying is that it's been presented as nothing but bad and far more dangerous and harmful than it actually is in reality. It's not even close to as dangerous as alcohol as far as the intoxication causing injury or the addiction potential. Not everybody abuses drugs, but prohibition groups and government agencies make sure all the public sees as credible are the worst cases of abuse. If they did that with alcohol nobody would touch a drop of the stuff. Look how many people quit smoking after they started publishing those rare cases where people were completely deformed by a tobacco related disease. Yes that can happen, and 500,000 or so people die every year from smoking related causes, but that's not a very large statistic compared to the number of people who actually smoke. Half my family were heavy users of unfiltered tobacco and lived well into their 80s without contracting a single smoking related illness except maybe bad breath hahaha

Again, not advocating everybody start smoking, I'm simply not advocating prohibition. I think if people find a certain substance improves their lives, they shouldn't be prohibited from it because of case statistics and overtly biased research.

Now I believe it because you live in the Netherlands haha Like I said, some people have poor capillary circulation in their mucous membranes, and cocaine is a vaso-constrictor. Heavy use without a break can cause necrosis due to cells not receiving oxygen. It takes abusive amounts and only happens in people with certain traits. But it also only happens on surface tissue, when it does happen, so perforating the septum is about as severe as it can get; and takes decades to occur in most cases. I was talking about photos of people with the roof of their mouth missing, or their entire septum obliterated labeled as cocaine abuse effects when really they are post-surgery cancer patients or people with deformities.

I used to ride "shotgun" in a state trooper's car here in the US when I was a teenager working as a park ranger. He used to try and tell me not to smoke weed because "you could die from it, even the first time you smoke it." We also had police come into our school, actually one of them was my Tae-Kwon-Do instructor so I knew him. They used to lie through their teeth to us, especially about weed, desperately trying to say anything to get us never to try it because it would lead to other drugs. When in reality I never was interested in drugs as a teenager until I had my first drink hahaha

Really I'm not saying drugs are good. I'm not saying they're bad either. I'm saying prohibition is bad in the USA because it's literally every American's first inkling of mistrust towards the government and law enforcement. How can they promise independence and self-determination if they claim that this thing that sometimes makes a person's life better is everybody's worst enemy? It's no different than alcohol prohibition in the 1920s, it fosters a bad attitude and environment for public confidence in "the system". And if you look at my first post, that's all I'm saying, is that it's too bad cocaine is illegal because for some people that aren't prone to negative side-effects, it could actually be a way to occasionally improve certain situations in their lives.

To clarify, those were two separate points as psykotx's post is both very Americentric and assumes all research and/or governmental publications are disinformation.

As I've told you before, I don't believe any nation has a monopoly on "conspiratorial wingnuts, religious nutjobs, intractable imbeciles, simpleminded goobers, xenophobic bigots, rapacious capitalists, or generally speaking - ethically/morally challenged deplorables."

Because the USA has pretty much written the book on drug policy internationally, in order to "protect" itself from the drug trade. There are only two or three countries that have decriminalized anything but cannabis. I've looked into it because I have chronic nerve pain and it's virtually impossible to get medication in the US during the last decade or so. They'll write a script and everything seems fine then they "pull the rug out". I don't recommend getting hurt in the US, unless you like being treated like a junkie every time your scans and test expire.

This is exactly what I was going to suggest. I have always found your best ideas and most creative, energetic things happen in the morning. If you are trying to force it after work when you are mentally and physically spent, you are at a disadvantage before you begin. I used to be into working out a lot. That will definitely help your stamina and focus if you don't already do it.

Again, the people who get up early to get their workout done will tell you that it's the best time of day, although hard to get used to initially.
