Hi, this is my first post, ive read a few other threads and im hoping to get some advice from what seems like a very well informed and intelligent comunity.
Ive always had a problem with concentration/motivation, my attention shifts very easily. This
problem is amplified when it comes to tasks which are undesirable. I am doing a commerce
degree, unfortunatley I find much of the topic matter particularly boring. I find myself unable
to pay attention in lectures and I procrastinate when it comes to study. When I do study, I usually
get distracted immediatley or find that often I have read whole pages and taken in none to very
little of the content. I have not been to a lecture for about 5 weeks because they are effectively
of no use to me, exams are in one month, needless to say I need to catch up to pass and I put a high
value on passing.
I currently take the following daily.
DMAE - 500 mg
Ginkgo Biloba - 250mg
Last year was the only year I ever did well in school and I put that down largely to DMAE which gave me
some sense of focus and drive. However, the drug no longer has any significant effect, i have become immune over time.
I realise that everyone could use more focus and motivation, its just that I lack these things in the extreme
. I think I have a lot of the symptoms of ADD although I am not hyperactive and generally docile. Infact I
am skeptical as to whether ADD actually exists because i think everyone has the symptoms of ADD to an extent.
I have put a lot of research into motivation and looked for inspiration
from a number of sources, nothing has helped me long term and nothing has helped me focus. If drugs can help then I am willing to take them even at some compromise to health because at the moment and as usual I feel that my consciousness has only slight control over my mind and that I am extremely unproductive and far from my potential due to this.
What are the best nootropics for increasing motivation and or focus?
I am an 18 year old male by the way and from experience I am quite sensetive to drugs, any help would be appreciated.
