There is no use in having a thread like this. It is one of the few topics like abortion where no one will ever change their minds. So stop it.

Repeats are good, they expose the OCD twits that need to get off the internet once in awhile.

Worth a try, provided you use moderate doses and use ones with relatively low addictive potential and risk of adverse side effects like methylphenidate and controlled dextroamphetamine/amphetamine mixtures. And as with all psychiatric medications, follow up with the patient and adjust or alter the medication according to its effects.

Because, of course, we're all smart enough here to not lump all stimulant drugs together with meth.

"In the UK 3% of children have a diagnosis of ADHD, with half of them continuing to have the condition in adult life."

Sounds like only 1.5% of children actually have it, and the other 1.5% have permissive parents who let their kids run roughshod over them while drinking soda and eating candy bars.

There's the truth of it.

Yes, it's a real thing. Yes, the meds help those of us who actually have it. Yes, it's really annoying when people look down on us as weak willed. It's not a matter of will. The other day I was putting in my contacts and thought of a text I should send to someone about plans, and I got halfway to the door (through which my phone lay) with only one contact lens in. That's what ADHD does to you as an adult, a thought occurs and you act on it, or another one does and you forget what you were doing in the first place.

When I found out that people with ADD are given stimulants to relax them, I realized that by drinking so much coffee, right up until I go to bed, I am self medicating.

In my unmedicated younger years I was not a criminal, but I was quite likely to get bored with Uni and go rockclimbing on my own without telling anyone where I was. Oh and without ropes.
So,
umm
still probably good I take my meds. Might not change crime stats but it still saves the police having to investigate my suspicious death.

The main difference between them (apart from the extra methyl group) is that one is usually made in a lab, and the other is usually made in a shed. You're better off taking the medical-grade speed instead of the redneck-grade speed, but in terms of chemistry, they're nearly identical.
