The harder it is to get, the better it usually works. There’s a prescription only drug called Modafinil. To purchase modafinil you must get a prescription from your local and kindly Doctor or you must jump through some hoops to order modafinil online from an overseas pharmacy.
Modafinil is in a class of drug called nootropics, commonly known as “smart drugs”. There are about a million drugs classified as nootropics. Well, I’ll be damned if I’m going to try all of them, or even 10 of them.
I want the best and only the best. The best is not available on Amazon for one-click purchasing. The best takes a little bit of work to get. The best is hard to get for a reason: the better it works, the more limited it is. The shittier it is, the more available it is. That’s why you can get protein powder at every corner store but you can barely find pro-hormones anywhere.
I went straight for the best, Modafinil, and I was not disappointed.
I discovered modafinil through an underground entrepreneur’s forum. The guys on the forum loved it and went bananas over it. They compared it to NZT-48 from the movie Limitless. I read each and every word, I read each and every source, and then I went straight to google to find some of this magic.
And one day that magic showed up.
30 pills at 200 mg apiece. A one month supply from my kindly Dr. to test out. Some say you should chop a pill in half and take 100 mg for your first bite. Caution isn’t my style and I popped the first one around 8am.
Modafinil, it is said, is the real life NZT-48 because of how it helps you focus.
And, baby, they weren’t lying then they said it helps you focus. The focus on modafinil is breathtaking. It is like being on a train, going through a tunnel. There is no way to go but forward and there are no other distractions. Modafinil is the ultimate tunnel vision.
Other than the extreme focus on modafinil, there are a couple other benefits which I love.
Modafinil was developed as a drug to treat narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is a disease where people fall asleep randomly during the day, modafinil makes it so that they can stay awake. Of all the benefits of modafinil, staying awake is my favorite. You see, I often have to take a nap during the day. I can’t help it. I get tired and I fall asleep. I absolutely hate having to take a nap during the day, it feels like failure. While on modafinil there is no need to take a nap, there is no yawning, it is flat out impossible to nap on modafinil.
My typical work day is 8-5. Never before in my entire life have I been able to focus for so long, day after day, and never become tired or worn out. Having no need for a nap, having no need to rest, having no need to do anything other than focus on my task(s) at hand. I have now run out of modafinil. I have been out for several days. Yesterday, I was forced, beyond my will, and this is very hard for me to admit…..excuse me while I hold back tears…….I was forced to take a nap from 3-5pm. It was awful. 3-5pm is now prime ass-kicking time for me and to nap through it is absolute failure.
Years ago, running my first successful business, I would work from 9am-1pm and come 1pm I was beat. I was ready for a rest, or lunch, or whatever. I would usually have a break from 1pm-5pm or so when business would pick back up. Afternoon used to be the worst time to get anything done, now afternoon work is just as good to me as morning work. The prolonged focus is just unreal.
One of the other side effects of modafinil (and I do drink a ton of coffee, too) is decreased appetite. I am no stranger to fasting through the day but on modafinil I simply am not hungry during the day, period. I do not eat anything before 5pm. I am just not hungry and on the days I do eat, my focus and productivity decrease. I am as convinced as I ever was that eating SLOWS YOU DOWN and you should only eat when you are ready to slow down. Digestion takes away too much energy and all the fatasses in your local office should be proof enough that lunch is disastrous.
Since I am not trying to lose weight I will eat a lot after 5pm. Since I am a lean and muscular 200 lbs, give or take 1 lb each day, and I have maintained this weight while fasting through the day and eating after 5pm.
A typical day for me will be superfocus work from between 8am-5pm. Somewhere during the day I will swallow a whole glass of egg whites. Usually I will head to the gym at 5pm. I will have a badass workout. I will then come home and eat my first meal.
My first meal is almost always 7-8 scrambled eggs with cheese cooked in butter and 3 toasted english muffins liberally covered in butter. I will eat whatever I want after that and usually try to get in another glass of egg whites. My strength has not gone down on this routine, in fact, I was able to deadlift 535 lbs just the other day and 2 days ago I did partial deadlifts from the knees and went up to 7 plates per side, that’s 675 heavy ass lbs.
Last week is when I had my last pill. Since then I have been off and there are no withdrawal symptoms, there are no nasty side effects, there is just back to normal. There have been a few articles along the lines of “Modafinil Can Be Habit Forming” and here is my answer to that: No shit it can be habit forming. It’s habit forming because it works and it makes you better. Any serious man who wants to be better will do everything in his power to be better. Kicking ass is habit forming.
There is truly one nasty side effect of coming off of modafinil: You go back to normal. And normal is pretty shitty compared to mighty.
Official verdict: Modafinil A+
