    I have been pretty mentally exausted lately and it sucks. it might have to do with the sleeping pills I've been talking but i don't know. all the coffee in the world is not helping either. adderal used to work but it was addicting and crashing sucked. any good alternatives?

    I think you should begin snorting massive amounts of cocaine.

    A lower dose of the sleeping pill, and 20-25 minutes of cardio in the morning.

    A good and REAL exercise program will help you Mario. I don't mean some dumbbells and jogging in place. Maybe try Insanity again? :dontknow:

    Real exercise isn't easy. It's the results and the better feeling you get that make it worth it. :thumbup2:

    figure out what your sleep "cycle" is. Go to bed, and allow yourself to wake naturally, If you wake up after 3.5 hours then you should sleep for 7 hours, if you wake up after 2.5 hours your should sleep for 5. You don't want to wake up in the middle of REM sleep
