Amphetamine is a valid drug for treating ADHD and lots of other diseases. It works and because of that it has side effects. Generally speaking if there are no side effects, there are no effects. Some of these side effects can be seen as pleasant by some people so they abuse it. There's nothing wrong with the drug but with the people abusing it.

Kids abuse them all the time. You go to any college in the country and you will find a mass amount of kids who use them to study. Kids sell them. Kids snort them. They are slung around big time during finals.

I agree that there isn't much wrong with the drug if not abused. That said, the more you use them daily the less they will work. The more you will seem to need. Abusing them isn't always on purpose. They can be terribly addicting.

Caffeine is a fairly safe drug, but you can abuse it. Too much of it isn't very good for you. You go a year with having a couple cups of coffee each day and you will feel awkward on a morning where you don't.

For someone who gets hammered every weekend and basically doesn't know what a vegetable is, I'm very concious when it comes to medicine. If I have a cough, I'll never take pills or a cough bottle cause all that shit lowers your immune system and makes your body reliant on it to recover. The same goes for mental based pills like those ones. One you become dependant on something, you have to adjust and change to come off of it and that's when addiction sets in.

I'm the same, if I'm ever ill, I never take any pills, unless I have got an absolutely terrible head ache.

About your brother having panic attacks. I had a panic attack once and literally thought I was going to drop dead from a fatal heart attack. Scary as hell.

Remember when Chael said Bones had a big secret that he was going to expose and most people said they'd rather Chael kept it to himself? How is this any different? I feel bad for Mike if this is the truth, we don't need to know this stuff. If it isn't the truth then I feel bad aswell because this thread is slanderous towards him.

Surprisingly few. I've seen straight A students start to crack under the pressure and try it. First a little, then more and more, until they can't focus on anything without them. It can happen in a matter of months.

The only difference between a pharmacist and a drug dealer is a pharmacist pays taxes and went to school for 8+ years.

I try to avoid them with headaches, but if it's THAT bad you'd shoot up some heroine to get rid of it haha.

Yeah he even lost his job cause he can't work in public places. All of it's cause of weed aswell. Dude was smoking heavy for about 14 years since he was 9 and that shit eventually gets to you. About 10 minutes ago I watched a Dave Chapelle video where he "broke free from the illuminati". I'm thinking "You mean the video where he shows that he's half pschzo by now?".

In Ireland, there is a ridiculous suicide rate for people around exams. You're almost lucky you get the pills handed to you because people are that weak minded, they'll actually top themselves over it. Ridiculous, I was getting drunk the night before my exams and had a legit risk of failing, while these people would struggle to get under a B and were swinging from the barn ceiling. Makes you wonder how fragile people are.

And El Bresk, it's actually good when shit like this comes up. Say for example someone on this thread was thinking about taking them, balls to the wall thinking they were tick tacs. Maybe the discussion will stick in their minds and they will remember it, and the reason the discussion came up is because a bunch of guys who like Mike Goldberg were discussing the shit he was suffering from.

I used to take speed (amphetamines) all the time when I was younger, all my mates did when we were out raving.

For most it's ok, but a few get dependent on the stuff and find it hard to get off.

I've never heard of anybody being addicted to the legal pills though. He must have been popping them like they were going out of fashion.

Probs got them off Rogan anyways

Regardless, IMO. The effects of adderall are easy to find, I seriously question the judgement of anybody taking pills that they aren't fully aware of.

If it's untrue then it's bad publicity for him and if it's true then it was a bad friend that leaked it (and still bad publicity).
