I’ve been taking stimulants for ADHD1 for nine years.
I was hesitant to go on them. It’s funny, because at the time I was smoking half a pack of cigarettes and a non-trivial amount of weed every day. I’d get drunk on the weekends, was sometimes eating McDonalds twice a day, and could easily drink a 2L of Coke in 24 hours.
But, “I don’t want any chemicals fucking with my brain.”
