Sleep. Who needs it?
    #4516969 - 08/10/05 03:53 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Who needs sleep? Apparently not myself. Ever since I began this new job in a factory where I'm working 12 hour shifts, I sleep an average of 2-3 hours per night. I've always been a night person, so naturally I have a tendency to stay up late and sleep in longer. This became a problem for me because my job starts at 5:00am. As I said, I don't really sleep. How do I get through the day you ask? I simply rely completely on ephedrine and caffeine pills. Ah yes, what would I do without them? Yesterday I consumed somewhere around 800 mg of caffeine while I was at work. Maybe it's all the caffeine that is preventing me from sleeping at night. That seems unlikely to me though, considering I am usually falling asleep at work shortly after I have taken the caffeine.

I'm healthy though. For now anyway. Maybe three hours of sleep is enough for me.. The shit we go through for money is amazing. Living lives that go against everything which is important to us, including our physical well being.

fuck man, what you're doing is dangerous! you're basically binging on speed (only in a different form - ephedrine). Ephedrine isn't good for you and it IS addictive. Seriously consider quitting that shit and try to get more sleep man :thumbup: , it only seems like you don't need it because of all the 'keep me awake' pills you eat  :crazy:

Maybe you should go to the docter. They can perscrib you stuff like ambien. Also some OTC sleep aid help, I usually take about 6 mg melatonin if im havin trouble sleepin and it puts me right out!!! Good luck.

Sleep, dude.

Just because you feel like superman now, doesn't mean it won't catch up to you. I did the same thing, minus ephedrine, for months on end and now that I'm doing training also at 5am (but boring as fucking hell) it's starting to take it's toll.

I've stopped taking any stimulants at all asides from what may naturally occur in a healthy diet if that's anything, sleep at least 5 hours a night, and take a 2 hour nap during the day after work. I feel absofuckinglutely fantastic. No caffiene, proper sleep, excersize, and proper diets are key. It's not hard at all. It'd been about 3 weeks since I've started that and not only do I feel great, but my weight's doing awesome and I've gained butt loads of muscle too.

There's absolutely nothing positive from what you're doing, asides from having a bit more time at night. Once you cut the crap and get things in order, you can still work mad OT but have natural energy. Your body will take care of you, don't put so much into it.

Thanks for the advice guys. I have been into bodybuilding and nutrition for a while now, so I know all about ephedrine. I am actually using it to shed some bodyfat, but it just so happens I need it to make it through the day right now. Ephedrine is actually less taxing on your body the more you use it so my daily use isn't really a huge concern.

I've just always been really weird when it comes to sleeping. I envy people who can fall asleep any time they want. I have to get on a set schedule if I hope to sleep 8 hours a night, and it only takes one day of sleeping in to ruin my sleep cycles. I've been on trazodone to help me sleep but that was a few years ago and I don't want to get back into prescription sleep aids. I have some GABA coming in the mail though. I've used it in the past and had good results with it so hopefully this can help get me back on track.
