Modafinil is its own branch of the smart drug category tree

My experience

Apps vs Operating System

Installing Apps

  • Learning a second language.
  • Acquiring a new career skillset.
  • Reading books.
  • Studying philosophy.
  • Getting coaching.
  • Writing daily.
  • Or getting into entrepreneurship, pickup, or social dynamics.

Upgrading the Operating System

  • A meditation practice.
  • Optimizing your diet, brain training with Dual N-back (which is a very precise metaphor because it’s literally like upgrading the RAM of your mind).
  • Practicing memory systems.
  • Heart rate variability training.
  • Getting outside of your comfort zone.
  • Doing aerobic exercise 90 minutes a week to stimulate neuroplasticity.
  • Habituating your heuristic reactions.
  • Getting outside of your comfort zone.
  • Practicing arbitrary discipline.
  • Taking Nootropics that feed your brain the nutrients it needs.
  • Quitting your addictions or managing your vices.

My favorite Modafinil stack is

  • Coffee — Modafinil takes a while to kick in, so if I’m having a Modafinil day I begin it with coffee. I don’t find the two overwhelming.
  • L-Theanine — Modafinil can be intense and L-Theanine takes the edge off. Modafinil is also not particularly great for creativity, which L-Theanine makes up for. So I really like L-Theanine stacked with Modafinil.
  • NicotineThe creativity smart drug and my favorite Modafinil cofactor. Here’s why.

What about tolerance and addiction…

Some other negatives of Modafinil

  • My spelling sucks while I’m on Modafinil, it increases my typing speed but not necessarily the accuracy. My fourth-grade teacher Mrs. Woods, would be ashamed.
  • One thing I dislike about it is that it makes me sweat, which is a little weird especially if I’m just sitting there on my computer not doing something physically excruciating… Which is a little weird.
