-When drinking, it cancels out annoying side effects like memory loss, sleepiness and the inability to hold a coherent talk with a cab driver.
-It’s cheap. One Adderall costs less than a drink.
-It can take you from sleepy to “Where the hell is the after party? Let’s go to that warehouse and chain smoke with those DJ bros.”
-Appetite loss means that you’re less likely to turn to Pop Tarts for comfort.
-It lasts a long time. Unlike coke, you won’t be fishing for more after a quick come-down.
-It gives you more fight in a crowd and more pep pep pep in your small talk.
-Sudden, intent, even obsessive ability to focus means you can pump out huge projects while everyone else is still asleep.
-Adderall has become more “culturally relevant” than Ritalin.
-Sometimes you get the “Adderall bitchies,” where you suddenly feel snobbish and “over things” or into kicking someone out of your house.
-If you smoke, prepare to see your smoking habit explode. It must turn on some Nicotine-loving receptors or something.
-Long-lasting alertness means that accidentally taking too much will destroy your sleep schedule for days.
-Prescription pills can make you seem like a “wanna-be” drug user.
-It makes you think you can drink and drink and drink and drink.
-It’s like your period – whenever you’re upset, someone will just blame it on the Adderall.
