    rokd got a reaction from Youdontknowme in Competing ....   
    I've been to 2 competitions in the past - the first one was 10 years ago, when I just finished studying and before I had my first job (so I had plenty of time and could give 100% focus to the cause).
    I always had a "fitness/bodybuilding" life-style and dedicate most of my free time to training and nutrition.
    I think I might compete again - not really aiming to win anything, just as an interesting experience and also to set some goal.
    I noticed that I can't do anything half-heartedly - either I do it 100% or don't do it at all. And fitness/BB is a thing that this attitude is very helpful (at least I think so).

    Hello,
    I'm starting a thread to keep a log of my progress and to keep me on track. I've always been into fitness and training in general, but a couple of years ago, I fell into drug addiction, but managed to get out.
    Even before that, I have been trainig since I was about 18 years old. I'm now 34 and want to stay on track. I think, even if fitness "way of life", including gear, is another addiction on its own, it's still 100x better than being addicted to drugs.
    Anyway, I've been to 2 competitions, but that was almost 10 years ago.
    Currently I weigh 78-80kg (178cm) and I'm probably close to my best condition so far, with low BF percentage.
    My weak part are legs, because I had a knee injury about a year ago and still haven't fully recovered, so I'm very cautios with training legs.

    I'll post some photos a little later.

    I found a few from the first competition.
    How time flies - that was in 2010, 10 years ago. My god, I was just a kid, I feel like a grandpa now 
    I remember that I was too white on stage, cause I used too litle of the color. The lights on stage were so bright that I could barely look at the audience.

  5. Thanks

    Hehe, ok. Here are the legs.
    The first two are from about a month ago, the last one is quite older. 
    I'm afraid to train them as hard as before, because I still remember the agony of not being able to walk.

    Just two small competitions - both of them were in Slovenia (where I live). You probably wouldn't know them.
    The first one was organized by our fitness and bodybuilding organization IBFF in Koper and the second was in Medvode.
    But still, there were quite a lot of competitors from all over europe.
    I might compete again, but probably not so soon - maybe in a couple of years.
    I'm still putting my life together and repaying debts from the addiction period.
    Edit: I have to say, that I was never so much into doing competitions - I just love training and taking care of nutrition by itself and as a lifestyle. Competing is just another interesting experience for me. I'll probably never make any money with this

    Here are some that I tried (don't know if all are classified as nootropic):
    Piracetam and other -racetams (aniracetam, oxiracetam, etc): Didn't really notice any effect. Maybe I didn't use them long enough.
    Phenibut: I use it regularly. Great to counteract some of the side effects of stimulants (for example caffeine or ephedrine) and also improves sleep onset time for me.
    Modafinil: I take it ocasionally, but I don't like the long half life. If I take it more than 2 days in a row, I get insomnia.
    Ritalin: This one was one of my favourites, but I can't get it anymore. Improved concentration at work.
    Tianeptine (sulphate): Worked great for me, but is too expensive and could also cause addiction.
    Noopept: Didn't really notice any effects...
    Kratom: I don't know if this goes under "nootropic" category, but for me, it gives a nice boost in cognition and mood.
    Kava kava extract: The effects are very subtle, but are noticeable after some time of continuous use - for me, this was less anxiety and better sleep
    Hordenine & PEA combination: I used this before training. It gave me a great boost - probably due to MAO inhibition and dopamine.

    What about ephedrine? I take a small dose of around 15mg with some caffeine and it works very nice for me.

    I agree completely!
    I'm working on this with my psychotherapist. A "normal" person probably couldn't believe, how hard it is for me, to put aside my daily routine (training, meal prep, etc.) or just make one little exception. The need for control of everything is an addiction of itself.
    When I got clean, it was like I had immediately switched from drugs back to fitness. That's the only thing that I knew from before and I have had this kind of lifestyle since my late teens.
    The biggest irony is that I don't even do this professionally and don't make a cent of it.
    I work as a computer programmer - sitting behind a screen for 8 hours a day.

    I think addictive personalities and compulsive behaviours go hand in hand with BB, PL and other similar sports. It's almost like taking control of your body. The prep, the food, the drugs, the routine, the progress - it's all competing against and controlling yourself, and to be successful you almost have to be compulsive. I think this is often where dysmorphia comes in too.

    Well, I try not to act smart about what others should or shouldnt do, because everyone is different.
    For me, the only option at that time was going to an institution / rehab, where I had no contacts with the outside world, only visits one time per week.
    I constantly had a cocktail of different drugs in me. Anything that I could get, I would put into myself. The only thing that I didn't do was injecting, but excluding that, I still tryed almost every drug, just other routes of administration.
    The first time, when I got out, I soon had a relapse, so I had to repeat everything.
    After the second time, I had another relapse, but handled it without rehab and I started attending NA meetings.
    That really helped me in the beginning, because I was depressed and had a whole lot of debt, that I still haven't payed.
    Now, I don't go to NA meetings that often - maybe once a week, but I also have a psychotherapist every week.
    I'm trying to cope with my obsessive personality.
    I think that the most important thing (for me at least) is that I regularly take some time for myself and think about what I want in the long run and to make at least some approximate plans, so that when the life becomes too demanding, I still have something to stick to. The most damaging for me was my "all or nothing" mentality and saying to myself that everything is f**ked, so I don't care if it gets f**ked some more.
