    woah! ok I don't know about that but I've seen people trying to come off it after long periods of use and it made them insanely tired the whole time, like they were falling asleep standing up!

    If you have a spare hour or so, take a cat nap, but if it's only for about ten or fifteen minutes, it'll just make you more tired.

    Ok so i'm gonna have an absolutely action-packed 4 weeks on holiday. I will probaly get 5-6 hours sleep a night, and sometimes a lot less for 4 whole weeks! Each day would involve hiking, cycling, absailing, kayaking etc etcccc.. so my question for those who are used to this kinda thing (which I'm not! but can't wait anyway ) how do you stay awake??? When I've hardly had any sleep, i just feel really sleepy and dizzy. Besides coffee, is there anything else? Probaly a stupid question but worth a try!
    hell i cant even stay awake during lectures and consultant teaching, let alone during an activity filled month

    suuuuugar!!!!

    drink heaps of water and eat a lot!! build up energy through food... keep eating healthily and everything. if you're hungry, you'll find it even worse trying to put out energy you don't have.

    I use lots of red bull and tea or coffee, and keep my mind occupied on something to stop me just dropping off.

    make a routine, wake up at the same time each day so your body gets used to it, drink loadsa coke, hehe, this seems to have the same effect as vodka and coke on me but most ppl find it keeps them awake, caffeine, chocolate, if ur gonna b doing all that hiking then it'll probs make you tired but make sure you have time to relax as well
