What dose are you doing and where did you get it from?
Oh and don't worry about poor decisions, we all make them!
The mood lift for me correlated with the enjoyment I get at being able to function at a higher level mentally (NERD), from reviews I've seen some people do get a boost out of it, some don't or perhaps find it too subtle. I will say this though, when you're having a gold day already it definitely amplifies that feeling :D
Glad its working for you with regards to memory recall, I'd say that's definitely the most immediately noticeable benefit of Noopept. Give it a bit more time to see if you notice a difference with mood, if not then perhaps add Aniracetam or Coluracetam to it as these both have antidepressant/mood boosting qualities that, if they work for you, should kick in within half an hour of taking them! Again this effect isn't massively in your face like Noopept and is subtle but pleasantly noticeable.
If you're interested in a racetam type substance I'd send an email to a nootropic vendor asking for a small sample as you're interested in the potential results - most will be happy to do so. That way if it doesn't work for you straight away then you know it's not for you and haven't wasted any dolla.
happy in the haze of a drunken hour
