If Wired.com readers are any indication, performance-enhancing drugs
are moving from the sports field into the office.
We're not talking steroids; we're talking brain steroids.
Surprisingly large numbers of people appear to be using brain-
enhancing drugs to work harder, longer and better. They're popping
pills normally prescribed for narcolepsy or attention-deficit disorder
to improve their performance at work and school.
"We aren't the teen clubbers popping uppers to get through a hard day
running a cash register after binge drinking," wrote a Ph.D. research
scientist who regularly takes a wakefulness drug called Provigil,
normally prescribed for narcolepsy. "We are responsible humans."
I can't compete with this doping shit!:-(
