I'm sure this has been asked multiple times before, I DO NOT HAVE ADHD. I usually take adderall to make up for my stupid procrastination. I'm tired of procrastinating but when I don't take adderall, I literally have no energy or motivation to do anything. I really think I'm addicted to adderall and I want to feel like this all time, and when I'm on it, I feel so great but just after and when I don't take it I just keep thinking about how life would be better while on it. I weightlift everyday, I do cardio, I'm a basketball player, and I drink lots of water, I eat somewhat healthy and I do smoke weed everyday, but only before I sleep. I use to take adderall for school related stuff but now just anything I need to get done I feel like I need an adderall to help me get through it. Is there anyway to improve my daily life without feeling like *** all the time???? Thanks guys.

If I was you I would try to get some form of medical opinion about the way I feel.

I think you have other things going on in your brain and you are self medicating with adderall. You need to understand that if you are taking adderall and you don't need it, you are seriously effing up your brain chemistry. Truly, it is nothing to play around with.

I would see a doctor and ask to be evaluated for mood changes. Just be honest, admit how you're feeling and take it from there.

I would think weed isn't great for brain chemistry either, IMHO

Smoking weed and taking adderall is counterproductive.

See a doctor about feeling tired, listless or demotivated. Even if it's not ADHD, there might be other underlying reasons to make you feel this way, e.g. a deficiency of some sort, depression, allergies, depression, etc.

Get professional help with your addiction.

Smoking weed everyday will take away your motivation. Doesn't matter when you smoke it.
It used to make me feel like everything's alright, just the way it is... I can just step over the stuff on my floor, because I'm laid-back guy.

It's true, Adderall does make a person feel good. it's prescribed for more things than just ADD. also, Narcolepsy, extreme fatigue disorder, major depression, some doctors will still write it for weight loss, it increases focus, alertness, euphoria, sense of well being, pleasing tactile sensation (parasthesia ). you could just be depressed or fatigued and the Adderall masks it.
