    I use it nearly every day and love

    it. It's sort of like ginseng but less intense. Good middle aged guy tonic, anti-stress thing. The price tag is

    the only problem. I get it as a liquid extract and put a dropper-ful into a glass of water along with ginseng.

    Question

    You love it as in ... it's

    worth the investment? How long have you been a user?

    For some reason, I have no drive ... "cleaning my room can

    wait for weeks" type drive. I'm in the gym 4 days out of the week, so it's not 100% laziness. Does it make you

    wanna get productive, Bruce?

    You find genseng intense? I've tried those little bottles of Panax (suppose to be

    the best of the best) ginseng ... and nada. I'm beginning to wonder if at 288lbs, I may need to double my

    dosages.

    I'm missing something, and I'm trying to get my finger on it.

    Thanks!

    Wise words there in your sig file.

    Thanx.

    RE the Maca, if you don't notice anything with the ginseng, maca might not do much for you either. I

    would give it a try and see what happens. It is different from ginseng, but maybe more subtle, so it might not help

    your problem. If you have the energy to work out hard, and from your photo, it looks like you do, the

    procrastination and/or lack of enthusiasm about day to day stuff is probably more mental than physical.

    Ha! I thought that right

    after I posted. Maybe there's more truth to that than I thoughted.

    Thankya Bruce.

    Mobes, setting your goals

    properly is a great way to get "drive". Drive is all about getting excited about your goals, so you should have

    short term goals as well as long term goals and they should be things that will make you feel good when you complete

    them (hence the excitement).

    Sorry ^ that ^ was fairly stream of consciousness. Basically, you need to be able to

    get excited about the reward that achieving your goal will give you. Thats the way it works with the gym (although

    by now it is probably habit for you as well), you have a range of targets ("get that extra solid rep on my bench

    today", to,"add 10 more lbs" or "cut down to X% body fat") and you know that when you accomplish those you will

    feel good. You also know that to not even try will SUCK, so its like having a carrot to chase a stick to beat your

    ass if your not moving

    Good luck with cleaning your room

    You and Bruce are right, but there's something missing. I have set a goal, but it

    all depends on my aging mom. Moving to Italy has become a daily thought, and with the invites, it's getting more

    tempting. Just knowing life over there is totally different and laid back, is worth the move. We'll see.

    And my

    room is still a mess!

    Try a little cabergoline, 500

    micrograms twice a week. It will get you very interested in sex, in most cases. But research it first since it can

    be a powerful drug.

    A milder supplement is ZMA (zince magnesium asparate). The zinc is a catalyst for

    testosterone production within your body. I get "Sequoia" morning wood with this stuff.
