I've been doing a little online research on how to improve my memory ~I keep forgetting bits and pieces after a nite of drinking and partying~ and I stumbled on nootropics among other drugs.

I also found tons of other info (self hypnosis, yoga and other drugs and herbs) on how to improve your brain capacity and creativity. I'm currently going through some of these materials I printed out .

I would like to hear your views on this alleged mind boosters and if anyone of you has had any experience on this.

a long but interesting read

Supposedly if you have back problems, even if they are minor, they can sometimes be related to a bad memory. Check out Upper Cervical Adjustments.

kaboi: All those options (except pos. yoga):

strike me as being the finest snake oil money can buy. Yoga might work if you can't remember stuff because you need to relax. I'm afriad the only solution to this problem:

Is not to drink or party so much.

There may be tricks and tips that work but searching the internet will only bring up get rich quick schemes for other people

Try and sneak into the University of Massachusetts as there advice is handy:

Try these resources (I've had a nose around and they seem sensible):
www.thememorypage.net
www.geocities.com/darkcorner4all/Memory.html

www.mindtools.com/memory.html
www.psychology4all.com/FiveMemoryTechniques.htm
www.mochasofa.ca/health/program/articles/01june18a.asp
www.willamette.edu/cla/ler/memory.htm

No quick fixes I'm afraid.

I'd much rather go the route of wetworks myself. You know, Johnny Pnemonic style. Drugs mess with too much other stuff.

Nice stuff Emps, very handy indeed!!

I've spoken to a few people (non-medics) about my problem, and suprisingly some of them have had similar phases esp when around 23-25 yrs. I cant help wondering that it could be age related partyiiing is really intense when you're 22--25.

Anyway I dont think I would start popping pills that are supposed to make you twice smarter and remember everything I would much rather take up something like yoga or self hypnosis. Anyone tried self-hypnosis with success, feel free to share the experience.
