Now it was time to try without the pills. The next day I left them at home so I wouldn't be able to take one, no matter how bad the day may have gotten.
The second day passed and it went okay, but I felt like I was slower getting out news stories and I felt there was too much going on in my head to remember all of the details.
There might be something in these pills after all…
To see more of the differences, I took pills for a few more days and then on the last day of Computex went cold-turkey, and the difference was noticeable. I found it hard to concentrate and had to make sure I wrote down everything because I was forgetting important bits to write into the news posts. It seems these pills can make a difference when the pressure is on.
This is just one test, however, so to get a different angle I tested them with a gaming session; playing Team Fortress 2 against my pals back home.
On the first night, I munched down a pill and found I was going good for about four hours before I started to feel tired and needed a rest. So far, so good...
The next night without them, I felt tired much quicker than the night before. About two and a half hours in I found myself needing more breaks to get a drink and rest for a while in an effort to get my concentration back. Obviously there is something to be said for these super-vitamin pills.
