help, ADHD, boost plz 

Hi everyone,

I suspect I have ADHD and waiting for a diagnosis. In the mean time, I manage by coffee to get some focus, of course.

My question is:
Do you peeps have any substance that works to calm oneself?

Details in following toot

Any advice ?

Case in point:
I've had an awesome day, I'm running (in my head) really fast and it's hard to manage. I'm supposed to go to bed in 2h in order to keep my sleep schedule right (very important).
The only substance that helps me calm down while still being functional is alcohol. Not ideal, I'd want to avoid falling in a alcoholic pattern

@jack Stimulant of choice as a possibility. Strong tea, coffee, what have you. If it's ADHD, your problem isn't calming down - it's having enough energy to stop. You know your reactions to those best, but it might be a counterintuitive venue that you haven't considered.

If stimulants don't do it for you, hot milk and honey are classics for a reason, as are hot showers after which one goes to bed. You can try to use temperature as a relaxant rather than a substance.
