So, I'm going to be up all night tonight doing a project because I saved it until the last minute. I have to go to school tomorrow because I've already missed too many days. I'm not looking forward to tomorrow, but what has to be done has to be done. My question is any tips on staying awake all day tomorrow? I know caffeine helps, but anything else? Too much caffeine always makes my anxiety shoot through the roof.

Unfortunately I used my last bit of meth last night. I need real suggestions.

cocaine/meth/speed/5 hour energy times h/e many hours yeh need to stay up.

Well I kind of want to stay up until at least 8 or 9 tomorrow so I don't completely **** up my sleep schedule and I've been up since 1 today. So around 31-32 hours. Any tips that aren't substances of some sort? Like what to do mentally.

16 liters of Coca Cola?

Every couple hours go and stand outside in the cold for a couple minutes.

It's kinda hard for a while, but don;t go to sleep tonight. After a while you'll get in some strange haze and you can go on for another 24 hrs easily, as long as you don't have to think or speak or look alive.

...Metaphysical meth?

To stay up over long periods, I always minimize the caffeine intake and resort to keeping my mind busy to keep me awake.

The best way to summarize caffeine is that it gives you energy, but only if you already have energy. Using it to stay up should only be done in small doses.

I'm a general insomniac, so trust me.

Keep hydrated, try to drink more water than anything else.

Sugar buzz, sugar crash.

Good luck.

Drugs aside, stay in brightly lit areas.

Also, I noticed you're from Jersey. Go for a jog without a coat. 20 degree weather + light physical exercise will keep you awake for hours.

I've done it before in the summer, but I didn't have to go to school. I have to be at least minimally functional in school tomorrow.

I use chewing gum, it keeps me from zoning out. Coupled with sugar and caffeine, you'll transcend human limits of awareness. Promise.

I've actually been up for 36 hours now doing a project, and will likely be up all night tonight to. projects suck

drink coffee and redbull. the only way

Think of your dad giving your mailman a reacharound while your mom tapes it and faps. Keep having mental images like these, and you won't sleep for a year.
#22
dont think about the sleep that your not getting or the dreams that your not having.
#23
Eating helps keep you awake a little bit
Remember that sugar and caffeine will make you crash at some point, so if you're doing those... keep it steady and don't allow yourself any time without sugar or caffeine

Try to get at least one hour of sleep. It helps out a tremendous amount. Or go do jumping jacks naked in the cold. That usually works for me.

One hour of sleep is worse than no sleep, IMO.
If you're desperate for sleep, get a quick half hour nap during class or something. That should be enough to jolt you wide awake for a while, and I can say this from personal experience. It's easier to stay awake when it's bright outside, so don't be worried when you're borderline passing out at 5 AM because its dark.

Last time I pulled an all nighter, I was up for 39 or so hours. I got up at 2 PM one day, stayed up the entire next day (with a half an hour nap at one point), and went to bed sometime late at night. I wasn't passing out at 9 pm the next day, I was actually wide awake but bored when I went back to sleep. It was weird.

Last time I did it was during the summer and I stayed up 36 hours straight relatively easily, I'm just worried about being in school all day. If we're watching a movie in any classes I'll be out in about 5 seconds.

Drink water.

Not too bad, I went to sleep at 2am, got up at 4am, just two hours later to go to a concert, got home at 2am the next day and got up at 6am for the first day of football practice, that was rough..

Energy Drinks and coffee, bro. It also helps to have a little nap, even if its like half an hour. It will make you feel really refreshed when you wake up.
