The Stimulants Forum FAQ
« on: August 15, 2004, 10:58:00 PM »
This is a digest where I will collect links to posts which contain answers to the most frequently asked questions in this forum.  It is always a good idea to read the rest of the posts in the threads from which the posts below come from to learn as much as possible.

Please do check back from time to time, as this FAQ will be continuously updated with new material as I find it. Also, if you know of a post you believe would fit in this listing, then please PM me about that so that this FAQ becomes as complete as possible.
