Are you in liti or corp? B4 or other?

Would recommend you quit practice or move to a smaller firm.

Do you take any health supplements to cope?

Not the OP but Xanax does help but not good for long term

I don't dare to take prescription drugs.

Sad to say though, I picked up smoking to de-stress and create opportunities to step out of the office.

Not OP. But yeah smoking is another one. Just that I live with my parents so a bit difficult.
I know people who take caffeine pills.
Apparently you can do a shareholders’ agreement in half the time required with the caffeine pills.

Caffeine pills make your heart race. May not be good. I tried it in law school, felt more jittery. Some swear by it though.

Eh wah. Is it! At my b4 firm, I had heard when we reach 6 PQE (ie called to the Bar in middle of 2014) we would get $12,X00 only (before bonus)... And we are supposed to be lockstep and equivalent pay to another of the B4... Ugh... Hope my info is wrong then. But if so, it means that the step up from 5pqe in both these two firms is large (confirmed that standard track 5 pqe SA at these two firms gets $11,X00 before bonus)

I took modafinil while in law school and found myself to be in this heightened sense of concentration. But it left me with a dry mouth and headache once the effect wore off.
