Has anyone here tried NAC? I just got myself a bottle today and hoping it may be a nice complement with mindfulness, CBT and cognitive therapy. Any experiences with NAC helping limerence, obsessive thoughts and rummiation, anxiety etc?
LO M probably around 40, married, coworker in diff country
Met him once, so...
NC since 11/2020, broke it twice

As its microdosing, it is supposed to be imperceptible, so I dont know if thats working. I felt slightly better, but very slightly... Also, and based on neurosparkle too, today I had my first NAC , 2 pills alltogether 1500mg. All the racing toughts have suddenly gone. Weird, first time in months since I met my last LO really I have never felt so peaceful. I feel like myself, no anxiety, no intrusive thoughts, sadness or any comorbidties of this terrible cindition. On a cognintive level I was more focused and aware. Whenever the thought of my LO came in as usual today, it vansihed quickly and very naturally.... Weird!! Before my brain was in total fog!! Fingers crossed... Been al so trying to meditate altough that proves very hard , no focus ....
Can you update us about your NAC usage. Do you still take it. Does it work for you? Thanks
I don't know what NAC is but sounds as though it could be used for an over-thinker in general (whether limerent or not).
Had never heard of neurosparkle so checked it out. Now I'm not opposed to neuroscience though I did find the first article I read, in part, contradicted itself. So apparently we are programmed to want to seek new partners every 2-4 years. Hence needing someone to "make our lives intense". I have to laugh, being married to the same person for a long time can definitely make ones life intense (tongue in cheek), so then why need to find someone new to do it? And what about those limerent cases that have lasted for longer than 4 years? Which incidentally blows the 2-4 years theory out if the water.
Moral of the story? Don't believe everything you read regarding limerence - everyone wants to be an expert on it... especially those who have experienced it... Why? Probably because it taps into a bit of heroticism (made up word but I kind of like it)... heroicalness - the state of being heroic.
That's why I enjoy this forum, you can take any angle on the subject without being tied to one specific area or profession.
this forum has a ton of different articles, etc. So take what resonates for you and leave what doesn't.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is used by the body to build antioxidants. Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that protect and repair cells from damage. You can get NAC as a supplement or a prescription drug. I think it’s a precursor to glutathione. I take it before I go out if I know I’m going to drink alcohol. Definitely helps soften the hangover. I have heard before it’s good for limerence but I think you have to take a big dose…..
