Heh. Very tough-dude/manly sounding but very much the wrong attitude for striving for an athletic bod and life. Don't mean to sound preachy, but it's true.
6 hours of sleep should be your minimum.
You can get six at least. We're all busy, but we make time for things that are important to us.
We all miss ephedrine, but if you were using it a lot, it was probably covering up a lot of problems in your diet and lifestyle.
You'll need to work, plan and think to get that level of energy sans ephedrine.
Try to get to bed earlier. If it's hard to sleep, try having some turkey or something high in tryptophan that will make you a bit groggy.
Overall diet, are you getting enough vitamins/minerals? Fruit? Protein?
It'll take some time, especially if you were on eph. for a while, but you'll get it back with some lifestyle changes.
