How did you brahs recover from the Jack3d ban?

Brb pre-workout of the Egyptian sun gods, capable of turning any man into a driven, self-motivated Silverback gorilla. Now we have to settle for the jittery "dirty buzz" of caffeine and other non-dopaminergic, more-questionable stimulants. How long it take you to get over?
