Just wanted to mention something to newcomers that has probably been mentioned before but I think its important for those of us who are new and naive. Dont give up Kava if you find it doesnt do the trick for you. Experiment with Heavy/heady varieties because they both have profoundly different effects. For me Heady has been amazing and heavy doesn't really work well, almost giving me more anxiety. So don't give up, because it may be something that really helps you actually if you find what works.
