Ecstasy is an entactogenic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine families. MDMA induces euphoria, a sense of intimacy with others, and diminished anxiety and depression. MDMA was first synthesized in 1912 by Merck chemist Anton Köllisch. At the time, Merck was interested in developing substances that stopped abnormal bleeding.
Ecstasy produces a very strong euphoric high and a very pleasing feeling...it is known as the happy drug for a good reason. Ecstasy is considered a "club drug." The drug lasts for 4-6 hours, and the onset to the peak takes about an hour until it is fully kicked in. The best way I can describe the high it produces is an awake high, like caffeine give you, with the feeling of a euphoric shield over your body and depending on the pill it can produce a "trippy" feeling.
There are an endless amount of different pills out there. Even though it is highly illegal, people manufacture the pills in their own homes. People make these pills with MDMA and a variety of different drugs are put into the pills. Some of the different types of drugs that are put into the pills include cocaine, heroin, amphetamines (speed like meth), caffeine, and many other chemicals.
There is no telling what you will get with random pills. If you have the pills, before you take them you can look at ecstasydata.org or pillreports.com. Many of the manufacturers post their pills on these websites and what they put in them, and there are also reviews on the pills from people who have taken them. On my birthday I took two pills...one had meth and one had heroin in them...I should have looked it up before I ate them because it wasn't that good of a time.
The manufacturers make these pills there own by putting a design on the pill using a pill press. These designs are used to entice the users of the pills. I have had pills with logos of Mercedes Benz, Jewish Stars, Michael Jordan symbols, sports teams, different types of cars, animals like monkeys and birds, Buddahs, Superman and Batman signs, and a variety of random symbols like hearts. I have also had some pills that were not your typical looking pill, like in star shapes, diamond shapes, and even cut outs of Transformer heads in the shape of helmets.
Ecstasy is a culture on its own. In this underground world, raves are a very common way of partying. Usually at raves everyone is on E and having a great time. There is usually techno or electronic music playing loud with strobes and different types of lights. The lights and music make rolling very enjoyable and great to watch. Personally, I can pop some pills and sit in front of my iTunes or Xbox 360 visualizer all night and have a really great night. Ecstasy heightens your emotions and feelings; this includes your sense of touch, the way you experience music, and lights are viewed in a very trippy way. There are no bad feelings when you are on X, only happy feelings.
Personally, I have seen people have bad reactions to E. Do not do X if you think you cannot handle it. I have never had any bad experiences from the drug. I have taken hundreds of pills and to me each pill holds a different package for the night. Each pill gives different effects, some just make you happy and some can make you trip like it is a hallucinogen. Hallucinations are common though, especially when taking more than one. Do not take more than one for your first time, you do not know how you will react to it and even then each pill is different so you do not know if a different pill will effect you differently. Mixing different rolls is not always the best idea, unless you know what is in them.
Ecstasy is definitely my drug of choice. It gives me a feeling that I cannot replicate with any other drug. It is a pure happy feeling and it is hard for me to not enjoy the feeling. It feels like I have an invisible shield over my body that makes feel amazing. That shield is pure euphoria.
People can argue that heroin gives you a really good euphoric feeling, but the fact that E is an upper and keeps you awake to enjoy the moment makes it the best in my opinion. E is not a downer, but the comedown can be a downer. When you are peaking on the pill, there is nothing better. Because I have taken so many, I know how to harness the energy it gives me for my own complete satisfaction. I actually come up with the best ideas on it because it makes you feel so good.
I do not suggest that anyone does ecstasy or any drug. There is no telling how you will react to it. It can be very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing. Most of the dangers are from people overheating and dehydrating, especially while dancing. The most important thing you can do is drink a lot of water, but not too much; about a pint of water an hour is a good amount. A good tip is to take Vitamin C tablets, which aids your body running well and will help not have as bad of a comedown; Vitamin Water Power-C (the pink one) is great to drink because it will keep you hydrated and has a lot of Vitamin C.
