    OK, color me naive.

    I'm meeting up with friends in Chicago on Memorial Day weekend. I have never done ecstasy but I know that it's central to their plans while they are out partying.

    SO, that being said...

    I'm not looking to do it. But I want to know what it does to you, and how long it lasts, and if you think it does damage. More than anything, I'd like to know if I'm going to feel like the odd man out while I'm sipping on drinks instead of flooding my brain with serotonin and grabbing everything within a foot of my penis.

    OR, tell me I'm a prude and that I can do it, and that my constitution should be amended.

    Fast Facts about Ecstacy

    I personally don't think anything about it looks fun. Dehydration, body temp increases, risk of heat exhaustion or stroke, nausea, faintness, chills, sleeplessness, etc.

    I think ecstasy in moderation is ok. When I first tried it I threw up, but after that everything I did felt amazing. Even peeing felt amazing! I danced for hours and the boundries I had were released. I didn't feel sexual it was about feeling sensual. The after effect was feeling alittle blue and tired. I think it helped me become the person I am today. Very few people experince that type of joy. Now if your friends have done it I'm sure they are pretty fun guys. If you need more info let me know.

    I've done it a few times. Ecxtasy 101

    Its a drug..a chemical. First off, you have to trust your source. I've heard of X with weird shit in it. And you have to be comfortable knowing that you are, in fact, causing temporary stress to your body.

    Its a drug that can enhance your mind and make for a memorable experience.It can spark some really good ways of thinking that you will never forget. It is a temporary unreal experience (thats what drugs are supposed to do) but if you find yourself liking it too much, and wanting to do more and more you are in for big trouble.

    You would need to plan for it. Rest a day before and a few days after. Drink plenty of water while under the influence. Certain little things can make you feel miserable......so...don't laugh....make sure your house is clean and you have goodies in the fridge so that when you get home, you can chill.

    Be careful about your surrounding.....your wallet.....have a plan to get home if you get separated from your friends

    BTW.......drug sex for me doesn't work. You don't need to feel guilty or regretful about having sex with the wrong person at the wrong time. While the physical sensation might be nice, the mental sensation afterwards can ruin everything. As one guy said, I felt sensual, not sexual.

    The best thing to do while under the influence is to dance....dance your ass off. If the crowd and the vibe is right, you will feel deliciously happy all night and a memory to last a lifetime.

    BTW....Ecstacy is not meth. Never did meth. Never want too. Some things are simply not worth the risk.

    danisnotstr8 said I want to know what it does to you,

    One of the things it can do to you is get you arrested. It is a schedule I controlled substance, meaning that in many states possession is a felony offense.
    Something to keep in mind.

    Hey danisnotstr8,

    you were saying, "I'm not looking to do it. But I want to know what it does to you, and how long it lasts, and if you think it does damage."

    ...so we'll tell you what we found out recently. Bill's nephew is about 17 now and his girlfriend did this high with a another friend, the friend is fine but Bill's nephew's girlfriend didn't make it. She's gone. What happened? We don't know, except that with anything like that there are risks.


    We feel bad telling you this, but think you should know.

    KissingPro and Solkrock are pretty right on in their descriptions.

    If you take it, follow up the next day or two with a supplement called "5HTP". It will help your body replace the serotonin it used up, and reduce the "hang over" or the 'Blue Monday' depressed feeling a lot of people get.

    If you don't take any, and are just drinking, you might have a little trouble relating to the ones taking it. I've been just drinking around guys on ecstasy, and I've done it and been around guys just drinking. Not sure how to explain it, but your just in a different place than the people not doing whatever drug you're doing (alcohol is a drug, after all).

    The long term effects of occasional moderate use are minimal. Frequent regular use is probably a different matter. Everything in moderation.

    Don't forget: you live in a world of 7 BILLION people. You might consider different friends that you're more in tune with.

    Relationships need not be forced.

    I second meninlove's post on this. This is one of the ones I have not and would not try. From reading a lot about it after having some friends offer it to me, it did not pass my personal criteria of what I consider 'safe enough'.

    However, I hung out with my friends when they did it and it was fine. It wasn't like a hallucinogen type of thing where people tend to become withdrawn to their own worlds. Personally, I find people who are super-drunk more difficult to hang out with (when I'm sober, obviously it's a different story when I'm also drunk) than when my friends do Ecstasy.

    If you really want to do it, just do it. Just be mindful of who you're getting it from, and do a little research. There are websites you can go to where people across the country post pills that are out at the moment. I can't think of the sites now but I'm sure you can google it.

    Like anything in this world, moderation is key. If you feel like you're getting in over your head, or you know you have a problem controlling yourself, then you probably shouldn't do it. All the other posters who have listed its side effects are correct, but some of the side effects listed only occur in extreme cases (overdoses, not keeping yourself hydrated, etc), or with pills that are "dirty". Like any other drug, there are risks involved, physical and legal, but if you think you can handle the responsibility of these risks, then go for it. It truly is an experience like no other.

    But like I said, do the research, and consider the consequences before you make you're decision.

    University of Adelaide researchers have found that ecstasy taken on a few occasions could cause long-term brain damage from severe damage to brain cells, with the potential to cause future memory loss or psychological problems..

    Maybe your friends will be demented and drooling in a few years, maybe not..This article may just be hysteria put out by the government or some researcher wanting to be published. Maybe in the future his prediction will be proven correct. Maybe it will be proven false... only time will tell..only you can make the correct decision about your future...peer pressure is the leading cause of substance abuse in the young

    You needn't feel awkward if you choose not to take it. If I were your friends, I would be grateful to have a sober (non-drugged) person there to help out if someone has a bad experience with the x.

    I'm going to echo the comment on 5HTP, take it a half-hour before you take the pill and a half hour after you feel yourself coming back to reality. It does wonders.

    For me x has always given me like a child-like sexuality (more sensual than sexual), I just want to touch, hug everyone around me. I've made out with people on it, but honestly never really wanted to go farther than that at least while I was on it. Best to wait until the shit leaves your system should you want to have sex.

    As a party drug, provided you stay well-hydrated and youre not drinking or on anything else, it's unbeatable. You will dance your ass off and half a hell of a good time. Conversations and your interactions with your friends will become more open and relaxed, it creates a very soothing yet intense and energetic vibe. If it's your first time taking it, don't take more than one pill regardless of what your friends say. You'll need to know how your body reacts to a smaller dose before taking anymore.

    Best of luck to you buddy!

    Hmm, I don't buy this study, especially because there are many studies like this one, and just as many studies that prove otherwise or state that results are unclear due to several factors. Here's an actual study you might want to read: http://drugs.homeoffice.gov.uk/publication-search/acmd/mdma-report

    Like I said, do your research, and see for yourself.

    It is a schedule I drug just like heroin. Drug schedules are made by the Federal Government so it is probably a federal felony as well. Any lawyers reading this thread?
    A drug felony can keep you from getting into some health professions or getting a teachers certificate. I'm sure some companies would turn you down for a job after doing a background check.

    Hi guys,

    Thank you all so much for your thoughts on this...

    I'm not going to do it. I can't believe I even questioned this. I just finished a masters degree, and I already *have* a teacher's certificate. Too much risk, and I'm already fun without it...

    I am glad I NEVER tried drugs of any kind. I know others who have...just not for me. If you need a good stimulant take some caffeine and YOHIMBE BARK extract...you will feel great and it's all natural!!

    Side effects?.... A big boner!!
