First time ecstasy use
I’m going to try ecstasy soon and I’m psyched about it! I’m mainly wondering where I should try it. I’ve been going to a lot of bonfires lately so that is a possibility. Maybe a music festival even? Surprisingly most of my friends just stick to pot and alcohol so I can’t really get a group of people together to join me but maybe I could find one or two others. I’m not really looking for anything in particular but any advice/suggestions?

go to a rave/concert. you’ll have a much better time if you’re surrounded with other people that are also rolling, because you’ll have an urge to be extremely sociable and you’ll feel more “connected” with them if you’re both rolling. the music is also reallllyyyyy helpful because you’re going to want to be constantly moving, and dancing is super fun, especially with heavy bass drops. the music will fill up your entire body and you’ll just feel it. the lights will also completely encompass you.
with me, i have to do something with my hands constantly. at spencer’s you can purchase a 100 piece glow stick pack for like $12 and it comes with the pieces to make a glowstick ball that spins. i’m sure you could get them somewhere else, though. i have one of these every time i go to a rave.
make sure you have plenty of water because if not, you’ll get incredibly dehydrated. juice also helps keep you hydrated, and vitamin c makes it more intense. use molly in moderation because if not, your body will have depleted serotonin and you will become depressed and anxious. rolling should be a seldom thing. 5-HTP is a vitamin that is made from one of the ingredients in molly that comes from a tree in africa. it will help keep your mood up and your body boosted when coming down.
@eyesopen, I gave the example of coffee unjustifiable, so I take it back because you are right about that. I should have given an example of something abstract like a smile which makes a person happy. This is real for me, in contrast with drugs.
I do not get your last sentence, please explain. I am not making any connection with legalicity and authencity, I think you misunderstood what I said. What I say is based on personal experiences as well as from peers as well as from research I have read about the subject.
Thanks so much for all the advice, it’ll definitely be used! After consideration, I think I’m going to find a rave and a few cool people to go with. Although I have never been to a rave as well so it may be overwhelming? But I don’t mind, I love dancing and electronic music of all sorts. Idk I just think I’d feel really comfortable.
Also, I should have made it clear in this post that when I said I was looking for advice and suggestions, I did not mean anything against trying it. The decision has already been made and is a well informed one. Thank you for the concern, but I am fully aware of these things. @prittii
@splashartist, I am actually going to follow@namastevegas‘ advice and test it at dancesafe.org to make sure it’s good. My first time with lucy was a huge let down because we ended up with some bad shit.
@cheeky, I disagree with your availability. I know the people who make it and it’s so widely available (at least from their perspective) that it isn’t worth competing. There are huge labs now that make it… Small timers can’t compete.
MDMA pure is easier to find than ever, so I’m told – directly from the source.
@michellejoy, I would advise you to think twice about that decision. That shit is made by scumbags and sometimes a batch goes terribly wrong. A few people around where I live died from a bad batch last year. Think before you do that shit it’s terrible for you.
i am not sure how familiar you are with the ways that mdma works in your mind but you should consider doing some research also about the after effects…
erowid is an excellent place to start such research: http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/mdma/
another thing i would like to point out to you is to prepare yourself for the psychological after effects… some people experience a gloomy, melancholic feeling for some time after the use and if you are prone to depression you might want to consider taking some steps towards minimizing the negative effects… try to get some 5-htp, its a legal food supplement and can help you to ease the serotonine related impact after taking mdma.
(quote on erowid about 5-htp: “….there is another reason for MDMA users to take 5-HTP. MDMA may cause serotonin depletion, and taking 5-HTP in the days AFTER MDMA use may help re-build serotonin levels and may reduce the post-MDMA depression some people experience. Many users report that taking 5-HTP after Ecstasy use noticeably reduces the depression they experience in the days after….” )
i am not telling you that you surely will feel this effects but i think its better to know whats could be causing this feelings rather tham thinking it is a “real” depression you are experiencing… its just temporary and its a biochemical process that is gonna be over after some time… dont let yourself trick you into believing that it is anything else…
having said all this i also want to add that a good experience with mdma can be life-changing and can show you how happy you can feel which lasts much longer than the actual effects of the drug. there is even some research and therapy being done with this substance and it can have a high therapeutical value.
just dont make the mistake to do it more often than it can be useful, if you do it too often the negative effects will be more prevalent than the desired effects could be…
i wish you all the best, be safe, enjoy and know what you will be doing!
easier than ever ? Most folks on this site are in there early 20′s. During the late 80′s it was absolutely rampant, and completely legal.
Data is pointing that you are correct… kind of shocked actually… maybe it just hasn’t hit us yet in Florida.
I agree with the people saying to go to a rave/concert/festival. The experience will be so much better! Be with friends and let do not do too much at once. Dependent of the pills, I would say start with half a pill and wait at least 1 tot 2 hours before taking more (if you have 180mg pills, take half at most). Do not expect too much from it, just let it come as it comes. Only take it when you are in a positive mood though, if you feel stressed and or anxious about taking it (you do not have to be, do not worry), then I would advise you to pass this time.
Good luck and enjoy!
@sebasitan, thanks a lot! I have read through erowid and I have read about the after effects as well. I actually just went out and bought some 5-HTP the other day when I stumbled across people talking about it so I’m set with that. It’ll help for me to keep in mind that the after-gloom happens to almost everyone and is just how it works.
@cheeky, Most of the people who make it are on the west coast – they get the reagents directly from china, and some get the already-made directly from the southern border…
Its really cheap now too – everyone I’ve heard from is really pissed :) They used to be pretty well off, but now they find it hard to even be worth doing with all the risks involved.
Rumor is that there are professors & larger companies making it at an industrial scale. They have been CONFIRMED in Europe to be doing this – entire warehouses dedicated to the production, how they get away with it is… well… who knows :P
@cheeky, The feelings are not real! I took it in a rave full of people without personality. While I was in the drug effect, suddenly everybody was awesome, but when the drug effect was gone, they were still people without personality, essence, objective… Empty people!
@michellejoy, I’ve done ecstasy twice. My first time was at a friends house and it was great. I was with my step brother, another girl, and another guy. I loved the expirience, but I didn’t like some parts of it. It made me super thirsty but I felt like if I took a drink, I’d drown! My clothes were incredibly irritating too, be sure to wear something comfy (: ..everything in the whole world was fascinating. The grass was so soft and I just wanted to roll around in it! (lol) everything anybody said to me felt like a compliment, and none of us could stop smiling. We told each other our most personal secrets, some of the stories were terrible, things that would normally make you want to cry, but instead of having a negative response to what we had to say it was more like “I’m glad you can trust me enough to tell me that (which was a confidence boost, it’s great to feel trusted) and I’ll always be here for you!” it was very loving. The second time was actually at a bonfire. The fire was so bright and everything everyone would say to me was so loud, everything was just so interesting! We listened to scatman John while rolling and it gave me this crazy uplifting happy feeling. All night music was blasting and every song just made me feel like I was in anothe world (: it’s a great time, just don’t over use the drug, it can be harmful. Be with people when you do it too!
