My main experience lies with ecstasy, I'd say I've done speed the least amount of times. I'm not a frequent user of chemical drugs, a maximum of 15-20 occassions during a year. I've done cannabis, shrooms, acid, downers, a research chem or two, smartdrugs (beh) and probably a couple i forgot to mention. I'm fairly disciplined and not someone who gets addicted easily. The only thing I've been addicted to really has been coffee(caffeine) which I stopped drinking when I realized the addiction. The way I rank them is; 1. Ecstasy 2. Speed 3. Cocaine (my personal opinion and not some law, others have their personal preferences obviously) They're all great and pleasurable substances you take to feel pretty damn goood unlike say cannabis which makes everything cool, and psychedelics which makes everything pretty amazing (or horrible if you enter the darkside). For cocaine you're probably best off getting about a gram for an evening (NOT TO BE SHARED!). It's the only drug out of the 3 which I'd mix with alcohol if I felt like it. I think you've got the most control on cocaine and you don't look as drugged on the other two which WOULD make it a good substance for clubbing. The problem lies in the fact that you have to keep snortin it which leads to slight paranoia as you enter the toilets every 30-45 minutes + you have to set up the lines and what not, oral use is a waste really. It also damages your nose and leaves it in a bit of a state... I'd much rather prefer doing amphetamines, they last long and you have the option of taking it orally rather than just railing the stuff. It's not as smooth as coke when you snort it, but once you're "up" you don't care about the burn. My preferred method would be to rail first AND then take it orally for a refill so to speak. However, I've the least experience with speed as I tend to distance myself from it as it's definitely the most addictive drug out of the 3 FOR ME. Simply because it's dirty cheap compared to coke, the effects are fairly similar (if not better) and last much longer. A day after the coke leaves me feeling fairly normal, however a day after speed I'm usually fatigued. Health wise i feel that speed might have a bit more of an impact but shouldnt be a problem with very moderate use. Your skin gets some sort of glow or shine after use which is a side effect I don't like too much. If youve ever noticed the skin of old crankheads.. Of course, this goes away after a day or so. The effects keeps you euphoric and optimistic about everything. You can watch a movie, chill out even though your heart is racing. Ecstasy is the cream of the crop in terms of sheer pleasure. I haven't found anything to match the euphoria on ecstasy and probably won't. the peak will last much longer than cocaine but you can't really refill for too long. I can stay in a nice peak for 2 hours, then with refills feel pretty fucking good for 4 more hours not 100% peak but still better than speed and coke rushes. Many people dislike the comedown and day after, but as I'm a moderate user I never have any problems with it. As soon as the effects let off I'm into bed and fast asleep (usually within 10 minutes). I wake up feeling a bit mellow and fatigued with a lost appetite. I think ecstasy, despite being the most euphoric is the least addictive for me. That's just me though, I take great pleasure in a roll and then I remember it for weeks and have no immediate urge to do it again. It makes it much more special when you do it. I actually wish I had some now as I haven't done ecstasy for over 8 months (before that I've done it on maybe over 40 occassions). So that's how "addictive" it is to me but I guess it's time for it again I'm sure it'll blow me away to high heavens. I think all of these drugs are great if you're a person who has strong self discipline and addiction control. If you do get addicted fairly easily then you should definitely stay away from amphetamines, and also coke if you have a lot of money. I wouldn't pass coke up if someone offered it to me but I don't think it's worth going out buying it. You can get more bang for the buck with the other two. You will be on a much more socially acceptable behaviour though and it's not as easily detected as speed or ecstasy. On a good ecstasy roll it's near impossible to convince someone that you've not been taking drugs. There's a lot to say about these drugs but this is just my quick comparison rant. HYPOTHETICALLY If i'd be looking to do something next it would definitely be ecstasy followed byamphetamines, wheter I'm gonna chill out at home and immerse myself or go out on a spree. just remember that the less you do them the better they get.
