From: Ian Marshall Newsgroups: alt.rave Subject: 1st time users of E READ THIS Date: Tue, 21 Nov 1995 23:59:31 GMT This is not an encouragment to take E but if you're going to, at least you should have some handy little tips to make your experience more enjoyable and SAFE. Love + Hugs, E! "Our parents found themselves, we are finding each other" 1. Health check your physical condition. MDMA puts serious strain on the body. Before taking it try to be healthy and rested. Your heart,liver and kidneys all have to work harder. Avoid taking MDMA if you are on anti-depressants. Your mental health is important also. If you feel that you are uneasy about taking it and not comfortable with being that open with yourself, and having your image stripped from yuo then don't do it or wait. 2.Situation find a situation you feel comfortable and safe in. large parties or raves seem to be of the favourite places to take, and if you feel as if your bugging out find someone that is SOBER to talk you down or someone with a somewhat level head on them. E is ideal to take with a lover you are sure about. it gives you the ability to explore your relationship and each other.(not sexually). E at home would be ideal in a spacious room where you feel secure and can let yourself go without arousing the neighbours. It is also nice to take E outside in warm weatherand pleasant and familiar surroundings. It is important to feel free to express yourself without inhibition or interruption. 3.Looking After Yourself if you are feeling doubts or anxieties about taking E but still want to take it nonetheless take a small dose, and then wait a little over an hour to take the next bit.(half a dose is quite enough for first time users). Drink water throughout the experience, but avoid going wild and drinking large volumes [both not enough and too much water can be dangerous). Avoid alcohol and other drugs, and if you are DANCING, realise that you may be dangerously overheated even without feeling uncomfortable. LOOK AFTER FRIENDS AND GET THEM TO LOOK AFTER YOU. Taking vitamin C and E may help reduce exhaustion. Get good sleep afterwards. 4.Guide if you are at home choose someone to guide you that you feel comfortable with and have no reason to feel emberassed about showing your feelings to and your failings. 5.Preparations at home make sure that you will not be disturbed, by the phone door etc... Make sure they have comfortable places to sit or lie down. AT HOME AND AT THE RAVE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF FRUIT JUICE AND WATER ON HAND TO DRINK,AND CHEWING GUM OR SOOTHER TO PREVENT JAW CLENCHING. Wear LOOSE, LIGHT CLOTHING but have extra clothes and a downy blanket on hand in case you need to warm up. Bring personal objects that you are fond of----things to handle and look at,or perhaps some photographs of people you are fond of. Have pleasant things to look at, smell and touch.---flowers, essential oils and silks. Just let it happen and go with it. do what your urges tell you. 6.Timing the full effect of MDMA lasts about 3-4 hours, but set aside a good 8 hours to a whole weekend to recoperate and go over what has occurred. this is a learning experience also.
