  repeated oral 1,4-Butanediol (daily)


I started taking 1,4B only when using meth because it makes me hornier than words can explain. However, the euphoric feeling carries on with one for a few hours later to where I'd almost feel just as high if not higher than the shit (meth). I began taking it just for 'the hell of it' on certain occasions e.g. Going to work, after I'd wake up, and so on. Before I knew it I NEEDED it to go to work, NEEDED it to have sex at all. I wasn't even able to get erect without it and even when I did, every time, and I do mean every time I'd be having sex we would have to stop because of the 'inability' to perform lol. Also any bit of exertion at all would cause me to sweat so much I'd have to stop doing whatever it was I was doing. Always felt dehydrated and if ever I woke up and knew I had no 14b, I literally would not get out of bed until I knew that there was some way I could get an OZ for the day.

Unfortunately I cannot say that I am any better now with this and am still consuming the same amounts that I have been for almost a year now. I often cross over which is ultimately like a minor overdose where I am throwing up even if there's nothing coming out, dry heaving. My stomach makes all kinds of noises and often will start hurting for no reason at all. I have terrible bowel problems and feel like I'm trapped in this unending unforgiving cycle until it kills me :(

I strongly recomend to take it only on occasions and not often at all.
