I had been at an electronic show all evening with a friend drinking beer and asking all the raver kids we knew if they could find us some MDMA or anything else psychedelic. We were in the mood to roll or possibly even trip if the opportunity presented itself. We unfortunately had no luck finding anything and the venue was about to close so we left and headed to an after hours party that a friend had told us about, hoping to find something there.

We arrived at the party to find a lot of people spinning poi and looking very speedy like they were on something. We found a few of our friends and asked if there if anyone had MDMA. We got a negative response but were offered a drug called 'M2' (Which I later found out was actually MDPV or 'bath salts').

At first I was hesitant to take up the offer as I am generally very nervous about research chemicals I've never heard of, so I decided to exercise caution. I walked around the party asking people if they'd taken it and what it was like. I got a positive response from one kid who claimed it's just a 'roll' and that he took it once, had a great time, and woke up the next morning feeling great.

So I decided to give it a try. I took one capsule and relaxed on the couch to converse with some friends while waiting for the effects to take hold. Within 20 minutes to a half hour I began to feel very speedy and talkative. It felt like I had taken MDMA cut with a large dose of methamphetamine. I felt very comfortable talking to pretty much anyone about anything and everything which resulted in a few sober people getting annoyed with me and walking away while I was still talking. This didn't bother me one bit. I just turned around to continue conversing with my friends who had also taken the 'M2'.

After about an hour or two my stomach began to feel 'empty' for lack of a better term, and very stimulated. It felt a lot like the feeling I get from coming down off of cocaine. It was that same 'wanting more' feeling, even though I hadn't peaked yet and felt no signs of coming down anytime soon.

As the night went on it gradually started to feel less like MDMA and more like a jittery amplified form of methamphetamine. I found myself chugging water constantly. I couldn't seem to quench my thirst no matter how much water I drank. I had to urinate about every 20 minutes. This is about the point where I was no longer enjoying myself. I felt insane like I was never going to come down. I was so tweaked I could no longer formulate coherent sentences, let alone carry on an intelligible conversation.

6am rolled around and the sun started coming up and I still felt like I was never going to come down. I got a ride home from a friend and when I got there my girlfriend was getting up to get ready for work. When she left I couldn't think of anything else to do in order to chill out other than to masturbate ferociously. I masturbated a total of 5 times in a row and still sleep seemed impossible. I could feel my heart beat throughout my entire body, my armpits and extremities were sweating profusely, and every physical sensation was a nightmare.

I contemplated walking to the hospital and checking myself into the ER. The longer I paced around in my apartment freaking out the better that idea sounded. Just when I was about to put my shoes on and sprint to the hospital I remembered something a kid told me earlier that night. He said he'd been on this drug for 3 days (which blew my mind) and that if I wanted to fall a sleep I just have to force myself to eat something.

So I took 6 melatonin pills and cooked myself an eggy in a basket. As undesirable as it was I forced myself to eat it. To my surprise as soon as something was in my stomach I began to feel much more at ease.

About 10 minutes later the melatonin kicked in and I laid down on my bed and closed my eyes. I still felt a bit overstimulated but with food in my stomach and the effects of the melatonin I was able to eventually drift off into a state that some might call sleep, although it hardly felt like I'd slept at all upon awakening.

I woke up around 5pm and realized I had to be at work in an hour and wanted to cry. I still felt a residual tweaked out feeling and my body felt as if I'd been hit by a truck.

Since then I have never taken another research chemical other than 25i-NBOME which I find to be very enjoyable. I will never take MDPV or any other amphetamine analog RC and I would never recommend it to anyone. It's a nightmare and makes for the worst hangover I've ever had, aside from getting alcohol poisoning.

It is very dangerous and I could see the possibility of it causing people to do awful things that they would never do otherwise. All in all MDPV is a no go folks.
