A Thing of Beauty

140 mg oral Methylone (capsule)
I'd always dismissed MDMA and the like as only being party drugs, which was a big turn-off for me. To say that my recent experience with bk-mdma changed my mind is an understatement. After reading 'Acid Test' I became curious about empathogens and what they had to offer. As luck would have it, my psychonaut friend had what he described as a 'chilled out MDMA'. I researched a bit and I was sold.

My drug experience before this experience was limited, consisting of a lot of cannabis and 4 experiences with psilocybin. It's worth noting that I am a bit of a lightweight.

The trip:

T+0:00 (8:14) Took a 140mg capsule with some water. I had eaten a big dinner 40ish minutes beforehand. A bit nervous but slightly more excited.

T+0:35 I meditated and the anxiety left me. No effects yet. I decide to go in the hot tub.

T+0:45 In the hot tub, still no noticeable effects.

T+0:55~ I turn on the strobe light in the hot tub and turn the jets on. The light is more pronounced than usual. I begin to feel quite comfortable, though nothing out of this world. This comfort escalates slightly throughout the next 20 or so minutes. I was not even completely certain the Methylone had kicked. I was a bit disappointed.

T+1:20 I dry myself off and go to the bathroom to change. I look in the mirror and notice that my pupils are dilated. At that point something clicked and I felt a mild euphoria coming on. Visually, I do not notice much. I go to my room and start talking to some friends on facebook.

T+1:35 When I take my attention away from my phone and realize how good I feel. I am extremely comfortable and overcome with an overwhelming sense of well being. The light in my room stood out a bit more than usual and colors were just a touch more pronounced.

T+2:15 I feel very friendly and social and the aforementioned effects were slightly more intense. Looking back on it, I think my peak was around this time. I message a few friends to tell them how lucky I am to know them. Even then, I feel pretty clear-headed. Typing took slightly longer than usual but it was still quite easy.

T+3:20 The effects are fading slowly. Somehow, I start thinking about how I can be pretty mean sometimes and I consider what I can do to improve on my self. In general I feel some solid ego softening and a heightened sense of right and wrong. I feel slightly sad when I consider that the effects will eventually wear off.

T+4:00 I'm not 'High' anymore but I still feel good. I feel a slight cotton mouth coming on. I continue talking to friends for about an hour before trying to sleep.

T+5:00 The cotton mouth gets very intense. I feel very sleepy but something isn't clicking, the cotton mouth is distracting too. I drink a lot of water but it keeps coming back. It takes maybe an hour and a half of tossing and turning to get to sleep.

I woke up at 6:15, feeling a bit drowsy but not much more than usual. The cotton mouth was still running strong and does not leave me until about noon. I felt a bit out of it and slightly warm for that day. A good chunk of that was probably the lack of sleep, though.

The effects were interesting to say the least. Visually, there was not much to speak of. Physically I felt warm and fuzzy but nothing crazy either. The major changes were emotional. One thing that I loved about the Methylone experience is that it was quite passive. It really happened in the background and contributed rather than taking the wheel, as mushrooms and weed do. I feel changed for the better by the experience and I plan on having another in a month or two.
