  repeated insufflated Ethylphenidate (powder / crystals)
    repeated   Etizolam (powder / crystals)


I have never had Methylphenidate, but with all the hype about it, and its heavy comparison to Ethylphenidate, I thought I would give it a try. I first ordered a 1 gram bag of powder. I decided to try a small bit in my room. This was just after midday.

My ROA was insufflation, which was extremely painful, it burnt horribly, and took a few attempts to finish a 60mg line approx. The effects were almost immediate (as it took a few minutes to finish the line), a full body rush, euphoria, increased sociability and empathy. I went downstairs and had a conversation with my family, I don't recall it being deep or emotional, but I remember feeling very stimulated and engaged, and was euphoric that I had such a nice conversation. This lasted about 30 mins.

They left, and I went to redose. Again, the burn was horrible, but I felt extremely confident and started working on my computer. I was extremely focused on my work, and enjoyed doing it. I re-dosed multiple times, and had to get a wash towel to use as a handkerchief due to the amount of mucus I was blowing out of my nose. When I had completed my main tasks, I longed for more work to keep my mind occupied. (Working from home as an IT specialist, so things like scripting were very stimulating) I started creating tasks and finished literally everything I had assigned to me and more. All in all, I was extremely productive.

I spent an hour or two working, and redosed every 20 minutes with about 50Mg per line. I decided to go onto facebook and reconnected with some friends I had not spoken to in years. It was great! I had hour long conversations with multiple people.

I found the drug extremely morish, and noticed I was sneezing out mucus with bits of blood in it. As I was so tweaked, this increased my anxiety and I got very jittery. I took 5MG of Etizolam to kill the anxiety, and kept re-dosing on the Ethylphenidate.

I decided to play GTA, which I got very focussed on, and lost track of time. I took Etizolam along with the Ethylphenidate to maintain the high, while keeping feelings of paranoia and anxiety at bay. I kept playing GTA for hours till the EPH was finished.

My nose was burning, and I was starting to sneeze out a fair amount of bloody mucus.

I took another batch of Etizolam, relaxed, and fell asleep. It took a fair amount of time to fall asleep, and the comedown was not pleasant, I still felt paranoid and anxious, and thought about the things I had said to people, feeling a bit embarrassed. I was in a sort of limbo state till I eventually fell asleep with the help of more Etizolam. I did not keep track of the amounts I was taking, but they were pretty high.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, bar the comedown, however the etiz helped greatly. I went on to purchase more of the powder regularly, and mixed it with Lidocaine powder (Local anesthetic) so I could take more without worrying about the pain.

I used Ethylphenidate on and off for 2 years, great for recreation and for work. I then started to get addicted to the recreational aspect and found myself taking high doses (Over a gram per session) 2-3 times a week. I was constantly blowing out bloody mucus, all day. I would wake up with a nose full of dried blood and mucus, and would use vaseline to essentially get chunks out of my nose.

I then noticed a hole, inside my septum. Not visible externally, but I could feel it, and could put tiny objects through it.

I immediately toned down my use of EPH, and do not take it anymore. The hole is slowly healing up. So as a warning, avoid heavy use of this drug, as it is very corrosive.
