After a stressful night of work as a cajun saute cook, a couple of co-workers and I tried to score some Ketamine but failed. I went home to get ready for a party that some other co-workers were throwing that night. A friend who is an exotic dancer dropped by and told me she had a hit of x that she had recieved as a tip. She is extremely inexperienced with drugs, and I was able to talk her out of taking it at work (That was her plan, stupid, huh?) and sell it to me instead. It was a large pink-purple pill with a bold x imprinted on one side. It tasted like vitamin c strongly, but it also had a very strong bitter-root-beer taste of MDMA contaminated with unreacted safrole. I chewed the tab and chased it with a glass of water at 11:45 and ran about 2-3 miles through the winter night to the party.
Within 15 minutes I had a good alert, by the time I arrived it was hitting me hard enough that I had to retire to a quite corner of the room for a while. By about 1 I was reaping all of the benefits MDMA has to offer. The setting was perfect ( a relaxed party, a lot of mellow, interesting college kids, mostly female ;) ) the drug level was perfect and I had an amazing time meeting and talking to more attractive females than I had seen in years. I drank moderately at the party. I met a particularly interesting young woman with whom I spent most of the night conversing and trading massages. I felt incredibly content and uninhibited, a considerable accomplishment for someone like me.
About 4 the party broke up, I bid farewell to my new friend and went to another friends house to smoke some high grade cannabis. About 5 I was starting to crash somewhat, feeling like I was coming off speed. I rather foolhardily decided to take some harmala at 6 to re-boost my 5-ht levels, as I had no 5-htp. I have combined MDMA and harmala twice before this, once taking 2g 7 hrs before the E with marked potentiation and no increase in side effects, but maybe a bit more stoning than usual, and once smoking a passiflora xtract ala Gracie&Zarkov after coming down off of a barely active 60 mg dose of crystal MDMA, with a rekindeling of some effects.
15 minutes after taking the harmala I got the first rush, by 30 minutes I was rolling harder than i had been at the peak. From 7 to about noon I was extremely intoxicated with a pounding heart, extreme stoning and strong sexual excitation ala methamphetamine, crankster thought patterns, but complete inability to maintain erection or reach orgasm. I drank a terribly bitter concotion of california poppy with no effect, so I cooked up about 5 g of good weed in some oil and added some sugar and downed it about 2 o'clock. By the time I had to go to work at 4, I was absolutely calm, blank and apathetic despite still being fairly speedy. I bribed a co-worker to come in and work for me, as I kept puking in the trash between orders. Despite this and the fact that my mouth and throat felt like I had been binging on meth, I was actually quite happy, laughing and smiling. I left work and went with some friends to pick up some kava and 5htp. The checkout girl asked me what kava did, and I answered that it was a sedative-muscle-relaxant and she smiled and said that sounded nice. I told her it was nice, she rang us up and we left.
We picked up a pint of vodka and soaked the entire 1/4 lb of kava in warm vodka for an hour or so while we smoked some cannabis and I took 50 mg 5htp. Then we strained out the alcohol which had the color of a Sam Adams Boston Lager. We did a few water rinses to extract any remaining alcohol extract and when we added the water solution to the alcohol solution it immediately turned milky grey-tan. We split this potent drink 3 ways that night, sipping it slowly. It was strongly numbing, especially soothing on my tongue and throat and had a considerable relaxant effect. I went home about midnight and crashed out face first in my boots and coat on the middle of the floor and slept like the dead for 1o hrs and woke up remembering a strange dream in which I was trying to drink a teaspoon of ghb, but it seems 1000 times too strong and i keep almost passing out every time I take a tiny sip from the spoon. Strange dream, but maybe not for someone whose last g experience was one of aspirating on vomit, going into full pulmunary/cardiac arrest and laying on my floor dead until my body temp was 62 degrees,then waking up in the ER.
Anyhow, It seems to me that maoi's after an E peak will primarily potentiate the dopaminergic stimulant effect rather than the entactogenic effects. I think a MDMA kava combo would be great for next time, I've had enough of borderline-stupid combos for a while.
