T+0:00 2 glasses of 18.5% tawny wine already consumed, small teaspoon of pure phenyethylamine purchased online added to a glass of tonic water and quickly consumed.
T+0:30 No effects felt from single teaspoon of phenyethylamine, a bottle of 4.5% beer is consumed within a 5 minute period.
T+0:40 another half teaspoon of phenylethylamine is dissolved into another glass of tonic water and quickly drunk, cigarette is lit straight after consumption.
T+0:50 strong, and I mean strong amphetamine like rush is felt throughout body akin very much so to a dextroamphetamine rush, in fact it was actually stronger than any dex or even MDMA rush I have ever felt.
T+1:00 rush seems to peak at this point I feel extremely energetic and euphoric, heart rate is significantly increased although not to a worrying point, skin also seems to be more sensitive than usual and when looking in the mirror it seems my face is quite red which is not a side effect I usually get from alcohol alone.
T+1:15 high seems to be starting to taper off slightly, though still quite powerful.
T+1:30 High seems to well and truly be on the decline though no bad comedown effects of the usual amphetamine kind seem to be occurring, another half a teaspoon is consumed in another glass of tonic water.
T+1:45 a second cigarette is lit and smoked, every puff seems to bring on the phenyl rush more and more, presumably due to tobacco's maoi effects? This is actually the only reason I was smoking tobacco, I have no tolerance for nicotine.
T+1:50 I'm back up to where I was before although the skin sensitising effect is more apparent this time it isn't uncomfortable rather quite enjoyable, its like a pleasant prickling sensation throughout my cheeks and scalp, similar too what dex causes but stronger.
T+2:00 slight indigestion is noted the high is peaking once again, very enjoyable but heightened blood pressure and lightheadedness is apparent it is nothing I haven't experienced from actual amphetamines (in fact at this point experience has exceeded expectations so much so that I wouldn't be surprised if I was supplied with actual amphetamines under the guise of phenylethylamine if the experience wasn't so short lived).
T+2:15 rush starts to subside again into a pleasant floaty, prickly, blissful stimulation. Guitar is played for 10 minutes with extreme focus and noted expansion of creativity compared to a sober state of mind.
T+2:30 High is subsiding slightly, though slight pressure in head is noted no other amphetamine like comedown effects have appeared yet.
T+2:45 Stimulated buzz is giving way to a tiring comedown though not nearly as bad as an actual amphetamine or god forbid MDMA comedown. Sleep seems like a good option soon.
T+3:00 Sleep seems like a good option, there is a definite comedown although it lacks the intense depression and lingering stimulation of fully fledged amphetamines meaning sleep should and does come easily.
Overall a very positive experience, definitely more than I bargained for considering it's legal, extremely cheap. Seems to equal if not surpass pharmaceutical amphetamines in my book and although it doesn't equal MDMA in terms of euphoric ability it is a very viable alternative, although the short duration is a problem repeated dosing did seem to work.
Will be treating this substance with respect and will be purchasing some accurate scales in order to properly measure out doses from now on. All in all a very powerful and very positive experience compared to expectations. The physical effects are very real and it does seem capable of the same complications that can come with actual amphetamine use.
