MDMA - a Completely Positive Experience

My experience with recreational drugs has always been very educated. I like to know what I am talking and do the research in order to better understand the potential dangers.

A little bit of backgroung - I have done MDMA (in crystal form) ~ 10 times, usually with a few weeks (even up to a few months) between experiences. I frequently smoke marijuana and occasionaly drink alcohol while taking MDMA. The MDMA was high quality, but it was street MDMA and not thereputical quality. The setting in all of my experiences has been rave or festival settings, and the mindset in those times was very uplifted and optimistic (prior to taking the drug).

Dosage - usually I would take an initial dose of ~100-150 mg and boost after about 3 hours in microdoses (~10-20 mg) every hour or so (maybe 2 or 3 times). I find that this way I can keep the plateau of the experience for longer at the same level.

When I plan to take MDMA, I hydrate regularly throughout the entire day before taking the drug. I also like to eat well beforehand, as I frequently lose appetite during those experiences, and I know that my body also tends to lose a lot of energy (so much dancing).

In all of my experiences, while some stronger and some lighter (I would like to talk more about the after-affects and less about the plateau of the experiences - amazing as it was), I have never 'crashed' afterwards or been depressed.
I have never 'crashed' afterwards or been depressed.
After about 6 hours from the initial dose I tend to gradually land into a fuzzy awareness, where I can be completely present and function properly (driving, working, engaging in conversations), while still feeling love towards the environment and my surroundings. Up to 2-3 days after the experience I have a general feeling of well-being, in addition to feeling 'un-phased' by occurences which would usually annoy or iritate me. After the third day, the feeling significantly wares of and leaves only slight remnents of the feelings I have been having for the past few days.

***I realize that everybody experiences drugs differently, and I am by no means suggesting that this is exactly what others will feel on MDMA - just that I (and my friends) have felt this consistantly, and I wanted to present my view and experience of a positive after-affect***
