This past weekend my fiancť and I were bored on a Friday night. We had both had a long week and I was tired of just doing what we did every Friday, drink. I had recently been introduced to a person who I met at work who had been trying to sell some pills for extra income. I decided that I wanted to roll tonight because why not? It had been over 5 or more years since I had taken an ecstasy pill, because I was starting to have adverse reactions to it, i.e. nausea, vomiting.

I have spent countless hours recently studying trip reports, how experiences were different yet similar, these new research chemicals and just drugs overall. I have learned a lot and itís not that I am interested in trying new drugs or even old drugs Iíve done on many occasions, I just find it interesting. Its also interesting to see what these drugs are sold as and end up being something else. Iíve combed through and I am surprised how many pills/blotter is not what its intended to be.

Anyways, my fiancť, we will call him EJ, and I are very close. Weíve known each other for 17 years and have been together for 3 years. Therefore we are very close and open with each other. As we wait for the substance to arrive, we are drinking and feeling anxious but trying to relax on our couch. Iím playing a video game. Once it does arrive at around 10:30pm, we immediately take one each. We turn the lights out and I continue trying to play the video game, but soon I just canít. I feel the euphoria of MDMA within 15 to 20 minutes. This doesnít seem normal though. Its not strong and it came on much faster than any pill I have taken in the past.

After about half an hour, Iíve lost any euphoria and just feel speedy. I decide that I want to take another one, maybe the pill we took is a low dose. EJ agrees that this seems strange. We are drug veterans after all. Itís just been many years for either of us. We both take another one and the slight euphoria comes back. It doesnít last but another 10-15 minutes and the speedy feeling comes right back. At this point I knew these pills werenít MDMA. Had I not been studying all these substances, I might have thought it was just a weak pill. But when the feeling off bouncing off the walls intensified, I knew I was in for a long night.

About an hour after the first pill, EJ is feeling very sexual. He finds it necessary to walk around our apartment without pants on. I on the other hand felt no connection sexually to him. It was awful. I love this man very much and usually always feel a connection to him sexually. Instead of wanting to be intimate with each other, due to my interest, we sat and talked at our bar, him with no pants on, me writing down a story he was telling me.

Several hours after this, we are still both feeling like we had the energy and needed to climb a mountain. We have a 3rd pill that we decided to break up and insufflate. I donít know why we felt the need to compulsively redose, we werenít having a great time. We do this and the same crappy feeling of being on meth (Iíve never done it, EJ used to do it A LOT) times 10. Its not fun. We are both still drinking heavily because the speed feeling is preventing us from feeling drunk.

By this time I lose track of whats going on. I know I start to black out. I forget what happened for the past 6 hours. Iím finally starting to come down and its 4am. FALSE ALARM! I must have woken up from a blackout only to still feel like I am high as a kite on some upper on steroids. My mind canít focus now, I am starting to feel drunkish, but not in the normal way I would. I must black out again shortly after I drink some more and come to and EJ and I decide its time to go to bed. Holy hell it was 11am the next day. We engage in sexual activity in our bedroom and we fall asleep.

We are woken by something at 3pm. We only had about 3 hours of sleep. I initially felt tired, but after taking a Xanax I felt relaxed, but AWAKE. I start playing my video game again, almost all day until 4am the next morning. EJ has gone to bed. He went to bed around 12-1am. I couldnít sleep. The Xanax must have done something to reactivate this drug.

EJ wakes up at 9:30am the next morning, in turn waking me up. We go downstairs and he immediately wants to have sex. I am feeling less of that cracked out feeling so we engage. As the day goes on, again I wake up, with the little sleep Iíve had, I would ordinarily want to rest. I start drinking again and my body continues on going, not even calming down to go to bed for work at 9:30. I get to bed at 10. I slept ok but am tired today. Though, with the amount of sleep I got all weekend, I should be more tired. I think this crap is still in my system.

After doing more research, I have come to the conclusion that we were given Ephylone. It wasnít fun. It was a redbull pressed pill and apparently there have been adulterered pills of that nature. I donít want to go through that again. Nor does EJ. He said its like Meth times 10. I wish I could trust pills and not get a testing kit, but its almost a must these days. I miss the good ol days when we got MDMA. Is it worth spending $65 on a kit when I donít roll often? Maybe. Or should I just stay away like I had been? That kind of dosing could have been dangerous.
