40 mg insufflated Pharms - Methylphenidate (ground / crushed)
Well it was a saturday night and it was fair time in my town. So I goto the fair and pick up my ritalin a friend sold me for some tickets the night before. I decide to try it out there and we go to some bleachers (behind the carny trailors) and I crush 2 20mg ritalin tablets up and roll a 5 dollar bill and snif them both. At first I was surprised at how easy it was on my nose... Thats where the good feelings ended. After that I just got really jittery and spazed my ass off. Even walking up to total strangers and asking if they wanted to buy some ritalin. After that I wondered around alone wondering why I was there. My body felt very quick and pretty nice but my stomach hurt and my mouth was insanely dry. So I kept forcing myself to suck on ice so my mouth wouldnt be so dry. I did that because if I drunk anything I would gag after like 1 drink. My body started feeling really heavy after about 4 hours. I started telling the people I was with it was starting to wear off and I felt like shit. So I stumble around with my friends trying not to look fried. My head jerked slightly a few times and others I just thought it was because I asked a friend. Anyways heres a timeline of this horrible horrible little pills trip through my nose.

6:30pm - I crushed 2 20mg tablets and sniffed them.

7:00pm - I was really feeling it by then and I was quick and happy.

8:00pm - The effects started to trail off and I got sluggish and heavy feeling.

9:00pm - I was REALLY feeling the comedown by this time.

11:30pm - My ride finally picks me up from the fair and I manage to push out GOOD NIGHT to my mom as I focused VERY hard to not look messed up.

11:45pm - I try to sleep but find it pointless after about 30 minutes of watching the colors in my eyes wheni close them make shapes and form memorys of the fair that night.

1:00am - I smoke a bowl of marijuana, thinking it would make me tired. Then lay in bed for 3 hours...

4:24am - Thats what time it is right now... I feel empty... Not tired. My mouths filled with a gross ass feeling. I even brushed my teeth but its still there. I'm trying to keep some cokes down so I dont get to dehydrated. Eating really isnt an option right now.

Finally the conclusion... Ritalin is satans work. End of story. I had hours (days?) of feeling like shit and not being able to eat or sleep. Its scary to think millions of little kids take that shit every day and arent brain damaged. Anyways I'll go look at some pretty colors and feel like I jus got out of a car wreck until I can sleep...
