My love affair with E started in 1998, I was 16, had never done any 'hard' drugs before. I smoked weed, did mushrooms occasionally and drank. I had heard of E but no one had really told me what it was like. So when i got to this party and my best friend gives me a hug and starts telling me how messed up he is and how great it feels I got a little excited. He gave me my pill(they were purple @'s) and I took it right away, it was about 9pm. I went around the party and almost forgot about it until I went out front and sat on the porch with a friend of mine, we were talking and then BOOM! It hit me like a ton of bricks, the most amazing, incredible feeling i've ever had in my life, I sat there for like 5 minutes going 'oh my god, oh my god, this is awesome. The rest of the night was like a dream, going from room to room meeting new people, talking about the most interesting things, holding hands, hugging.

From that point on I was hooked. I was young and stupid, and E was a new and exciting thing, so I started doing it every weekend, even if no one else was on it I had to be, no matter where I was it made the night magical. That was for years ago, I'm now 20 and the magics gone, I've done around 500 pills(I kept count for the longest time). I can't do it anymore because it just isn't the same and I can start to feel the side effects, my back is sore a lot, I get depressed easily, and I search for words sometimes when I speak. Now, let me get something straight, I didn't write this to scare whoever is reading, I wrote to give a message, and here it is: Be careful and smart, E is the most amazing drug ever created, I just did it too much too often. If you do E once maybe twice a year it can be therapeutic, help you let loose and really feel all the emotions that are inside you, it's like your seeing the world for the first time, it's a beautiful thing and you can learn a lot, about yourself and others. Just be careful and smart. Peace.=)
