10 mg insufflated Pharms - Methylphenidate (powder / crystals)


I've known of ritalin for many years; several of my friends and my girlfriend take it, for ADHD and ADD. I never thought of taking it myself, although recently alot of people in the area have started snorting it.

The first time i tried it, and my first time snorting anything, my friend crushed up a few pills and made lines for my friends and I. I snorted it. It seemed to burn a bit, but that went away soon.

The first thing I noticed was wide-eyedness. I couldn't help but keep my eyes wide open. It wasn't like being awake from caffeine; but I couldn't help keeping them wide open. Soon, I felt focused and ambitious to do...anything at all. At the time, I played basketball, even though I hate the game. I played a good game too, my head was in the game, and I was playing pretty intensely. Later that night, I couldn't sit very still, and kept myself busy on the computer at home. That night, I couldn't sleep. It made me jittery.

I ended up taking Tylenol PM finally to fall asleep. The following week in school was great; the focus and ambition to study and do school work lasted; the hyperness left.

Now I think I might be addicted, but I don't mind. I get it free from friends, and I only get the focused, alert and ambitious feelings from snorting it. I am doing phenomenal in school; my grades are constant, I study alot, I focus in class and participate in class 1st period monday mornings.
