1 tablet oral MDMA  
  Repeated smoked Cannabis (flowers)
  Repeated smoked Tobacco - Cigarettes  
It was a cold, windy night and I found myself with nothing to do. A prospective LSD trip for tomorrow had been postponed for a week, so drugs were on my mind. I remembered I had a pill in my room, that had been obtained a month previously, and having never tried ecstasy outside of a group/party setting I decided to gauge its effects on me individually. I had taken an identical pill a few weeks before. My friend had tested them and they had a high MDMA content. I had smoked five cones approximately two hours prior to my experience: the high had worn off, and I was feeling tired. I retrieved the pill from where I had put it, examined it for a few minutes, placed it in my mouth and swallowed it. The only thing I had eaten recently was a bread roll, so I expected a quick come-up.

T+0.00: My heart immediately starts racing and I feel very excited and even a bit anxious. My parents are home, so I hope that I wonít go too wild. I had not planned anything to do, so I sat down and finished watching a nature show, waiting for the effects of the drug to manifest.

T+0.50: At this point I look at my clock and thought it odd that I was yet to feel any effects. Last time I took these I could remember them coming on faster. I decide it would be a good idea to smoke some weed, hoping it would accelerate the peak, so I went to my desk and prepared my things. Walking around my room I felt light and happy, but I knew the full peak was yet to come. I put some music on and smoked five cones, stopping there because I knew I would have to save my remaining cannabis for later. It felt particularly easy to pull the bong, and I would have kept smoking had I the appropriate amount of substance.

T+0.55: The high hit me, but still no peak. At the moment the high is more noticeable than the effects I am getting from the pill. With nothing to do, I sit in my room, listen to music and roll two cigarettes. I go outside to smoke them, and am struck by the beauty of the stars in the sky and the raw power of nature itself. I visit the bathroom and notice that my pupils are quite large. I return to my room to play some video games.

T+1.10: I start to feel a little horny, so I go to my computer to look at some porn, but am unable to get an erection. Disappointed, I return to the video games.

T+1.40: The peak hits me and I decide it would be a good idea to go for a walk. I had an urge to talk to someone, so I give my friend G a call, the person who provided the pill for me. He tells me of his new bong he bought yesterday, and we organise to have a smoke tomorrow. I roll a cigarette and go outside. It is a very windy night, and the feeling of the air particles rushing over my face and body is quite enjoyable. I feel very light as I walk and am not affected by the cold temperature.

T+1.55: I arrive at the shops and it is around this time that I begin to notice my jaw clenching, so I purchase some gum, drink and cigarettes. I sit down, have a smoke, and call my friend B, the person with whom I was hoping to take acid tomorrow. We have a nice chat and I suggest we hang out soon. I sit down, smoke cigarettes and drink water for around a little while. At this point I begin to feel horny again, so I decide to walk to the local brothel. Up until this point I had never, but it felt like the time was right.

T+3.30: I arrive at the Ďhouseí and my feelings are the same as before, so I walk up the stairs and enter. I pay for a half hourís time and am introduced to my girl. On the way to the room she notices that I am not quite myself and asks me if I am ok, so I tell her about the pill I took. She then proceeded to tell me that she had taken two last night, so we continue to chat about this. I did not mention my sexual inexperience to her.

I take a shower and undress, feeling comfortable in my situation. It is now that my night becomes interesting. I couldnít get it up! I donít think the pillís helping, says the girl, Do you just want to talk? I tell her Iíll see how I am in a few minutes. Ecstasy, my friend and nemesis. I have a cig and she offers me a beer. A strange, remarkable situation to be in, not at all unpleasant. I think a chat with the girl might be nice at this time.
A strange, remarkable situation to be in, not at all unpleasant. I think a chat with the girl might be nice at this time.

We talk about work and drugs for a while, before she offers me a massage, which I willingly accept. The massage fails to arouse me. It is difficult to describe how I was feeling afterwards, and my memory of it is a little hazy. Nonetheless, I was glad that I could give the girl a break from work for half an hour, and it was very interesting talking to her about her work and other things. The entire event felt like it had some sort of mystical importance to it.

T+4.00: I begin walking back home, thinking of the events that just occurred, unable to discern whether or not they mean anything. The peak effects are now starting to wear off a little, but I am still definitely under the drugís influence. Walking the deserted streets late at night, I get a strong urge to write some graffiti, and am disappointed I did not bring an appropriate implement. Around this time G gives me another call. We arrange to meet up tomorrow.

T+4.30: I arrive home, listen to some music for a while and notice that I am still feeling the drugís effects fairly strongly. I decide to smoke the rest of my cannabis, so I bring my speakers outside and chill out for a while. I smoke a few cigarettes and decide to turn the music off. It is nice listening to the night.

T+5.16: This is the last time I look at a clock. I lie in my bed and feel very comfortable, the MDMA and cannabis reaching a good synergy. I begin to notice some mild closed eye visuals, so I decide to concentrate on them. I often get CEVs when I smoke cannabis, but the stuff I have been smoking tonight and for the past few weeks always failed to produce any. I got very vivid mental images of whatever I thought of (usually faces and human forms), as well as the usual, colourful curves. Not as vivid as LSD, but more vivid than they usually are from cannabis. When I open my eyes I see the same sort of patterns forming on my ceiling. I did not have any trouble getting to sleep. I felt relaxed and tired.

T+12.10: The next morning. I awakened early and couldnít get back to sleep as I still felt a little stimulated. Possibly just a placebo effect, although I did notice some slight jaw clenching. I lied in bed for a while. I didnít feel tired or scattered at all, only physically sore from all the walking I did the previous night. When I closed my eyes I still noticed some mild CEVs. I was very sound emotionally and mentally, and my head felt clear as I reflected on the previous night. It was an interesting, unexpected experience, but I am happy with how I handled everything. Thoroughly enjoyable, I doubt I will be repeating anything similar soon. The experience was very important for me.
