I took mephedrone on a whim one night when I was drunk at a friendís birthday party. I was told it was like a hybrid of coke and ex and I have taken both of those a number of times so I figured Iíd give it a try, it sounded like fun. Honestly, it was like snorting straight up Comet Cleaner, it burned like nothing Iíd ever snorted including dirty coke but I was warned about this so it didnít phase me too much.

It took about 20 minutes for it to hit me and it was only slight because I had only taken a bump, so I decided to take another. I wanted to take it slow since it was a drug in which not much research had been conducted on it and I was already drinking so I figured I'd take it a bump at a timeÖuntil of course, that second bump started to kick in and I was feeling a euphoria similar to (but not nearly as enjoyable as) ex and a talkativeness and confidence similar to coke.

The setting I was in was a house party and everyone who was doing the meph was just sitting around and talking, so I definitely feel like if there was music playing/dancing going on it would have really enhanced the experience but like I said, I was a guest at the party so it was house rules and I even brought up the suggestion but no one really seemed to go for it so I left it at that.
Another reason I thought dancing would be much more fun while on this drug was because my friends who had done more meph than I had at that time were starting to make absolutely no sense when they were talking, just babbling nonsense which I know happens sometimes when youíre rolling really hard. So naturally, I expected this to happen to me which was ok. But if weíre only socializing while weíre fucked up and we canít even do that right why not do something more fun like dancing, after all we were on uppers! At least thatís where my thoughts were going, but then again I may be biased because I love dancing while on amphetaminesÖwell, I love dancing period. But anyways.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]

So after a little while of hanging out everything was going pretty great but I did get a REALLY strong urge to do it again (this was both after the first and second bumps, but the first was just because I was only feeling the tip of the iceberg). I can definitely see how this is an extremely addictive drug, even more so than cocaine at least with my personal experience. So the 3rd time I did it (approximately an hour after the 2nd bump), I ended up doing a line and thatís when it really started kicking in full force. It was definitely a lot of fun, got that amped up feeling which I love and was all smiles the rest of the night. My friend played Everybody Everybody by Benny Benassi on the car ride back and I was on cloud 9 which reinforces my prior mention of listening to music or dancing on meph, itís just that much better and simulates rolling a lot more when the right tunes are played.

After we got back I hung out a little at my friendís apartment before heading back to my place to whip out my finger lights and rave, which was great. Sleeping wasnít too hard, but I had been up really early the day before so I was pretty exhausted, plus I smoked some weed at my friendís apartment which I think helped take me down some.

However, the crash from mephedrone is really, REALLY shitty. I only have bad come downs from molly (MDMA), never rolls themselves, and that was nothing compared to the day after my mephedrone experience. I was depressed all day, easily agitated, very irritable, got annoyed by little things my friends did and didnít want to hang around anyone but felt even worse when I was alone. During this time I did a lot of introspection and online research, trying to pick up on any little thing I could find about meph.

Overall, I would say my experience was a good one while the high lasted, but the day-after crash and the strong urges towards repeated use has made me never want to do it again. It was a one-time thing.Itís a dirty, dirty drug and I really donít know a whole lot about it. I hope this report has provided some insight, until next time! PLUR
