"When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war. So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide."
-- John Lewis (1940-2020)

BODY WEIGHT: 250 lb


I bought Mephedrone on the internet. This was not my first time buying from this supplier but I would caution against ordering any chemical one plans to put in one's body on the internet. I’m not a small person, I’m about 5’6” and 250lbs, and however I found that the average dosage was more than enough, the effects of the drug to be more than evident. This was as I said not the first time I had ordered this drug from the supplier, not even two weeks prior I had finished a 1g bag of it; sharing only about 200g between my boyfriend and I while we tried tripping on 10mg each of 2C-E.

A brief history of my prior drug use includes: Crack, Vicodin, Cannabis, Methylone, 2-C-E, and MDPV. I must note that I do not have a milligram scale. The amount I ordered was 500mg (for 30USD), so I divided the bag into five lines, eyed them, and then separated them for easier re-dosing later.

[Erowid Note: Two samples of powder (even of the same chemical) with equivalent volumes won't necessarily weigh the same. For this reason, eyeballing is an inaccurate and potentially dangerous method of measuring, particularly for substances that are active in very small amounts. See this article on The Importance of Measured Doses.]

My first dose, about 100mg was at 11:30pm. I had to wake up fairly early the next morning so in hindsight this wasn’t the best time to start taking it. I had already done 9 lines over the previous week so I was a bit more accustomed to the burn; however there’s a terrible pressure that builds up in my head when I first snort it causing an awful headache.

Less than a minute after snorting the line I felt a warm, tingly feeling of extreme euphoria which I could gradually feel building. Almost immediately after that, the most notable feeling I felt was intense sexual desire. I was sitting on my bed doing homework at the time but found I had an urge to turn on music and dance. I checked the mirror about five minutes after that first line and my pupils were dilated.

It was around 12:30am and the feeling of euphoria still felt as if it was building. I decided to get in the shower. My sense of touch was greatly enhanced and I found myself playing with my hair and wrapping my arms around myself. I did however begin to experience a feeling of being warm, so decidedly I turned the water on cold and stood under the spray of the shower.

I must note that my hands and feet were incredibly cold despite my body temperature rising

; this normally happens to me when I have a large amount of chemicals in my system, I also noticed my heart rate was incredibly high, but I didn’t care, it felt way too good. I got out of my shower after about 20 minutes of it, I had to make myself get up, there were other people in the house with whom I share the shower with, and they were complaining about how long I’d been in there. My perception of the passage of time was mildly distorted.

When I got back into my room, it was cold and I realized I had not dried off before getting out of the shower. I had an intense desire to dance or stay in motion in some way. So I turned up my music and danced in my bed room, behind my closed door. I am an introverted person usually but I had the urge to talk to someone. I found it quite comforting to talk aloud and even when I wasn’t speaking out loud, I continuously had an inner monologue. I ended up calling a few friends and speaking with them about various things, but I noted I was able to have a coherent conversation though they said I sounded like I was “tired” or “stoned”. I was very far from tired, in fact there was a nervous pent up energy that I had no outlet for beginning to replace the euphoria I had once felt.

At 1am, I did another line. I was visibly shaking, my hands were cold but by no means was I uncomfortable. I felt better than amazing; the second dose I took seemed to increase my feelings of euphoria. The feelings of euphoria eventually began to fade and gave way to more nervous energy. It was then I realized I wouldn’t be sleeping.

Around 2:30am, I decided to do two more lines to increase the feeling of euphoria I so longed to feel again. It felt almost as good as the first two times, but not quite as much as an immediate rush. I have never considered myself to have a tendency to be addicted to a drug, but there is definitely a certain allure to that first rush I get when I snort mephedrone. I’m not sure if I would call it an addiction, but I knew I would want to feel it again so I saved the last 100mg I had divided for the next evening.

I did not sleep that evening at all. I kept my music playing fairly low, and typed a short story, I was typing until about 9am. I was sober but wide awake but then and I had to start my day, whether I was ready for it or not. I came down in a soft manner, barely noticing the time passing by, until the sun rose, at one point, I remember looking at the clock, around 4:45, wondering when I would fall asleep, but soon thereafter I began to type my aforementioned story and became so engrossed in it, I lost track of time. I typed 7.500 words of a coherent, intelligent work.

I did however stay up into the next evening when I did my last line of mephedrone at around 11:30pm. I’m not sure if it was because of how much I had done that morning or because of lack of sleep, but I only got a slight rush of euphoria. It was mildly disappointing, I wanted to relive the prior night in all its ecstasy but it seemed I simply couldn’t.

I remember lying down shortly thereafter. I didn’t sleep very well that evening; I fell asleep, maybe around 2am, completely exhausted and woke up the next day for class bright and early at 8am with a slight feeling of a hangover headache, mildly agitated , and quite sleepy.

With all of that said, I like this drug a lot but for a day or two after, I would even say I craved to feel its effects, despite the burn and the awful headache I got from snorting it. After doing it, I read of few testimonials of people who went through addiction to mephedrone and it is a very real possibility. Your self control has to outweigh your desire to feel the high again and if you know it doesn’t, then I would urge you not to try it. Though it does give me amazing feelings of euphoria and enhances my feelings of sexuality, it does lend itself to constant re-dosing. After about 300-400mg, my body is burnt out and needs time and rest to recuperate.
