Being a curious sort, and having quite an obsession with stimulants, I decided to try out a gram of Naphyrone. The company I purchased it from had renamed it ZX-1. When I asked what it was they told me it is the same thing as NRG-1 or Naphyrone.
When it arrived I was a bit nervous but mostly excited. I immediately dropped what I was doing and measured out a few 20 mg lines and snorted one. I felt an almost instant “awakening.” I would not say it was euphoric, but it was very pleasant. As the day went by I continually redosed. I found that I had tons of energy and excellent concentration, but almost no euphoria. I kept thinking, “if I do a little more I'll feel high.”
I kept thinking, “if I do a little more I'll feel high.”
Well, I lost count of how many lines I did but I never felt “high” I just felt hyper. I also had these weird moments where I would feel very tired and yucky and I would have to lay down for about 30 minutes. This happened several times the first day. But after a brief nap, another line would get me going.
I had no trouble getting to sleep that night, which surprised me. And the next day I was up and zooming again. Up, down, up, down. This went on for several days.
On about day five, I began to feel ill and shaky, and I had moments when I questioned my sanity. Eventually my gram of Naphyrone ran out and, to tell you the honest truth, I was glad it was gone. I have not bought more.
Conclusion: I felt a compulsive need to redose even though doing so did not actually increase the effects.
I don't know if this stuff is actually harmful. I think I just used way too much. But all in all, I am glad I tried it, and I am also glad to say goodbye to it.
