  repeated insufflated 4-Methylmethcathinone (powder / crystals)
My buddy had been telling me about the drug for a while when I was away at school, and recommended I try it. After countless reports of his experiences I made my way back home from college for my summer break. Within 3 days he was at my house crushing up lines on my kitchen counter.

0:00 He was experienced with the chemical and layed out a line telling me to snort all of it. I try to be careful with hard drugs especially one that is a research chemical, so I snorted half at first and waited about 5 minutes. I quickly felt it onset and I bumped the other half.

0:10 I was high off my ass. My heartbeat was up and my mind euphoric. I loved the feeling. It was incredible. He put on some music while we were outside on a sunny day. I had heard the first song he played upwards of a hundred times before that day but it was different. The music was ecstasy, my mind was scrambled with joy, and my body felt amazing. I had just put on lotion, because I have OCD and my hands are typically dry from washing them, and I couldnít stop rubbing my hands together because they felt so soft.

0:20 I had reached plateau and my eyes were starting to shake. I canít describe it in words but it was similar to what they say our eyes do during R.E.M. sleep. My eyes shook several times and soon it felt like they wanted to roll back into my head. I was the highest I had ever been from any drug, but I knew in the back of my mind that I was close to passing out, or dying. However, I truly didnít care. I was on cloud 9 and death doesnít frighten me. I was too busy enjoying everything around me. The colors, the sounds, and every material I touched.

0:30 I was at a comfortable plateau and the rest of my experience was similar to what I previously described. My OCD was no longer a factor. I didnít feel like performing any compulsions, and things were simple for the first time in years. My mind was only purely absorbing the things around me.

0:50 I was starting to come down. My eyes were no longer shaking but I was still upbeat. I was slightly less euphoric but still happy. Reflecting on why things couldnít always be that simple.

I redosed 2 or 3 more times later that day. All of which produced similar results, except without the feeling of my eyes rolling back into my head. I will add that the drug does have serious addiction potential. After a full comedown, the body does fiend.

Looking back I realize how intoxicated I was at the peak of my experience. I realize now I was extremely close to losing consciousness. I will say I should have been more careful and be responsible when ingesting this chemical.
