I have no idea if we are allowed to post stuff like this on here, I tried looking through the forum rules but did not find anything, so if any mod finds this inappropriate please delete. I am 43 and have done a fair amount of experimenting with illicit substances in my time, and to this day still smoke my share of pot.. The one thing Ive never done is ecstasy. When I was younger it was getting popular right about the same time I was almost done taking psychedelics, and for the 20 some years I never encountered. Now for one reason or another I find myself running into people who talk highly of it, and for the past 2-3 years have been trying to get me to take it but I've been resistant for the following reasons. 1) I need whats left of my brain for my job 2) If it is anything like LSD, Im not interested in an 8 hour trip, and dont want to take the chance on having a bad trip. 3) Finally, it is not completely understood how this drug works in the brain, and what any dangers are, although this probably applies more to long term use than a single experimental dose. As time goes on I find myself getting more and more willing to try it, but I still have my doubts. Im sure there are folks on here that have done it. What were the affects and how long did they last? Is there any kind of mental or physical hang over associated with it?
