Ecstasy (MDMA - "Methylenedioxymethamphetamine") is one of the most used and amazing drugs ever. It is a stimulant and psychedelic drug. Ecstasy is often abbreviated as "E", "X", "EX", or "XTX".

It is considered of the best drugs ever because it doesn't pose any major risks to your health, is fairly cheap (depending on your area), and the high (or "roll") it gives is unexplainable and extremely incredible.

Unlike many who have posted about this drug, I have lots of experience with it and have had it many times. The feelings it brings you are total relaxation & happiness. The way it makes you feel (literally) is like this: imagine having an orgasm spewing out everywhere from your body, but the feeling 20x more intense than a real orgasm. Imagine at the peak of sex where you are literally cumming, but that feeling for hours (but feels like forever), surrounding your body. When I get up to walk around when I'm rolling on ecstasy, it feels as though I'm running a million miles an hour, and whenever I touch anywhere on my skin it feels like even more of an intense orgasm (which is why people rub their arms a lot when on ecstasy). That is the best way I can describe it.

Be aware though of what you put in your body and where you get your ecstasy. The main ingredient is MDMA, but most of the time dealers cut in (mix with) meth, heroin, or other meth/heroin based drugs (like oxycontin). You might just be on a high from meth instead of actual MDMA, because mixing in meth can be a lot cheaper. Make sure you ask your source that it's either pure MDMA or at least 90% MDMA.

Although it is not physically addictive (where you need it do just live), it can be mentally addictive where you need it to go throughout the day, you absolutely NEED that high and rolling feeling. However, this only occurs from very, very heavy abuse.

Ecstasy is NOT a drug like weed, shrooms, or acid, where you can go out and fuck around with your friends. The effects are totally different and you just want to sit down and be with someone you love or be with good friends and listen to music and just lay down; this is why ecstasy is called the "sex drug" because most people who intake it have sex while they're on it, to increase the feeling. This is not saying you have to engage in sexual activity, it's just what people do. You can still have a good time relaxing and chilling with friends, but this drug can not be and should not be used out in public (with the exception of raves and heavy parties). Turn some good music on, relax, sit down, and just enjoy the feeling.

Overall, it's (in my mind, and many others) one of the safest, cheapest, best fulfilling and amazing drugs out there. Know where you get it from, make sure it's pure MDMA or mostly MDMA, and have a good time with a loved one, boyfriend/girlfriend, or some good friends.
Ecstasy is the most amazing drug ever.

Methylenedioxy-n-methylamphetamine MDMA is a 'psychedelic amphetamine' that has gained popularity over the past 20 years because of its ability to produce strong feelings of comfort, empathy, and connection to others. It most frequently comes in tablet form, although it is occasionally sold in capsules or as powder. It is most frequently used orally and rarely snorted. MDMA use is closely tied to the underground rave (and dance club) scene throughout the world, but has also been widely used by therapists as an adjunct to psychotherapy.
They took ecstacy before the concert and the effect lasted almost 4 hours.

Ecstasy was supposedly patented in 1913 by some German chemical company to be sold as an appetite suppressant, but they decided against marketing the diet pill and had nothing to do with it. It was banned federally in 1985.

I've tried just about every drug out there and XTC is the only drug I actually enjoyed. it lasts anywhere from 3-6 hours. It gives the most intense feeling that is hard to describe; half hour after you take the pill there's a intense rush-like feeling followed by a sense of pure pleasure/bliss, it produces positive feelings, empathy for others, elimination of anxiety, and extreme relaxation. Of course it does include crappy stuff such as involuntary teeth clenching (which is why most ravers suck on those pacifiers)and give you that bug eyed look.

Becareful though if you can't handle your drugs (like me at times) I do not recommend doing E, it can make you do and say things you will be ashamed of after the high is gone, plus the comedown can be huge a bitch. Not to mention the long-term effects that can leave you at risk of developing permanent brain damage that may manifest itself in depression, anxiety, memory loss, and other neuropsychotic disorders (some of which I may actually have now)
If you wanna try it do it once or twice, so you won't become one of those E-tarded burn-outs

Disco Biccies. Pingers. E. X. Rolls. Circles. XTC.
Methelene.Dioxy.Meth.Amphetamine. M.D.M.A.
Releases all the happy from your head in one big rush.
Makes you confused and sad in the morning (Scattered). This sad can be fixed if one takes a Prozac around 4 hours after you take your pinger.
Common at raves. Makes one feel elated, etc.
Statistics show one in three billion people are alleric to this drug.
It is illegal. It suppresses hunger for a long time.
Makes you give out hugs and other things, kisses, etc. Makes you very PLURry.
Ecstasy use (in the long term) has been related to depression and other such mental disorders.
If one takes a lot of ecstasy, one will build a tolerance to this drug (taking a lot of vitamins before one goes out will help keep your tolerance low).
Few people have died from it and you will certainly know if you are allergic.
One must drink water and keep hydrated if out at a Rave, etc. and have taken ecstasy. One should buy a bottle of water and refill it at intervals, drinking 600ml an hour if dancing vigourously and a bit if not dancing or moving much (smacking out).
There are a few effects of ecstasy you should look out for. It is not uncommon to feel slightly nauseous within the first hour of dumping (consuming), One may even vomit a once or twice. But only start worrying if you are vomiting consistantly and you feel horrible. This drug should not be doing that to you and you would be best off seeking medical assistance ASAP.
As in ASAP... Not when your friends tell you it will be okay dont worry.
Generally ecstasy is a fantastic drug, it produces feelings of extreme euphoria that cannot be found anywhere else.
Another fantastic drug is Acid. Only one person had died from it and that was through injecting the amount of 3000 tabs into himself. Acid is a very safe and very interesting drug. But I suggest you should have a little more experience with other drugs before you try Acid. Do not take Ice (shabs, crystal meth) or Heroin (smack)... These drugs are highly addictive and Ice is actually far more addictive than heroin. Dont even go there.

Anyway, Try EXTASY.
"I was, like, at the rave, like, and, like, I got, like a pill from this guy because i gave him head...It was a green one." - Example of filthy teenage rave scum girls.
"Oh man this E is totally goin off man, ESHAYS! Lets go STAUNCH c*nts with the asslays!" - Lads on ecstasy... It doesn't make them as elated as everyone else.
"This pinger is awesome. I'ma hug you." - Normal people on ecstasy.

The popular name for MDMA, which was discovered by US army in the early 20's but no real use for it was found, Andrew Shuglin rediscovered it in the mid 70's and popularized it. a drug which is commonly taken by clubbers/party goers. Typically comes in pill form bearing various designs or emblems to differentiate between the 'types' (though this is primarily a 'marketing' technique to rob the uneducated masses).
Can be taken orally, insufflated, injected or smoked, (also.. plugged), typically taken orally where effects typically last from 3-5 hours and user is often overwhelmed with a feeling of 'love and unity'. Unexperienced (or truly uninhibited) MDMA users tend to channel this energy into making out with whoever they stumble upon, very unsafe, and stupid.

Studies suggest ecstasy use causes damage to serotonin axons in the brain, via oxidization. (in the early stages of a comedown a chemical in your brain known as dopamine is broken down in a MAO (mono-amine oxidase) which creates some inert substances and H2o2 or.. hydrogen peroxide, or.. bleach). No hard data one way or the other though. MDMA is also linked to serotonin depletion or chemical depression.
Despite all these drawbacks.. its fun as hell :-P
I dropped 5 beans this weekend @ shongo. Good time, but im depressed as all hell now.

Ecstasy is a drug that usually comes in pill form and is known as X,E or Adam. this pill's main chemical component is MDMA (Methylene-dioxy-N-methylamphetamine' or'Methylenedioxymethamphetamine'). This pill does fill the body and mind with an extreme feeling of euphoria when taken. However it has devastating effects on the human brain. In fact MDMA effects the chemical level of Serotonin in our brains which leads to mood swings and aggressive behavior. It also causes people to be confused and detached from reality. In long term users it is common to experience severe confusion, memory loss and depression (this can happen weeks month and even years after taking the drug, but will not happen when under the influence of the substance) . This harmful chemical also adversely effects blood pressure and pulse rate (which in some cases may lead to death).

It is also important to note that the ecstasy one gets on the streets may not be composed of only MDMA which in many cases may increase ones risk of overdose, unpleasant side effects and future mental disease.

Note everyone reacts differently to Ecstasy (in terms of side effects possibility of overdosing, and future mental illnesses )
