Meth sold as Molly MDMA
My friend and I frequently go to bars and clubs every weekend. We normally just drink alcohol and snort some cocaine. This weekend, we decided to do what we thought was molly. This 'molly' came in a crystal form, which was new to me. I've done molly at least 20 times and it has always came in a small clear capsule or colorful pressed, circular tablet. After doing some research online, it seems like molly can come in a crystal form, of course so does methamphetamine. It is crushed and put into capsules for us and our friends to take along with us.
0:00 I take the first capsule in the bathroom.
0:30 No effects yet. My friend and I decide to go back outside to the car to get another capsule. We both take another capsule. His 3rd, my 2nd.
0:45 I begin feeling the uplifting effects that an amphetamine produces, but something is different. I figure this out when the comedown begins.
1:00 I feel very positive and very good. This is similar but distinct euphoria, but it is not MDMA. It never occurred to me to think of how different this high was from my previous experiences with molly. For beginners, MDMA (molly) is a very euphoric drug that produces empathy and a good, clean, positive feeling for 3-5 hours. The comedown is immediate. Recovery takes about a day, and I can fall asleep when the night is over. Meth is a dirty drug, that takes away empathy and empowers one's ego. The euphoria is similar to MDMA minus the empathy. Essentially I feel like a selfish version of superman for approximately 6-7 hours.
2:30 We go to another club, and people are looking at me. I'm new to the town, and I consider myself very attractive, so I am soaking up all the attention I am getting. Normally this is not like myself as I usually do not make eye contact and refrain from being touchy-feely and making useless conversation. Meth completely changed my personality. In this moment, I was an outgoing, and desirable person in this club. I made eye contact with everyone. The downside was the person I came with became very jealous. Of course, being on meth, I completely lacked empathy. I could care less what he thought of me. He was also on the same capsules, and at this point he was completely paranoid that I was going to give out my number to someone else or sneak into the bathroom to perform sexual favors. I was eyeing one very attractive dancer, who was clearly interested in me. We chatted alot. I believed he was under the influence of a stimulant as well. While chatting away, I was ignoring the guy I originally came with, my back turned to him. Please note this is completely NOT my personality. MDMA does not make me do this.
6:30 The night did not end well, and needless to say the recovery was extremely difficult. We realized the molly was meth when we could not go to sleep and the effects lasted much longer than normal. Throughout the night I had attempted to pee, but nothing would come out although the pressure was there. It was extremely uncomfortable. When I got home, I sat on the toilet for 3 hours trying to empty my bladder (what normal person sits on a toilet for 3 hours??, but oh, the time went by SO quickly). After that episode, I lay on my carpeting for 4 hours, awake. As soon as I lift my head, I notice my left eyelid is swollen and my left calf muscle is completely NUMB. At this point I'm freaking out. I have mistakenly taken meth instead of molly. I have no idea what is going on and I am lightheaded beyond belief. I fear I am going to have a heart attack or stroke. I take a hot shower and that seems to relieve the swollen eyelid a bit, but I take Zyrtec just in case it is due to allergy. I also take an aspirin on a whim in hopes to prevent a heart attack. It has been about 24 hours since I dosed off the capsules, and all that's left of me is an empty shell.

I feel like a zombie. Drained. Emotionless. Confused. Disappointed.
I never believed a drug could completely change a personality until I experienced meth. It gave me a HUGE ego and made me feel invincible. The comedown and side effects are horrific and not worth the high!
