  repeated insufflated Methamphetamine (powder / crystals)

  T+ 9:00 0.5 joints/cigs smoked Cannabis  
Previous to this experience, I had never tried any form of crystal meth, though I had tried several other stimulants such as cocaine, various ADD medications, MDMA, MDA and caffeine.

I acquired .25 gram of what I was told was decent crystal meth. I had eaten before hand and drank coffee but had not indulged in any other drug prior to first meth insufflation.

3:00 PM: I cut a half inch long, thin line of the meth and snort it. It burns instantly and puts kind of a strange spin on how I'm seeing things, but nothing prominent enough for me to put into words. Around 30 minutes afterwards I start to feel my heart beating faster and notice a slight spike in body temperature.

3:45 PM: I go for a considerably smaller bump this time, less than a quarter inch long off the tip of a knife. This bump seems to really vamp up the stimulant warmth sensation, along with relatively intense wave of euphoria.

4:30 PM: Get out of shower feeling very different. Stimulant edge is very present, euphoria is present but not nearly as strong as moments after my second bump. I feel my heart beating very hard and decide to wait longer for the next one.

7:30 PM: Third bump off tip of knife. Much of the same feelings as were present with the previous bump. I've become very sweaty and I feel almost like I'm in a movie. There's a definite distance between me and the reality I know on sobriety that I can see will continue to get larger as I proceed. Decide to skip the NA meeting.

8:30 PM: Fourth bump. Beginning to have that feeling where I feel as though I'm living in a movie. When I walk I see different angles of myself walking. Brain activity is becoming very quick and jumbled.

9:00 PM: I am still very much wired and feeling most usual stimulant effects such as chain smoking cigarettes, occasional bouts of anxiety I can talk myself out of, dry throat and mouth, and a faint headache that I know is the result of involuntary jaw movement. I take another knife bump (#5). Body temp rises, slight head rush, slight euphoria rush,and then in minutes they pass and I am left feeling very wired and in a generally good mood.

10:00 PM: The last bump of the night I take before I leave for my house to try to smoke myself to sleep. Feeling a little strung out now, as in I can feel that I'm hungry and tired but really can't remedy either. Found immense pleasure in playing my banjo and singing. Had incredible sex. Girlfriend fell asleep.

12:00 AM: Smoke half a joint of very decent headie-grade marijuana. At this point I feel as though I'm still pretty much on the plateau of this high. With the only other person here asleep I revert back to what I usually revert back too when I take a stimulant; busy work. I research things I haven't, wrote emails I was behind on, etc... All the classic symptoms of speed are still prevalent, simply without an exciting rush. The marijuana helped me relax in any way I can. I feel more calm then before, but no less awake.

3:00 AM: Starting to feel what I assume are the beginnings of a very long come down. Feeling spacier, considerably less sharp, kind of drained but also still very wired. Ideal mindframe for minor auditory/visual hallucinations. I didn't experience any serious hallucination yet, but I'm very much choosing not to at this juncture.

6:00 AM: I begin writing a submission on this wild stimulant. I see why it has such large potential to make people binge, it's a high that is unmatched (as far as my experience) in duration. I am still quite high. Wired, but beginning to feel the actual sleepiness set in. I have reached the point where it's essentially up to me and the remaining half a joint to decide when I fall asleep. The amount I have left is not going to help me get through today very well, so I do not plan on doing the rest of it.

This drug is really, really not for the faint of heart. Seriously. If I had heart problems I'd stay far away from methamphetamine, because the most prominent physical feeling I felt was my heart thumping. But all in all it affected me how I expected it too, almost to a T.

In summary, meth is everything I expected. It's the super stimulant I was told about. Minor psychedelic twinges during the comedown not unlike a strong dose of adderall, head rush and wave of euphoria with each bump, and it lasts longer than any drug I've taken so far, with the exception of LSD and N-Bomb.
