3-fpm was the first RC speed I ever tried. It was still quite new at the time and went for next to nothing--it was something like $9 a gram back when it first came out, so when we got over our better judgement a friend and I began dosing with it.
I was the first one to try it when we'd finally gotten the gaul to order a gram of 3-fpm from a reputable vendor, I cut out a moderate line, rolled a piece of paper up and tooted a 30mg line.
Wow. This shit hurts.
I actually teared up on the side I'd insufflated the 3-fpm with--Jesus it hurt--but it faded very quickly and a pleasant talkative and social wave came on, lasting a little under an hour
I then tried 3-fpm orally and fell deeply in love with the chemical. It lasted hours longer when eaten than snorted and didn't overwhelm with it's pleasant stimulant qualities, it makes the user quicker and more precise...making it an excellent choice for a productive stimulant as it's quite strong but never gets Sketchy.
There are drawbacks though; for one the main effect is much shorter than 3-fpm's overall physiological effect. Meaning the drug will have long worn off cognitively before it starts to ease up on the body. This is a find day time drug, but for me is was inadvisable to take the chem after 3 or 4 in the afternoon if I had to be up the next morning. Insomnia is a real issue with 3-fpm and care must be taken when the user doses with 3-fpm.
I began with smaller doses in gelcaps, About 50mgs for a little kick. But 3-fpm is pretty fiendish and my doses soon got out to 100 and even 150mgs to see how far I could go. I developed a tolerance pretty quickly, and would take upward of 450mgs a day (3x 150mg capsules a day).
I began to develop anxiety issues with such high doses and began taking etizolam when I would get too worked up.
I was getting the phenethylamine blues pretty regularly, and misery permeated everything I did. Still, I kept on taking "3" as I came to call it, even as I recognized it as the main roblem with my anxiety and depression. I decided to quit about then--and lucky I did. 3-fpm has steadily risen in price since I gave it up and it now goes for upwards of $45 a gram...that same weird stuff we did in 2015 for a few cents a hit was gaining popularity and now costs about the same as a lame half gram of coke.
In closing, 3-fpm is pretty habit forming but not a terribly hard one to break--it's pretty pricey these days though.
