Blissful Experience on Areca Husk

This is an experience on smoking Areca husk - Tl;Dr - extremely blissful - wouldn't recommend making it a habit though

7:00 am - I feel tired due to not getting enough sleep the previous night. Areca nuts are commonly chewed here in India; and I got a wild idea in my head - if the husk of the nut contains the same alkaloids, could I get high by smoking it? I got hold of some dry Areca husk I was going to throw away.
7:30 am - I roll up around 3 pinches of Areca husk in a piece of printer paper I had lying around and light it up. Immediately after the first puff, I felt a strong head rush ; quite similar to the one from tobacco - it is to be noted that I have a huge tolerance for the stuff and I have been chewing it 4 or 5 times a day for the past year or two.

7:32 am - I have taken about 4 or 5 puffs by now and I feel my body quivering in pleasure; sort of like a really good orgasm. I also feel really (like really) energetic and my mood is suddenly heavily uplifted. I smoke the rolled up "cigarette" for 2 more minutes before finishing the husk inside it.
8:00 am - I still feel intensely euphoric and experience goosebumps all over my body with the slightest touch. I listen to some rap and it sounds immensely better.

11:00 am - I can feel my energy levels coming down but the euphoria is still the same.
2:00 pm - Euphoria reduces slightly, I feel more and more tired. I fall asleep and get really vivid dreams.
5:00 pm - I wake up, refreshed and still slightly euphoric. I feel slightly happy and quite relaxed throughout the day till I go to sleep at 10:00 pm.

In India, the husk is usually thrown away.
