For reference, the drugs I've tried are this one, marijuana, alcohol, nitrous, vicodin and valium.
Last night, I acquired 60 mg of Adderall pills (15 mg. tablets, the pinkish circle kind that say 1|5 on them) from someone I know. I research most anything I take ahead of time, so I know what to expect. After reading the drug information and a few experiences, I decided that I would take them in the next morning, since I didn't have to work on that day. That day is today. I awoke at about 12 pm, ate a banana, and since I was in a good mindset, I took 45 mg at about 1:00 pm.
Some friends picked me up at this time, and after being at my friends house for around an hour and a half, I noticed some strange sensations began. I was talking online on my friends computer, and I was very very social. I wanted to talk to everyone on my buddylist. I juggled 4 conversations, whereas I usually don't have more than 2. I was typing incredibly fast. I definitely felt different physically, too. My heart rate rose, and I sort of felt light to moderate euphoria.
I took 15 more mg at around 3 o clock, wanting to get rid of the rest of the Adderall without wasting it, and ate another banana. My friends and I ran some errands, and eventually ended up at where I work. I was very talkative to coworkers, and noticed I was sort of jittery, and I talked very fast if I didn't control my verbal speed. Having been under influences in front of people many times before, I'm pretty confident that they didn't notice, so I guess this influence is relatively easy to hide without too much trouble.
After leaving my work, we went to the local mall. I was talkative there too. I sometimes felt like I was talking more than all of three of my friends put together. I bought a jamba juice there. While riding in my friend's car a while later, probably 7:00 pm, I noticed that my armhair felt tingly, and this sensation grew with time. Like someone else on an experience I read, I felt sort of flattered that other people were talking to me, that they found me interesting and wanted to communicate with me.
At 9 pm I was dropped off at my house. I worked on my car for a couple hours, cleaning it, and finishing up some other work I'd been doing on it. It was pretty satisfying cleaning my car, way more than usual, and I noticed that I felt sort of meticulous attention to detail. I vacuumed everywhere the vacuum hose would access, and picked out peices of lint from my carpet.
At about 12 am, after my car was pretty clean, I talked to my uncle for a while. I was still very social and pretty energetic at this time. I started thinking to myself that I should be prepared to crash, since it should happen soon. I didn't crash then. I did, however, go into my room.
I sat down at my computer, glanced over the drug info again, and talked to more people. After a few minutes, I noticed I was having minor chest pain, specifically in my heart. I told myself that it was probably because my heart was beating hard the whole time I was on this trip, and my heart wasn't used to that, so it was alright. I talked to my friend Mike about it, and he agreed to hang out with me so that I wouldn't be alone while this happened. I read on another experience that eating can help with the 'coming down' of an amphetamine high, so I made some macaroni and cheese. Usually, I can down an entire box by myself, but I ate roughly 1/10th of the box. I threw the rest out.
1:30 am I didn't feel I'd be able to sleep, so I went cruising around a bit more with a friend (I wasn't driving) which was pretty uneventful, except I noticed I had to take deep breaths once in a while to stave off the heart discomfort. I also bought some beef jerky, at one point. My euphoria died down at around 2ish, and so at 3 I told him he could drop me off because I would probably be able to sleep now.
He dropped me off at 3:30 am. I took a shower and here I am now. I feel like I've come off the trip, and I will probably be able to sleep. The heart discomfort has dissipated. In retrospect, all I had to eat today was two bananas, a jamba juice, and a bag of beef jerky. I drank a good amount of water the whole time, so I had a very low calorie intake today. I'm going to bed now and I'll probably wake up hungrier than a mofo.
