i have been going to raves for about 2 years now. i first tried E last year. i took 2 pills to start off, then followed with another pill about 3 hours later. i was at a rave at the time and someone offered me a sniff off a vicks inhaler. in case you are not familiar with the vicks (very popular with the rave scene), it is a small tube filled with the vicks vapo rub that you stick up your nose and sniff. it is usally used to get rid of a cold or for allergies. well the feeling you get from sniffing the vicks with on E is so incredible, words cant explain it. i loved the feeling so much that i was sniffing the vicks every five minutes. that went on all night. at one point one of my friends told me to lay off or i would have a sore nose in the morning. but i ignored her, thinking that a sore nose was a mere price to pay for the feeling of pleasure the vicks brought. well the next afternoon when i finally woke up, my nose was a little red and runny but nothing too serious.
now lets skip to the following week. not only were my nostrils flaming red and running like crazy, i had a horrible head cold and sinus pain. i waited for it to go away, but a month later i finally went to the doctors. now about a year later i still have the same symptoms. its like having terrible allergies 24/7. i found out that i have severe nasal and sinus damage and permanant loss of smell. the runny nose has subsided some due to my medication, but i will never be the same again. just because of the one night i over-over did it with the vicks. and its so easy to do. you get caught up in the moment and forget how much you are actually doing. i still do E every now and then. i think its fun and enjoyable, but i will never ever do the vicks again. i urge all the ravers and people getting started with E to listen to my words carefully.
