20 mg insufflated Amphetamines (ground / crushed)


I am a fairly experienced psychonaut, having experimented with many drugs. I have smoked marijuana a little over two years now, tripped on DXM on several occasions. I've done Vicodon, Percocets and Oxycodone. I have smoked Salvia Divinorum several times, among others too numerous to mention. I have never been addicted to any substance, however I could have gotten hooked on Oxycodone had I not been a strong-willed person.

Friday I had been expecting to get some oxycodone from a buddy of mine. He couldn't get any Oxycodone, but he had procured two Adderall XR 20mg. I had never done a stimulant before, so I was pretty excited to see where it got me. I wouldn't take them untill my second period class, science. I planned to give one to a friend of mine, which happens to be a girl that I'm very close to, on the verge of dating.

I arrived in that class and wasted little time. I talked to her (call her K) and explained my intentions. Needless to say she was very excited. I went to the bathroom and railed one, and saved the other for her. I noticed effects immediately, I became twitchy and excited. On the walk back to my classroom I felt I had tons of energy and experieced euphoria. So far so good.

I returned to class and glanced over at K. She grinned mischeivously and I glowed from that simple eye contact. I knew I was in for a good time. I gave her the other Adderall and she left for the bathroom to rail it. While she was gone I went to talk to the dude who sold them too me. I was glad, because the period was to be spent working on projects with partners, so we could be very social.

She returned and we sat down together. We were talking and the effects intensified. I was very speedy and social. I felt like my very personality was intensified two-fold. I was very connected to K. I was more focused then I have ever been, our conversation was incredible. We were very affectionate, and it felt great. The euphoria became more intense, I was at peace and well-being. We ignored our project for a while, and when the teacher attempted to redirect us I felt a rush of aggression. I quickly got over it with K's help.

We worked on our project, and boy did we get shit done. I was vety focused on our work, and it was a breeze. We were creating an invented ecosystem, with created organisms. We were very creative, and it was incredibely fun. The entire time I was very social, talking to K and several others. Normally I wouldn't be able to work at the level I was and be as social as I was at the same time, but thanks to the speed it was no problem.

As the period winded down I was becoming increasingly social. I was talking at a mile a minute, and it was very enjoyable. However before long I ran into a problem. There is some bad blood between K's ex and I, and it got worse. He is very jealous of me, and he saw me and K were enjoying ourselves, and he guessed by my behaviour we were on speed, since he is also a drug user. He told some people he was going to beat my ass and I heard this from some buddies of mine. I felt another rush of aggression, and it was difficult to control, even with K there.

I couldn't stop staring him down, and I wanted to fight him. I'm not an aggressive person, but the speed increased the aggression. I managed to avoid a fight, and we went to lunch.

I sat with K and attempted to eat, but I had no appetite and I was still peaking on the speed. We continued our social explosion, migrating around the cafeteria to other tables and talking to several people. I felt great, but I soon became aware the effects were wearing off. Lunch ended and we went to the library for study hall.

I don't remember much of this, since I was crashing. I didn't feel sick, just very tired. I nodded off several times, and K had to wake me a few times. The rest of the day consisted of me crashing. At gym I decided to work out hard anyway, I lifted weights hard. I lifted more than usual, and I attribute that to the speed.

All in all it was a great day. Despite the crash I love Adderall. The feeling is amazing, well worth the lethargy that accompanies the come-down. I will more than likely continue to use it, but cautiously. I can definetlty see the addiction potential. It is great for socializing and connecting with others, and amazing for getting work done. Easily one of my favorite drugs.
