Past experiences: marijuana, alcohol, dxm, amphetamine, diphenhydramine.
It all started when I needed to study for semester exams. I looked through the cabinets in hopes to find a stimulant (that of which is not caffeine, ephedrine) but I instead came across my brothers old Methylphenidate for ADD (Ritalin). I read up online shortly after insufflating the crushed up pills. The reports scared me, but I continued to do it.
I used this drug everyday for about a month considering it made school EASY. I used 60 mg a day normally, the highest I went was 80mg, but I had a bad experience. So I read about addiction (Can't recall the source, I think CNN) and decided to quit. As opposed to some experiences I have read online, it was really easy to quit. Although there has never been addiction in my family... But I must say that all I felt was mild anxiety and sleepiness for at most two days. Marijuana helped that and after three days I was normal.
