I've always liked good old-fashioned speed: amphetamines. My first use was forty-five years ago. The stuff was prescribed for weight-loss and a general pick-me-up for those people complaining of feeling tired all the time. This complaint is one of doctors' recurring annoyances (TATT is often scribbled on offending patients' medical files) and they were prescribing the stuff hand over fist. Some of it trickled down via friends' mums and various fat buddies.

Purple Hearts were wonderful. A mix of dexamphetamine and barbiturates. There were also Black Bombers (time-release spansules), Blues. In Spain (in my hippie period in the late sixties) there were Minilips and some other tabs I can't remember. I loved them. A buddy of mine took them all the time when he was working as a milkman while studying for his PhD.

So where have they gone? The last time I had any speed worth talking about was about forty years ago. This is London, by the way. So when I read about Mephedrone, I thought 'Aha! If this is good stuff, I'm going to buy a kilo to last me the rest of my life.' I'm the wrong side of sixty, so it would serve.

I bought a gramme, mail order, just in case it was crap. Legal Highs -- and I haven't had that much success in finding anything legal that works the way I'm hoping.

I did the gramme in a day. Not bad, but it didn't get me that energised - it was just rather nice. So I ordered another five grammes from a different source. I've just had the last of it. It lasted three days. Am I going to get any more? No. It took me round the houses to get to that, but there you go.

I know that nostalgia ain't what it used to be, but I'm clear on this - Mephedrone ain't worth it. Mind you, no hangover and no insomnia. I fell asleep yesterday afternoon after doing about a quarter of a gramme.

So, quite a nice feeling, but six grammes in four days - 75. Hmm... Not worth it. Nope - I won't be doing it again.
