    Literally half of the people I've met in uni take this drug. How on earth can people still be mentally coherent??

    Because it doesn't actually screw you up (apart from the comedown- think really really really bad hangover, but it's possible to reduce it through various means), and it's SO AWESOME as a drug. Seriously- it's so much fun! Don't knock it til you've tried it.

    You must be quite ignorant if you think taking MDMA makes you less "mentally coherent" (whatever that means)

    Because its a whole lot of fun, and occasional use doesn't do much harm at all.

    Because the first time they do it they get an amazing experience which stays with them for the rest of their life. They then try to recreate this every subsequent time they take it and it is never quite the same. After a while they will start finding that their comedowns are worse and the highs become hit or miss, so usually they end up drifting away from using it.

    So what constitutes as an amazing night? If you have no control over yourself you could easily land yourself into a lot of trouble, i.e fighting someone or injuring yourself really badly...

    I've never tried it but it certainly seems a lot safer than alcohol.

    it enhances your experience rather than taking control of you, e.g. you're much more impacted by lights and music, you're much happier, your inhibitions are lower, its why its suited to clubs etc, just transforms the whole night into something almost shamanic and euphoric

    You don't forget who you are and go mental for 3 hours as you seem to feel one does, and rather than making one more likely to start fights you become a lot calmer and confident

    But you can be physically addicted to it right? I've got a friend who told me he HAS to have mdma when he goes clubbing.

    It was an idiot acquaintance who thought it would be "funny" to see what happened to me. Admitted it the following day after finding out how worried my actual friends were getting at the state of me after drinking 2 bottles of VK (I'm a pint drinker so VK barely touches me :p: )

    I dunno why anyone was panicking, I was loving it
