Time,after time,after time u hear in the press about the "killer drug" ecstacy,what a load of bolloxs.It has been proven that MDMA is not likely to kill! and that you r more likely to be killed walking down the street.The teenager Leah Betts only died because her dumb friends fed her full of water when her liver failed causing water to fill up round her brain and hemorage,her death was'nt caused by ecstacy directly but her ill-educated friends.Another fact is that in the past ten years only 14 people have died from taking E in Europe,thats very little compared with the 800,000 people that die a year in europe from smoking.Ecstacy is safe and is not something to worry about as long as u know what u r doing,i know what i am talking about as i am a regular user and i have never had a bad experience.
Cheers anyway!!!

Hello, miss 'i'm so cool and clued up on drugs, you can't possibly argue with me because i've given you loads of facts'.

Its people like you that get others into trouble, fine your body doesn't react badly to E but somebody else's might and you saying its safe us totally incomprehendable, why are people constantly collapsing in clubs etc, because people like you tell the culture of today that to be aprt of your little cool gang they need to do what you do, that's rubbish!!!!

So stop banging on about how great you are because nobody cares!!!!!!

Wake up and smell the coffee!!!!

Listen "Hardcore_Raver"...I bet you do not even touch the stuff.

I also find it very saddening to see you further blacken a death of someone who fell trouble to "E."

Please take your shite to the toilet, mate.

Ok I agree XTC is safe..... Leah Betts died cos of the effects of XTC.... the real reson for this is that she took 2 100% pure MDMA pills... Now I take E all the time I wouldn't dare take 1 whole 100% pure pills... known as Flatliners due to the fact they can make ur heart stop... most Pills have somewhere around 2-10% MDMA in them the rest can be n e thing from caffeine to Herion but more likely Amphetimine which is the thing that causes u to rush n gurn which is 2 of the main things associated with pills... Taking pure MDMA is nothing like pilling it's different makes u wanna sit down and chill and b happy but u still wanna move and drink...

Itís dangerous to assume that any ecstasy tab is safe. For a start thereís no way of knowing what levels of MDMA itís going to contain, and this will have a huge influence on the nature and the strength of the effects. Your state of mind at the time will also play a part, as will your physical condition and the environment youíre in. So if youíre going to do it, at least be aware of the facts, including the risks involved.

I am sorry for upsetting anyone.Firstly,
FLATLINERS r not MDMA but a drug called 4TMA which is a BRONCHODILATOR & contains traces of EPHEDRINE which when mixed together affects the central nervous system(hence the MDMA effect)and causes a dangerous rise in blood pressure,fits,hallucation's and a loss of breath.It is a dangerous drug and i think it should not be in circulation & IS NOT ECSTACY.Secondly,ALL good quality pills are 100% MDMA but-it depends how many mg's r in that pill.The average good quality pill contains approx 70mg's of MDMA & the good pill's(the old dove's) contains approx 120mg's of MDMA.Most pills r just MDMA alone but some have non-lethal mixes of approx 70mg of MDMA 10mg of AMPHETAMINES & a small ammount of CAFFINE or KETAMINE(This is what makes u trip).I have never known HEROIN to be in ecstacy pills as it does'nt mix well with GELATIN(a binder)in the making of ECSTACY PILLS.Thirdly i would like to say sorry about the last posting as i never realised how it was put when u read it(if u know what i mean).What i was trying to say is that everything in life is a risk,like taking e,but it is'nt likely to kill,u but it could.Just like when u walk out of your front door,it is'nt likely to kill u,but it could!Check out http://ecstacy.org/testing/index.html for everything u need to know about E.
Thanks again anyway!!!

Hmm in response to ur previous posting.... Flatliners r considered as Ecstasy and 4TMA is different to flatliners...
If u have ever tested pills u will find that high amounts of MDMA is not common....
I'll give u a link to a site when I find it where they laboratry tested over 40 different pills in England and the results shocked me and I'm sure they'll shock u if u believe that u get 70% MDMA in pills
Heroin in my area SE England is very common in pills as due to the addictiveness of it will make people go back for more... If u've ever done pure MDMA then u will know Speed makes u gurn much more than MDMA does...
I usually test a pill now b 4 taking the rest of the batch n e way and only 1ce have I seen any pill with over 50% MDMA in it....
In my opinion any way this isn't to bad cos the perfect pill for me is a 30% MDMA mix with coke and amphetimines in....

No drugs r safe, but then crossing the road isn't safe walking out ur front door isn't safe, standing in the sun isn't safe in fact breathing isn't even safe.
U sound like ur a bit boring to be honest.. Part of the thrill with drugs is the risk.. like bungee jumping n other sports like that they rn't safe... ppl do the though cos of the adrenaline rush knowing u might die... The risks of dying of drugs vary but with light drugs like ecstacy and acid... even coke has like 1 in a million chances of dying and if u know the guy ur getting it off it's even more likely to b safe so the odds will go down to lottery odds...
The reason why drugs r seen as 'bad' nowadays is not cos ppl can die it's cos of the long term effects... depression mental ilnesses body disfunctions and things like that... also the addiction can turn ur life into shit... That's the arguement against drugs not that u can die

ok here's an opinion, and remember, it is just an opinion. Many drugs, including e's, are safe when they are cut with things like milk powder and not things like ratsack, concrete etc. so in order to have standardised tablets without the risk or arsenic or the like, governments should legalise drugs...it also kills buisness for Drug Lords who prey on innocent people. Also e's aren't all that dangerous (by that i mean it's not addictive (which has been proven), it won't kill you when cut right and when ppl know what they're doing). Ever heard the saying knowledge is power, this is the case with e's, take half, wait half an hour, then take the other half and drink 500mL of water an hour, and everything is sweet :) promise

All this post really prooves is everyone has different oppinions and everyone is intitled to that! Is there really any point arguing about wether drug r good or bad...there is no answer coz everyone thinks differently. The fact is drugs aint good for u, nether is drink or smoking or eating too many fatty food lmao! You either like drugs or u dont simple as that. You could go on and on about the good and bad point with drugs and give all the statistics but at the end of the day it wont stop those people out there that r totally against them from hating them still, just as it wont make people that like em stop taking them.
Me personally I no that drugs aint good for u, but I also no that in moderation the chances of them killing me r slim (but there is still that chance). Also nobody really knows the long term affects, it is still pretty unknown...in a few years time all us drug takers could be growing spikes outta our backs (as eminem says nicely!). Im a hipocrite really, Ive seen people get fucked up on heroin and watch the state a friend of mine gets in constantly with cocaine and crack and it really upsets me, yet I still dabble myself. God, Ive even been bad with drugs myself but I still do them here and there. But to me I dont see that any more worse than going out and getting rat-arsed drinking.
My point with this post is really that there is no wrong or right when it comes to drugs and this argument will never be won, purely coz everyone will always have different oppinions.
One more thing, if u can have a good time without drugs then go ahead coz u r much better off...but I feel the same way towards drinking. Those people out there who r happy to go out on nothing, good luck to u all coz I wish I could have such a cheap nite <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif">

Your best asking people about ones they find good before hand...

For example, I'd avoid ones with blue speckles as experiences I've had with them are dodgy, I always find they are really mongy ones...

Ones which are quite hot round the Blackpool area at the moment are:

Medusa's
X-Files (Triangular Shaped Ones)
Mobile Phones
Mitzi's

Just make sure your with people you trust when you take anything like that, in case something goes wrong...
Experiences are usually down to a persons frame of mind at the time, just remember to drink about a pint of water/fruit juice an hour, but sip it, avoid alcohol (as it dehydrates you) and make sure your confident in what your doing beforehand.... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif">

Taking drugs is a choice, everyone has the choice to take them or not, everyone knows and has been warned the dangers of them - But personally, I don't condone taking any drugs at all, and my best advice to anyone would be stay well away from them. It's a mugs game.
In my lifetime I've only ever TRIED (I stress the word TRIED, I wasn't hooked!) cannabis...I didn't like it, it didn't do anything for me so I didn't take smoking pot any further! I'm not boasting about it and I ain't proud at all, I was stupid and naive and gave in to peer pressure <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">

I think people need to educate themselves about anything they use or are thinking of using. In order to get the best experience wait a while between pills and make sure the environment is best for the feeling you want to have. Stay cool. Be aware. Drugs are like the dessert of life... too much will make you sick.

It's more dangerous walking down the road than it is to take a pill. It is the fault of the society we live in that this is not made obvious, if it was people would not become nervous and scared while pilling and manage to drown themselves...

Everything in life is risky, if noone took risks we'd be living in an empty world. I'm not saying do pills or other drugs for that matter i'm just saying make the most of it, to move forward risks must be taken. I apologise that nearly everything i've just said is a cliche of some sort but hey! it's pretty bludy difficult to come out with anything new nowadays isn't it!

If you ask me, anything that can make you see and feel nothing but beauty, can make you bond with people you've never met, can make two men hug! is a good thing...only problem is no good thing is meant to last long, so don't overdo it!, i did and do.

I didnt say that so certainly at all, because ofcourse they have their good points or else nobody would bother with them would they! But they r hardly healthy for u now r they, just like taking too many paracetamol aint healthy! At the end of the day drugs, whether legal or not legal all have their bad side and most illegal drugs all have some kinda downside to them.

"walking down the street is bad for you, so taking E is ok"... that's like saying you could get hit by lightning so it's ok to go jump off a bridge. Just because one thing is bad and most people do it doesn't mean that all bad things are alright. It's silly to use that argument. Just say "I know there's a risk but I'm willing to take it"... walking down the street and taking E have nothing to do with eachother.
I'm not saying E is the worst thing in the world, if you're educated and are careful, chances are everything will be alright.
I just think it's sad that people aren't content being in their right mind. I've never done drugs, and I really don't want to, simply because I'm happy the way I am. I'm also scared of relying on drugs to make me feel happy... I know drug highs aren't the same as natural highs, once you get a drug high nothing seems the same. And I've seen people get very fucked up by drugs. I know 2 people whose lives have been messed up because of heroin, and three because of acid.
Just remember that there's more to life than parties and drugs- right now, and in the future. You can have fun now and think you'll be young forever but one day you'll realize that's not all there is... make sure that when you get to that point you haven't screwed your life up permanently.

24-04-2001, 06:29 PM
At the end of the day its down to a persons choice, the vast majority of us are drug users in one form or another (be it socially acceptable users with smoking, caffine or alcohol or illegal users with ecstasy, phet or acid)... the one thing people need to realise is that its not going to go away, theres no point screaming from the hills and trying to use scare stories to stop people..

Indeed nothing is safe, but then with things that carry consiquence people should be ready to face up to it should that ever happen, possibly a solution to solve problems such as these would be to work on a licence, users must carry a licence and those who loose the licence or affect others should get stiffer penalties...

What needs to be brought to the attention tho is that these drugs are not going away... perhaps legalisation would mean these drugs could be better manufactured and therefore safer...

Maybe this country along with several others needs to start tackling it instead of trying to win a loosing battle by banning it... we all need to look at Switzerland and Holland more closely!

Sorry Hardcore_Raver but im going to have to disagree with you a bit! See when i was into drugs n shit a few years back, something happened to me&my friends that swore us of drugs for ever! We were out we had atleast 3E's between 5 of us, we were all takin it, and my friend Linz wasnt so we sort of dared her to, she wouldnt touch it, then we started like calling her names then,she took it! She was fine, but next morning me&my other friend went to get her up, but guess what she neva woke up.......
I know if you have pleanty of water and dont hydrate yourself its ok to take it, but your still at the risk of killing yourself

i suppose this is just another sad story of what ecstasy can do, and how it clearly isnt safe. there are ways of minimizing the risks, sure, but no absolute way of saying, im not gonna die, this is safe. coz its not.

Yeah might not have been and E as such but thats what it was bought as and coughin blood up aint a natural thing and its NOT safe!

Drugs fuck you up no matter what! and anyone who takes drugs and cant admit that to themselves is a prick and shouldnt be taking them! cos you obviously dont know what the fuck your doing to yourself and you obviously aint fucked up yet.

I'm happy with everyone and everyone who's pilling is happy too, unlike people who get pissed and always end up fighting or in trouble with the Law.

When I went to amsterdam a couple of years back you could buy flatliners in shops because they contained 4MTA which was legal at the time because the government hadn't come across it yet. It was still a new drug. People loved 'em at first like I did, they were like 5 or six times as strong as ecstasy but the buzz was a little diferent. Then people started dying in Britain and Holland and 4MTA is now illegal. It works in a totally diffenrent way to ecstasy.
As for people putting heroin and coke in pills. What a load of crap.
If I was manafacturing pills I would not go to the trouble of buying other illegal substances to put in it. Why would someone want to mix a more expensive drug with a drug they are making at probably 100th of the price. Dealers dont want to get people addicted like that. If the quality of the pills is good the dealer knows peolple are going to keep coming back to him. If he sells some dodgy ones word soon gets aroung and he's left with a bag of pills he'll find hard to sell.
I alway buy off dealers I know and have sold me good pills before. This is not a solouton but it's better than buying some dogy crumbling green speckled pill from some dodgy looking bloke at a rave for a tenner.
Take care.

Why not?

Because it is irrelevant now. Old threads are left as a reference point Ė if you are reading them and find something interesting you would like to discuss, you could start a new thread about it.

Three reasons for this:
1) if the thread is asking for advice, any help will be useless after a certain length of time because the problem will have been dealt with.
2) older posters get frustrated because they saw the thread the first time round, and have to read through it again to check they havenít replied before and that they arenít repeating another posterís comment.
3) newer posters get confused by all the old and ex posters who originally replied to the thread.

You should have a read of the Good Manners Guide (http://vbulletin.thesite.org.uk/showthread.php?s=&threadid=26852), which is where the above information is from.
