    The difference between Base & Speed is simple, Base is the pure rock form of speed which usually comes in a pure white/yellow rock. The rock should have a apparent smell and when cut should cut like a smooth paste, this shows the quality of the drug.

    Speed is the street form of base. When base is bought dealers tend to mix it up with other chemicals such as glucose too help double their money increasing the existing batch, speed is dirty shit as you dont know what its been mixed with.

    I hope this has made sense, if your after a stimulant id suggest base, i take it quite a lot and its definetly my favorite high.

    Favourite high <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> I personally wouldn't suggest either, 'phet' is pretty nasyt, especially the comedown!

    Its good to keep you going and when you have some champange it really gets you rushing...

    I don't find the comedown too bad, I usually end up an insomniac for 48hrs and then crashing for about 14hrs sleeping...

    I prefer 'P', puff a bit of 'P' and then off you go and do your pill or whatever..

    ... and with every session its not complete without NOS!!!

    I used to do loads of base, but the comedown eventually catch's up with ya.
    Now I share a gram with my g/f on friday night and find myself still feeling wasted the next thursday...
    Theres always the answer of getting through the comedown by taking more.

    I reckon there are better things to do.

    Base is definately my prefered drug simply because it doesn't totally screw with your head like pills do (well mine anyway!) that's not to say that I don't sometimes like that but as the song goes you can very easily get "totally addicted to base" which although beneficial to ones waist line can cause illness and poverty!! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I have been taking Base for the last 8yrs. I started on 1g every Friday for Clubbing purposes and now I'm on 1/8th oz every day! I have never had what you could call a "Bad" comedown,admittedly,I do feel a wee bit tired after about 5 days without sleep but HEY!...That's the price you pay! I would definately say that Base is THE drug for going out on,but it CAN be VERY overpowering for some people so my advice would be...DON'T go out Clubbing on your first go on it. See wether you're suited beforehand,or you MAY regret it! <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I'd say you pay in more ways than that. You're doing stupid amounts mate and really are doing yourself harm carrying on like that.

    That's addiction!

    do you not think youve got a problem madhatter? im only saying this as that is exactly what me and my husband were like for many years. at first its great but your body actually forgets how to stay awake on its own. i guess you wont come off the stuff until you really need to, for me and my husband it was me getting pregnant that made us finally give up, and its so great now. we can actually feel good without speed, and have normal proper feelings. its so hard to explain, it just hits home somebody saying that and sounding so upbeat about it because ive experienced the reality and its really dangerous addictive stuff.

    Taking that much speed is so dangerous, I overdosed on a combination of speed and pills one evening when I was feeling really down...

    6 Pills and £40 worth of wraps along with a fair whack of alcohol, it was horrible.. I couldn't move my arms or talk properly, I kept sniffing and thinking I was going to collapse, having hallucinations and so unbelievably paranoid thinking everyone was talking about me and the like! I ended up having several friends take me home and spend the night monitoring me (and that time was spent standing at the toilet trying to teach myself to piss again.. very strange) Even for several days after.. muttering to myself and shit...

    Speed is a dangerous drug, in your qualitity its very dangerous to your health and your mental state. Skive is (as usual) right again in saying that your useage characterises addiction.

    Speed is so addictive, even though I hardly touch the stuff anymore I get dreams from time to time where I have it and wake up rushing and in a sweat, thats quite frightening really...

    I'm not here trying to lecture more to give advise and just saying be careful. You never think something bad is going to happen to you until it does...

    Concerned. <IMG SRC="cool.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
