Ok this is a good question. What do you lot think the consequences of Ecstasy abuse will be when we are all old and grey? I mean i done probally about 40 pills in about 7 months of drug using. i dunno how bad im going to be when im old? do u think just 1 will hurt you? I have done most drugs apart from speed and heroin but i wonder what the most harmful was?

    Truth is no one really knows what the consequences and effects will be because no one has got to that stage yet.
    No one will properly know the answers till our generation grow up, so for another 10, 20 mebe 30 years.

    People can only guess what will happen, some people believe u will become more depressed and feel less happy in later life.
    Some believe you will be fine.

    In my opinion i dont think it will effect u in later life much, as soon as u stop using the drugs ur body will mend itself and any problems u get off the drug will only be felt in this "mending" period.
    The more pills u take now the worse that mending period will be, with depression being the main culprit, and other things like sleeping problems

    taking just 1 pill in ur life will do nothing to ur body

    as for most harmful drug i dunno, doin them just once prolly wont be harmful. It when u constantly use them, and if u do this the most addictive ones like heroin and crack are, i think

    hope this helped answer sum questions

    I am prepared for health consequences further down the line, i accept that as a regular user of ecstasy there is a possibility that damage to my seretoinin receptors will occur. However i'm far from convinced that any such damage will be significant, people have been using ecstaty since the late 80's, those who used it at that point during the 'acid rave' phase have had few or no problems since, this is now over 20 years ago, that takes me to forty straight away, once at forty your starting to get to the point in life where slowly things go wrong <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">. Now most people go through depression at some point in life, to blame the depression of ecstasy users on the fact they've used e is very pressuming, especially as those who haven't used it get depressed regardless.

    Very little credible research has been undertaken in this field, those studies which state ecstaty might have long term health consequences are almost exclusively funded by the government or alcohol companies, which is very conveinient when you consider both have strong reasons to find fault in its use <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Thats not to say they are wrong, we just don't know, but i feel as time goes on its becoming clearer and clearer the 80's generation aren't suffering the type of problems present research suggests, i ceratinly don't suffer from the short term effects we hear about, my short term memory hasn't been affected, my sleeping patterns settle to normal after 48 hours, i don't get long spells of depressions (although wednesdays are a bit 'dull'!) and i certainly don't end up in intansive care on a weekly basis, or ever in fact.

    So although i'm prepared for long term damage, i'm not to worried anything significant will become of it <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Well Alexander Shuguin has tested that many chemicals on himself and hes still alive, also bear in mind many people from the 60s took drugs and they are still here... as long as you don't abuse I don't think that much harm can come from it (obviously there are acceptions, don't get me wrong)

    I've done almost all things, except heroin, many repeatidly.. uh-oh...

    We are a chemical generation
