Ecstasy / Chemicals - The Comedown

Post by jonny » Thu Feb 09, 2012 9:47 pm

This may sound like a strange one from someone like myself who was previously a long term heavy E and chemical user but back in the day i was so used to the dreaded comedown in the first few years anyway was never as bad, obviously as time goes on and as consumption went up and up it was at times pretty bad some really bad mornings but as i said i was used to it and just carried on relentlessly, but anyway cut to the chase as i very rarely ever indulge anymore Retro Trax will probably be my last ever big one and i want to do it in style and get absolutely mullered for the 2 days, but then i have to fly back to Dublin or head back to Leeds and that is where the comedown will kick in and at my age i couldn't be dealing with it as it'll take me a good 5+ days to get over something as big as this so is there anything availabe online or even in chemists thesedays that can help you, ive done some research and come up with this, has anyone any recommendations, im not expecting to feel bright eyed and bushy tailed after 2 days of raving but as long as im not totally screwed and can function that will do for me.


anyone know about / recommend this or anything else?
cheers

Eight cans of Holstein Pils and a henry.

That used to do the trick...

haha yes at one time something along those lines would have been my choice for the comedown too but id feel even worse if i done that now, this 5HTP looks good from what ive been reading so far,im a bit wary to buy on eBay but these pills aint cheap in places like Holland and Barrett £14.99 for 50, has anyone else tried them>

I've been using 5HTP on and off as I suffer from occasional hangover-induced anxiety attacks. Since I've started using it I've been much better. So, yeah, I recommend! Get some from H&B and start using them a week or so before. Perhaps only every other day?

Other than that valium or Xanax is what you want although obviously hard to get hold of!

Isn't milk thistle supposed to be the celebrity cure for everything?

no, but there's is some evidence that it's a good 'antioxidant' (if you like) for the liver. Although studies vary.

Take care with those bad boys if your caining the sauce as well... looks like Whitney is yet another celeb to succumb to the prescription drugs. Should have stuck to the hard stuff like Ronnie Wood she'd be fine.

Actually.. does anyone else think Ronnie Wood looks like that 5000 year old bloke they found in a glacier? I think glacier man probably looks better...

well yeah, not the sort of thing to take when you're hammered.


Especially when you're in a bath.

well 5HTP it is then, ill start taking one a day a few days before the event and maybe take 2 the first night when it's finished then top up again the day after the event is over and hopefully i wont feel like death warmed up.

If you're thinking of how bad the comedown will be, and you're thinking of getting mad stuff to aid that comedown, don't you think that you'd be better off NOT getting spangled?

Or just do the weed + beer trick that DD said. ;-)

5HTP is an amino acid that is used in the production of serotonin and melatonin. So it's affective as a 'mood improver' and can help sleep patterns - hopefully it will help you Jonny.

It's not 'mad stuff' by any means.

when i went to fantazia last year i just bought a load of ale in for the day after to take the edge of the come down, then drunk a smaller amount the following night. by the 3rd night (at least for me) your fine and dandy and back to normal again without the need to drink anymore.

make a few banana smoothies on top of what your having as they boost up your serotonin too

Banana smoothies sounds much more sensible.

weed and beer isn't an option when you have to travel and as i said it would only make me feel worse, im 41 now not 21 so i am seriously not able for it anymore so 5htp is the only way
