    I did a lot of water treatment work which made it easy to order all kinds of shit. I was careful with precursors and batched the stable compounds. I had clean crystals forming on a glass plate. Since I was in sales my days off were in the middle of the week. So I could stink up a whole apartment building without complaints. At one point it was costing me around $5 a gram to make. I never sold it, it was all for me.

      Yeah, other than prescribed Ritalin in my late teens I never got into it. I've seen it fuck up a lot of people though. Enough to tell me to stay away from it.

        That's why I never got into heroin, I saw the damage it did. Speed had a whole different persona. Speed may kill, but amphetamines kill very slowly.

          I wish horrible outcomes upon the doctors and therapists who push amphetamines onto children. Even worse ones upon those who push hormone blockers.

            No shit. I can't fathom how anyone can justify the Mengele-esque experimentation on children, by doctors. The only difference is that today the children aren't kidnapped. They're presented for experimentation by their parents. Kind of a double-dose of betrayal these children will grow up to realize.

            Makes me wonder if the confluence on the 21st will be foretelling.

              This current generation of young adults were the 1st ADHD generation that they began experimenting on as early as 1987. Sadly I was part of that experimentation, and was told I couldn't function in society without meds from an early age, and I believed it. The double-dose betrayal sure hit pretty hard. I can't imagine how the children of today will turn out, after so many are being convinced they were born the wrong gender.

              And yet, gender is just a social construct, but trans people were born into the wrong body?

              My brother was a ritalin kid. It was like flipping a switch. One day it stopped working and he went from mellow to psychotic. Thankfully quaaludes were going out of style, so Mom got him a supply of valium. He sold those to buy pot and finally leveled out and built a decent life. I was already out of the Navy by that point.

              Then he became an alcoholic. I only hear the occasional drunken rant. The solemn requests from him, for money, stopped when I lost my job to covid. So it's been peaceful since July.

              Well 6. It started way earlier than that. I was diagnosed in '81 and they were doing that shit then too. Granted instead of ADD or ADHD it was called "Short Attention Span".

              When I hit college the first time my morning routine was a cup of coffee, a cigarette, a glazed donut and a Ritalin. The good old American spirit of "A little ain't enough", if one stimulant doesn't do it try 5. I was actually given anti depressants for about a year or two when I got off Ritalin. Granted they hand out antidepressants a little too much too at ages that should be learning coping skills.
