Ecstasy is a typical party drug, aimed at the night club/party market. Sleep is literally driven out of the body. Ecstasy is available in pills, in various colours and shapes, sometimes capsules or powders. If you have the real Ecstasy, it contains MDMA (3, 4 – methylenedioxymethamphetamine).
Ecstasy stimulates the release of certain substances in the brains, which changes your mood and your energy level is increased. What you want to achieve with Ecstasy is a happy, cheerful, bright and careless feeling. There is a different experience of music and colour, need for intimacy and contact, a sense of belonging and meaning in the form of sex.
Because inhibitions disappear for a few hours, the world seems a lot better. The effects of Ecstasy start about half an hour to one hour after ingestion and lasts for about five hours. In young, slender women and men, the effect is stronger. Because you never know what exactly is in your ecstasy pill, the dangers of Ecstasy are quite high.
