Dangers of Ecstasy

The Dangers Of Ecstasy.

Ecstasy is a typical party drug, aimed at a music night market and also to weekend festivals. Sleep is literally driven out of the body. Ecstasy is available as pills, in various colors and shapes, sometimes capsules or powders. If you have the real Ecstasy, it contains MDMA (3,4-methyleendioxymethylamfetamine). It goes under a variety of street names, a common one in South Africa was “Mercedes” as the pills had the merc symbol on them. This particular batch was deadly, as the users did not know what the ingredients actually were.

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, ‘ecstasy’ is a happy, cheerful, bright and love feeling. There is a different experience of music and color, need for intimacy and contact, a sense of belonging and meaning in sex.

Because inhibitions disappear for a few hours, the world seems a lot better. The dangers of Ecstasy starts 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.
