Yup, a couple of the accounts in TiHKAL are actually from the early alt.drugs newsgroup.morninggloryseed said:Most of the reports in both books are not Shulgins. In PIHKAL, the majority come from his research group (including him and his wife) but some are from documented literature. In TIHKAL, even more of the reports are from outside sources. ALthough Shulgin has done a lot of tripping in his day, he certainly did not write all of the reports in his books. In fact, I'd say only 1/4 are specifically his experiences.
As long as it's not a first time with the stuff, best to try 1/10th of a dose first time to check for idiosyncratic reactions (better safe than sorry!)Xorkoth said:I don't really like taking MDMA or methylone alone, and have never taken MDA. AET doesn't really make me want to talk - in fact, I'd much rather take it alone than I would AMT. I'd say you'll be fine taking it alone, or fine taking it with someone.
