Is ecstacy bad for you?

I just found out the smashing pumpkins did it on their adore album. I want to write music like them, so should I do ecstacy to or what?

    NO! Don't do, that's silly! It causes tiny explosions in your brain which result in holes. It can literally cause you to drown yourself because you'll get really thirsty, and drink a lot of water. Your body doesn't really process water (or anything else) when on XTC, so you could flood your lungs. Drugs are bad for you. If you must do them, smoke some reefer, but not every day or even every week! :) Maybe you could get people's reactions on how they FEEL when THEY'VE done it...then just try to put their prose into beautiful, weird lyrics :)

    no u shouldnt do ne drug. Ecstasy is a dangerous and harmful drug that causes:Health Hazards

    For some people, MDMA can be addictive. A survey of young adult and adolescent MDMA users found that 43 percent of those who reported ecstasy use met the accepted diagnostic criteria for dependence, as evidenced by continued use despite knowledge of physical or psychological harm, withdrawal effects, and tolerance (or diminished response), and 34 percent met the criteria for drug abuse. Almost 60 percent of people who use MDMA report withdrawal symptoms, including fatigue, loss of appetite, depressed feelings, and trouble concentrating.

    Cognitive Effects

    Chronic users of MDMA perform more poorly than nonusers on certain types of cognitive or memory tasks. Some of these effects may be due to the use of other drugs in combination with MDMA, among other factors.

    Physical Effects

    In high doses, MDMA can interfere with the body’s ability to regulate temperature. On rare but unpredictable occasions, this can lead to a sharp increase in body temperature (hyperthermia), resulting in liver, kidney, and cardiovascular system failure, and death.

    Because MDMA can interfere with its own metabolism (breakdown within the body), potentially harmful levels can be reached by repeated drug use within short intervals.

    Users of MDMA face many of the same risks as users of other stimulants such as cocaine and amphetamines. These include increases in heart rate and blood pressure, a special risk for people with circulatory problems or heart disease, and other symptoms such as muscle tension, involuntary teeth clenching, nausea, blurred vision, faintness, and chills or sweating.

    Psychological Effects

    These can include confusion, depression, sleep problems, drug craving, and severe anxiety. These problems can occur during and sometimes days or weeks after taking MDMA.


    Research in animals links MDMA exposure to long-term damage to neurons that are involved in mood, thinking, and judgment. A study in nonhuman primates showed that exposure to MDMA for only 4 days caused damage to serotonin nerve terminals that was evident 6 to 7 years later. While similar neurotoxicity has not been definitively shown in humans, the wealth of animal research indicating MDMA's damaging properties suggests that MDMA is not a safe drug for human consumption.

    okay- so drugs for creativity?

    that's just sad.

    they just lost respect in my book!

    NO- you just need to relax and find your "zone" or space.

    I actually do my best writing in a very busy restaurant or mall courtyard- funny huh?

    I write non fiction and children's books.

    Its all about where you find your "mojo" as Austin Power's put it.

    IT won't be found in a pill, bottle or in a stiff or straw.

    ecstasy is HIGHLY dangerous!!!!!!!!

    Stay AWAY from it!! You should know better than that.

    They've had plenty of programs on television about how some of the damage it's done to others is IRREVERSIBLE.

    copying others doesn't do well overall. Find your own way to tap your resources...
