Substances I’ve Tried

I experiment with substances different than most people do.  I first take the suggested dose.

If I don’t feel anything or I’m not sure, I double the dosage.  I keep doing this until I notice effect to the point that it’s uncomfortable and too strong.

I am relatively certain if/how things are working in my body.

Most of these have been experimented with multiple forms, brands, and methods of preparation.

Also, this is only a partial list and doesn’t include other substances as part of formulas.  I’ve experimented with these individually and in high dosages.  I’ve experimented with many substances not counted as part of proprietary formula, but I’ve stopped this in the past 3 years.
