My experience with poppers over the years said on Sat, 17 Jul 2021 at 03:43...
Hello all, I'd like to give my experience with poppers, in case it helps.
1. I tried my first poppers in 2013 (all isopropyl from the UK). They were strong but had nasty side effects. I enjoyed them but the side effects weren't worth it.
2. In 2014-2015, I switched to a combination of:
(a) isobutyl from the USA, various suppliers but I could not recall which. They were fairly good, probably similar to what you'd experience if you try any random US supplier nowadays; and
(b) EU Popshop (who I believe was the licensed distributor of US Popshop): These were mind-blowingly good. I could not tell you what the chemical composition was, I can only say that the effects were amazing. They came in brown, unlabelled bottles with a pellet in them. It was a totally different feeling. You did not need to be in a horny mood to enjoy these poppers. These poppers would instantly transport you to an intense feeling of animalistic sluttiness of themselves, it was POWERFUL. I would honestly say that the potency and intensity of the high was at a similar level to the high on cocaine. Whilst not lasting nearly as long as cocaine (just the normal short-lived popper high), a similar intensity was matched. It was MIND-BLOWING. And the side effects were minimal if any, I can't recall any headache, burn or respiratory issue.
It might be worth noting that in this period of my life, I had never touched any other hard or soft drugs (no weed, no coke, no ecstasy, no LSD etc, never, not even once and I was in my mid-thirties). So perhaps the intensity was so huge because the dopamine centres in my brain had never been overloaded before. Not sure if this was relevant, but I'm pointing it out in case.
(c) From 2016-2021, I continued with EU Pop Shop (and various isobutyls from the USA and Australia), but sadly I could not experience what I felt before as noted above. I suspect that their formula changed, or perhaps my body built up a tolerance. I simply don't know. I only know that the high I experienced was somewhat decent, but nothing like before in terms of intensity. Also, I had to be in a horny mood to start with for the poppers to work. It wouldn't transport me to a horny place on its own, it was just a supplement to the experience.
(d) In June 2018, the owner of US Popshop was arrested for making explosives, and they shut down. This did not seem to affect my supplies from EU Popshop for the next few years. Perhaps they had plenty already in stock, or perhaps US Popshop sent them a tonne of product regardless of the arrest, or perhaps they sourced elsewhere, who knows. What I do know is that they weren't particularly strong or amazing, and they also had side effects for the first time, such as coughing.
(e) I read on this site that EU Pop Shop closed in May 2021. I am not sure if that is true, although I have no evidence either way, apart from one thread I read on this site.
Does anyone else have a similar experience or can relate?

Nobody knows all the sources of poppers that have replaced PWD's(Joe Millers) since 2010. What is known is that PWD(Joe Miller in Indianapolis, IN) was the world's biggest supplier of poppers until 2010. I can vouch that those poppers were consistently good, no side effects and they were fun.
Lockerroom in Canada has been in business 20 years, so they were a competitor of PWD's while Joe was still alive.
ALL of the poppers I bought OTC in the USA after Joe died, were total crap. One that persistently showed up was out of Langhorne, PA. They were acidic, weak crap. I had to buy Lockerroom poppers via Europe because they can't send directly to the US or Canada.

Also, there is a range of effects possible with any given nitrite/bottle. The bottle's chemical composition changes over time, especially once opened. There might be some tolerance built up if using frequently, BUT I would think any tolerance would go away in short order. A good active nitrite should always relax the ass. If it doesn't do that, it's either dead or has some interfering impurity.
