    Thanks! I was under the impression that it lasted a good bit longer than that (or so says my BM, who has used it before and has had more experience with it :) )

    Half life of Acepromazine paste

    Just curious; how long will/do the effects last? (I'm not sure of the dosage given, but it would be approximately equal to 1, 1 1/2 ccs of the injectable.)

    Dang, it sounds like alters are used for all sorts of "nefarious purposes"!

    As usual, the people who behave like asshats make it difficult for others--who play nice--to be treated fairly. :sigh:

    Interesting responses so far.

    It wouldn't occur to me to use an alter as a way to "hide behind my computer screen", or to tell others where to go! Not that the latter hasn't gone through my mind...

    For those of you who use alters...

    What prompted you to do it?

    Have you found that you've been able to post about things that you would ordinarily be reluctant to share on the board?

    Did you find that people took you less...
