Summary Ecstasy users' perceptions of risk, harm reduction and decision making practices were examined in 153 adults. Identified were a range of positive and negative effects attributed to using ecstasy. There was only a weak association between risk perception, other risk taking behaviours and high ecstasy use. However, the role of the peer group was found to be an important factor in the reducation of harm, and in particular, the decision making process.
