I think it's a combination of what m said and maybe your personal genetics. I know that whenever I was doing a shit ton of coke in the army with my buddies I'd have to do a fair amount more to get as blown out as they were, and even then I didn't appear to enjoy it nearly as much. Whenever we moved on to MDMA, I regularly had to do 25-50% more to be as satisfied as they were too.
I also know that ritalin/focalin is something a lot of people enjoy, but it functions similarly to coke and I find it to be a total waste of time. The only thing that makes less of a waste of time is that it lasts 2-3 hours as opposed to 20-45 minutes, and it's far cheaper (especially if you're prescribed it).
Ever since getting out of the army, I've had access to coke but found no reason to ever by any, because I'm prescribed adderall again and can get ice if I really feel like it too, and they're vastly superior in every way imo. Coke felt like glorified caffeine to me, and even then I think given how quickly it was over and I would get irrationally upset and want more, I legitimately get more enjoyment out of caffeine (well, at least in combination with phenibut caffeine is great).
My friends, after developing a bit of a coke problem eventually started getting to where they'd have to save some coke to get to sleep, but even when I didn't use coke nearly as long or often as them (I got out long before they did), I almost immediately found coke relaxed me and made me almost sleepy after the first 5-10 minutes, which would last up until about 25-30 minutes in, then I would be more awake like I took a stimulant up until about the 45 min - 1 hour mark. Then I was back to baseline. I found while being prescribed focalin that, after the first day of use, taking it would also just make me relaxed and sleepy. Taking more, up to a certain point, would actually make me sleepy as though I'd taken some sort of sleeping pill, and then after that certain point, I would get extremely jittery/shaky, distraught, irrationally upset/mood swings, and would impair judgment and cognitive ability. I guess something about dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (coke is also a serotonin reuptake inhibitor too, but whatever) causes me to get relaxed and sleepy.
I mean, vyvanse/d-amp, provided I've been up for over 12-16 hours, especially if up over 24 hours also causes a similar sleepiness/relaxation (more so relaxation and than sleepiness) but also includes total mind silence, dopiness, bouts of staring and not doing anything at all to the point of near stupor, and being abnormally quiet all the time with no desire to talk, as well as sitting abnormally still (I kick my knees/feet up and down almost constantly). Meth seems to be rather similar to d-amp for the most part in this regard, and Adderall does this to an extent but it's generally more stimmy. The commonality here between them all is that it requires being up for an extended period of time and on a higher/moderate dose for this to happen, and even then it's still not nearly as relaxing and legitimately sleepy as coke or (dex)methylphenidate (focalin/ritalin) causes me to be, and they pretty well do it immediately. It really seems to be that I've got a genetic predisposition to reacting this way to these drugs.
