    Just curious if anyone has any experience using this chemical alone?...i mean with no other people around. I've been alone while on acid or shrooms, but one time i tried mdma by myself - and spent the whole time wishing i had some company. From what i've read about it, i would guess the answer would be no - since it sounds like it's a fairly social drug. I was just thinking it might be fun to try and make some music on the computer while on this chemical...or do some artwork...but i thought the same thing about mdma, and that didn't work out. Let me know...i'm planning on trying 2c-i in the near future - but i will dose with my SO the first couple of times.

    i believe there are some reports on erowid of people who have tried what you are asking about. I would not count out a solo 2c-i experience, as it could potentially be very fun. it all depends on how comfortable You is with himself and how well he can keep himself occupied. 2c-i is not really like mdma, despite what you might have heard. 2c-i isn't quite as much a "party drug" as mdma. on many of swim's trips, sitting or lying down was more appealing than being up and about. the two have some minor similarities, but 2c-i is definitely more hallucinogenic and less empathogenic (in swim's opinion). I has spent large portions of a 2c-i experience with closed eyes listening to music or lying in bed thinking. for swiy's first time, a companion would be advisable in case something unexpected happens. I would HIGHLY recommend that any lab rats planning to take the 2c-i test start with low (5mg to 10mg) doses to check for possible adverse reactions then slowly increase dosage each successive use until a comfortable amount is found. hope that is a little helpful.

    if you are interested, a recent 2c-i trip report can be found here.


    also, it is bad practice to incriminate yourself here. check the rules before you break more, because it doesn't sit too well with the higher-ups here. research chems are NOT intended for human consumption.

    There is always a bit of inherent risk in solo trips, but once You is comfortable with yous response to 2C-I, then if You still feels ready to take it by himself he should expect to live through it. ;) An excellent stategy for solo tripping, especially if one is feeling anxious about it, is to have a pre-arrangment with a friend whom the tripper can contact and expect help from if trouble arises, or even to arrange to have that person come by or call at a decided-upon time.

    I said they went out to an event on 2C-I and because the trip was long, they spent time around people and by themself. They also stated to truly enjoy the trip, it's better in public with a sitter or at a house party with trusted individuals.....

    I did mention that it was NOTHING AT ALL like MDMA though.....Mainly Hallucinogenic.......They stated it was more like Magic Mushrooms(dosage depending of course), almost like one was watching a movie....... SWIM stated that rats shall not be falling asleep until about +10 - 13hours after +0 Hour (again, dosage depending)

    SWIM also said that a scale and an empty stomach is A MUST.......Don't eyeball it

    SWIM mentioned that lab rats would absolutely love this chemical if their research owner would take them to a very visually stimulating concert like Shpongle or Rabbit in the Moon. Maybe they'll allow pets to attend in the name of science? ;-p

    Each Hit - that sounds like what I am looking for - laying around listening to music. Sphongle or Future Sound of London. mmmm.

    And yes guys, I am well aware that 2c-i is nothing like mdma, I have been researching this chemical for over 3 months now.

    another quick question: would there be any problem with taking a Tylenol 3(Codeine) on the comedown ? (about T + 7-8 hours)

    This guy I know takes most of his trips alone, including 2C-I. It's helped cure him of his natural emotional detachment and made him more empathic. He said taking it in a party atmosphere was useful as well, but in a different way.

    2c-i is an ok alone drug you just have to keep yourself occupied with fun things. for SWIM its a light enough drug to watch movies on etc etc. but your mileage my vary

    I said that he doesn't really recommend polypharmacy, but trip-reports over at erowid account for people taking a Xanax(1-2mg) @ around T+10hrs to help them fall asleep and having no problems.....

    my had experience with LSD and MDMA on his own a few times, but that was a case of getting split up from friends or the night dying down early etc. With the latter SWIM might on a few occasions taken more and listened to music/watched movies (porn) and have had a few drinks.

    The first time SWIM actively decided to take a psychedelic on his own was two days after taking 2-cb for the first time - which was many many years after first reading accounts about it.

    It was a Sunday and I was living in Sydney - he's from Ireland, he had two tablets. From the experience he estimates the dose to be about 30mgs split in two a few hours apart. He had planned it, all my housemates were out and I spent the day listening to many various albums and songs with his housemates Staffy.

    One of My and I’m sure the dogs fondest memories.

    my recently realised the availability of Research Chemicals from various sources and he and his girlfriend enjoy them, that said SWIM might think about a Sunday with just him and some 2-ci... he thinks it would be most suitable for a solitary experience.

    Then again, after an hour or so, he'd probably miss her too much.

    I have done 2c-i alone @ 15 mg and did not have too much fun. I went crazy for 7 hours. Hours spent wondering where in his life I took a wrong turn. Hours spent in the back yard wondering why a plane had to fly over his house every 8 minutes. Wondering why the planes sounded so terrible. All swim wanted was silence. And when he got it, the ringing in his ears drove him even more nuts. Smoking pot increased My anxiety.. into overdrive. Swim a very difficult experience which was foucused on everything negative and wrong in his life. BUT on another occasion I did another solo 2c-i experiment @ 5 mg and had a wonderful day tooling around, mowing the lawn, a trip to the bookstore was very nice indeed(so i was told). Lunch was reported to be wonderful. Swim kept himself busy with ordinary tasks and his 2c-i secret amused him all day long.

    often times, a difficult experience can have an underlying cause in one's mindset or setting at the time of the experience. sometimes, wondering "where in life I took a wrong turn" can be a very useful way of discovering what needs rectification in one's life. there's also a chance that said substance is not the one swim enjoys best. different strokes for different folks and all that.

    agreed! often times, it's the difficult experiences that make the greatest impact on SWIM. Also, I was trying to illiustrate that this subctance(2c-i) could really go either way, and there are many variables that will influence the expeience.. set and setting as you mentioned, as well as dosage. The energy and speed that is provided by 2c-i at the higher dosages makes me desire interaction with others. They don't have to be 'on' to fufill that desire.

    Low to medium doses of 2C-I by oneself can be fine times and rewarding, I've been told. A certain monkey has reported very introspective and/or creative and/or emotional experiences in such settings. Mindset is of course important, as the above posters have made clear. And I would be wary about higher doses of any psychedelic by oneself before being very familiar with all the effects of a particular substance.

    a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a certain fool took for granted a medicine of a high order, and was left with mental jaws unhinged, the folks at Erowid seemed to like the resultant report anyhow.

    unless you have come to know and use the true evil lurking at the bottom of your heart (or in the eyes of a chicken, as per Hemingway) - or are prepared to face same in whatever form it may come, best have a trusted companion / sitter for any new venture

    wow. that's a pretty truthful comment. i always would try to suppress anything dark or foreboding while tripping, thinking it would cause me to just snap into some evil person. took me a while to realize that is just a part of the trip, sometimes. it has helped me establish a morality i am comfortable with and helped me shed the oppressive religious mentality i was raised with. i was always afraid it was just my own persona. knowing that many others, if not all, face a similar challenge, i do not feel like i am a bad person, now. thank you.
