    SWIM is not talking about the 3 hour fast before he ingests. He's talking about during the trip. Would eating during the high reduce the effects or shorten the high?

    Why would someone even want to eat during a dxm trip? I've heard that food has about as much culinary appeal as cardboard when dexing. If someone's eaten gels or chugged a load of syrup his gastro-intestinal tract has already got enough to do without having to digest food. However, I know people who actually enjoy eating midway through the ordeal and the quality of their trips doesn't seem to be effected too negatively. It just seems really unnecessary to me — unless, of course, swiy knew that it might be his last chance to eat for the next few days or something.

    SWIM's first time using dextromethorphan was a bad one she has yet to write up about, since then she has had good experiences.
    However, during the first time, she nearly choked on a cookie because she forgot how to eat. Dangerous.
    She knew afterward she was not supposed to eat.
    Later on, she tried again because she felt a bit more sober. As soon as the cookie touched her teeth she threw it down, knowing better.
    Nor did she smoke during this time.
    If she couldn't trust muscle memory to allow her to eat, she damn well wasn't going to risk a lit cigarette.

    eating on dex is a waste of food because it doesn't taste like anything. It's as if you just burned your whole mouth really bad, and then trying to eat.

    When SWIM is dexing it's like the exact opposite as being hella baked, he has absolutely no appetite at all and no food sounds good to him...I guess in theory someone could eat on dex, but they probably won't want to once they are tripping.
    Even if SWIM smokes reefer while robo-tripping he has no appetite...

    Appetite is definitely lowered by DXM use, desire to eat and ability to eat a 'normal' quantity of food is typically impossible. When SWIM has done lower doses and tried to act sober in front of people, eating would be a forced, difficult chore. There are no side effects related to nausea, and in all it did not seem to have a direct effect on the intensity of the drug's effects on his body. The psychological impact that SWIM tried to eat and was unable to, left an increasing sense of deadness to him, and that sense of emptiness resonates deeply with SWIM when it echoes through his DXM-submerged mind.

    In short, the trip may not be fun if one decides to do not fun things. Eating is just not one of those fun things.

    Swim likes to have a small meal a few hours before pretty much any kind of trip. Though keep in mind swim only does pure dmx, which not many people do. Swim knew someone that died from CCC's. Back on topic...


    If swim does NOT eat, Swim will get sick. He has ate a half pie on a g of K. And spaghetti on dxm. His friends call him weird but it's body says what to do and he listens. Seems to work.

    Swim says everyone's metabolism is different.

    True. I guess the thing is, if someone eats after the DXM has begun to be metabolized and not just sitting in their stomach the trip shouldn't be affected that much, although it still seems pretty unappetizing to me.

    Swim has never had a problem eating on DXM, usually when he is peaking he just doesn't think to do it even if he is hungry. However, during the come down he feels that a light snack helps to ground him in reality.

    Seeing as cigarettes where already mentioned, in swim's experience smoking during the comedown ends swim's trip faster, while smoking the next day greatly alleviates swim's "robo-hangover."

    Who knows... Everyone is different.

    Swim has programmed it's body to where it will say hey!, need protein, carbs, electrolytes, etc. Such as a craving for salt, or a steak is a sign of needing protein and salts.

    Swim has programmed it;s body to do this. Mostly from experience from weight lifting and dieting gives swim an extra advantage to prevent adverse side effects from certain substances.

    SWIM wouldnt say food was horrible, just tht he never feels lyk eating on it and the times he has it feels like it takes forever just to chew something up to swallow it, which is the huge time distorting effects it seems to have.

    Yeah I was going to say the same thing.

    Although SWIM would often eat like 3 hours in, after SWIM had gotten a bit more accustomed to it after several times.
