About a year ago SWIM and his buddy were highly interested in the searching of ones minds. They often took LSD together and became rather experienced hallucinogenic users. I was all about research and investigated extentisively on any drug before his usage. After a year of LSD usage I had DOI blotter tabs going around his town, and tried one tab, then a few weeks later tried two, then three, and in on April 5th, 2006 SWIM and his friend each took 4 tabs of DOI in hopes of getting a +4 experience (thought of corrolation with number of tabs and desired effects does not exist). When SWIM and his friend did this they were thrown into an experience of +3 with long and very strong waves of +4. After SWIM came back from his +4 waves and was at a +3 again for a *very* short ammount of time he found himself unable to say anything other than "I don't get it" which was repeated about once every hour, sometimes followed by "Why can't I talk?". I remember a feeling of being lost within oneself, going into the bathroom and seeing a clock that would say 2:30 am, then walk in hours later and the same clock would say 12:00 am, then 3:00 am, then when he was going to venture home he saw that it was 5:30 am. When he tried to walk to the front door and experienced himself being a llama walking across a hill above a beautiful valley, then he turned around and went back to the room only to see that the clock said 4:30 am. (I do not remember exact time's but this is basically what happened) SWIM then tried so hard to try and get a grip that he felt everyone he had ever met was in the pitch black of the house, sitting or standing in different places and laughing at SWIM. SWIM finally ran out of the house and to his own (about a mile away) whilest constantly hearing the taunting giggles echoeing from every shadow he passed in the moonlight. SWIM then tried to have a conversation with his parents and felt as if they knew of his extensive research on psychoactives and felt so dissapointed about him that he was filled with a supreme sense of shame. SWIM then tried to go to sleep and laid down on his bed only to get lost in a +4 that he believed was him dreaming (although he has no reccollection of any thought or event that went on in this time period) until 9 am, at which time he noticed his eyes were still open and he had been staring directly into the ceiling light of his room for the past 4 hours. I tried to call someone to drive him to school, but when he called it said the number never existed, and he again heard the giggles of taunt. This day he watched the movie Narnia, and found himself highly emotional to simple things as when the fare played the song on his flute and the fire began dancing. I would start crying when he heard some songs on the radio this same day that he believed were written JUST for him, and were secretly played to send a message to him and him alone at that exact moment. The trip gradually reduced itself back to sobriety after 3 days, which made SWIM think he would never come back. I have tried smoking marijuana (which he has done for over 7 years) among other drugs (excluding hallucinogens and alcohol [BTW, he knows marijuana is classified as a hallucinogen]) and has been brought back to this extensive feeling of paranoia that everyone is talking about him when speaking of anything and thinks while intoxicated(minus exclusions) that songs that people play while he is intoxicated are hidden messages that they are trying to say about him. This brings him into a deep feeling of paranoia and depression which has turned SWIM, who used to be a social butterfly, into a hermit. SWIM sometimes even gets these feelings/thoughts while sober (anytime he is in a new place or around new people, sometimes even people he has known his whole life). But the reason I posted this is because SWIM wanted an opinion on if he should take LSD to try and go back in time and space to re-find himself and search for the answers he has been looking for, or try and get some of the hair of the dog that bit him? Please remember that I am an experienced hallucinogen user, and can handle salvia but has been unable to (in the short length of the trip) find the answers he is searching for. I would also like to make a note that anyone who is experimenting with psychoactives should not be afraid by this post. The trip that you have all depends on the state of mind you are in, hence PSYCHOactive. Go in with a good mood, happy thoughts, positive and optimistic outlook, a reason to take this trip/objective of your experience, and you will be perfectly fine.
