The first time a friend did it he absolutely lost it and had a psychotic episode.
I was 18 and had been given a book of love hearts by my cannabis
dealer who had no idea what to do with them or how to go about shifting them. To this day it was the greatest summer of my life. I felt like Tim Leary
handing them out.
Anyway, there were four of us who dropped and it was their first. We were having a great experience. Laughing so hard I thought they were going to wet themselves. The look on their face as though seeing the world for the first time.
One of them, Nate, asked me how long this would last. When I told him about another 8 hours everything changed for him. His whole world went to shit he told me later. He became introverted and paranoid, just wanting to sleep. He fell into my bed and tied his shirt around his eyes. For some reason he walked downstairs and stretched out on the floor by my front door in just his underwear and socks. I asked him to get up because if my girlfriend would be coming home in a few hours found him like that she would flip.
I tried and failed to move him, I asked him if he wanted to go to the park, that he'd enjoy the experience and the squirrels. He turned to me and said "I know what your plans are for me", right then and there I knew it was serious, he said everyone was a threat. I didnt know what to do so I went up stairs to the other two who were enjoying listening to classical music and smoking joints. It would have totally ruined their trip had I told them what was happening.
But from below I heard shouting, Nate started screaming that he needed a drip and to call an ambulance. I knew I couldnt risk the police coming to the door either. I was planning on asking his cousin to help tie him up, no joke it made sense at the time, just so he wouldnt hurt himself or others. But then with an almighty boom my door had been pulled open and he had darted out the house and was running down the street, stark naked, save for his socks.
I won't lie, this was one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed and to this day I feel guilty for laughing. Apparently he asked a woman at the phone box to call an ambulance but she replied that she had no change to do so. This put him in a deeper despair. His cousin walked up to him and gave him his underwear and shoes, the rest we couldnt locate, later we found them in the washing machine. But he couldnt look at Nate because he was laughing so hard. Our other friend that was tripping helped him and told him he was gonna phone an ambulance. Nate just wanted his mum, so he was taken there and told her, calmly, that he had taken some LSD
from some guys in the park and that he was having a bad time and to call an ambulance.
The ambulance came and took him away. One of the nurses treating him turned out to be a girl who he was with and had cheated on her, this sent him further down and thought someone was setting all this up and he was being booked into a mental hospital as a punishment. He later told me he thought that was me. They gave him something to calm him down and spent the rest of the evening playing with the wires near his bed and watching the patterns on his gown move.
He told me that the paranoia and heavy thinking stayed with him for about a month after that.
Well, you wanted an experience OP!
I don't know exactly why he went like that and often thought it was my fault for telling him how long it would last as that was the trigger but I will say that in everyday life Nate likes to be in control. He doesnt like MDMA
either because it makes him feel out of control. I think that has a big thing to do with it.
I've never had a bad trip
, even the really strange ones I think fascinating. Another time while on mushrooms me and my neighbour thought that we were having deja-vu every 10minutes and time kept re-playing it's self. My friend didnt like it and freaked him out but i thought it amazing that time could be played with like this
Hope this helps.
