Etizolam. The confusing substance that gave me little to no effect. Or so I thought. Awhile back I ordered some of this substance expecting Euphoria, Relaxation, Calm, and an Ease to an overactive mind. Did they deliver at that time? Barely. I swallowed one, slight difference in feeling, overall not worth it. Swallowed two, just a bit more than one. I didn't like these. They didn't have the pronounced effect I thought they would and that many forums had claimed. What I was seeking was given, but at such low levels there's no way I would recreationally enjoy these to wind down.

Awhile later I read that these pills could be chewed. At first I was disappointed. Chewing pills is usually disgusting. The flavor immense and gross. These though, as I chewed through my two pills had near no flavor. I waited awhile expecting the typical half hour come-on but within about 10 minutes I felt the beginning of what the Etizolam experience is. It always begins with me having a cold chill. It feels orgasmic and wonderful and lasts for about 30 seconds. Then came the light headed pressure. Which is hard to explain, but truly makes this substance stand out to me. I love the feeling. It's like it filters out the bad, and even if you have bad thoughts, you can handle them. You're safe. It's a safety net.

The body relaxes immensely and you can feel yourself gaining more comfort. It's a beautiful experience and chewing the pills and holding them under your tongue truly helps a ton.

After that experience, weeks later, I upped to 3mg. I chewed, held, and then swallowed as before. Again, similar feelings but stronger and they seemed to last longer. I often lay in bed during my experiences so I cannot comment on motor skills. It was a euphoric lightheaded pressure safety net. Pure comfort.

Three days later I took the same 3mg. When I reached their half life of 6 hours I added another 1mg which didn't do much so I took another. In full, I had 5mg of that night. Due to the half life it amounted to being about 3.5mg. Just a small booster. Now that daylight had ensued I had to get up. Without a job (self employed) this was no problem. Noticeable staggering. Almost like a drunk walk. My mind is clear and calm, surrounded in safety, my body seems drunk. This night I drank two swigs of 75%abv Rum as well to potentiate my first dose. It was a hard night and I wanted more peace.

Alcohol and Benzos are usually a very bad idea. There is no withdrawal in my experience from spacing a 2-3mg dose every few days. This gives time for the half life of the pill to essentially reduce it to non existence. Literally a .01 of a milligram remains after 3 days if you take 3mg. If one takes 2mg, .007 remains. Half lives are important as these can cause blackout. Alcohol is also not recommended but if not overdone just seems to add to the experience. I had 2 swigs of rum. I remember the whole experience, no blackout. Well worth it.

Keep in mind I do these every 3 days when I can, so hardly any tolerance due to half life.
