I have been using GHB casually for two years. I generally dose with 5ml to start, wait an hour or two for the effect of euphoria to fade, then dose again. Over the years that I'd been dosing with GHB, I'd notice that I had the urge to do it more and more. I had issues with withdrawal symptoms and so tried to quit it several times. Nevertheless, I found myself back to the bottle over and over again.

In 2013, however, I had a horrifying experience with it. I'd always had fun on GHB and the worst that had happened was I'd passed out in front of friends and twitched. It was embarrassing, but that was the worst. I'd always come out of it okay. This time was different. I was at home alone, and I'd had a beer. I dosed once at midnight with 5ml of GHB, and then again at about 1:00a.m. After that, I have no recollection of what happened.

At 4:00 a.m., I awoke, face first on my kitchen floor (I think, the details are fuzzy) and in severe pain. I realized my floor and myself were covered in blood. I started screaming uncontrollably. I was so confused and so scared. I have never been so terrified in my life. My neighbours came to my door asking to be let in. I was confused and scared and didn't let them in. They called the police and ambulance, whom I finally let in.

I was covered in blood and my floor was, too. I kept apologizing. They kept asking me 'who did this to you?' and I said 'I did this to myself.' They didn't believe me when I said I had just fallen. They thought someone else had beaten me up, my injuries were so severe.

I was taken to the ER and given CT scans and sutures for my forehead, knee, and nose. My front teeth were missing. My nose was broken. I had two very black eyes and bruises all over my body. They told me I was lucky to be alive and without severe injury.

All this is still like a nightmare to me. I have never had an experience anywhere close to that on GHB before, and I don't recall even taking that much of it. I'd welcome that explanation of what might have happened that night. When I returned to my house, there was only two beers missing from my 6-pack and still a little bit of G left (I didn't have much to begin with). My theory is that I was sleepwalking or having seizures.

I would never wish this on anyone else. Don't do this drug alone. I thought I was an experienced user who knew what they were doing and I will live with the scars of this experience forever.
