It was a Friday night and my friends and I decided to head on out to a rave. After we got there, we each pulled out one Snickers bar, one bottle of orange juice, and one baggy of shrooms, thought to be five grams. I was a little curious about what this would be like; my previous experiences involved only 3 or 4 grams. The shrooms went down smoothly and we were ready to enter the dance. I was looking forward to some psychedelic light shows. Half an hour later, I was starting to feel a little tingly sensation originating in my stomach and slowly spreading through the rest of my body. I smiled and realized that my trip was starting. I was in for a long ride. Shortly after, I was tripping balls. Somehow I lost my friends in the 3000 other people. I began walking around to find them but could not. I started getting a little paranoid. Everyone seemed to be looking at me.
Gradually, my paranoia increased and I thought that the cops that were there knew I was fucked up and were coming for me. I went to walk down the stairs toward the exit to escape but I saw flashing red and blue lights at the bottom. They had me cornered! I saw condom wrappers and thousands of cigarette butts on the floor among other things and *knew* that they were all mine and they represented all the bad things I had done. Suddenly, all the people started coming down the stairs and I distinctly heard and saw multiple people saying, 'I'm getting out of here. The people are doing some fucked up things.' Everyone WAS talking about ME. I walked back up the stairs and everywhere I went I saw cops. I thought they were coming for me. I remember thinking that I had really messed up and everyone would hate me for the bad things I had done and I would be in jail. I walked over to a place to sit down. I remember my friends finding me and talking about how much I had eaten. It was surreal. They tried to help me and give me water, but I thought, what was the point?!
I eventually collapsed to the floor and entered hell. I knew that I was suffering eternally, and that was what hell was - eternal damnation. It was the worst terror in my life by far. Eventually I realized that I could get up. I raised up off the cubicle and saw people next to me. I was not sure at that point what was real and what was not. They said my friends had left a little while ago. I left and found them. Strangely, after 3 hours of the worst trip of my life, I was completely sober. I found out a week later that my friend's scales were off by two grams and that I had eaten 7 instead of 5 g of shrooms.
