This was long long ago, Yet I still wonder if I have sustained some damage. My son told me about experience report and I thought it may be therapeutic to write it all down:

I wasnt a big drug taker at all. And I feel very affected easily anyway and get anxious. So I'm not sure why I took this. Maybe because I had no idea what it would do. The friends told me it would be like taking a few mushrooms. LOL.

I live in Australia and here it is only really know by its name Datura. There were many trees around and we picked leaves flowers, stalks anything and boiled a huge saucepan of it and made coffee.

We decided to go see a movie and rang for a taxi, but by the time it arrived I felt seriously strange. I vaguely recall going into the movie theatre and freaking out pretty quick so I headed for the bathroom and left my bag which had all my legal documents, money, shopping, in the seat. I forgot to even go back inside.

Didnt know where I was or who I was. Next thing I recall is I was on a train and some guys were talking to me...we were then in the big house/block of flats in the garden. I couldnt read my watch the eyes had gone all funny.

I saw the guys as evil and wanted them to go away. I saw blood dripping down the stairs and soldiers hanging my dog round the side of the house. I saw many hundreds of dope plants that were radiant and growing before my eyes.

I saw a drain turn into the striped t-shirt of my little brother. The guys tried to talk to me but had no idea what they were saying. They tried to touch me and I was afraid. I tried to sleep in their backyard but the ground felt funny. Everything was extremely weird. I was so far gone I couldn't even be anxious.

I think I must have stayed there all night, the next thing I recall it was daylight and I was on a train with no bag no ticket just a packet of smokes and smoking on the train. People looking at me funny. Not sure how I got back home. It was only then many hours later I realised I didnt have my bag and tried to look up the phone book but my eyes were weird and I couldnt see the type at all.

Somehow or other I got to the market back in the city where the friends I'd taken it with had a stall. I was hoping they'd have my bag. I found them and they too couldnt recall much of what they had done. All of us couldnt see properly and felt seriously strung out.

As it was so long ago I dont recall much of the hallucinations but lets say other than the growing plants it had a lot of horror and was by far the strongest thing I'd taken. After this experience I started to have real bad issues with my anxiety and became agoraphobic

and didnt leave house for 4 months.

Some people suggested I needed rehab but I knew I didnt as I wasnt a big user of anything and this was a one time thing. I had to go to a shrink and go on a sedative for a while.

I still recall taking to the drain and lamp post and soldiers and all that. It was so full on a real entry to another world. I'm sure others may know how to measure a dose and maybe do it lighter but we just drank cups and cups of the stuff and I'm amazed I'm alive.
