1 hit   25I-NBOMe (blotter / tab)


A few weeks ago, three of my close friends and I decided to try ‘LSD’ (which I would discover later was 25I-NBOMe). We were quite baked and it was getting late at night, however the combination of excitement and a little nervousness drove us to purchasing a few ‘tabs’. For me, it was my second time to be doing this; for a friend it was to be his 5th time, and for the other two it was their firsts.

So at 10pm at a friend’s cottage we all took a tab and begun the wait. I did not have large expectations, as my first experience with the substance was hardly noteworthy and mildly pleasant. Also, with just one tab I believed that nothing much would happen. However this experience would be far different, and very challenging.

Roughly an hour in, the telltale signs began as the walls begun to shift slightly and the patterns on the carpet begun to twirl. It was very enjoyable at this point, all four of us were enjoying the effects. However as the night progressed and the mental effects began, it became increasing uncomfortable

. I started to feel quite sick in the stomach and confused. I sat down and closed my eyes, but my head was a cauldron pot of thoughts. I reminded myself that I was just feeling the effects of the drug, but it was an uncomforting thought. A burning sensation begun under my skin and I felt an irresistible urge to stretch my arms and legs. Feeling quite worried, I sat down on the couch and attempted to sleep, to which any experienced user would understand that it is absolutely impossible. A friend muttered that it was a terrible idea to take it so late in the evening. My thoughts raged out of control, and I experienced what many would call ‘a loss of reality’ and a ‘death of ego’. This continued for many more hours, and no sleep was to be had until 5 in the morning.

The day after I awoke feeling groggy and sick, and unable to eat anything. My experience with 25I-NBOMe was definitely unpleasant, however there were many rookie mistakes that could have helped avoided the bad trip. Firstly, it is a terrible idea to take it so late when sleep will be unobtainable. Secondly, I was not properly acquainted with the effects of the drug and was not ready to handle it.
