Fiorinal... The Living Barbiturate

I developed such a 'lust' for barbiturates upon reading literally hundreds of articles describing the 'God like high' they produce. I began my search for barbiturates about a year ago at the age of 18. I first had my eyes out for something like Seconal (secobarbital), or Nembutal (pentobarbital), however I soon lowered my standards substantially when I realized that in this day in age it would be nearly impossible to come across such a drug.

So here I am today at the age of 19 with a personal prescription for Fiorinal, the Barbiturate called Butalbital, it's kind of crazy to look at old photographs of Tuinal and Nembutal capsules and then receive a colorful Barbiturate capsule. l I have Christmas Trees! This is a medication for the use of tension headaches, although I've found it comes in handy if I seek something more. At around 12:30 I decided I'd smoke a bowl, after staring down my bottle of Fiorinal capsules I decided I'd go ahead and take 4 of them.

12:35 I had consumed the capsules and began to smoke some quality bud. Not feeling anything yet I continued to smoke.
12:45 I have a pleasant relaxed feeling, similar to the muscle relaxation effects of temezepam and diazepam. I have smoked my bowl and feel a calm but not 'stoned' high.

12:55 I feel a warm sensation throughout my body, not really like a norco or morphine high but something a little different... a good feeling.
1:15 I have a bit of a stomach ache I'm assuming due to the aspirin that is contained in the drug, none the less it's tolerable compared to the warm and now extremely relaxed sensation I'm now expirancing. Much stronger than a benzodiazepine, however is comparable to Halcion.

1:30 Just stood up. Wow!! I can't walk very well, it's almost like being fully cognitive yet drunk, I feel pretty fucked up at this point.
1:40 I'm smoking the best cigarette I've ever had in my life. This shit is good.

I'm going to take a little break and see how I feel everything seems pretty consistant so far..I have noticed I feel like chain smoking which I'm not a heavy smoker at all (less than a pack a day). This drug is highly underrated in my opinion it is producing a very unique high that I haven't had the pleasure of feeling before. Very enjoyable.

2:45 Everything has calmed down yet I feel a sense of happiness and pleasure. Compareble yet different than euphoria. This is very nice.
3:30 everything has calmed down yet I do have heartburn from the drug. Overall I would say that Butalbital is worth it. (Fiornal/fioricet)
