An Excellent Experience

10, 28, 2016 - 620pm, dropped appx 1/2 tab 100mcg ALD-52. It's not bitter, which is a good sign. I'm taking such a low dose to just get a feel for it. Its supposed to be a 12hr experience plus afterglow. Dose is being administered in the sublingual method: under the tounge for the next 30 mins or so. Will update as possible. Not sure what to expect or what I'll experience, but I have a very nervous excitement. Let's go.

Current mindset: skipping a college football game, that I wasn't really that excited about anyway, to do this. I am much more relaxed here at home. I've been wanting to do this very badly for about 8 months now and only recently decided to buy ALD-52 after lots of research finding anectodal evidence saying its the LSD analogue closest to the real thing. I feel good about life in general. I do wish my financial situation was a little better. I feel like I could use a minor bail out there. Dad offered me one a few weeks ago, but I turned him down. I'm out of school now and I'm determined to make it on my own in the school of hard-knocks. I love knowing that he still has my back tho. Course if he knew I spent $60 on this...

Current setting: in my house. I don't plan to leave here at all during the trip, but if I feel well settled by the time the game is over, I may join my friends for drinks. I think that'd actually be good because alcohol can bring down a high and I'd like to be able to sleep tonight at some point. But current plans are to stay put. I like this house. Its small, I've lived here for a few years now with my 2 best friends from high school. Neither of whom know I do drugs. And neither of whom know I own drugs of any kind. Not even Kratom, and that's legal and I take it medicinally for my shoulder pain. So when they come home I will retreat to my room; my room is a very safe and happy place. Clean and stress free. My room is the best place for everything except netflix. Netflix is best on the 4k TV in the living room.

650, gastrointestinal distress, very mild nausea appx 5 mins ago that has transitioned into what feels like the runs. Thinking about removing the blotter from under my tounge, but I want to make sure I get the full 50 mics. Been sitting in front of netflix for 30 mins writing my cannibis story. Netflix went back to the login page. Guess we now know that takes 30 mins. Minor tingling in my legs and feet. Headache seems lessened. Not sure thats a thing with acid, but thats just how I feel.

700, just got this wave of increased sensitivity through my body. I don't feel any tingling yet. Just touched my arms, though, and sensitivity has definitely increased. My muscles have been aching today, and currently they just ache more. Maybe due to the sensitivity increase? Who knows.

712, feeling good. Happier than I was a few mins ago. I got up to throw the blotter away and felt nothing wired with walking. Muscle ache seems to be dependent on laying position. The body load is beginning. Feels sort of minor, but I feel a little weak in my hands. I don't even want to be holding this phone txting. And dexter is taking a lot of my attention, slowing down my dedication to typing. I may only update every hour from now on. The mental effects are starting to come on. My mind is changing, my perception isn't yet, though. It's all coming in waves; it feels like it cant decide if it wants to come on or not, but it feels very probable that it will.

739, just got a major mental shift. No visuals yet, tho. Nausea increased slightly, but again, I feel like everything is coming in waves. Slowly coming on stronger, but still in waves. A rising tide is a good analogy. I am the beach, acid is the tide. Body load increases accompanied by, oddly enough, lip numbness.

752, If I stop and look for it, there is definite waving. Subtle, but it is definitely there. It's appx T+1:30. Could still have another 30 mins until peaking. I'm beginning to notice slight tracers, very very slight. It definitely feels like it's coming in waves. It's strange.

810, wasnt feeling much of anything, so I double dosed. This'll be a whole 100mcg experience by the end. I sat outside on the front porch cause it just felt right to do. I totally ignored dexter for a while. The earth started to rock back and forth, and I started to rock with it. It just felt right. A few cars passed, the neighbor came outside, but no tracers, color changing visuals, or even color enhancement.

824, feel a very strong need to vibrate. Vibrating my whole body seems to help the body load feel more normal. Or rather, I feel like vibrating is what the body load wants me to do. My tounge is very numb.
I feel like vibrating is what the body load wants me to do. My tounge is very numb.
Never felt anything like this. Its a weird numb. And I definitely feel the tingly sensations in my fingers. I am having to take great care to type the right keys. Light is having this weird effect like the edges of an image are streaked. Like in my glasses when they're not clean. I itch. 833, still typing this entry. Again, I feel the waves, but they're stronger. Definite visual changes. Visual acuity for sure. Looking down my hallway, my room looks like a miniature-type image.

Okay, lets just start a whole 'nother entry here at 837. I am definitely high. Mental effects, don't know what to call them other than different. Typing is super fast and fluid. Like I'm able to do everything in hyperspeed. Everything except focus on this post. Lol.

842, Now the mental stuff has become super clear. I'm now at 30 mins since the redose. Another 15 and I'll take out the blotter. 845, the whole earth is a wave. Lol. There's no getting around it. I just wanna stop making notes now and do what's natural to the lsd.

Tongues are weird. They're not like I see in pictures. What I see in pictures is what I picture to have in my mouth, but that's not what's actually there. Just take a look in the mirror. You'll see what I mean.

855, sound changes dramatically! Very different based on the environment and surroundings. Sounds like my voice is being echo'd back to me from every surface. If this weren't a hallucinogen, I would imagine it to be a very effective tool for sampling the reverb time of a room with just your ears.

921. I walked to 5 guys, and I am learning that I love this stuff in public. Though I am just now having an altered visual perception. I'll explain it all later. I'm waiting on my food at the moment. I need to get home as soon as I can. I know that. Visuals are rapidly changing. Perception of breath is rapidly changing. Taking a full breath, though makes me realize that I actually can breathe, and that I'm not going to die. Lol.

941, I can't right now. I will have to just report on all the effects in one large lump later. I just can't. Too much. Love.

957, too much amazing. Okay, what I see in the tripsit logo, with the blue red offset colors, is truth. What I see in any movie that shows a shot from the perspective of someone who is high on acid stumbling out of a building running from a cop, that is truth. I'm having a grand time right now! I really don't think there's an emoji that can properly capture what this feeling is like! 🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵

This is so crazy because what I'm feeling, I'm feeling for the first time, but... yet... it's so familiar.

Okay, so I'm settled in now. I'll explain what I experienced at 5 guys, and to clarify, I should not have gone in public. So I was typing a part of this experience and it was just like a film of what appeared to be a thick, low viscosity liquid slowly moved over the keyboard. Before the film everything was stable, but once the film hit a part of the keyboard or the screen, it started waving up and down profusely, and that's when I noticed the offset colors that I mentioned at 957, which is an hour ago now. The letters on the keyboard moved faster than I could type. I haf to take great care to choose the right letters. Auditory changes began as well. And I think my brain didn't know what it was doing, but it just kinda... freaked out. It made some weird sound when I inhaled through my nose and I thought I was losing the ability to breathe. I thought I was having an allergic reaction, my throat was closing up, and I was going to die. But I remembered Adam and his tripsitting tips about having the person breathe, so I breathed. Consciously. Through my nose, which didn't help and didnt feel like it filled my lungs. So, I breathed in through my mouth and I was able to fill my lungs. Then I knew my throat wasn't closing up, and suddenly, once I knew my throat was okay, I could breathe through my nose too. Everything was fine after that. I just didn't know it was gonna hit me like that. I just knew I had to get home asap. So I got my food, smiled, and left. :) current time: 1059pm.

I'm gonna take a shower and get out of this phone a little bit. Be back later.

254am, well I did take a shower. It was good, and I didn't realize just how good until it was over. It was pretty good! Great, even. After, I just layed in my room for a bit and tried to relax to some music. I realized why I hate my job so much. I can't ever get out of the crazy. We spend the whole time juggling so many things. I never get time to just focus on one project at once. I'm all wound up all the time with no chance to release that energy. I need to find a healthy release. A way to get out of my head and away from the crazy. A way to focus. The LSD way, for now.

Overall, this was a very positive and exciting experience! I will be doing this again for sure! I have 4 blotters left, so good times and higher doses are certainly in my future.
