A Cautionary Tale
Let me start by first saying that I am experienced with LSD, magic mushrooms, LSA, San Pedro etc for many years and before this experience I had used salvia many times and always had great trips with no bad experiences.
So for a day or so before this trip me and my girlfriend had had an argument and she was not talking to me so the vibe in the front room was moody.
She took herself off to bed without saying goodnight around 1am and I thought fuck it I'll have a hit of salvia. This salvia divinorum was 60x strength called horse killer and I had used this batch a few times before without a sitter.
As I loaded my bong I must of put a tad more than normal in because as I breathed out the vapour and lay back on the settee I blacked out completely.
I came to standing up pointing at the tv which was on with the film pulp fiction playing. I had no memory of taking any substance and wondered what the fuck was happening, I quickly remembered taking salvia but being taken completely by surprise my fight or flight response had already kicked in and my brain had chosen to flee.
I noticed the four corners of the room were attached to the four corners or the television and my outstretched pointing arm had these Christmas lights attached which in turn were attached to the ceiling.
John Travolta and Samuel Jackson were on screen but gone were their black suits and now they were all in white suits with the background all white, then John said he's going to run (which I was about to do) I turned in amazement as Samuel said don't do it stay ! But it was too late I was already leaving the room freaked out and not ready for contact.
As I ran up the stairs the whole room seemed to stretch with me as though it was attached to me and it took some effort to reach the bedroom. I pushed open the door and bent down by the bed, grabbed my girlfriends hand and said help me. She woke up and said 'what the fuck have you taken?' I was so fucked up that I just said 'that stuff'. By now my hands and feet were bending and they felt like bananas, I got into bed and a hot rush came over me followed by a cold sweat then I came back down to normal and felt like a right twat.
'You fucking idiot ' she said as I tried to go to sleep.
I haven't used it since and gave the remainder to a friend with this cautionary tale.
