Effects Not as Fun as I Thought They Would Be

T+ 0:00
60 mg oral Duloxetine (daily)
  T+ 5:00 25 mg oral 2C-B (capsule)
  T+ 6:35 12 mg insufflated 2C-B (powder / crystals)
First Time Psychedelic Drug

I've never taken psychedelic drugs before, only cannabis. I've been taking cymbalta/duloxetine SNRI antidepressant for 5 months before this trip.

There were 3 of us in my apartments - I invited a female friend M to tripsit me and we invited another friend of ours L to come watch me take my first psychedelic drug. I cleaned up my room beforehand, downloaded some music to listen to during the trip and prepared a bucket in case I vomit. Also I ate 0.5 kg of pizza at T-2:30

T- 5:00 Took 60mg duloxetine antidepressant pill.

T- 2:00 Ate a lot of pizza, about 0.5kg. I think it took a lot of time for 2C-B to kick in because of this.

T+ 0:00 M put 25 mg of 2C-B into a gel capsule and I took it.

T+ 1:35 Still no effect. L told me to snort 10 mg. I measured 11 mg and took it. My nose feels like it's burning but it's tolerable.

T+ 1:40 No effect. L and M wonder if the substance is fake or diluted. M decided to snort some too. She took 15 mg.

T+ 1:45 I feel the effect. M says she's tripping too. I see colors being decomposed into components. I feel very drunk. I decide to log everything, but it takes a lot of time for me to remember my laptop password.

T+ ?? The objects look very 3D like I am watching a 3D movie or playing a game in Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Sometimes when I close my eyes, I see red-green triangles, without blue color. I see fractals that look like zionist eye, I see converging spirals. Everything around me seems wet and covered with crumbs. I feel like I am sweating and I am drunk. It's very difficult for me to remember right words and construct sentences. At this moment I think that visual effects are underwhelming and I would like to snort some more. M doesn't let me - she took the scales :( L says annoying things to me all the time.

When I close my eyes, I see fractals with 3 curved lines coming from the center. Now I see red-green lambdas. M and L's skin looks more reddish than usually, while their dark clothes and hair look very black. It's very hard for me to think about anything and I am still unable to build complex sentences. M seems annoyed that I talk almost gibberish all the time instead of sitting and thinking about something.

My thoughts go in circles and I return to thinking something I've already thought about all the time. My sense of time is broken, I don't know whether something was a minute ago or half an hour ago. I feel cold. All this does not feel bad, it feels kinda fun. M is tripping too, she is moving around the apartments very fast. I want to touch M and L, but she wants to run around instead of letting me hug or feel her up or something.

It's very difficult for me not only to think but to move too. I decided to lie on the floor with my eyes closed and watch visuals, but M became worried about me and I stopped. All this seems fun.

I feel wobbly. When I look at my laptop's screen, it looks like it's under some angle - it indeed is but usually my brain transforms the picture so that I see it like it's perpendicular to my eyesight, but now the transformation fails.

It's time for M to go home. She leaves, L stays and seems very sleepy. I put on headphones and turn on music. It sounds awesome. I taste salt and smoke.

T+ 3:30 I think that trip is coming to an end, because it is now easier for me to form complex thoughts and to talk. L is sleeping, it's boring now.

No, looks like the trip has not ended yet.

T+ 4:00 I try to go to sleep. I can't figure out if I am hot or cold, if I am sweating or not, if I am hungry or full. When I look at my laptop's screen, it looks like it's covered in red-black dots. When I open IM messenger, its green-highlighted hyperlinks look very neat together with my blueish-green wallpaper, it looks like it's all moving a little bit, beautiful!

I am slightly shaking. I want to move my muscles to the beat of music. Music sounds great. I feel hungry.

It's still difficult to move. When I look at color yellow on my laptop's screen, I see it like green and red mixed. I read some logs in the messenger for the fifth time and every time I laugh at them :)

T+ 4:20 I've been lying in the bed with my eyes closed listening to music for 10 minutes, while watching fractals.

It feels especially nice to masturbate to the music.

At some point in time I fell asleep.

T+ 8:40 I woke up. There is no 2C-B effect anymore. I don't feel drunk.

I sat at the computer for some hours, cooked myself some food. At some point I went to sleep again but was unable to fall asleep for a long time.

From T+ 15:00 to T+ 19:00 I had a bad headache. I took aspirin to relieve it.

Overall the effects were not as fun as I thought they would be. Visuals were underwhelming. I will choose setting and people around me more carefully. But I will experiment with 2C-B I still have too.
