My First Acid Adventure

I had previously taken magic mushrooms (cubensis) but never taken LSD. I had only smoked marijuana and done mushrooms up until the night I decided to do acid. My friend told me he had really strong tabs so I bought a couple thinking I'd go have a few with my mates or something like that, until I decided to start tripping.

Instead, I decided to get high with my mates who were there already, and they said they could be trip sitters because they weren't on hallucinogens (just smoking weed and one was on ecstasy).

I took one 160ug tab and was waiting and smoking marijuana which caused my perception of time to be slightly off. I thought it had been awhile and I wasn't feeling the LSD at all yet, I just felt pretty stoned smoking bongs almost back to back. After about 20-40 minutes, I decided to take another tab (making the total acid taken around 320ug) and sit for awhile.

After I took the second tab there was not much time before the LSD started working. It felt as if a switch had been flipped and I was 100% sure I was feeling the effects. For the first half hour or so I spent so much time laughing my face hurt the next day and my abs hurt. After that time I'm not entirely sure but it felt like the second tab kicked in and I started experiencing a level of high I never have before.

I remember looking at somebody telling them they need to calm down they're too high and they need to relax and they look so fucked up, then my mates explained to me later I was talking to myself in the mirror. I ended up staring into my long hair seeing it move and change colour and light intensity without actually moving it or doing anything. The walls of my mates house were breathing heavily at the same time as I was. The walls and I had synchronised breathing patterns for awhile when I started seeing patterns on the ceiling. I felt a bit surprised but not in a bad way, so I tried to close my eyes and relax for a moment but experienced intense closed eye visuals which were more colourful and more abstract patterns than with my eyes open.

I kept my eyes open and my friends constantly tried to keep me in a good state of mind, which they managed to.
My mate had to pick up his girlfriend from work, and he didn't want to leave anyone in his house alone or me by myself for safety reasons. He gave me an hour roughly before we had to go get her to get myself ready apparently, but it took most of that time tripping and sitting on the floor putting my shoes on.

As we were about the leave the peak set in, three of us got in his car (me in the back) and he started driving. It was night and everything was dark, but it felt as if I was running very very fast or flying through the air because my window was open. It was one of the best feelings of my life, it felt like flying at high speeds or just cruising beyond my body. Since I was tripping so hard I didn't get any motion sickness for the most part, I was too busy looking around and phasing into different realities. I found that transitioning from being in one room or place or even looking at one spot to another felt like a significant change in the world and reality and everything.

I forgot I was in my friends car and on the floor in the back there is a raised section behind the middle console, I started stroking it and praising it, thinking it was my mate's dog. My mates both laughed at me very hard.

We got to his girlfriends work (Mcdonalds) and one of my mates went in to get me water. He came back and gave it to me and firstly it was too heavy to hold, then for the next few hours I kept trying to hand it to different people asking if it was their drink I was holding.

On the way back I was in absolute stupor and still peaking, laughing and watching the patterns form in my mate's car.
As we arrived back they invited my close friend over to make sure I was okay and to me he appeared out of nowhere or a portal or something in the night and I just started yelling his name and hugging him and laughing until everyone told me to be quiet because it was late. Instead of going straight back into my mates house I stared at some trees and saw them all swirling around and animals move around in them in the dark which didn't exist. The stars seemed to draw figures and patterns and visibly move significant distances. I eventually went back into my mates house and he put some music videos on which I listened to and enjoyed but mostly tripped out hard at how many 'layers' or visual layers I was seeing in the videos.

Probably a good 8 or 10 hours after taking the second tab, I was feeling very tired and very good still, like the nice feeling of ecstasy. I just lay down and tripped out for a long time and fell asleep. My dreams were extremely vivid although very abstract. My dreams were more hallucinatory than my waking hallucinations. I felt as if they were real and they confused me much more.

The next day I woke up with a brutal headache and everything was too bright for me, so I had to wear sunglasses the entire day. It was pretty ruthless doing 320ug for my first time, however, I did not experience any bad trip (which I have later from taking lower dosages of different acid) nor did I feel nauseated or like throwing up or experiencing diarrhea (which generally happens as I come down from hallucinogens). My body recovered extremely well other than the pounding headache which I got rid of with some painkillers or paracetamol. I can't remember all of the trip vividly, but it was the most intense experience I've ever had with drugs, moreso than cocaine, speed, mushrooms, hashish, etc.
