DOSE:
  sublingual ALD-52 (blotter / tab)

BODY WEIGHT: 140 lb


Today was my first day microdosing. I got up 45 minutes earlier than usual (had some Etizolam the night before, good sleeps) and I cut off a sliver of one of my 100ug ALD-52 blotters. The piece I cut off was probably anywhere between 15-25ug. On my way to the bus I placed the blotter under my tongue.

I started to notice the effects a few minutes into first period, woodshop. I'd realized I'd likely taken slightly more than the average microdose when the teacher was demonstrating how to use one of the power tools

, and when he stepped away, there was a splotch of yellow and green where he was previously standing. Soon after seeing that my anxiety got the best of me followed by everyone's favorite...nausea. Once I'd started working on my project the nausea and anxiety subsided. The period ended with no botched woodwork and more importantly, no lost fingers!

As the day went on I felt more and more energetic (as if I drank two or three cups of coffee) and I was way more talkative and social than I usually am. I had an overall positive attitude. It seemed as if everything that happened was good and positive, like when you're having one of those 'good days'.

At lunch my friends asked me where we were going to go to eat during open campus. It was at this moment that I realized I wasn't hungry at all even though I'm usually quite famished by this time of the day.

After lunch the day flew by. Everything was good and it was overall a great day microdosing! Additionally, I felt a mile more productive and motivated to get stuff done than usual. In conclusion, this was a great experience and I will certainly do it again in the future.
