Prolonged Difficulty
25I-NBOMe & Alcohol

  repeated oral Alcohol  
  1.5 hits buccal 25I-NBOMe (blotter / tab)

Night was started with heavy drinking, most likely contributed to the rough experience.

T+0:00. At 10:30PM I placed the tab and a half in amongst my gums and let it sit, my friend also joining me, washed down by more alcohol. There was distinct chemical/odd taste, like some sort of cleaning product had been squirted in my mouth.

T+0:15. I proceeded to swallow the tab and the other half, not sure on my reasoning on this, also can't confirm if it had any more effect than if the tabs were spat out. Of course another stupid idea to take this dosage.

T+0:30. Effects are starting to hit, feeling extremely stimulated. Quite a heavy body load at this point and a rapid come-up. I look at the television and it looks like a oil painting, some sort of tunnel vision effects happening. Colours are intensified and tracers are appearing in and out my vision.

T+0:45. Started to lose track of time at this point and couldn't really handle the body load or over-stimulation that appeared to be occuring. Eyes were extremely dilated and I had a very dry mouth.

T+1:00. I leave everyone downstairs and proceed to grab myself a glass of water, I decided that in my current state I didn't want anyone to see me like this. I looked at myself in the mirror in the bathroom upstairs, my face was completely red and I was sweating profusely which was disturbing at this point.

T+1:00-5:00. For about these 4 hours it was spent alone vomiting up anything and throwing water in my face in attempt to cool down myself. Felt like this would really never stop and looking back on it, it was most likely more serious than I thought. Two of my friends did talk to me for a brief time and they seemed worried by the state I was in. The excessive amount of alcohol was surely part to blame in this case, adding to the dehydration that I was experiencing. Towards the end I went above a floor into the converted loft and sank into the bed where I was having insane CEV's, all sorts of geometric patterns in multi colours. Quite amazing at the time. Looked out the window and trees were leaving tracers whilst glistening in the moonlight.

T+5:30. Residual psychedelic effects are still there - more pronounced if I close my eyes. I feel some stimulation still there.

T+6:00-10:30. From this time I literally just sit hoping for this time to pass and toss and turn in the upstairs bed. Awful paranoia and anxiety creeping up on me.

T+10:30-12:30. Finding this extremely difficult for my brain to operate properly on the comedown. Feel like my head's been split open with a blade and my brains been put on a frying pan and threw back in. Very cracked out feeling. This feeling persisted and only got worse, no matter how tired I was, I couldn't sleep.

Around 12PM (Noon) I walk home with the driest mouth I've ever experienced. Surreal feeling throughout the walk home. I don't feel normal.

From the time I got home till 3PM I just lay tossing and turning unable to sleep, after waking I had a disgusting headache. I sleep until 6PM and wake up just as bad.

I was on a comedown of sorts for about 2-4 weeks, had no motivation at all. Until this day I can't consume any form of cannabis as it makes me have panic attacks ultimately due to this night seeing as before I was able to moderately consume cannabis. It also appears like I'm going through this 25i trip again, visuals and all every-time I do consume it.

I still see visual snow if I'm in a room with flat colours, like I'm cursed with this. I am however feeling much better - about a year later.
