I was able to purchase PCP from a good friend who made various drugs available to me. This was sold to me in a large joint, and because of my nature I was quite excited to try it, not knowing what it would do.

I went to a bathroom window, opened it, and smoked it at approximately 8 p.m. I lit the joint and took several deep inhalations, exhaling out the window into the night air. When the joint was burned about 1/3 of the way, I felt incredibly intoxicated and put it out. I turned around, and the bathroom sink looked incredibly small and far away. I realized everything appeared very distant and far away. My heart was pounding too fast

, so I layed on the floor for a moment. When I closed my eyes I had visions of green plants sprouting all around me. I stood to leave the bathroom. The sizes and shapes of everything was distorted. As I attempted to open the door, I realized that I could not control my thoughts, meaning my thoughts were randomly jumping to unrelated things. I went to my bedroom. At this point the being unable to form a normal thought seemed frightening for some reason. I became frightened and wanted it to end. Because the bizarre visual features seemed to make it worse, I turned off the light and got into bed. In the dark I saw many bizarre visions many of which I can't remember, but a huge great being wearing a helmet which morphed into a large grey wall stands out in my memory.

In the morning, I showered and dressed, and went to get on a bus. My nature being what it is, I decided to smoke "just a little" before the bus came. I crossed the street and hid beside a building to take a few hits. I took too much.

I was hurrying to finish before the bus arrived, and I took too much, smoking more of the half joint than I intended, nearly finishing it. I ran back to the bus stop just in time. The bus pulled up, and as I stepped into the, the site of my foot stepping on board confirmed I had taken too much: the foot and the step onto the were distorted: clear but the sizes were all distorted.

I went to my seat on the bus. The inside of the bus appeared to be a giant oblong tube. I realized that I could not understand what people were saying, nor could I form words. I could not form words or put thoughts together, then I realized that my hands were completely numb. I slapped the bus seat a bit and realized I could not feel anything. I remember looking out of the window and seeing the sun, recognizing it as the sun, and realizing that I am in an altered state and I will just have to do the best I can. It was not quite frightening, but disconcerting because I could not talk.

When I exited the bus, every direction I walked seemed to be downhill. I started shivering a little (it was not cold). Going anywhere I had planned was out of the question. I found a picnic table and rested my head on my folded arms. Suddenly I became two giant tunnels, which seemed to be my ear canals... I was the two huge canals which suddenly had giant hairs on them, with each hair wiggling to a specific tone I was hearing. I was hearing lots of tones from the surrounding environment, and each tone caused a hair to shimmer and vibrate. It was bizarre but not unpleasant.

This condition lasted for approximately 3 to 4 hours, with ability to think and speak gradually returning. As the effects faded, color seemed to become less vivid until everything was almost the same color. This returned to normal later in the day.

The experience was very interesting, but debilitating in that I could not interact with people, so it would be best to be somewhere safe and secure instead of out in public.

I had one more opportunity to try this again, weeks later. That is a separate experience to relate! I would note that it can be scary.
