I like to do benzo's sometimes to just chill and relax a bit. You could say I have a mild tolerance (4-5 times a moth use). I have used around 10 different benzo’s, but clonazepam was always my favorite.

Flunitrazepam was the benzo that I needed the right moment for, because this one was praised as the king of benzo’s that erased all your memory. So finally I had a friday after work and a day after free and wanted to try this one.

Disclaimer: I drink one or two beers sometimes with benzo’s. It is strongly advised to stay away from alcohol while taking them. Not only because drinking increases the memory erasing significantly, but also because you can die.

T + 0:00 I took 1.5mg flunitrazepam halfway of my 6% beer. I notice that I am a bit nervous for this benzo, but in a healthy way. I will play some games on my PC and wait for the effect. Mostly I notice the effects when I can’t read very well anymore or have issue’s with the game controls.

T + 0:30 I feel a mild relaxation, the familiar benzo buzz. Not that strong, but very noticable.

T + 0:35 Very noticeable increase in the effects. Even feel a mild euphoric edge which not all benzo’s have. This could become a nice evening. :)

T + 0:50 The effects seem (from what I am used) rather mild. I was expecting more from this. Maybe it’s my tolerance (took lormetazepam 3 days before) or it will take a bit longer to work. Will wait a bit longer and maybe redose 0.5mg and a beer.

T 1:00 Buzz is still not that heavy and walking goes very normal. I don’t have that "I have to watch out not to fall” feeling that I normally have while on benzo’s. The euphoric effects did not increase but sort of went away. The effect seem to be more sedating. I drink another beer.

T + 1:15 Feel sedated but not like I want to sleep which I have way more with temazepam or lormetazepam. Fluni would be the “even stronger” sleeping benzo, but it does not seem to be the case for me. I definitely notice that I find it hard to remember what I did like 10 or 20 minutes ago
I definitely notice that I find it hard to remember what I did like 10 or 20 minutes ago

T + 1:30 Time seems to pass by weirdly. I forget every time how long ago it was that I typed something here. I decide to redose 0.5mg.

T + 1:40 Definitely a big loss of grip on time and memory more than other benzo's

T + 1:50 I definitely make choices easier. Normally I would hold a bit back on rolling joint. Now I find it not a problem to smoke one.

T + 2:10 Smoked a joint with a little bit of hash. Now I definitely feel the effects. Very sedated and wobbly. Typing is hard. Gonna watch some TV.

T + 3:10 Very tired and sleepy. Feel quite fucked up. Not too bad to walk but very heavy. Going to bed now. Maybe the joint did not gave a very nice side effect.

T + 13:30 Woke up. Slept way longer than I am used to. Still feel dizzy and sedated. The kind of fucked up that I could just handle when I accidentally have to act sober but definitely not able to drive well.

T + 16:00 Still notice some memory impairment and sedation. Normally long acting benzo’s like diazepam or clonazepam give me a nice anxiety reduction during the day but now I just feel sedated and want to do nothing on the couch.

A strong benzodiazepine with way more sedating effects than others. I was hoping to find my new favorite but it actually ends up in the bottom few of my top 10.

Thinking back about the evening I can remember quite okay what happened. 2mg clonazepam for example, makes me lose more memory so I don’t know where all the scare stories come from.
