Deschloroketamine... Kind of disappointed. Not the real deal, sadly.

After being unable to procure real ketamine for almost a decade, I decided to give this a shot.

Took 2 very small lines in the evening had some fun (played guitar hero on bass, which I never do, guitar was too fast for me and I was just vibing), watched a couple of music videos and danced a bit, then watched a couple of my favourite movie scenes, which was fun.

All was OKish, but I still missed the most important thing that got me into ketamine the first place: the absolute weirdness of it. A decade ago I had 100% pure ketamine from an Indian pharmacy, and the high it produced was incomparable to any other drug I ever took in my life. It was so weird that I could never remember the feeling when getting down, and each successive trips started with "omg yes! This is what it feels like. How could I have forgotten?"

All that quality was lacking from this substitute. It still gave ma a fun body feeling, which makes me suppose that its more of a mixture chemical to be mixed with LSD or similar, when the music demands for some serious robot moves.

What turned me off from this the most is that the next day I was still feeling like walking on a moving ship, so much that I was barely able to function.

Also felt very tired, even after drinking 2 cups of coffee (which is a lot for me, since I cultivate a caffeine tolerance).

Definitely not for people which have to be functional the next day. This also turns me off trying larger doses. I think for me this will just be an option to mix a line or two into an acid trip now and then, just for that extra added body feeling while dancing.

I'm still not sure if chirality has to do with the stuff I got back then being so awesome. I heard that chirality plays a big part for ketamine, and there were two major brands in Indian drug stores back then, one which had the reputation of being the purest and best thing you can get.

One think to keep in mind though, back then I wasnt even 30, and I could actually sleep off any potential hangovers without being woken up by kids, plus my body was still in its late 20ies. So my experience might be totally subjective :)

Edit: afternoon the next day, 14 hours after ingesting, I still have trouble walking straight, feel like on a rocking boat, definitely not baseline, and not in a comfortable way either. Cant remember real ketamine taking that long to wear off, or producing unpleasant side effects.
