Set/Setting
Getting ready for a party. With a group of friends to celebrate my birthday weekend. A little bit anxious but excited to try a new compound! I have some experience with various Phenethylamines in the past, and would like to compare my reaction to DOC in various settings tonight. I take a daily dose of Clonazolam due to my dependence. This has been going on for the past few weeks but I do not believe my morning dosage affected the effects of the DOC. In this case, I dosed 1.5mg of Clonazolam (I have heavy tolerance, this is not a big amount for me) at around 11AM.

10:50PM
I take my tab and a half (3.5mg overall), and head to my friends dorm room and get our friends ready to go over to an apartment. My friend also took 2mg, and is one of the people who I spent the entire night with. I want to explore the stimulating effects in a social/party setting, and use mushrooms to sedate me at the peak. I am trying to not have expectations, but remain curious. We begin our walk, and upon arrival I weigh out two grams of Psilocybe Cubensis for later. I am unsure if I notice any differences as we get ready for the party.

11:52PM
We arrived at the party and as I tried talking to people and started feeling warm, social and energetic. Noticing a difference in my headspace. Slight phenethylamine rush which is sedating yet energetic and encouraging. Feeling warmth in my face, analyzing the people around me more so than normally. At moments, I feel immensely awkward and out of place while other moments I feel confident and talkative. The humid room began making me feel overheated. There is a strong head high, and simple yet pretty visuals seeping into my FOV. My friend appeared to be much more overwhelmed by the people and music, yet managed to maintain interest and conversations with others.

I feel like I am in a rush to type, stressing about my report in an overwhelming environment. On our way back, we grabbed drinks and snacks at a nearby 7/11. I ate 2 grams of cubes (1:30AM) as we were walking around. Once we got back to my friend's apartment, I noticed the visuals really kicked in. I can’t sit still on the couch. I am talking to everyone a lot more than usual. Huge boost in confidence. The mushrooms are coming in sedating waves.

After sinking into the couch for minutes I’m back on my feet moving in sync with the music. I felt genuinely happy, and content with the present and future ahead of me. A very rare but brief period of time began for me where I was not concerned about any of my responsibilities or worries outside of the room I was in. I could enjoy the moment, and understand how precious it is to accept it.

The visuals from DOC are lighter than other phenethylamines like 2C-B and 25B-NBOH. They are sharp, and allow me to see into every single detail of everything around me. With applied geometry. I have restless legs, my body is shaking and I need to move around. Sitting still is uncomfortable, but moving around is extremely enjoyable. I decided to box my friend who is also on DOC, which was a short but personally intense moment. I quickly ran out of breath, and tapped out when I was satisfied with my own performance (for someone who doesn't box). I did have an exhilarating moment with him, and certainly let out some energy the DOC was fueling me with. Talking to others is far easier than usual, and I feel like a whole new person in this social setting. DOC is a very physically encouraging compound, yet not so introspective. We are all sitting around a table listing to music, I have brief moments of mental dysphoria typical from any psychedelic, but goes away when changing what I’m doing. I feel very in control of myself and the experience itself. I don’t need to be in control of it, but I am!

2:00AM
The Mushrooms have begun realllllyyy setting in. My body is much more relaxed, yet not enough to dull the almost manic headspace DOC was giving me. We decide we want to step it up a notch, and pack bowls in a bong of Tobacco and Cannabis (We like to call them “Chops”). I do not remember how many hits or bowls I did, but I quickly began tripping harder than I had before. A strong nicotine rush reminiscent of my first, followed by a heavy and couch lock inducing stoning effect set in. I did not want to move, but I did not let my inebriation hold me back from enjoying the experience. Shapes danced to the music all around me, objects changing sizes and different rates and ancient patterns like visuals coated my surroundings. Nothing was sitting still, just like my legs. I began to reflect on my life and those who have been closest to me throughout it. Closing my eyes I witnessed what I would describe to be visions. Watching the important people talk to me about my own life, and what it means to them. Watching a conversation between me and my father, as if I was opening my own anxieties up and untying them involuntarily. Relief filled my skull and body as these conversations with various people played out. I finally opened my eyes to my friend telling me how the “Chops” were getting too intense, but still manageable. I would agree with him on this one, but I wouldn't let it ruin my fun.

I watched my life play out in countless scenarios/conversations, and watched different versions of my life and my loved ones/friends play out before my very eyes. I saw how every feeling and action was caused by and will cause many others. This is simply one of the levels of psychedelic headspaces which is very difficult to put into words. But each moment had different colors, shapes and emotions twined together with them. Later, I came to a realization that I only exist in a brief period of the entire span of time, and It is only up to me to make the most of it. This thought itself was exhilarating, and got me back on my feet.

6:20AM
I joke about the “chops”' from earlier with my other friend who hosted our trip session. We agreed we overdid it a little, but I have no regrets as they pushed me into a state of mind I was striving for to begin with. Possibly difficult experiences have now become far more manageable because of my repeated use of psychedelics. It is about your attitude before and throughout the experience. I was able to choose to enjoy it, and it worked for me.

We continue to smoke while my visuals begin dissipating over the next couple hours. I am stuck with restless leg syndrome and residual stimulation. I also noticed varied levels of vasoconstriction and pins/needles throughout the experience, mostly near the end.

LATER IN THE DAY
Throughout the rest of the day, I slept until much later in the evening. I am very grateful to have experienced such a unique and satisfying combination, and I hope to continue my research into phenethylamine/tryptamine combinations. DOC itself was FAR more stimulating than LSD, 2C-B and 25B-NBOH. This has sparked a newfound interest in Psychedelic Amphetamines in particular. I would like to warn anyone who does not smoke often about the risk involved when mixing Cannabis with strong psychedelics, you may find yourself in a brand new experience which could be harder to navigate on your own. Through breathing, self assurance and acceptance I was able to let go of any anxiety at the very peak.
