Good and a Little Too Intense

Citation:   rye rye. "Good and a Little Too Intense: An Experience with 1,4-Butanediol (exp12872)". May 12, 2016.

4.5 ml oral 1,4-Butanediol (liquid)


On Halloween night I had purchased a liter of 1,4-butanediol (from now on I'm using the abreveation 'b') from a FOAF for a reasonable price. I've had experiences with this chemical before but this time I wanted to see what this substance had to offer. I was so excited and we went to the local pool hall to celebrate. I was very ready to experience this.

Ingesting time: 7:00 p.m.
Dosage: 4.5mL

(T+20 minutes)
A fuzzy lightheadness came over my body. I can tell a noticable effect, of my motor skills were impaired.

(T+40 minutes)
A definite noticable intoxication was at hand here. I realized that I probably should not be playing pool...especially in a public place. Now this was odd because it seemed to be that I was a better pool player than I have ever been. Even though when looking at the balls knowing 2 were there...but seeing 4.(had to compensate by closing one eye the rest of the night when it was my shot). The pool table looked to be collapsed and swaying....but I realized that I was the one swaying. Then I realized I needed to sit down. I almost fell over sitting in my chair.

(T+60 minutes)
I realized what a POWERFUL substance this is and how it could be used as a sleep inducer. I LOVE it, I can compare it to a HEAVY alcohol stupor but with a small touch of euphoria. The BUZZ is so intense I can barely stay awake. Sociability VERY increased, fun to talk.

(T+1 hour+30 minutes)
I'm doing the head bob and am somehow still at the pool place. I can't stay awake. I'm feeling a little bit of nausea and I contemplate the idea of vomiting. But I won't.

(T+1 hour+45 minutes)
The high is good but a little too intense I think I will try 4.2 next time. It feels like a weight on my head pushing down telling me to go to sleep. Very much like alcohol but better no excessive drinking, and the high is better.

My friend took 2.5 puked and passed out on my toilet. And almost asphyxiated on his vomit if it wasn't for me.
