Dreaming Without Sleep

    MDMA (pill / tablet)


Over the last 2 years I have been using ecstacy and for a 7 month period (when I lived in england) I used it extensively. I probably had 150 pills, perhaps even more in that time. Twice I have had 10 pills or over in one sitting and usually by that point things get a bit messy. By the end of the 7 months I was taking ecstacy more for the hallucinations rather than the lovey effect, as the hallucinations I experiences were far different and more controllable than those on mushrooms or lsd.

When having several eat once, sometimes I get to the point where the easiest thing I can do is sit down and just relax and close my eyes. In this time it is easy to be in a different reality, it seems like I are somewhere else (usually at work for me which really sucked), and I interact with people (in my mind) but say things to them out-loud which usually gets a few laughs from people around me who bring me back to reality quite quickly.

Now two years later I often find myself starting to dream before I'm actually asleep. I can feel my bed, and hear everything around me but my mentality is like that of a dream. I often just force myself to sit up for a little and think to myself 'Why the hell was I thinking about painting a cement parrot blue?', or some other topic that is as weird and has as little relevance. When I am thinking about these things I visualise them but I have no idea why I am doing so, therefore I conclude it is a dreamlike state. Usually I visualise things because I chose to do so.

This is not an unpleasant effect but I have decided to reduce my pill intake to under 10 a year. More recently I've found if I have too many pills my vision just blurs and I find it hard looking at people at all. All I'm saying is I gotta know when the high is over and accept it, there's no point pushing it too far.
