I was recently perscribed Ambien for insamnia, but as soon as I got home I went and looked it up online and for that people use it recreationaly. Iv done it 2 times befor, once insufflated and once oraly. So I found the best method is insufflated.

I woke up this morning veyr early and was quite bored so i crushed up two 10mg pills to a fine power. I seperated them into 4 lines because i knew i couldnt handle 2 big lines, or muchless one 20mg line. I have snorted Cocaine, morphine, and altoiods (Im not an idiot, it was for money) and I found that this hurts much much wose than any of them. anyways.

I got ready and snorted the first two lines. It burned and my eyes were watering, but I had no drip. Anyways, I sat there for a minute and right as the effects started to be noticable (less than 2 minutes after insufflated) the burning went away, and I quickly snorted another two lines. Then I sat back in my bed and relaxed for a few minutes.

After a few minutes went by and i was sure that all the Ambien was hiting me, i got up. I was very wobbly and it was difficult to walk. as if I was drunk, and my perseption was very bad.

I was trying to type something to someone, and every letter I typed the sound was caotic and it reminded me of a war. the clicking seemed endless, and I wasnt even sure what I was typeing. When I would try to focus on the letters I was typing the clicking of the keyboard seemed like hundreds of people talking to me at once, it was confusing.

Then at one point I realized if I closed my eyes daydreams seemed more real so I got off my computer and turned on The Doors. and during the song 'the end' I started to...I guess it was a dream, but my eyes were open, I was awake, and I had a thick black blanket over my head. It reminded me of CEVs of high doses of DXM. But the music was manipulating my 'dream' and I was manipulationg the music.

After a while I realized the music was realy realy loud, infact it was all the way up. so I turned it off. then much latter in the day I called a firend to see if they wanted to hang out, they told me that they called earlyer that day and asked me if I wanted to hang out, and aperently we talked for an hour. I didnt even remember it at all. I wonder what elce I did that I dont remember.

It was enjoyable, but i dont think I will do it again, it made me feel very dumb, as if I snorted a powder that tuned me into a helpless babaling retared for a few hours.
