So. It was finals week and I was planning to get some Adderall and perhaps morphine off of my freind. From waht I've heard Adderall is really nice for studying, and I figured I'd save sme for later and mix it with the morphine, since stimulants mixed with opiates are supopsedly incredible. At the last minute my freind shows up with one tiny white pill that says AMB10 on it, and I get a bit peeved, becuase he says this is an Ambien sleeping pill. Besides that, there's only one, and I dont think one is enough to trip off of. He gave it to me free for some reason, and I kept it I my pocket until I went home. After attempting to study I realized I just had to try it.

At around 9:45, I took the pill wih some coffee. I thought since this would supposedly knock me out like a light the caffeine would help, and seeing as it was semi-late, if I did crash, it would be okay. In about ten minutes I felt something, but I figured this was just my imagination, but after fifteen minutes, I could tell something was definitely happening. This stuff hits surprsingly fast, and twenty minutes in I was hallucinating completely. There were all manner of visual distortions. For example, my computer slowly slid into my desk, and the strings on my guitar were suddenly a foot above the neck of the guitar. THey seemed completly real, and it was only by attempting to play then that I realized I was hallucinating. There was generally everythgn movien and objects coming out of the computer screen towards me, and the various I'm boxes I had open were flying all around the screen. I find it interesting that shapes with square corners were especially affected. There was a general rocking motion back and forth, leading me to believe that I was on a boat.

It was this idea that fueled the most peculiar part of the trip. The entire thing reminded e of being a DJ at a party on a boat heading to Jamaica. It's not that I was seeing water or any such thing, rather, I was thinking of how much this reminded me of that, though I've never done anythign like that before. There was a general sense of being with other people, of the warmth and comfort of close freinds, and I told someone online that it reminded me of when I was God.

The problem with Ambien I think, is the duration. I took 10 mg, and I was back to almost baseline in an hour and a half. One thing I find interesting is I didnt feel sleepy at all, just amazed by how great I felt. As far as after effects, I felt some unusual sleepyness the next day, but there was no hangover whatsoever. This is an absolutely AMAZING drug, and I intend to explore higher doses in the future.
