Alprazolam Slam

Noon: Looking through girlfriend's purse trying to find a sack of weed she told me to come out to her car and bring inside for a little smokey :) before I found the cronic I ran across a prescription for her labeled Alprazolam. Being a HUGE fan of opiate pain killers I examined the label and warnings and determined this shit would be fun if I took a few. I've taken lots of pharmisuticals before but had never ran into Xanax. I dicided to give it a go! I put 10 of the little yellowish orange pills in my pocket (each of these being .5 mg) and ran back inside with the nugs.

12:15 pm: We've just finished smoking and I told my g/f what I had found in her purse and asked her about them. She told me they made her feel loose and happy and just a little drunk at the same time. I thought that sounded very fun. The bottle had instructed her to take 1 pill three times a day. Considering her body weight and her lower tolerance than mine for any drug I went inside and tossed back all ten.

1:00 pm: I'm feeling reaaaaaallly weird. Not drunk. Not quite anyways. The sensation I was experiencing was totally different. I just didn't give a fuck about anything!!! I was having trouble walking and talking but for some reason I didn't even care. Well this is about the point where I blacked out, even though my girfriend and other buds later told me I was very conscious and acting VERY fucked up.

Well from that point untill I woke up in my bed the following saturday at 12:00 noon and remembered NOTHING. Not just like your memory gets fuzzy and kinda returns to you as the day goes on after a long night of drinking. I mean I dont remember anything at all!!!

This scared the shit out of me. I called my girlfriend and she said she'd come over right away. She said I was in a great mood that afternoon and everyone thought I was just totally drunk as fuck but they began to worry when It was 6 pm and I couldn't even stand to go to dinner with her. She said at that point she and my friends picked me up and put me in her car. They later told me that I felt like jello, my hands and arms were cold and was being really belligerent. I was unable to tell my girlfriend what was wrong with me because at this point I was so far gone I didn't remember what I had taken. I bacome totally confused not knowing what time it was or even what day! She told me some of the mean things I had said to her and my friends and I felt like a total ass. She said it was obviously not me talking. She took me home and put me in bed where I started sweating badly and mumbling things she couldn't understand. She waited with me, staying up all night and left in the morning when my breathing had become more normal.

Well after this experience I'm not excited to ever do Xanax agai. It is a powerful mind eraser and I can't say whether I had fun because to be honest I don't remember.
