Ok to start of with we were all incredible naive to think that any product that you buy over the counter will produce hullicinations.
Numerous times at parties , school etc we've been told that Abisnthe will produce similar effects to LSD which was something most of us want to try although are still quite unsure of and leave well alone. But anyway most people tell us that you drink it and trip out.

So we went and and got the bottle from this absolute twat of a bottle shop owner who's refused to sell us booze in the past. So we take it home and start doing shots.

We spent alot of time thinking to ourselves fuck when's this stuff gunna kick in we've been drinking it all night and nothing.

But besides the complete disappointment it was actually a nice drink if one does not dillute it.
Adding the water and sugar just makes it worse, not to mention setting it on fire which is the mother stupidity
We didnt trip out even in the slightest and we didnt feel drunk and we didnt feel hung over when we woke up. All that really happened was that we all talked for hours on end which may not have even been a side effect. Everything was very clear unlike any of my other experiences with alcohol or pot but I wouldn't go out and buy the stuff again because of its cost.

All in all it was a great drink and a good night despite the fact that allot of people seemed to be bullshiting us, the drink was somewhat enjoyable and mellow.
