I was doing a lot of traveling, and I absolutely hate flying. It's not that I get scared or anything, I just hate being cramped into those little seats next to large people, breathing recycled air, and barely being able to move. I knew a little about the effects of Vicodin, so I thought it might make me feel a little more relaxed.

I took one pill (7.5 mg) about an hour before I boarded the plane, and once I finally did board I was feeling _very_ loose. As in, I couldn't keep my hands clasped (fingers interlaced) in front of me, my hands would just slide apart because my fingers were too loose. It was nice, I was relaxed and happy and felt kind of like jelly.

One thing to note is that I had gotten about 3 hrs of sleep in the past three days combined, so my mental state was already a little messed up. The vicodin did make me a little sleepier. I took a second pill about an hour into the flight. I was trying to read a magazine, and in the beginning I was ok. Then later on I couldn't focus on teh words, and I know I kept slipping in and out of sleep though I couldn't tell when. I think I slept most of the latter half of the flight. When we arrived, after 2 hours, I still felt it. Got my luggage, got my ride, and promptly conked out in the car, sleeping pretty deeply.

When I woke up I was pretty disoriented, this was partially lack of sleep and some the pills. My skin felt a little rubbery and I felt all around a little strange. Not that bad of an experience, good for flying, definitely.
