Pretty neutral day, nothing really happened of note. Setting is at my PC, after the rest of the family has gone to bed. A certifiably safe setting.
Took 8 Panafen Plus, with a cold water extraction done. Best case, 102mg of codeine. I mixed in 2 spoonfuls of icing sugar to mask the arse taste of 'pharmaceutical', blocked my nose and chugged. About half a glass of water, I guess it went down smooth (compared with say, HBWR with a utter gag-reflex kinda thing) bit of an aftertaste, but nothing to bad, gone after a few minutes. Now to sit back and wait....
Nice n relaxed, prone to giggling and smiling, feel a little heavy, but good. Generally feeling really nicely chilled. Kinda feel like I wanna do something or talk to someone, but there isn't really anyone on at midnight... Might write an email...
Just finished an email to a mate, who I promised id fill him in on what its like, so I figured while peaking would be a good time to tell him. Here is a few little excerpts from it:
Lets see, defiantly sedated. Arms = heavy. Just scratched my nose and it took a lot of effort. If I just *do* things, like type or surf or pat the cat, its fine. But thinking 'pick up that water bottle' I can do it, but its like.... Uurhgnnngh... Effort, OK..., and I do it. Like most people have said, I don't really care about that much. Its just like, 'yeah, whatever”, but in a nice way. I don't not care, as harsh as that sounds, its just good by me, whatever. As for the happiness/euphoria, happy yes, euphoric not really. Smiling is easy. Like it just comes. For example, when *C* came back on for a little, it was big happys, and shit she was saying was so funny I cried. I don't think it was that funny tho... When I look back at it, its like 'why was I laughing then?? Oh well”. Euphoria... Is close. I read somewhere that one wont see euphoria under 150mg, (I'm on 100), but I can feel it just a little way off. Nothing like an LSA euphoria, which is a body-tactile-throw-me-there feeling. This is more... Soft, cosy, snuggly happy, from the inside. I think more later will be defiantly be required, this was just a primer.
Ooh, another weird sensation. I'm cold, and warm at the same time. I know I'm cold, like, the basic message 'your cold, get warmer' is there, but I don't feel the cold? I know it doesn't make sense, but hey. Its the same as with the LSA, the light is waaaaay to bright, my brain knows that, but I cant shrink my pupils down, and it dosent look bright or washed out.
The rest of the email basically continued our talk from MSN that night, I think it helped me get things off my chest because I could present thoughts and feelings, without really feeling the feelings (?).
Although I wasn't planning on using any Nitrous Oxide on this experience (prefer first time un-adultered etc), I saw my cracker there and thought... Aah, what the fuck. I'm gonna assume people know a nitrous trip, there are plenty of good ones around, I was concentrating on the codeine side of things. The nitrous pretty much steam-trained over the codeine feelings, except for 2 visual things (which I wasn't expecting at all). There was little distortions, kinda like a pebble-thrown-in-pond effect, but one on each side, the ripples melding together. I could still read and everything, it was just an overlay or something. The other was physically moving my head closer to the screen and back again produced an effect that I can only describe as the preview window when zooming in and out in photo shop. Thats just what it was like. Weird but cool.
Just surfed, chillin, listenin to music etc. Starting to come down, and decide its time for bed. Sleep comes very easy. In fact, I don't really remember my head hitting the proverbial pillow.
7:30 (next day)
Woke up slowly (as per usual) but there was no hangover or anything. Throughout the day felt pretty good, was working outside and it was a lovely day, so I couldn't complain about that. I thought about this a lot less than other psychoactives I've used, possibly because it mainly changes how I felt rather than how I thought or see things.
In summary, quite nice indeed. Defiantly something to be repeated, its cheap cost (I used about AUD1.50 (~1USD) worth of ingredients) being a favorable attribute. Now I've got a feel for them, ill probably increase the dose a little.
I know its very cliche, but I can seriously see the addictive potential here. The pull off it is pretty strong, and I'm not an addictive personality. I'm not gonna hark on about it, but everyone else is quite correct when they talk about its potential for abuse.
