Walking Through Walls

.25 cups inhaled Ether
[Erowid Note: Our understanding of the literature is that there is no such thing as safe recreational use of volatile solvents, aerosols and other street inhalants : their psychoactive effects are inseparable from nerve and organ damage. We have chosen to include these reports to help document the real world use of inhalants, but their inclusion is not intended to imply that they are anything but dangerous.]
[Erowid Note: The "water extraction" method is ineffective in separating diethyl ether from the volatile hydrocarbon liquids/gases in "starter fluid". Our understanding of the literature is that there is no such thing as safe use of volatile hydrocarbon gases: their psychoactive effects are inseparable from nerve and organ damage.]
I bought a can on engine started fluid from an auto parts store. Hearing about ehter, and getting some nitrous soon I decided to try this to be able to compare. I sprayed about 1/2 a cup of the liquid in a gatorado bottle, pourse some water in and then drained of the bottom layer. Then I poured it onto a rag and went into my room. I sat down with my back against the door and put the rag to my face. With the first two inhalations I got a very big head rush, and starting seeing black with glowing stars. I inhaled from the rag about 2 or 3 more times, and the next thing I know, the whole world is rotating. I am being pushed through my door into my hallway, and I can see where my sock got stuck under the door between my room and my hallway from when I went thru the door. Then I close my eyes and open them and I am staring at tile, and I wonder where I am. And I look up and I am in a bathroom with doors on both sides an old nightmare of mine, and both doors are locked. It all feels real, and then I freak out because if its real tehn I am stuck in here forever. I finally unlock one of the doors and walk out and I'm in my hallway. Thats when I realized I had passed out and dreamt of being sucked thru the walls and being trapped in a bathroom. It was all very realistic and it was very cool. I was still very confused but it was pretty amazing. I will probably do it again soon.
