It was Pretty Intense

Citation:   Mo. "It was Pretty Intense: An Experience with 2C-I (exp63395)". Oct 31, 2008.

20 mg oral 2C-I
I took it without really knowing the true possible outcomes... I thought I would just feel like I was rolling and see cool shapes however it began with an extremely intense rolling sensation. I first realized that I would be really fucked up soon when I was in the bathroom (lights off but door open leaving enough light to see a clear reflection) standing in front of the mirror and I thought I was looking in my purse at stuff. I realized I wasn't holding my purse and it was on my friends bed. WTF? But it didn't freak me out, I just thought it was somewhat comical and typical for someone who at times experiences skitzo feelings when really fucked up.

I eventually took a shower but this was the beginning of the worst part of the trip. The bathroom had a large mirror and a tub with a shower. I began to hallucinate for real at this point. I was in the shower and suddenly I began to notice the water on the wall so intensely the drops were so vivid and the ceiling morphed into an unsymmetrical form. The whole bathroom wasn't a square anymore but shaped more like a fun-house. For some reason my body felt like it was being forced into a spiral. I stood up and spun to my right where I was standing as if I couldn't control it. Even my hands and feet were aimed to the right and until I truly took notice that I could control them I finally just sat down so I wouldn't feel 'the force' anymore. (Later on my friend said he felt a similar force when he took one that night).

Note that the lights were on in the bathroom... while I was sitting I really started to hallucinate. When I breathed in it looked as if everything turned black or darker around me and while my arms were more white it was like I could see my all my veins in my body and they were dark. When I breathed out everything turned white, almost blinding. I breathed in and out like that maybe for a minute or so and I felt like the shower was turning evil on me. I tried to turn off the faucets and shower but kept fumbling until finally I figured it out but the shower was as if it was telling me to get out and commanded so right as the water stopped. I feared for a while that I was turning evil somehow and was unsure if I could return to my 'normal' mental state.

I sat there for a minute but I couldn't analyze anything because each second something new was occurring... some visualization or feeling. The 'bad trip' was only about 1/5 of the whole experience though.

I finally got out and after talking to my sober friend who told me to stop 'having a bad trip' I finally began to enjoy the more popularized outcomes of it. The carpet had an amazing pattern on it and I saw colors in various places all over the rooms. I was somewhat incoherent to other people but at least my bad trip was over.

My friend drove me around and across this really long bridge. I felt so small in my car and as if I was practically flying over the water. I pictured my friend as some sort of fun character and we rode around in my car like it was some funmobile or something.

My trip lasted almost 8 hours start to finish... It was like rolling in that the effects began to come and go and diminished over time. I enjoyed the experience but probably won't do it again because it was pretty intense.
