It's been about a week since my trip(s), but I remember them like they were 5 minutes ago. I planned on heading over to my college house for the weekend. It was one of my roommates birthday, so I figured this time away from home would be the best time to take my first try of salvia. I had read about it for about 5 months now, and I was very interested in it. I actually bought from online before, but was skrewed over with not receiving a quality product (didn't feel any effects at all). So anyway, I had it sent to the house so it was waiting for me when I got there.

I didn't try it until about 4pm. It was two roommates, and one of their friends whom I trusted. We sat down in a sun-lit room in the basement. It is a very small room. I got out my bong and we poured some leaf into the bowl. I flicked the torch lighter a couple times before it worked, took a deep breath, and told everyone I was nervous. I inhaled a decent hit and held the lighter and bong out in front of me. I smirked as I went down into a hole, and I was looking up and out of it, mainly at the one friend in the room. I was talking in a very high pitch voice asking everyone 'What the F*ck is going on?!', I wasn't scared, just more of surprised. I forgot I was on Salvia, it just felt like I was dreaming. My head was spinning, and I felt very safe like nothing I did would matter to anybody. I felt like everyone else was feeling exactly as I did right then, so I felt like nothing could go wrong. As I came back, I realized I had just acted like a complete fool. I couldn't explain what happened, I could only pass the bong and tell them to experience it for themselves.

This wasn't the big big one, that would come later when I would smoke again at about 8pm. Same room, almost same people, but much darker, just a candle and whatever sunlight was left. I was the first to go again, but this time was a much bigger bowl. I took it in, held it, but I don't remember exhaling at all. I was completely out of my body. The only sense I had left was sight. As before I forgot immediately that I smoked salvia and it was just a trip. All of a sudden, there was no such thing as humans or earth or anything. All I could see was what looked like I was looking down a folded piece of paper and had the feeling that I was at the end of my existence. I had no memories, no substance, i was just there in space. I was flying very slowly down this folded dimension mostly red in color. My only thoughts were 'This is life, this is how everything is, this is existing.' It was very dark in my visual, probably because of the dark room. After a little while I started coming down and could make out a face in the redness of my world. It was my roommates, and felt familiar but it was just his face with no substance. He was talking to me, but I have no idea what he was saying. As I was coming down, more and more things felt familiar, but each thing that I familiarized with again I thought, 'Ok, this is existence, I remember this' when actually I was still in space'. I started to have feeling again and I became happier and happier as more things fell back into place in my head. When it was all over, I just sat there and was happy to be back home in my body and have sensation. Still today I am happy that being a human being and everything that is life, is what it is (and not what I was for those 5 minutes of my trip). It was half-way scary and think I am going to make sure I am in a well lit room from now on.
