.25 mg oral Pharms - Alprazolam (pill / tablet)
  1.75 mg oral Pharms - Alprazolam (pill / tablet)


I had a job interview that day, and the job entails talking to clients over phones and closing deals, so I thought of this great idea to take some xannies. Well I broke a 1mg blue football up in half the times which is equivalent to a .25 each. At the beginning of the interview I was still quite nervous, my hands were shaking a bit. But about after an hour of ingestion, I could finally talk freely. I did not feel uncomfortable talking and I aced the interview. Got the job on the spot.

So to celebrate, I went home and took the .75mg left over and another 1mg pill. I could feel the effects starting to kick in about 15 minutes later. I was incoherent and I felt really drunk. I remember laying on my bed wishing I took perks instead, and at the same time I somehow fell off of my bed right on top of my guitar. Looking around felt really hard to do. I wasn't tired but my body and eyes were all so heavy that I could not help but to pass out right on top of my guitar. (Which did not break somehow)

2-3 hours later I woke up went downstairs still feeling extremely fucked up, grabbed some pasta salad, brought it back up to my room, lied back down, and ate it while trying to keep my head on the pillow because it was too hard to sit up. After that I passed out again.

The next morning I was still feeling the effects but not as severely. For the next 5 hours or so I was talking a lot more than I usually do.

Overall I liked the fact that it helped me talk and open up with people, but at the same time I wish it didn't make me so damn drowsy.
