The day started off at 3am for me as I have a sleep disorder and my patterns are always off. I woke up feeling exhausted having 7 hours of sleep after being awake for 23 straight. I also felt somewhat depressed and emotionally sensitive (The past couple days had been like this) so I decided to smoke a joint to calm me down, and it worked. I popped 4 muscle relaxants and tripped for a good 5 hours. I had a gram of salvia 20x for later on that night, as well as a joint. My neighbor, T, had 2 tickets to the Montreal Canadiens game and invited me.

We arrived at his dads office parking lot which was about 20 minutes away from the arena and decided to smoke it on the way there. Once we arrived, we were both pretty stoned, we found our seats. The game was great.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]

Next we were heading to B's house to pick him up then go to C's house to smoke the salvia. We picked B up, smoked a joint and went to the car. We drove to C's without a problem. Once we got there we smoked another joint, I tried snowboarding (which I've never done before) down her icy stairs which didn't work out too well on any of the times I tried it.

Finally, it was time for salvia. We decided to take turns smoking it in case somebody bad tripped. B went first as he's smoked it before, (using snow in his bong as opposed to water) but said he didnt really feel it, so he went back out to smoke more, this time with T. Still no success, both were feeling a little off but after about 15 minutes neither were feeling much. I called my dealer, he said it was impossible and told me to smoke some more and call him back. This time all three of us went out to smoke it. We all took hits, I was feeling something off but nothing really at all either, so I said we should put water in the bong instead, as I felt that was the problem. We switched it up, and this time mixed the salvia with weed. Well, the problem must have been that there wasn't enough heat on the salvia, but the weed fixed that problem. We passed it around, taking huge hit after huge hit and holding it 40+ seconds. That was a mistake. Before I could tell what was happening I was tripping hard.

There was this incredible force pulling me to the ground and I couldn't fight it. It felt like no matter how I stood, I was standing on a 90 degree angle and kept falling. It was like my world went completely topsy turvy. I had an unbelieveably hard time sitting down and hurt myself in the process. Just the sound of people voices was aggrivating me, especially them talking to me or about how I was tripping (Which isn't like me, I'm a very laid back guy). I also couldn't get it through my head that this was the drug. I've always told myself whenever I had a difficult time with a drug that it was just the intoxication and it would be gone soon. Not this time. I thought it was permanent. This was nothing like any stories I've read or videos I'd seen of people on salvia. We went into her living room and I laid down on the couch and closed my eyes. I had intense visuals of lots and lots of naked chicks and pussy and whatnot, and for some reason I felt like I was gay for being aroused by this. I guess I'm a lesbian. Another thing that was pretty odd, B and T didn't really trip, they were barely buzzed at all. After a good 10 minutes I started to come down, which felt fantastic especially since I had just gotten out of a bad trip. We headed home a good hour and a half after smoking. When I got there, I smoked another half a joint and went to bed.

Overall, the peak was way too intense for me but I'm sure that had to do with taking hit after hit after hit, we smoked a gram of that stuff between the 3 of us in one night. I am looking forward to trying it again and having a positive experience, because before the peak came I felt great and after it passed I felt great, so if I can just make that peak feel great it will be pretty fucking awesome.

I wasnt in the best head space that week and I had never been to C's house before. It wasnt threatening or uncomfortable at all, but that may have had to do with the bad trip. Research and stay safe. Peace
