So coming back to college from Minnesota, I had a few new goodies with me that usual. I went to the doctor while home and she prescribed be 30 10mg ambien for my recent insomnia following me quitting all my drugs. She didn't want to give them to me, but I insisted because I was a drug addict.

What happened these two days almost ruined my college life, and it ruined my buddies.

Tuesday night, another boring night, me and a buddy K were chillin but there was nothing to do. I decided I would take an early night and take two ambien's because I heard you trip. Well obviously he was curious and asked to try it with me. So we each took two pills and our horrible experience began.

We don't remember any of this, it's all secondhand accounts.

T: 30 minutes. We were chillin in the dorm hallway spacing out until we started to see things. If you stare into a poster or at some picture, it seemed to be 3-D and moving all over. K was more interested in this than me, I wanted to trip not visualize stuff moving. I took two more ambien, and K took 3.

I don't remember times, but what happened that night was we were so fucked up we couldn't even walk. We somehow got outside the dorms to smoke some bud, but K took way too much with him. He had 12 baggies with an 1/8 in each one of bud in a planters jar in plain view of the CA'S (moderators). They questioned us, and K eventually gave up. The cops came and obtained K and took me into a room and questioned me. I obviously lied to them and told them I knew nothing.

Apparently the report says I passed out twice during the investigation and once falling to the floor. The cops were trying to take me to the hospital but I said I was good. They tried to take advantage of my state by pressuring me to tell them stuff and let them search my room. I told them 'get a warrant' and you should of seen their faces. They did not expect a stoned, tripping, blacked out white college kid to shove that one in their faces.

I got to go away free but my friend was charged with possession and intent to supply. I got lucky that night, but the next one was just as terrible.

Next night I took 3 pills after drinking 2 beers, boy that was a mistake. Seriously, to all who read this report, don't drink with ambien. Apparently my friends tried to get me to my room for over an hour but I kept arguing and fighting. I kept talking about going to the mountains and apparently was facsinated about if darth vader had eyelashes or not. I probably had a really stupid argument, i wish i remembered. Finally my friends got me to bed, but the stupid CA on my floor thought I was dying and called the cops.

Cops come, search my room, take everything, take me to the hospital. After I blow a 0.0 and tell them I wasn't drinking, they took me to the psych ward. I stayed 30 hours there and honestly never want to set foot in a hospital again.

If you think your prescription of ambien is gonna be fun and can't wait to trip on it, think again. Most reports I've read have people driving into their house's or trees. This stuff is purely for sleep and while it makes you trip, is not safe one bit. I learned my lesson the hard way.
