4 hits oral LSD (blotter / tab)


I had recently bought four hits of LSD blotter when I was informed by someone who had done this particular batch before that it was really weak stuff, and you'd have to eat a lot to get really high. I didn't pay too much for the blotter, so I really didn't care. I decided that I'd trust what the girl had said, and I'd take all 4 blotters at once.

Well Friday rolled around, and I had just spent some time goofing around with some friends and I was feeling pretty good. I was planning on doing the stuff Saturday but I was pretty happy now, and I had nothing important to do later, so I decided to do it then.

I dropped the stuff at about 6PM, I held it under my tongue for a few minutes then I swallowed it. It left a strange 'fresh' feeling in my mouth. I didn't really start to feel anything until about 7PM. It started with a feeling that things were somehow different, and I started to feel slight sensations of joy running through my body. Soon after that things started to take on a dream like state. I don't know how you dream, but it was like dreams that I have. They're in color and everything sounds and looks a little bit hazy and '60's color t.v-ish'. I felt like I was somehow external of my own self. It was like I was inside myself but I was experiencing things in third person. A strange but interesting feeling indeed.

I was riding in a car for part of the time when I was high, and this was great. Whenever the car turned or bumped I would go into a pleasurable feeling that would encapsulate part of my body. It was kinda like the body feelings I get when I take LSA (Morning Glory extract) except to a much lesser extent.

These effects started to die down at about 10PM, but I still had an off baseline feeling for the rest of the night. I tried to go to sleep around 11PM, but found it very hard. I eventually drifted off into sleep, but it was very restless. I woke up around 5 or 6 times that night. I finally went into a deep peaceful sleep at around 3AM.

I woke up the next morning feeling refreshed and alive, as I usually do after taking a hallucinogen. Given this was my first time with LSD it was a good experience, but it didn't have all the funky visuals and feelings I expected it to, so I was somewhat disappointed. I attribute this to the weakness of the blotter. I would repeat this again, but with better quality LSD.
