Well, I am not sure where to start, so I'll start with my childhood days of experimenting with substances at wild late night parties. It was during one such occasion a friend introduced me to LSD and gave me a tab, which we both agreed we would wait to take together. He called me later that night and said he had already taken his as he couldn't go out so he'd decided to take his on his own at home, then he prompted me to take mine and said 'may as well as it will just go off if you leave it sitting in the cupboard!'
So not sure of what to expect I decided to do so and soon after he called me just when I started to experience its effects to inform me he hadn't actually taken his, he just wanted me to find out what it was like (nice friend, with friends like that who needs enemies?). Anyway it was a wonderful experience, I sat in my room staring at the walls for most of the night as they where shimmering and moving and I had an uncontrollable urge to giggle at nothing in particular, this was followed by tracers and a lot of visuals.
Anyway it wore off after a full 12 hours and I pretty returned to normality. Carried on with my normal everyday life, I would have to say I found the experience to be both enlightening and very stimulating.
Anyway, years later, after being to more than one such party in my youth and having tried a variety of substances, I decided whilst living away down in the countryside to go out on a mushroom hunt for some Psilocybin. I found a huge field with loads of cows grazing and found a few mushrooms growing right out of a cow pat!
These I took home, washed and dried, then a friend I had met and gotten to know told me he had managed to get hold of some Acid and some Ibogaine paste, he asked me if I wanted any to which I replied that I would indeed like to get hold of some of each. A few days later and I was in possession of all three, Ibogaine, LSD and Shrooms.
This is where it started to get very funky, I first took a few wraps of the Ibogaine paste wrapped in a cigarette paper, then I followed that up with some dried and crushed shrooms in a bowl and then followed that up with 3 tabs of Acid!
The experience itself was terrifying, I saw bright rainbow colors to begin with, followed by a huge urge to sleep (on LSD hard to believe but true!), I fell asleep at around 6:30 in the afternoon thinking my heart was going to explode out of my chest with my thoughts becoming very incoherent to awake sharply at around 10:30 at night. What I saw was something like vine leaves crawling from the walls of the place I was staying, followed by the sight of lights in the sky. I saw something that looked like a huge hooded figure of a man wrestling with a tree outside my bedroom window, this was followed up by a shimmering kind of plant invading the bedroom I was living in which then proceeded to shimmer up and down my arms and YES I could feel this happening as though it was actually real and not a hallucination! I remained awake for most of the night, next day I saw something like a giant worm slithering past the window, whilst smoking another bowl of shrooms. I hadn't slept in almost two days and my mind was bordering on severe psychosis. I eventually abandoned my habitat and returned home to my mother's across 50 miles of land to get there, whilst gibbering about aliens from another world. In the end I even started to hear voices and had to physically force myself to go to sleep and ignore the visuals and the voices in my head which kept re-appearing in the dark, when I turned out the lights!
When I awoke I was convinced it was some kind of huge cosmic joke and that the whole universe was in on it having a huge laugh at my expense. It took two days of sleep to recover from the experience and for me to come to my senses and realize it had all been a very bad trip brought on by taking all three substances at the same time.
I will never do something so stupid ever again, but I will certainly have a much wider view on substance abuse because of the experience itself
