DOSE:
10 mg   Pharms - Zolpidem

BODY WEIGHT: 150 lb


I'm 19 years old but it was about a year ago that I first experimented with this fantastic substance. It was prescribed to me for sleeping trouble, as its normal purpose. At first, I planned not to abuse it, so I popped one soon before going to bed. As I lay there, I see my roommate's clothes hanging, and they start to swing as if a gentle breeze was pushing on them. It didn't seem too odd, until I put together that there was no way air was moving with that much force on the 5th floor (all windows sealed) with the AC off. I kept looking at it, and slowly other objects started moving subtly in a hypnotic fashion. I became tired from laying still (not the drug per se) and as I closed my eyes, vibrant images danced in front of me. But oh no, it didn't end there. Before I knew it, I began to sink into my bed, deeper and deeper with each breath. In time it begin to feel as if my bed was tilting softly in ever which angle. It was very relaxing, and that's all I remember of that experience.

Now, a year later, I'm prescribed to Zolpidem again. I can understand how people can think it's addictive. After running out, I wanted more so bad, but it was all psychological and isn't hard to stop thinking about it. Once I'm out, I'm out and that's just fine with me.

Anyway, I want to share a specific experience of mine with this drug that happened only a few nights ago. I was sitting in my chair at my desk in front of my computer and had just SNORTED (best way imo) 10mg of the substance. Burned like shit, but by now the feeling is quite pleasurable b/c of what I know I'm going to get out of it. After time the effects were fully apparent. I had my right leg propped up atop my left knee, in a standard male-cross-legs fashion, and my right knee was exerting pressure onto my desk. The only light was coming from my computer screen, as my roommate was sleeping and I'm polite not to wake him. I leaned forward a little, and my knee almost pushed my ENTIRE DESK OVER. Not really, I had just hallucinated. This was cool, so I placed both feet to the floor and used my hands to put pressure onto the side of my desk. It was like I was bending my entire desk. I played with this for a while then stopped myself to go find other fun stuff.

The Zol trip is seriously hard to explain, because I get confused in the euphoria. I see it as a great social drug and a bad motor-skills drug(dont drive). It has very pleasing effects. It's my favorite drug. Ever. Fucking ever.
