I used 30 gram of the shrooms at 23:00, and another 30 gram about an hour later -- I used them alone. It took a long time before they worked, but when they did the experience was intense until about 6:00. No hallucinations, but an astonishing expansion of consciousness.

The first effect I noticed was a feeling of vagueness. I was distracted by everything, and couldn't concentrate well on the report I was trying to write in the beginning to record my experiences. After a while, I started to draw with color pencils, and soon became so fascinated by the colors that I couldn't take my eyes of them. I started to feel slight nausea from the shrooms, so I took some motilium. Later, the malaise turnt into a warm feeling in my stomach, which spread across my heart and belly and soon my entire body. I felt an overwhelming warmth inside me which was very comfortable. I came to feel happier then I ever had before, and I found I could amplify this feeling at will as I muttered 'thank you.'

My body became extremely sensitive - it was as if I was experiencing the boundaries of my body for the first time. Aside from the incredibly warm feeling in my torso, my face and hands became particularly sensitive. Everything around me seemed far more defined visually, though this is an effect I can remember the least. I really enjoyed the astronomical pictures I had in my iPhoto library. The colors were wonderful, and I started to become aware of how the stars were moving slightly. I chatted with a friend who'd used shrooms earlier for a while, and found I could tell him anything at all without feeling uncertain about how he'd react, as if he already knew. I later spoke with my best friend, and just before she signed off I told her how much I held her dear. Music became an ecstasy. I played one song after the other, and each filled me with happiness. A peak experience was when I read an old e-mail of a good friend, in which she said she elaborately said how she happy she felt lately. (Yes, I could concentrate enough to read, but not very well.)

I later went out, and had no problem to hide to the few passersby there were at that hour that I wasn't sober. I got nervous when I was passed by a police car a few times, but of course they couldn't see either. I was walking, or, at some point, running, at an amazing speed, however. Despite the time dilation, I found I got much farther than I'd normally have in a very short time. (Later, in another trip, when I used them with others, I walked so fast they couldn't catch up.) I didn't feel even slightly uncomfortable in my body as I normally did when I was running - in fact, I felt as if I were floating. Everything seemed larger, and closer. At some point, when I was watching the stars, it felt almost as if they were christmas ornaments, and I could easily catch them if I flew high enough. Everything felt so close that it felt as if I were walking around in myself. Later, when I got back and looked in the mirror, the edges of my face seemed to be melting. That's as far as the hallucinations went.

The most amazing thing, however, is what happened to me afterwards. The next few weeks I still felt euphoric. I enjoyed everything in life as I would in my trip, basking in the aftereffects of the psilocybe.
