A few weeks ago my roommate Z and I got a few hits of AMT from our friend W. Both of them tried it not to long ago, but because of time constraints and the long lasting nature I had read about AMT, I just took some foxy (5-MeO-DIPT). Based on what I observed during their ride and what they later told me, I was very curious to try it. Well, I got my chance yesterday. I got extremely drunk the night before and slept in until 2:30 pm. I woke up feeling well rested and very energized. By 6:00 pm I had grown very bored, as most of my friends and my roommate are out of town for a while, and decided to take a hit of AMT that W had left for me the last time he visited. I was a little nervous, being alone and not having any cannabis to smoke, but being a strong-minded, psychedelic connoisseur I was confident I would be fine. The following is an exact copy of what I wrote during my ride on the Rolls Royce of psychedelics.
6:00 pm - bored, nothing to do, decide to eat a 40mg gelcap of AMT
6:30 pm - start feeling a bit different, could be that I was listening to Tool very loudly all day and just put some more mellow music on the playlist
7:00 pm - hands are kinda sweaty, is it the drug or just nervousness? Music sounds good, mind feels a little disassociated, time seems to have slowed to a crawl. Feel light nausea and starting to see some mild movement on the walls
7:30 pm - Go outside on my large deck, the sun hasn't yet set, but is blocked well by the trees. So many beautiful shades of green, makes me wish I had some pot
8:30 pm - after a few tries I decide I can't draw trees. Too difficult, too many branches. I feel very creative, too bad trees are too hard 2 draw. (at this point I switched from drawing to writing poetry)
8:30 pm - slight muscle tremors and definite jaw clenching. Vision very fuzzy. I really have to focus on focusing.
8:50 pm - darkness slowly settles, the late afternoon radiance is nothing more than a memory, how different things seem, fireflies sparkle like stars against the green sky of grass and crickets chirp along with the music playing in my head.
9:00 pm - feeling very good, a little sped up, a little trippy, this is a lot of fun. A good drug to just be alone in your own thoughts. I'm not sure how well I could communicate with anyone right now, but my mind seems to be functioning clearly.
9:20 pm - how quickly things can change. Got scared for some reason and went inside. Took a shower that felt incredible. Body goes from warm to cold and back in seconds
9:30 pm - talking on the phone isn't to hard when it's with someone I know
9:45 pm - computer gets boring very fast, decide to pull out the trump and go in the trip-friendly basement (blacklights, posters, glow in the dark stars)
10:15 pm - very glad I decided to come downstairs. Very strong visuals. If I try to focus on something it dances around where it is supposed to be and centers itself periodically
10:50 pm - visuals now on the downswing, went upstairs to turn music up, still feel quite trippy
11:10 pm - feel kinda sleepy
11:50 pm - still a little fucked up, very hard to focus on things
1:15 pm - almost baseline, mind and body exhausted, had an enjoyable ride
Conc. - I had a very good time, despite being alone and sans cannabis. I constantly felt like I should be doing something, drawing, writing, walking around. I was somewhat disappointed in the brevity of the experience. Although I knew the 15+ hrs was not going to happen at this dose, I was expecting 9 or 10 hrs based on Z and W's experience. Perhaps the large amount of cannabis they smoked was the difference. I think I will try a larger dose next time.
