Well I used to take DXM but only for the 1st plateau sensation since I like to be more active, dance, etc. Reading up on the dosages/dangers/plateaus I decided to go one beyond and slowly prepare myself for the later plateaus. Well I bought 3 bottles of Vicks44 since they had no Robo Xtra Str. I did about 2 1/2 bottles before I just couldn't stomach anymore syrup.
So I then went into my bedroom and relaxed while I waited for it to take affect. I wanted to be alone and somewhere familiar so I stayed home. I always like to get my favorite music, close my eyes and experience it from there. Well I listened to some Trance music, some older Cd's (Northern Expo 2, and Harddeserttrance 2) that I still appreciate to this day. As soon as I started Expo 2 (disc 1), I was already heavily feeling the euphoria that I've felt with 1st plateau and just started dancing.
But quickly thereafter I noticed I wanted to sit down and close my eyes If you're familiar with the CD you'll know what I mean :) From there I clearly felt the second plataeu. I noticed the music dictated where I was and where I was going. I felt I was traveling at high speeds when the music would speed up, rising higher. I noticed I felt as though I were in many different 'rooms'. I began to, from what I understand, talk to my soul but very briefly about my upcoming divorce and my life thereafter. I noticed for only brief moment I lost sense of this reality (I would clearly think about my responsibilities, things I had to do etc) and only gazed upon what other realities await me. I'd say the peak lasted the whole first CD then halfway thru the second (2 hours) where I began to regain a constant hold on my reality. In between the CD's I got up and walked around my house for a bit and felt 'wobbly' and couldn't dictate my sense depth as the stairs became a chore to go down :)
The experience has opened my eyes at what DXM can do, if only for what I saw was so limited as to what the Third/Fourth Plateaus behold. I will try around 600mg next time to understand the Second Plataeu more before reaching the later stages.
