I would like to talk and share my experience of using sleeping pills to get high. Vulbegal and Hipnosedon are very strong pharmaceutical drugs used to cure anxiety, insomnia and people with psycological problems. Also used as a substitute of heroin. In my country (Greece) are very common and cheap drugs mostly used by junkies. I started to use (abuse) these pills after stopping using heroin. My doctor commented that as a substitute.

Taking a little dose (1-2 pills) of it makes me calm, relaxed and ready to go to bed. However taking a higher dose, these pills can make me real wasted. In combination with weed and heroin its the 'heaviest' stone I have ever lived (excuse me for my english).

Taking more than 3 pills at the same time, in the beginning this drugs works like an exctasy. It makes me strong and full of energy willing to do extreme and violent things (it is not by chance that is used by hooligans). Actually I dont know what I am doing, I have no consciousness of myself at all. After this first 'wave' the drug brings me down, real down.

It has happened I dont remember what I have done for 48hours, or to wake up somewhere unable to explain how I got there.

Another thing when I am high on these substances, is that you believe that you are normal but another person who looks at you can understand how wasted you are. It happened to me to sleep in a standing position or try to wear two shoes on the same foot!! In front of the eyes of my innocent friend.

Another very common side-effect is the willingness to steal things. When I am high I can steal anything, from lighters and mobile phones to cars. I dont know why but it makes you a maniac thief. I dont know any else drug makes you behave this way. I have talk with many people about this and everyone agree that is the most certain thing.
I began using Vullbegal as a substitute of heroin. But very soon I got addicted to this. Started to take 2 pills per day, as my psychiatrist recomended. I ended to take 10-20 pills every day and be completely lost. In period of 6 months, I must took over 2000 pills. For real. Using it ever day it makes me brain dead and I am feeling like a zombie. I am in a 'sleep state' totally useless.

I have stop to use sleeping pills to get high and I can now understand how stupid I was and how disastrous was this thing to me.
