A Cure For Headaches

2 glasses oral Alcohol - Beer/Wine (liquid)
      2C-I (powder / crystals)


[Erowid Note: Two samples of powder (even of the same chemical) with equivalent volumes won't necessarily weigh the same. For this reason, eyeballing is an inaccurate and potentially dangerous method of measuring, particularly for substances that are active in very small amounts. See this article on The Importance of Measured Doses.]

Early in the night my brother's friend spoke of mushrooms, and this reminded me of the 2CI I had. I decided that I would indeed ingest some. I warmed up first by slowly drinking 2 tall boys of Steel Reserve over the course of an hour. Before I had the chance to eat the powder I was stricken by a terribly painful headache, likely a combo of dehydration and alcohol. I am not one easily deterred. I resolved that 2CI is legal for research purposes only and indeed I would research its effectiveness on headaches. I like to eyeball my drugs. I understand that some consider this lacking in safety or scientific method and negates any research, but I don't particularly care. It's very tough to guess milligrams. I dipped my knife into the bag and scooped up a liberal amount on the cutting edge. If you want to know how much 'liberal' is, I'd say 'Nancy Pelosi liberal.' A lot.

A half hour later my headache raged on with even more intensity, with no effects from the 2CI other than a bit of nausea. I decided a hot shower would do my head some good. The shower was indeed relaxing, but did nothing for the pain. I was a little anxious now, thinking that going into a heavy trip with a painful headache was probably a bad idea. Suddenly the sound of the shower changed and my normally athletic, muscular body looked starved and weak. My headache was gone without a trace. Oh shit, here it comes... 'Thank you for choosing 2CI Airlines. You are now tripping and may unfasten your seatbelt.'
I let the water run over me for a bit longer. I got out of the shower and stared at myself in the mirror from the corner of my eye for a while, maybe a half hour. That's always some good tripping fun.

Then, as many others report, I felt aroused. I browsed the porn folder on my computer and found a suitable file. As I watched the video and masturbated, I became enamored with the featured woman. She was so beautiful. I wanted to find her so that I could tell her I love her. I wanted to have children with her, and marry her. I wanted to sleep next to her every night. After a most intense orgasm, I realized that this would be near impossible as she is a famous pornstar and I am an average 23 year old proletarian. I also made the quick connection that this was an effect of the 2CI. I have sampled pretty much the whole menu of hallucinogens, this loving feeling is a first. I get similar feelings sometimes with E or MDMA, but never with the 2C family or other psychs.

I wandered around outside for a while. Tree branch capillaries mixed together in the sky to make faces staring at me. Smoke puffed from my tobacco pipe an exaggerated amount with tracers. Always nice visuals during a peak on the 2C's. Then comes morning, and the present. I type this as I am still lightly tripping, ready to work a half assed shift for minimum wage. Let's see if I can fuck everything up to the point where it actually costs more money to employ me than the profit of the work I produce.
Happy tripping, and I hope you have a better day than me.
