Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]
I'm always game to try out any fun-sounding medication that I find in a medicine cabinet. In addition, I have a pretty get knowledge of what drugs are narcotic and which are not. So, when I opened a drawer at a friend's house and found a full bottle of 0.125 mg Halcion, I knew I'd made a major find. I dumped out approximately 40 of the little oblong white tablets and slipped them into my pocket for later.
I was with my ex-girlfriend at the time, and after we drove my friend to work we were bored. I decided to do a couple of the triazolam. I started by crushing one up on a CD case on the console of her car and snorting it. This proved less than simple and I lost about 25 mcg worth of material. I then swallowed 3 more .125 mg pills. About ten minutes later, I consumed another .25 mg sublingually.
This is where my sleep deprivation came into play. I had only gotten 2 or so hours of sleep that night because we had had to wake up early to drive my friend's girlfriend home, and I had robotripped as well. So, the combination of sleep and neurotransmitter depletion, along with .725 mg of Halcion, quickly began to take it's toll on my ability to stay awake.
It's here that I start to black out. I vaguely remember leaning forward to type on the keyboard of a laptop, only to open my eyes and realize I was in the front of a car with no computer. I was convinced that there were other people in the car, and that I was communicating with them.
We finally arrived back at her house, and from what I can gather from this morning, I: took off my shirt and shoes, left them in her living room, and somehow made it downstairs to sleep for the next 18 hours. In my blackout, we'd found a pack of cigarettes and attempted to sell my rare coin collection. When I woke up at 7:24, I wasn't entirely sure whether it was AM or PM.
Triazolam is a much more hypnotic benzo than clonazepam or valium. Its effects were comparable to Ambien. Be careful when using this while driving, since falling asleep at the wheel is kinda dangerous.
