Background:
I was always IN LOVE with benzodiazepines. Having suffered from panic disorder, phobias, and a generalized anxiety disorder all of my life... The relief that they offered was pure blissful heaven. I always described it as floating on a cloud without a worry in the world, pure clean and utter euphoria coupled with a feeling of being able to do anything; and nice sedation.

NOTE: I also take 100mg of Zoloft every day.
The Experience:
Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg
Insufflated

-Crushed and cut up into two lines
-Snorted each right after the other
-Used my nasal saline-water spray into my nose to ensure MAXIMUM absorbancy

0:00- Burned for a few minutes and made me tear...overall not too terrible, and no bad drip.

+5 Minutes- I feel my eye lids getting heavy and droopy, and slight sedation

+10 Minutes- Full effects suddenly hit. This is where my memory gets fuzzy. I remember stumbling around with my limbs (knees especially) feeling extremely heavy, as if they had bricks hanging off of them. Short term memory sort of affected like a cannabis experience (what did I just do a second ago?). Next I lied down in bed and proceeded to talk to people on my computer.

+15- Effects just got stronger. I start having extremely cool visuals. First off, the columns of music on itunes were 3D and 'rotating' if u can imagine that. Next, all of the images on TV began to pop out and touch me. I then began to become very delirious and had EXTREME difficulty typing and processing thoughts. The keys on my laptop looked like glowing skyscrapers. And while my hands were typing, each hand looked like a freakin dinosaur. My two 'dinosaur' like hands were battling out on the keyboard fighting for who will strike the next letter key. This was VERY entertaining.

NOTE: I did not feel any fear or anxiety during this experience

+20- What do you know... They got even stronger. I began to see small elf like people walking around on my laptop creating a little 'society'. My carpet then began to vibrate, rumble, shake, and then finally start to hover/levitate. At this point I was so delirious I thought I had lost it. But I was also very excited about everything considering this was my VERY FIRST time hallucinating in my life. I walked into the bathroom stumbling all over the place and did the one thing your NEVER supposed to do on a trip... I looked at myself in the mirror. This was by far the coolest/scariest thing I've ever seen. My face began to warp into a dark devil demon like face. And my eyes turned un-circular and warped and demon like. My bags under my eyes became very exaggerated and I saw intense crows feet. I looked like a dried up old guy who was possessed by the devil.

+25- After experiencing this I popped 0.5mg of alprazolam to put an end to the hallucinations. After about 10 minutes I began to find the hallucinations and delirium ending. Now I just had an extremely strong sedation effect. I put my head in my pillow and instantly fell asleep.

Overall: I had NEVER experienced such an intense experience from a) a pharmaceutical b) such a low dose. This was very cool and I plan on doing it again whenever I get ahold of some.
