Opening Your Mind First Hallucinogen

I'll also add that I am on Paxil, for anxiety and what not.

I took the one 15mg capsule at around 11:50pm orally. I heard the wait was in between 45min-2hours and I was fine with waiting. I was spending the night at a friends house so he could spot me in case I got out of hand.

T-1 hour:
Anxiety kicks in a little, I start to get frustrated because I can't feel any effects yet

T-2 hours:
I start to feel a little strange, almost like I feel when I start smoking weed, after the first hit or so. I am also a little edgey I don't want to sit still.

The drug is definitely starting to kick in. I see tracers when I move my hand, but they're really faint. I put on my headphones and turn on some trance music awaiting the arrival of my trip.

A poster on the wall starts to seem 3D as if different parts of it were different layers floating on top of each other. I feel really happy and my stomach feels a little queasy, but nothing I couldn't handle.

The drug is in full effect it seems. Everything is breathing and I can see different patterns emerging from the walls and sheets. My hands seem to diminish when I look at them, as if they are getting really old. Time perception is really off now, I can't tell minutes from hours and hours from minutes.
I can't tell minutes from hours and hours from minutes.

I decide to look in the mirror, my face grows and shrinks, different parts of my face twist and contort as I look at them. Nothing scary though, I know I am tripping and I enjoy everything.

My friend then asks a very deeming question, 'Why did you start doing drugs in the first place?' I started smoking marijuana when I was 16 for multiple reasons. We started to discuss society and everyones different personalitys and how we all get to the same place to be happy but we all take diffent paths i.e. I do drugs and he watches anime.

The conversation is hard to keep up with, I get distracted easily with all the contortions and colors in the background, every time I look down I see the hair on my legs standing up and wiggling. I also can't remember what we are talking about and the specific questions he just asked me but I keep the conversation going just getting off task with what I am saying

I have headache, even though it really feels as if my brain is just completely exhausted. I decide to go to bed, I lay down and put my headphones back on, looking at the album cover from the band Pretty Lights, I see the clouds in the picture leave the iPod and drift into the room. I close my eyes and fall asleep.

I woke up, brain still exhausted and I feel tired. I feel tired but can't sleep anymore. I feel slightly off for about the next few hours but as the day grew on I felt more like myself.

All in all, one of the greatest experiences of my life.
