This drug left me scarred and I would consider it one of the most intense drugs a person could do. In my opinion it even surpassed dmt in terms of being intense. It did more harm than good and came with several permanent problems.

I was no beginner in terms of doing psychedelics I had already done a few hits of acid, morning glory, shrooms, nutmeg, dxm and was a frequent cannabis smoker as well so I had my share times and experiences before I tried 2cp.

I first heard about it from some of my friends who were calling it peyote and when I inquired about it they said it was supposed to be just like peyote on terms of how spiritual the drug could be. My friend corey had tried the drug and said that it was just too much, he ended up putting too much into his water and tripped for 5 days straight. I thought that he only had the experience he had because he used too much but I still wanted to try it. So after school one weekend I went to his house smoked a little bit of cannabis and chatted. When he pulled out the 2cp it was in a capsule and looked like a white powder. I bought the capsule for 10 dollars. Which I later learned that it had contained about 50 dollars of 2cp.

Onset-I had been anxious to try it and I wanted to trip in the most comfortable environment I could, so I left about 9:30pm and came home, I ate then waited. After waiting for a bit I decide to take my dose so I took about a third of my capsule poured it in my water and when I saw that it had been thoroughly mixed I drank it. It was only slightly bitter and I could barely tell anything was there.

A couple of hours later I finally started to feel it kick in. My body was feeling pretty weird and crazy. Touching stuff was interesting but I didnít bother to explore and observe too much because I was only interested in listening to music/being on the computer at the time.

After an hour passed my heart rate had increased drastically, my ears were constantly filled with ringing, and I started to become very uncomfortable. I felt like my brain was going a million miles a minute.

Plateau-I noticed the visuals had set in and looked around they seemed just like acid but there was some swirling and discoloration in the environment. The light on my wall seemed like it was constantly dimming out and getting brighter. At this point my body was severely uncomfortable and felt extremely heavy. I tried walking around my room thinking it would help elevate some of the tension and uncomfortableness but walking was extremely hard I barely had and coordination or balance. My body would constantly shift and spasm while I was walking. After pacing around for a few minutes I gave up and sat down because the pacing didnít seem to help at all.

About an hour later what seemed like a year the noises had gotten out of control the music I listened to early was still playing in my head. I heard whispers, groans, and many voices and sounds that I canít even explain. My walls were breathing and swirling, many objects were growing and shrinking including the room itself. I started to feel out of body so I climbed on my bed and sat there. I heard deep scary ominous noises and I began to have the worst visuals you could imagine. Monsters, scary faces, horrific sights, all of them, it seems like I would look at something and the 2cp would turn it into a nightmare. The few wires strewn across my floor had multiplied and had taken over my room. At that point I was pretty freaked out. It seemed like my visuals would go down and then a few minutes later I would feel the same way agin and have another episode but it would be even worse and scare me even more. I had ended up screaming and running out of my room a few times. This was an ongoing cycle which seemed felt like years, during this trip I wanted to kill myself several times but pressed on and I tripped till about 6:00 the next day.

After effects- After doing the 2cp my life changed drastically. I was lucky I came back sane. I still have visuals and they have yet to go away even though itís been a couple of months. After doing some research I learned that I have HPPD (Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder). I always tend to see trails, spots, shapes, and hallucinate in my peripheral vision. My motor skills were permanently impaired so I tend to stutter a lot now.

My overall Conclusion- This is a designer drug that I will never be using again and wish I had not. It left me shattered and changed my life drastically. It was a mistake to use this drug.
