Lets start from the beginning- I never used other drugs except extasy (ones). I tried carefully datura seeds some years ago but I think it was too small portion-I just was feeling drunk and sleepy. But this time I did everything properly.

I made tea from one flower and some small leaves and took it on empty stomach. It kicks me almost immediately. I could not move and could not open my eyes. Under eye lids I saw many amazing colors changing and moving. Than from other room came my boyfriend (he was my baby sitter). He asked if I started to trip and I discovered that I could not say more then one-two words. It was so funny that I started to laugh and just could not stop. It was strange because I read a lot of rapports about bad and horrible trips, so I was prepared to see something scary. Also I want to say that even reading a lot about spooky things that described others I never was worried about it. My purpose was different from others I think-I just wanted Datura help me to open my mind.

So it starts at 12 midday. I was relaxed and happy, smiling and laughing. I remember my boyfriend gave me a bottle of water and I could not hold it, it was so heavy and it was funny too. I wanted to speak but after 2 words I forgot completely what I wanted to say. In one point my boyfriend asked me how I feel. I was perfectly well! He asked if I remember everything. Of course I remember!!!!!! But I found out gap in my memory for almost 6 hours!I did not remember anything from the tale my boyfriend told to me. First-I throw up. Second- I could not stand on my legs but still was walking (trying at least). My friend became my shadow and was following me everywhere so I donít harm myself. I was bumping on the walls and chairs. Also I was looking for something everywhere, was taking objects from one place and put them somewhere else. So I woke up at 6 very disappointed. I wanted to have this experience but remembered nothing.
I wanted to have this experience but remembered nothing.
And in one week I decided to consume roots.

Like before I make a tea, just instead of leaves I used roots. The taste was awful! Even worse then taste of leaves. The roots was dried and about 10 sm. We just came back from the dinner so my stomach wasnt empty like first time. The time was 4 at noon. It took about 15 min to start to feel something. I was all smiles again! The vision became blurry like and first time. This time I remembered almost everything. Few times I spilled the water from the bottle we drink of, I again was walking around our apartment moving things. And later memory came back to me in pieces. Ones I was in bedroom and heard somebody came in living room. I saw there a man sitting on the couch and I decided that was friend of my boyfriend but later he told me that nobody came in. More or less I woke up at 3 at night. My friend was already sleeping. But somehow I decided that it was 3 in afternoon and few times was trying to wake him up. Then confused I was staring in window and could not understand where is the sun, why at 3 o clock is so dark outside.

I was sitting in my chair and saw an old woman was sitting opposite me and watching me. I did not want to watch her directly, but she did not lose me from her sight so I came closer and asked what she is doing here. She did not answer. In a moment I saw old men near to her, they was couple. Then on the couch appeared a woman with a daughter, then they vanished. By that time I was really tired. I went to bed but before fall asleep two times I heard somebody was flushing water in toilet. Next 3 days I still had blurry vision.
Next 3 days I still had blurry vision.


Nothing was spooky or frightening, I felt good. A little bit disappointed but good. Next time I will try seeds. I really think that the things that I see depends on my point of view the way I see the world and what I want from the world.
