Content

T=6:30; ingestion of 75mg pregabalin capsules x3

T+35min; slight lightness of body and limbs noticable. Mood lifts and become playful, possibly placebo.

T+1hr30min; strange tactile sensations can be felt; a nice warm tingling. Colours seem intensified, not brighter but as if passed through a filter. We're playing supersmash bros and giggling a lot. Slight ataxia noticed.

T+2hr; face becomes flush, pupils become somewhat slow to react; strange CEVs (like spinning lights, all out of phase). Initially I thought they were dilated but adjusted very slowly. Heart rate is slowed somewhat and I start to draw and sketch -seems like a boost in creativity. Ataxia is more pronounced. Everyone is giggling at everything. My friend becomes amazing at supersmash bros, prega has unlocked his gaming power.

T+2hr20min; Strong anxiolysis. sharing some cannabis in joints adds a nice layer to the experience. Vision is bright and glossy; not any hallucination but some sort of other visual alteration. Some distortion in peripheral vision; objects/shapes. Slurring of speech noticed.

T+2hr35min; Everyone becomes ravenously hungry. We stop playing and devour all food in the kitchen; crisps, biscuits, fruit, yoghurts, bread. End up making a batch of around 40 chocolate and nut cookies. Then make curry, eat it and invite all our mates over.

T+4hr40min; Strong ataxia, feeling 'wavy' and feelings of floating are noticed. mates start to arrive and all notice we're acting weird and obviously intoxicated. every now and again i burst into almost uncontrollable laughter. And those on prega discuss how we're all slightly motivated. Movement feels greatttt (similar to GHB). Very spacey headspace; I keep zoning out, dreaming of complex structures with moving components. Because of this i keep getting lost in my thoughts and the film becomes non-sensical but amazing to watch nevertheless, soud distortions notice (voices sound v. strange).

T+5hr; We all watch a film after smoking more bud. Watching a classic; blade runner. I am completely immersed in the film, so thrilled. Its so vibrant and looks amazing; also intensly emotionally immersed also. Everything is so serene, I have no worries in the world.

T+6hr; Very sedated...struggling to keep eyes open, mild nystagmus is present. Strong euphoria, similar to the 'bliss' felt on benzos and opioids. We discuss the difference between euphoria and bliss and conclude that euphoria is a stimulating ecstasy, where as bliss is a sedative ecstasy. My mind is so quiet and peaceful.

Not long after my last entry I ended up falling asleep on the sofa, then woke up and walked home as it was early morning. I semi-blacked out and my memory is a little hazy (cant remember waking up and walking home). However, the vivid and strange dreams i can remember; like a film reel before my eyes. Strange frantic characters and bright colours.

*After effects/next morning: Slight muscle ache the next day and a little groggy when i woke up; nothing a cup of coffee didn't fix. Saw my friends and laughed at hour hungry we all suddenly became. we spent around 2hours cooking solidly.

  • N.B. -As someone with visual snow (VS) many drugs alter the flow and pattern of its appearance. This calmed the pattern to a pseudo-random multi-coloured sparkle (rather than geometry) that hung around certain objects. Compared with other depressants, this is an atypical response (except the reduction in kinetic energy/speed) as the VS was enhanced and intensified.
  • Summary:

Very enjoyable, euphoric/bliss, very trippy feel to it and intense strange headspace. Uncommon effects on hunger and social interaction. Great time had by all, shame about the hazy memory.
