I have been smoking pot on and off for about a year. I have been anywhere from slightly buzzed to pretty stoned. However, about a week ago, I got more stoned than ever in my life.
The evening began with drinking with friends. I had about five beers or so and was somewhat intoxicated and decided to smoke pot. I never before smoked much pot while being drunk, so I thought I'd try it out.
After three full bong hits (which usually just gets me mellow), I immediately felt the marijuana come on. It seemed like my typical feeling except that it began almost immediately. However, after about ten or fifteen minutes I 'forgot' where I was and quickly remembered. My short term memory was so shot that it seemed as though I were constantly waking up from being asleep--reorienting myself, reminding myself where I was. I started feeling anxious and restless and so decided to leave my friends and listen to music in my room. When I closed my eyes, I could literally see the patterns in the music and I felt them very intensely. I became so excited and had an intense desire to be with others, so I returned to the room where my friends were. As I stood up, it seemed as though my feet were miles below me. When I stretched out my arms, they seemed much longer than usual. When I moved my hands in my peripheral vision they looked very different than usual, which seemed very amusing to me.
I came back to be with my friends. When I got there I began to see everything differently. I was not hallucinating per se, seeing things that weren't there--everything looked the same, but just seemed very different. I felt as if reality were a movie I was watching from far away. Everything real seemed like a joke and not real. It felt like where I was was real and that reality was something I was watching, because everything was disjointed and unconnected. Causes and effects were divorced: everything was just actions in an ever changing present. Though it was disorienting, it was rather pleasant and everything seemed humorous. I felt no inhibitions and said anything that came to mind. I would spontaneously start laughing at anything. Everything seemed more interesting and heightened. Foods tasted better, music sounded better, because everything was an immediate rush of sensations.
My friends left and I sat alone. My arms began hurting and I thought that the veins in my arms were exploding. I knew that this was just paranoia from the cannabis and it stopped bothering me.
In retrospect, I think it must have been the alcohol that intensified the pot experience. The experience was one of my most profound and dramatic, lasting several hours. I went to bed at +4:00. In the morning I was back on Earth but only 99%. I still had residual effects throughout the day.
