Background:
I started off with one Dramamine and 8 seeds. Took the pill and then chewed and swallowed the seeds separately. I'm a generally happy person, most of the trip I was in my own home, it was a sunny day and I was wearing comfortable clothes. I've taken LSD before in large doses and always had a good trip. I took LSA before but I fell asleep and then woke up full-on-tripping and it wasn't good, but not bad either. The friend I took it with can be pretty unstable, and has never done drugs outside of weed before. I was pretty concerned for her but she did great.

Setting:
It was a sunny day in LA, so me and my friend (who took 6) decided to wander to a grassy area away from my place and lie down.

Time1 hour - She was vomiting a tiny bit, but she was okay. I was fine. I decided to order Thai food, so I called in the order and we started walking back to my place.

2 hours - I vomited a bit off my balcony. Friend was violently vomiting. We both took an aspirin to help with breathing. I had an IUD inserted into my uterus a couple weeks before and I was very scared it would come out from the vascular constriction.

3 hours later - friend calmed down and we were both laying on couches. She started talking about her feelings. She had a lot of revelations. I was feeling pretty happy but every time a song came on or I closed my eyes I started tripping, and it was uncomfortable. I took another aspirin.

4 hours later - My friend has the brilliant idea of smoking a bowl. I normally do not like marijuana, as it makes me paranoid and and depressed. However this time, it made the whole world extra-colorful. For about a minute the trip was reminicent of LSD. After that, I was falling into songs or my own mind. It was almost exactly like LSD except for the visuals. But time-lapsing, feeling muscles contract extra extra slow, having songs turn into places inside my mind - all of this was happening. At one point, I wondered if all the LSD I took had actually been LSA, but then I realized that I didn't have any nausea with LSD.

6 hours later - My friend was coming down and her eyes got back to normal. Mine were still like saucers. The guy I am dating came over to see how I was and he brought candy. I was not tripping but I was still high. I was hearing things everywhere. I was afraid I broke my brain for a little bit. I could make myself hear things that weren't there. But the sounds eventually went away.

9 hours later - I also came down from it, probably as I was falling asleep. I don't remember any dreams. Before I fell asleep I told the guy I'm dating that I loved him (for the first time, but I dont think he heard/understood) I felt happy and wonderful.

Next day - Very afterglowy. Everything is beautiful, but not visually. Things existing just seemed to make me happy. My friend said she was a bit depressed after, but realized she's had a problem with depression for a long time and decided to seek therapy. She said she would do it again and it was a good experience.

In conclusion: I would do it again. Yes, it's different from LSD but at the same level for me. The nausea is unfortunate but once I got past it, it was wonderful. I was surprised at the similarity. Based on the other experiences, I did not expect it to be so similar. Similar to LSD, I went to several 'dark' places but I was okay with it and always found a way out. I had no real intentions going in, but I guess I did conquer my fear of saying I love you, and I realized how important it is to say it even if relationships come and go. I felt honest with myself in a way I had not felt in a long time. It's almost like I came back to myself. I let the fear go.
