After tripping on DOC the day before, Rob and I still had small effects trickling down. There was a big apartment party happening that night where there would be a buffet of Class A’s, alcohol and women. I had 2 of the small 5x5mm tabs left. I wanted them both to myself to try a stronger experience for the night to get some actual visuals from DOC instead of the usual mild twists, but being the only one tripping feels isolated and it would be selfish. In the end I gave my second tab to a girl, Chloe, who had never experienced anything more than marijuana. I called up my dealer to get 4 more tabs so we could both have one more each and I’d save the last two. We took the first tab at around 2PM.
We wandered with the others for a couple hours before feeling the effects. They seemed quite weak to me. It may be because I had already had a tab the day before. We enjoyed the weather, visited rivers and went to many wildlife areas before picking up another 4 tabs. We took these the moment we got them, at 6PM.
The effects of these tabs were noticeable within 20 minutes. Doubling the dosage gives triple the experience. DOC goes through phases of sobriety and then phases of massive pleasure (‘rushes’ or ‘waves’) and then phases of hallucinogenic happiness. The ‘waves’ would almost make me tear up, I would be in unbelievable euphoria, unable to focus on what was going on around me, only thinking to myself how happy I am to be where I am, who I’m with and what’s going on. I was completely focused on my happiness.
Hallucinations were noticeably improved. The usual small twists on surfaces were not small anymore, and not focused on individual surfaces, instead they were everywhere. I was in the toilet waiting for my friend to finish getting changed, staring into a full-figure mirror. At the time I had dressed for drugs, and was wearing a psychedelic twisted patterned shirt under my jacket. I looked at myself and noticed my shirt writhing and twisting under my jacket. It was amazing. It was obviously only a hallucination, but it was amazing and for the rest of the night if I wanted entertainment I would just look down at my shirt sleeves.
After a few more hours of strolling through the city we headed out to the party to get into it. We decided its best to arrive late when it’s already in full swing instead of being one of the first there during the awkward period of time where people have quiet conversation above quiet music. We get there after a small walk at around 9PM. The party was in swing, and I’d bought a loaf of bread in the hope there was a toaster. There was a toaster, but unfortunately it was hanging from the light bulb so no luck there.
The night went on and I had various experiences. To name a few:
The carpet wobbled and shook and I had to get off it, so I sprinted toward the door to get out and I swung it open and hit a girl in the face with it. Luckily she was too far gone on MDMA to notice.
The walls began to get covered in cobwebs. They spread all over the place.
Outside the apartment all the walls seemed to be engraved with writing (like Unitologist’s writing in Dead Space) so I came to the conclusion that the writing was the Devil’s work.
Light changes were interesting, so we used loads of kitchen appliances to make some sort of pendulum on the light bulb in the bedroom so it was constantly moving and changing the light levels in the room.
I found a spray and sprayed it on my hand not realising it was a corrosive until I checked the bottle. Whoever brought a corrosive grease cleaning liquid to the party was a wanker.
A map later in the evening started breaking apart into each country and arranging itself on the wall.
During the night I met loads of people and it was great. I spent time watching my own shadows, intrigued at the strength of the bass on the speakers, loving music. After the effects of Bromo-Dragonfly (I recommend no-one ever takes this) taken a month before this, my heart has never been the same and I have a lower blood pressure, and it has difficulty catching up with my movement so I get extremely dizzy every time I stand up. My friend Oli went into a wardrobe and closed the doors. I followed him to the doors, but after standing up I found myself completely dazed by colours and unable to think at all. You know the rush you get when you stand up? Because of my bad heart I had got that very strongly. I wasn’t on a ‘rush’, but the mix of DOC and head-rush from standing up made me into a stumbling, no longer autonomous pleasure animal. I was stuck in a state of happiness that I don’t ever believe I will ever reach again in my life, whether it means winning the lottery while on cocaine at the point of orgasm inside Keira Knightly. I was crying and laughing, and the walls were swirling and twisting. The whole room was going upside down, yet we were all defying gravity. The cream coloured walls were turning into a multitude of different colours that made me feel like I was the spectrum personified. By the time I had come out of this state that felt like 10 minutes of pure beauty and pleasure I realised I was leant up against the doors and Oli couldn’t get out from the wardrobe.
The night ran smoothly and beautifully. It was extremely enjoyable, even when being threatened by a chav I stayed in complete euphoria and watched his face twist in funny ways. I slept in a bed with other people so I didn’t feel isolated and have a short bad trip before sleeping.
