Scene and setting
In the quest to spice up a quiet night in; the two of us decide to take some Lyrica pills left over from a music festival (drug binge) last summer.

T+00 (~23:30)
Ingested 3 x 150mg capsules with a pint of lager after evening meal.

Had another pint.
Feeling more than just a little alcohol. A slow and steady come up has resulted in a mildly euphoric body feel and a general warm and happy mood. Music sounds great!

Definitely feeling the lyrica. Free and light body feeling is enjoyable and mild euphoria continues. Multi tasking is difficult and concentration span is reduced. Feeling chatty and lively.

Euphoria and chattyness (is that even a word?) are increasing although this is likely an effect increased by the 3 pints of lager. We have a few tokes on an electric cigarette that has been modified to vaporise a solution of eliquid the synthetic cannibainoid 5F-AKB-48 (we call it the e-bift). This definitely has made us feel pretty high and increases the lyrica and alcohol related effect. The high wears off after 30mins or so which is a major disadvantage of the synthetic cannibanoids. We continue to smoke the e-bift throughout the night but we feel it has a minor effect on the overall experience from the Lyrica.

T+3.10 or something
Feeling pretty good. coordination and motor control are pretty bad but it's quite fun. The full moon and clouds outside look beautiful. We're feeling tired but still have an invigorating body buzz. We feel as if we could continue drinking for the rest of the night and enjoy the high from the Lyrica. At this moment we feel free to move and enjoy the senses.. sound, sight and movement.

Heavy body feel, very unstable. Hard to type. feeling like a coffee and a fag and some fresh air will make us more stable. We feel tired but still enjoying the high. The high seems to be building slowly although the couple of pints may have accelerated the effect.

Consumed another pint of lager and feeling pretty tired as it is getting on for 5 in the morning, it has been a long day for the both of us after a weekend of binge drinking. Sleep feels as if it will come easy even though we are still feeling strong effects from the lyrica, which we would like to stay up and enjoy.

We head to bed and attempt to watch the latest Top Gear episode online. One of us feels some nausea and is sick but this is likely from the combination of a weekend of prolonged drinking and a stomach full of lager and coffee. The other has no nausea. During previous occasions we never felt any nausea from Lyrica. Sleep comes easily before the end of the top gear episode.

2.30pm the next day
Awoke feeling very nice, no hangover but we didn't really drink much. We finish watching the tv episode we fell asleep watching, whilst enjoying a few puffs on the e-bift. Definite afterglow from the Lyrica which lasts a few hours. Feeling fresh and lively all day. A very nice night in.
