I started around 11pm, my cousin was in town for the weekend. He was pretty wasted while we were playing some nintendo 64 games. He passed out on the couch downstairs but I didn't feel quite like hitting the sack yet, I had only had a couple beers. I went upstairs to my room and weighed out roughly 5mg, dumped it in an empty gelatin capsule and down the hatch. I decided to start with 5mg because that's what I gathered would be about half of a common dose after fumbling around a couple drug discussion forums.
I am unable to put the events together in chronological order because it was a couple weeks ago but from what I remember I started feeling the threshold effects around 20 minutes in, about an hour is when it started to peak and about 2 1/2 - 3 hours in was when I noticed it was starting to fade out. 4 hours in, still felt a bit dreamy but my thought patterns had (mostly) returned to normal.
Hallucinations... were mild. I felt the sort of heightened senses and feelings of mindfulness I get on acid or other psyches. Visually not much, no real distortions of any kind, but there was a slight 80's vibe to everything color/texture wise. But definitely nothing dramatic. Audio hallucinations were present, I first noticed when I went outside for a smoke. I heard sounds of the house creaking and similar noises that normally don't happen so frequently if at all. I remember doing things like stepping on stairs or turning a door knob and the sounds they made were a bit different than how I normally hear them.
My body felt pretty numb, a bit tingly at times. I attempted to do some pushups to see if I had superhuman strength but only ended up doing a bit more than normal. I noticed sometimes I was doing things a bit too strongly without noticing, like pressing buttons on my phone kinda hard or cracking my knuckles too far. Fortunately I didn't chew the shit out of my cheek without realizing it like I always do on molly.
The head-space I got was strange, the closest I could come to summing it up is DXM + LSD with a hint of evil madness. Somewhat disorganized and racing thoughts. I could still have a coherent conversation with a couple friends on facebook and do pretty much anything I felt like while looking sober.
Elaborating on the 'evil madness': I just remember after taking a dump on the peak, walking over to the mirror and staring at myself for a bit. I looked like different person but still the same, can't describe it really. Then I started smiling for no reason in particular, and felt a small urge to punch the mirror as hard as possible. The urge subsided about 10 seconds later, but as I was staring at myself the left side of my mouth and eye did kind of a twitch which was extremely unsettling. I thought for a second that this might be the moment I completely lose my shit so I walked away.
For most of the trip I ended up listening to music, and music sounded almost exactly to me as it does on a 1st/2nd plat dose of DXM. More alive, able to hear all the subtle details that are worked into songs and follow all the different melodies separately at once. Every little bit of sound is noticed and appreciated.
Occasionally I could start to feel myself becoming manic. It was that wild slightly-too-high-amphetamine-dose rollercoaster feeling of 'let's do a shit ton of pushups because.. i don't know god damn I really just am the greatest'. Nevertheless I wasn't on that strong of a dose, when I started on that train I was able to quickly remind myself to slow down, I'm not superman I'm just high on PCP. I don't want to do anything reckless.
The most peculiar effect I felt was a sense of familiarity and nostalgia with everything. I'd look at something like a battery and then think to myself 'wow I've never looked at that battery this way since the first time I saw it, it almost feels foreign or alien, and as if all my preconceived notions and ideas about what that battery was were just reset'. Nonsensical stoner babble perhaps, but you get the overall idea.
The following days I didn't really notice any afterglow effects besides feeling hungover the next morning. But for the record I burped once a couple days after and it kinda tasted like PCP.
Overall it was pretty mild, I got a solid grip on what the drug was like. Most likely I will try it again at 10-15mg, definitely under the supervision of a trip sitter who knows what he/she's doing. After the next trip, meh, it's an interesting experience and all but much to unpredictable for me and my OCD tendencies' tastes.
