This report starts off with me rummaging through a room full of old antiques and other items that belonged to my father. I was surprised to find a pill bottle that said Tylenol 3 on it from 1975. When I opened the bottle I found a slew of various narcotics including tylenol 3's, 4's, and one pill labeled 'rorer 714'. To my surprise this happened to be the infamous Quaalude!

After confirming the identity of the mystery pill I deside to down it with a cup of water on an empty stomach. So I'm sitting on the couch after ten minutes have past and I start to notice a drunken sensation. I thought it was crazy because it had only been 10-15 minutes but after standing up and walking a few steps I could definitely tell it was the effects of the pill. I had a sensation of motion in my body that could be compared to alcohol but wasnt entirely similar.

I could only explain it as a relaxed intoxified sensation. After 30 minutes had passed by I noticed I had a tingling sensation in my hands whenever I rubbed them together or touched anything. It was very pleasant. And whenever I moved around it felt like my body was on a roller coaster. Like I would shake my head and my body would get a weightless sensation that felt like I was speeding down a hill in a roller coaster.

All in all I was very surprised of what a singular pill had to offer. I think its crazy how doctors would prescribe this much of a buzz just to help someone fall asleep. I guess people could split it in half, but it dose make sense why this was such a popular drug back in the 70's. Its felt a lot better physically than taking xanax or any other benzo, it felt almost close to a opiate, and it felt like the first time I ever got drunk. I would compare the intoxication similar to drinking 4-5 drink but not the exact same.

Any way 2 hours go by and I'm still in a stupor, bumping into walls and feeling great, when I decide to drink some liquor. I end up drinking 2 shots and it intensify the experience. In reality I just lost more motor control (bumping into things and such) and got more messed up and ended up falling asleep a few hours later, waking up a few more hours after that to be completely sober.

So there it is. I only decided to write this report because of how rare the drg itself is. And it is a great feeling for sure.
Peace and Love.
