Up Too Fast

20 mg oral 2C-I (powder / crystals)


I had heard a lot of hipe about 2C-I. Never one negitive thing. Being the known queen of the psychodelic drug world in my ring of friends, this was something that I felt I had to do.

I bought (2) 20mg capsules of 2C-I at a party-- one for my fiance and one for myself. This was going to be the trip of my life... or so I had thought.

We took them the next night. While we were waiting for the pills of 2C-I to kick in, we sat watching a terrifying movie, where everyone in it had horrible trips. 2 hours since we had taken the pills and we hadn't felt a thing.. I was getting pissed.

As soon as the movie ended, I began to feel tingily all over. It was as though my body was in an everlasting orgasm. I began to go up very fast. I suddenly felt a dire urge to explore the world around me... to go outside.

Outside, everything seemed so pure, and so clear. As I walked I felt as though the grass was taller then myself, although it had just been mowed the day before. I walked to the end of my drive way, fiance at hand. We stood there for what seemed an eternity. I had never tripped this hard before. I began to become frightend that I was to become the first 2C-I related and reported death on erowid.

My fiance and I walked back to the house and sat outside on our front steps. I felt overly fidgety and couldn't be happy with any way that I would situate my body. My fiance noticed my aura of panic, and asked me how I was doing. I explained to him that I had gone up way too fast and how I was begining to freak out. He still didn't feel anything.

I looked up at the sky. Not a cloud in sight. My reflection was as clear as could be in the sky, and my fiance's as well. This couldn't be happening. I had never had one bad trip in my life.

My fiance, begining to get worried, called a very experienced friend of ours and put him on the phone to talk to me. All I could say is that I wanted more then life itself to come down, to end the trip. He told me that it was 'pretty hard-core stuff' and not to worry. I felt much better. I was no longer pleading with god (who I never had believed in before) for my life.

We went back to our room where everything was amazing. I stared at the wall, watching a wave of liquid metal envelop everything. The curtains, the ceiling, the lights, all looked as though they were a shiny polished metal. Everything was so pristine. I looked at my hand and saw the most amazing tracers ever. There was a beautifully colored rainbow with butterflies chasing the rainbow. If only it would have lasted...

Digital. That's what everything became. It was as though everything in sight had had a grid of wire placed over it and chopped it all into seperate pieces. They fell to the ground leaving me seeing only the code of the matrix itself. I realized that there really was NO spoon. I could hear metallic ping type noises (watch Cube II for a great example). I stayed in this place until I finally began to come down from my trip. I began to feel like I was on acid. My fiance and I were both very talkitive, and in great mind states for the rest of the night.

In retrospect.. I would definately do this drug again. Although quite frightening at first, there were a lot of great, detailed visuals, which I completely became a part of. The feeling of going up too fast could be compaired to taking a moderate dose of ecstacy on an empty stomach while also being dehydrated.

I would totally recommend massaging those around you who are on this drug, as well as scoring a massage for yourself. Sex, also, is absolutely ungodly wonderful. After a while my body began to ache, and these two things put me in complete heaven.
