  inhaled Nitrous Oxide (gas)


I ha been thinking about trying nitrous again after a trip to the dentist I had had. While I could write about my trip at the dentist I am going to write about how I did nitrous without any suspicion. I went up to my local grocery store and simply purchased a 'tall' can of generic whip cream. (I had purchased a cheap bag of balloons early that day.)

First off I did not shake up the whip cream so that the only thing that would come out would be the nitrous, and not the whip cream. When I got home I put the balloon over the tip of the can and I pulled it so that the balloon filled up with nitrous. I put my mouth to the balloon and first sucked in some air for oxygen, then I pinched my nose and proceed to breath in and out of the balloon for about 30 seconds.

The first sign that it is working is when my ears start to pop. After that my body begins to tingle and the world around me begins to echo, (a very cool feeling). This 'high' on one can last for about a minute. Bu I can make the effect last longer by not moving. I decided to walk around to test my coordination. I staggered a bit, but not too bad. The high didn't last long.

All in all it was worth it, but I just remember to get adequate oxygen (20%). And to use balloons. And to have music on, it is much better that way.
