Well, I've been wondering about doing acid for quite a while but what really got me to do it is when a kid came to school fried and he was telling me about all this shit he saw and how cool it was. So I did some research and asked lots of questions about acid. I asked him if he could hook me up with 2 tabs and I waited for about 2 weeks before he finally got them. I sort of had an understanding of what it would be like; Seeing colors, everything is all crazy looking so I wouldn't think it would be a big deal.
I tried to find a place to do the acid for a while because i wanted to be sure that everything was cool and i wasn't going to get busted. Finally I asked my friend (Allen) if I could spend the night at his house and his parents weren’t home so everything would be perfect. My two other friends (Dave & Dan) came over to his to spend the night too. All of them weren’t really interested in trying acid and didn’t want me to either but I wanted to so they said all right whatever. They were drinking a lot though so they were already drunk when I got to his house. I also brought a big hunk of hydro chronic so we could get really fucked up. Anyways, I hesitated for a while before taking the tabs because the Allen didn’t know if his grandma was coming to pick him up since his parents were in Las Vegas. She called and he said everything is fine and I felt a little safer so I took 1 tab at a time.
Nothing really happened for like half an hour so I decided to go smoke the weed with them. At this point I started trippin and I was fucked up. I wasn’t seeing things yet though. They started whispering to each other and I was like, “what the fuck is going on.” They all started fucking with me and told me that my eyes were bleeding and shit. They turned off all the lights in the house and I was scared as fuck. They all disappeared and I was searching all around the house for them. I felt like I was in a horror movie and they were the killers. I started walking around the house going, “you guys, come on stop fucking with me, this is scary shit.” But I still couldn’t find them. All of the sudden I turn around and the light turns on in the backyard. And I was freaking out. Then something jumps at the glass doors and bangs on them and I was scared as hell. There was banging everywhere and they kept making these scary sounds. Dave kept saying, “John, go to the light, John go now or you will die, and shit like that and I was freaking out. So I just did as he said and went toward the light by the stairs. Then they all came out wearing scary Halloween costumes and had baseball bats.
I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a knife and said, “stay away from me or I’m going to do something crazy and I’m fucking serious, dude. You guys really don’t want to fuck with me right now!” I wanted to stab myself and get it over with because I was so scared, and I was fucking pissed and still a little scared now, but I didn’t know what to do. They tricked me into giving them the knife then they told me that they were going to kill me and all started talking at the same time.
My mind was going crazy and I just fell to the floor and passed out for like I think 2 min. When I woke up I felt them dragging me outside and they threw me on the grass, ran inside and locked the door. I could hear them talking inside and laughing at how funny the shit was but I was fucking scared. I was trippin so bad and I kept asking them to let me in because it was freezing cold. I just sat there on the porch waiting.
After about 15 minutes something just jumped at me and scared the fuck out of me. I saw that it was someone in a ski mask but I thought it was going to kill me and it had a baseball bat. So I ran away down the street and it was chasing me but I screamed, “I have had enough of this, I want to get out. Fuck this shit.” And I started charging at person in the ski mask and socked it like 10 times but then he took off the mask and I saw it was Allen and I was begging him to stop all of this and to stop fucking with me. He said ok and it was all a joke so I said ok thank you. We started walking towards the house, and then he started running inside but I tried to keep up. When I got there everyone was gone so I went everywhere and checked and it was all how it started.
I opened the door to the garage where we smoked out to see if they were there and went inside. Then all of the sudden I hear the door slamming and I was like holy shit, nooooo!! They locked me in there and I kept begging them to let me out. I was really freaking out and I couldn’t understand reality. This is when the hallucinating begins.
After about 20 minutes of being locked in the freezing cold garage talking to myself and begging them to let me out I looked at the wall and saw all of these patterns. They all started to get wavy and swirly. All of the pipes and wires were all dancing around the room and I was lovin it. It was so dope. The walls looked like they were breathing and kept going back and forth. I looked at this huge piece of wood with a bunch of holes in it. I think it is like a tool holder or something. Well, I saw 1 ant at first but all of the sudden they were everywhere and I got all freaked out. I yelled for my so called friends but they were laughing and everything started spinning. I looked at the door and saw a bunch of glowing paint and it looked pretty dope. I remembered that I brought a shit load of candy in my bag because I heard that it tastes so good when frying. So I put a starburst in my mouth and it was true. I could taste it 10 times more than if I was sober. I just started grubbing out on all my candies and it tasted sooooo good. I loved it.
It seemed like there were two different kinds of hallucination-the scary kind where I saw really freaky shit that I didn’t want to see, and the trippy kind that was really dope. Glowing lights and neon shit look really cool.
I asked my friends if they could at least throw me a blanket or jacket or something because I had no shirt on and it was freezing cold-seriously. They told me to go stand far away from the door and opened it. They threw me the jacket and a bag of chips. At that point, I realized that it was all just a trick or that’s what I was thinking along with a million other possibilities. I felt like I lost control of reality and I didn’t know what to believe. I thought that there were 2 sides of my friends; like evil twins. When they were really fucking with me with the baseball bats and shit-and when they told me everything’s cool.
I talked to them through the door and they said that they are doing this for my own good, and they asked me if I wanted to try acid again and I said “no, just please let me out of here let me out, I just want to sit on the couch and chill with you guys. Why are you fucking with me so much?” I started to break a few tears because it was too much to handle—and I bet anyone would of done the same if they were in my situation. They thought that I would kill them if they let me out and said that I was too dangerous out there but I disagreed.
They kept asking me what I would do if they let me out and I said, “I wont do anything I just want to go inside the house. I’m not going to kill you guys. Why would I do that? I just want to go in the warm house and go to sleep and get out of this tripp. Just leave me alone and stop fucking with my head. I want to see that this is all real and not just my imagination.” I didn’t know if I was dreaming or not but I just wanted to know the truth. Finally, I got them to open the door for me and I was so relieved when I got out. I talked to them for a while and told them about what I saw in the garage and everything and I was coming down now so I was sort of cool now. We went upstairs to Allen’s room and climbed out his window onto the roof. He had this really cool water balloon launcher so we started launching eggs and grapefruits at houses and after that we went teepeeing houses and it was dope. We stayed up all night long and had to wake up at 6:00 in the morning since they all had baseball games, so I called my dad to pick me up and slept until about 3:00p.m.
After that crazy experience I don’t think that I will try acid in the near future and if I ever do it again then I suggest doing it with people I can trust—and I think everyone should take that advice.
