Our understanding of the literature is that there is no such thing as safe recreational use of volatile solvents, aerosols and other street inhalants : their psychoactive effects are inseparable from nerve and organ damage. We have chosen to include these reports to help document the real world use of inhalants, but their inclusion is not intended to imply that they are anything but dangerous.]
Initially I was not interested in the concept of inhaling Freon. It would be the first actual drug I had taken... I typically get drunk once every 2 or 3 weekends, and I smoke red 100s constantly, but it was nothing compared to what I got out of Freon.
After getting over the initial phobia of taking Freon into my lungs, I inhaled 5 large huffs. Onset occured within 5 to 10 seconds.
It began with my limbs starting to spin and my vision losing focus. I spoke and realized my voice had hit a very low octave... the point at which I could produce the voice of Lucifer... without the aid of a sound editing package.
At that point my vision began to spin and a wa-wa sound began to fill my head. At that point my vision was spinning to the point that I could swear my head was turning in 360 degree spins. I saw the faces of my two friends (in the front seats of the Pathfinder we occupied). They appeared to me as small dwarfs and seemed to have quite a distance between us.
It felt like instinct, and I started to punch my friend in the face. It seemed to me like I dream - I didn't actually think I was punching him.
Typically my thoughts are quite intense, deep, and organized. However this high shut off my thinking process at all. I sat there spinning.
And then I was pissed off as it started to wear off a minute later :(
On a lighter note, we did it 5 times that night.
