My first drug experience, outside of having a drink, occurred during my sophomore year of college when a friend introduced me to robotripping. I drank a 4oz. bottle of Robitussin maximum strength cough and then proceeded to marching band rehearsal. At first I didn't think anything was going to happen but, as anyone who's done DXM knows, it takes about an hour to kick in. So, sometime in the middle of rehearsal I began to feel the effects. I remember I felt drunk but it was a 'clean' drunk or something. I didn't feel sick and I felt more euphoric than with alcohol.
Also, it totally killed my hunger and I noticed my perception of time was slowed down. For example, I'd ask a friend for the time maybe three or four times within a minute. The biggest drawback to my new-found drug was it made me very uncoordinated. I had trouble speaking, walking and playing trumpet for the matter. It was hard for me to be able to identify what notes I was playing as everything sounded like white noise and any finesse I had on the instrument was stripped away once the DXM had taken hold. This was only the first of many experiences I've had with this drug and I'll share more later.
