  T+ 2:20 25-30 mg insufflated Ketamine (powder / crystals)


I started the night off getting to the club really early, because I had nothing else to do, was already in town and my friend was running late. I had stayed out super late the night before, mainly ingesting ~100mg of MDMA throughout the night.

I wanted to get high again this night as well. I knew no one at the club and had limited funds, so the $20 pills of MDMA were out of the question. I had about 50mg of MDMA crystal in my wallet and ingested that at 21:30. By 22:00 I had felt a small buzz, but knew it simply was not enough to get me going as I had taken a larger amount the night before.

I was on a quest to find a hookup for MDMA. My friend finally came at 22:30. He informed me that he did not bring his MDMA, as he was sick of it, and was going to use Ketamine tonight. I had never done K before, as the idea of taking a tranquilizer was not my idea of fun.

By 23:30, I grew impatient and the MDMA was already wearing off. Before I knew it, I was so desperate to get high that I snorted about 10-15mg of Ketamine. In the next 20 minutes I took about 25-30mg.

At Midnight, I was starting to peak. It felt like I was coming up on MDMA, except only got to about 65% and was stuck there. I was not steady on my feet and felt very slow when I was peaking.

At 00:30, I needed to get out of that club. I started to feel self conscious because I was all dressed up. I normally dress up when I go out, even if I'm going to a PSY Trance night. It's just the way I am and I've never had a problem with it no matter where I was until this night. Everyone else was wearing crazy colors, while I'm in this dress shirt and pants. For the first time, I felt extremely out of place, 'What the fuck am I doing here' attitude.

So I just bolt towards the exit and start heading to the same afterhours I went to last night (the night before was a blast there). Stumbling and feeling somewhat drunk, I make my way there. Ahh, finally, I felt more accepted here, more comfortable. Except I don't feel the Ketamine as much anymore and the MDMA is long gone. However, every time I go next to the speaker, I start tripping out and enjoying it pretty well. But as soon as I leave the speaker, I started to think some pretty negative things. Such as, 'Why am I here by myself tonight? Last night was so much better... I should have stayed home.'
So I get up again, and start dancing. Except I feel like I'm stuck in an egg. I can't break out my normal dance moves, I feel restricted. But not so high. I begin to feel paranoid that people are making fun of the way I dance. So I get the hell out of there.

So in the end, I just ended up being self conscious and a bit paranoid. I did not enjoy my trip, and will not be doing Ketamine in the future, even if I am really desperate to get high.
