Like Dreaming, but Still Being Awake

1 mg oral Pharms - Lorazepam (pill / tablet)
First Timer

It was my first time using Ativan. It was given to my friend and he let me have one. It was a small white, 1 mg, pill. I had taken it at night around 10:00 p.m. I was in a good mood before I took it. I wasn't tired and I had ate about 3 hours before I took the pill.

I don't have any case of illness. I am not allergic to anything and I do not have any case of anxiety or paranoia, just to let you in on some facts. Overall, what I am trying to say, is that nothing could really effect my trip with Ativan.

So let me continue with around the time of 10:30 p.m. I hadn't felt anything and it had been 30 minutes from when I took it. I kept talking to my friends, standing up once in a while to see if it kicked in. It hadn't kicked in until maybe 11:10 p.m., roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes from when I took the pill. I started to feel really relaxed and almost lazy, but it wasn't hard to stay standing up and do something active once I had stood up.

Around midnight, I had began to talk a little slower and I had an urge to lay down. I began to close my eyes and almost fall asleep. If anyone is familiar to the feeling of having opium, it is described like dreaming, but still being awake. I hadn't fallen asleep, but I felt like I was dreaming. I also could pay attention to what my friend was talking about. I had 3 sessions of these dream/awake feelings which lasted between 15 and 20 minutes each. It was a great.

Eventually, my friend, who had done the same dosage as me, fell asleep at 1:15 p.m. It took me alot to wake him up. I had to shake his head for a few seconds. When he woke up, we had gone back to his room and fell asleep in a heartbeat.

So overall, I give Ativan a high representation. It was a great relaxant. I hope to use it again in the near future. I will also experiment Ativan with another drug, such as cannabis.
