I believe it was yesterday that I reported my salvia trip. Since then a few things have happened that I would like to add.

I only smoked the salvia twice, but last night I went on a trip without it.

I drank a little bit, but enough to barely get buzzed. Some Korean vodka mixed with beer (it actually tasted really good). But what set me off was the marijuana. Me and my friend had just made a gravity bong, so we decided to put it to good use. I smoked only weed, no salvia, but after the first hit from the gravity bong I could already tell that I was more than high.

Within about a half hour I took a couple more BIG rips. After I'm not sure how many, perhaps the fifth, I felt like I could no longer stand up. I was like dude, I NEED to sit down right now. I stumbled into the house, and sat on the couch.

I'm not really sure what was going on. I'm not sure if this was a hallucination, but I had this very real feeling that everything was pressing down.
I had this very real feeling that everything was pressing down.
When I looked around it looked like everything, even people, were being/about to be pushed down flat into a 2D field. I felt my muscles straining, and I was physically pushing myself flat into the sofa. I initially did it without knowing about it, and would have continued to if one of my friends hadn't asked me if I were alright. His voice seemed to drag me out of the 'sinking' feeling.

Another way of describing this might be that I started to feel as if I were part of the couch. It was either as if the couch was trying to absorb me, or as if I were trying to be absorbed into the couch. (a slight difference, but I feel it's important as it means at times I thought the couch had more than inanimacy to it)

It may be important to note that I lay on the couch for about a half hour, and during this entire time I did not move, other than down into the couch. One of my friends said that I kept opening and closing my eyes, and that I looked like I was tripping mad balls (which I was lol).

Another side note: Everyone in the room was speaking Korean, which I do not understand. This resulted in me zoning them completely out. When I think back on what happened, even though there were about seven of them, they were all drunk and I'm sure extremely noisy, I dont remember ever hearing them say anything. The only person who I remember talking to me was my friend I went to their house with, who only speaks English. It was his voice that dragged me out of the sofa.

I'm not sure why I went on this trip, and this one was not that frightening. However, it lasted almost the entire time that I was high. I didn't have the trip inside my head, or experience any alternate realities, but I know without a doubt it was not caused by the alcohol or weed.
