Some friends and I were hanging out at the house watching tv when someone had the bright idea of giving me a Seroquel. I had been drinking all night and about an hour before, I had 5 margaritas in 30 mins at a local mexican restaurant. I was putting a dent in the 12 pack that I had bought when I looked over at my friend who was sitting on the couch next to me. At first glance I could tell that he was really messed up. I've lived with the kid for the last 3 years and I know that he can drink like a fish so I was shocked to see how incapacitated he was. He told me that he had taken a half of a pill of Seroquel. I had no idea what a Seroquel was so he explained it for me, as best he could while he was slurring and forgetting what he was talkin about. After he explained to me, vaguely, how he was feeling, he offered me one. I accepted and then came the worst experience I've had in quite a long time.

The first half and hour or so I didn't feel that much. I still just felt drunk. My friend had told me that the onset is like that of a Xanax bar so I was intently waiting on that feeling because I enjoy the effects of Xanax very much. After about 30 mins I could feel something different. My mouth got really dry, I started getting numbness in my limbs and I had a overbearing desire to chain smoke. For the next 20 - 30 mins I felt ok but not like a Xanax. I was starting to lose awareness of what was going on around me and couldn't understand peoples conversations. I mean, I could hear what they were saying and I knew the words but for some reason my mind couldn't put them in an order that made the sentences make sense to me. It still wasn't bad but it didn't make my body feel good. It was like it was just messing with my mind rather than giving my body a euphoric feeling.

About one hour after taking the pill, we decided to get in the hot tub. That's about the time that things went downhill and quickly. I was trying to keep up with the conversations that were goin on around me but I couldn't focus and speaking was out of the question. My mouth was so dry that it was difficult to say words and when I did speak it was slurred and hard to understand. I could hear myself slurring but the harder I tried to control it the worse it got. After being in the hot tub for about 15 mins or so everyone decided to get out and go inside. At this point, my friends could tell that I was severely wasted. They offered to go inside and get my towel for me, because they knew it was gonna be difficult for me to keep my balance on the wet tile floor. I managed to get out of the hot tub without having any mishaps but my legs felt like jello. I tried to stand next to the tub and drip dry while waiting for my towel but it wasn't that easy. I immediately got extremely dizzy and knew that I was on the brink of passing out. The last thing that I remember was trying to sit down on the chair behind me. I woke up to one of my friends, who was still in the hot tub at the time of my dizzy spell, picking me up. I was laying face first with my arms by my side and my ass in the air. My friends then wrapped me in a towel, took me inside and laid me on the couch. They said that I passed out as soon as they laid me down. I woke up the next morning with scrapes on my face and knees and a huge scrape across my shoulder, which was evidently from me sliding down the side of the hot tub.

To sum up my experience I would have to say that it was in no way pleasant. There was no time in my 'trip' that actually gave me a good feeling. I wouldn't recommend anyone take this drug because you could end the night like I did, in a Concrete Face Plant.
