20 mg oral Hydrocodone (pill / tablet)
  2000 mg oral Acetaminophen (pill / tablet)


I have been searching for something to give me a different mindset for a short period of time, then, while searching for vitamins in the medicine cabinet...I had found a bottle of vicodin. Unused. Not new...obviously, it was forgotten or my dad decided he wouldn't need it any longer.

This was a pot of gold for me.

To make sure this was true vicodin I identified them by the 350 WATSON imprint, along with their oval shape and fault in the center.

So, I chose a night where I wouldn't be caught, had plenty of time to experiment with it, and deal with a bad trip (if it even happened)

It was 11 pm. I had 4 pills laying there in my hand. I was so confident about it until now...but I guess it finally dawned on me that I was abusing a drug for the first time. I finally popped them into my mouth, washed them down with a gulp of warm water, and relaxed on a warm duvet until the side effects sunk in.

They were quicker than was 10 minutes later when I started feeling unusually warm. My skin had the tingly feelign familiar to when you wake up from a cat was quite pleasant.

I suffer from severe anxiety, and it really shocked me when I discovered that I was actually calm. Normally, the thought of school the next day led to an anxiety attack and obsessive rituals...the thought didn't phase me at all during this time.

I began reacting to sudden events slower and slower...only 30 minutes after ingesting the white pills.

I was at true peace now.
Everything was just so...neutral.
This feeling was fantastic.

It continued for a good 2 hours...I decided not to sleep that night. I couldn't even believe how i was feeling!

I thought this was a sucessful trip until I went to school...I had HORRID stomach pains, along with a massive headache. I went into zombie mode. I didn't care about anything...and not in the good way. My friends were very worried, and I only told one of them what I had done. This one was highly experienced in the drug world, and told me that she had the same thing.

In conclusion, I don't think I'll be using this again. It was nice while it lasted, but because of the after effects, and me not being able to react to low's very risky to use this regularly.
