4 oz oral GHB (liquid)


I was at a club with some freinds and one of the girls had found a 'new freind.' This guy had a 20 oz water bottle of something, which I later found out was GHB. A couple of my freinds had been sipping on the bottle, and I was offered some. Being the stupid, half-asleep, being 2:30 AM, guy I was at that point, I decided that I could use some as well. The guy that gave it to me said that it would be like rolling, something I had never done, but was looking forward to trying. So I drank a about 4-5 oz of the bottle, not knowing the correct dosage. I was fine for a while, but after about 30 mins, I was sitting on a couch and I started getting crazy visuals, almost as intense as a hard acid trip - something I have done MANY times - and was finding them very enjoyable. Then I tried to stand up and I couldn't keep balance, so I sat back down. Then a couple of my sober freinds saw that I was in trouble and started to carry me out. I was vomiting violently by this point, and later found out most of what came up was blood, not vomit. As we turned the corner to go downstairs, I passed out.

The next thing I know I was lying down, not able to move or open my eyes, and that was pretty scary. I could hear people talking, saying something to the effect of 'He's coming out of it.' I couldn't figure out if I was laying on a dorm bed, as that was where I was staying, or in the hospital. When I opened my eyes, I saw the much dreaded walls of the Intensive Care Unit, and was terrified. My parents were sitting next to my bed when I woke up, and shortly thereafter my best freind, the girl that quite possibly saved my life, walked in. To this day I remember the relief my parents felt when they found out I was ok and the terror that I felt when I woke up in the hospital, not able to move at all.

I will never, and should never have, touch GHB again. This little incident shows how fragile the human body is and that one person really can make a difference. I will never forget that night, and never want anything like that to occur again.
