I took my last 2C-E trip about 24 hours ago and I'm relieved to say it will be my last. I've taken it 5 times before, the last 2 times I was able to fight off the bad visions but this time they would not subside.

The trip took an hour to start and it went well for about 6 hours with heavy visuals as I was outside around a campfire with friends and family in a good environment, but as the night grew old everyone went home an I retreated to my room to drink a beer an enhance my mood with some music.

As I started coming down I got saw lots of shadows in the shape of skulls,demon faces,hideous grotesque figures. I fought with myself repeating in my head its just the trip its just the trip, but they would return momentarily.

It got really bad when I tried to lay down with eyes closed in the dark to ease my head that was by now throbbing with a migrain an my neck an back were hurting really really bad. While lying in the dark with eyes closed I heard constant snarling an growling that sounded like it was right next to my face, followed by occasional shreaking screams of children an women in the distance.

So I sat up an tried to eat an think of pleasent things but my head was filled with thoughts of my judgement day and being cast into hell for my past sins, I saw myself being devoured, I saw myself doing horrible things to other people and myself.

The worst was when I was in the most back pain with the worste headache ever, and I was exhausted enough to try an sleep. I lay there with my eyes closed tossing an turning for another 9 hours and all the while sounds and images of demons lunging out to bite my face off an thrashing at my flesh growling and screaming tormenting me constantly. I am relieved to say I will never take acid, or 2ce ever again...
