Mentally Lost

20 mg oral 2C-E (liquid)
I was always really into Hallucinogens, any sort of drug to make me trip. I was with my 2 friends Jeff and Drew. Drew proposed the idea of taking the rest of his capsules of 2C-E which had been sitting in a plastic bag for about a month. The time felt right for some reason, it was about nine at night and the sun was just going down.

We were perched up in his garage and we all opened a pill for ourselves. Jeff poured the powder in a water bottle that was almost full and began to drink it all down. Drew decided to take the full 25 milligram pill. I opened my pill and dumped 20 milligrams into a pile and gave the rest to Jeff and Drew to share. After we all ingested our pills we sat and waited to feel this powerful psychoactive drug.

After about 30 minutes of waiting we all were feeling the body high which to me felt like the body high of ecstasy. The drug gave me the feeling of anxiety and I could tell the others had that same feeling going on. After about an hour passed the visuals started to come on strong. The first real obvious visual was my color perception was way off and I had trouble distinguishing between certain colors, such as greens and reds. The visuals got stronger and stronger as time went on. The next visual that really got to me was the color trails that would follow moving objects.

We all were starting to fall into our own trances and by 2 hours into the drug we all fell silent. I was starting to hear sounds that were not there such as laughter and the sound of somebody shuffling their feet outside. The vibes for some reason got to Drew and was too much for him to handle and ended up with him stumbling out of his chair and vomiting into a trash can. We all were freaked out by this and started to trip insanely hard. I was seeing Jeff's face morph in front of my own eyes and the room was starting to cave in on me. At this point I knew there was no turning back and we had to ride out this hard trip.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]
On the 3rd hour of the trip I was falling into a deep state of confusion and had no idea what was going on around me. I knew if I stayed in Jeff's garage any longer it would mentally scar me. I was at the brink of what felt like insanity. We all felt it was best to part ways and go to our houses and trip alone. By the fourth hour I had managed to drive my car home, which was incredibly hard to do. I went into my basement and sat in my bed. The visuals were still very clear. I was getting very stressed out because I couldn't comprehend anything that was happening in my basement. It was as if I was lost in my own mind and couldn't find my way out of this deep confusion. By the fifth hour the body high began to fade but the visuals were still there. At this point I was very exhausted and was ready to fall asleep.

The Drug fully wore off 6 hours after taking the capsule. The comedown was short and ended with me falling to sleep.
