This report is not about me. It is about a guy I knew. He took 5MeO 4 or 5 times a day over about 3 years. He would completely zone out for about 20mins at a time. Once, we was found drowned in his hot-tub after taking 5MeO while sitting in it. He was revived, but it did not slow down his use at all.

One day, he completely lost his short-term memory. Just like that. 'Woah! Reality just shifted!' he said. Thereafter, every 15mins, he forgot where he was and what he was doing. He is the Memento Man. After a few months, he lost his long-term memory too. Friends became strangers. It was like Alzheimers.

This is a warning to all.
