Bad Come Up To A Wonderful Ending

The metocin had arrived the day prior to the trip, we sorted out the doses by eye so this is only an approximation but I took about 17 mg, with another person taking aprox. 15 and another aprox. 30.

I was VERY anxious going into this and the first effect I experienced was that anxiety being elevated dramatically. It removed all other aspects of how I felt and just left me with this anxious 'I don't want to trip' feeling. A bit of background info: My last experience with Mushrooms was for a large part, extremely bad.

All 3 of us noticed time speeding up dramatically, we had just turned on a music video, thinking it had been roughly 5 seconds when it had really been a minute. We did not skip it at all, we actually watched a minute at this increased speed.

I started to feel tired (I usually do after taking a psychedelic) and felt like I could sleep very easily. This was partly out of a desire to end the discomfort by sleeping. About an hour, two hours in, I felt completely mind-fucked. I lost sense of reality, I didn't know how I function during the week, I didn't understand what a person was, what anything was. My memory was largely gone.

I began swinging between confusion, fear and sadness to confusion, laughter and happiness. All 3 of us found metocin to be MUCH funnier than mushrooms. Time slowed down dramatically, I felt as if there should be a lot more hours in the day (24 is such a low number.) I clearly remember looking at the time on my computer and it saying '23:16' This really annoyed me because for some reason I thought my bad trip took place at that exact same time. (It didn't.)

I really needed the bathroom at one point but there was just too much going on in front of my eyes to even navigate across the room, I could barely stand up. Later when I started coming down I managed to overcome my fear and go.

Metocin is a very easy and gentle psychedelic, I'm sure that if I had tripped this strongly on any other psychedelic I would of had a bad time but with Metocin, I DID feel anxious and fearful, but it was easy to sort out. Anything that was bothering me was clear and easy to spot out unlike how I find mushrooms. The visuals were also a lot more clear than mushrooms. By the end of the trip I was going through every single kind of scenario I could think of and could NOT comprehend how any of them could be bad. I thought I could be happy forever.

This is probably one of the better psychedelics out there and has it's benefits over shrooms. I'd say for me, it is equally as good as any mainstream psychedelic, if not better.
