It was Friday night and most of my friends were at this party that I wasn't invited to so I was a bit down in the dumps and bored. This guy I know called J calls me up and say's let's hang out, I don't really feel like it so I stay home for a while and eat 2 grams of magic mushrooms out of self-pity.

It all begins with the mushrooms.

0:00 – Chew on mushrooms for about 5 minutes on an empty stomach.

0:10 – Smoke a little bit of catnip.

0:40 – Mushrooms have taken a hold, I feel relaxed and start getting heavy feelings of tranquilisation... I've taken mushrooms about 20 times so I don't have very hard trips off 2 grams anymore. My friend J calls, 'Come on man, we'll score some mushrooms' he says.

1:00 – I find myself walking with a big grin on my face up the street to meet J.

1:20 – The mushrooms are making me a little bit unbalanced, giggly, I feel good inside, like I’ve drunk about 5 beers. J announces, 'Man, we're gonna snort some coke.' I'm a little nervous I’ve never snorted coke and that is a definite step up in the drug chain, I feel the drug chain starts at pot and goes: pot-mush-ecstasy-DXM/acid-crystal meth-coke-heroin. With lots more in between.. Anyhow.. I was only at the acid stage and was taking a huge step into the world of heavy drugs. However... I'm bored, not invited to a party and feel like trying something new, feeling open-minded, happy, and experimental.

1:40 – A car pulls up, we hop in, a guy hands us the coke and some pot.

2:00 – J rails a line, his eyes glaze a bit. He says his throat hurts. I'm excited and rail 2 lines at once. My throat was burning so bad. It felt like I’d swallowed battery acid, my eyes watered, and I got a weird feeling of disgust.

2:04 – Wow, I lost all physical feeling in my body except for a slight discomfort in my throat. I feel like I am bullet-proof, I get a huge energy rush.

2:10 – Walking very fast to Starbucks, we could run but we stop ourselves.

3:00 – The speedy feeling starts to end, followed by a mushroom feeling. I notice with the coke that it pushed the mushroom feeling away. I felt very fast, invincible, and pain-free, I noticed I enjoyed the trip if I was walking or moving fast, however I felt nauseous and disgusting when in a movie store or sitting for a moment. J and I decide to rail the rest.

3:15 – I rail another 2 lines, J's nose bleeds but we ignore that and he rails more.

3:30 – It's not as intense this time, it is very controllable, my heart is beating fast, I feel fine, bullet-proof, paranoid, sketchy. But I'm having a lot of fun, this drug is very different to Pot, and Mush and ecstasy and hallucinogens. It isn't a funny drug really. It didn't make me giggle. It gave me courage, strength, speed, and more. All in all it was a lot of fun.

4:15 – those lines die out into a mushroom feeling which is a little bit empty.

Next 4 hours – Very empty feelings.

Next day – I wanted to do it again but firmly said no.

Be careful if you are doing cocaine. One time and I understand the addictive potential.
