Previous Experiences: Marijuana (been cutting back, but still a nightly toker), DXM, MXE, 2C-E, 2C-I, 2C-P, 4-FA, Mephedrone, LSA(HBWR), DMT, Mescaline, Psilocybin Mushrooms, Salvia Divinorum, 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and DOC(one previous experience).

I made a couple large orders for Research Compounds earlier in the year, Spring/Summer time as far as I remember, it is now November. Out of the 100mg DOC that I acquired I inoculated a 10 strip of blotter tabs at about 1.5-2mg per tab.

I've only had one previous experience with DOC over the summer, I could not fully submerse myself into the experience, and ended up throwing 25I-NBOMe, and 2C-E into the mix, and was overall let down by the effects. I don't think it was the proper time for that first experience.

Yesterday, I was in the mood for a psychedelic experience, to help me get out of a rut I've been stuck in. It was Saturday, and I knew I was going to have most of the day to myself. I decided it was time to give the tabs of DOC sitting in my freezer another go.

10:30am [t-0:00] I've decided to take my dose a little differently this time around. I pop half a tab (about .75-1mg) under my tongue. It tastes bitter as the saliva builds up in my mouth.

11:30am [t+1:00] I've had the half tab under my tongue for an hour now, and I figure it's time to swallow it down. So I grab my glass of water and do so. I'm not feeling much of anything at this point. I'm starting to feel a bit stimulated, and my body has a slight buzz flowing smoothly. It's time to do some yard work, like every Saturday.

11:45am [t+1:15] I'm starting to feel a little spacey at this point, with a nice mood lift setting in. I fill up our tractor tires with air, and turn it over to warm up a bit.

12:00pm [t+1:30] - Time to pick up all the fallen branches from Hurricane Sandy which came through this area earlier in the week. As I'm walking through the yard looking for fallen debris, I notice it is becoming a little difficult to spot some of the smaller branches among the leaves, all the fall colors on the ground seem to be blending together

12:10pm [t+1:40] The euphoria is steadily climbing as I cut the grass, and it feels great to be outside doing work, even it is a bit chilly. My body is feeling increasingly light and airy with a stimulating buzz, as my mind feels crystal clear, and in the moment. I've got John Brown's Body playing on my headphones (one of my favorite bands to trip to).

1:00pm [t+2:30] Grass is finished, and I'm feeling really good. The best mood I have been in all week. The effects are slowly climbing.

1:15pm [t+2:45] I go inside, and talk to my mother for a bit. She tells me that I have a package on the front steps. I get super excited and grab it, knowing exactly what it is. It's a microphone for my PC that I had ordered earlier in the week. I have many plans for this device, as I have been working on an Internet Marketing business, and would like to start making videos with commentary. I tear it out of the box and look it over. It looks pretty sturdy and I'm happy with my purchase, I'll have to test it out tomorrow!

1:30pm [t+3:00] In the shower and it feels great. The hot water warms up my chilled body, and I feel more alive than ever. The drips on the shower walls are slightly wavering and swirling if I focus in one spot for a while.

2:30pm [t+4:00] Not too much to comment on in the past hour. I went onto my computer to watch some videos, and brainstorm some ideas for my business. The effects of the drug have been steadily increasing since ingestion, the mood lift is great, good stimulation/body buzz, and a good amount of euphoria at this point for such a small dose. I decide it's time to take the other half of the tab (another .75-1mg)

3:00pm [t+4:30] I'm watching some more videos, continuing with ideas swirling through my brain. I can feel the rest of my dose kicking in almost immediately. The longer the half tab sits under my tongue the more psychedelic I feel. It's growing with intensity with each minute, and I'm feeling slightly confused at this point. I decide to swallow it down with some water.

3:45pm [t+5:15] I have since left my computer chair, and I'm feeling very antsy. My mind has calmed down and is feeling clear and euphoric again. Everything is still slowly intensifying, and I'm feeling more stimulated. I decide to go for a walk around the neighborhood.

During my walk it feels like I'm viewing the world through a video camera. The way everything moves as I move feels like different camera angles. My mood is up up up, and I feel like I'm just moving with the energy in my body and in my surroundings.

4:00pm [t+5:30] I'm back inside from my walk. I was beginning to get pretty chilly, and I'm recovering from a flu, so I didn't want to spend too much time out there. The quick walk really got my blood circulating, my legs are a bit numb, and I feel as though my body/mind is swimming. That typical (for me anyway) psychedelic feel where my body/mind is consistently changing/warping, and my surroundings begin doing the same. Textures on the floor and curtains begin to shift, and objects/walls begin to breathe (oscillate in size). Reading text on the computer is a little tough, my eyes keep doing this thing where it's like I am looking through multiple fish eye lenses, like everything in my view is bubbling out towards me.

4:30pm [t+6:00] I feel like I am still climbing higher. This has to be the most bizarre psychedelic I've had swimming through my brain. I've never felt so normal and with it, and so far out in outer space at the same time. It's as though one minute I am in my normal state thinking normal thoughts, and the next I am looking through a psychedelic filter, and enjoying deep philosophical thoughts. Each hour that passes, I am being pulled further into the experience. I should also note that time has slowed down dramatically.

5:00pm [t+6:30] I am very happy with how the day has gone. I feel great, and it just keeps getting better. I feel stimulated and alert, but at the same time I feel totally relaxed like I could lay down and nap if I wanted to. I decide to watch some episodes of Saturday Night Live from the 90s on Netflix.

6:00pm [t+7:30] Hilarity ensues, and I can stop laughing at the skits on this show. At certain times I'll take a sudden shift and begin analyzing human interaction between the cast members, then realize that this is how most Americans interact in real life, and I just find it all the more hilarious.

7:00pm [t+8:30] I believe I have hit the plateau of this substance. I don't feel as though I am climbing any further, just at a steady rhythm and flow which feels wonderful.

There is not much to comment on for the rest of the night. I originally had plans to out with a friend, which I was looking forward to some human interaction. Sociability at this dose seems very high, I at no point in time had any trouble conversing with friends and family throughout the day. Sadly my friend was not feeling well so the plans were canceled. I ended up spending the rest of the night being lazy on my couch watching Saturday Night Live.

I am amazed at the sticking power of this substance. At about 9:00pm [t+10:30], I decided to enjoy a bowl of ganja. With each hit I was feeling more and more confused, and actually had a slight paranoid break out which usually doesn't happen to me. My heart was racing, and I had some very bizarre thoughts about the episode and content of the SNL episode I was watching. This only lasted 5 minutes or so, I was able to calm down quickly and go back to focusing on the moment.

I stayed up to watch the new episode of SNL, Louis CK was the host, and it was a great episode. I went to bed at 1:00am [t+14:30], still feeling under the grip of the drug. I had no problem falling asleep, I actually slept really good and had some very meaningful dreams this morning.

I got out of bed at about 9:00am [t+25:30] (clock change was last night, set the clocks back, so that's where the extra hour came in), still feeling slightly altered. Going for a hike today to spend some time in the outdoors while I fully come back to baseline.

Overall it was a great experience, and I don't think it could have gone any better. Though there were times during the experience where I felt a little bored (towards the end of the night). A feeling like, yeah this is great, but I kind of wish it would just stop. I was very impressed with the strength and longevity of this compound, and I'm looking forward to my next experience with it, which probably won't be for quite some time. As with other trip reports I've read, it has a great effect of holding you in the present moment. I've never been that focused on what was right in front of me at any given time, like I was under the effects of DOC.

Please do not underestimate the power of this substance. As with most phenethylamines this is a creeper and takes a long time to reach plateau, and it might be tempting to take more thinking that you took too low of a dose. Just ride it out.
