Proper 90% proof Irish Poitín with a few tabs of LSD added for good measure. An otherwordly experience. No control of events around you at all. Not recommended.

I would say fentanyl was the worst--my doctor gave it to me once for my migraines and I gave it up in a hurry, it was way to strong and very dangerous...I do not recommend anyone take that mess...

Found out I could polish-off a couple of fifths or more of straight liquor, and drink to the point where my stomach lining was so trashed that I couldn't eat nor drink anything but water for a week, and still wake-up the next morning feeling fine, without even a trace of a hangover. (Puked my guts out, or I'd've likely died of alcohol poisoning. Cleaned-up after myself, and went to bed, slept it all off.)

I coped, and didn't complain. But the fact that I didn't even get so much as a hangover and was sober as a judge the next morning scared the living hell out of me. Figured it was a good way to become a drunk, like my old man, or die of alcohol poisoning, as my cousin did.

After that, I became that guy. I'm the guy who orders a double-shot of good whiskey, and spends the rest of the night sipping away at it. I now drink for the taste of the liquor (which I like,) and not to get drunk. Unless someone close to me dies or worse. (Don't ask about the worse.) Then I tend to polish-off a fifth, so that I can get drunk enough to fall apart and bawl my eyes out. I still don't get hangovers, though. I've only ever had one in my entire lifetime.

As for weed and opiates? They simply don't work on me. No effect, whatsoever. Which made life after major spinal surgery fun, let me tell you. They finally got the pain under control after shooting me full of Morphine and Dilaudid at levels just under what they give to the Hospice patients because they don't have to worry about it as they're going to die anyhow. Luckily, I've a hellacious pain tolerance, but it still wasn't pretty. (And believe me, I'm not boasting about this. I'd far rather have had the opiates work on me. It was a f'ugly experience. I may have a tolerance that impresses the pain specialists, but I don't like pain. Pain hurts. 'Nuff said.)

Damn! And here was me thinking my days dabbling with Absinthe (80%) were bad enough! :LOL:

I think the strongest reaction I've had was to Diazepam and Painkillers (I forget which kind, but they were STRONG!). I was on a different planet! I recorded a video of myself on my phone whilst on that mixture to see what I was like; I ended up babbling on and on, making a 15 minute long video; I only meant to make one of a few seconds just to see!

Really pure cocaine ordered from the dark net. When I stopped it triggered severe insomnia, a nervous breakdown, depression and anxiety from which I have never really recovered. That was about 4 years ago now. I pray to god I never use the stuff again, it's pure evil in my opinion. I think about it all the time and it scares the life out of me. If you are thinking about trying it after watching all the bs in the media about what a laugh it is, seriously don't.

Hmm. That would probably be injecting crystal meth with fentanyl in it. Crazy. Would not do it again as if you inject to fast, it cuts your breathe off.

Ketamine was the most powerful hallucinogen I ever took, the trip seemed realler than this shit we're experiencing now. I've given up drugs, I enjoyed acid, 'shrooms and weed the most back in the day. I've also done crystal meth, it was a particularly long binge on it that pushed me over into Schizophrenia. I had some classic shamanic experiences on 'shrooms and they were interesting.

Sometimes I regret doing drugs as they gave me MH problems, but if I hadn't have gone crazy I wouldn't have found Buddhism. I'm very lucky, I have very few symptoms on meds and meditation and mindfulness help me deal with any residual paranoid or anxious thoughts and the odd hallucination that surfaces occasionally.

Thing about Xan, I don't feel high or anything, I think I'm fine. I turn into someone who doesn't know how to walk away from something. Might not be looking for a fight, but I have no fear of consequences that create an anxiety that keeps me check.

One 2mg xan bar and one beer. Slammed two cars in the parking lot. And when I did it, I was like, hey no problem my insurance and went inside. Someone else, not either of the people I hit, just some instagaters ran up to me threatening to beat my ass. I drew my gun and scared them off. Later that night I got back in my car and ran over a curb. Effed up a bunch of stuff. 3 different accidents and deductibles were put on my license.

Days later I do the same with the xan and beer (I think the half life was still hitting me and my brain hadn't come to terms with what's just happened) and decide to meet some friends at a bar. Cab driver couldn't find, i got frustrated and told him let me out. My phone dies, I walk 6 miles into a diner to eat. Next thing I know a cop taps on the shoulder. I go to jail for unlawful carry.

I never used drugs or had any alcohol in my life but one time I had really bad episode of panic attacks and anxiety. I went to the emergency room and they injected me with something I don’t even know what.

My brother in law was with and did some stupid stuff to the nurse ☺.
I was acting like a drunk the first night. The second night I felt my body was like a feather and the air I breathed was so cool and refreshing. I was extremely happy until the medicine depleted from my system then anxiety came back.

Till this day, I still don’t and don’t want to know what it was. It just made feel so good that I was afraid of knowing the name of it fearing that I might look for it and get an addiction.

I won't go in to to much details but it involved when I was on leave from hospital in 2009.
I was waiting on the ward for my take home meds for my 4 day leave. There was some confusion with the pharmacy and I was keen to get out so when pharmacy arrived the ward just passed me the bag and I said my goodbyes.

Upon inspecting the bag I discovered I had more tablets than I should have had.

The pharmacy had accidentally added my previous prn medication and added it to my take home meds.

I have no memory of the 4 days at all. Completely missing.

I returned to the ward extremely chilled out and no tablets left. At some point I must had been to sainsburies as for some reason. I had 12 pairs of extra large y fronts (never wore y fronts in my life) and I was a size medium at the time.



Not a sensible idea and I really do not advise this action that I took.

I stayed away from everything apart from alcohol for most of my life due to my career choices (I wanted to join the army as a teenager and ended up working on the railway which has even stricter anti-drug and alcohol policies), however I've fairly recently changed careers and as the result of a drunken promise to a friend I agreed to try acid. However that wasn't available on the night concerned so she ended up getting cocaine, ketamine and a couple of lines of speed instead which made for an interesting experience (That was what I had anyway and apparently I handled it very well, not sure if that's really a compliment or not though!). I've done a bit more cocaine recently and that was definitely stronger than the first time round.

Of the three, in all honestly I'd do cocaine and ketamine again, ketamine was just like getting instantly drunk (Not sure if that was by itself or in combination with everything else though) and cocaine was a different sensation altogether, speed I'd give a miss since all it really did was stop me sleeping for a few days.
