It’s not an attempt to boast or to be proud of, but I wanted to test myself by experiencing drugs. No, it didn’t happen in Malaysia but in Buffalo New York in 2001, where my friend hooked me up with different drugs in a space of 24 hours, free simply because she knew the pusher!
I remember myself sitting in the attic of this rundown house that my friend and her pals rented, and you can smell weed everywhere. I didn’t plan for this experience to happen but decided at the spur of the moment.
I started by drinking a cap of G (apparently similar to weedkiller) before moving on to weed. Then I experienced my “favorite” drug off them all, but mind you, I never touched drugs since that day in 2001 – Ketamine. I had 5 snorts of it – and apparently it’s Horse tranquilizer cut with Vitamin B.
I remember the 3rd snort of the Ketamine took place in a ladies restroom at a local gay club! Yes, a gay club! No, I’m not gay, and neither is my friend, but she said they played good music and we were so high that we all just agreed in unison.
It didn’t stop there, I then took 1.5 ecstasy pills (I threw half of it away because I felt I had enough). We came out of another club shortly after 8am, to the sound of the police siren, shooing all clubbers away. We then drove to McDonald’s for breakfast and then picked up a LSD known as the Butterfly pill and I had a 70s experience with all the colors illuminating and melting through my vision. It was crazy.
Shortly around 10am, my body started to tremble as it goes into post-drug use effect. A few of my friends were telling me I should smoke weed to calm it down, but I’ve already made up my mind to draw the line. And I drew it with vigor. Full stop. Enough. No more. I’m done.
I couldn’t batter my eyelids for the next 14 hours, it just wouldn’t blink on its own, nor close as it kept opening. I had to battle another couple of hours before I can finally get some sleep to detoxify.
A day later, I met up with another friend who picked me up and when I was chilling at her place, I told her my experience and she said I would’ve easily overdosed. Yikes! Although it was an interesting experience, I will never experience it again.
The interesting thing is, I was never out of touch with reality during the 24 hours. Just felt really high like I’ve consumed a bottle of whiskey.
