|02:38 pm - dxm|
so my friend chris from work was going to trip with his friends last night, and he invited me along. they were using dxm, which is in some cough medicines (robotussin and sucrets for example). he advised me to go with teh sucrets (losenges) cuz it's nasty drinking a bottle of cough syrup (not that swallowing 18 cough losenges is so much fun).
i'll mention at this point that chris knows more about drugs than probably anyone i've met, and he doenst screw around. of all the drugs he's researched, there's only like 3 he'll do cuz the others he considers too dangerous and/or addictive (alcohol is on the no list, for example). so he said this was safe adn i trust him it was
anyway, long story short, it turns out the sucrets didnt have enough dxm to have much any effect beyond make me feel just slightly swimmy. the syrup definitely wouldve done the trick, there's like 4 or 5 times more dxm in there. cept that my stomach reacted rather badly to them, and i threw up twice and was nausious most of the night. so takign the syrup would be even worse (chris, who didnt get much effect from them either but wasnt nausious, was trying these cuz when he used the syrup last time he threw up. so for me it'd probly be pretty nasty)
so that's my exciting drug story. i have now tried pot and dxm and neither did a damn thing. no fun
(if you were wondering, this entry is freinds-only cuz my dad occasionally reads this, and he is extremely anti-drugs  and would not be happy with me)
 i've pointed out to him before that his stance (which from what i can tell, is that any amount of any drug is terrible and will destroy your life) is hypocritical from someone who drinks (not a lot, but taht's besides the point). i forget what his response was, but it wasnt terribly enlightening
by the way, i don't know how all of you feel about such things. feel free to say whatever to me on the subject, should you feel the need, but no ranting please

I can't say anything. I was a 13 year old Ritalin addict. It was perscribed, but that doesn't make it any different. Ritalin withdrawl was hell. Well... so was the addiction.
ritalin's addictive? craptacular..
the first time i did dxm it was the cough syrup, but i didn chug it all at once like i was supposed to. i sipped the bottle for like an hour so it metabolized faster than it should have and i just fell asleep. the second time i took the robotussion gel caps and oh my god, an hour into it i threw up like you wouldnt believe, then 1/2 hour later it hit me like WHAM and i swear to god it felt like that night lasted three months. somehow i was stuck inside my head and my mind was spinning in circles and there was this one open door and if i could just get my mind lined up with me and RUN through it i could get out of my head. trust me this all made sense at the time.
oh and it was definitely NOT fun at all. although jaco said he loved it. but of all the drugs i ever did that was one of the messiest uncontrolled fucked up intense feelings ever.
you friends are retarded with the sucrets though. no wonder you threw up. too much filler. what you need to do is get the maximum strength robotussin. make sure thats all it says on the bottle. no cough and cold, nothing like that. look at the ingredients and make the only active in there is dextromethorphan...NO guafenisin and NO psuedophedrine. thats another reason they threw up so much.
oh god, i know too much about this. dont mind me :)
well jeez, now i know who to go to about this stuff.
but the sucrets dont have either of those.. just the dextroblahlah (i just checked, i still have the lil plastic case they came in)
yeah...... i'm with your dad on this one... i'm not down with the drugs...
but hey have a good time.
it's not something i plan to make a habit of, i just wanted to try it.
if you dont mind, i've been wondering.. why are you so straightedge?

wow.. hee, i never imagined you doing that. wanna huff some markers too? ;) stop reminding me that we failed to get you high, i feel bad about that. it was cute watching you try to light a pipe tho.. heh.
why did you never imagine me doin that?
notsofun fact: more than half of people who trying huffing (probly not markers, but like paint cans and crap) die their 1st time
apparently i am invincible to drug-effects, so dont feel bad about it..
did i ever get that pipe right? i think i had to have someone do it for me every time, i kept lighting myself
this is so anti dan's image.... i would have never pictured you doing any sort of drugs besides alcohol, and becoming a raging alcoholic and beating your wife and kids with a strand of spaghetti or something...
feel free to say whatever to me on the subject,
< begin lecture >
I thought doing drugstore drugs was something junior high school kids did. Uhhhh..*scratches head* I don't know how to say this, but if you want to get high, why don't you just buy the stuff that's illegal (as if overdosing yourself with Robitussin is legal, which I *guess* it is, right up til you almost kill yourself then they either bury you or commit you for attempting suicide)
Why pretend you're worried about what you put in your body (I guess stuff such as alcohol, illegal pills and whatnot) when you dose yourself with all kinds of stupid additives like menthol, coloring, pseudo..aspirin etc anyway.
I've done my heavy duty share of drugs and "back in the day," we used *real* drugs, not the supermarket-Cucumberland crap you kids today use. Next thing you know, you'll be hitting the whipped cream cans over in aisle 6. That's somehow Better???
If you really want to get high/trip/speed, go to someone reputable (it's easy to find out who they are,) buy what you need and get yourself a safe environment to try it out.

I have tried this in my mis-spent youth. I got Robotussin DM extra strength, and a huge container, poured the Robo in and then filled the rest up with water. It was still gross, but a lot less so (I tried a bit straight first). It came on all at once, and the window I was looking at developed bubbles, like in bubblebath. =) The feeling was similar to being drunk, with some visual hallucinations thrown in.
I have had several drug experiences... Robo'ing was not as much fun as others, but then it wasn't as horrible as your experience. As for pot, try a water pipe next time. As for "legal" highs, they tend not to be worth the effort and strife. As for illegal drugs, as Mad said, find someone reputable... I won't recommend anything here though. =)

Out of curiosity, what are the others he considers safe?
Out of the ones I've done, I'd recommend staying away from cocaine (or crystal meth oor anything else you snort, really). Damn good feeling, but addictive as hell. Seeing things like that mountain of coke in The Crow still makes me crave it, and I haven't done it in over two years.
Ecstacy kind of depends on the person. There is no greater feeling than rolling, but there are few things worse than how you feel the next day (except how you feel the day after dropping acid). Some people want to do it all the time, some just every now and then (but I'm fairly certain anyone who's ever done it wants to do it again). This is one that needs to come from a reputable source, though, because there's a lot of fake crap out there that just doesn't do much. But I think the world would be a much better place if everyone did it at least once. For first time use, I suggest you only do it with people you trust - you're going to tell everyone how much you love them and probably share a few secrets. Hugging is unavoidable. :)
Okay, I'm rambling now and I need to get out of here to get to the bank before they close.
the other two are ecstacy and lsd
