ketamine: my experience
I find myself deep in a k-hole - and it's not a good trip

I'm not really into disassociative drugs but had enjoyed the few little K bumps I tried over the years. Mild, dreamy and a bit like nitrous. I could see the appeal.

However, after a long night partying at a festival on the weekend, I did what I thought was a moderate bump (I think I miscalculated a bit here!) and ended up in the deepest darkest k hole I could imagine.

I had the most intense hallucinations I've ever had out of all the drugs I've tried. I was about as far out there as I imagine you can go.

In my mind, I was busy boldly exploring the fucking craziest worlds I'd ever seen for days on end, but it seems it was more like 40 minutes face down in a field.

I wasn't expecting this to be happening so it was a fucking weird time. At first I went along with it because the visuals were so astonishingly wild (think: World of Tron with unbelievable colours and shifting patterns) but then time seemed to go on forever. My universe was turned upside down.

I thought the normal world had disappeared forever and I REALLY thought I had died. I tried to reach my girlfriend in whatever fucking universe I was floating about in and got really upset because I thought I'd never see her again.

The last part (probably 3 minutes, but more like 5 hours in my mind) was a living hell. I couldn't get out.

It took me ages to eventually crawl out from this dystopic nightmare and I couldn't manage to even walk a few feet without assistance for some time after. And I hate being that munted person wobbling about in public. And to round it all off, I was horribly sick as soon as I made it back to the tent to find a really worried girlfriend.

It really wasn't a good time, and it's taken several months for the bad memories and flashback to subside.

Ultimately, my downfall came from me not paying enough attention to the dose. And falling into a k hole without being prepared for it not a nice experience - especially when it's your first time.

Never again for me.
