E Comedown trip

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi all

I took my first e around a year ago and really enjoyed it. After going crazy for a while,I now force myself to limit my fun to once a month (hard to resist temptations though!).

Anyway, what has surprised me is the comedown. Although some pills are trippier than others, they all used to cause a 'comedown trip' the first few times I took e. About 3 hours after the last pill, and when firmly (well reasonably!) on earth, I would go into the most unbelievable trip and by that I mean completely incoherent, with hearing and visual hallucinations.

I don't get it anymore as I guess my body/mind is more used to it (same batch of pills so not a rogue batch being the cause) which is a shame as it was great being that utterly mashed! Am I the only one this has ever happened to? I have never heard anyone else mention this.... Just intrigued by it thats all.

Thanx

    I kind of no what u mean, when I first started and used to get mashed Id often feel a bit trippy on my come-down but nothing major. I think a lot of the time it was more the fact I hadnt slept properly for a night or two and the drugs added to that. Lack of sleep can really make u trip out when u take drugs also, Ive always put it down to that but then Ive never been majorly trippy like u seem to have been.

    japers, i have had exactly the same experience when i first started taking them, when it was beddy-boze time i used to go on "a mad un" like yourself! I would trip my head off and still think that i was in the nightclubs! my girlfriend used to hear me having fullblown conversations to myself whilst trying to sleep. As for me i was still dancing away and seeing my mates mentally! so your not alone!!!

    i've had a few trippy comedowns....

    like hearing 2 of my mates saying "mate, don't take those es in public , seriously", and "oh man, are you sure you're alright? you look really fucked up".
    this was in deserted toilets at the end of a night, and i was hearing their exact voices, and while part of me knew it was a trip, part of me really thought they were hiding (even tho there was nowhere to hide) and trying to freak me out.


    and something i get a lot is when walking or in a taxi home, i see flies on the road ahead. and as i get to them they always fly away. its like loadsa flies on the road, and they each fly up away as i get to them. then i can hear the buzz of their wings, and there's gradually more and more of them. they then become birds. there's just a few at first, all flying up as i get to them, but gradually there's more and more, and the flapping of their wings gets really loud......

    i get that trip on all sorts of pills. not sure why. but it's kinda fun.


    oh and i've had where i keep thinking there's people behind me, it's like a presence, and i think i can hear people talking about me, and think i can hear footsteps. and sometimes i can hear a car engine coming towards me. again, even tho i know in my head that it's a trip, this is the scariest one, so i keep walking faster, and keep looking behind me each time i hear them.


    all in the name of fun <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Once after doing some triangle mitsi's I kept seeing people with glasses on. A mate of mine had his shirt off and I could see really detailed fine bright coloured lines all over his body.

    A classic though is closing your eyes thinking your somewhere and then opening them to find you're somwhere completely different.

    lmfao Ive had a thing with glasses b4, thinking people r wearing them when they aint. A common classic has to be sitting on a group of people standing against a wall coz u think they r a sofa...so many people I know have done that lmfao. Or being at a rave and thinking all the empty water bottles covering the floor are mobile fones and picking them up and realising but still doing it lmfao...Ive had that and so has my brother, very funny lol!

    Thanks everyone - Good to see I'm not the only one!

    Sorry to put the boring one on you, but does anyone know why this tripping happens? After all, by the time it kicks in the a lot of the drug has been wee-ed out and metabolised....

    It's not the actual drug that gives you that effect. The drugs simply prompts you're body to release a natural chemical called serotonin. This controls mood, apetite, sleep and loads of other things that's not fully understood yet. I would guess that although the drug may be gone there's still plenty of serotonin wizzing round you're system.

    I've had a long think about this and my personal belief is that the pills you took didn't just contain MDMA as that very rarely causes hallucinations in any format.

    Chemicals which perhaps might have been in the pills you took which would give similar symptoms include:

    * Methyl-2, 5-dimethoxyamphetamine (DOM)
    * 4-bromo-2, 5-dimethoxyamphetamine (DOB)
    * 4-bromo-2, 5-dimethoxyhenethylamine (2C-B)

    2C-B along with the others listed above are hallucinogens similar to LSD...

    Now with regards to it happening at the end when you where coming down all that I can see in my mind is that yes you where coming down from MDMA but the other chemicals were still in effect, 2C-B, I know, lasts for about 8-10 hours and perhaps the reason why you weren't getting any noticable effects earlier was because the MDMA was able to mask the other and as it wore off noticable effects began to appear.

    dunno if this has happened to anybody else, but while on e i was looking for my mate called lee. i walked passed my bathroom and i could clearly see lee looking into the mirror. i carried on walking past and then realised that i had found who i was looking for. i went back into the bathroom and no one was in there. and that was my one and only trip out on e.

    I have often seen people that I know that have not been there it's weird, but it's just your mind playing tricks.

    Thanx for the replies, definitely interesting and informative!

    As for seeing people, when I'm really rushing in a club I think that faces of random people in the club are my mates or recognise them as people from somewhere in my memory, even from several years back! Once I blink its all over for a few seconds and off I go into dreamworld again.... Oh, and the strobing effects!

    On my comedowns it all starts with hearing hallucinations, imagine listening to 'bye bye miss american pie' but sung with the lyrics of any other song that springs to mind - hysterical!
