My Salvia Trip

October 28, 2015

I tried Salvia for the first time on August 14th. I was at a mutual friends house, and a friend of mine had some Salvia that he got from a smoke shop for free, since Salvia is now illegal. I always wondered what it would be like to try it and I always kind of wanted to try it, but I’ve heard stories and watched videos and I was really scared to try it. It took me over twenty minutes to agree to try it. I was the only one who was going to do it because everyone else already had before and there was only enough left for one person. So we packed the bong and I took a rip and held it in for about thirty seconds, give or take a few. I remember that my friend was telling me to hold it in until it kind of burned. I held it in as long as I could and then i exhaled…

Immediately after exhaling I felt the trip. At first I was laughing, just for no apparent reason, and I was having a good time. But then, I just went into a completely different world. My eyes were wide open the whole time, and I appeared to be looking at my friends straight in the eyes but I felt like I couldn’t see the reality through my own eyes because I was in a dream world. I bit my lip and it felt like my bottom lip consisted of “Lego’s”. After that my whole body felt like “Lego’s” and the couch I was sitting on just disappeared. Then I thought that there was something falling out of my mouth, and that if i didn’t catch it and put it back in my mouth, I was going to die. I started digging in my mouth trying to find the objects that I needed so badly. I was searching everywhere, and then when I couldn’t find the objects, I started to get distressed.

When I started to come down from my trip, I could halfway see reality, and I saw two of my friends faces, but they automatically turned into “Lego’s”. I got a sinking feeling, I felt like I was sinking into the couch, and I felt like my “Lego’s” weren’t connecting right and that there was something wrong with me and I honestly thought I was going to die. I started yelling at my friends, telling them to shut up and stop talking. When the trip was almost over, I just about broke into tears, and all I could think was, “I just want to go home! I just want to get out of here!”

After my trip was completely over, I felt a lot better, and I realized that I must have psyched myself out and brought the bad trip on myself. I was so nervous before I took a hit. I wasn’t in the right mindset, and I think if I was in a better mindset, it would have been a lot better. Even later that day I looked back and watched the video’s and laughed at myself. It was still a good experience and i felt really really good afterwords. i’m not sure if i would do it again, but there’s a chance. I’d like to let myself actually have a good trip! 🙂
