I Lost My Pets and Almost Burned the House Down – A Datura Trip Report

I Lost My Pets and Almost Burned the House Down trip report from the Datura vault of Erowid.

I am in my mid-30s and have tried many different things in my time lsd messaline mushrooms etc i would call myself experience with hallucigenic which were always fun for me especially when i was younger this experience was not one of those times i must mention that i was trying to make a very light dose just to see what the effects would be i did not intend to

Become incapacitated although i tried to document my experience exactly i soon realized this was an impossibility here is what i do know 11 am i boiled exactly 10 leaves about 6 to 8 inches long and 8 cups of water for 10 minutes this was the first time with this plant and i didn’t want to overdo it i took it off the burner and let it steep for a few minutes as

That was cooling i made a picture of really sweet tea from a concentrated dry tea mix then i filled a 20 ounce glass with ice and filled the cup halfway with tea i then filled the rest of the glass with the leaf brew i ended up using only about six to eight ounces of the brew 11 30 am i drank the tea all at once it tasted quite nasty even though it was heavily

Sweetened it only took me a few minutes i then removed the leaves from the pot threw them away and the pot with the remaining brew back on the stove 11 45 am i started to wonder if i had enough then thought it a good idea to make another class so i did exactly as before and drank it quickly as well this time i noticed it was a little hard to get down though

Almost like my throat was closing up making me feel like i was choking i started to walk back to the couch and realized i felt funny like my body was drunk but my mind perfectly coherent from this point on i cannot tell you the exact timing of anything else because although i didn’t realize it yet i lost track of all time and reality 12 ish maybe ah i

Am totally wasted i am sitting on the couch and noticed things are really strange corners of the walls turning into spider webs very blurry vision i was watching tv but realized i can’t really see it anymore or understand what they’re saying i forgot to mention i was alone for now my wife and daughter were due back late that afternoon more on that later i

Never intended to be this messed up so i decided to get up off the couch and go to the bathroom i realized then that it would take every effort almost herculean strength just to get off the couch finally i got up off the couch and stumbled to the bathroom and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror oh my god the first thing i noticed was that my eyes were

Completely dilated then i looked down at my hands i had a hard time focusing but when i finally did i realize they were beat red i mean red worse than the worst sunburn you have ever seen i looked back up at my face in the mirror and i finally came into focus again i realized my face looked the same now i am freaking my whole body was red from head to toe i

Need to mention at this point that i still felt like i was still there mentally all i noticed were these physical problems completely dilated pupils inability to focus beat red skin i decided that i had better try to puke up whatever i could so i tried only a little came up more like an acid reflux type thing except now i have a bigger problem my throat is

Closing up breathing was difficult and i had a dry mouth like never before no amount of water would satisfy and every time i tried to drink it felt like i was going to choke i must mention that although i thought at the time my mind was still rational i realized later that i was far from rational even still i calmly even though i felt i was dying went to my

Computer to look up websites to try to find out if there was a way to reverse the effects i was having somehow i made it to a site i think but then realized i couldn’t read it every word on the page was gibberish it didn’t make any sense i knew the answer was somewhere but i couldn’t find it looking back i estimate i spent hours on the computer staring blindly

At the screen at the time i thought it was minutes i went outside to smoke a cig and realized i couldn’t see anything outside it was way too bright so i came back in quickly i then thought of how up i was and that i need to warn my daughter of the danger of this drug she’s 12. i went into her room and started to lecture her about the dangers of drugs and to

Never try and pick good friends and so on i remember thinking how could she has been she sat quietly and listened to me intent when i thought i made my point i got up to leave and realized she left the room i was pissed how could she just walk away like that i went out to the living room to complain and realized she wasn’t there nobody was there i was still

Alone i remember feeling at that point like i am in trouble what have i been doing i must note that i still had all the symptoms i had earlier the most troubling being i stumbled everywhere i went my body was still beat red and i choked every time i tried to drink something i wondered how long it had been i don’t remember exactly what time it was when i looked

Out but i did realize it was a lot longer than i thought i recall thinking my family would be home soon i realized later i lost several hours doing what i don’t know then they came home suddenly there she was my wife and boy did she look pissed after what happened earlier though i didn’t believe it was actually her this part of the story is now her recollection

Of what she came home to she is a paramedic by the way too she said she came home opened the front door and smoke came pouring out of the house she ran to notice that the stove was on fire that i was just standing there looking off into space she was screaming at me what the hell is wrong with you i remember saying nothing is wrong but she says i was mumbling

Something about she needed to get off my back and go to bed then i saw my daughter run by and thought what was wrong with her i didn’t realize then but she was scared shitless about what was going on then they left or had they even been there i wondered oh i think i’ll go have a smoke then what seemed like a few minutes actually hours they came back we have

Pets by the way too three dogs and a cat when they came home the second time all the animals were gone and the door was wide open now she’s really pissed she screams to me about almost burning the house down and now all the pets are gone i told her she was nuts and to get off my back then they both left again damn i thought were they even there i spent the

Rest of the night on the computer mostly just staring at the monitor i woke up the next morning on the couch and had a talk with my wife i still felt funny but the worst was over so this is what really happened my wife and daughter came home about 5 30 pm to find the stove on fire she put out the fire i must have taken the leaves out of the garbage and tried to

Make some tea the stove was scorched i think i drank more tea but can’t be certain she drilled me about what was going on she said i wouldn’t tell her and kept telling her everything is cool she asked me repeatedly what i was on but i wouldn’t tell her she didn’t realize i was as bad off as i was she was madder than anything so she and my daughter took off and

Came back at about 8 30 p.m she found me on the computer and screamed this time saying i lost the pets i could go on and on with more details but i don’t want to miss the point i could have burned to death in this house i could have choked to death heart attack heart was racing too i could have easily died those things didn’t happen but i will tell you what

Did it has been two months since this happened and i’m still not the same i hate to say it’s permanent i hope not but truth is i screwed myself up my throat is partially closed i have trouble breathing when i sleep i cough up liquids sometimes because it tries to go down my windpipe i still see that is not there but worst of all is my brain i can’t maintain

My thoughts i am a writer but i can’t focus anymore it took me forever to write this you
