A 2nd plateau experience

21 yr. Male
4 oz. Robitussin Max Strength Cough (15 mg/mL)
120 lbs.

I first discovered DXM about a year ago, and tripped about 6 times. A few weekends ago, I decided to trip again, the first time since August. I stuffed my nostrils with cotton balls to avoid the unpleasant taste and proceeded to chug the entire 4 oz, immediately brushing my teeth after. I sat down and listened to music waiting for the trip to begin. About 40 minutes later, I noticed the familiar feelings, and decided to walk around the apartment and see what my roomates were doing. I joined in a game of Madden '98 on the Playstation, but soon found it too difficult to concentrate and I began to feel sympathy for the players who got tackled. The driving game, Need For Speed II proved to be more enjoyable, I got completely involved in it, especially when I started to crash on purpose. We ventured over to a friends party, and I smoked a little pot to increase the affects. I ended up having flashbacks, sort of confusing this trip with previous ones, and decided it was best to sit on the couch for awhile. I felt the couch begin to undulate, kind of a rolling wave sort of motion and noticed the walls and ceiling didn't meet at a 90 degree angle. I pointed this out to a friend, who had no idea what I was talking about. Eventually someone walked me back to my place, as I was starting to feel kind of nervous being around so many strangers. I put Pink Floyd's Ummagumma on to listen to and played with glow in the dark Silly Putty. I ended up falling asleep a short while later, dreaming about crazy landscapes and smurfs. No hungover feeling the next day, and it was one of the better trips since I didn't puke or feel like I had too. A word of advice to those thinking about doing DXM, DO NOT combine it with alcohol, unless you enjoy puking and shitting your brains out for an extended period of time. I enjoy the times I've had on DXM, but just beware of its dark side and treat it accordingly.
