    Yes, Yes I Did.

    Honestly, I love it. I love the way it makes me feel, and the insight I get from it. Its a bit of habit now, but I can;t deny that I love. Hopefully there aren't to many long term effects.

    The Woods Of Atlanta

    We took tablets that had DXM in them and let them disolve under our tounges, then we explored the woods and ended up in a treehouse. The entire time it was okay I felt a little giddy and like things were moving faster than I was. But a few hours latter I started feeling sick and...

    An Unexpected Delight.

    I first encountered DXM when I came home from work and found my boyfriend lying in bed, eyes as wide as saucers. He was completely naked and making strange noises. He looked at me and started making this low vibrating whistle noise, like the sound a space ship would make as it...

    I Wanted to Forget

    It was right after my first boyfriend broke my heart and I couldn't get to sleep because I was so depressed so I chugged nyquil for the next week to get to sleep but then it stopped working so I stopped.

    Just Once...

    I was really sick and couldn't get to sleep. I remember stumbling into my bathroom, opening the medicine cabinet and rifling through its contents. I barely noticed the fact that, in my groping, I'd sent bottles and band-aids crashing onto the counter and floor. It took my a few...

    My First Time With Cough Syrup

    So I took just over half a 5 ounce bottle of Delsym Cough Syrup, straight DXM, just a few hours ago. I read about it a lot and I was told to take about 200-300 mg of it. Well after 20 minutes of waiting I felt nothing so I downed the rest of the bottle, after I did the math it...

    It goes along with how I took handfuls of Tylenol and Excedrin.  I wrote about doing that in my story about how the cops were called to my dorm when I was in college.  I hadn't chugged cough syrup that morning the cops showed up but normally I would do this at the same...

    How to Od On Cough Syrup (and Feel Better In the Process)

     A while back, I came down with a little over 104-temperature fever. It was not so fun (I started hallucinating). Trying to nurse me back to health, my girlfriend (at the time) produced some Nyquil, which I tore out of her hand and started chugging feverishly. Nyquil: the...
