    Hey, about 3 months ago I took 1 etizolam in the evening... The next morning I took 0.15 mg of noonpept, in that evening I took another 2 etizolam and went to sleep. The next morning I took another 0.15 mg of noonpept (I was working on Coursework for school at the the time) In the evening I drove over to a friends with some weed and smoked a joint with him... I was completely fine, other than being high. When I got home I watched a film then decided I'd smoke another joint before bed.

    I smoked the joint and 15 minutes later I thought I was going to die. My heart was going crazy (i.e fast beating and arrhythmia) My brain was telling me I was about to die and I couldn't sleep because my lower body was spasming and my head was jibbing out. It also felt as if I had to manually breath.

    I havent smoked weed since and for the initial month and a half afterwards I'd suffer from occasional panic and heart arrhythmia. I have gone back to work now and feel fine. I recently started drinking again and going clubbing with friends and have had no issues. But I haven't smoked weed or tobacco since as I am too afraid it would trigger what happened last time. I have also stayed well clear of any other chemicals including zolam's and nootropics.

    You know the saying "bite more than you can chew"? That is what happened to you, I think. You should consult a professional doctor though, you may have some problems that you don't know about.

    Yes, in fact maybe I did bit more that I could chew. I should have gone to a doctor, you're right. I was in such a shock back then all I was focusing on was not dying and getting rid of the spasming and that kept me from sleeping all the pain away.

    I think, that sometimes people can feel that they are alright and also don't need to get away from the drugs as it is giving them a good experience as well and won't do anything to them. I have seen some close ones, who are trying to think that the drug is their friend and real close to it and don't think what they are doing. I also think, that being around the people who are really your friends and will lead you the right path is important as well.

    I remember my first drug experience. I told my boyfriend at the time I didn't understand why there are so many people who enjoy smoking weed and I was curious to know what it felt like so he got me some to try with him. I hallucinated so bad and had sever shakes half an hour later after trying it. I have no idea if this was normal for a first timer but I can say I have never done it again since. It scared the crap out of me.

    Consider what happened to you as a blessing in disguise because if you didn't feel those symptoms who knows, maybe you could have gone addicted to those drugs. It was a rough way to learn a lesson but at least you did and would never go back to trying any addictive substance anymore.

    Gracer has a point, It is a good thing that you felt that way in your first experience of the drug, but you just felt that way, no one has died from Marijuana use. Actually, in order for a person to die from Marijuana use they have to take 40,000 times the normal amount.

    xSentaru, run, run, run like the wind away from ever using those drugs again! You have been given a rare gift in the experience that you had! If I could go back ten years in time, I think I would have chopped off one of my hands to have had that happen to me. Perhaps I would not have had to travel down such a difficult road and lay waste to everything and everyone around me. Use your negative experience to make wonderful things happen in your life. Trust me... the road of addiction is not a fate that I would wish on my worst enemy. I know you will do positive wonderful things in your life... I believe in you!

    It's good that you realize it as a problem. Surely, that is far from enough but it's a good start. Of course, the best thing would be if you can not do such a thing ever again. However, if you find that you can't resist it, don't hesitate to seek professional help for a second... The earlier, the better!

    I'm curious... Could it have been an allergic reaction? Or is it possible that it could have been spiked with some kind of speed. Either way, your better of without it.

    The problem there is about expectations. You were expecting unknown results which you never got. You wanted to get high but with no reason. Were you avoiding stressful moments? Then what made you try them out! Drugs can never help in any situation.

    My first drug experience was with cigarettes even though I never smoked them I was a victim to second hand smoke, at the time I was living with my family on my mother's side and alomst everyone did/smoked something, so most of the house was fill with smoke and since I was born with asthma and I didn't know what would trigger it didn't help... So at first it was quite nice and fuzzy, but as the smoke settled in my lungs, the more it felt like they were burning, so I started coughing... At first it started out small but the more I was there the worse it became to the point where it felt like I was dying and crying because I couldn't see from the lack of oxygen... If I never had my inhaler or my super strong sister to rush me out of there as quickly as she did i probably would have died and no one would have givin' two craps about me...

    I too have asthma and have some family members that smoke. Thank goodness it's no one in my household. I have learned to just steer clear of them when they are smoking. It's not like I can tell people what to do with themselves. And if they question why I'm suddenly don't want to be near them I just tell them the truth and wait for for them to stop smoking.

    I doubt the weed was the problem, you were doing too much. All those other drugs you were taking is what probably caused all those side effects. Mixing too many things together is a bad idea. I think you should give your body a chance to detox for a while. You have to slow down with all the different things your doing.

    @xSentaru Hello and thank you for sharing your story in this forum! Since you had experienced already your first drug experience you must realized that it will not do anything good for your life. While it is still early there is still a chance that you can change your life for the better. Right now staying away from drugs will save your health and your life as a whole. Life is beautiful and you must not waste your life doing non sense things and you must learn how to enjoy life! :)

    Good to know that you have managed to be fine or survived such experience. Sometimes lessons are learned the hard way and good thing that you are not using those substances again. It will help others as well to be aware of the dangers of those substances.

    Well I think that should serve as a lesson for you to not mess with drugs or prescription pills anymore because that was a close call for you, right? I'm glad that you have finally decided to stay away from those substances and you just drink nowadays. Just remember to not overdo drinking ok? I wish you all the best!

    This is some story. You don't need this stuff. Maybe you scared yourself enough. Close call to think about that now you can make better choices. Clubbing is fine. You just need to use your head. Dance and have fun socializing. Save the drinking for when you are home if you can. Its way easier to just go from your living room to the bed than it is to be out that way. Its not always safe. Better to keep your wits about you. Its just not worth it. You can have get togethers at home or just a few friends.

    I think it was too much and not just the weed. You are best to stay away from it all after a reaction like that. Another scary thing was that you drove to your friend's house and back home. You never should have been operating a motor vehicle in the condition you were in. I hope this was a lesson learned and something you will continue to avoid. You don't need it.

    Well, I don't think I would be doping at all after an experience like that. I have ocassionally had bad reactions to prescription medicine. So, I am hesitant to do something like that. However, you have to do what you are comfortable with.
