and then I slowly started to try ecstasy, lsd and mushrooms.

As I’ve become a bit older, It’s more of an escape from a stressful week at work, or if I’m feeling like I need a lift. It has become a bit of a spiral and I do find it hard to go out on a weekend without taking anything, but it’s my way of escaping. B. 28

BAD TRIP


VOICES


After a heavy night on 2bc, I suffer from seriously bad paranoia, I feel as though everyone is talking about me which in turn makes me cry. My emotions go from high to low in an instant.

I’ve had more bad trips than good. I’ve had times where I’m walking and feel as though I’m walking so fast, and I turn around and see I haven’t hardly moved at all. It feels like you’re on a treadmill and you re not getting anywhere. It seems funny, but at the time you feel frustrated and scared. E. 21


DEPRESSION


TRIP


When I took mushrooms, I was with my brother and sister. I started to panic and I became anxious. I felt sick and disorientated. Then my brother and sisters heads turned into dogs. I then had a fit and woke up not knowing what had happened. M. 18


I had some dodgy mdma at a party once. I never hallucinate on md but I kept seeing this guy walking around with cuts on his face, I wasn’t sure if it was a hallucination or if it was real. I couldn’t understand why nobody was reacting to the cuts all over his face and arms. To this day I still don’t know if it was real or not.
