Worst Alcohol/Drug Story?
Posted 5/5/15 , edited 5/5/15
I feel like CR is a very open community so I'm curious to see if anyone is willing to share any terrible experiences with alcohol or drugs (I know alcohol is a drug, but I'm separating it this way for clarification and organizational purposes). The ones that made you go "Nope, never again."

Mine was when...


tl;dr: got way too high during winter break from university, couldn't speak or move my body, thought I was dying. Never again.

I know someone who was heavily addicted to crystal meth as a way to self medicate against PTSD. They killed themselves.

My own personal alcohol story was the morning I woke up with no memory of a mess function. but with bruised knuckles and lectures in the mess about cocking off to higher ranks. I'm normally a rather mild and self-effacing person. Not only do I excercise caution when drinking but I've never touch Rye whiskey since.

I cannot crossfade. Luckily I was hanging out with my brother and when I went into a panic I fell back, hit my head on cement. He called us a cab because I could not walk.

On top of that I drove to work the next day. Big mistake I literally had a cut on my head an an egg sized lump. Probably a concussion as well. Everyone enjoys their vices. I cannot mix the two in great amounts. Just cocktails mostly.

So even though I was embarrassed in front of two strangers and my brother it was enough that I lost control to bother me. I pride myself in self control you see.....Now I just take it easy and try not to get too crazy. You'll scare yourself.

My brother once tried to get high of codeine in cough syrup. Problem is the cough syrup had laxatives in it so he ended up nearly shitting himself. Kinda funny but that stuff can be dangerous.

I went to a party with my best friend and there was literally a table dedicated to hard liquor. Vodka, fireball, whisky, tequila everything. I was young at the time and I was like OH MY GOD THIS IS SO COOL I"M GOING TO GET PLASTERED! So of course I didn't have any tact and just went full blast drinking. So the party was held in a room that was made of concrete. Literally made of concrete. So I was drinking and I think I was drinking so fast that the effects were not catching up to me so I didn't feel drunk at first. So about an hour into the party I had consumed: 2 glasses of red wine, half a cup of tequila, a vodka jello shot, a shot of tequila, and four shots of fireball. So i was standing up talking to my friend after my last shot of fireball and I was fine and then all of a sudden I felt like this darkness come over me. The last thing I remembered was a hand coming at me from the darkness. Then after some time I woke up on the floor, i had no idea where I was , what time it was or what had even happened. To make matters worse I had been throwing up in my sleep. Later from my friend I found out that i had hit my head on the table and gained this gnarly bruise on my upper lip that hurt like hell. I probably had a concussion and to make matters worse I had thrown up all over her mom's car. AND i wear wigs so my wig had come off some time during that night which was GAH embarrassing In all actuality I should have been dead, people have definitely died from less. So i took this experience as a reminder of my mortality and fragility as a human and that i shouldn't drink that much EVER again because literally the hang over was like being dead.

Went to my friends house got extremely wasted and went to Whataburger with him and another one of my friends.(Note I was blackout drunk at this time) We sat down at a table and I decided to randomly decided to explain the game P.T to them by telling it to them from a first person perspective apparently got stuck on the part with the baby, and was making baby noises for apparently 5 minutes straight, went back to his house went to the bathroom decided to throw up in the bathtub even though I could of easily threw up in the toilet.

went back to my friend and told him, "I threw up in the bathroom." He responded, "where in the bathroom?" I replied,"In the bathroom" "No Ben where in the bathroom?" "You know in the bathroom." this time I made hand gestures trying to explain the bathtub. Needless to say this went on for some time until we both walked in the bathroom to which he asked me to clean it up, being as drunk as I was I couldn't do it by myself we both cleaned up the bathroom... I think. I was driven home and crashed out on my bed. woke up next day with a terrible hangover with very little knowledge of what happened. Fun times

Haven't drank or used in decades. All I'll say is neither mixes well with fire arms.

A few years back on our yearly camping trip we go on, one guy decided to bring an eighth of shrooms. Took em just at dusk after dinner, went around on a night hike without a map or compass, ended up getting lost to a small degree, luckily it was warm. Finally made it back to camp and someone's bright idea oh hey lets take some more while already trippin hard...Next thing i know i ended up back in my hammock, apparently my brain wouldn't, I kept yelling shut the front door, chasing the white rabbit and here we go again...weee!, after a while i couldnt figure out where the hell i was, alive or dead, limbo.

While i wouldn't do as much as i did last time i would probably do it again for the minor effects alone, the gigglefest for reason was a blast.

Needless to say we tripped for like 6 hours straight, it wasn't the most pleasent experience and the next couple nights I really had a hard time sleeping, strange nightmares and dreams...yeah.

I typically have very positive things to say about semi-thoughtful use of drugs. Start on the low end, don't mix too casually, do your homework and study the effects and dosages, be prepared in case of emergencies.

One of my worst experiences was when I took 4 or 5 pressed pills, a molly, and ate a special brownie. I had been drinking energy drinks and alcohol as well, when we were clubbing. I ended up hugging a speaker at a house party for 3 hours since the music was magnetic. I felt like I was part of the music and I couldn't move. I was also periodically lapsing in and out of consciousness. I could hear people speaking but I could not hear what they were saying since their voices were garbled. Only one of my friends' voices was distinct and cut through everything whenever he spoke, and that kept me tethered to my consciousness.

I usually only take 1 or 2, so this dose of dirty, strong pills really did me in. I spent the next two days extremely depressed and unable to sleep. This is the only time I had a comedown. It was awful.

Oh yeah just remembered mine. Throughout my grad school years I would Adderall for my ADD. I was a small kid and this left me staying up all night cause of the effects of the Adderall. My sleep schedule was fucked for years.

Mine is kinda similar to yours Koala.
So I was working with my friend at Subway. Just us two. We were both 19. My friend at the time was going through his pot phase. collecting glass, etc. He had this one hitter that we'd usually take turns hitting inside the freezer. Now...i'm not a frequent pot smoker but I do partake on the occasion when somebody offers it to me, never excessively though. That night, after we closed, he busted out this joint he rolled and asked if I wanted to smoke it with him at the park. I thought about it and decided maybe a just a small hit. I still had to drive home after all so I didn't want to overdo it.
So fast forward to the park. My friend hands me the joint and gave me a lighter. I lit that bby up. As I was taking the "hit", I felt my body getting light. The euphoric feeling was setting in. Then I heard my friend's voice come into focus, "Dude, you're gonna smoke the whole thing...". I looked down and I saw that my "hit" ended up being 3/4 of the joint. At that point, I was pretty stoned. I just said, "oh...shit...". My friend smoked the rest and we just talked for a bit and laughed like idiots. It was around 12AM when I decided it was time to head home. I got up and started walking...sideways...I ran into a tree. That's when it hit me, I have to drive home...and that's when I got a panic attack and started tripping. Balls.
I stepped into my car. "I had to get myself and the car home.", I thought. At that point, I could hear my heart beating through my ears as if there were taiko drummers playing with my head. I felt my eyes move but my vision took a second to catch up. I saw the streetlights through my long exposure camera lens eyes. The dots and trails scattered around in my brain. I couldn't think straight at all. Everything felt so visceral it was overwhelming. I talked to my friend about what we should do. He said he'll drive behind me and honk if I veer off. He also suggested to use cruise control and etc. I took his advice, revved up the engine, and prepared for a journey. The whole time, those taiko drummers were playing away. As I started driving, the streetlights became stars and the stars became galaxies. At one point, I thought I could even see ultraviolet. We got to this stoplight and I turned to my right to see my friend nodding at me with a huge smile and holding up a thumbs up that probably symbolized a, "You got this, man!". I just thought, "Fuq." as he drove away on the green.
From that point on, I was alone. As I got closer to my house, there was one more boss to defeat. The park before my community always featured police parked in the dark, catching late night speeders. As I got closer, I felt my heart beat accelerate. Every second felt worse than before. At one point, I thought my heart was going to implode on itself as if it were a dying star. Seeing the imploding heart in my mind didn't help either. When I passed the park, the sensations didn't subside. I opened the garage and laid on my bed all spun out and stared at the "ultraviolet lights" raining down from my fan.
I thought maybe a shower might help get the blood flowing and maybe process some of the chemicals quicker. I messed with my pants for thirty minutes before they came off. I got out of the shower and took another 30 to get dressed. Afterwards, I just crashed on my bed. My body probably screamed sleep after all that adrenaline from the panic attacks. The next couple weeks, I still felt slightly stoned. I'm pretty sure I might've lost some brain cells coming out of that but i'm also thankful nothing serious happened ie. car accident or getting caught by the police, etc.
Intense experience. 10/10 would not recommend.

I have never drunk beer, done drugs, or smoked a cigarette.
That's a terrifying story.

The depression I got that was likely from them sucked, and the throbbing headaches and stomachaches from stopping were just about as bad. I really don't want to again.
