Introduction

This is my first time taking 4-ACO-DET and I was a bit nervous not knowing what to expect. My friend and I played video games most of the time, starting with Tetris Attack on the SNES while we waited for the drug to come up.

Description

This drug was very similar to shrooms and LSD. It first started adopting shroom-like qualities and at the peak turned more into an LSD feeling. I was genuinely surprised with how good the body high felt. I never once felt too uncomfortable, minus a few times where I was getting too warm or too cold. We specifically took a threshold dose the first time to dip our toes in, but we plan on revisiting this drug in the coming weeks at progressively higher doses. I greatly enjoyed the entire experience at this level and can recommend it to anyone that wants a trip similar to shrooms or LSD but doesn’t want to commit more than 4-5 hours to it.

Onset

Onset
4:28pm:

I dosed 25mg orally in a gel capsule with my friend.

4:53pm:

I’m feeling dissociated and getting mild focus suppression. It starts to make Tetris Attack a little harder to focus on, but I still manage to keep playing just fine.

4:57pm:

I start feeling very mild tactile enhancement alongside some body numbing, specifically on my feet. It starts feeling really euphoric to touch my cold feet to other warm parts of my body.

5:11pm:

It’s starting to get slightly harder to focus on the game. I’m having trouble coming up with the correct words to describe things as I start feeling cognitive suppression.

5:25pm:

I’m still not really feeling much at all, surprisingly. I usually come up on drugs very quickly and am surprised I’m not tripping harder at this point. I was worried this dosage may not be enough.

5:50pm:

I start taking some nitrous hits to potentiate any effects.

Peak

Peak
5:53pm:

The high starts hitting my friend and I very suddenly. I’m getting very mild geometry when I close my eyes and in my peripherals. Pattern recognition enhancement starts to kick in and I notice textures on surfaces much more easily than I was before.

6:00pm:

I’m even more distractible at this point and the dissociation is getting stronger. I see Tetris Attack when I close my eyes, made up of neon borders. They start to drift back and forth, spiral, and it all seemingly gets sucked into a vortex at the center of my internal vision.

6:05pm:

This high feels very reminiscent of shrooms. I get a very similar mouth/throat feeling to the one I experience when I’m coming up on LSD or shrooms. My hands are starting to get shaky, as well as my vision. My peripherals look like they have a black vignette that keeps flashing or “shaking”.

6:10pm:

I’m getting very sensitive to lights and can see light sources flickering, specifically the TV. I’m getting very mild colour enhancement and start seeing drifting colors on defined edges of objects and shadows. My hands begin to get clammy and sweaty. I’m getting chromatic aberration on every object I look at.

6:15pm:

My body temperature regulation is off; I simultaneously feel cold and warm. I’m not feeling much in the way of tactile enhancement anymore, but my sense of smell feels potentiated.

6:20pm:

I’m feeling kind of stupid at this point. It’s hard to come across the correct words to express my thoughts. My vision is mildly distorted in my peripherals, with downward wave-like drifting. I’m starting to get more consistent geometry, especially when staring at blank sheets of paper or the wall.

6:37pm:

Nitrous hits are causing the chromatic aberration to become more pronounced. My short-term memory is getting worse at this point. I’m starting to hallucinate smells; at one point I start smelling brownies being baked when clearly there were none.

6:58pm:

I’m getting frame rate suppression while we’re playing Yoshi’s Island.

7:00pm:

I’m starting to grind my teeth together.

7:20pm:

My friend and I went out into the kitchen to start cooking and I still feel like I’m tripping. I’m getting geometry in my peripherals and it’s hard to focus on cooking.

7:50pm:

After eating the meal we cooked, we sit down and start watching a documentary together.

8:00pm:

I feel like I’m coming down at this point. The dissociation is starting to disappear, my mind feels less foggy and my body temperature starts regulating itself more efficiently.

Conclusion / Aftermath

I’m feeling incredibly euphoric afterwards and am left with great impressions. I’m really looking forward to higher dose trips on this drug in the future.
