One Saturday I was hanging out in a lakeside woodland cabin and decided to take about 12mg of 2cp in the early afternoon. I've taken it a handful of times before, and I've always found it to be a beautiful, sustaining chemical. I've never taken more than 15 mg, and I tend to stick around 12-15 mg in order to avoid unpleasant physical side effects.
As usual, I feel an alert about 15 minutes in, but the come up slowly marches along with no significant psychedelic quality until about 3 hours in. At this point a late afternoon sun is warming my private lakeside beach, and swimming under the increasing effects of the 2cp both relieves the stimulation in my limbs as well as feeling amazing. Soft summer light falls across the woods around the lake, and a perfect summer afternoon is enhanced by this warm, gentle drug.
I have found in the past that hours 3-12 of this drug are best spent moving, and swimming is ideal. I feel like I could swim for miles without feeling tired. I'll note I'm a comfortable and experienced swimmer; I don't recommend swimming on psychedelic drugs unless it's already second nature.
I had planned to take some 4-aco-dmt a few hours in to the 2cp trip, but when the time comes I don't see the need. At this dosage and in the woods, 2cp feels more like mescaline to me than it does when I'm at home or a party. All the growing things around me seem lit by an internal light, and visuals are faint in the daylight -- visual effects are more along the lines of enriched color and detail in my beautiful surroundings. Ripe raspberries stand out against green foliage from a distance I wouldn't normally be able to see.
The evening comes on slowly and dreamily and at times I can't tell whether I'm on a drug or simply happy and surrounded by nature and good friends. There is a lot of laughter, but no confusion or speediness -- instead I find 2cp stretches time out in a unique way, where an hour lasts a century and a day goes by in an instant.
After a filling dinner of grilled fish and vegetables, my friends and I light a bonfire on the beach and watch meteors streak by overhead. I get to sleep around 2am, fairly early for a 2cp trip, but the long day outside wears me out in a way this long-acting phenethylamine can't overcome.
