Thanks for sharing the story. I think most of us have all had a tale or 2 similar to that.
Years back after my friend had been hit by a car and prescribed T3s, we decided it'd be a good idea to pop 3 or 4 of them before a big night of drinking and hit a show. I remember the show relatively well but afterwards I was a complete mess. We went to a couple of bars after and I ran into some old friends from college. They tried to converse with me but I couldn't utter a word, let alone a sentence. They finally gave up. A friend of ours was bartending at the last bar we hit. Towards the end of the night, he stood up on the bar and said 'thanks a lot you fucking drunks for stealing my tips after I served your sorry asses all night.' Turns out I had been walking around the bar for an hr with his tip jar in my hand thinking it was my drink.
They'll never let me live that one down. Moral of the story, don't mix prescription drugs with alcohol.

Apparently I crashed my moped directly in front of will call. Walked up, got my ticket, then tried to walk into the venue like nothing had happened.

I LOL'd, only because I can see myself 2 years ago doing the same exact thing.

Also, klonopin is a benzo, not a barbiturate, but yeah... that shit was my downfall. The devil indeed!!

Glad you're ok dude!
I take my benzo's daily, and have for years. I've never had that problem with them. But maybe I've developed a tolerance since I've been prescribed them for almost 20 years now.

Better living through chemistry and all that.

Some people can handle that. I couldn't.

My problem was more than just benzos though. But they were a key part of the equation.
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

I hadn't been taking the Klonopins that long when this happened, but I had drank on them a couple times and I always tried to be really careful. I think the key player in getting me to that level was the binge drinking before the show. I haven't taken a benzo since that night.

Also, that story is hilarious Budd  :clap:

Just worked all day. Kicked back with a beer and wrote this out.

About this time last year had plans to go see Mac Demarco at Stubbs. Also around this time I was prescribed Klonopin. Then, to add on to this downward spiral I discovered that the gas station close to my house sold two 32 oz. Steel Reserves for only $2.15. Empty Steel Reserves and pints of Evan Williams could be found all over my home. Anyways, the day had come for me to go see Mac. Had been looking forward to the show for a while. On the same day, I had just gotten a re-fill on my Klonopin. It had been about ten days since I had run out and had to wait until I was allowed by my doctor to get my re-fill. I planned on having a few beers, taking a pill, and just having a mellow time chatting it up in my anxiety free haze. What ended up happening is me pounding Steel Bullets (more than two) and taking my K-pins as soon as I left so I wouldn't start to feel them until got to the venue which was about 15 minutes away. I wanted to be safe :roll:. My plan was to see how fucked up I was by the end of the show and decide then if I needed to get an Uber. Back then I rode my moped around town and you can park anywhere for free if you drive a motorcycle in Austin. Hopped on my moped and rode off to the venue. About half way there it started to become apparent to me that I was not familiar with this state of fucked uppedness. My motor skills were going down the tubes fast which doesnít really happen to me even after a few Steel Bullets. That half way mark is the last thing I remember...

Apparently I crashed my moped directly in front of will call. Walked up, got my ticket, then tried to walk into the venue like nothing had happened. They turned me away for obvious reasons. I turned around got back on my moped. Moved it to a parking spot. Went  back to the show, and again the venue refused to let me in. First I tried switching doors guys. Then I tried running through full speed. The manager comes out and I started arguing that I wasn't in that bad of shape and Iíd be fine by the end of the show. Continued to argue. The cops show up. By this point I don't even remember my own name, address, date of birth, etc. Iím falling down, the cop is picking up my wallet off the ground when I missed my pocket. He also found my weed, but it was just my one-hitter.

They took me to jail. I kinda remember just waiting around for a long time. The cool/fucked up thing about barbiturates is that you just donít care about any situation you are in. Nothing affects you in any way. Itís a joke to you how much you donít care and you kinda want people to know it. Shit is the devil. I woke up in my own cell which was cool. Charged with public intoxication.

Went back to Stubb's a few days later for some local band. Had NO IDEA i wasnít supposed to be there. ALL the employees recognize me when I smoking a cigarette outside. The manager comes up and tells me what happeNed and that I now have a three year criminal trespassing warrant out for me. If I return to Stubb's I could be arrested.

Thatís basically it. DONíT FUCK WITH BARBITURATES!

You left out the part where you forgot where you parked your moped and then called me while walking around searching.

Yep, thought I'd parked it somewhere in a tow away zone. Drove around the next day and finally found it.

Mister Charlie told you so.
