It was a day in summer. And I didn't expected anything. First I felt a bit sick, but it was gone after a maybe ten minutes. I was walking and my friend told me, that it will be better soon and everything will be wonderful.
That was it, what happened. It was a warm feeling inside, and I had to lay down at the gras. It was such a wonderful feeling, the nature around me, me as a part of the nature. Every Grashalm, every leaf at the trees... everything was One.
The bees flew so slow and I was talking so fast. Time is relativ - Einstein was right!
I always new, that the absinth opened my mind, so I knew, that i wasn't able, to put my hands through the clouds. But I felt like it, even if I know, it won't work.
I was one with the whole universe, everythink made sense and was good... it was me, just more of me.
Nature and Universe, this is what I love...
Freedom for every human and animal and the nature. And this is what I felt - it's possible!
It wasn't like being drunk. It was more, "opened". I saw, hear, smell, feel... what is real, but "more".
Two hours were gone, which felt like 15 Minutes! Than I felt, that I was getting back to "reality". I was a bit sleepy, because I think, the body worked a lot, to have this "opened mind". But it still was good.
I had no hangover, no headache or something like that, after being drunk. I just have the experience in my mind, the knowlage about myself, what really is important and everything is One (like "ontologica". It was a very thankful expirience vor me, for my life untill now... and I think, I will drink it again - the REAL absinth - but just in the nature! Try it! It's full of peace!

About the effects of absinthe
When it comes to the effects of drinking absinthe, people's opinions -- and experiences -- vary wildly. Some go as far as to claim the drink is psychoactive, while others say there is no "secondary" (that is, other than alcohol-induced) effect at all.
As early as 1993, Matthew Baggott posted his Absinthe FAQ in the Usenet newsgroup "alt.drugs" (there wasn't much of the web as we know it back then). As you will suspect from the newsgroup's name, the issue of absinthe's "psychoactive qualities" was one of the interests of the document.
Some people take it further still. We definitely do not recommend any experiments with Paxil and absinthe (nor, for that matter, mixing any medicine with alcohol). Anyway, it's quite clear which way the wind blows here, since Jasmine Sailing's bizarre piece more or less concludes absinthe is a narcotic. Is it really? Yup, it does read like the girl was out of her mind when she wrote the page -- and no, we don't think the Fairy was to blame!
A far more sober look at the effects of the Green Fairy can be found in "The Return of the Green Faerie", an article written by Frank Kelly Rich of the Modern Drunkard magazine (no pun intended). Recommended reading.
