10 Times you Should say No to Ketamine

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, ketamine is a anesthetic and a paralytic. This makes ketamine extremely dangerous in certain situations. You can do serious physical and mental damage to yourself when you use ketamine in the wrong situations.

1. At Raves

Raves are large parties where techno music and doing drugs, particularly MDMA, is commonplace. Most people at raves do stimulants. Although some users recommend it, doing a drug that could paralyze you or make you unconcious for any length of time is dangerous during a rave. There are usually a lot of people who are not in control of their actions at raves. You can easily get hurt.

2. At Parties

Like raves, parties are dangerous places for using ketamine. Ketamine is a date rape drug. There are a lot of people who report date rape at parties where they’ve either voluntarily or involuntarily taken ketamine.

3. Around People you Do Not Know

No to Ketamine

You shouldn’t do ketamine when you’re alone, in case of a bad reaction.

Like raves and parties, ketamine is dangerous, when you are around people that you do not know. There are reasons why people use this as a drug to hurt others. It renders you incapable of defending or protecting yourself, no matter how strong or big you are ketamine still makes you vulnerable.

4. When you are Not at Home

When you are not at home passing out or becoming unconscious can be extremely dangerous. If you are not at home with people you trust, you are in danger of being taken advantage of or you could find yourself unconscious outside in the cold, in the street, or somewhere else dangerous. Not everyone is nice enough to call emergency services, if something should go wrong.

5. When you are all Alone

Doing a hallucinogen, dissociative, or paralytic, while you are alone is dangerous. You could have a reaction with no one around to help.

6. When you are Somewhere that being Paralyzed and Unable to Defend yourself is Dangerous

There are many situations that being unconscious is dangerous. Even though you might be happy unable to move and hallucinating wildly, best case scenario someone could call an ambulance and you could wake up in a hospital or they could do something much much worse.

7. When you are Already Showing the Physical Signs of Ketamine Abuse

If you are already showing some of the physical side effects, such as memory loss, you should probably say no to more ketamine. The damage to the body is cumulative and often progresses as you take more of the drug.

8. When you are Showing the Signs of Bladder Failure

Chronic bladder infections, painful urination, and blood in your urine are all symptoms of bladder failure. This failure can become permanent. If you are experiencing these symptoms you definitely need to say no to your next dose of ketamine.
