When an AI writes about its drug experiences

I fed some of the Erowid drug experience reports into an AI text-generating model. I dub this configuration GPTrip-2 and here are some of the gems it came up with:

I am a 12 year old boy, and have been addicted to nicotine for a few years now. I take it at 6 p.m. every day, and smoke it out of a coffee grinder. I always smoke a gram, and never rest a day.

My friend Adrafinil was prescribed 5mg of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in the form of Adderall XR for his ADHD.

During the second wave of psychedelic alchohol, a sort of euphoric mood lift occurred.

I have also used Alcohol as a means of getting drunk and for that I am grateful.

GPTrip-2

My friend had just come home from a concert when I asked him if he could go for a walk with me. ‘Yes’, he said, ‘but I’m afraid I won’t. I can’t walk. It’s not going to stop, it’s going to go slowly.’

Poor thing was drinking and tripping out:

I was drinking and I was tripping out, and my little brother was talking to me. I saw him and thought, ‘What’s happening?’, and said something like, ‘What’s happening?’
‘I’m tripping out’, I replied, ‘I’m drunk’.
I continued to drink and I was tripping out. I had a shitty friend of the same name come over to my house, and he told me he was the drunkest guy in the world, and he said some pretty mean things and I said some shit. He was in a wheelchair, but I just kept saying ‘I’m drunk’ and ‘I’m tripping out’ and I continued to drink. I was tripping out again, but I had to go to the bathroom, and I was still drunk.

Oh, don’t worry, I feel like that all the time:

While I typically recuperate from bouts of depression, in this particular case it was the combination of a very hard cold and a very warm wet hand that had me so cold that I felt like I was going to be a complete fuck.

GPTrip-2

This tea needs to be very, very strained:

Strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer and strain into a fine mesh mesh strainer and strain, and strain, and strain. Pour the tea into a fine mesh strainer and strain into a fine mesh mesh strainer, and pour all of the liquid back into the tea.

GPTrip-2

It can also get very dark in GPTrip-2’s mind:

I was in such a great state that I knew I was dying. I knew I was dying mentally. I understood that I was dying in a horrible way. I knew I was dying physically. I was dying mentally. I knew that I was dying. I couldn’t understand what I was supposed to be communicating to my friend. It was so scary because I could not tell what was going on inside my head. I knew I was dying spiritually. I was dying spiritually

GPTrip-2

Quantities seem to confuse its poor brain:

I had a bit of a buzz, but not much, as I ate nothing (approx. 2 medium sized pizzas)

GPTrip-2

A real connoisseur:

I have taken many different types of alcohol. I have taken vicodin, lorazepam, and vicodin. I have also taken some of the more known and more common absinthe blends.

GPTrip-2

Damn, that’s not where the alcohol should go:

I take one and only shot – I don’t drink often that often – but the second it hits my pupil it goes really fast!

GPTrip-2

That’s me in one sentence:

I don’t remember much but I do remember I was drinking a lot. I have no recollection of this.

GPTrip-2

Well, that seems rather healthy:

First of all, I have no known form of schizophrenia, and have had no known form of schizophrenia for almost a year now.

GPTrip-2

Don’t we all wish that this election had just been a distortion of our vision:

Before the presidential election, I was in a bit of a mental bubble. I felt pretty good, not emotionally, but mentally, at least spiritually. I was there, but it was mostly just a visual distortion of my seeing.

GPTrip-2

Well I bet, it doesn’t sound too comfy:

I had a bottle of absinthe in my mouth and was starting to notice it.

GPTrip-2

Well, why not:

I went to the living room and put my hand down my throat, and watched some TV.

GPTrip-2

I had come down from a trip of my being at a party, and felt like I needed to go to my room, but it wasn’t here.

GPTrip-2

I’ve never done any drugs besides pot, and this was my first experience on shrooms. I had to eat dinner with some fries because I was so dizzy and didn’t remember what was going on over and over, so of course, the dishes wouldn’t work out.

If you want to read the entire first file I’ve generated, feel free. I’ll be working on enlarging the data set and doing some more runs in the future.
