Drink water

One of the most common side effects of a bad high is dry mouth. Drink some water in order to avoid this and to also give yourself something simple to focus on, which is the act of drinking and swallowing. Avoid alcohol, since this could make things worse and result in a crossfaded high.

Eat something delicious

One of the best ways to burn all of that high energy is to eat something delicious. Food is always great while high and eating is one of the simplest ways to keep yourself distracted. If you’re feeling paranoid and anxious, try ordering some food or going on a walk and buying something to eat. You can also try cooking, but that might be too much to ask for a too-high person.

Focus on something that demands your attention

Being super high is disorienting and overstimulating, making it difficult to focus on one thing. Still, the best and most helpful attitude to adopt is to know that these feelings will pass within an hour or two. Something distracting that can help you reorient yourself and pass the time is to focus on something that demands your attention. A coloring book is a great bet since writing or making something might be too much to ask. Having a conversation with a friend, perhaps talking out your feelings, is also a good option.


Have some coffee

While coffee won’t instantly delete your high, it can help you focus on something beyond the freak-out. Drinking coffee will give you something to hold and to do, very helpful in these situations, and will give your brain a much-needed jolt to return to normalcy.
