      Erm, this is potentially very unsafe discussion. I remember being young and force-fainting with my friends, it seemed fun at the time but it causes a great deal of confusion, soimetimes violent reactions to the faitee, and emotional overload (crying). Another way this has involuntarily occurred was during a cocaine binge when I was taking a shit, then stood up, fainted, and almost broke every finger on my right hand. It's fucking stupid.

      Why would you want to faint? It's just black out.

      This thread is rather silly.

      I've never fainted. Only almost. I honestly thought I'll black out but no, I was whiting out. My vision turned brighter, everything turned blurred and I couldn't see. I managed to squat down or collapsed on my bed when I am still conscious and I slowly regained colour on my cheeks.

      I felt like fainting a couple of times when I exercised after not exercising for a long time. Another time was because I was having a bad diarrhoea.

      I collapsed on the floor once, without much strength to move, after I went for a wisdom tooth operation and I opted to be knock out unconscious with a gas, so the gas made me felt like vomiting. But I was weak all over the body only because I was unable to consume much as my mouth was puffy, I didn't feel like fainting at that time though, just legs gave way and collapsed on the floor. My mother came into the room with a big shock.

      Well at least I wasn't force-fainting. I honestly had a weak body.

      She wants to know how, I explained to her what happened to me. I believe she's sensible enough to know what to do, what not to do.

      Phion I love how you prioritised. First piece of advice was "don't force faint", followed by "don't do cocaine"

      You risk hypoxic brain damage due to a greyout or blackout, and could possibly injure yourself by hitting your head on something.

      Sorry I wasn't clear. I was knocked out unconscious with a gas because of an operation. I didn't had to but I thought it would be horrid to see drills or knifes or surgical equipments poking at my mouth so I'd rather be unconscious.

      I know what was said, N2O is a good friend of mine, and I've been under for similar reasons when I got my wisdom teeth pulled.

      You feel heavy, you can't hear properly, and then you lose conciousness (kind of like when you fall asleep). There's nothing fun about or even remotely interesting about the experience. You're better off smoking a joint if you're just chasing thrills, it'd probably be safer too.

      Your vision gets blurry, it's very difficult to hear anything (it's a bit like when you yawn), and you will eventually lose consciousness. There's nothing cool about it, it's pretty lame actually, and I certainly wouldn't encourage anyone to try to force it (I didn't even know you could do that? That's just plain stupid.)

      I went from 1,500 feet above sea level to 11,000 foot above sea level in less than 12 hours, blacked out, passed out and fell in a dog dish. I came back to reality a few minutes later, but I was like, "Aw shit, this is what Abraham Lincoln must have felt like."

      Everyone else is right, it's nothing special. I've only nearly fainted, and just once. What happened was my vision started getting darker and muddier, and then my vision started to close off from the outside edges of my view toward the center. Essentially you get tunnel vision and eventually you don't see anything. I'm guessing shortly after this you wake up on the floor or wherever it is you fainted at.

      From what? A car? Helicopter?

      I doubt there is any safe way to faint, and it isn't worth the risk of brain damage, so I'm not advocating that you try to do it at all. I haven't done it myself in about 7 years due to this fear, and that was due to an emergency, and I hadn't done it for 4 years before that.

      With that said, I've done it a few times in my life, mostly while I was a kid and just discovered it and thought it was cool. I think you read my other post on that, but it's very hard to explain because I'm not sure what my body's doing exactly, and can only describe what it feels is happening. Try to push air out of your lungs like you're exhaling, but don't actually exhale into your mouth. You should feel your diaphragm in your lungs tensing up, along with some muscles around your throat, jaw and near the back of your head. That's what I think might be happening... exhaling but not letting the air escape so that it creates pressure. And that puts pressure on the brain somehow too.

      It's safe to do it for a few seconds without fainting, but you should start to feel very strange - dizzy, light-headed. Sounds become less audible and there's a pressure building up in what seems like the sides of my jaw. Once you start feeling dizzy you should stop, because of the whole brain damage thing. But I guess it might be useful to know how to do if you're in an emergency or something, like if you're being captured and need to provide some distraction, or there's some situation you NEED to get out of. If you do experience the same dizziness/light-headedness that I describe then you're probably doing it right and congratulations: you can make yourself faint. But again, there's really no need to do it all the way.

      But if you did keep going... if you're pushing pushing hard enough, these feelings will all keep getting more intense, and it only takes a few seconds before you.... are suddenly somewhere else. On the floor or in someone's arms or something. You feel different, like you've been gone for a long time and are waking up in a dream or something, while in reality you were only out for a minute or so. Have you ever gotten the feeling that you aren't really here? Like you're in some strange situation, talking to someone or something, but you feel like you've just become aware of the situation and it feels weird, like you were just by yourself or something. I don't know if anyone knows what I'm talking about, but that's the feeling I get after waking up from fainting.

      A couple strange things about my experience in particular. I've heard that when you faint, you aren't supposed to dream, but I distinctly remember dreaming the very first time I did it (in a school washroom). The third time or so, there were a few people around (who thought I was faking, kids lol), and they told me afterward that I'd been freaking out and gasping for air or something. The last time I did it, I woke up while walking. I'd done it because I was extremely angry and was willing to do anything to get out of the situation. When I woke up, my mom was leading me somewhere. So I'm not sure whether I fainted or just blacked out. I tended to fall down and definitely lost consciousness, but apparently I sometimes keep moving and doing things.

      After being put out while getting my wisdom teeth removed, it was a bit different. I came back to consciousness while on a bench, talking to the nurse about how to take care of my teeth now. I had gotten up and walked there by myself, and was apparently listening to her and conversing with her before that. But my consciousness was just gone until I suddenly became alert. I'm not sure what to make of all of it, but I'm thinking something similar happens while fainting. Maybe I'm only out for a bit, then I'm back again but blacked out until my consciousness decides to take control.

      A scary thought is, what if there are people who really aren't conscious (or 'zombies', to use the philosophical term) and are just blacked out all the time. Maybe people with some sorts of brain damage have this, and I guess we'd never be able to tell, except that they wouldn't be able to talk about consciousness as if they know what it is, I guess.

      Last year I was in a moshpit and by accident I slipped and hit the floor with the back of my head at full falling speed.The concret wasn't that soft to be honest.I got up and I couldn't stand still.The whole room was rotating around me.Since I paid good money to see the bands,I decided to just watch them for a while.By this time is started noticing that was slowly starting blackout. My vision i.e. the picture in my head of what I was seeing was starting to just slowly move away from me and become blurry and darker.When I couldn't see a thing,I immediately left the room and sat down. It felt like I was just seconds away from losing consciousness...

      I went to see Nuclear Assault in Paris and stage diving was off the cards. At the back of the moshpit there were two enormous bikers. They cupped their hands which I would run and jump into placing a foot in each of their cupped hands. They would then throw me really high into the air so that I could crowd surf the moshpit. One time I messed up my balance and I flew backwards instead of forwards over the moshpit. There weren't many people behind and I landed on the concrete floor flat on my back. Man it knocked the wind out of me and I felt like I couldn't move at all. The bikers helped me up and I fell straight back down. They carried me to the bar got me a grande bierre and sorted me out with a line of coke. Nice chaps for back patch bikers !!!

      When I got back to England I went to my local rock club all fired up. I climbed a balcony and lots of people on the dancefloor were looking at me so I knew I was good to go. I dived to crowd surf and they all feckin moved out of the way. I hit the floor face first. My nose exploded with blood gushing and then the bouncers feckin threw me out !!!

      But the best moshpit ever was seeing Napalm Death in my home town. I spent the whole gig stage diving. The next day I was covered in bruises and ached all over.

      I have never lost consciousness but Ive battered my body a little nonetheless

      I passed out in church once. I was standing in the back (locking my legs...) and it looked really bright outside. Next thing I knew I couldn't see at all, so I'm like, "Dad I can't see..." At that point he saw I was going down so he grabbed me and dragged me outside, where I collapsed on the steps and started dry heaving. I come close to passing out often when I stand up (low blood pressure or something).

      But my friends and I have intentionally made ourselves pass out before. I know it's bad for you and people die, so we don't do it anymore. But the time I did do it, I fell backwards and my friends caught me. But it felt like I was waking up from sleep and being shaken violently. When I woke up I was panicking, like, "what are you doing!? get off of me!" I had no idea what was going on for a few seconds. I won't say what our technique was because it is destructive behavior that I now know better than to do.
