This is one of the worst articles I've ever read on Wikipedia.
This is one of the best articles I've ever read on Wikipedia.
It contains lots of sources about a "k hole" and reading it reminds me of previous experiences. With other drug trips, it's usually always different. With Ketamine, it's usually always the same. A "k hole" is the only way to describe it. And, since you have a major article on ketamine, describing it's main effect then warrants it's own article.
This is one of the best articles i've ever seen...
I appreciate that it has not been deleted. It's straightforward and to the point while describing a real phenomena. I wish there were more references though. Killemall22 (talk) 20:43, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Please do not delete this article.
I have personally experienced the symptoms described in the article during a medical treatment in Congo which left me in a state of shock for months. Reading this article was very helpful since now my experience seems less uncommon and is in fact rather well documented. Thanks for not deleting the article! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Humbertoldi (talk • contribs) 10:39, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Alternate interpretation for the term "K hole".
K is classed as a "dissociative" and this medical term seems to include the currently offered explanation. The K-hole therefore does not refer to the experience of the dissociative state - as suggested - but rather the effects that accumulate with long term use. Since the chemical is short acting and produces psychological dependence, the K-hole describes the process of becoming addicted. If you are in the K hole, it means you are a regular user and can no longer distinguish your internal experiences from objective reality. John Lilly and Marcia Moore are examples of people who entered the K -hole. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:04, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
^^what? -k-hole does NOT mean addiction. the k-hole is when you take a large enough dose to basically knock you out — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:03, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
