Is it narked or narced ? I don’t know...lets go with narked...

So have you ever been narked? If so, choose the shallowest depth you’ve experienced Nitrogen Narcosis. Also, put in the comments how you could tell you were narked.

[Choose #2] I stated ’Yes’ but... I’ve never experienced ’unintentional’ narc’g. Minor ’intentional’ narc’g with a before & after reflex test was part of one of my AOW check-out dives.

[Choose #4] The word is narced, and I dive below 200 about once a month. I start feeling the hit about 185, and after a few minutes it gets more noticable, then I start counting fingers. once I have the slightest counting problem I know its time to get shallower

[Choose #2] Minor NARC is pretty enjoyable. Feel a little light headed and giggly. Should avoid though.

[Choose #5] Many dives past 100 feet, including 137 on the Oriskany. Never even came close to feeling narced. Although, one of my Dive Buddies did on the second Mighty O dive.

HogLifer - 9/10/2010 2:19 PM
[Choose #4] I need to be at least 160 to 180 ft to feel nared, It feels like an impending feeling of doom. Not the drunk feeling everybody talks about.

[Choose #1] I wasn’t narc’d but my buddy was. He had his eyes focused on the fiber in the down line saying WOW. Looking into his eyes I could tell he was stoned.

[Choose #4] I knew I was narked because I couldn’t multiply 6 times 7 on an underwater slate.
