I took a word to work with me,
And it made me feel quite chill.
But after I mixed it up to some degree,
The wooziness began to fill

So I mixed it up - I took away
And it helped me get back home.
I was prescribed some dice to take today
And let it loose full blown!


What's the word?


Hints

1. Enlightenment comes from within - or inside

2. Death always comes together, but shortened

3. If you're having trouble, call me on 3547!

Is it possible the word is:

Tranquil

I took a word to work with me,
And it made me feel quite chill.

By definition, one who is tranquil is calm and relaxed.

But after I mixed it up to some degree, The wooziness began to fill

Tranquil anagrams to Quantril, which is brand of a discontinued drug that was used to treat vomiting and nausea. Would probably make you feel a bit woozy...

So I mixed it up - I took away
And it helped me get back home.

If you anagram again, and take away some letters you can find Rail, Trail or Train - all potentially helpful in getting home.

I was prescribed some dice to take today
And let it loose full blown!

I feel like I might be stretching a bit here, but bear with me... If we choose Rail as the word from the previous step, and add a singular die (you don't want to take too many at a time after all), we can anagram to deliria, which is a full-blown state of wild excitement!

  • $\begingroup$ Very interesting answer, but not what I had in mind. Any time where letters are taken/added, there is a hint for which ones, so you can't just "take away some letters"! $\endgroup$ – Oliver Aug 18 at 10:19
  • $\begingroup$ For an answer that's not what @Oliver had in mind, this is pretty good $\endgroup$ – Derek O Aug 18 at 17:46
  • $\begingroup$ I agree! @Johnson, you have the right idea - try using the hints I've added $\endgroup$ – Oliver Aug 18 at 20:42

Just a real attempt at this one, I could be off, but I think the Word in this case is booze (alcohol). Some reasoning is that we have a wooziness clue in the first paragraph, and the I mixed it up basically, to avoid showing the alcohol, you would have to have modify the contents or mixture to make it not smell or look like booze. Later, when you got home you were prescribed dice meaning, you probably had to take some medication to get over the effects of the booze. Cool riddle, but there could probably be more and better answers.

    $\begingroup$ Interesting answer, but not the one I'm after. These sorts of puzzles are based around anagrams and adding/removing letters $\endgroup$ – Oliver Aug 10 at 16:58
