Yesterday I changed my lock screen pattern and forgot it today. How can I unlock my phone to change it again?

I'm using a new pill to sleep and that makes me kind of "drunk". While I was "drunk" I changed my phone pattern and completely forgot it. The "forgot pattern" option did not show up after my 25 wrong attempts. It runs on Motorola Lollipop
