I am what I would consider an attemptug user, everyday weed smoker, tried coke, shrooms, vicoden, xanax, DXM, K2, basically I've been around the block.

So one day I was at my friends house smoking a few bowls and he asks if I knew anyone who was looking for heroin, his friend recently started selling some. I said maybe and left shortly after and went to a different friend Tommys house to stay the night (just 2 houses over). The next day I went back with $10 and said it was for a friend, so he called the guy and in less than 30 minutes the deal was done.

I went back to Tommys house excited that this was really happening. While Tommy himself doesn't smoke or do drugs, he doesn't care if friends do, but I figured heroin would cause a problem so I kept it a secret.

We played xbox for about an hour and it was going on 8 p.m. So I went to the bathroom to see what all the hype was about. I took out the piece of folded paper with the heroin inside and gave it a good look. I crushed up a decent amount and formed a line, rolled up my dollar, and before I knew it, the line was gone, now we wait.

The first thing I noticed was how easy it went down, no burn, no sneezing, nothing at all. Then I tasted it, it was kind of bitter but nothing too bad. I had read online that the effects kick in after about 45 minutes, which let ir catch me off guard. I felt the effects after about 10 minutes and began to relax.

After about 20 minutes, I felt extremely relaxed and at ease, my mood lifted, I was being sweet to my girlfriend (we were texting and had no clue about the heroin), everything was great. I had a body buzz but it felt just like hydrocodone which disappointed me because of all the stories I read. If you've never experienced hydrocodone, to me it kind of numbs my body while giving a euphoric sensation at the same time, it also makes me very itchy which the heroin didn't do so I was happy about that. So at about 8:30 p.m. I go back to the bathroom for round 2. This time the line a little smaller. Rolled up the dollar and like magic, the powder disappeared.

I didn't notice a very big difference other than a more intense euphoria, so sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the buzz for an hour or so. At around 9:30 p.m. His parents went to bed. I said I was taking a shower and went to the bathroom, I wanted the full heroin experience so I was going to shoot up. I had everything ready, spoon, syringe, cotton, a lighter and the 'H' of course so I turned on the shower for noise and cooked it up. But the cotton piece was too big and absorbed all of the mixture, baffled, I just ate the cotton, it wasn't going to waste.There was a small amount the syringe was about to retract (about 14 cc's) so I said 'fuck it' and gave it a go. I found a vein and emptied the syringe into my arm, and right away I was hit my a small wave of reinvigorating freshness and happiness. I turned off the shower and returned to Tommys room once more. I sat on the bed, feeling great, my senses were working at full capacity, my body felt amazing, everything was good. After about 30 minutes I started to nod out which was extremely pleasurable, it was like dreaming while I was awake, and I could control the dream.

All in all I liked this first attempt but I want to try on more time to get the full experience.
