First off, I'd been wanting to do heroin for a very long time. At the time of the event, I'd already done cocaine, meth, weed, various opiates in pill form, every benzo that exists, and a few psychedelics. I'd always had a love in my heart for oxycodone and morphine, so I'd been wanting to try heroin. I got in contact with a friend who knew where to get any drug I could ask for, and bought three bags of heroin off of him. He urges me to be cautious and is on his merry way.

Then I'm alone with these tiny bags of white powder with reddish-pink flakes (that I can only imagine was Benadryl). The time is 8:20. I pour out a tiny bit of the powder onto a CD about 1/3 inch long and snort it. It burns like crazy in my nose and the back of my throat. I begin feeling a little high, but nothing too major. About three minutes pass and I get up to get a drink of water and my coordination is a little off. I bump into a shelf. Let it be noted that I hadn't done any opiates for about two weeks before this.
I hadn't done any opiates for about two weeks before this.
I go back into my room, blast some music and close my eyes, a fuzzy feeling in my head begins.

Ten minutes later, my boyfriend arrives and he's doing his first line and I'm having my second, this time maybe 1/2 of an inch long. This one burns way more than the first, and I lay back on my bed, feeling a more intense feeling wash over me. My eyes are starting to droop. I feel so happy and am making happy little moaning noises. Trying to hold a conversation is impossible, I just laugh at everything.

When that high starts going away, around 9:15, my boyfriend decides to plug a little dope and I do another line. Plugging, for those who don't know, is the act of shoving a needleless syringe up your ass and squirting the heroin dissolved into water in. He tells me how much better it is than snorting it, so I decide to plug a little as well. I have no measurements or mg for how much I did, but the act of plugging was so much better. This is when I truly began to nod. I had such euphoria over me.

The next day, I wake up with bodyaches and a heavy feeling in my head. I immediately want to do more but I urge myself not to. I wasn't doing the heroin to get addicted, just to get high. But that was yesterday and this is today. I plan on doing the rest and spacing it out between the next week or so. I can definitely see the potential for addiction. No other drug has ever made me feel so amazing, yet had such a horrible comedown. I'm having cravings still, but pushing to wait.
