Bubbler Water Experiments
I was introduced to methamphetamine by a close, childhood friend who had recently learned that I was being prescribed adderal and had been enjoying them quite a bit. He proceeded to tell me that crystal meth gets this rap for being a big, bad, drug. When in reality, it was just a stronger version of adderal, as to heroin being a stronger painkiller. I wound up making up my mind, and deciding to go ahead through with it and asked my buddy if he could bring me back a small sample bag from the next time he went and saw his dealer, and adventually it happened. I procured the small bag of translucent shards.
I asked my friend whether or not I should try smoking, eating, or snorting it, and he said I should sniff the stuff to get the most 'bang for your buck.' He told me to do small-ish lines. And that I should space out the lines 30 minutes apart from one another.
The first time I tried the stuff, I was pleasantly wired almost instantly. Walking around the neighborhood feeling great euphoria. I stayed awake for 48 hours easily, and was happily high for about 14 hours straight. (feeling effects for a full 24+)
I was then introduced to my good friend's dealer, who just so happened to take a liking to me. Though the gentleman was gay, and would often flirt with me, he was genuinley one of the nicest, most caring, generous individuals I've honest met in my life. And so I began to hang out over his house alot. Each time I'd go over, he would be sitting in his darkened man cave with his roommate. Watching whatever was on Netflix, constantly smoking Tina (slang for crystal methamphetamine). He had a very interesting, almost alien looking water pipe, with which we all would take turns taking enormous hits off of.
At some point he tells me that the crystal is in fact water soluble, and so, about once a month, he would pour out the pipes water onto a flat, glass plate. Would then allow the water to evaporate, and would then scrape up all of the remaining shards of Tina. He once told me that he somehow got 4-5 grams from a single evaporation. The concept seemed so insane to me.
The concept seemed so insane to me.
And then I got the idea! (after getting somewhat of a tolerance for the stuff) I asked my friend/dealer kindly if I could go ahead and drink some of the solution. He proceeded with a shrug, and a 'Yeah sure. I guess. Why not?'
He told me the 100mL (or however much he gave me, perhaps it was about the same amount as the volume of an eye dropper bottle) would be undrinkable straight up, and so I fixed myself a glass of Hawaiian punch. He then added the solution to my drink, and I then took a sip of the concoction, and winced. A bitterness like I had never experienced (second to the taste of pure DXM powder).
He chuckled, and told me go ahead, 'enjoy'. And I did! It took me about an hour, but I eventually managed to swallow it all down. Looking back, I probably consumed a half gram of crystal maybe more in that one drink. And that was alot, considering at that point a quarter gram would last me roughly a whole day.
I then proceeded to get the jitters, as my hands began to shake just a little bit. The 'spun out' feeling was then broadened it seemed as the buzz grew into a 'larger', warmer, stoning effect. My eye lids lowered, and for a bit I truly felt as if I were rolling on MDMA! (perhaps this is because I drank the Tina, and didn't smoke the stuff? not exactly sure really)
One of the strangest effects, one of the reasons I wanted to document this occurrence was the 'shivering of my pupils, and eye lids'. I assume that because my body had consumed SO much amphetamines it began doing weird things. My eyes were visibly moving back and force in quick concession. I was a bit freaked out, I can't lie, but the Tina had me so chilled at that point, I wasn't even able to care all that much anyways.
I continued hanging out for another 24 some hours. Smoking continuously, laughing joking, and rarely, if ever, actually drinking any liquids or eating any food. I later left, squinting at the day light, dreading the drive back to my house roughly 15min away.
