It was kind of a weird question. Would I like to try morphine? I had never even thought of someone 'doing' morphine to get high. I mean, I had heard of morphine addicts and such, I guess I just never put two and two together.

I agreed to try it to my good friend's (and my own) surprise.

So we went to his basement and he pulled out the pills. There were just four, one for each of my friends with us at the time. None of us knew much about the drug or anyone who had tried it.

We all took the pill with some water and waited patiently for the effects. 20 minutes went by, nothing. After about an hour I noticed I felt slightly lightheaded and just an overall good feeling. Not great, nowhere near as good as coke or anything, but just a nice feeling all over. I felt very giddy and was laughing at terrible jokes and smiling the whole time.

As I went home I was definitely coming down, I went to sleep with no problem. When I woke up, it was a very different story.

I awoke with my tongue stuck to my pillow, my alarm clock blaring, and the worst headache in my life. I had never been so dehydrated. I actually carried my pillow to the bathroom to splash water on it so I wouldn't rip my skin. After my tongue was freed, I drank glass upon glass of water. I showered and when I returned to my room I cursed.

The time was 9:30, which means I had missed almost all of my first class and was in danger of being late for my second. I was worried that I hadn't noticed the time when I woke up to turn my alarm off, but I brushed it off as being overtired. I checked the clock to ensure I had set it for the right time. I had. My alarm had been going off for over two hours without waking me. This was just the beginning of my confusion.

I arrived at school with 10 minutes before class started. I walked in, and sat down. It was at this point that I realized I had no idea how I had got to school that morning. I sat and stared at the front of class for the next half hour.

I suddenly felt very woozy. I thought it might have been the dehydration again so I ran to the caf and got a powerade. I returned to class after finishing my powerade only to find that the class was on break. I sat against the wall trying to calm the swings in my mind.

My friend from class approached me and asked what was wrong. I told him that I had tried morphine last night and I wasn't feeling very well. It turns out when I had walked in that day, he had yelled my name several times but I failed to notice. In fact, I hadn't remembered seeing him in the class of just 15. We returned to class after I had bought my second powerade and I sat back down.

Almost immediately I felt the urge to vomit. For the second time, I bolted from my chair and ran to the bathroom. I fought the urge to vomit as I sat kneeling by the toilet. I finally felt slightly better and returned to class, grabbed my jacket and books and explained to my prof that I wasn't feeling well and had to leave.

I went home, this being at about 1:00pm. I realized I hadn't eaten anything all day, so I made a sandwich, ate it, and went to bed for a short nap. I woke up to see the time was 9:00. I cursed again. I had missed my guitar lesson that night (it turns out it didn't matter because my guitar teacher did morphine with me and was in similar shape) However, I was alarmed to see the sunlight pouring in my window. Sunlight at 9:00pm? In Canada? In the winter? I checked the time again more closely and saw that it was in fact 9:00am. I had slept for 19 hours without waking once. Now I was late again for school and horribly scared and confused by what had happened the previous day.

In short, morphine was a terrible time. The short term and, at best, moderate good feeling I had gotten from it was horrible overshadowed by my terrible experiences the next day. I will never try morphine again and it has made me seriously reconsider any type of pill.
