2 lines insufflated Cocaine (powder / crystals)


I've been smoking weed for quite a while now. I started about at the start of 2004.

And while many stubborn users claim that marijuana isnt a gateway drug, I gotta say, it was for me. When I first smoked marijuana, it piqued a whole new curiosity within me.

Since the day I smoked weed, I've tried shrooms, acid, oxycontin, and quite a few different pills. However, the taboo on cocaine was more then me and my friends could bare to get past until a few weeks ago. Out of the blue, I arrived at my friends apt. on January 31st only to find them talking about buying some cocaine.

At that point, only one of my three other friends had tried it. But he'd done quite a lot in his time he said. Well, call me a peer pressure bitch, but I succumbed when my friends acquiesced first. So off we went to pick up a bag of white.

I won't go into detail, but to put it bluntly, the first night sucked. We only had about .6 grams between the four of us. Translation: we got coke teased BADLY. My friends actually started doing white a lot more after this, but I stopped comepletely until...

About a week ago, my friend J asks me if I want to do it again. I'm dumb, so I said yes. An hour later, There we are, in his dining room, cutting up lines. This time, he told me to do two at the beginning instead of one. Having done this, I finally realized what all the fuss was about. I felt energized, happy (very happy), sociable, and, this is the kicker, very clear minded and clairevoyant. For me in particular, this ease of thought and cognition was simply astounding. Another interesting thing to note was that as soon as I had done the lines, for some reason, I just wanted more. My friend told me that this was very common, as people who are wired often want more and more while they are yakked.

The comedown, well, it was different then I thought it would be. It was no hangover to be sure (thank god), but the fact is, I just felt soooo bored, but couldn't sleep. Now that think about, it was worse than a hangover, its not as if I want more cocaine at the time, but the feeling of not being able to pass out when I want, well, its fairly maddening.

Altogether, we had about a half a gram each and stayed up for about 9 hours. (We had weed by the way, the stuff helps make the experience a little better, IMHO).

I won't bore you with any big revelations from my experience.
