Hydrocodone is, easily, my favorite drug of them all. While I'm fairly seasoned in the art of drug usage, it all began one unremarkable day in November when I initiated myself into the pleasures of Vicodin in the form of 20mg. The experience wasn't particularly mindblowing, with the usual euphoria, warmth, and ease of social interaction, as well as an unusual (at least for hydrocodone) amount of pressure in the general head and ears area (anyone who's taken heroin is likely familiar with the sensation, which isn't entirely pleasant but something that I sometimes missed in my later experimentation), but it was very nearly the best introduction to drugs I could hope to have. Unlike many people who start with alcohol or weed, I had a great, great experience.

Hydrocodone is not always a pleasant thing, though. Though I've never had a problem with the actual experience, which is always wonderful, a couple of times hangover has struck, especially after a dosage which is significantly higher than my typical dosage. My memories of those days are hazy and incomplete and possibly some of the most miserable of my life. My personal feeling is that the occasional hangover is the price you pay for boosting the dose too quickly, and so once they're over I can accept them.

The most profound effect of hydrocodone on me was not the temporary happiness and warmth, pleasant as they were. Hydrocodone awakened some part of me which had laid dormant beforehand - my experience with it as a social lubricant carried into my sober life as well, and since using this drug I have had a constant sense of well-being which has motivated me to go above and beyond what I was before and become a measurably better person

. I have the feeling that the two months of heavy usage, especially over that year's Christmas break, broke some tension in me that I carried as a residual of previous, well, nerdiness and getting bullied.
