Background: I have many amazing experiences with many different substances. My belief in respect and caution for the substances I allow into my body, have made my experiences near perfect. My DOC is Heroin (smoked).

My first experiment with any substances, was nicotine (cigarette) with my friend “A” when I was 12. I didn’t really like it much, as I was a competative swimmer, and Lacrosse player. I found my lungs just couldn’t handle it.

I then got into weed along with cigarettes and dip (grizzly long cut) when I was about 17. I continued and got into the “party” scene and soon found myself having the time of my life. This continued until I was 19 when I first tried shrooms. Before having this substance, I studied the effects, and knew what I was going to get into when I would eat them. I had about 6-8 trips with shrooms within a two year span. After which, I got into pills and opiates heavily. I then got hooked up on H. when I couldn’t find any pills. I asked a close friend of mine if he knew anyone who would deal me pills. He said no, but simply stated, he had a hook up on H.

Now I am 21, I use H. sporadically, and on my days off from work.
I use H. sporadically, and on my days off from work.
I make a decent living, and control my use of this powerful substance.

12:15am: Its Saturday, I open my balloon and smile at the dark brown “ball o’ joy”. I decided to smoke it all (where I live, a balloon is only $20 and is about a gram; my dealer has great deals, and I usually opt for 3 balloons for $40, which lasts me the weekend). I quickly put the “blob” on the foil. I take my lighter, and take a huge hit while “running” the H. down the “boat” I created in the the foil. I hold in the smoke for about 15 seconds and exhale. I put on some music (The Roots, and Smiff n Wessen, and a couple Tool songs). I repeat this process until all the H. is gone; I usually get 16-20 hits from one balloon.

12:20am: The wonderful and comforting effects of H. begin to really kick in. I lay back, listen to the music and just enjoy the warmth. I feel social, hyper, and numb.

12:30am: I start feeling the effects of security, and a need to be active. So I get my dip (Grizzly) and get a fat lip of it. I then jump on Xbox Live and play Battlefield 3.

1:00am: After several matches off pure bliss in Battlefield, I switch over to Skyrim. I play for about 1 ½ hours and get the urge to get “down” again.

1:10am: I load some more H. on the foil, although this time I only take half of the balloon. I smoke it quickly, and jump on Skyrim to get lost in the world, and enjoy my few moments of pure ecstacy and bliss.

2:30am: I start to feel extremely tired and decide to do the rest of the H. I had. I load a full balloon, along with the other half of the other H. I smoke it all in about 28 hits. Instantly, I feel the warmth, and climax of the H.

3:15am: I feel extremely nauseous, but I have been here before and know what to do. I drink a full glass of water, and take 4 tums. It dulls the nausea for about 20 mins.

3:35am: I feel like I am going to throw up. So I run to the toilet, and begin vomiting for about 5 mins. I instantly feel amazing, and jump back onto Skyrim.

4:00am: I begin nodding out, and getting cross-eyed. For me this means I am done, and need to lay down.
I begin nodding out, and getting cross-eyed. For me this means I am done, and need to lay down.
So I get into my bed, turn on the tv and watch the science channel (Prophets of Science Fiction and Dark Matters).

4:50am: I quickly fall asleep, and go into a deep sleep.

The next morning, well afternoon (I awoke at 12:30pm) I feel surprisingly refreshed. I feel no need to do any more. But that quickly fades, and I call my dealer for one more balloon, and save it for Sunday night. I finish the balloon around 11:30pm on Sunday, and repeat what I did the night previously, but without as much H.

Overall, I can feel I am getting addicted, but I am strong willed, and have been only smoking on the weekends for about a year now. I have only had one withdraw, and it was out of stupidity. I quickly got over it though.

When Monday comes around, and I get to work, everything is dull and grey. But that only lasts for a few hours. I get through the week easily, without thinking about H. I know that I will be doing it on the weekend, but I don’t let that thought overwhelm my responsibilities.

I hope that I continue to control this substance. I have a connection with it, like a friend I can see on my days off. Harry and I have fun, and I never bring him to work. It is currently Thanksgiving morning right now, and I will not use at all. I will be with my family and friends, with plenty of food and drink. I can’t imagine anything better than that. But in the back of my mind, I can see Harry in my reach. Friday will come around, and I will call my dealer… and befriend Harry once again.
