1 shot IV Heroin (powder / crystals)
Breif history; For the past few years of my life I have wildly experimented with almost every street sold drug and over the counter drugs that could get me high. I went after drugs myself, never pressured or offered to me. I smoke daily, don't drink and I'm very healthy overall. Before this event, I had been one full year clean after my boyfriend going away to rehab for 4 months; this was us celebrating.

We decided to go with a little one over 1 gram of heroin, which costed us $110.00 (CN). We went downtown to call Safeworks (a van that gives clean drug equipment for prevention of spreading disease) we got 7 syringes, 4 cookers, 2 stretch bands, 20 packaged wet wipes, 30 cotton filters, drug help info and 2 lollipops. We picked up the heroin, and headed home. We wanted a safe, quiet, calm, trusted place to be so we stayed at my house and waited until everyone was asleep. This was my first time injecting heroin, and was my boyfriends 8th or so.

We set up my room with lots of blankets on my bed to keep warm, put a couple candles on both night side tables, got a lighter, opened 2 syringes, put extra sweaters on so our veins wouldnt dissapear, got large cups of water and a few water bottles, got the cookers out... and we were set.

First we crushed the rock of heroin into powder (it was a creamy white colour), then divided the heroin into our cookers; an amount we thought we could both handle. Pulled back a small amount of water into each syringe, then slowly put the water over each little pile of heroin, watching it dissolve. We put the cooker over the lighter and watched the water bubble until it was clear again and no powder left. We didn't use a filter because it looked very clear and there wasn't any specks of things in the water inside the cooker.

The First of Injecting Smack

I was extremely nervous, but thrilled and excited. I tied up my arm, got a vein right away, pulled back on the syringe, got blood, and injected. I didn't know how to feel, and I was wondering strait away, when the feeling was gunna start? It happened so immediately I didn't have time to finish the thought.

It literally took about 7 seconds for my body to feel completely different. My chest felt like it was caving in, my breathing felt suppressed, I felt warm, my body felt utterly amazing. Each part of my body felt a little love, my fingertips vibrated, I felt a wave of intense calmness. My eyes rolled back, all I wanted to do was lay there in my bed, cuddle and feel this intriguing trip. It was intense, fantastic and to me, no other drugs compare for a complete body high. I felt constant lovely emotion, and wanted to tell my boyfriend constantly how much I loved him and how happy I felt. The feelings of love were like MDMA (ecstasy). The body high was uncomparable to any other drug. The sight for me was comparable to ketamine.

During the night, the only negitive thing I had happen, was that I got nauseous whenever I moved too much. I puked about 6 times and didn't feel too good the next day. It felt sort of like a drinking hangover with the headache and all, and I didn't want to eat either. Other than that, that was the best trip of my life.

Heroin is now something I do almost every weekend, and is probably the most addicting thing I've ever experienced in my life.
