Taste Like Vinegar, Feels Similar to XanaX

  smoked Heroin (tar / resin)
    smoked Tobacco - Cigarettes  


This is a recent experience with me smoking heroin (black) for the first time, via chasing on folded aluminum, inhaling through a cut straw.

A little background info. I am a male in my 20ís around 230lbs and have been drinking, smoking weed, and tripping on DXM heavily since I turned 18. Previous experiences are MDMA (yellow crystal around 500mg), Dextromethorphan (upwards of 1800mg in a 36 hour period), salvia (never broke through with 30x extracts), spice, nitrous, Meth, butane, poppy seed tea, Xanax, and kratom.

While chasing the black, there was a slightly sweet taste, but it was overpowered by a pungent Vinegar-like taste and aroma. The tar bubbled similar to hash, but unlike hash it didnít keep itself lit, and sizzled into a dark brown puddle. The high itself felt similar to Xanax, being heavy eyes, an increase in temperature, relaxed muscles, euphoria, pain resistance, with some added nausea. I took around 10 hits. Smoking cigarettes felt natural, and it made the high feel stronger. While smoking, I burned my thumb a little, but didnít even care since I was feeling good (the same thing that happens with meth). I had a little bit of a stagger in my walk, similar to a moderate amount of alcohol. I felt good, but the euphoria wasnít as head strong as say meth or MDMA by a longshot.

I was just walking around at night, enjoying music and feeling the breeze on my face. After about 2 hours, I felt tired enough to sleep, so I walked back home and layed down. But I was still feeling nauseous, and after an hour of laying down trying to sleep, I puked twice, then immediately felt a little better, and managed to sleep after another 30 minutes or so. In comparison to a large dose of poppy seed tea, I noticed that the poppy tea actually made me much more itchy, however there was little difference in strength or nausea. It was a decent high, but I still would take bars and smoke weed any day over opiates. Stay safe.
