I've tried a few different drugs throughout my life, all have their own stories for another time. And to be honest, alcohol and spice (k2, whatever, I simply call it shit) has been the worst to my life and hardest to break. I know I have an addictive personality and have a few different stories but this is my spice k2 story:

I started smoking pot when I was about 15, that helped me with an eating disorder. And obviously it's just enjoyable to me. I love smoking some weed when I'm relaxing playing video games or reading my books, hiking, exploring nature, meditating, etc.

When I was 18 my sources for weed were dry at the time and my friends wanted to smoke. They convinced me to buy some spice from some dude they had heard of selling it and said it was just like Marijuana. Even though my gut told me not to buy into it, I made the mistake of trusting them that it was completely safe and went to buy it. We (my friend, and another friend and me) sat in a little space up in an attic and loaded it into my pipe. I took one huge hit (was supposed to be like Marijuana, right? I was a pretty heavy smoker at that point so the hit was huge and held proper *cringe*). I passed it and started laughing, no idea why just like somebody made a funny joke which made the other two laugh. The pipe back in my hand I took a huge hit...

I was nothing, I still was but I was nothing and didn't have any knowledge of who, what, where, when, why or how or anything whatsoever. It was just dark nothingness. It felt like a lifetime of just pure black abyss. I was oddly content but something wasn't right and I knew I wasn't supposed to be there but I didn't know anything at all. This is so hard to explain so sorry if you don't understand, hell, I don't even understand it.

All of a sudden what reminded me of picture stills started flashing and It was like I was pulled through one and back into my life, my life started flashing back to me in a manner like "oh yeah that's who I am and I'm a human blah blah and that's my name and I do that". It was the creepiest shit. I opened my eyes to my friend freaking the fuck out but they were still laughing. He said "you were out cold and not breathing for awhile what the fuck don't fuck with us like that".

I assured him I was not "fucking with him" and told them that shit is not like Marijuana and nobody should be smoking the shit, (that's what it is, shit, you can't replace Mary Jane with chemicals) and I then grabbed it and ran. I had to go down a ladder. I remember feeling as if I was in a super Mario-like world. I went in my room and I was completely shocked that I could take my shoes off. Then I was terrified I was gonna be living in 2D and nothing felt "real". I was questioning everything and had to lay down and sleep.

Thankfully that shit wore off. But what's even more fucked up is I craved it and ended up addicted to it for about 3 months until I moved to a different town and didn't know where to get it. Thank goodness. Fuck that shit.

I also went into a kind of psychosis for the last 2 weeks. And during the whole time I smoked it my brother and a few friends were telling me I looked and acted like a complete zombie. I even lost some friends because of it and I didn't care at all while I was on it. I was smoking it constantly and I'd promise myself when I ran out that was it but nope I'd be picking more up and smoking before I even realised it. Also I got mild migraines after smoking k2 and still get them to this day, I am 25 now.

I've always felt a bit "slower" after smoking it and it changed my perception of life forever.

When I started smoking weed again (I quit smoking weed for a year after smoking spice) I would get panic attacks from remembering the effects of spice and I'd hyperventilate. Just thought I'd share my experience with the rest of the world. Because that dark empty nothingness still haunts me as well as the effects of the k2.

I've been sober from everything for a little over 2 years. With the exception of Marijuana. I guess that's just the only "drug" that's never harmed my life nor my mind. I love Marijuana again even though it took a whole year of getting used to and finally stopped getting panic attacks. 
Spice = shit , idc what anyone says, it is evil. Just smoke the real plant!
