  repeated insufflated Cocaine (powder / crystals)
I first tried coke in college. I was very experimental back then.

I am not a big time coke user, mainly because my friends don't do it regularly and I don't have access to it. But when I have coke, I have absolutely no control over the usage. The cocaine high is, in one word, 'desire.' I think the 'high' is actually the sensation of the drug wearing off. So as soon as I'm high, I'm sobering up.

Here is how I get my money's worth:

- Eat. Doing coke on an empty stomach will make me feel unhungry and jittery. It is a complete waste of the high -- Coke doesn't give you energy, it increases my burn rate, so to speak. If I don't have anything to burn, I won't get high.

- Be READY for the come down. I have to understand that the people I am with feel as crappy as I do, and that my feelings during this come down are the natural result of the good feelings I just had. Sometimes it's best to just veg out in front of the TV.

- I don't like using alcohol to ease the come down because it usually results in more coke. After a line it's easier to drink, adter a drink it's easier to do a line.

- Smoking some pot can bring the good feelings back for a while and really take the edge off the come down. But I am a pot addict.

I will never have enough cocaine. There is no such thing as enough. The only thing this drug can teach me is that I have less control than I think -- and there are cheaper ways to learn that lesson.
