Not All That.

I'm 35, professional, generally successful guy.
Sat around with my pals this 'hump day' evening and drank about 6 beers over a period of about 4 hours. Shared a gram of cocaine for the last 3 hours. This is fairly typical for me, about once a week. Left my friends apartment about 2:10 am. It's a kinda shady neighborhood, and when I walked out a guy asked if I needed anything, and I responded that I'd go for $20 worth of weed, as I had been bummed out that I was about to come down without any weed. He asked for $20 then, and he said 'we'll do a hand shake', so I put it in my and, and slipped it to his, but got nothing back, then he says 'wait here' and I''m really bummed that I just gave him money before getting the drugs as the exchange I expected didn't happen like that. I'm sure I'm getting taken now. For some reason, I say, 'I'll be following you, and after showing I was going to be persistent, - and a few more odd moments- he ended up giving me this rock. After almost getting my cash stolen, and something of a 'skirmish', it all turned out okay, except that I ended up with a crack rock instead of green buds. I'm sure I got ripped off, but I decided that as long as that's what I got, I may as well smoke it.
I get home 2:45. As I don't know what the dosage should be, I split my little rock into 3rds and put it in a pipe on top of some tobacco (no weed remember) and I took a good sized hit, I guess I felt a certain rush (keep in mind that I quit smoking a month back, and I'll likely get a good nicotine buzz at the same time), and remember that I still have a little high going from the snorted coke from less than an hour earlier. I am (This takes me up to right now) a little more awake, but a little sleepy too. It is without a doubt crack though, as I've smoked coke sprinkled on weed before just out of curiosity, and though it didn't do much, it had a very specific chemical smell, and the rock I just smoked smelled exactly the same. I'm sure it's not just coke in rock form, so it must be crack.
The high is not super noticeable. My heart rate is high, but not through the roof. 132 bpm (I just measured). I've smoked almost all of it now in about 1/2 hour -I've been writing on and off-. my muscles are somewhat tense, I'm jaw clinching just a bit, but not like on MDMA or the like. I feel pleasant enough, it's 3:30 and I don't want to go to sleep yet. I'm not high like I'll never forget though. I can't see feeling that I would need/want to do this to the point of addiction. I've had friends say 'if you try it. you'll never go back', but I have to say that I don't see/feel that. I've taken 5 hits, it's all gone, I've felt the need every 10 minutes or so (though I can't define the 'need', it's vague, just think I'd like another for some reason, and then I do.
3:50 now, 20ish minutes after the last hit. Tired. Gonna spell check and lay down.
