To start off, I must say that before I try any drug, I must research it, that is the only way to be responsible. Next, I must know my own limitations, and basically, if I use common sense within the senselessness of snorting methamphetamine, then everything will be fine.

Anyhow, I was desperate one night and truly interested in trying new drugs, and a friend's friend's cousin was into dealing methamphetamine, so he gave me a free sample of pure crystal methamphetamine, it was actually crystal, so it was most definitely not cut with anything (I wouldn't buy any if it wasn't solid, I never trust chopped up stuff). So I took this home and in the morning got a clear glass plate and a guitar pick (since I didn't have a blade). I carefully chopped it up so it didn't shoot everywhere. The lines were really small but the methamphetamine was pure and made locally, and was strong. I then got a snorting utensil (part of a bic pen) and snorted very little at a time because I'm extremely careful, as should anybody trying meth for the first time.

The powder hit my sinuses and the burn was moderate, it wasn't unbearable, it really wasn't even too uncomfortable, but any pain that was there quickly subsided after about ten seconds into an excellent soothing feeling. Within the next five minutes of clearing my sinuses and draining the meth, the effects great to their height.

It really wasn't too intense, it was mellow, and waves of great euphoria and well-being washed over me much to my delight. I was immediately alert and ready for life and anything it had to throw at me.

One odd thing that I remember is when I was on the internet typing, I had urges to say absurd things such as, 'YOU DON'T KNOW LIFE!!! YOU DON'T KNOW LIFE!!!' and 'Buddy Holly wasn't there...'. Random thoughts entered my head but not violently, the whole experience was nice and soothing. I measured my heartrate to be safe and snorted another small line, another wave of euphoria. I remember being really happy and chatty, so the best thing to do was either go for a walk, or chat on the internet, so I got on the net, and everybody I saw I complimented, thats what I felt, I felt that it was my turn to give compliments to total strangers in the hopes of them feeling noticed. I respected everyone for who they were no matter what they were saying. Good feelings swept over me in waves, and there was an interim period of probably 2 minutes where I felt the meth in my head, but the waves had ceased, until another one came and rushed over me making me smile. Dancing was really fun as I did it in my computer chair to solid beats of modest mouse.

Then, I got mild visuals that usually were just blotches of light, or lack of light when I closed my eyes, they didn't make sense, however, everything looked like it was under water, the keyboard keys shifted in their places, which I found entertaining.

The come down is pretty much just me being really awake. I didn't sleep that whole night or the next day, my sentences had changed, and I started talking a little different, speaking more artistically as was my personality. The sentences stuck even after I had come all the way down. Methamphetamine left its imprint on my character for the good.

The only troubles were these:
1.) On the third time snorting, I got a bloody nose, which isn't good, but isn't anything to be over concerned about. I just cleaned it with a wet tissue and used the other nostril if I continued.
2.) The feeling is great, which naturally makes me want more...and more...fortunately, methamphetamine is pretty cheap, but unfortunately, it's pretty damn addictive.

So I say, if you think you will get addicted and won't have the control to quit, I suggest you don't even try it. Use common sense, if we are all responsible with everything, then there will be no problems.
