First of all, I want to say that I don't necessarily condemn this drug, because I've had lots of fun times on it. However, I will not/can not ever do the drug again, and heres a short synopsis of why.
Myself and 2 other friends had been up blowing coke all night, and well into the next day. Early evening rolled in, and I needed to be home fairly soon, but I wanted to show off some scratching on the turntables before I had to go. I went and did another bump, and returned to the decks. I set up the record and waited for it to get where I wanted it.
The next thing I was conscious of was lying face up in an ambulance. I had no idea what was going on, so I asked the paramedic. He said I'd 'done a little bit too much cocaine, had a siezure, hit my head on a mirror, and blacked out for a good 10 minutes.' I proceeded to spend the next 4 hours in the ER, being administered valium, oxygen, and some other stuff intravenously.
Unfortunately, my episode also caused my two other friends to get 'busted' for doing coke (not by police, just in general.). So now that I've been released, and am alive and breathing.
