A friend of mine returned from a large western city to escape an addiction to crack. One hot summer night as we were driving past the open air drug market(ghetto) in our town he remarked that he could probably score some rocks in five minutes or less. I had some money and unfortunately am one of those people who simply can't resist a new thrill. I had done powder lots of times but really never had a connection-which was good. Anyway we get 40 bucks together and park on the absolutely worst street in town and my friend gets out. Within 3 minutes he's back with crack. I couldn't believe it I was so excited I thought I would shit myself(that really is the feeling I get) he checked out the tinfoil and said we had been ripped off hard. We went back and he confronted the guy and got what he felt was fair.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]

We returned to the apartment and found some brillo for his stem. Anxiously I tried the first toke and although it got me high it was not the bomb I expected. The second one was better and soon we were out and in the car for more. I was shocked at the cost yet powerless over wanting more. We were expected to go to a party and didn't really feel like going but we were committed. We had one last blast on the way to the party and felt like shit when we got there. I drank straight whiskey to come down as I felt miserable. I ended up getting sick. However we repeated the routine several more times each time getting more crack and more wasted. I did some of the stupidest things I have ever done in my life on this shit and would have to say that the comedown is comparable to attending a funeral for everyone you love in the same day.

I still can't totally stop. I get cravings the worst when drunk and can't seem to get past 2 weeks clean. Overall this shit doesn't make me happier and certainly hiding from the world cracked out of my tree having a panic attack everytime the phone rings or I hear footsteps in the hall isn't really 'partying'. This drug made a robot and a slave of me.
