Not Bad but Not Good
Tobacco - Cigarettes

1 cig. smoked Tobacco - Cigarettes
To begin, I'm not a total amateur in the psychoactive arena. Since I was small I've been smoking pot, and I've branched out into some stimulants, alcohol, an opiate or two...but I've always been proud to never really get hooked on anything. And until very recently I was able to say that I'd never tried tobacco (strange when every friend I know who uses drugs is usually a cig fiend).

I figured, what the hell, I'll smoke one and see what its like. Light it up... smoke a little harsh, but nothing my pot-friendly lungs can't handle. A few puffs in and I'm feeling pleasantly light headed. A few more and wow, this is like a pot buzz that I'd get when young. This is great! I finish the cig and stumble (a little) inside to enjoy my pleasurable state of mind.

No sooner said than my stomach says 'fuck you buddy.' Its not a full blown nausea, just a twinge in the stomach and those gross half-burps I get when I feel like puking. I grab some water and sit, hoping it'll just pass. It doesn't. So much for the happy high, I'm lightheaded but the nausea sucks.

Maybe I'm just a pussy, maybe I would need to just smoke more often, or maybe thats just how the drug is, but my aversion to smoking still stands. I'll stick to Mistress J and her nausea solving problems rather than a bunch of chemicals in by a big company.
