  repeated insufflated Heroin (powder / crystals)


[Erowid Note: Because opiate use can lead to significant tolerance (requiring higher doses for the same effects), the dose used by a first time user is significantly smaller than that used by a regular user. It can be extremely dangerous to choose ones dose on the basis of the amount taken by someone else. Overdoses of opiates can be fatal.]

My first experience was pretty much overrated to say the least. Before I tried it for the first time I spent about two hours at a website reading all the amazing things people wrote on the effects of heroin after using. I was very excited to be able to seek this so called thrill.

A quick background on me. I just started dabbling with opiates about a year ago. I am now 21. It started out with hydrocodone and then later on led to about 4 80mg of oxycontin a day over the year span. I guess you could say I got addicted pretty easily.

So anyways I decided to step up and try heroin for the fist time. I paid $150 and got 10 capsules with some brown powder in it that were to snort. I tried out one and felt a lil bit but not much. Like taking 3 10 mg of hydocodone. I took another one about 5 minutes later and then I could finally see what was so great about it but was still not overwhelmed, and not to mention the euphoric feeling still only lasted 20-30 minutes. I was not impressed. So I took my third capsule which I could barely even notice. It seemed like everytime I would snort another capsule the high would last shorter each time and then I would just have a headache from my nose hurting so much. Anyways I ended taking all the capsules throughout the night with less of a euphoric feeling each time. Now I know the stuff I got was probably some of the worst money can buy but I was still expecting more than that. I'm gonnna try it again this weekend and supposively get some stuff that is 10 times better. Hopefully the stuff I got was just complete shit and that wasnt the real deal,and if it is I dont know what the huge hype is all about
