First Time for Coke
Allow me to begin by saying this is the first time I have done cocaine.
Me and a buddy, who had done cocaine once previously, heard of some coke for sale in town. We jumped on the offer and within 30 minutes were driving to an apartment to pick up or portion.
Together we purchased 1 gram for $90. After dividing the coke up I was left with .25 grams for myself.
Before purchasing the drug the dealer offered a line to allow us to test it before we buy. Although I'd never done it before, I had a happy-do-lucky attitude and acted like a seasoned prop when I downed a small line of the substance.
I expected the powder to sting, somewhat expecting it to be similar to snorting Vicodin. However, it was not unpleasant at all to my surprise, and within one minute my right nostril was numb.
Although this was technically the first time, it was the following day that I consider my true first time with coke.
Me and another few friends downed the remaining powder. I estimate my dose to be around 0.15 grams.
Upon doing my last line, I began to get a head rush and wanted to lay on my bed. We put on some Doors music and everyone doing to coke either got up and danced or just sat and chilled.
Although definitely a speed, it had sort of a CNS depressant feel to it. I was able to concentrate very well, and my mind was calm and collected, however my body felt sluggishly happy to sit and relax.
In conclusion, I find cocaine to be far more dangerous and expensive for my tastes, and quite honestly my experience was not half as intense as some other drugs I've done, like MDMA.
I feel myself seem to want more of the substance, which supports the fact of cocaine's high level of addiction, however for such a price both financially and from a health standpoint, cocaine was a one-time thing for me.
Perhaps later in my life I shall meet with this drug again, but I have no intention of buying anymore or taking it for recreation.
It was well worth the knowledge I have acquired though.
