T+ 0:00
50 mg IV Methamphetamine (liquid)
  T+ 0:30 150 mg smoked Methamphetamine (powder / crystals)


My drug experience is pretty extensive, at least compared to people that I know. Heroin, cocaine, crack, ecstacy, pills of all sorts colors shapes & sizes, benzos, psychedelics of all types, methadone, all used rigoursly both by themselves and in all sorts of combinations and methods (smoking, insufflation, IV, IM, etc). But I am inexperienced when it comes to the substance called methamphetamine, mostly due to the stigma surrounding both the drug and its users.

My roommate owed me $20 for some coke I that I had lent him on credit. Yesterday he had traded an old laptop (that he didnt need or use anymore, he isnt a junkie [anymore]) for a load of beautiful meth from a friend that recently started slinging. Nice, large shards. Obviously made with quality in mind. I opted to take a dub for ice instead of cash as I was a curious about this drug. It is the only hard drug I hadn't used. I say every MOA in the title, even though I didn't plug or eat it, and I stand by that because I say that both of those routes are a waste of good and clean shards so I chose to ignore them. Plus I don't like putting things in my butt , its exit only.

Starting quantity approximately .2g high quality methamphetamine.

T+0h0m :: I started out by IV'ing about .05g. Slight increase in heartrate is felt about one minute in, nothing major. My friend had told me that methamphetamine, when IV'd, takes longer to come on compared to cocaine IV'd, which weirded me a bit, but guess thats how it works.

T+0h10m-30m :: Within the next 20 minutes following a 10 minute break to let the effects occur, I proceeded to smoke the remaining .15g off foil in small bumps. Very light rush, again nothing major.

Thinking maybe I needed a larger hit to feel something, I gave him a few bucks for a large hit.

T+0h45m :: I smoked a larger bit, all in one hit, held it in, and released. A little bit of a rush, albeit still small, nothing lasting.

T+1h0m :: I end the session snorting a line that he gave me (0.05g), still nothing impressive.

T+1h30m :: Write this TR...heartrate slightly elevated, but nothing impressive. Fiending for some sort of real rush. Call cocaine connect, he should come through later .

From what I've read and been told though, there is some cross-tolerance between cocaine and methampetamine. I usually have a coke session at least one night a week, mostly two though, where I usually will use between a gram and 1.5. I had an IV cocaine session two nights before this where I IV'd 1.5 grams of primo blow and this seems to have had an effect on tonights experiment. That, my friends, is what we call a variable LOL. I may try this another time in the future, if I happen to get a heavier sack of ice, to properly try it out the right way (in binge fashion), but doubt that will happen as I'd rather spend money on other things. I can get it relatively cheap for Atlanta prices since our friend recently started selling it, but he also slings the best girl I've ever used, and cocaine seems to have more off the effects that I look for .

Be safe, know your body, know your drug, know your dose.
