11 years ago I was big into Meth. I quit shortly before getting married and starting my family. 5 years ago or so I found a baggie of meth and did some with a friend. I found that while although the initial feeling of meth is always enjoyable, the side effects that follow are very undesirable and given my status at the time of having a family and good job, I didn't pursue the drug further.

So take me to now, where I'm on a business trip to San Diego. I hopped over to Mexico to get a hold of some Oxy's, having gotten some 10mg the last time I was out here and really enjoying them. The shopkeeper told me his list of items he had, and Crystal Meth was one of them. Being taken off guard and thinking back to the feelings I felt as smoking it, and my depressed state lately from separating with my wife, I decided to buy up 4 grams worth along with my Oxys.

Two days ago I did some meth for a while. Really not a smart thing to do on a business trip the day before working with a client. I started having those flu like feelings one has during the crash, and felt horrible the next day. I did a little bit more to take the edge off, and while coming down off of it I felt horribly depressed
I started having those flu like feelings one has during the crash, and felt horrible the next day. I did a little bit more to take the edge off, and while coming down off of it I felt horribly depressed
and realized that the meth days were for back when I was 17, with little responsibility and it didnít matter if I lost my job because I lived with my parents. Now that Iím 27 and have a killer job, thatís just not the right drug to be doing.

So the last bit of meth I did was last night around 7:30 PM. I managed to get some sleep, go to work today feeling a little bit better still coughing, sore throat and tongue sores. This morning I had taken prescribed Tramadol 50mg x2 and Ĺ a 10mg Lortab. Now at 5:30 PM I decided to try the Oxyís I had bought the other day. They didnít have 10mg or 20mg, and only had 40mg. I have been really hesitant about the jump, even though my weight would probably put me at a safe spot for taking it. After much reading online, I decided to crush the pill and rail half of it to start.

I was also a bit hesitant to take it because of my increased heart rate from still slightly coming off of the meth. I was not sure if the effects of the Oxy would be well noticed if I am coming down from an upper. The Tramadol and the Lortab feeling was noticeable, although not as much as normal, so I didnít want to waste the experience. Anyway, I had difficulty in figuring out how to get the pill crushed within my hotel room. 10 mg Oxys donít seem to have the protective film over them so they were easier to crush. I tried cutting the pill in half which sent them soaring because I did it with the end of tweezers instead of a razor blade. I also performed the operation on the computer desk instead of a mirror. After sending pieces all over the place, and working really hard to remove the film, I finally got the powder into a pile and crushed with the room key card. Hopefully I hadnít lost too much of the drug. I was only going to do half, so I figured it shouldnít be too bad. I broke the pile up into 4 lines, and railed 2 of them.

10 minutes go by, and Iím not sure that Iím really feeling anything. I finally decide to do a 3rd line and itís now been about 35 minutes since I started doing any of it. Itís hard to explain how I feel right now. I donít think Iím really feeling that euphoric sense of well being that everyone talks about having when they do these. I am relaxed, and mellow, but Iím not sure that itís anymore than how I feel when on the Tramadol and Lortab. I am now staring at the last line, trying to determine what to do with it. I fear doing the last line because Iím afraid the overall experience is tainted from coming down off of the meth. Itís hard to say.

Iím also more curious how taking the pill would be without crushing it, as well as fearful as I already was fearful of railing more than 10mg. I mean, Iím jumping from having done 10mg the last time I took these to doing 40mg. To me, that feels quite extreme and I donít feel as invincible as I once did in High school where Iíd say, ďBring it onĒ. I fear the unknown, especially when there are so many factors involved here such as the coming off of the meth.

I will probably just down the last line since honestly I canít imagine what Iíd do with it while Iím at my client tomorrow. Itís too difficult to try to scrape it off into a baggie or anything.
