Not What I Expected

  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.]

This was my first experience with heroin. I have been using vicodin, percocet, and poppy pod tea for the past two years. My frequency of use usually followed something along the lines of me obtaining vicodin or percocet, using it heavily for a few days to one week, and then running out and not having them again for 2 weeks to 1 month. Then in the time I did not have access to those drugs, I would use poppy pod tea a couple days a week. That lead to me eventually starting to combine using vicodin and percocet, then combining percocet and poppy pod tea. I have never experienced withdrawals (no fever, aches or pains of any kind).
I have never experienced withdrawals (no fever, aches or pains of any kind).
My tolerance level for perocet is getting pretty high (I need about 80-90mg to nod out) and that was getting expensive. So purchased .4 of Heroin from a person I have know for a while and tried it tonight. I was expecting a fantastic high, one that would be better then any percocet high I have ever had.

T:00 Snorted .1 grams (tasted like gasoline)
T:05 Felt like I snorted a couple percocet
T:10 Snorted another .1 grams
T:15 The high is ok but not that strong
T:20 Snorted another .1 grams
T:25 The high is a little stronger, feels like I snorted about 40mg of percocet
T:30 Snorted another .1 grams
T:35 The high has peaked, I did not nod out and was not anywhere near as high as I was expecting to get. It did feel like I snorted about 50mg of percocet so I got higher then I would using just percocet but all in all in my opinion Heroin is a drug that has been demonized for little reason. I will definently attempt a larger initial dosage next time.
