  1 bowl smoked Cannabis (plant material)
My first, and only, experience with crack cocaine began as I was walking back to my hotel in a tourist town. I was alone, as my friends had stayed out to go dancing, and I was stone cold sober. Two men approached me out of nowhere asking if I wanted ecstasy and I asked them if they had any heroin. They said they could get it and I walked with them to their car to go to the dealer. On the way, they convinced me to try crack instead since it was “cheaper and way better”.

We parked in a sketchy part of town and an intimidating man handed one of the men I was with a small bag and we went off to my hotel room. While one of the men shook uncontrollably, the other man began bending up an empty beer can and told us to start chain smoking cigarettes.

Before long, the pipe was ready, we covered the main hole up with ash, and put a big crack rock on top. I took the first hit and the second I exhaled after 10 seconds of holding in the smoke, I felt like I had truly never felt before. I felt like a tsunami of happiness crashed into my brain and my body became rigid. I packed up rock after rock while one of the men vomited in the toilet and the other man shook uncontrollably until I gave him yet more hits. I ended up taking six or seven hits and felt unbelievably amazing.

About five minutes after my last hit, I began scrounging on our carpet because I thought it was littered with dropped crack rocks. It wasn’t at all and one of the men told me to stop freaking out. The other bent down and searched too. We all began to talk about getting more and the men begged me to throw down forty more, but I told them I didn’t have any. We smoked a bowl of weed on the balcony overlooking the ocean and, after that, I felt more calmed down but still wired. We went to a bar and I felt so messed up that I left after a short time, went back to my room, and layed awake on my bed for 45 minutes wondering why on Earth I had just smoked crack. It was amazing, but the next few hours and day were filled with an intense craving to buy more. I’m glad I never bought more.
