DOSE:
  repeated insufflated Heroin (powder / crystals)

BODY WEIGHT: 145 lb


Drug experience includes mostly hallucinogens (LSD, Shrooms, 2C-B, Mescaline most of the 2nd class 2c's I,e,c,d, dmt, 3-aco-dmt, a bunch or research chems, mdma, mda, mdai, bk-mdma, mephedrone, amphetamine, nitrous oxide, ketamine, dxm, and heroin) + various pharmies.

Just to note I have never IV'ed heroin this overdose was due to snorting half a gram of dope cut with fentanyl (unknown at the time).

My friend J and I were sitting on a couch at a party when he looked at me and asked me why my eyes were so dark and why I looked so fucked up. I informed him that I started doing dope again, he stared at me with a disappointed look and we continued to sit and watch everyone be drunk and scurry around. Routinely, about ever 10 min or so I would go to the bathroom and cut myself a fat line of dope. After about the 4th visit to the bathroom I was feeling pretty strange but did not recognize the coming overdose.
I was feeling pretty strange but did not recognize the coming overdose.
I sat on the couch and asked my friend E if I could lay on her lap, she agreed and that was the last thing that I remember. Apparently I started having chest and throat spasms and J and E started to worry as I was unconscious, I stopped breathing and started to turn blue and white. J and E started panicking and our friend S rushed over to help. J and S carried me into the car to go to the hospital, they continued to slap me and yell at me to wake up but I wouldent.

As we were speeding towards the hospital I came to and was very confused, 'Are we at McDonalds yet?' I asked, 'dude you were about to fucking die we were on our way to the hospital' said J, they had informed me about what happened and I just asked them to take me back to the party so I could get my shoes and shit and then go home.

Since that night I now suffer from peripheral nerve damage on the inside of my arm by my armpit meaning I no longer can feel anything in that area, luckily that is all that happened. It could have been allot worse. Even though I've done my fair share of research I had no idea it was so easy to overdose. Others had warned me, but I'm a stubborn one and for some reason needed to experience it myself. Let this be a warning.
