No, you pretty much got it, right there. The thing is that it often filled me with a sensation that something fairly special and cool was just about to happen, and that thing was....

that me and my friend(s) were going to do more cocaine.

Which would make us feel like something fairly special and cool was about to happen, and that thing was...

that me and my friend(s) were going to do more cocaine.

Which would make us feel.... repeat until drugs are gone.

Because we were special and cool. And had cocaine.

I'm not saying it's NECESSARILY bad, just that cocaine is one of the blue button monkey drugs. I think blue button monkey drugs can be a real drag once the aperture through which you see the world narrows down to just the big blue button.

funny thing. gave up the tobacco a bit before Xmas and sought alternative means of delivering dope to my brain. tobacco substitutes for doobies and bongs worked well enough.

my supply of the goodies is intermittent and i found myself buying some legal high off a mate who reckoned he preferred it to regular dope. his recommendation was good enough for me. tried it and it worked. definitely got me off my face. but i haven't bothered since the first time because it doesn't smell and taste anything like regular dope. made me realise just how much the pleasure of smoking is bound up with things other than simply feeling high.

just mentioned that because of Patrick's post above and the allure of the ritual. that's why doobs will always beat bongs for me - the construction process and the passing round is an integral part of the ritual which i associate with getting stoned.

now will someone please send me their unwanted coke? one of you haters has to have a "never again" wrap stashed somewhere. or did you give it to the local orphans?

Rhod, I love you.

But right now you have just suggested the concept of 'leftover cocaine.'

And that's some funny shit. Right there. Yep.

No one does cocaine. You realize that, right?

It works like this:

do you do cocaine?
no.

I have some.

YOU DO???

And then you both (or three) do cocaine until it's gone. Then you go back to not doing cocaine any more, since it's horrible stuff, who would do it? Destroys creativity, it's evil... The devil's dandruff, and all that, etc.

Until someone who fancies you says "I have some" again.

circle_ruler wrote:it was some time in the mid 90s and me, bro and a man called Geoffrey Winton who now lives in Wrexham pooled our meagre income support and bought some coke. i'd never had it before and it was a massive, massive treat.

we went to our dealer and got the goodies. due to police activity my duty as the copilot was to put the little paper wraps "somewhere personal" so in the event of a search bro wouldn't be in the firing line - he'd been lucky to get away with a caution on a previous occasion. so i stuffed the wraps down my socks and forgot about them...

... and went fishing.

the true consequences of this didn't become apparent until we, in a state of eager anticipation, disinterred the wraps later that evening. i had been wearing wellingtons on the beach and inevitably a small amount of water had overtopped them thus rendering my socks quite damp. i think i was the first to realise the implications as i rooted around for the soggy bundles and my look of horror was soon mirrored on my bro's and Geoffrey Winton's face.

briefly i was the possessor of possibly the most valuable pair of socks in Wales, if not the world. what remained of the coke was handed over to my colleagues as i forwent my share other than one little bit rubbed on my gums (snorting was out of the question, you'll understand). i did briefly consider sucking on my socks but they were unappetising to say the least.

that, motherfuckers, is why i want some coke. let me be the judge of whether it's shit or not. and as for the problems associated with heavy usage, i dream of having a job capable of delivering the necessary cash and would use it only for good things in any case.


This is like Trainspotting, if it took place in Wales instead of Scotland and was about blow instead of smack.

Make no mistake- I am not advocating cocaine use. I lost more to blow than I'd care to tabulate here. I'm just trying to put the real experience out there in as honest a terms as I can without the sort of moralizing that most folks resort to when they talk about drugs.

It's a repetitive drug that is the very apex of compulsive behavior. It'll make you paranoid and impotent in high enough doses. It also gives you a head of steel when it comes to drinking alcohol, so you can drink yourself to death more easily than you'd think.

It has a unique ability to spackle in the gaps one perceives in one's self-image, making the things that bug you the most about yourself vanish into the rearview mirror for a little while. I think that's maybe part of the compulsion to keep doing it, because as you hit the down side of the arc of the cocaine high, you can feel your paunch, bad haircut, questionable taste and your inarticulateness in conversations with teh ladeez coming roaring back up on you. The fact that it makes your insecurities and self-reservation vanish and that it's also a stimulant is the one-two punch that makes people on cocaine so arrogant and verbose at the same time. The really gross thing is when people do enough of it that they've really put their self-reservation behind lock and key. Unfortunately, then they often start choosing external signifiers of how special they are, so everyone will know it. See: Noel Gallagher's floor-length fur coat.

It also has the charming effect of making insecure persons of the opposite gender feel less insecure and fucked up, and one of the unfortunate tricks of the animal brain is that we are associative and superstitious about things we are sufficiently emotionally inarticulate about. In short, the guy with coke makes the insecure and complicated ladies feel special and uncomplicated. That gets ugly fast. #winning.

The first time you do coke you fall in love, everything and everyone is fabulous. It's never like that again, even that same very night.

Like Ringo said, it's a drug that's sole purpose is just to do more of that drug. While you're on it, you can guzzle a case of beer easily even though it tastes like ham and you can't feel your throat.

I did the drug a few times and luckily got out of it quickly. I did some one night and hallucinated Gomer Pyle in 3D on a tv set and that was the end for me. The heart palpitations and not being able to sleep made it unbearable.

Unfortunately I lived in a house with my band and they hadn't decided to give it up yet and they knew of my disdain for the drug. This led to the hide in the bathroom and do coke surreptitiously routine, thinking I didn't know they were doing it. That's one of the worst feelings: the only guy not doing cocaine at the cocaine party.

I did ecstasy a couple of times and I know that drug is probably fucked as well but I thought that it was superior to coke and had similar effects without the downsides.

I should add that I haven't indulged in drugs or alcohol since 1996, not for any other reason but that I was worried I would kill myself.

This is one of the few drugs I've never done. Everyone I've ever known who was a coke-head was an obnoxious bastard. Also this was the drug of choice for 80's businessmen if I am to believe tv and movies. I would prefer to be neither of these.

Crap

Never tried it, but from the stories I've heard and the two or three people I've met who were on it I've drawn the conclusion that it turns you into a complete dick, and I could do without something like that. After reading the effects detailed in this thread I'm even less inclined.

Decidedly not a fan.

It was all over Austin when I lived there, but I was able to avoid it, even though people got all taken aback and said shit like, "what are you, a narc?" when I'd turn down a bump.

I thought I should at least try it. I did it in Chicago, with people who I'd known in Austin, so that was kinda fitting. I'd done speed and meth a couple of times before, in Kansas City, because I'd had friends who were into it, so being on a stimulant was really nothing new. But I've never been a fan.

I'd only done it a coupla more times, last couple of times were under these sort of weird, coercive circumstances. Once was with a fucked up acting teacher, who lured me into the photo booth at Skylark and got kinda high drama when I at first said I wouldn't, so I did the line just to keep her from throwing a tantrum. She hit on me later, was rebuffed, started crying, still rebuffed, texted me the next day, apologizing and asking if we could keep the previous night's drama between us. Sure, fine, whatever.

Time after that was in the men's room at Estelle's, acquaintance of mine, had his friend hold the bathroom door closed while the key was passed, knew if I didn't partake tould would get ugly.

So, yeah, there's the drug and the people on it, and the way you're looked at if you're not, like who the fuck are you to not do it?

In high school, I noticed that everybody I knew who was into coke was a jock, a dipshit, or a jock dipshit.

In college, I noticed that everybody I knew who was into heroin was a sketchy asshole or dead.

Somehow, I've never wondered what awesome things I passed up by not once taking these.

Thank you, eyes and ears!
