    Cocaine for the first time

    Hi everyone,

    My girlfriend said the other day she had done cocaine before a couple of times and she could get hold of some and I have never done any drugs before but am very tempted to try the white powder.

    Can anyone help a newbie, what sort of high do you get? Just how addictive is it? The biggest worry I have is getting hooked, as well as any sort of health problems.

    And is the best way to snort? I have heard taking through the gums isn't as effective?

    Thanks for any help!

    First question from a health perspective, is do you or any of your immediate family members suffer from any heart disease or cardiovascular complaint? Do you already suffer from high blood pressure? Do you or any of your family have a history of Schizophrenia or Manic Depression?

    If the answer is yes to any of those I'd steer clear - Cocaine puts double strain on these systems by stimulating the heart to make it work harder, while also thickening the blood - more work, more fast.

    The quality of buzz depends very much on the amount and quality of the Cocaine, but also if you are with people you like/trust. If this is you first ever drug experience I recommend doing it somewhere familiar and relaxed, with people you trust.


    From my perspective it was like a few waves of pleasure, a bit euphoric with peaks of confidence and self-assuredness. Other stories will probably vary, but generally you feel stimulated, confident, possessed of a certain sharpness, probably horny as well.

    If you are going to snort it (which is more effective than rubbing it on your gumbs) just do a small line first - get your girlfriend to show you which one she's done and take one about 3/4 the size of that and use that as your baseline. Don't drink on top of it, wait until you see what the effect is like and build from there if you want to.

    Just a reminder as well; when drinking and sniffing combine in the body they form another chemical; Cocaethylene. This means that your body is now bailing out three toxic substances; and cocaethylene is in its own right a chemical with an addiction potential. It can also lead to drinking and sniffing being inseparable, which can lead to dependency problems.

    Cocaine is a habit forming substance, so approach with caution; the availability of it has meant that many weekend users have developed dependencies very quickly.

    Also, my tupence - if you're the sort of person who buys Fair Trade, don't buy Cocaine. It is the single most unethical product you can buy; its production and trafficking are a chain of misery across continents. It funds horrific civil wars in Latin America, and keeps Right-Wing Guerilla groups such Columbia's 6th Brigade in their business of disappearance, torture and murder.

    And its not just abroad; you will not have to go far up the trail in this country to find some pretty horrific people.


    Hope some of this helps!

    Ok so the sensible advice would be not to try Cocaine. You probably won't think that much of it at first, espescially for how much it costs, but start doing it more and it won't take long until you're addicted, and lots of us can vouch for that.

    However I know you're going to try it anyway if you're curious so all I can say is enjoy it, but remember that it isn't reality, you can't always feel like that and that it's too addictive and expensive to make a regular habbit.

    Martin_Bashir,

    Very useful post many thanks, no history of anything like what you mention anywhere in the family at all, I have been with my girlfriend for over 6 months, it is a very safe and stable relationship shes quite a few years older than me and has done powder only a couple of times in her life and not for a while so she's not a regular drug taker and just I'd like to experience it once or twice with her.

    Getting addicted is my biggest worry of all for so many reasons!

    Many thanks also to pi''led for his help as well.

    J,

    I appreciate your input and you are correct but I don't need drugs to enjoy life and have a good time I was just after a bit of info on taking the drug.

    Well I don't think it's necessarily the best advice J. This is a forum for discussing how people can manage the risks involved in the drugs they choose to use. It doesn't help to simply refuse to engage with people who are actually looking for ways to responsibily use drugs. But anyway this isn't the place for this debate and we'll leave this discussion for another time, and this thread for people who want to add any further advice.

    Yeah we all felt like that at one stage. But you try it anyway because Cocaine is the 'cool' drug to be taking, realise the snorting isn't so bad and soon the idea of sorting that shit up your nose is very tempting.

    It makes it even nicer to think it was probably made in an unhygienic jungle lab by someone with only a moderate amount of chemistry knowledge, then it was commercially cut with maybe an old painkiller or a heart medication - then put into a condom and swallowed, then shat out, then cut again with god knows what on another unclean surface.

    These are ten things I know about Cocaine that hopefully might help you:

    1. It's incrediably addictive
    2. It can be a complete waste of money
    3. Some dealers will cut it with shit to make more cash
    4. Not all people that snort coke will end up with noses like Daniella Westbrook
    5. It makes you feel fucking great
    6. IMO I never have a comedown
    7. People are always your best mate once you start racking up
    8. Becoming too attached or too dependant on it can happen to any type of person: chav on the dole or lawyer
    9. Snorting is the best way and gumming up any stray bits
    10. It's always a hell of a lot nicer when it's free

    Hope that helped a bit

    It should be comfortable and noticable really to say the least. You'll feel your heart beating faster, Remember "set" and "setting" - the mind set you're in when taking, who you're with and where you are. It has a huge bearing. If drinking remember what's been said earlier about the cocaethelyne.

    Very is the short answer but - like anything - it's not like a movie where one snort and then you've got big Tony Montana piles. It happens over time but perhaps a shorter time than you'd think.

    Not trying to be offensive but it's a good job you've come here to ask for advice as there are other health problems that you should probably be aware of if you don't want to die such as don't do it if you have any heart or hypertension issues. Obviously there's cocaine psychosis but that won't happen for years and years if you decide to keep using.

    Snorting is the most common method, don't start doing 10 lines or anything stupid, keep it down to one or two because the strain on your heart on first go means that going over 1-2 is inadvisable and after that you'll find yourself needing bigger lines to get the same effect if you keep it up. IV'ing is the biggest high but obviously the biggest risk (dirty needles, throat bleeding etc.) so avoid. Smoking non-freebase coke is pretty pointless. I'm not so sure about taking it through the gums, it's an anasthetic so people thought rubbing it on their gums would let them know if it was the real stuff or not (because the gums would feel numb). Of course, that doesn't work because it could be cut with another anesthetic to produce the same effect.

    Ask your girlfriend more about it before you do it and only do it if you want to. I'm not encouraging or discouraging you either, its your life.

    So fuck, it's protected when it's up their holes, not like they shove coke by the handful up their arses and shit it out when they get to the UK.

    A dick wrapped in a condom is all right but cocaine isn't?

    lol,I see what you are saying.

    It is horrid though My cousins ex boyfriend had to spend some time in prison a few years back for smuggling cocaine. He was caught because the person he was doing it with, unfortunately had one of the condoms burst in his stomach. Of course he died and it was a pretty horrible horrible death. Apparently his eyes exploded or something with the pressure.
    The things people will do for money, so fucking risky.
