I Like the Physical Connection

When I search out crack, it is for the ritual as well as for the physical high which I get.  I know it's also a gamble for what I will get and who I will get to do it with.  Most of the time, I spend way more than I should and get a lot less than what I was hoping for.  I am a weak male who just wants someone to spend a couple of hours with him.  Cr ack makes  everyone  on a short leash.  I want to be on that leash, and am ready to be, but the others are so far into their addiction, that they cn't sit and enjoy it.  It has to be one hit after another.   Of course I'm not doin it with anyone I love, and they ain't e ither ...maybe that is part of the problem.  No.   T^he problem is if you are too addicted, you just can't get enough....

This reads like it came straight from my own brain. It's crazy but its also kinda nice to know I'm nit the only one to feel this way.

I haven't smoked it now in two years and I still fantasize about it. That is how powerfully it hooks into the brain. I know if I went back out to a big city, I'd be dabbling once again

I just started smoking and love the way i feel and connect with others. My boyfriend gave me a nice hit and now I crave it. He does not want me on it anymore. Which sucks! Why would he give it to me in the first place? Too bad... I don't want to stop.

The \"lovely\" feeling and feeling of \"connection\" WILL dissapear and you will become a ZOMBIE. STOP before it\'s TOO LATE.

You are right. It almost killed me. Do I still want to smoke it? Absolutely but not let it control me like before. Been off it for a month or so now. Feels great.

too much of anything is bad. Getting high is great, but only if you do it as a treat not a life style. The minute you stop paying the bills or start ignoring life, time to quit. I get high about 4 to 5 times a year. Love the dope, but it does not rule me, I control myself.

Yes... it is better as a treat. I feel a lot better now.
I realized that you have to be very careful about the company you keep when you do it. Not everyone can just stop and people will try to control you with it to feed their habit. Lesson learned...

yeah it is wonderful and yet at the same time a curse if you are not strong enough to stop after a day or so run.

I smoke cuz I'm lonely. I have a dream about every now n again but not often. I think if I was properly engaged I wouldn't do it. But then sometimes I just think who cares anyways n just go for it. Crack makes u forget about Ur heart until it explodes lol

I know exactly how you feel, it's better when you have a "friend" there who can just sit and smoke with you and enjoy it with you, the drug lasts longer that way and is more enjoyable, cuz your both on the same level at the same speed, there's a feeling of security in that.

I am ashamed that I wrote this story as it is a disgusting example of how low I've allowed myself to go. Through self-centeredness I've become 'out of touch' with reality and what is truly important. Today LIT, your words suddenly sunk in and I've been overwhelmed with the hard truth. In my denial, I thought that I was only hurting myself, which was my intention, but I didn't see the bigger picture that included others I cared for or amazingly, cared for me. When you said that I 'missed out' I was reminded of two precious gifts God had given me this year and one of them was time and the other was someone 'way better than crack', to share it with. How I let those gifts go is as frightening as it was stupid. Love is about giving and sharing - something my addictions never taught me, they just served the self. If I can't learn to give, unconditionally, then I can't learn to love. In essence I chose a substitue for love. I have lost much stuff over the years, but this loss of what you can't replace, has finally hit home. Living in my ego has left me empty and alone, and missing out on everything that has value. Livingisterminal, thankyou for the truth. I also realize now, how badly I need to get help.

There is no happiness in crack. I've rarely seen anyone smile on it. It seems to be a stage where the disappointed go to give-up. Missed out on talking to someone? I had an alcoholic, bitter room-mate who knew how to judge and label and when I had fallen in love, - spit on the very idea and told me that: 'it didn't exist, give her a break, and , grow up',- I didn't want to talk to her. Crack was a psychological and emotional suicide built on years of knowing I was a coward, and the hopelessness of being less-than. No, there is no happiness on the body vibration, - just escape. Thanks for the insight, but there is more to it than what may be perceived. And knowing that people that you cared about, reduce you to the lowest level in opinion, - well, that's just more fuel for the flame.

You're right.! And I think I am learning.

I must have been coming down offa crack when I wrote this. Excuse me. I said something about being a weak male who just wants to spend time with 'him'. There is no 'him'. I must have been referring to the warm body, -so to speak- who I am doing the crack with. It's always a woman, and I imagine something good will come out of it, but, little does. It does fuel my imagination, and I get to express my fantasies and hear there story, because they have em, cause they turn tricks for the ****. I try and store up the stories in remembrance so I can think of em later. I am the underground voyeur, living with their off color life, stimulating my abberant imagination.
