    hey, i really never wanted to do cocaine, but when i was really drunk one time my friend and i did a line.


    now i feel really bad about it, and when i think about it too much, i feel really reall edgy and unconfortable and get the chest pain, but it goes away when i dont think about it.





    HOW DO I STOP THINKING ABOUT IT? anyone have any cures?

    There is nothing easy about it.

    Getting off the train for the night can be brutal, unless you just wear yourself out. A good hash joint might help. Then put your gear away, close your eyes, and think about puppies. And clouds. Meadows. Daisies. Naked women. If all that doesn't work, pinch one off (or preferably have someone do it for you.) If these solutions are ineffective, you probably should have just popped a couple of Xanax in the first place.

    Zach Swan,

    I would say he'd probably get nice & relaxed on the Xanax, then bump a few and enjoy the mix. He agrees completely about the difficulty of getting off the train for the night. What seems to work best for him is not to think at all... put in ear plugs, lay down in a darkened room with a droning fan going and let the brain shut itself off. With luck, he'll fall asleep.

    well I thought he would put in his two cents on this as well.

    if I buy more quantity at once, it's cheaper and usually better quality (i.e., more chunky rocks etc.) than if he buys just a little bag for the evening. the problem then is the same as the rest, putting it away for another day. seems so hard to do.

    one thing I tried not too long ago was give about 1/2 his 8ball to a friend who doesn't do coke. that way that person is not going to answer the phone at 4am when my supply runs out. so basically I will give up and let the comedown happen and try to get some Z's.

    this night however, I had afatty 8ball and thought he could just do a couple bumps and save it for the weekend. I am down to his last gram now, hoping to leave it....!!! I need to have some will-power!!

    One technique that occasionally works and used to work all the time is to have a plan ahead of time. It is Saturday night and I has to work at 9am on Monday: I say ok, so this much is for tonight and the rest will be saved for next weekend; this will last until 4am which means plenty of time to recover for Monday morning. Of course this is easier said than done and this technique works much less frequently than it once did...

    SWIM typically comes to a point of diminishing return where it makes more sense to stop and save for later than to continue. Of course that doesn't mean it always happens, but if I am lucky enough to reach that point with some left it can be possible to give it up for the night/day.

    One unsafe method that I has used is to substitute something that typically leads to sleep. Divide the stuff up into tonight's and "for later" and when tonight's is gone another substance is taken (typically something like valium or Oxy), followed by sleep. Of course this probably isn't very smart but there is some left over if I am lucky enough to wake up.



    It was once very easy; I would have stuff for days and even weeks, but what was once easy is now quite difficult. And the smokeable stuff is a completely different story -- much more difficult to find some left the next day.

    Re: Question -- putting cocaine away

    I used to do it till the end, but once it got like half way gone she would start majorly stressing about how to get more, where to get the money, trying to figure out a way to postpone the crash..,

    So then she started not even doing it unless she had a gram, and then 2 grams, and the an 8... Since she couldn't sleep during the comedown anyways (lucky people who can!!) she would always stay up at least all night... Normally she was too tired by the next day, so she could make herself save some, but in reality it just brought her to doing way more than in the beginning..

    Anymore she never gets less than a half O, and always stays up at least 3 days.. into the second she is forcing herself to take lines so she can stay "high", so into the third when there is absolutly positive effect from it at all, she usually just mellows out to a few movies...

    SWIM first thought it was a great idea to buy more than she could do, it relieved the hours of stress and (many times) tears associated with starting to run out..

    However... with abundance comes the end of rationing, building tolerance, ruining the bodys capability of feeling effects, longer binges, worse withdrawals...

    Most important advice I have, is if you know you are someone who either has or is very likely to develop a lack of control over use, always ALWAYS get in small portions... You can't do what you don't have, and by the time you are able to run and pick up more, you will probabley have crashed enough to either be too depressed or too rational. Limiting doses slows the build up of tolerance, prolongs actual enjoyment of the high, is better for the body and the budget....

    From the first time you allow yourself to do a considerable amount more than normal, your heading for a downward spiral..

    Sooner than you could imagine you are finishing the last line of the ounce you bought three days ago, spending another sleepless night posting responses to drug forums..

    Re: Fiending It No Matter What

    Swim only 'fiends' for it during the night he is taking it, after I has had some sleep and its out his system he wont want anymore for a while.

    discofferret, dont mean to get on a a soapbox but maybe you should try some more counselling or maybe a holiday something to break the cycle. Regarding your other post starting to shoot it can surely only a downward path from where you are at now. Good luck in whatever you chose to do.

    Hmmm I think that too much is not a specific amount, too much is when it starts interfering with your daily tasks and literally messes things to the point of no control.

    Re: Fiending It No Matter What

    Thanks for your comment tooblue4you. I have been thinking about going to counselling again. But it still wont change on where swim live's and who swim socialise's with. Which I think is the problem. I am trying best not to get as bad as I did before. Not having any money is a good thing. And I had a understanding girlfriend who helps alot. As for the other post I just wanted to ask. swim also doenst like needles which might help in deciding.

    Re: Question -- putting cocaine away

    I will add to his own thread -- he eventually found the right solution for him. What he does is put the last few lines in a nasal spray bottle, and add some water. Then he toots on the bottle every once in awhile, enough to maintain a mild buzz for an hour or more. Basically eliminates the comedown phase, as SWIM can gradually decrease his use -- he usually is done before the nasal sprayer is empty, and has enough left for a brief reminder toot upon discovering the bottle a day or two later ;).

    Edit -- oops, this was about *putting some away* wasn't it... LOL. Welllll... maybe this technique would work for that too, I have yet to try it.

    Melatonin can help with the comedown.

    Re: Need for coke..bad yet good

    For SWIM it was different. After doing it on say a Friday he would easily go without until the following Thursday or so, then have an urge to do it again. This urge is usually easily resisted unless consuming lots of alcohol.

    Re: The Cocaine Fiending Thread-- how do you deal with putting it away

    when I has to sleep and has exhibited poor judgement and got coke on a weekday, swim rarely has trouble rapping up use by as early as 10pm to get some sleep. Just smoke a cigar, pound a beer, clean up, shower and thats that.

    on the weekends, I had a hard time putting anything away. Its not uncommon for swim to blow until 5 am on a friday or saturday night. thats if swim's got nothing to do.

    Re: The Cocaine Fiending Thread-- how do you deal with putting it away

    My lifeguard usually has no problem putting the sack away. He tells me a couple good pills (everybody says xanax but he says a couple tylenol 4's, insufflated or oral is the ultimate coke comedown neutralizer). My lifeguard even just told me that he's sitting in bed as we speak, deciding whether or not to leave the bag in the drawer instead of continuing to enjoy the internet while conservatively blowing down...

    My lifeguard is also new here.... hey :)

    SWIM's roommate locks it in his safe.. no worries at all. I am not fiendish enough to try to get into that.

    Re: [using] The Cocaine Fiending Thread-- how do you deal with putting it away

    I buy by the 1/2 ounce-- since larger purchases are discounted-- so he usually has quite a bit of coke around begging him, "Snort me! Snooooort meeee!"

    His way of stopping for the night is:

    1) Put the coke and all paraphenalia away.
    2) Take a long shower.
    3) Expend some energy grooming SWIM's self (shaving, clipping nails, and brushing teeth)
    4) Crawl into bed and turn on some light-hearted programming to pass the time until he can fall asleep.

    Step one is necessary, as there's no way SWIM can quit for the night with coke sitting right in front of him.

    Steps two and three are good for SWIM because his comedown is more tolerable when he feels clean and well-groomed.

    Re: [using] The Cocaine Fiending Thread-- how do you deal with putting it away

    I agree with putting the coke away and then taking a shower. for some reason a shower tends to snap SWIM out of whatever residual effects he is feeling from the coke buzz and makes it easier to sleep. I have no problem running back to the bag after he's put it away; he used to have such a problem and would be up at 1-2 am on a work night hating himself for it. a few nights of that snapped him out of it though.

    SWIM usually finds that he should put the bag away (in a drawer) about a half hour or hour before he -really- wants to stop because there usually is the inevitable urge to go for just one or two more small ones to end the night, so SWIM just started putting it away early knowing he's going to go for one last one (or two once in a while).

    Re: Would You *wink wink* say that he has control over cocaine?

    well a few thinks.

    its hard to know wheter you can control it or not, but its safe to asume that if you dont have the proper cultural backround like peruvians or bolivians you WILL find it difficult to control.

    ESPECIALLY if the cocaine You found was the crap that circulates the streets (and believe me its crap, actual cocaine does not fiend, does not crash, does not make you speedy and does not "enforce" an unditached edgy euphoria like the street crap).

    in swims opinion most western people (swim included) must take certain measures to control cocaine use. Always respect it, it has the pottential to ruin your life.

    cocaine can be exceptionaly rewarding or a complete bitch, swim wont argue either way, suffice to say that swim who isnt an addictive personality (no smoking,no cofee, no alcohol, no gambling nothing) has a descent job and a steady relationship finds tough to completely throw his mind off cocaine, its just another thing swim must control. And while I do not use all that often he can see the pottential.

    always the utmost respect, always

    Re: Would You *wink wink* say that he has control over cocaine?

    if you can stop yourself from stratching a mosquitoe bite that is really itchy, you can stop yourself from doing coke. If you gotta stratch that itch, coke will drag you down.

    SWIm doesn't form addiction easily, no tobacco, not even lottery, but swim definate did form a mild addiction to coke just using once a week. Coke became the focal point of my week.

    Re: Would You *wink wink* say that he has control over cocaine?

    thats reasonable yes. Its mostly cultural i kid you not, we are trained to hide cocaine use and thus use till our eyes go numb when we have some. Same thing happend with alcohol prohibition. People who where usually casuall drinkers end up alcoholics. Bare in mind that alot of people have a focal point in their week, whaching their favorite show, eating crapy food, going out to hit on girls/boys etc but that is not considered harmfull. For some reason doing cocaine once a week IS and that gives those "addicted" feelings. Just move past that, its merely another pleasure, if it is NOT interfering with day to day tasks whats the problem?
