Some Real Shit [NSFW Warning]


NSFW warning: I will be using raw language and sexually explicit text here.

What I'm about to share has never been told to anyone in my immediate circle of friends and family. Back when I lived in Nova Scotia, before the old apartment building on Arthur Street burned to the ground years ago, we had some .... unique characters living in the building.

Besides the usual pot smokers who normally kept quiet and to themselves, we had a few people that were into the more dangerous drugs: Cocaine, crack, barbituates, and any opiod they could get their hands on.

For anonymous reasons, we'll call this character "Wendy" because I'd rather not give their first name and have that person identified. Wendy was a true addict in all sense of the word: She'd hustle continuously for money to feed her crack addition. Before meeting her I never knew what Cocaine psychosis is. I remember one fucking time I was dropping off some food she needed to borrow and I saw her busy digging around the cupboards and crawling on the floors looking for something.

"They're here, the bugs. Don' you see them?" she said. Wendy was frantically digging into imaginary objects on the floor, walls, and cupboard. I searched with my eyes but could see nothing. She was completely nuts and in deep Cocaine psychosis.

Cocaine psychosis is basically an overdose in your mind. The condition usually befalls unfortunate souls with a history of cocaine or crack abuse. Cocaine is one of the most addictive substances on earth, and as with other drugs, your body builds up a tolerance against it. Over time, addicts need to consume more and more cocaine to get high. Cocaine gives a boost to your sympathetic nervous system filling your body with good vibrations, but while in that supercharged state, things can get ugly.

 Months later I saw her on the street in a tiny red dress. She was very skinny and out looking for tricks to support her habit. She would pawn anything that wasn't bolted down for crack money. I don't know how she stayed in the building, but I suspect she was gifting blowjobs to the superintendant. She was caught giving blowjobs to clients outside the building using plastic sobeys bags. (ughh).

Her boyfriend was an abusive alcoholic asshole to actually broke her leg one year. He never went to jail.  My advice to anyone thinking about doing Cocaine or crack: Don't even think about it. Although its' unlikely you'll get addicted to it after 2-3 tries, it could actually kill you by stressing out your cadiovasular system (heart attack).

During this time of year some people get in over their heads doing lines of Coke, meth, or other types of drugs. My advice is to stay away from these:

Meth
Cocaine
Barbituates
Opiates
Alcohol
Depressants
Spice/K2/artificial weed
Man-made psychadelics such as 2C-B

Safe with moderation:

Marijuana
Magic Truffles and Mushrooms

I am not advocating drug use. In fact I gave up weed for over 10 months this year. Even now I am wary about smoking a joint or taking a vape hit that could lead to a psychological dependence. Use in moderation and in the appropriate setting and time.
