I'd tell you to use the search engine, because theres full experience report on it, but hell, i'll just answer it straight up for you now. The high lasts what? However long you can hold your breath.
Are the myths true? Funnily enough, most of them yes, It's hard to overstate what a devil crack
is for most people. Insane euphoria
, that really can only be matched in intensity (albiet a different kind of euphoria), by very strong opiates
Stay away from it. While its not a benign entity by any means, powder cocaine
is alot safer than this.
Crack, has the most unique addiction
, it truely is with alot of people a "one hit hooked" situation. Such is the nature of the beast.
I'm not talking physical addiction, but the high is so so short, than you constantly chase it.
And when your already fucked up, and feel the desperation for more, that is comparable for a starving man's desire for food, you end up doing the most ridiclous, fucked up shit you've ever known.
Honestly, I would normally encourage people to proceed with caution and find out what a substance is like at their own pace and with reasonable experimentation, but don't bother with crack, no good will come of it.
It has nothing to offer to you but destruction. Take my word for it please.
(PS this thread is not to say some people can't take crack and not get addicted, but most of us will agree that crack can form the most rapid and intense short term addiction and fiending of any other drug
on the planet).
