I understand cocaine and this after doing the drug just one time, and that was over thirty years ago. That may not seem like a very large sample by which to judge a drug by and trust me on this one, I have had this conversation before. I actually advocate the legalization of cocaine.
This isn’t a reflection of how I feel about the drug but how I see drug laws being useless and dangerous. Cocaine is a dangerous drug for all the wrong reasons. It’s something that can do a lot of damage in a very short period of time.
A friend of mine and I went in together and bought two hundred dollars of cocaine one night back in the early 80’s. The woman who was our connection wanted me to try it with her and in a couple of hours things went from exciting to intense to insane to really, really, surreal. I
remember a lot of sex, a lot of music, and a lot of sex. Then suddenly it was all over and all the cocaine was gone.
The dude who wanted his half of the cocaine wasn’t exactly the forgiving type but he knew if he wanted his money back he couldn’t kill me first. I made one hundred and seventy-five dollars a week back then so I traded a week’s worth of work for a couple of hours of fun. Oh, and had someone capable of murder ready to kill me. Considering all things, I got off light.
A friend of mine went deep and believed everything cocaine told him. Life was better when he was high, sex was better when he was high, the joy of existence never felt so good as it did when he was high and he sold his soul to this belief just as surely as if it were a religion.
Getting off coke wasn’t easy but he managed to do it. He had lost his career, his family, most of everything he owned, and nearly every friend he ever had. Worst of all, even though he was clean and sober, life wasn’t the same without his habit. The spark and sparkle were gone. All of the good times were punctuated by serious coke use and now, back in reality, he was home from Disney World forever. Nothing he would do, nothing he could do, would ever match that time of his life when he was on top of the world.
It’s an illusion. He was never on top of anything but some woman selling her body for cocaine, and make no mistake that can be a heady thing. But if a drug is what it takes to make sex great I would suggest you’re doing it wrong. If there isn’t anything in your life that can make you feel like you’ve just licked a lightning bolt then I suggest you get out more, or just go deeper within.
I say legalize cocaine and let those who want to wallow in it go for it. For those who want a hit every once in a while, turn them loose and for those of us who will never get near the stuff, well, most of us don’t care.
What you need to feel the way cocaine makes you feel already exists inside of you. If you can’t find it without a drug, you’re the last people on earth that should be using.
