    This is a horrible new drug that I just recently have heard of. Anyone have any experiences?

    For those of you who are not aware of what it is, this documentary will help out:

    I don't think you will get a lot answers, not from people who have actually used it at least. That thing is nasty, those who use it don't get to live too long. I really can't understand how people are willing to do somethingl ike that to themselves, just in order to get high. It baffles me.

    I figured somebody who had done it a handful of times and stopped would have some insight. It is not a particularly popular drug in a lot of places, so I can understand how a lot of people have probably not done it. Yeah, I don't get why anyone would do this, ever.

    I'd never heard of it either until reading this post. Like @Tremmie I'm astounded that people would use this - I guess the same could be said for many drugs but things just seem to be getting worse and worse for a high nowadays.

    Maybe there will be someone that can weigh in and give some experience but I hadn't heard of it at all so I'm not sure how prevalent it is...

    I think very people out there has been able to only use it a couple of times, because I have heard this drug is super addictive, but who knows, maybe someone who has personally tried this will reply this thread, you never know :) It's would be interesting! I still can't understand how one's addiction can be strong enough not to make one stop after noticing something as big as rotting flesh!!

    This is one seriously nasty drug that I hope nobody here will even consider to try out. I've been hearing about Krokodil for the past 3-4 years. It seems like a substance that was conceived in the hellish pits of Hades. Only a person with a death wish would go near the stuff.

    Most probably, nobody here has ever tried it. It's a really destructive drug, that eats your flesh and turns you into a walking abomination really fast. It's almost impossible to recover from it. Only someone who is really dumb would touch that drug.

    I'm in Canada and I am not entirely sure that it has reached us yet, but there are people that have said that they heard of someone who used it, or they think that may have used it because stuff they got didn't look right. I've seen video clips about it and can't imagine why anyone would want to try it knowing what it does to you. Still I can see someone being desperate and if its cheap enough they might talk themselves into trying it just once thinking that won't be enough to cause any damage. But that's how it starts, who says just how much is damaging, where is that line crossed? I know that there have been reported cases in the United States and my biggest concern would be people getting the stuff and not knowing what it is because there is still a huge ignorance among the drug users of the city I am in, There have been a lot of fentanyl scares where I am from too. More than people knowingly trying the stuff, I am way more concerned about dishonest dealers substituting it for real heroin in order to make more money. There are people around who are that unscrupulous. How can a person know if they are getting the real thing? Especially people just starting out. Heroin is becoming a real epidemic among the young in my city.

    I think this is mostly in Russia. The side effects of this stuff sounds horrific. I really think the idea of growing scales like a crocodile turns most people off. I don't think this will be used a lot in the U.S. I've never tried it and never will.

    I have heard about this drug from the news a long time ago. They even showed a woman who had bad skin from using this drug. This substance is horrible and yet some still seek it out. Glad to see there is a documentary on it now.

    I have seen horrible videos and pictures of this drug. How anybody stays alive on this stuff is beyond me. It's so devastating. I can't believe people come up with this stuff and people actually try it. It's scary how dangerous that is.

    I honestly have not heard of this type of drug before. Reading about it now makes me realize just how mad the world has become. How can people produce substances that bring nothing but destruction? Rather than waste their time producing drugs, shouldn't they do their part and make this world a better place? It's just beyond me and it's so frustrating.

    I don't have experience with the drug, but from what I've heard it's something that has appeared on the east coast a bit. It's basically poorly made opiates that can make your skin rot. It's not really posing a big threat over here since it's mostly a European thing. Most of our heroin comes from Mexico, rarely South East Asia.

    It boggles my mind how people will presumably do anything toxic just to get a "high." I mean it is the only body you have people. Once you screw yourself up with ingesting toxic substances you may never recover. I really don't understand what makes people want to to do that to themselves, I really don't. It is a sickness.

    That looks pretty harsh, I wonder why people even try this drug in the first place knowing for certain that their life is gonna be ruined. I know there are depressed and suicidal people out there, but still..

    It is my first time to know about this new drug and I think it is not yet being use here or not just too familiar to get noticed and be reported by the authorities. Agree that it looks like a really dangerous drug.

    I've seen so many documentaries on this drug! Its definitely one of the worst, it literally eats the user from the inside. I can't imagine being so desperate that I would take that drug. It sounds horrible.

    I think they start out already deeply in the throes of addiction to other hard drugs like heroine or crack. Likely they end up without enough money to purchase the drug they want to feed the addiction and figure using crocodile as a substitute 'this one time' won't be harmful, it probably snowballs from there. Also, I'm sure lots aren't knowledgeable about the drugs or aware of the effects until after they begin using it. And it's probably even sold by drug dealers as heroine to unknowing addicts in order to make more money off it. It's a fucked up world out there.

    Want to know why people take this drug? Because they are tricked to think they're buying heroin. Those effects you saw in those videos don't appear over night, but only after some period of intensive usage and they can't do nothing to prevent that from happening.
