    That's great to hear. Now, you have a lesser chance of getting addicted to it or similar drugs of this nature. It will help you health-wise in the long run. Just remember this experience when trying out other drugs.

    This may be totally inappropriate but this made me think of something my fiance (jokingly- he's never done it!) says. He will say, "I've never done coke but I love the smell of it!"
    I tried it once and only once.
    I got sores in my nose, a sinus infection that lasted two months, horrible headaches and it tasted nasty when it drained. NOT fun. Never again.

    I have never tried cocaine, and I never want to. The amounts of times it would take to get an actual high would not even be remotely worth the shortness and easy addictive qualities of the product. I have also heard from former users that it ruins regular life for you, as you only want to find that next buzz. With cocaine, I don't think there's a "moderation" period because of how short the high lasts and how large the cravings become. I'd stay away for good.

    Good thing that you did not liked it even you have tried it several times. Better if you will stop trying it cause you might get used to it in the long run and besides why try it again for several times if you do not like it. As said several times, prevention is better than cure. ;)

    Cocaine and alcohol is a very popular mix for a reason: they mix very well together. When your liver metabolizes both alcohol and cocaine at the same time, one of the byproducts is cocaethylene. While it lasts much longer and is much more euphoric than cocaine, it is more cardiotoxic.

    The first (and last) time I tried cocaine - I felt like I was nearly dying. My heart was racing so fast, and I really didn't know what to do. The good part was I didn't feel at all addicted to it, just.. Scared.

    I have never even tried coke. The thought of snorting something up my nose freaks me out. I have always been curious on what the high actually feels like, but I know it couldn't possibly be worth the addiction. I know better.

    This is something new to me. I have always thought that cocaine or any drug will always have an effect on you the first time you tried it. I didn't know thar some drugs don't have any effect on some people at all. Now aren't you glad that you didn't like coccaine the first time you tried it?
