The first time I tried synthetic marijuana I was 14.
I saw many news articles on how it was dangerous, and even promised myself I’d never try it.
One day, I couldn’t get any real marijuana. So I decided I’d settle with fake.
I paid someone at my school $20, and they gave it to me the next day in a school bathroom.
It was in an orange bag that had an iPhone on it. The name on the back said iBlown.
When I got home, I locked my self in my room.
I loaded a bowl and took a couple hits.
I knew instantly I was hooked.
It was a high I couldn’t even begin to describe. I felt amazing.
Everyday for the next week, I would go home and smoke.
Finally, I ran out. I quit for about two weeks.
I was craving it, so I had the same person get me two bags. I finished both of those in a week.
I realized there were two gas stations near me that sold it. So I started buying it from them.
My smoking habit finally progressed to smoking all of the time. Before school, and all night after. I would even skip school just to smoke.
It got to the point where I was smoking more than a bag a day.
About five months after I started, I noticed I would vomit more often than usual. The vomiting progressed to multiple times a day.
Before I quit, I would excessively sweat, always be nervous, barely sleep, rarely eat, and my heart would feel weird. I noticed I had heart palpitations.
I constantly would be in and out of the hospital sick.
After 8 months, there was a bust in my area. All of the gas stations got raided and shut down. Everyone who sold fake in my area got arrested.
I had to quit because I had no way of obtaining it.
For about a week, all of those symptoms I had seemed to worsen.
Luckily I got through it all.
Now that all of that is over, I feel better than ever.
But I haven’t relapsed, and I don’t plan on it.
