Back in 2015, when I was 17, I decided I’d start smoking spice. *again*
I’ve tried it recently with a few friends, nothing happened, I just wasn’t into it and stopped.
But in 2015, one day a roommate of mine happened to grab some and smoke it. I smelled it, got curious, and that started two months of living hell.
I’d regularly smoke with my roommate; we’d be so messed up we could barely walk or talk right. My roommate would usually nod out for a while and wake up in a panic & I would have these blackouts and vomit atrociously.
But did that stop me? Of course, not, teens are stupid. My roommate and I would take walks, smoking spice and doing stupid shit.
One day, I got so high I somehow ended up sleeping on the grass in a yard and woke up confused as to why I was there.
But there’s one time. I will never forget. That is hopefully telling people this will help them realize that K2 is no joke. It’s not cool. It’s dangerous.
I was about to take a shower when I decided to smoke, so I grabbed my things and locked myself in the bathroom.
At first, I didn’t feel “high enough” so instead of waiting a little longer I smoked more, well that was a bad idea because shortly after, I became unresponsive.
I leaned against a towel rack and ripped it out of the wall as I tried to regain my strength. I began having seizures and vomiting EVERYWHERE. My whole bathroom was covered in my vomit.
Now, of course, I locked the door so after my parents heard the loud crash of me and the metal towel rack falling behind me, they pick locked the door open & immediately called for an ambulance.
They had to use Narcan twice. I was in the ambulance, and I remember just passing in and out of consciousness. I was in the hospital for hours until I was able to stay awake and focused.
All in all, Spice is a terrible drug, and no one should ever touch it. Whether you’re curious or a friend offers it to you, it’s not worth risking your life over.
Life is special, and beautiful. You only get one. Don’t take it away from yourself when you have so much more to live.
