This is one of the most addictive drugs ever known. When you first try crack, you get a high like no other! You are in a state where nothing bothers you, any pain is gone and you are on top of the biggest cloud you could be on and it is great.
Here’s the problem, you never reach that first high state again. You buy and smoke more and more crack trying to get back to the state you were in the first time you try it. It never happens again. You could purchase all the crack on earth but you will never get back to that state of mind you were in when you first tried it. That is the problem; everyone wants to get back to that first high state.
I know people who spend all their paychecks just to get crack. I have seen it ruin lives, people become liars, they pawn everything they own just to have money to buy crack to get to that state of mind that never happens again. I have friends who pay tens of thousands of dollars a year just to try to get back to that state of mind they were in the first time they tried it. They will blame their loved ones, lie to everyone about doing it and everything they are doing wrong is someone else’s fault.
