Many even said they could no longer get high enough from it but kept spending money to get that high. They would even say this *while* they were smoking.
R91 describes the eventual paranoia exactly. This ALWAYS happens: Do a hit then look for the police to come through the door, look out the window, look through the peephole in the hotel room door.

I've never told this story to anyone.. In a nutshell, I got addicted to it and started giving shit to my dealer to pay for it (when I didn't have cash).. You see, OP, when you are addicted to crack, your cash depletes very fast.
I had a special necklace my mom gave me (for my 16th birthday) and I gave it to him. I also "borrowed" my brother's prized guitar and gave that to him as well. Looking back, I can't believe it.
Anyway, one day I went over to the crack house and saw one of the dirty, nasty crack whores wearing my necklace. I fucking lost it. She wouldn't give it to me, and of course I didn't have any money to get it back. I never did get it back, and the thought of that trash wearing the necklace my mom so thoughtfully picked out for me made me sick. That was it. I never did it again .
That's what it took to realize how fucked up I was. That image is *still* burned into my brain, 20 years later, and it still makes me queasy thinking about it.

Crack had a grip on me for about 5 years. I would do it as often as I could and loved it during sex. I had a buddy who would get between my legs and suck my cock all night long while we smoked. The best feeling was when I would take a hit and my buddy sucked me at the same time. I don't know how many hours, days and nights we did that, or how much money I paid for all that crack. But, I was one of the lucky ones. One day, something in my brain said, "no more" and I stopped. Just like that. It's been three years since I smoked crack, and miraculously, I have no cravings or thoughts about it. But I know I am an addict.
Anyone who is tempted to try crack - please just walk away from it. Most people are not as lucky as I was and that shit ruins lives. And worse yet is that the people who love you suffer as much, if not more than you do.

The thing about meth which most people don't know, and which should be widely publicised, is that unlike heroin, which you can be on forever if you keep your nutrition up, meth causes catastrophic damage to the blood vessels and arteries, including creating micro lesions. That's why meth users die of strokes and heart attacks. That's how the addition usually ends.
Of course, if they're gay, they always seroconvert, and the combination of not paying attention to nutrition and their hiv meds, means that AIDS often takes them before the stroke does. Any by stroke I don't mean mid-50s stroke: I mean mid-30s stroke or even earlier.
Meth in the gay community is like a 2nd plague. There's so many pinched faced boys around now it's alarming.

Oh those were the days. All the stories above are just the tip of the iceberg of crazy that accompanies smoking crack. It is an intense trap. Some touch down for a few fun evenings and escape unscathed, wondering what the big deal is. Others never really surface again as their lives become consumed with that life. Yes, the sex is fucking molten hot,. That's what the mouth feels like that is sucking your cock as you take those first hits, especially at the start of the party or whenever you arrive in that dark apartment filled with naked smokers. Few can keep their pants up and on after that first hit. Long time partiers count on it. But that changes into just a bunch of addicts sitting around naked, getting high together and wondering who is stealing from whom. There is ultimately no escaping the paranoia. There is never an easy way to end the party two days later and after a time - weeks, months, maybe years - you'll turn around and wonder how you ever met these people in the heavily curtained dark room you are smoking and somewhat fucking with. It's an intense secret circle of users; some homeless, some weekend warriors, some turning their apartments into party spots to support their habits, some very hot, others ridiculously desperate and then the inevitable trolls, probably once hot, allowed to play because they provide the cash and drugs. It's a hot, dangerous mix that somehow I slipped out of after many a close call. And while I am very grateful all these years later, the memory remains inciting.

Shit, the first time I did coke, I was hooked. $6,000 later, I stopped. Crack has to be 100 times as good as coke is. Why play with matches when you're soaked in gasoline?

Heres a story. I've been sober 19 years, so this must have happened 20 years ago.
I got to know a local guy, kind of a character. Chemical engineer, and is a fairly well-known (in certain circles) author of subversive material. We got drunk one night and he suggested that we fool around. We did and during the course of the evening, we smoked something he had manufactured. I guess I'm stupid but I honestly don't know if it was crack or meth. I remember that the sex was pretty great. I also remember going to bed after that and thinking that "Well, that was fun but I'l never do that again." And I haven't.
LOL, maybe someone can tell me what it was I smoked?

Freebase. Homemade crack. He cooked up the coke in water with some baking soda. Smoked in a glass pipe, yes. Ever see him again? Still a local character?

Many long-time addicts have enablers. Many of them are a parent(s). Others are grandparents, siblings, off-spring, and former friends. They think they are helping addicts by giving them cash, paying their bills, giving them some job, transportation, food, and shelter. Parents can feel guilty or in denial their son or daughter turned out this way. They think by rendering the addict material things, the addict can get his/her life back in order. And addicts can give huge sob stories--mostly lies about the reason. Addicts can damage lives well beyond their own.
I have two younger relatives that are addicts and refuse to have anything to do them. Addicts are manipulative and deceptive, and shall go to any means to get their fix. I told both relatives years back I would help them ONLY for establishing treatment for the addiction, i. e. therapy and rehab, and full confirmation they are participating. Of course they are not accepting of that.

Yes, R119, he is still around. I run into him occasionally. He is still a character.

Still going strong 20 years later. Some people are insanely resilient. And the others lose it all and die.

The OP describes the exact feeling I had when I first tried... Tiramisu!

Back in college I smoked a ton of pot, tried amphetamines and even did some coke. NEVER did anything stronger but I also don't have an addictive personality. I love the feeling that opiates like oxycontin and percocet give whenever I take them (as prescribed for things like tooth or muscle aches, not street bought). But after a day or two on them I am ready to stop. I have no desire to try crack or meth but I DO wonder if someone who does not have an addictive personality would still become "Reefer Madness" addicted just from trying it once. I mean, there has never been a drug that I have not thought "Wow, that was great but I no more" if I wanted to stop. What the hell is it about crack or meth that grabs ahold and makes you become a zombie and ruin your life? Don't addicts already HAVE a bazillion mental problems that brought them to the drugs in the first place? I mean, they use drugs to numb the pain in their lives (like the songs say) and it is so easy for them to become addicted?
