I've done.... almost all of them.
At 18 and a half I took up smoking tobacco but was otherwise straight edge. During a 2010 summer classical music festival in Canada near Vancouver, I tried and fell in love with weed for the first time. When I came back home to Texas I became a regular weed smoker. The following September, on my 21st birthday, I tried alcohol for real for the first time.
From there things escalated quickly. My girlfriend at the time and I had a trust fund uber rich friend who would buy all kinds of stuff off the Silk Road and share with us. Within no time I tried MDMA, psilocybin (4.6 grams for my first ever trip), and LSD. This piqued my interest in the different places the human mind could go. Seriously it was like being locked in a tiny closet my whole life only to discover I was living in a mansion.
I soon started trying the less "benevolent" drugs. Found an old, full bottle of alprazolam (Xanax), found another full bottle of tramadol as treatment for a car crash years prior that I never took. Before I knew it, I was ordering all kinds of stuff from the Silk Road myself. (The FBI took my $12 of BTC from my onsite wallet when they seized it, I wonder how much that $12 is worth now)
I was always disciplined and never used anything outside of weed and tobacco habitually, that is, until I moved to Austin in an apartment complex notorious for its parties. I'm talking vials of liquid LSD being passed around, every kind if addict stumbling around. For me this was perfect because I wanted to try everything.
One of my roommates taught me how to IV things like heroin and cocaine, and a good friend of mine introduced me to methamphetamine. My discipline quickly fell away once I started IVing Suboxone strips and heroin myself. One of my buddies in my little hardcore drug group died of an overdose of I assume both meth and heroin the day I moved from Austin to Houston.
Despite the change of scenery my drug use escalated. As a fan of depressants I was ordering research chemical benzodiazepines online and buying opioids, preferably black tar heroin, off the streets. I quickly became tired of the emotional rollercoaster of such heavy drug use and went into a methadone program.
After weaning myself off of methadone I gained a relatively healthier relationship to drugs. These days, I smoke weed a few times a week, take kratom a few times a week, take benzodiazepines a couple times a month, Adderall a few times a month, phenibut every once in a while, and do the occasional MDMA or LSD. With Juul and Snus I've dramatically reduced my tobacco smoking as well.
Life as an addict is hard but interesting, sobriety is boring but stable. Hence my more "balanced" approach these days. I have so many crazy drug related stories it'd require its own thread practically.
Some highlights include seeing George Clinton on 2C-B and dancing like I meant it for the first time in my life, trying 25i-NBOMe for the first time while driving the 100 miles from Waco to Austin (I NEVER drive intoxicated anymore), smuggling Suboxone into Germany and nodding off on stage while playing principal trumpet for Brahms' 1st piano concerto (and yet I never missed an entrance), performing Taps for Memorial Day at a paid gig while still tripping on DOC from the day before that was sold to me as LSD (I nailed it FWIW), how a good IV shot of heroin feels better than falling in love for the first time (that's why it's a good idea to never try as life is never the same again), dodging a double felony possession double misdemeanor charge, blacking out for nearly a week due to compulsively redosing flubromazolam (the "fentanyl" of benzodiazepines and a research chemical), and much more.
Despite my love of downers, alcohol has always been my least favorite. Shitty high with a shittier come down. Only enjoy it as a supplement to other drugs.
NGL I still have a few on my bucket list such as barbiturates, ketamine, methylphenidate, DMT, carisoprodol, hydromorphone, etc.
