Oh boy, big step smoking it! Snorting it is bad enough but you will probably screw up your whole life if you start smoking it. I had a secretary who always said her sister was a dope for smoking crack but then she tried it anyway. Within months she screwed up her job, coming in late and not able to perform. Then she started stealing from the company and lost her job and faced criminal charges. She went to rehab and relapsed, got arrested, then went again to rehab. I moved away so I don't know the rest of the story but it seems they keep relapsing.
I would say stay away from drinking if it keeps you from saying no and don't even snort it. You only get one chance at life so don't screw it up. You can enjoy life better without drugs.
before my sister became a heroin addict she was into coke she snorted it smoked did whatever you could do with it and i just watched her go down she snorted it so much that she now has a deviated septum so thats why she started smoking it quit while your ahead please. i'm not saying it's gonna lead to other things but you never know. my sister was so smart she could have been a writer and ruined it with that sh-t and when all other resources failed she turned to heroin i'm not saying this is gonna happen but what happens if your out drinking and someone has a supply of that instead of coke just stop now. also my brother in law is a recovering cocaine addict and he has to be on serzone for the rest of his life he quit 7 years ago and is still suffering symptoms brain wise i'm sorry if i sound like an idiot but don't get caught up my thoughts are with you i could tell you my sisters life story and he situation right now but i can't type that much let's just say her life is not what it should be luv and hugs kelleighkeep me posted
