One thing I have never understood about cocaine. Everyone has seen people ruined by it. If you had no addiction to start what on earth would tempt you to try it? It is a matter of curiosity? Self deception about your ability to resist? Are you tricked into trying it?

Every two year old I have ever known has at some point spun themselves round and round until they get dizzy and fall over. Getting off your face is a basic human experience. Other primates do it too.
