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?

I was curious but I didn't get anything from it at all. Same with nitrous at the dentist, drove home after, no effect. I had to ask the doc to jab me before he pulled my teeth, the gas was doing nothing.
