My Six Month Love Affair With Cocaine

Once upon a time, in another life, I started snorting powders.

Molly.

Ketamine.

But mostly cocaine.

A lot of cocaine.

Every night, there would be a call to the dealer. Another $50–100 spent on drugs. Another late night, or all-nighter, fueled by line after line after line.

I won’t tell the whole story, because I already have.


I published it first in Ravishly, and now the amazing publication She‘Said’ has picked it up.
