Seeing Poetry  
When I was smoking, I had forgotten what normal sleeping was like. Whenever there was a gap in any moment, I could punctuate it with smoking. Now that there isn't, I feel like I'm seeing poetry again.

It's very hard to explain.

What, exactly, were you smoking?

Just cigarettes
Not marijuana, or freebase, or housecats, or crack, or anything else. I was very compulsive in my smoking, so I was constantly overstimulated.

Re: Just cigarettes
Crack = Freebase, dumbass.

Re: Just cigarettes
Well most of what I know about drugs I learned from my D.A.R.E. program, which taught me that freebasing was smoking cocaine, which was like smoking crack, but different. Obviously they're not stressing the right things in Wisconsin drug education.

Re: Just cigarettes
There is also just the concept of "freebasing", which is the smoking of some drug...which brings up the question: did "freebase" (smoking cocaine) come from the general "freebasing", or was it the other way around?

Re: Just cigarettes
I've generally caught "freebasing" cocaine as referring to the preparation of the free base (as opposed to the acid salt, which is snorted or injected, but nonflammable)... the derivation is in this case obvious.

Re: Just cigarettes
Sorry, man. Crack is just the free base form of cocaine made via a specific technique (cocaine + baking powder + water or something like that, IIRC) which has some crappy byproducts, but is generally safer to the previously predominant technique of actually using real solvents which actually caught Richard Pryor's actual hair on file.

That can only be a good thing, seems to me.

Good.
