    Anybody on here would want to share their stories then? I'll start - as of now I never used illegal drugs, can take polygraph test if necessary.
    Say what now ??? Not exactly a 'winding down' drug now, is it ?
    When freedom comes along, don't PISH in the water supply.....

      £100pd, 3k per month. if you add 3k on top for food accommodation etc you would need at least 120k salary to be able to manage it.
      Cost of living in Herefordshire, west midlands, for a single 20 something year old is going to be a lot less than 3K. You could do it even with 1K if you flat share, especially if she spends 12 hours a day at work and so doesn't have much of a life outside work.

        if you are doing 3g of coke a day and having the associated lifestyle you definitely do not live in a dinky 1bed flat ad 1.2pcm. On coke you most likely won't have the attention span to cook so probably eating out a lot, 1k pcm on food at least. drinking, going out and all that. Standing still for 30m seems like a lifetime.

        Call girl on her free time, daddy's girl or sugar daddy is probably her main job not a freeking corporate job that you can't keep with your habit anyway.

          Back in the 90s it was £50 and £60 for good quality. She's probably buying 1/8 or 1/4 oz at a time which would bring the price down a bit but you'd think it would have gone up since the 90s with inflation and all...
          Whatever...

            I thought it would be closer to 80-100£ for good quality. If you get the usual crap doubled with powder milk, you'll struggle to get a buzz on. Also there are some people that put funny stuff in it to give it a kick. Rat poison.
            2-3 years down the road is not the coke that it is killing you but the side products you take with it.

              You really are a bitter, and quite frankly nasty, individual. So because she's female you're accusing her of being a hooker or a tart to a sugar daddy? You really are a vile person.

                According to this - https://www.russellwebster.com/carolblack5/ - average cocaine use per day is 0.9 grams, with cost per day use set as £71 , from article dated recently (April 1, 2020):

                "I was losing my grip on reality, taking about three grams of cocaine each night on my own at home and another gram at work just to get me through the day."

                So it was 4 grams per day, on "school days", 3 grams on weekends?

                From link above:

                "It is estimated that consumers in England and Wales spent £9.4 billion on drugs in 2016/17. The largest market is opiates (£3 .8 billion), followed by cannabis (£2.4 billion) and powder cocaine (£1.9 billion)."

                At the price quoted that makes cocaine market of 24 tons per year, if that lady used 1 kg herself, then it's enough to have just 24k such corporate addicts?

                      I am a bit spiteful... but you can't realistically afford that habit on a normal salary. Math does not lie. Once you add the other costs of life, which is another 3k you realise that she needs 120-150k per year. The problem is that you can't stay in control after a few lines, you become jittery, agitated. It will be very obvious for the ones around you that you are on coke. You can't keep a job.

                      Women are a bit better with addiction but the only ones that I've met and were hit in the head like that, were in the sex trade. And doing it probably to escape the traumas of everyday life.
