For some reason, I have had almost the exact same conversation over 50 times in the last year alone. Usually its with a new women I am photographing in the midst of the "trying to get to know you" conversation. It goes a little something like this:

Me: "Nah, I've never even taken a puff off of a cigarette, I'm that boring. What drugs have you tried?"

Them: "Oh, I dunno. I smoke pot, of course. When I go to parties I'll do some coke occasionally. I've done X (ecstacy) at raves a few times, its fun. Back in high school me and my friends used to drop acid a lot. And man, I went on a meth binge a few months ago that was pretty crazy... "

Me: "Really? Wow. Ever tried Heroin?"

Them: "WHAT!?? OH GOD NO!! I would NEVER do THAT!! That's a SERIOUS drug! GEEZ!! OF COURSE NOT!! NO WAY!!"


I'm not the kind of person to judge for the most part, but I still don't see how heroin has such a huge stigma as a serious drug while most everything else is seen as a viable option as a vice.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned.
