Via ! I love it. After drinking about a hundred cups I decided to try something new. Having been a pretty hard core drug addict for many years, granted I've been clean now for 21 years, I couldn't help but notice how finely ground the Via is. Looking at reminded me of something else that I used to enjoy that you would chop into about the same consistancy, but came in another color. White. So I decided to try snorting some to see how that would work out. Awesome! I find myself snorting about 2 packages a day now. It takes about 10 minutes to start feeling the effect. And the drain tastes pretty cool. It's like an expresso flavor deep in the back of your throat. Keeps you going about twice as long as it would if you just consumed it the old fashioned way. What I really like about it is that it's totally legal. Plus, when I get pulled over I don't have to worry about going to jaior possesion. And if my employer gives me a random drug test..... No problem. They currently don't test for caffine so the stress it like totally eliminated. Cool stuff this Via! Now I just find myself hoping that I don't move up to main lining it.
