That Heroin Smell

My daughter and I were in the kitchen making cheese quesadillas. I mentioned that we should take a vitamin and she opened the pantry door and noticed a bottle of B1 vitamins. She said, "who takes these?" I told her the B1 vitamins were her dad's. She opened the top and stuck her nose in the jar and at that very moment all hell broke loose.

She screamed, her face turned red, her eyes started watering and then she started running down the hallway. I didn't know what had happened. I asked her what was wrong. Then she came running back down the hallway into the bathroom. She looked completely sick and I thought she was going to throw up. She was holding a tissue over her mouth saying it smells just like dope....and the smell was going to make her throw up. She just kept saying, "the smell is making me sick." Then she said the smell was stuck in her nose....I didn't really know what to say so I told her to have a soft drink and try to think of something else.

I started spraying air freshener...to get rid of the smell which was really nasty. She said it was such a shock to her system to smell it that it immediately made her sick. The B1 vitamins were capsules from Walgreens....and yea, they did stink. I guess I know what heroin smells like....it kinda makes me want to throw up too!

Needless to say I threw the B1's and the very burned cheese quesadillas in the trash. We made turkey sandwiches instead and we didn't mention vitamins again....

Wow! I've never heard that. I think vitamin C smells like oranges. I'm glad things are going well.

Vitamin B1? I thought American heroin smelled of vinegar? I don't know...

ours* smells of opium, incense, sweet-&-sour... and a hint of fish. Lovely!

*I'm in Europe and our drugs come from Afghanistan... I heard yours come from South America and without banging on for ages it's a different sort of heroin

PS I hope all is right your end...

Hi Gleds,
You're right...I think the US heroin comes from South America and Mexico. Laced with sugar, starch, acetaminophen, or whatever else the dealers have on hand or in their pantry.

Hint of fish? Lovely....ewwh....I don't really like the smell of fish....Gled's your so funny!

So sad. My son was telling me a list of his triggers yesterday, some things are unavoidable or just catch you off guard.

that may be because some heroin is cut with vitamin b, which definetely has a distinctive smell

yes i have the same problem. I smell them and it just brings me back. I told my mom about it, but she thinks im talking shit. It is true. Heroin also does smell like vinegar. Depends on the potency and how its cooked.

The reason that the heroin sometimes smells like vitamin B, is because it is often cut with it! I'm a recovering addict and have 15 years experience of that smell! yuck!

Completely 100% pure heroin is odorless. Although in quantities of 1kg or more of even the purest (i.e. 90-98%) illegal heroin will tend to smell like vinegar. It is impossible to make 100% heroin practically on a large scale. The smell of vinegar comes from still-evaporating acetates, usually acetic anhydride which form acetic acid(vinegar) with moisture in the air. As for the Vitamin B1 smell I haven't smelled that brand, but I have some Omega3 gels that have a strong dope like smell to them. I believe that if a person were to cut dope with B1 that it could easily be discovered by trying to evaporate some on tinfoil. If the pile turns black, stinky and grows it most likely has been cut with B vitamins.
