my instant avoidance of ket.
a friend of a friend of a climbing buddy appeared at some crags we were gardening some years ago.
after brewing up this chap produced a clear bag of what i assumed at the time was chalk used for
grip. after some chuckling and strange talk whilst playing with this bag he asked if we would partake
of it in a brew. I asked what it was to be told it was ket. i politely declined to which this character
began an amazing rant about how it had changed his life, climbs better, improved social skills and
conversations and generally stating all facets of his existence were amazing. i totally mistrusted
this bloke from the get-go although i followed this one and only conversation till the urge to climb
overwhelmed me. his climbing was impressive and he seemed at one with the rock lol, after stating
it was kicking in. we usually visited the crown after a climb for a pint, laugh and a joke and then an hour
or so calming down to ready for the journey home.
curiosity got the better of me some days later and after some enquiries i was informed it is used as
a horse tranquiliser. wtf! using knock-out dust to climb i couldn't get my head round it.
prior to the original convergence with this chap, i was climbing in north africa and the middle-east
and had cut out nearly all white sugar from my diet replacing it with glucose-polymer due to burn
co-efficients and energy sustainability. i was always satisfied with performance and recovery times
between climbs by transitioning to a pharmacy-supplied alternative. i was of course questioned at borders
and airport customs as to the nature of the substance i was carrying at the time, however, it became
burdensome due to secondary and intentions to test this substance so after arriving back in the uk, i decided
to change the polymer to a raw-cane sugar which seemed to burn at the same rate.
anyhow fast forward several years and i happened upon my old climbing buddy in town. during a brew
the conversation turned to rolph and how he was doing. my old wingman informed me that he looks haggard
and has a multitude of health issues particularly in the bladder department. apparently this ketamine
rots the urethra tube leading to the penis and he now relies on an inserted catheter in order to
pass urine. again wtf!
further research showed this is the case and damage accumulates in the waterworks. i'm not too sure
as to other physical issues or mental health but i suspect damage is not just limited to the bladder.
i would be wary of this substance in the long term.
