In the spirit of moderation, I try to be responsible with my recreational use of opiates. My goal each month is to use for two weeks, then take at least two weeks off.
During my most recent two weeks of use, my opiate intake was rather high; this lead to an increase in the level of discomfort brought on by withdrawal.
Not wanting to bend my priniples just to ease the pain, I refuse to simply wean myself off the opiates...
...so like any true crackhead, I decided to experiemnt with trading one abuse for another...
One of my business parters ( ) is a fairly large distributor of Meth-Amphetamines, and feeds it to people like the sweet, sweet candy it is.
This past Thursday was the first day of my bi-weekly detox. It wasn't pleasant, and although Immodium AD helps, I wanted something for the mental cravings too.
Enter: free crystal.
My b0y gave me a free quarter, and I moseyed on home and broke it up.
Not wanting to really 'tweak', I cut out a small line <about 100 mg> and snorted it...Within 3 minutes every ounce of pain was gone, the mental cravings were non-existant, and my room was spotless!
When the comedown (which was VERY mild, as I had only done a small amount) hit me, contrary to what I expected, my opiate withdrawal symptoms did not return. I eventually fell asleep, woke up, and felt fine. Since then my symptoms have been VERY managable, if existent at all.
I'm not a very smart guy, especially when it comes to the brain...I know the effect meth has on the dopamine receptors...and I'm wondering if this was some freak accident, or if there is a direct link between the 'negative' effects of opiate withdrawal and the 'positive' effects of the meth high...
