do you use needles?
    #11195051 - 10/06/09 06:38 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

for many years, I was a pretty serious heroin addict, shooting up to a gram+ a day. like many junkies of my generation, i started by eating relatively mild pharmies (esp hydrocodone), began snorting stronger pharmies (oxycodone in particular), and eventually started snorting dope (tan/off-white powder) as it was a lot cheaper and generally got me higher than OCs. i had tried IV'ing a few times before becoming a full-blown junkie and am generally not skittish of needles or whatever, so as my increasing habit made snorting relatively cheap dope as expensive as snorting OCs when i had little-to-no tolerance, IV'ing became the next logical step. and as i'm sure many here are familiar with - either through being a junkie yourself or having friends/family go through this - IV'ing opiates brings about its own bag of problems - namely, addiction to the actual act of shooting up; this was definitely the case with me. as happened with every change in the kinds of opiates i used or the method of injestion, my already high tolerance continued to climb to the point that i was doing ridiculously large, unsafe shots in order to get the same kind of rush that snorting OC's used to bring me.

eventually, through the support of friends and family as well as my own determination to regain control over my life, i got clean. for a couple of years, i largely abstained from opiates altogether (and for a year+, from all drugs including alcohol & marijuana). nowadays i've found myself doing opiates very occasionally (pretty much if i am offered free/very-cheap dilaudid or really good dope), nowhere near often enough to the point of developing tolerance or physical addiction. however, when i do use opiates, i most definitely IV them. in part, this is because no other method of administration can provide the same rush that IV'ing can; also, it's the most cost-effective method, and after years of shooting up every day i know how to do so safely, quickly, and easily.

however, this got me thinking - most casual opiate users (that i know, at least) don't IV them; this seems to be terrain for serious junkies and/or people who are "addicted" to the act of shooting up itself, and your average college student (again, that i know) would be far more likely to eat or snort a pill than to cook it up and shoot it.

so...

You may choose only one
never
less than once a month
less than once a week
less than once a day
daily
STAL

You may choose only one

You may choose only one

Sometimes I will use opies 5 days in a row and sometimes I'll go months without them.  As for IV drug use, I have ever IV'd anything.  One day I'll bang something, I just have to pick the proper poison.

so the options in the first question might be a bit confusing...

less than once a month means more often than never, but less often than once a month. less than once a week means once a month or more often, but less than weekly. less than once a day means weekly or more often, but not daily.

I don't want to say to much or too little on this topic.

But i will say -today i cant relate but i can truly understand.

Once dope is an option as an escape it is always an option.  If you have no tolerance and are using as scarcely as you say then why bother taking it to that level, why the need to bang it?

I will not preach on your drug of choice-- but i have known many addicts (recovering, still using, and in your situation) and the ones that don't use needles [anymore or ever] don't have as hard of a time stopping all together. Your gonna do what your gonna do, and I dont even know you but I'm proud of you for making it a year without ANYTHING, that's a real accomplishment. But its kind of irrelevant if you've relapsed. I've cradled someone close to me as they detoxed from heroin, and they kept muttering about the cycles of detox (hot cold stiff sore etc) and I thought about how it wasn't just the detox that was a cycle it was the entire experience with the drug , with longer periods of time in between (being sick, being clean, being high, sleeping, and waiting around for it). I'm gonna be THAT annoying person for a minute, so bear with me; addiction has to do with the chemicals in your brain. You probably already know that but I dont think you accept it from the sound of your post. As soon as you pick up your drug of choice your brain goes right back to the positive feelings of using it, rather than the consequences of it. Dont even tell me when you do those things you dont think to yourself when you will be getting more, or the next time you'll do it, when its already there.  I am not judging you when i say this.. just try and think about it, and try toning it down a level. If you are ok with being clean for the most part then why is it when you get high you have to get the highest you could possibly get...

No, I'm not a fan of needles in the first place. I use oxy on a very very rare occasion but I always eat them, I've never even snorted them. :shrug:

I don't really have a desire to try another route.

A 31 gauge needle won't make a normal person wince.  The "OMG metal going in m body (freakout)" argument is a fools argument.

If I weren't so lazy I'd get poppy pods (or would have before eBay shut that down.) It's really the only opiate I've fucked with.

So extremely sparing use and no needles.

And I accidentally voted never when less than once a month was the appropriate answer.
