    Doctor said pharmacies aren't filling his prescriptions 4/26/2019 6:45 PM SANDUSKY — A Sandusky doctor said local pharmacies run by three large corporations are refusing to fill his prescriptions of pain pills for chronic pain patients.

  5. Heroin withdrawal!

    ok I am quitting heroin but I mess around once in awhile. I don't need help thru withdrawals or nothing. Pretty strong will. But I was wondering if I had gone thru withdrawals and it's been 8 days since last used if I smoked like one little hit would it throw me back thru withdrawals bad or would it not do much at all? Just curious as to what everyone else has experienced.
  6. Addiction and Self-Worth

    As many of the people reading this already know, after trying to use opium responsibly for a couple of years (mostly in the form of PST, but also, occasionally, smoked), I've allowed myself to become addicted to it. In Cocteau's Diary, he declares that some individuals are born to become addicted and that opium is less harmful than the malady it cures for these people. Was he right? Is this just how it is for some people? Is it even possible for me to feel okay (not even happy, really)...
  7. Insidious

    The hardest thing last time I did my rattle was that I genuinely missed the ritual of injecting. Putting everything in the pan, cooking it up, drawing it into the barrel. Then putting the tourniquet on, finding a nice vein and breaking the skin, pulling back on the plunger hoping you're in and you register blood, then... pushing down on it, slowly. Nothing but the sound of your breathing and the beat of your heart. And it hits you, the warm haze wrapping itself around, that sickly sweet...
  8. The Pipe Boy: Part Two

    This chapter was a little easier to write, since I wrote it from the perspective of the female character. It's a little, uh, kinkier than the first part, so you've been warned. The Pipe Boy: Part 2 Alana From the outside looking in, we look normal. Boring, even. No one, not even our families, knows our secret. I believe that Robert already told you the story of how met, didn’t he? When we first started talking to each other, there was a certain air of resignation, hopelessness, even, to...
  9. The Pipe Boy-more short fiction

    The Pipe Boy Every once in a while, the pressure became too much for me to bear. I had given up hope of ever finding real love, but a man has urges, you know? I really didn’t socialize much outside of work, and I mostly worked with other men, so I decided that to give online dating a try. Most of the searches for women in my city pulled up a depressing array of candidates who were either attractive but vapid-looking or bright but unappealing. Occasionally, I would meet some woman or other,...
  10. Reflections of a Modern Opium Smoker

    I should have known to expect it, this loneliness. The absolute solitude of the contemporary opium smoker. In fact, I did expect it, but in a remote, detached sense which in no way resembles the actual experience of smoking alone. In general, I tend to underestimate the importance of my own emotions, and the process by which I have begun smoking opium has been no different. When I started writing last year, I was convinced that the biggest hurdle that I would face was the lack of opium...
  11. Opiates of my world: An brief insight into my use of opiates

    Here is a diary entry my best friend sent to me. It reads: I am a single male, 27 years of age born in the great year of 87' from London, United Kingdom. The lover I refer to is not a woman, but of course alkaloids of all forms derived from the mystical opium poppy! In my early teenage years, I always had a fascination with drugs and pharmacology. The first and earliest exposure to the knowledge of psychoactive drugs being in existence was of course alcohol and tobacco. By the time...
  12. The Smoking Room-Short Fiction

    Hey, everybody. I originally posted this in the "sex and drugs" group a couple of months ago, but it occurred to me that most of the people who are interested in seeing what I write probably wouldn't be able to read it, since they aren't members of that group (duh). The theme and narrative style of this story are very similar to those in my novel. This story is my first attempt at writing from the masculine perspective (I'm trying to challenge myself creatively). I would absolutely love...
  13. The Idol

    You and I, an unequal pair. You, the sum of all beauty and pleasure; I, your unworthy supplicant, a frail creature of flesh and bone. Tomorrow you will forsake me, but tonight you are mine. Tonight, I will sacrifice myself upon your primordial altar, and I will take you inside of me. O Idol, my Dark Master, Unlock the closed doors of my heart so that I may live forever! In your velvet embrace, my Idol, I am home. I am no longer a prisoner of the world, with its endless petty aggravations; I...
  14. Suboxone Journal #6 ( New York State Hoops better JUMP )

    Am still doing well this time around with suboxone , even with all the hoops they are making me jump through. My doctor normally gives me a basic urine drug test at his office , my most recent visit I did not have to take one as I was told New York State was requiring suboxone patients to take a different kind of urine drug test. A few months ago I was told that my drug test was going to start costing me $150.00 per visit. Im not sure if this new requirement by new york state will be what...
