has some generic morphine
sulfate pills. Thirty milligrams each. He doesn't have many or much money to get more at the moment. So he only used a quarter of the pill for this experiment. So around 7.5mg.
Swim took a piece of foil about 4 x 4 inches. Took the crushed pill and placed it on the foil, after "cleansing" the foil by running a lighter over it on both sides. He had the foil folded in half, although it was a bit crumpled so the powder lacked the ability to naturally slide down the foil by itself. Which is what swim is thinking was part of the problem.
He started out using his lighter on the lowest setting, but it wasn't very effective, so he turned it up a bit higher. He tried keeping the lighter as far away as possible as to keep the temperature at an absolute minimum, but it wasn't working very well so eventually he had to move the lighter right under the foil.
He got it to 'work' if you would call it that. He got some vapors that tasted like pill, and felt a mild buzz. But there wasn't really much chasing involved.
Swim put the powder in a small line, you could say. So it was spread out a bit, but everything just looked charred as smoke came out. I was under the impression the powder should have turned into liquid and ran down the foil, which may have been prevented by the fact that the pill is full of binders, and the foil had little wrinkles all over it (swim wasn't about to go downstairs and get some clean foil right in front of his parents. They would think he was trying to smoke meth
or make some sort of weed
Basically, swim just wanted to know if generic morphine sulphate instant release pills just won't melt like heroin
, or if it was the foil not being completely straight, or maybe a combination? Swim may have had the lighter too close out of frustration and lack of patience, but he did start out trying to be very careful with this aspect.
Obviously, smoking morphine pills or any opiates
is considered a waste to most people. Swim tried this merely for the fact that he can now say he's tried "chasing the dragon" and if he runs into some heroin, he will have a better idea of what to do (swim refuses to inject). He doesn't plan on trying this again with pills either, but one can learn from their mistakes and apply them somewhere else.
Btw. I did use the search engine, and I couldn't find anything that went into this much detail on the problem swim was having. Not to mention the results of smoking pills seem to vary from swimmer to swimmer.
EDIT: No. Swim is not going around saying "GUESS WHAT GUYS I CHASED THE DRAGON." He was out of it on morphine while posting this, and just meant he was trying it out of personal curiosity. Swim has been doing strong opiates in moderation for the last four years or so (mostly oxycodone
Please stop being rude and treating him like he's a moron, because he's still able to keep a grasp on his addictions quite well. Whenever swim starts doing a drug
too often, he takes a break. Swim has learned that the less often he does drugs
, the more euphoria
they produce. Swim even takes months off smoking cigarettes when he starts to feel overly congested.
I'm not saying he's perfect or he never craves some of these drugs, but he knows the consequences and how expensive such addictions are. And until the day where swim can get a regular monthly prescription for amphetamines
, or opiates, or a very cheap and very pure regular source, he's not willing to let himself dive into such an addiction
Not to mention, there is a severe lack of heroin where swim lives and he could never get enough pain pills to maintain an addiction. Also, he's not willing to steal and do other illegal things to pay for them.
Anyway, sorry about that rant. But swim doesn't appreciate being treated like an idiot and I had to defend him.
