    Please be more specific. This post is extremely vague so Swim will do the best he can..

    By broken/chewed Swim assumes it is regarding timed-release tablets or the capsules with small beads inside of them, and that they will be consumed orally. If so is the case, most morphine tablets are made more <abuse-proof> and simply **increasing** surface area isn't enough to get past the timed-release matrix as they will still gel up. UTFSE. There are MANY posts about this.

    As for "is it bad for swim?", I amn't really sure what You is asking here??

    On the other hand, a large release of morphine into the system could and usually does induce a more potent but shorter feeling of euphoria.

    That could be considered "good" vs the "bad" but if being taken for pain relief I believe the slower the release the better, sometimes You should just alternate in order to be gauge what works better for You imo.

    I think Luvlee is just asking why one would crush up a pill of morphine vs other pills?

    The answer is very simply that when crushed, the drug (Morphine included) comes in contact with more surface area of the particular absorptive apparatus of the body (Depending on the route of administration.).

    The human body evolved villi (Small intestine.) and rugal folds (Stomach.) for this very reason...to maximize the surface area for absorption.
