Heroin. It does the body good.

"The painkiller morphine may help protect against HIV-associated dementia, says a new study.

"Georgetown University Medical Center researchers found that morphine protected rat neurons from HIV toxicity, a discovery that could lead to the development of new drugs to treat people with HIV-related dementia, which causes depression, anxiety and physical and mental problems.

"'We believe that morphine may be neuroprotective in a subset of people infected with HIV,' lead investigator Italo Mocchetti, a professor of neuroscience, said in a Georgetown news release.

"He and his colleagues conducted the study because they knew that some people with HIV who are heroin users never develop HIV brain dementia. Morphine is similar to heroin."

Yuck. Heroin.  Definitely not my party favor of choice. 

Why can't they do a study like this around poppers?

The high is amazing -- unlike anything else.  But yeah, it doesn't just make me wretch a couple of times like most people.  I literally vomit at least once an hour for a 24 hour period.

I could tell you all some rather fab stories of slumming off the Grand Concourse in the South Bronx in the early 90's with young Dominican boys scoring bags of dope and then getting plowed for hours in between the vomit and ingestion of bottles of Pepto Bismol.  Good times, and ever so adventurous for a little white girl from the landed gentry of Loudoun County.

I've also smoked crack under the stairwells of semi-abandoned project buildings while dispensing blowjobs.

Miss P has known that queen since she was a wannabe wallflower wagging her tail for me during college at Scandals nightclub in Richmond, VA.  I moved to NYC before she did, then she "reinvented" herself and tried to act like she didn't know who I was, so I had to read her.

Oh, and a mutual friend ran into her once in a bath house in Chicago and said she'd never seen something that large down there.  Can you imagine?

Did you ever meet or work with Green Velvet (or whatever moniker Ms. Curtis Jones may have been using back in your dancin' days)?  I always found his stuff trŤs fantastique.

Snorting and smoking heroin never makes me vomit or any other of the knarly effects you guys report. Also the high doing it this way isn't all that special.  I never got the hype but maybe I dont have the opiate switch.

I saw rich addicts with good doctors who made it to tritherapy and then had spectacular Lazarus rebirths.  That stuff turns your insides into stainless steel.  If it doesn't kill you or put you in the poorhouse, it seems to make a few people indestructible.

 X was my gateway drug (I skipped right over Marijuana) which led to Cocaine which led to forced Rehab.

I remember one particularly hot night on X, my ex and I wrapped ouselves up in christmas lights  (mine blinking, his non blinking) and went at it.

I have done enough morphine that the rat neurons in my brain are good to go for a couple of lifetimes .

When I was on morphine sulfate liquid it made me tired so I added a smidgen of cocaine so when I went to work and drank a bottle of vodka I wouldn't get droopy . I have no idea how I made it through those years but I did .

Chatted with sweetie at dinner about this thread, and he said, "Morphene is pretty nice, but only snorted it".  I woudn't know, never did it, but am up to a trial dose.  :)

Personally, weed, 'shrooms and anything God created is OK in my book.

Why can't you buy coca leaves at Krogers?  'Shrooms also.  Shit, it should be in every produce section in the country.

Shrooms rock . The last time I did shrooms was in Amsterdam . My buddy was high as a kite and running his mouth non stop even as he fell head over heels down one of those narrow staircase's coming out of a bar .

He never stopped telling his story as he went tumbling down the stairs and into the street where he laid there on his back and finished up his tale as if it were only natural .

Slightly off-topic, but not completely. 

I'm watching Contact right now and it always reminds me of this hilarious time in 1999 when I was in San Juan, PR.  I met this guy on the trip who was from Texas (though he was Puerto Rican) and I went back to his hotel room and he had the most massive supply of drugs.  X, Ice, Ketamine and some percocets or some such.  I'm not only a human hoover but I'm famous for carelessly combining all matters of material in rather unwise manners.  So at one point I'm so ridiculously high and this guy is trying his utmost to insert his needle dick up my ass, and finally I just scream "Hold me tight!  I'm fucking Jody Foster in Contact!"

Why morphine or heroin?  How about the nicer member of the familiy:  opium.  Surprised nobody mentioned opiated thai sticks... or just plain opium buttered rolling papers that make kick ass doobies... and I've never felt anything but good from that stuff.   
Maybe opium is obsolete now that heroin is pure enough to smoke.... all that stuff was many years ago in my glory days.

Ladies please

Heroin - snorted and I barfed all over my friends new Gucci
Morphine - given in hospital and was a godsend with a nice warm feeling
Meth - led to very smelly annoying people at my house when I just wanted to hide in the closet
X - VERY fun in the 90s but since sucks.  My antidepressants make that shit a waste of time.
K - I carried a cat out of my friends house because i thought it would be fun to take it to a dance club
Pills - boring
Cocaine----paradise by the dashboard light but after a 2 day high it left me and my cat staring under my door looking for the police.
Acid - mistakenly took about 3 tabs and thought the bar I was in exploded.  I accosted some nice lady on the street who thankfully directed the cab driver home.

Guess what though - booze made me do 10 times stupider things than any of them!

Shrooms rock . The last time I did shrooms was in Amsterdam . My buddy was high as a kite and running his mouth non stop even as he fell head over heels down one of those narrow staircase's coming out of a bar .

He never stopped telling his story as he went tumbling down the stairs and into the street where he laid there on his back and finished up his tale as if it were only natural .

Love this story, mad me LOL..nice start to the day.

I had a $3000/week heroin habit when I was 17.  I had to switch from cocaine to heroin when I was 16 due to heart trouble.  I never had the puking and other ucky stuff described above.  It was a lovely high for me.  Had horrible consequences though, including things I did in order to purchase it.  I quit when I got pregnant, and it was quite a withdrawal.

How dare you?  Seriously.  You are picking a fight with the wrong person and in the wrong thread, brother.

She is lovely and then some .

I waited a bit before I posted in this thread to see what direction it went ... and its a playfull one .
When I post stories about my past drug abuse I often use humor . I think most people realize it for what it is .

Its kinda like those old Cheech and Chong movies my mother didn't want me to see because she thought it glorified drug abuse . I loved those god awful movies back then and laughed my ass off but even as a kid I knew the real message was drugs can make smart folks into idiots . Thank god I got over the idiot part and got my life back on track .  

As for Betty ... She is not one to toot her own horn . She has used her degree to help feed and cloth the homeless . I think she is an inspiration and I admire her greatly .

Dude, how dare you judge anyone on this board, especially for the shit they did at 17!  Betty is one of  the most caring and helpful people on this board.  Do a little research on her past and imagine walking in her shoes.  I bet you wouldn't make it 10 steps.

You all moved me to tears, seriously.  What awesome people I have as friends here.

As for Kev, well, I imagine he's stirring in his own doo-doo.  He wants to use my past to justify his own crazy advice in another thread, telling someone to use whatever amount of Valium the person wants, without regard of medical advice.  I remember doing stuff like that, when I was strung out, so more people would join me in my misery.  Kevin, you don't phase me, seriously.  If that's what you're trying to do, well, you lose.

Hi Betty

I came late to this thread, but just wanted to say that when I first posted here, frightened and devastated, you were one of the very first who stepped up to answer. You shone in the dark, then as now, like a star: thank you.

    When I was in treatment I met a guy who thought he bought heroin, but the drug dealer must have left it in his spice rack because he sold him meat tenderizer instead lol.  I guess the guy I was in treatment with couldn't tell the difference between the two, he had no less than 100 holes in his legs and some of them went straight to the bone...

    Myself, I've smoked Ivory soap conveniently cut in the shape of rock and all it did was give me a headache.....  oh, and also pissed me off quite a bit.

Hey Betty.. you all love you and you're way bigger than that..   ;D

BTW, talk about acid overdose..

Acid - mistakenly took about 3 tabs and thought the bar I was in exploded...

I once mistakenly (don't ask) took too much liquid acid before a concert (if you're curious, the band is called the Charlatans or Charlatans UK in North American) in Toronto in the early 90s. I think I have begun to "loss" it half way and the last my friends saw me that night was in the middle of it I walked out the venue - they just assumed I went out for a cig and when they didn't see at the end they assumed I left early (we were all on LSD)..

I woke up 2 days later in Centennial Park, not remember where I have been, what I have done, etc.. best trip ever. :D

Thanks Mark and Komnaes.  And Skeebo, in this old apartment house I lived in, my next door neighbors had a party.  Another girl who lived in the apartment house kept bugging them, thinking they had crack to sell.  So, they got their bar of Zest soap, and cut out what looked like a rock and sold it to her.  She was already messed up, as she always drank all her take-home Methadone.  She never questioned why the "rock" was a green shade, nor did she ever realize she was sold soap. :D
