I'll start by saying I've been a pretty big fan of opioids and opiates both for the past 11 years, since I was thirteen. I've been using them on and off for this entire period of time. I have always had a relatively strong tolerance to most narcotics, making me have to take more than others to get the same effects... Until I finally got my hands on four of the 2mg Dilaudid(s) [not sure of maker, but the imprint is P2], that is. The best part is how around here they usually go for about $5 a milligram, and I was able to get four of them at a steal for $20 total.

On to the story.

Earlier in the night I bought a 24 pack of beer and a half ball (1.8g) of cocaine, which I planned on sharing with a few friends I was in the company of. Needless to say the beer disappeared pretty quickly with 3 people drinking, and so did the half ball. So, I order another gram and pick up another 18 pack. Once all of that was gone and things started to die down, my neighbor had remembered that I asked her when I first arrived if she had any type of pharmaceutical for sale, to which she replied 'no, I haven't had any in a while.' About 2 or 3 hours into my visit she says to me: 'Wait a minute, I'll go check, and I might actually have something in there.Ē She walks in her house and comes out with 3 different Rx bottles, one was an NSAID, the second was Ambien, and the third had no label on the bottle because she had acquired it from someone else. The imprint on the pill (P2) was not one I was accustomed to seeing. So, I do a search for the imprint and it turned out they were Dilaudid, which made me ecstatic. She said she had 4 of them, and asked me how much they sell for... I told her the 2mg ones are usually $5/ea, which she believed since we were both drunk and coked up, so I bought all 4 that she had.

I had never taken Dilaudid or had it in any form, but a family member of mine always spoke about it as if it were the greatest creation ever, of course this made me curious to find out for myself. But VERY rarely did an opportunity arise for me to acquire any, and it seemed like when someone DID have them, I had no money due to bills and other opiates I already bought. Tonight; however, I got lucky and found them for a steal. (Still can't believe how easily she agreed on the low price when Iím pretty sure she knows how much they usually go for)

1:00 AM - Immediately after purchasing them, I crush two of them and pour the powder under my tongue to dissolve. I notice the taste is not quite like most other opium-based narcotics. I sit, continue to drink beer, and bust out the last 3 lines of cocaine that I was holding on to until comedown phase all while waiting to see if I felt anything from just 4mg taken orally.

1:20 - 1:30 AM - I feel the onset of an opiate buzz beginning (Ahhhh, the sweet, extremely comfortable and highly enjoyable warm nothingness is spreading). The effect isn't very remarkable, but still feels good to an extent.

1:30 - 3:00 AM - I continue to hang out and shoot the shit with friends, until 3 AM. I say my goodbyes and head home to try and get to sleep.

4:00 AM - I have been trying to sleep since 3:15, and this is made impossible by my occasional insomnia problems. I go outside and smoke a bowl of pot to see if that will help me sleep, another failed attempt. So I think about the Dilaudid I still have (hmm, tempting, VERY tempting)... I begin to read experiences of others online and I come across one of a 4mg IV Dilaudid dosage that intrigued/tempted me immensely. I decided I was going to try it this way, as I've had pleasant results with morphine pills, several times with both 15mg and 30mg Roxicodone(s), raw codeine, and alprazolam every time I've used these in an IV method. I prepare the remaining 4mg I have for IV use. Once the solution is prepared and ready, I draw it up into two .5cc syringes (gave away all of my 1cc size types). I decide I'm going to go smoke a cigarette before using what was already prepared, which also gave it a chance to cool down before use. Skip to the good part...

4:15 AM - I clean/sterilize the inj. area with alcohol, then I uncap the syringe, infiltrate a vein, and check to make sure blood registers. I empty the syringe into my bloodstream (rather quickly, because I am anxious to finally feel what Iíve been missing). I re-cap this used syringe, throw it in my container for hazardous disposal, and then pick up the second syringe. Again I empty this one quickly into another spot on a different vein (that way I donít use the same one repeatedly and start getting more obvious tracks left behind). I untie my tourniquet, and wait anxiously, even just for a few seconds before feeling the ďmagicĒ. The magic I speak of, of course, is the mind blowing immediate rush that always precedes the full blown buzz/high. The rush took no time at all to hit me, in fact it started less than 5 seconds after removal of the tourniquet, and was in full effect within 5 more seconds. The immediate sensation is most definitely the best (most satisfying) one, and the strongest one I've felt so far in comparison to ANY opiate Iíve come across so far on my opiate filled journey through life.

4:30 AM - The rush is long gone, and I am left with an incredible, and constant warm and euphoric feeling that I am all too familiar with... Although, it is a MUCH stronger feeling/buzz than I have felt from any other opiate thus far (next stop, Oxymorphone). Listening to great sounding music feels almost as if you're having an orgasm of the ear, if there were such a thing... I jump around on the internet, and almost everything interests me and grabs my attention, so I spend about an hour reading various articles around the web while feeling simply incredible all the while.

5:30 AM - Whereas most opiate buzzes achieved through IV would be starting to slightly wear off by this point, this one is still just as strong as it ever was. At this point, I'm re-watching 'George Carlin: It's bad for ya' <-- everything this man has ever done in comedy is incredibly humorous, whether sober or inebriated by any substance you enjoy.

(NOW)7:00 AM - Again, the buzz has still not diminished at all that I can tell. I'm really starting to like how long this lasts. Absolutely EVERYTHING I do feels amazing, every article I stimulate my brain with sends a feeling to my head that is beyond this world, every movement I make, any movement at all (especially stretching as far as I can...[morning stretch type shit], yeah, AMAZING). This has got to be on my top 5 list of opiate experiences, tied for #1 with another awe-inspiring experience I had and never posted about.

If it continues to be incredible and just as interesting as since the start, I'll continue the post later.

Footnote: Now I realize 100% why that family member of mine that I mentioned at the beginning LOVED getting IV Dilaudid when he was in the hospital for anything that required such a strong analgesic, which was quite often. In short, I believe I'll have to continue purchasing these Small Orange Circles of Opiate Perfection.

Hope the rest of you enjoy this experience log. I am DAMN sure going to try this again, the next time I can get my hands on some more. As for tomorrow night, it's half a gram of Molly just for myself, and I'm 100% positive THAT will be a fucking amazingly great adventure and a half.
