DOSE:
1 lb oral Poppies - Opium (tea)

BODY WEIGHT: 215 lb


I've been taking poppy tea on and off for years. Sometimes I take it everyday for what seems like a month or two straight and other times I just take it a couple times a week. I love the opiate high. It's a nice, relaxing feeling and sometimes I even get some nice euphoria.

Anyway, just lately after years of using I started to get the worst withdrawals ever. I was quitting because I wanted to have sex with my gf which I have been putting off big time while addicted to opiates. Anyway, by the time I had been sober for a few days and my gf messaged me to meet up then bam out of nowhere the sickness hit. I started throwing up everything I had eaten for the last six hours. I couldn't figure out what was wrong at first and I felt like I had the flu.

I was all sweaty and had a small fever. I eventually looked up the brat diet online (diet you should do when sick) and went to the store and picked up some Advil and toast. It took about three days until I was over the sickness.

I started to take poppy tea again once I had recovered. I did this for probably three or four days in a row and then I quit again because I wanted to have sex with my gf soon and then bam out of nowhere the sickness hit again. I started throwing up everything I had eaten in the last six hours or so and eventually I realized this must be opiate withdrawal. I googled opiate withdrawal symptoms and sure enough I had them all. The one good piece of advice I figured out this time was to buy some pepto bismol. That seemed to stop me from throwing up.

One more thing I want to mention is that constipation can definitely occur when taking opiates everyday.

Anyway, I continue to love opiates but I wanted to mention how bad the withdrawal could be. I don't know what I'm going to do from here on out but I can't keep getting these withdrawal symptoms.
