I have been an avid fan of opium for 4 years. Recently, I would commonly eat at least 3 grams of opium a day and would smoke another 2 or 3 grams before bed.

At first, I seldom found opium on the market and would have to make my own, either by obtaining dried pods, or seasonally, growing my own. At these early stages of my opium use, I would be lucky to use opium maybe a dozen times a year, I would use various opiate pills (oxycodone, Hydrocodone, dilaudid, and morphine) with greater frequency.

However, this past year, out of nowhere, massive amounts of opium appeared on the Market in the midwest around the great lakes states. This is when my health went down hill.

I considered opium to be more mild than pills I took, but I was severely mistaking. After several weeks of smoking and eating cooked opium, when I tried not to take anymore and quickly found myself in the midst of withdrawal. Puking in a jail cell on bullshit trumped up charges.

Quickly my tolerance skyrocketed and my craving for the drug was constant. Eating opium is certainly addictive, but smoking opium is wildly addictive, far more than oral ingestion. Smoking opium may seem mild, but that is merely part of it's seductive dance, it is no less addictive than any other opiate. Some believe that since opium is natural it is some how not as bad for you. I myself believed this too.

It's far more fun to use this drug sparingly, for after time, it is no longer a fun high and becomes something I need to use just to function.
