Let me begin this report by stating that today has been my first times ever experimenting with poppy seed tea, but I am DEFINITELY more than what you would call an “experienced” user of opiates, because I am actually an opiate ADDICT. I have done about every other basic drug, (alcohol, caffeine, inhalants, speed, nitrous, tobacco, weed, coke, crack, XTC, every type of pill imaginable, shrooms, etc) but I don’t like them; I only like my opiates. Er, no, I LOVE my opiates! I have done everything from the weak opiates: propoxyphene (darvon, darvocet), tramadol, hydrocodone (lortab, vicodin), codeine (Tylenol 3, prescription cough syrup w/ promethazine), fentanyl patches (I consider them weak); all the way to the stronger opiates: Demerol, morphine, morphine sulfate (MS Contin), and then my two favorites: oxymorphone (opana), OxyContin! I am probably forgetting some. Basically if it is an opiate besides heroin and methadone, I have done it (I would have done heroin, but I got robbed trying to buy the stuff!!! Possibly a higher sign that I shouldn’t be doing it!??!). But my tolerance to opiates is high! For example, two nights ago I snorted 160 mg of OxyContin, ate a few percocets, went on a drinking binge and still wanted more “killers”. I just happen to have one hell of a tolerance.

Next, it is important to say that for the past 24 hours I have been wearing a fentanyl patch (25 micrograms per hour for 72 hours straight). But I have not been wearing this for any sort of “high” because it does not give me a high at all, it just simply prevents me from going through withdrawal. This will be my third dose of poppy seed tea today (my first dose was about 24 hours ago).

I purchased plenty of poppy seeds from the spices section of my local big-name chain grocery store. In this particular preparation I poured in 300 grams of seeds into a pitcher (it says how many grams is in each bottle on the side) of three different brands of poppy seeds in case one brand had higher potency, or lower, etc. to ensure there was some morphine and codeine in this tea! I heated up about 1 quart of water to near-boiling temperature on the stove, and then poured that into the pitcher, put in a few drops of lemon juice, allowing it to sit for about 30 minutes, stirring throughout the entire time that it was steeping. After that, I put a thin wash cloth over another pitcher, pouring the poppy liquid through the cloth into the 2nd pitcher. Once all of the poppy seeds were in the wash cloth, I squeezed the wash cloth, so that the remainder of the poppy tea would be in there. I want my money’s (and morphine’s) worth!!!

00:00 It is 5:25 a.m. right now, and I am going to try and chug this warm liquid. It is not bad at all. Tastes just like a regular herbal tea would. Very similar to a chamomile tea that I have had before.

00:04 I drank exactly half of the glass, and I am taking a break and temporarily putting down the liquid, just so that I can get my bearings. I have a lot of opiates in my system from so much consumption of tea today, as well as this fentanyl patch that I am wearing, so I want to just take a short break, make sure my breathing is alright in about 10 minutes, to make sure there is no overdose. Although I am a seasoned opiate user, there is no way of telling the potency of these teas without laboratory testing.

00:05 Already I am beginning to feel a calm come over me. Not quite that complete warmth over my body as if I just snorted an 80-100 mg OxyContin, but definitely a nice calm and relaxation nonetheless. I am pretty sure it is mostly morphine in these teas, and I have never been the biggest fan of morphine, as it does not give me the best high, just a deep relaxation. I prefer the semi-synthetic opiates such as oxy over the natural opiates like morphine and codeine. They just give better high’s.

00:10 Physically I feel the same as five minutes ago, but mentally I am beginning to feel that foggy mind as if I had taken about six Lortab 10’s, which again for me, is not a whole lot. I am feeling my pulse and it feels pretty slow and relaxed, and my breathing is definitely relaxed, so I may hold off on the rest of that glass for a moment.

00:13 I took another big gulp… what can I say? I love my opiates!

00:20 I finished the cup… not much of a euphoric opiate high as of yet, but definitely the relaxation of the opiates. Also, when used earlier, I noticed (like with opiate pharms) I had little-to-no anxiety when in social situations like I usually do. I was very friendly and outgoing when I went out to dinner with a large group, which is only like me when I am on opiates. I have never been outgoing until I discovered opiates, and with this tea, I was very social and outgoing, and had a great time.

00:30 I feel very much like I took a decent amount of hydrocodone, or possibly Percocet. Not the extreme euphoric high of OxyContin or Oxymorphone, but I do feel the high very very similar to taking Lortab. Again, because I am an addict, I do not get a great high from hydrocodone, but this right here does compare to the high that I am able to get off of Lortab. I feel very content here at about 6 am just flipping through the channels that are filled with the stupid info-mercials.

00:35 I look stoned! I just got up to heat up some food, and I checked out the mirror, and my pupils are absolutely tiny (pinpoint), and my eyes are so so glossy, it definitely looks like I am on my opiates! And luckily, I found a glass that I didn’t finish earlier, so I am going to finish it.

01:00 I am just steadily sipping a glass now, keeping the same level buzz. I think I will finish my food and then try and get some sleep.

Overall it produces a great sense of well being and relaxation, as well as an analgesic (pain killing) effect, as I suffer from chronic back pain, which I am prescribed narcotics for (imagine that… I am also an addict!). But I will continue to do this tea possibly every day now. It will be a good, and cheaper replacement for at least one to two doses per day of my pain killers. It does not give me the same high, but it does give me a buzz, which will allow me to not have to be the hardcore addict (hopefully) that I am/was. I will never again have to face unwanted withdrawals because I can’t find/afford my drugs, because I can go to the grocery store and purchase a replacement for my drugs for only 10 dollars! And it is perfectly legal! I am definitely glad that I found this. I just wish that it was as strong as my oxy, but hey… beggars can’t be choosers, and it is good enough!
