Modern humans must learn how to relate to psychoactives
responsibly, treating them with respect and awareness,
working to minimize harms and maximize benefits, and
integrating use into a healthy, enjoyable, and productive life.

The Wonder Drug

I was recently hospitalized for Diverticulitis and was given the drug 'Dilaudid' for pain. The hospital was givinging me 2mgs every four hrs. which was just fine for me. I had never taken this medication before and upon the first dose, I found myself looking at the clock counting the hrs. for the NEXT dose. I just couldn't believe the effect it had on me. It took every bit of pain away I was having and left me with a feeling euphoria that I just can't describe. It completely changed my personality... I was very outgoing, confident... on top of the world. The only problem is getting off the med. After I left the hospital with no more Dilaudid I was a wreck...mess! Now I have to go on the street to obtain a drug that is similar to that (opiates). What the hell that is!!!!
