Hello readers, I will start with a brief description of who I am.

I am a daily MJ smoker, I try them all drugs, I have been addicted to speed, dxm, ketamine, and of course, hydromorphone and oxycodone/contin, all on different time.

I suffer anxiety, and it might be the reason why I keep being addicted on stuff.

I never had a problem with any drug, but hydromorphone was a real problem. I was really addicted.
I asked my doctor for Lyrica as it seemed to help me with my withdrawal. A friend of mine let me try 1 300MG and it did work fine. In fact it was a wonderful experience.
Lost of inhibition, music is great, skin feels good, finally I was happy.

So first, my doctor gave me 3x 50MG pill per day. At first I was satisfied. Maybe 1 month later, I asked the same doctor to up my dosage at 3x 100 per day as it seems to be my perfect dosage.
Of course I took all the 90 pills (1 month) in less than 10 days. Life was perfect. I finally got my dose up to 150MG 4x per day. It didn't take long for 1500 MG (10 pills) would not get me high anymore. Finally, the bottle is empty, and I have to wait 20 days for rescript. I find myself back on oxy and dilaudid because Lyrica withdrawal is THE SAME as opiate, just a bit worst!! So basically, for 4-5 days I am dealing with opiate to ease the withdrawal, and then I can be sober. No Lyrica, no opiate, just sober. Next month, I manage to take 4x 150 per day, sometime 2x, sometime 5-6, depending how I feel.

No more 1500 MG per day, of course, I'd feel great, but tolerance sets in SO QUICK if i'm trying to feel high out of it.

About Lyrica... I find that it is the best med for me, I let me stop taking Celexa (antidepressant for anxiety) I don't suffer anxiety anymore. Now I deal with anger. In fact I HAVE TO find a way to manage my anger or I will soon have problem with the law.
I get SO MAD, so easy, and it is not because of the Celexa. But it is a direct effect of the Lyrica, I GET SO MAD and a bit suicidal, but no one will ever touch my Lyrica script!!

I also think this drug will be more controlled later on. The recreational potential is 10/10. And it is also 10/10 for my anxiety, and it helps me not get high in life. This med could also worsen my desire to not get high, I really have to take 4X 150 per day. If I decide to take like 12x 150 in 1 day, This will affect me for 1 whole week, because tolerance set it, and Lyrica withdrawal is unique, I feel craving for it SO MUCH.

Just take Lyrica on a regular basis, and it WILL help.

More information about it... Sorry for the long post. I try to explain the recreational side of it, and also the therapeutic usage of it.
You can snort this med, it will get me high quickly, it tastes bad. After 30 mins I don't feel it anymore, and it sets in just like a regular swallowed Lyrica.

I've been up to 3500 MG of Lyrica and had a WONDERFUL trip (by this time I used to take 1000-1500 per day, so I did had a tolerance, I REALLY dont suggest you take 3500 MG for the first time as this will be WAY to much).

First time trip should take 1000 MG maximum.

My stomach doesn't seem to have any problem with it, my liver also doesn't has any problem. I don't have any after taste or anything buggy about it.

I can almost compare it do dilaudid! For me, a high tolerance user.
1500 MG swallowed equals to 2MG dilaudid, but better high and lasts WAY longer. Lyrica lasts for about 8 hours, and takes about 2 hours to kick in. Overall I can easily dose in the morning and be high for the rest of the day.

Also it makes me sleep like a baby!!
BEST SLEEP EVER is after a Lyrica trip.

The next morning after a Lyrica trip is WAY easier than if I had taken opiate. Even a half 2MG dilaudid would make me feel worse than 3 constant day tripping on Lyrica.
