Opioids


#1

Reading a lot of stuff about an ‘opioids crisis’ mainly in the States. Has anyone been prescribed them or taken them recreationally before?

I was prescribed for a bad shoulder injury a few years ago and pretty much had to stop the ‘course’ as I was enjoying taking them too much.

It’s dead bad innit, was speaking to someone I know from the states a few months ago and she was saying she knew three people who had died in the last couple of years from opioids and had a funeral coming up for a fourth. Grim.


#3

Had to go on oxycontin for a while after an operation. It was absolutely rubbish, just felt drowsy all day and couldn’t concentrate on anything. Got rid as soon as I could

Only had ‘weak’ ones (codeine) when I was having a particuarly bad episode with back pain. Didn’t finish them, but remember the constipation they caused was really, really bad. Bad times.
