Long-term effects of occasional Oxy use? Drugs

I do however enjoy a small dose of Oxy (10-20mg) instead of binge drinking like my peers do. What are the long-term effects of taking, let's say.

I don't think am addicted, as I can easily go weeks without taking any. I do however enjoy a small dose of Oxy (10-20mg) instead of binge drinking like my peers do. What are the long-term effects of taking, let's say, 10mg once a week for about 1-2 months?

I don't want to bait you into becoming addicted or not respecting the substance, but I've managed to stay an occasional opiate user for years without ever having an issue. I really enjoy it but its never been even close to an issue in my life. Be very careful and recognize any bad signs as early as you can.

Yeah, I can't use stims without stressing the old dome piece. I get very paranoid or delusional when I come down even on lower doses so I stick to downers to avoid the mental stress of stim comedowns.

I trust myself to do what's right, and if that is to compley lay off the Oxy, then that's what I'll do. There's no way I'll let myself get addicted though, it just wouldn't work with my lifestyle anyway. Am I good -- is it fine to keep using it as a "reward" after a hard week? Or should I think about just laying it off compley?

This comment made me chuckle. Opiates cannot be mentioned without an obligatory life story on how they ruined a person's life.

That's pretty powerful, and you are very right about that - I'll definiy keep it in mind. Thanks.

Opiates are not that more addicting than alcohol. If you have any sense of mind to not get addicted its not hard at all. I have been using them 6-7 times a year for like 5 years now (along with all my friends). Dont personally know a single opiate addict but I know a hell of a lot of ppl that use them recreationally fine.

Plenty of people fool themselves into thinking they won't get addicted and they don't realize it's already happening.

Fear means respect. Please don't stop fearing the oxy because opiates are drugs that you must respect. "Once a week is perfectly safe" is just a rationalization. No one ever intends to be an opiate addict, and they all tend to say the same thing: few users are weekend warriors for long.

Some people like uppers some people like downers, some people like dissociatives, some people like shit that make you see weird shit.

Opiates are pretty benign to the body, the real problem would be the high risk of addiction. What makes strong opiates so addictive is that you don't realize how much you like them. Plenty of people fool themselves into thinking they won't get addicted and they don't realize it's already happening. I've snorted Oxy and heroin, and as far as intranasal use goes, Oxy was far more euphoric than heroin for me. Just don't underestimate the drug and don't slip up once for the (I'd recommend only) 1 month you use it, and you should be okay. However, know that you are playing with fire.

You're kind of scaring me, because I'm fully aware that you may be right. I recently ran out of the extended release tablets I had, so I think I'm done with them at least for the rest of the year. If I can't keep that promise to myself... then I'll know something's wrong. Thanks a lot.

I've read some pretty scary stuff about how the brain gradually learns to stop producing endorphins naturally, even after only occasional use. Is there any truth to this?

5HT2A_P 0 points 1 point 2 points 6 months ago (2 children).

Ya and lets be honest, most uppers are more harmful in the long term than most downers. While it is easish to overdose on opiates for example its hard to die from overdosing on adderall. But adderall is cardiotoxic and neurotoxic while opiates are hardly toxic if at all.

You seem like you haven't been using opiates for long. What experience do you have with them? The high they produce seems benign and like just a really nice buzz to escape. You'll think to yourself, "How do people lose their lives to this? I could never be an addict." People don't understand how addictive these drugs are. It's like with Xanax, you'll think, "this high is not big deal, what's the fuss about" but they don't realize how "strong" the high really is and how much they've grown accustomed to it until they try to quit or until it's too late. Taking Oxy once a week isn't far from doing heroin or hydromorphone once a week (non iv). You need to understand that you are playing with fire and it's the drugs rewarding properties rewiring your making you convince yourself that it's not a big deal.

Thanks for the reply.

Opiates are some of the least harmful drugs to the body physically. You'll be fine. However, <insert slippery slope spiel here about even occasional chipping leading to more heavy use etc. etc. cuz everyone seems to need to say that>

For a long time I thought I liked downers better than uppers but alas, I do not think that is the case anymore. I like them both but I think i'd rather spend a day playing video games on some adderall than sitting on the couch taking opiates or playing video games or whatever activity doesn't matter too much for opiates lol.

If it's your first time with a new substance, you should check out our Wiki pages on common drugs and the drug knowledgebase (where you can also find links to scales, test kits and various guides) or use the search feature to see if your question has been asked before.

You know, im starting to think I don't like opiates as much as most people... don't get me wrong they are great and I do them a couple of times a month but idk, I mean I like the high from a lot of things better, amps for example lol.

Yeah it is true, honestly if stimulant side effect weren't so fucking harsh they would be my DOC but it is just not sustainable for me, so I take kratom daily now and that works for me!

Around 20% of people who try heroin are addicted one year after its use.

I feel like you're probably right. I also feel like I can go for weeks without it, and it's not like it's on my mind constantly (that's something you'd expect from an addict, no?). I do know that I'm playing with fire, and I really am doing my best to be smart about my use. There's just no way my life would allow an addiction at this point. What kind of warning signs should I be looking for, though?

Fear means respect. Please don't stop fearing the oxy because opiates are drugs that you must respect.

So thats HEROIN users addiction level.

Support a good cause!

Yeah no problem, I love opiates but they're not something to do often if you want to avoid addiction. If you can go the rest of the year without any then imo you're safe to do them every now and then. Once a month or every other month would probably be fine but if you start to come up with excuses to use more often or if you think about them a lot, then that's a very bad sign.
