DOSE:
200 mg oral Pharms - Tramadol (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 300 lb


My first 2-3 experiences with Tramadol (in early 2011) were at fairly high doses, and combined with marijuana. Once, I took 250mg and smoked some great ganja, and I swear I almost relaxed to death. That actually concerned me a bit, so I stepped away from them for a while.

In January of 2013 or thereabouts, however, I had a root canal done, and was prescribed Percocets, and when they ran out I felt I was in a space to appreciate some more opioid yumminess. So I went online and ordered 160 tramadols (50mg) for about 150 dollars from some shady mailorder place in Florida. After the first couple of days (taking 3-5 at a time), I felt that there wasn't much more benefit from taking 5 than there was taking 4. So I settled in to a 4-a-day regimen.

After those first 4-5 days, I didn't get 'high' anymore from them. But what happened to me changed my views about what is possible in this life. I felt in charge of my emotional state for the first time in my life. If I dwelt on crappy things (like pollution, politics, oppression of humanity) I would have crappy emotions. But I now had a choice! If I instead focused on good things, I had GOOD FEELINGS! And my motivation to do my boring warehouse job was off the scale! Not like I had to work, but I was able to see the benefit (my paycheck) and weigh its worth against the time I spent at work, and LOGICALLY DECIDE IT WAS A GOOD DEAL. Once I decided it was a good deal, I had no constant nagging dissatisfaction!

I decided that all my woes for all my life were not a result of bad circumstances, but a tramadol deficiency! (just kidding, but it almost felt that way)

Even when they ran out and I had to go cold turkey, it was no big deal. I plan on securing a supply of these beauties for my regular use, just so I can stay motivated and interested in life.
