  IV Oxycodone (liquid)
[Erowid Note: Intravenous (IV) injection of crushed pills/tablets can be very dangerous due to unknown substances, binders, and fillers present. Any substance injected directly into the blood stream should be very pure. Clean needles and medically appropriate techniques should be used to avoid serious injury or death.]
I went to a friend's house the other night to pick up a bag of weed, and he was tooling around with some oxycontin! I have always been jealous of him for not sharing them ever since he came across them.

He prepared an injection for himself and he shot it up. In a matter of about 1/2 a minute, he was really relaxed and just all lethargic. His face looked droopy, his voice was scratchy. He said he felt guilty for not letting me have any when he has oxy, so he decided to prepare a little injection for me. It was about 8mg we estimated. He loaded up the syringe.

We went into his living room and I sat down in a recliner so he could hunt for a vein on my leg to inject into. We couldn't really find any so we went for the ole left arm. I wrapped a belt around my arm as a tourniquet and flexed. Up came my huge veins and in went the needle. He pulled back the plunger and some blood rushed into the syringe, mixing with the contents. He then started depressing the syringe.

Once he was finished, it was about 20-30 seconds before I really felt it. It wasn't a huge rush, but it definately was a quick feeling. The initial buzz lasted maybe 20 minutes, but I was in a really good mood, kind of cool with everything, for the next 3 hours. Then I saw my vein. It was starting to bruise. Goddamnit! I wish I didn't do it in my arm, I thought. It's a small bruise and I think it's subsiding. I had better wear long sleeves for the next few days so my parents don't find out. That would suck... a lot... what excuse can I give to a small bruise that sits directly on a major vein?

*Background info: we melted down the oxycontin by boiling it in a spoon and then shooting some cold water onto it, causing the waxes to solidify and settle out. Then we sucked that into a syringe with a cotton piece filter. That's how we got rid of the time release element of it.
