Before I begin talking about my experience, I would like to give a little bit of information concerning myself and drugs.
I'm not really one to regularly use drugs for recreational purposes, mainly because I try to avoid addiction as much as possible and highs are more intense and enjoyable for me after being sober for so long. Kind of like a special gift I give to myself every couple of weeks or so. I'm not the biggest fan of opiates or downers. I don't really like to get 'fucked up'. As I a dedicated student and family member and being a senior in high school I am required to be very attentive and alert. So my drugs of choice when I do use them are usually anything with effects relating to amphetamines, mainly meth. Also, I do not like to mix drugs. I have discovered though that Oxycodone is a drug that I thoroughly enjoy, and is definitely my main choice when it comes to opiates. Anyways, I shall move on to my Oxycodone experience.
Being a very ordered person I tend to make every preparation and arrangement possible in order to obtain the level of highness that I want and to make the high as comfortable and fun as possible. I have done Oxycodone many times in the past so before I began I made sure I had a CD with my favorite soft/melodic rock music, a glass of water, utensils I could use for drawing or writing, and my laptop. Also I went ahead and smoked a cigarette because usually once I have codeine in my system I tend to have strong urges for cigarettes but at the same time if I smoke it will make me slightly nauseous. Today is Christmas so I made sure that earlier in the day I did not drink or take anything that would effect this high, like I said I hate to mix things.
After making my preparations, I crushed up a 20 mg tablet of Oxycodone (small round pink pill) and divided it up into 4 equal lines. I like snorting Oxycodone because of the much faster onset, nonetheless it gives me control over how much I take at any given time. I turned on my music and snorted my first line at around 8:45 PM. At around 8:51 I felt a very slight mellowness and I went ahead and smoked about a quarter of a cigarette at that time.
At 9:00 I went ahead and snorted my second line. Instead of snorting it all at once I like to space it out and sort of build up my high. By 9:07 a tiny bit of heaviness began to accompany the mellowness/relaxation I was feeling. Also, I began to itch a little bit, which is normal when using oxycodone. It doesn't really bother me though. I smoked another quarter of my cigarette at 9:17 (I smoke little by little after every line as to avoid nausea and fulfill my cravings at the same time). By this time I noticed that I was getting distracted every now and then. Aside from that, there were no other effects.
At 9:22 I snorted my third line. By 9:28 the heaviness became more prominent. Well it's not exactly a heaviness, it's like everything is softened, mainly my movements and perception of music and my body. It's slowed down a bit but not weighed down. Also I felt a sense of euphoria, nothing extreme, just a good amount of contentment. Also I am starting to get distracted more easily. I like to occupy myself when I am doing Oxycodone, but I tend to get lost in my preoccupation, especially when I am drawing or talking on the phone. Because of this, I begin to lose sense of time, it seems to go a little faster than usual.
At 9:32 I went ahead and took a few more puffs off my cigarettes and then sat back and listened to music. I started to itch a little more. The itching was really bad the first time I tried Oxy, but after a few usages the itching wasn't so intense.
At 9:40 I snorted my fourth line. By 9:46 I started to itch a lot more, but it's made tolerable by the Oxy. Everything gets 'softer' and it's hard to really concentrate on anything for a long period of time. My vision isn't exactly 'sketchy' or 'obscured', I don't feel like I'm spinning or anything, but when I try to read something or concentrate my vision on one thing, particularly something small, my eyes will begin to drift from my focal point after a couple of minutes. Also the itchiness compels me to rub my face a lot, but it's odd because it's almost like my face doesn't even itch, it just feels good to rub it. At some points in time I hardly even feel the high, I just feel that slight euphoria and relaxation (and the itching), but once I try to do something that requires movement or concentration I can actually gauge how intense my high is. I am going to smoke a full cigarette this time, which will make me sick, but I can alleviate the nausea by laying down and going to sleep.
In summary, Oxycodone is a great drug to use for relaxation purposes. The dose I used was not a large dose nor was it all that small. I used just enough to feel the euphoria, pillowy relaxation, and even a slight disorientation. I have used up to 50 milligrams before, which wasn't too bad of an experience but I got sick a lot easier, the disorientation was a little bit annoying, I would be only be half-conscious at times, and I got a little bit freaked out because I could feel my heart pounding but I couldn't discern it's pace or rhythm (at times it felt like it was racing wildly). Also, in this certain case I spaced out the time in between snorting my 4 lines a lot. I actually prefer to have snorted all of my 20 mg within at least 20-30 minutes and then go to bed.
The day after isn't really too bad, it's just hard to wake up and I sleep a little longer than usual. I have also noticed that Oxycodone can tend to work in the same way as Hydrocodone, at first producing euphoria and somewhat of a restlessness, and then making me grow a little groggy. Except I find Oxycodone to have a better euphoric effect.
