I'm an opiate addict and have been clean for over a year. The craziest thing I ever done that was addiction fuelled.

The summer of 2011 I had bright idea to make kampot or Polish Heroin I saw how it was made in Hungary and have shit it twice in Budapest it was a pretty intense opiate high. Kampot is literally massive amount of poppies all plant matter except for the root and petals. All this is put in an aluminum stock pot with water and boiled extensively and filtered with first aid gauze and boiled again. All the hard core addicts were crowding around the kampot dipping a many times used hypodermic into this opaque black sweet smelling water and eagerly sucking up this black poison and then they crowded around the sink tap and run cool water over the old style glass syringes. I saw them shot up this shit; I couldn't figure out when they would know when they hit the red flag or not! All 5 of these characters shot up sitting against the wall on the sticky floor that smelled of stale bad beer. They ALL LIVED and appeared to be almost twilighting! Eager to try it I dipped my syringe in the gunky dark abyss on the stove but only used about 1/3 of the dose the ones I saw did. Holy Crap that was an extremely potent opiate that gave me the itch so bad more than heroin! This nirvana lasted about 3 to 4 hours tops. This happened in 1994.

So I go poppy picking every day all poppies no matter how big whether or not it was hairy or not just kept collecting for 10 days. I had an enormous amount of plant matter in my freezer ( gotta freeze them each days pick).

I boiled the poppies after picking debris off the stems etc so it would be almost void of insect matter or dirt. Stuffed the blender batch after batch of poppies and wound up with a stock pot full of green gunk. I boiled it for about 5 to 6 hours I kept on adding water as it evapourated the water was an opaque blackish brown colour with that familiar scent back in Hungary and it also smelled like the perfume too surprisingly. I boiled it down to 1/4 of the liquid remaining and strained that liquid through 2 new t-shirts and strained it again adding boiled water over the T shirt each time to get all the morphine out.

Now I have a product that is slightly viscous when cooled and now comes the part that's insane I boiled it down to a stiff toffee consistency being very careful not to burn it creating 'smokable opium'. I let the black toffee sit for a few days all the moisture dried up. I smoked some of the opium and was pretty damn good. I decided to take the step further and add acetic acid 20% bought from the hardware store. I heard about 'Mexican Mafia Black Tar Heroin' and was making it. I diluted the acetic acid according to the directions using distiller water. I reconstituted all the smokable opium with the acid in a pot (I had about 1lbs of smokable opium) I heated this gently adding more acetic acid as it evapourated over time. I kept this going for 10 hours and decided to call it quits eager to sample the crude black tar heroin. The product looks like coal that was dug out of a mine but toffee-like. I was careful and only snapped off a tiny amount of this lump of treasure. I brought out a spoon and cook it just like regular powder heroin. It reconstituted to that familiar black opaque swirl of the Polish heroin. I could tell I hit the red flag cause I pulled back creating a vacuum and maneuver it so I can see the vacuum fill with blood praying to god I shot it up.

This stuff is so fucking strong I woke up with the room sideways and after a half a minute realized my head was on the coffee table with a pool of drool! My neighbour was pounding on the door and that woke me up but looked at my watch and at least an hour has past. I finally made my way to the door opened it and my neighbour asked if I was alright he was walking by the front window and the curtains were open. He made me promise if I'm going to shoot that crazy shit to keep the door unlocked in case it looks like I OD'd again ( the neighbourhood is drug infested).

So there that's how I made black tar heroin.

I was flying high for months till I ran out and winter was here so I had to go back to the powdered stuff (mine was better though!)

The crazy shit we do to achieve the blissful oblivion opiates provide us!
