What does a Vicodin high feel like?

You feel slow, nauseous, drowsiness.

AThis answer does not do the high justice. I know, it is wrong to glorify a drug. A feeling. The escape of one's life into the beautiful, crystal-clear, warm-water effects of drug use. However, you asked, you might as well hear the truth on the matter. Drugs are incredible. They wouldn't be popular if they weren't. They calm me. Vicodin in particular is a very nice drug. About a half hour after taking 3 tabs the room is calm. My nerves are calm. Very quiet. A peaceful silence. When the turn "euphoric body high" is used, some may wonder what this feels like. The best way I can explain a "body high" is to imagine breathing in warm air, the air feels good to breath in. Any touch of the skin is pleasurable. Almost, sexual, if you will. The nicest part about this vicodin high is that it's perfectly legal. A

In all honestly, its not THAT great. Like, its not as good as being in love. Or having a lot of money. Winning that "big game". But its a cheap, easy way to feel good about yourself for an extended period of time, without having to worry about what "they" think of you.

AI feel the effects after one pill. I feel it wears off after about 3.5 hours and on the box container it says wait 4-5 so i usually suck it up for an hour or so. I also feel that I am easily irratible on it. I just want to be left alone and when theres scenes on tv with people fighting or awkward situations i get irritable. You chill really hard on it and its kinda like being really tired and its also like when someone tells you a story you dont care about and u just chill and dont listen, except its that way about everything. Just follow the directions on the box.

What conclusion of an drug addiction?

The conclusion of a drug addiction: months, possibly years of your life wasted; delay achieving your fullest potential, if not altogether never be able to achieve it. Drug addiction changes a person, rarely for the better.

Putting aside the legal and criminal side to this question there is this: a Weekend Meth User spends about $1000 a year. A heroin addict about $26,000 and a Cocaine addict (Snow, not Crack) as little as $50,000. These figures based on people I have known.

I am trying to say: the conclusion to a drug addiction is the ability to look back and wonder why you are homeless, alone and dying in the gutter. Lepidus/jla

Can you get dope sick from suboxone?

yes....not as bad as dope. but it will definitely cause withdrawal

I would have to disagree with you on this, it will have to depend on how you ingested it and how much you where taking and what type ( the orange suboxone or the white subutex or the orange strip of suboxone) the orange suboxone, or sims or stop signs can only be ingested by letting it dissolve under you tongue, the orange strip can be smoked or dissolved under your tongue, and the white subutex can be crushed and snorted which will get you high, or dissolved under you tongue. Now with that said! If you snort the white ones on a regular basis you will go thrue a withdrawal just like heroin use ie.. stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, lethargic, mood swings ect. if you use them to get over the withdrawals which is what thier for and you cold turkey it then yes you will get sore, motioned sickened, headaches, constipation or diarrhea so you will have the same symptoms as a unusual withdrawal but not so intense if you dissolve it, like i said snorted is totally different! also, if you have been on it for a couple months then yes that means your depended on it and you are going to get sick, oh ya i forgot to mention the chills and sweats! good luck and you life will get better! go to meetings, addiction is a life long commitment and you can not stray at all nor slack off on it or it WILL take you over again, look up aa or na meetings online for info on them for areas around you. i hope this helps

What is physiological addiction?

When your brain feels it need the drug to keep going. This is probably the biggest part of an addiction.

Actually the physiological aspects of addiction are twofold. There is the initial physical need for the substance which will cause you to feel withdrawal symptoms such as:

Alocohol: shaking hands, nausea, headache, thirst, dizziness (basic hangover stuff) or hallucinations and seizures in those severely addicted (aka The DT's).

Opiates: Heroin, Oxies, etc. Nausea. cramping, sweats, itching, etc.

Then there are also the secondary symptoms that have to do with the brain chemistry trying to right itself after prolonged use. There will be mood swings, anxiety, irritability, depression, mania, etc. depending on the substance. Because people who are addicted can actually permanently change their brain chemistry after long term use of a drug these symptoms may never go away which is why anti-depressants and mood stabilizers (which are non-narcotic, non-addictive and don't get you high) are very useful for addicts trying to stay sober. This is also why studies have reported that up to 70% of those with an addiction have some form of mental disorder such as depression. Weather the mental disorder came first or the addiction is still being debated.

Drug Addiction

How drug addiction is acquired?

When you take your first drug, you are oblivious to everything around you. It could also make you feel good, it could change your emotions. The first drug is usually taken when you are around friends and are dragged into peer pressure. Most of the time when a person is introduced to their first drug and they are emotional or have personal problems, they think it will make them better and take it. The first few times it is usually taken for fun or just to feel better. Then eventually you start wanting it which is when you know you are getting addicted.

The above statements are true. However, there are other components to addiction. Doctors and scientists have found two very key factors in why some people become addicted, and others do not. In alcoholic addiction, there is the lack of an enzyme that non-alcoholic and social drinkers have. Work is being done to synthetically reproduce this enzyme, which is responsible for breaking down alcohol in a "normal" way. Also, there is very strong evidence that addiction is inherited. It is a disease. Research has also discovered an "addiction gene" that exists in addicts, which is one of the reasons it seems to cluster in families. For example, if two people have the addiction gene (the disease of addiction) and have three children, the odds that at least two of those children will eventually become addicted to a substance.

There is also the issue of 'self medicating' when another condition exists, for example ADHD, depression and/or anxiety.

What are the two types of addiction while using tobacco?

Being an ex smoker myself, being addicted to the nicotine is one and then a person gets addicted to what I call (busy hand and finger syndrome) which is the actual performing of; taking the cigarette out of the pack, lighting it, arm up and down movement, taping off the ashes, putting cigarette out. All these things become a terrible habit.

Addition: These characterize the two types of addiction: physical and psychological.

Nicotine is an addictive substance. Your central nervous system has receptors that respond to it and when it is withdrawn for a certain period of time, they tell the brain to get more. "Cravings"... this is part of the addiction, but perhaps the hardest to break is the psychological. All of these descriptions of what the user did while smoking. The habit. It becomes ritualistic and ingrained in our psyche that it becomes part of a routine that is even harder to break, many times, than the physical addiction. Our brain creates neural networking where the brain cells connect with each other and relate certain activities for instance, smoking a cigarette while drinking coffee... MANY people get so used to this particular combination that drinking coffee may actually trigger cravings for a cigarette-- or after eating-- while stressed. There are many activities that our brains our hard-wired (our neurons and neural nets) actually come to expect these things. In this case, it both the stimulation of nicotonic acetylcholine receptors in the central nervous system by the nicotine itself (physical addiction) AND the habits and rituals that accompany, trigger, or precede smoking or consuming nicotine which are built over time by connections in our brain itself (psychological).

Can you become addicted to fun?

We suspect that most people who are excessively fun-oriented (with the exception of those who engage in extreme sports for the adrenaline and/or endorphin high) do so as a result of emotional problems, rather than addiction.

Fun can be mood-altering, but much depends on how one defines addiction. The most accepted definitions involve engaging in activities that cause trouble in daily life, but continuing to do them despite the consequences. There are also the issues of compulsion and withdrawal. However, one must also consider the definition of "fun." If it always involved drinking or drugs, there could certainly be an addiction component. We would add that there is nothing wrong with fun. It is one of the things that make life worth living. If, however, it has reached the point of making life more difficult instead of making ie happier and more carefree, there is certainly something to be looked at, no matter what we call it.

Opiates

Will a GC machine distinguish suboxone from opiates?

Yes, but most drug screens done by Gas Chromatography target specific drugs or groups of drugs by testing the body's fluids for the metabolites left-over by them. For instance many opioid drugs metabolize into morphine in the body, which can, and is, tested for in the urine, or saliva by GS or by "dipstick" method. Some synthetic narcotic agonists like Methadone or partial agonist/antagonists like Suboxone(Buprenorphine/Naloxone) do not break down to morphine and their metabolites are not caught by the GC unless targeted.

Does i dosing affect your health?

No, I-dosing doesn't majorly affect your health accept certain accidents:

1: You may get addicted and need it, and if you can't get it you may experience cramps and such

2: If the I-doser did not check and used subsonic frequencies it could easily kill you (This has happened before, go look up 1000 Ways to die in google, go to spike, and look for Tone Death)

3: I-dosing can be expensive, and poverty can cause stress and lack of proper food.

3 Is common, 1 Is rare, and 2 is very rare, but they are the main reasons that I-dosing could affect your health.

How addictive is gabapentin?

Gabapentin is structured similarly to of one of our brain's neurotransmitters gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA. GABA affects our brain in a way that it slows down the electrical impulses that flow within or central nervous system. There have been no studies that were able to conclude how Gabapentin works formally. Users have reported that the drug can replicate some of the features of an addictive drug in a way that it can cause withdrawal symptoms and some psychoactive effects. Some users of Gabapentin have reported that they have felt psychoactive effects such as euphoria, increased sociability, relaxation, and sense of calm. Coupled with the withdrawal symptoms that can be caused by the drug, some users end up becoming dependent on Gabapentin.

Suboxone

Can you take suboxone and tramadol on the same day?

Yes you can, I do it every day and Im on the two right now. I recently took 16 mgs of buprenorphine in the form of subutex and half hour later took 400 mgs of ultram (tramadol). So the answer is yes you can. I do not recommend the doseages I described, your mileage may vary. There is a wealth of information of this subject of you Google tramadol suboxone bluelight.

You MUST know that subutex is not the same thing as suboxone. Subutex does not contain naloxone, which can throw you into withdrawals if you take tramadol with it. I've been on suboxone for 101 days for....tramadol addiction. I know first-hand. If you take them together the naloxone will most likely negate any relief from the tramadol, or, if you are dependent on the tramadol like I was, it will throw you into ugly withdrawals.

A bit more:

The person who posted above is only half correct. You can take suboxone or subetex with tramadol, BUT only in a certain order. You must take the Suboxone/Subetex first, wait an hour or two for it to kick in, THEN take tramadol. However, the effect of the tramadol will be lessened greatly, which I will explain below.

Taking Tramadol first and then Suboxone/Subetex will cause "precipitated withdrawal" (Basically, the tramadol is a stronger opiate, it's in your brain, then the suboxone comes and kicks it out, but suboxone is weaker, so you sudenly go into full blown withdrawals)

It has nothing to do with the naloxone that is in Suboxone. It is not even absorbed into the bloodstream when taken sublingually.

Finally, the Tramadol will not have the same effect. Suboxone works because it binds to the recepetors in your brain, without activating them completely. It holds on strong, so if you take something like Tramadol, it will have to compete with the suboxone for the receptors. Most of the Tramadol will not make it to your brain, so the effects you receive will be greatly lessened.

You have to be VERY careful taking Subetex or Suboxone and other opiates. I have cut it as close as taking Suboxone 12 hours after using a normal opiate drug, HOWEVER, most doctors tell you to wait minimum 24 hours, or until you feel your in moderate stage withdrawal.

Do narcissists often abuse drugs drink and have other addictions?

There are no hard statistics on narcissism because they often go undiagnosed. A true narcissist is less likely to become an addict because of the way that they view themselves in relation to the rest of the world. They see themselves as better than, and doing drugs/drinking/vices would bring them down to other, lesser peoples, level. This should not be confused with someone with a large ego, something that Brett Gyllenskog is famous for. Narcissits are also very commonly obssessed with their outward appearance and would not engage in drugs/alcohol becuase of the aesthetic effect they usually have on the user.
