DIARY OF A SLOWLY RECOVERING HEROIN ADDICT

I used to take heroin at every opportunity, for over 10 years, now I just take methadone which supposedly "stabilizes" me though I feel more destabilized than ever before despite having been relatively well behaved since late November/early December 2010... and VERY ANGRY about this when I let it get to me so I try not to.

I was told by a mental health nurse that my heroin addiction was "self medication" for a mood disorder that has recently become severe enough to cause psychotic episodes. As well as methadone I take antipsychotics daily. Despite my problems I consider myself a very sane person. My priority is to attain stability. I go to Narcotics Anonymous because I "want what they have" ~ Serenity.

My old blog used to say "candid confessions of a heroin and crack cocaine addict" how come that one comes up when I google "heroin blog" and not this one. THIS IS MY BLOG. I don't flatter myself that every reader knows everything about me and follows closely every single word every day which is why I repeat myself. Most of that is for your benefit not mine.

This is my own private diary, my journal. It is aimed at impressing no-one. It is kept for my own benefit to show where I have been and hopefully to put off somebody somewhere from ever getting into the awful mess I did and still cannot crawl out of. Despite no drugs. I still drink, I'm currently working on reducing my alcohol intake to zero.

If you have something to say you are welcome to comment. Frankness I can handle. Timewasters should try their own suggestions on themselves before wasting time thinking of ME.

PS After years of waxing and waning "mental" symptoms that made me think I had depression and possibly mild bipolar I now have found out I'm schizoaffective. My mood has been constantly "cycling" since December 2010. Mostly towards mania (an excited non-druggy "high"). For me, schizoaffective means bipolar with (sometimes severe)
mania and flashes of depression (occasionally severe) with bits of schizophrenia chucked on top. You could see it as bipolar manic-depression with sparkly knobs on ... I'm on antipsychotic pills but currently no mood stabilizer. I quite enjoy being a bit manic it gives the feelings of confidence and excitement people say they use cocaine for. But this is natural and it's free, so I don't see my "illness" as a downer. It does, however, make life exceedingly hard to engage with...

PPS The "elevated mood" is long gone. Now I'm depressed. Forget any ideas of "happiness" I have given up heroin and want OFF methadone as quick as humanly possible. I'm fed up of being a drug addict. Sick to death of it. I wanna be CLEAN!!!

Heroin drought UK 2010/2011 life goes on (reluctantly)

THERE IS A TERRIBLE SHORTAGE of heroin of even half decent quality here in London. When London can't get it, the drought is usually nationwide.

The first signs started maybe two months ago. The last two weeks have been worse and worse. Total drought. I knew one person with what I considered crap. Then I found out it was the best around.

Then I got stung four days in a row. "Heroin" that just swirled browny-black dye in the spoon, runs along foil, though I don't smoke it I'm willing to test a tiny bit. But not with the highly distinctive, slightly opiumy smell of brown heroin base.

In previous droughts, by using extreme discrimination and basically by asking around, I usually managed to get the best stuff that was going about. When I looked for it. And there was still good stuff going about, albeit in tiny quantities, amongst all the rubbish.

The normal gear we get looks light browny-beige. A lot of the best stuff used to look indistinguishable from cat-litter (grey) but that was a few years ago. I have seen heroin in every colour from stark white to near midnight black.

A few days ago I was almost happy with the situation. Oh good now's my chance.

I was getting fed up of sticking needles in the back of my knees, between my toes, down the sides of my hands, up the back of my thigh where I can't even see.

But now I wake up wailing to myself. I am living on methadone! How can this be! No heroin. All day! Even if I "get" it, I will just be injecting brown water with the faintest opiate teaser. O how can this go on. Why don't normal people just hang themselves and be over with? How can life possibly have any meaning without the Killer B-sting? Akh!

Now I've got to run. Desperate person at door.

ANYONE anywhere, tell me what's happening. Give us idea where you are (not too specific please as all comments have to be moderated). How is it, and if it's bad, how bad - and why you believe that is. I'm also interested in hearing from anyone abroad who can vouch how far this has spread. I think the cause has to do with poppy blight and a ruined harvest in Afghanistan pushing up the kilo-price here... and no doubt across the water too...

DROUGHT NEWS FEB 4 2011
far as I know gear is still rank by early last year standards, but far more reliable than a couple of months ago. i really can't be bothered with it, which is why i have to go on what i heard. a certain guy i know with a 30 yr plus habit who's on methadone buys the odd bit now and then and says today's stuff with one exception that came from Essex is SHIT compared to what it used to be, the Essex stuff sounds like a fluke...

to all you out there you have my sympathy, i know the life i lived it long enough i'm still a junkie just a juice-drinking one. and my veins had pretty much gone and i'm not into smoking it. (and for the record going on the needle is my biggest regret, after going on gear...)

HAPPY DAYS

pompey said...

problem seems to be the avg heroin user think there exempt rom price rises! take petrol there was up roar when it was nearly £1 a litre now some places are selling it at £1.50. and avg being £1.20, also tabacco (fags etc) goes up 4 times a year! bread milk etc go up. everything does! and people are moaning there getting normal gear now but at £150 a single 1/8th !!! well lucky them, in towns certenlty mine its always been between £120-150 1/8th anyways!! even when buying a oz! so peeps get a grip. what ithink happened anyways is the people who smuggle went to reload 3months ago and were told there price would be 30-50% more then normal, and they though shit how the hell am i going to sell it, if im paying that,as wud be out priced by ever other peron. till they latter worked out it wasnt them alone who was being asked to pay more. then i guess they went back with tail between leg asking for it, yet to be told its now higher in price, and reluctingly brought it, and had to bash it up least twice the normal, hence the shit gear around, and we all no the futher it goes the more it is bashed. but from personnel point i wud happly pay upto £150 on a 1/8th if things went back to normal. for a £20 u may only get a .3 instead of .4 but everything else goes up in price. and consider there was a 50% drop in harvest the price was always going up. any shortage means price rise. heroin addicts accept the rise. after all most have excepted the shit around now! and importers no now that we wud except nearly anything, so the addict has really fuck themselves over by keeep buying the shit. even when know there anit GEAR in it! that we all have played are part in buying at some point! we will never have it again so good. as now they know what we will except. things will improve but we will never have the prices we had pre 2010

pompey said...

come on people where the info from ur area's? i know alot of peeps just take from life, but if ur coming here for info, least leave info for others.

portsmouth way is shit 1/3rd predrought stuff if that! and mean if that! cant even taste it via foil. feel rush via pin, but not very intense but normal prices though, but still alot of fake bollocks. this site must get visited alot, so please do us posters the good grace of not just taking info but leaving it too. thank you. and again big thanks to glenwood for mainting this well run site

East London Grl said...

My verification 'letters' (not word) is actually fitting for you as of recently Gledwood! Its therid, as in The Rid. Get rid!

Report for East London-finding pre-drought quality gear very expensive, however, 2 of our sources have this same 9/10 gear, which is wonderful, however not sure how long its going to last...no guarantees! But so far, we've been able to get it for at least 10 days in a row, probably more...maybe a bit over 2 weeks. £500 for an 1/2 oz is madness though! I have to say though, nothing has given me quite the amazing nod as I've gotten off of this gear-and it is certainly b/c of the H in it, no more funny benzo-fuelled stuff.

That's what's happenin here in East London as of late!

Take care everyone, and Hello Gledwood, would be great to catch up with you on Gabbly sometime soon! My sleeping habits have been odd at the best though, so goodness only knows when I might be awake! I LOVE the 1999 Warp video you put up...the good ole' days....friendly places, smiling faces :-)

Anonymous said...

Hey Stockport has shite,
It's light brown with no taste to it when run on foil.
No gear in it at all.

It knocks you out but but it's cut with sleepers or Largactil (Thorazine) or something similar.

Seems that there is gear about everywhere BUT london...?Its utter shit in west london street scene well the dealers aren't users so why should they give a fuck.?I am fed up ./omg my first verify was bullyme! but i got it wrong now its allycoli..is that alcolic?I hate alcohol.Nite nite gledwood and all you lovely people.Happy new year!

rie said...

can i jusy say to the person that said gear has gone up in with inflation. its the goverment n taxes that makes our fags, beer n petrol go up, n as they have n say or cut n our supply i strongly doubt thats the cause.

tomo r u getting good things as there is a couple here n they seem to think there stuffs ok good in fact but ive had 5 .2 bags n it did fuck all i was gutted im still smokin this shit with the bad cut as its the only stuff about that does any thing remotly like gear but even thats got bag 4 lines i got this morning, £2.50 a line. thats expensive even in mick jaggers books.

y is every where else gettin gear i want some.

Gledwood said...

Where I am it's like Anon says, still shite, far as I know.

The last time I scored it was from the guy who had been best before the drought but it was crap. Really weak. I did the whole 0.3 in one hit and barely felt anything. I knew it was crap because I tasted it wet and got nothing. That was just over a week ago. £15 down the drain.

The time before that was 2 weeks before (same dealer) and I got 0.4g for £15. It seemed a v generous deal considering the circumstances. The powder was nearly white and cooked up pale yellow with barely any vit C. It had gear in it enough to get a buzz from IVing but most of the effct came from a cartoad of downers that climbed on slowly and only hit me 10 mins after each hit. I was using the same sizes as I used to ie 2 hits to a £15 bag.

I haven't heard of anyone I know or know of selling pukka gear but in small bags. They all had pretty much normal or a bit small but SHIT quality. The other stuff I was getting before I stopped looked like orange juice with black bits floating on top. You had to fish these out. I kept finding syringes with black ends when I chucked out rubbish last night. This had the same downers as the other stuff. I was out of it on these downers and lost days of memory at a time, only blurs in between.

I reckon Pompey and others are right: the drought was caused by a price hike it has to be. I don't think there's anything like as much gear to go round the planet as the experts wanted to believe (no mountainous "stockpile" worth several years). I posted up a map of heroin distribution on Xmas day and it repeated the same crappy myth that heroin is produced in Asia for use in Europe and America. Most gear is used IN Asia. There are supposed to be a good 12-15 million addicts in China, India, Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan.
They say Russia first got a problem after their own Afghanistan war in the 80s. Now the rate of addiction is treble what it is here.
Europe has way more gearheads than America. They use a lot of that oxy and dilaudid stuff out there, not just gear. The wonder of private medicine!

The links to this are under International Drugs Info down the side.

I wonder if it will ever go back how it was. I'm not sure either. Despite all this stuff we heard about record harvests the price was going up not down. In the last 3 years it seemed to get harder to get really good bags. Or maybe I wasn't such a good costumer by then... I don't know.

E London Girl: I used to go to that Warp party and stay warped for days afterwards! It was always packed out at night, then by 9am most of the "clubbers" had gone and you got left with this amazing bunch of hippies all day and right into the evening. I never wanted to go home.
(I can't believe I mentioned Rosie, searched Warp Club in youtube and found her!!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011
I HOPE IT'S WAY BETTER THAN 2010
which won't be difficult

--------------------

u obv miss-read or mis-understood my point, i suggested every thing else goes up in price. so while there is a 50% cut in harvest there was always going to be a price hike, plus cost of living in the uk has gone up. hence people wiill always try and rise there profits if thewy pay mpore u'll pay more. never did i say heroin went up due to goverment tax. but it played it part, take baccy it wasnt to long ago all over uk GOLD-V was £3.50 now can pay £7 plus on it, prices of petrol also gone up . everything has hit fan at once all over the world.

50% loss of harvest
taliban ass'es kicked
nato cracking down on smuggling routes into pakistan. also i read most opuim turned into heroin nearby where its grown, due to more easyier to smuggle, as so much opuim goes into making so much H. so making it near by makes less weight smuggling out
pakistan floods. crack (alot of dealers have 2 habits crack is unmaintainable money wise, so heroin gets bashed) kids getting into market. world wide rises in prices on everything. raids.
massive amounts of users worlld wide

everything at once has played a part. not 1 thing caused this. and not 1 thing will fix this. as past 3 months has shown.

-------- well the promise came off. and more to follow. hampshire wont see it thoughas small opp. and goes fasrt in normal times, but its proper, and i had percy within 2 hrs of it hitting the country. so its pretty decent, better then pre-drought avg (speaking about my town) as 6-7/10 normally but this stuff always better. and right now its like rocket fuel. normal times u nod off it. im taking about a place between scum and pompey mate. but as said it wont go far, and go fast, but u never no if sumone u no, is in the no about it. i hope so


other then that just same 1/4 to 1/3rd strengh stuff floating round, no taste, dark in gun, but no black, nor conjeals, just shite, but via pin you get rush and warmth just not as intense as sud obv be, the price of the decent is dear though, but rather pay it then paying for grabbbage

Hi ppl here in West Yorkshire gear is about an off pale baige colour when heated on foil a thick dark beatle this is the gawchy stuff, on the otherhand scored off another dealer and 2 bags @ 0.3 thats point 6 in total.Put it on the foil heated it up and U could taste gear content but wasn't happy could tell it was cut with something but it still didn't deterr me, little did I know 4 hrs later I did'nt have a clue what was happening to me. Yes I have a fear that I may have been poisoned, I was feeling un well but really trippy at the same time. Its been now nearly 48 hrs and have recovered from whatever it was cut with as far as I know for now but it made me feel very very i'll.I woke up at 4.30am rattaling stretching, and yawning and trembling really bad,I had like a funny taste to the back of my mouth as I was panicking and debating weather to stand on the end off the street and call an ambulance.However symptoms seemed to dye off, but what I could not understand is why 4-6 hrs later from smoking this,???.Is it cut with Subatex am wondering,? have done Subatex withdrawls before (taking Subatex on accident on top of Methadone is not the way to go, i'll,i'll,i'll.)So am hoping this stuff has just been cut with Subbies and M-kat,hoping that there isn't nothing else nasty in there only problem is eating patters now and holding food down,but I hope this is it.My worste fear kind of chemical poisoning,or ANTHRAX that shit left some residue on my lips too.All sorts were going through my head at the time but was alot releived when the really nasty effects wore off, and once they did back off to my normal dealer who does .2's for 10, the other gadger who poisoned me does 15's better deals jst incase U are wondering why I didn't stick to him in fist place, so BEWARE peep's still dodgy batches about and if it does NOT LOOK RITE DO NOT TAKE IT.

Cmon peps, area an quality of gear PLEEEASE!

Oh a msg of hope, lot of peeps saying heroin will never be available again in bulk at normal prics and good quality - IT WILL...it may take time but wheres there is demand there will always be supply. It may mean a shift from afghan production to Mexico etc, after all they get all the coke over here from south america so why not chuck in a load of gear wiv it? trafficking routes already exist, so it will happen, when the big boys wake up and realise there is money to be made

not sure about newport/bristol either so anyone got any info be grateful to hear it.orange stuff that spits on the foil in welsh valleys.i've gotta move !!!!! help

Gledwood said...

O don't talk about Mexican gear, please. That's the very lowest of the low. People moan about Afghan being not as good as Burmese, but Afghan #3 is merely a couple of steps away from true China White. Mexican Tar is so dire I doubt even the most expert chemist could turn that into China White.

The Mexican cartels are so half-arsed they left out as many steps as possible in the production process. I even heard they used white spirit vinegar instead of acetic anhydride. Mexican has that "tarry" appearance because opium is tarry. They haven't even got rud of the opium latex. This stuff is a killer. It rots the veins faster than any other type of gear, it can cause botulism because it's so damp. It's nothing like that hash-like gear we sometimes get here, tar literally is so sticky it will stick to the end of your finger. I posted up a documaentary on by random blog, if you want to see tar, it's in the vey first shot on screen one, here:

http://gledwoodvideo.blogspot.com/2010/11/black-tar-heroin-dark-end.html

Although it's hopelessly low grade, tar isn't necessarily weak. It contains high levels of 6MAM, which is basically what diamorphine turns into when it gets wet. And Mexican gear is very dank and wet indeed!

Please no let's not have Mexican gear. The Colombians are true experts in drug production. In the late 80s when they decided to add heroin to their menu, they brought over experts from Thailand who were able to produce H4 with 97% purity, same as the best gear from Burma aand Laos. It's THIS stuff we want. Not that Mexican shit!

As y'all might know I relapsed back to gear for about 6 days and I can tell you the quality is NOTHING like what it was. If you've been using constantly throughout this drought and you think you're getting good gear now youpre probably conning yoursself. A mate of mine accosted me on the street, saying he knew soeone with "nine out of ten". Once he realized I had a score on me we ran down the park. Turned out I knew this dealer anyway. I never dealt with him as the last 3 times his wares were so shockingly dire it was unreal. Anyway for £20 I got 0.2g of gear most people would have rated a 4 out of 10 before the drought. And that's being generous. Yeah there was gear in it. yeah I felt it. Yeah it knocked me out. But I haven't been using heavily for a long long time. I expect FAR better from a £20 bag. For one thing I used to do a £20 in 2 or even 3 hits. This past week everything I bought I hit up in one. And that just about says everything. Don't kid yourselves. The gear's still crap. You've all just got used to taking crap. It's going to be a long, long time until things ever get back anywhere near where they were a few months back. Sorry to be pessimistic, I'm only saying what I see.

All the best to y'all. Thanks for the comments. Be safe and be lucky

In the late 80s when they decided to add heroin to their menu, they brought over experts from Thailand who were able to produce H4 with 97% purity, same as the best gear from Burma aand Laos. It's THIS stuff we want. Not that Mexican shit!

As y'all might know I relapsed back to gear for about 6 days and I can tell you the quality is NOTHING like what it was. If you've been using constantly throughout this drought and you think you're getting good gear now youpre probably conning yoursself. A mate of mine accosted me on the street, saying he knew soeone with "nine out of ten". Once he realized I had a score on me we ran down the park. Turned out I knew this dealer anyway. I never dealt with him as the last 3 times his wares were so shockingly dire it was unreal. Anyway for £20 I got 0.2g of gear most people would have rated a 4 out of 10 before the drought. And that's being generous. Yeah there was gear in it. yeah I felt it. Yeah it knocked me out. But I haven't been using heavily for a long long time. I expect FAR better from a £20 bag. For one thing I used to do a £20 in 2 or even 3 hits. This past week everything I bought I hit up in one. And that just about says everything. Don't kid yourselves. The gear's still crap. You've all just got used to taking crap. It's going to be a long, long time until things ever get back anywhere near where they were a few months back. Sorry to be pessimistic, I'm only saying what I see.

All the best to y'all. Thanks for the comments. Be safe and be lucky

Birmingham still predominantly shit. Anything with any sort of H content gets bought up, like 20 bags a time and gone. Getting replaced with nothing or just bash. So availability variable, quality shit - average at best.

IMO this drought is being deliberately sustained to raise prices and increase profit levels for the international crews & their shady Masonic connections who run the gear into the country.

Back in the day when the Taliban ran Afghan, they spoke openly of dropping the "heroin bomb" on the West; by which they meant creating a mass wave of addiction, and then turning off the tap. Perhaps that is what is happening here?

Having read The Politics of Heroin, [CIA complicity in the global drug trade] by Alfred McCoy, and being old enough to remember the Iran/Contra CIA coke scandal, I am convinced Western govt's have for decades used the drug war as a ruse to raise secret black budgets which are beyond any form of scrutiny. This goes a long way towards explaining why governments refuse to even examine the case for legalisation, and keep what is without doubt the most destructive, divisive social policy in place. Unless of course you look at prohibition from a revenue generating angle, in which case its a roaring sucess. What's to say this drought isn't just their market manipulation to drive the gram price back up to the old 1980's level of £100/gram. After all Cameron has been telling us to expect lots of pain.....

Personally I am lucky, as I get 'done amps & MST on script, but the word round my way, [South West London] is of a market full of bunko gear, & lots of desperate people...

Why the fuck can't things ever go the *other* way, and instead of there being a drought, the Afghani's decide to upgrade the heroin quality for the European market, to the same as they send to the USA, and we start getting lots of nice white No.4, or at least gear that dissolves when it gets wet, without having to add citric or VitC? Then again if that happened, I'd start using street gear again..

Where's the Burmese when you need them...

Methadone amps and MST ~ that's precisely what I am going to ask for when I go on a private script.

When I win the lottery.

You know I read somewhere that the Wa in Northern Burma were actually taking Afghan H3 and turning it into H4. Poppy production in Burma in the 2000s fell to a tiny fraction of what it was in the peak years of the 1980s and 1990s.

I'm pissed off at that fucking vitamin C shit I have to inject in my veins. That's one big reason I gave up gear, even when it was good I thought it was lousy. Anything that's not pure white H4 is by its very nature half-arsed, half-baked, half-done. Finish the fucking job off properly and make the gear we actually WANT.

You know they DO make #4 in Afghanistan, it costs 25% more on the kilo but decent H4 should be a good 25% stronger at manufacture than brown ANYHOW. I first heard this on ITN News of all places! There was a story on crimewatch where carpets imported from Afghanistan were found to contain drinking straws woven in, each full of heroin and a lot of that heroin was #4. Online reports claimed it was doing the rounds in 2009 but I never saw it then. I've only knowingly come across H4 twice in 12 years. The last time was in the 2008 drought, I got something that looked like crystalline crack of very good quality. I did one point and found myself gauwched over the sink (probably thinking I was flushing out the needle)... not knowing what day it was. Happy days!!

If any drug importing bastgard IS reading this BRING US THE GEAR WE WANT. CHINA WHITE. COLOMBIAN WHITE. AFGHAN WHITE. HEROIN HYDROCHLORIDE. NUMBER FOUR. IF YOU KNOW YOUR BUSINESS YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. IF YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT "NUMBER FOUR" MEANS WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING IN THE DRUGS BUSINESS?

Hey I used gear all last week except today. I rang the dealer. His idiot "cousin"/whoever answered. Wanted to meet me at a place not convenient for me. However I did pass a Chinaese takeaway on my way down there. So the Chinese got £6.50 of my £20 note. Then I switched my phone off ha ha bloody HAR.

Hi Gledwood, everyone...
What I actually meant in my post re: Mexico, was more that the Mexicans, aswell as producing shit gear, are also responsible for Importing most, if not all of the heroin that comes from south america into the States, as well as the coke of course. They also traffic most coke, and some heroin from SA to the European market, and ultimately us, via Africa, spain etc. So what I was meaning is, would it be so hard to simply ship a load of H4 with the coke that is already on its way here? Why dont they anyway? Do u reckon they are aware of our drought here? Also Gledwood, can u answer this please? In the proper Afghan gear we get, that I have been smoking for 6 years ( the tan to brown stuff, smells bitter, fishy etc, can smell it through the wrap, runs dead clean on foil and gives u a decent lung full of smoke)..well I always wondered what that was cut with, at source, that makes it turn to liquid when heated? I thought quinine, however now I believe that perhaps it isnt cut at all, and that it is just by products from production? I believe this cos I've witnessed how fucking useless our dealers are at cutting over the last few months..can u shed any light on this for me. Also, whilst Afghan is fairly standardized, there have been a few times where I have got brown gear that is a cut above-smells fuckin lovely and gets u off only a few lines-is this just gear that was produced more successfully at source, to a higher purity with less waste product, or merely gear that is less cut? Sorry for long msg, I could write so much more believe me. Oh and one more thing Gledders, read the wikipedia article on Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin Guzman Loera-interesting if like me u are fascinated by thet sorta thing. Peace.
PS Verification word 'dical' - just an 'on' away from diconal!

hiya gledwood,I had a look at that video of mexican tar,bloody hell,compared to what i've been getting,the effects look pretty good....but can you smoke it?I wouldn't want to risk my non existant veins on that stuff,t'is true.I am sick of bloating out on methadone.I hate the stuff.It took awhile,but now i am nearly fat after being a naturally skinny person all my life...if i was to reduce of the meth then all my anxiety states would return making me unable to function.Round and around it goes.
I love reading your writing xx

fucked if i want no4, nor does any other smoker, pre drought afghani brown will do me and id imagine a decent proportion of the peeps on here just fine

Gledwood said...

Apparently you can smoke Tar. I doubt it would smoke as well as Afghan, being damp and all...

... as for H4 I wanted it because I was an injector. I read a memoir from Australia by Kate Holden and she claims to have done China White every day for 5 years without moving further than the crooks of her arms!

I was on Afghan for 10 years and barely have a single vein left apart from my neck and my groin. I dread having to get a blood test. To be frank I'd rather they cut me with a scalpel and collected the blood in a jar.

I used to smoke gear when I barely had a habit, then I switched to the needle to save money. I had a go at smoking it a few times over the years, but couldn't feel anything at all. The feeling I really liked off gear was the flush of it going straight into my system which of course you don't get with smoking.

As for smoking gear on a crack bottle I think anyone who gets high like that could go raving all night on a couple of red smarties. Puts the taste of gear in your mouth and that's all. Total placebo!

If only someone could come up with a version of gear that piped as effectively as proper decent crack, they'd make a fortune!

STKD said...

Please stop this. As somebody said, it has got so weak you can't feel it then why not stop, is this not a chance to try to get clean?

Leftleg said...

Alright guys,
Quick update....Gleds,your so right with what your saying about the quality of gear around,I know I mentioned it before but it took a while to realise,there is no 9/10 as much as we kid ourselves.Yeah,there is some better stuff out there but its nothing sparkling in terms of what were used to,probably average or even below.Difference is that it was awful for so long that anything with a decent amount of opiate in will get us there!But that even seems to be on the more expensive side,or you only get small bags,or short weights for your money.Ive been getting mainly 2 types for the last month or so,one of them is more traditional stuff but expensive and only available in small amounts and the other which is plentiful n cheap,but as a shit load of Benzo in it,you can tell,it doesn need much citric to cook up and it is a bit inky towards centre of spoon,needs a good stir to dilute into all the water.Like I mentioned before mixing them is the best bet!!I think the gouch Im getting is only partially opiate induced as I find myself missing a few hours here and there with little or no recollection of what iv been doin.To be honest Im scared that at the end of all this Im gonna be so used to Benzos that Il have a benzo withdrawal to do which Ive heard is awful!Good thing about all this is that I wont waste my money on large amounts and cane them in a day anymore,a couple of bags mixed in week most evenings then when Im off work over the weekend I'l have a bit more and my green habit is down to 40ml.Anyways,nothin seems to be changing,we seem to be in a bit of a limbo state where we've all adjusted to what were getting and either fucked it off or accepted it,thats probably the reason for the lack of posts,I doubt everyones suddenly getting banging gear whilst some of us old heads who know the right folk are still only gettin 'ok'!Hope ur all ok,respect goes out to- gleds,doopsy,sids et al-

Lefty

Verification - senest - I got no sense fillin my veins wi this shite?

Gledwood said...

STKD: yep I'm with you there. Total waste of time. Wish I hadn't wasted ten years on it. I wasted all last week on it and am still fighting to stop. At least I am now "fighting addiction". Most addicts don't "fight heroin addiction" (well I never did!) ~ they might well do in the beginning, but then they accept they're an addict and use and use and use saying perhaps that they want to stop and probably meaning it. But they don't stop. They go on and on using, because once you've lost everything, heroin's all you've got. When an addict gives up heroin they feel they have nothing at all, nothing to live for. Of course heroin has destroyed much of their life, but that's not the way it seems. The drug is very deceptive. It has nothing at all to do with "recapturing that first time high" as you hear addicts parrot. Addicts who have heard other addicts say the same and think that's what's expected on a drugs documentary. Heroin is v similar to cigarettes in that the first try usually just makes you feel sick and weird. Heroin is very much an acquired taste, once you've acquired it and it's working the heroin magic you're already addicted and it's too late. My advice to anyone caught up in this drought who's relatively new to this shit is LEAVE IT BEHIND YOU NOW WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE. Heroin addiction never gets any better. The drug feels weaker and weaker and more disappointing the longer you go on taking it. True, once in a while it will unexpectedly give a little of the old magic back. But all you're doing really is giving yourself an extra bodily function to have to fulfill. Being on heroin is like waking up busting for a piss and having to wait an hour and pay at least £10 for the privilege. It's no more exciting than that. So I'm with you totally. Heroin: biggest waste of time going.

Gledwood said...

Leftleg: before I gave up in early December there was incredibly strong downers going around masquerading as gear. Yeah there was enough gear in there to feel it flushing into me, but no high as such. The high crept up slowly, then I realized I was cross-eyed. Whenever I sat down I fell asleep. And I could not remember anything I'd done. Unlike last week when I was hitting up whole £20 bags at a time, this stuff was getting divided by 3 and was STILL knocking me for 6.

I wouldn't worry about getting a benzo habit unless you really go for it for several months minimum. Far as I know a full-on benzo habit takes years to develop and then it really is nasty trying to come off.

There was stuff going around in early summer that reeked of B. It was pretty strong. A good hit cooked up midnight black. I hit up 0.3g which is more than I'd usually do but I was going to a funeral. Well I never made it because this stuff was packed with benzos. I've never heard of benzos being black but this stuff cooked up black (it looked like normal beige rocky stuff in the bag). The dealer was doing enormous deals so I was off my head for weeks on end. I nicked a piss test and checked my own urine and surprise surprise benzo positive, even though I hadn't popped a Valium or anything else since I couldn't remember when. So that stuff's been about for a while.

If you're holding down a job while using you're doing really well. I bet you don't do much crack though! That's the one that really messes most people's heads up. I once lived in B&B with a crackhead, 2 drinkers and a pimp-cum-sometime dealer with his prostitute girlfriend. This guy ended up lying on the floor one night insisting people pass the Bible over him and pray because the Devil was talking in his head. That's when he wasn't mastabating at the window convinced a naked woman across the road was giving him the come-on (this at 5am). I used to wake up in the early hours to hear her begging him not to sell her phone for more white. She'd just brought home £300 and blown the lot, now he wanted her phone as well. It was the absolute pits. I wasn't any better. I was in the worst state I've ever been in drugs-wise, totally unable to function without heroin. On methadone I felt so bad I just wanted to die, it just does not give the antidepressant effect I took heroin for. Nobody in our house was in a position to look down on anybody else. We were all as bad as each other, just in different ways. The guy who lived downstairs went on to win the lottery. I wouldn't believe him if I hadn't met him down the park, clean shaven, sober, expensively dressed and confident the way people who can buy their own house with cash are confident. Of course I doubted his story, but something about his manner and the way he was able to describe exactly what happens when you win (Camelot put you up in a hotel, open a bank account etc) seemed too detailed to be a lie. He wasn't the fantasist type. He was actually a really nice guy with a terrible drink problem. Like me, when he first got housed he used to go out and sleep on the street because he felt he belonged there (I never slept on the street, I did empty buildings. A lot of people use abandoned cars.) Even though I was only homeless properly for about 6 months I found it v difficult to adapt to living in a house again. When you're homeless you feel the streets are yours. In a way it's quite liberating. And also terrifying when people think they have the right to shove into my home shit on the floor and smoke heroin, just because there's no locks. I wish I'd done squatters rights now because that building was beautiful. About the size and shape of a small modern primary school, complete with gym. Sometimes I woke up screaming (which I did a lot on drugs). My voice echoed round and round this massive cavernous room. When it rained the sound effects were amazing.

After I heard that lottery story I've been buying Euromillions tickets like there's no tomorrow. Previously I only bothered when the jackpot went over £50 million. He only won the normal lottery but I could really do with a hundred million. That way I could afford private drug treatment.

EVERYONE: Sorry I haven't been in touch that frequently down this end. As y'all probably know I went crazy not long ago and was too overwhelmed to deal with lots of comments. I was up for writing, but not reading, just like a lot of us much prefer talking to listening! I gave up heroin, tried and tried not to drink too much. Drank far too much. I realized when I totted up the units I was actually exceeeding a full bottle of Scotch a day (except I was drinking white cyder ~ far cheaper). I give details of how much I drink as I'm supposed to be keeping a drink diary, so if my blog seems boringly self-obsessed please bear in mind it IS my "secret diary" you're reading. Not everything I put is meant for you, some of it is for me, so I can look back and see where I've been. Ie in a place I never ever want to go back to.

DOOPS, LADY ANON, JODIE & CO, LEAVE ME A COMMENT PLEASE. DOOPS I COULDN'T TALK PROPERLY ON GABBLY THE OTHER NIGHT I WAS COOKING AT THE SAME TIME AS YOU KNOW. TYPICAL ME, I SPEND MOST OF MY TIME DOING NOTHING, THEN WANT TO DO 5 TINGS AT ONCE HA-HA!

PS have a look at my video links. I fished out the best ones I've got. I'd really like to see Bangcock Hilton again but it's 4 hours and my broadband will get terminated if I watch that much telly online!

Hi gledwood I asked u loads of questions but u never answered any of them. Feel like I got blanked lol
(anon 11 th jan 02 52)

Gledwood said...

I'm really sorry about that I just got confused by comments mentioning South America. I've never deliberately blanked anyone.

For the record if anyone does ask a question or raises a point that I just missed and you still want an answer either repost the question or direct me to the original but please give the date asked or I'll get totally lost looking for it.

Now heroin from South America. I looked into the production figures of Columbian and Mexican gear and the amount supposedly consumed in America, which seems really low unless someone's telling porkie pies. I know Americans use a lot of dilaudid and oxy but that still doesn't explain how a nation with more than 4 times our populaation can use LESS gear!

As far as I know the amount of gear produced in Colombia has dropped over reent years and is only a few tonnes

http://www.icdc.com/~paulwolf/colombia/cocafigs.htm 8 tonnes in 1999

http://bogota.usembassy.gov/testimony3.html 4.3 tonnes in 2001

this is nowhere near enough to satisfy the demand in the UK which was 30-35 tonnes annually!

Burma produced about 35 tonnes in 2009, so Britain would need the entire production of that country to keep ourselves at predrought levels. I'm assuming this tonnage is at import strength. 30 tonnes was my own estimate of 300,000 British addicts using an average 0.5g a day as imported or about 0.8g as bought on the street.

Yes it would be lovely to have proper H4 but its advantage is that it's instantly water-soluble (and snorts painlessly unlike H3) and is not very acidic so it doesn't burn veins. If you watch the "how much Citric?" video she gives the figure of properly cooked B at about ph2.55 which is pretty acid. Then she adds the entire sachet which you don't need to do and it gets ridiculously strong. One reason I insisted on cooking my own was I never trusted my friends not to overdo it on the vit C. I preferred to leave a mush, which meant a lovely huge filter plus certain knowledge I'd not overdone it on the cit.

From what I've heard, neat China White smokes terribly. Sometimes people add caffeine, but they're smoking something not designed for smoking so it has a higher melting temperature meaning more drug is destroyed before it vapourizes.

I'm sure they're aware of the drought here and I'm sure SOME H4 comes in from Colombia, but probably not much. Wouldn't it be cool if the British dealers overcut the Americans on price and got the entire lot for us, plunging New York into drought, ha ha!

I've heard quinnine was a cut used in Burmese China White either bc of its bitter taste (which sounds like complete bullshit) or because junkies had malaria (utter shite) maybe it does something. I've had brown gear that tasted metallic and made my ears ring a bit. A friend of mine who had used in Malta said he didn't like china white because a lot of it was like that: metallic and ringing ears. Quinnine makes the ears ring.

2/3

Active cuts used in gear include methaqualone (Mandrax/Quaaludes) which I heard you can smoke, it melts well. Barbiturates especially phenobarbitone. And benzos, I'm not sure which benzo but I tested my own piss on very goofy gear and came back benzo positive. This stuff cooked up black in a strong hit. Not sure how it would look on foil. It stank of B and had loads of that in it too and the dealer was doing huge £20 bags so I spent several weeks off my tree.

Of inert cuts the most stupid is violin resin as used to make the bow vibrate the strings. I played violin when I was little and this resin is golden brown exactly the colour of good B. Powdrered it would probably be a beigy-blond colour. I dont know how it would smoke but in the works it sticks the plunger against the side meaning you have to push too hard which is NOT what you want when injecting in your foot.

Paracetamol is v popular. Try it and see, it should run on foil. It also cooks up with citric. I was bored one afternoon and experimented with the cooking. If there's a lot and you bang it you can briefly see crystals in the water before they dissolve.

Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine, makes you drowsy it leaves a distinctive gel-looking stuff in the spoon. Don't know how it smokes. I also tried this one, just to see what it looked like and instantly recognized it from a gear batch we'd had a few months before.

Erm... I don't know this for absolute sure but I'm pretty sure sugar is used. This makes a liquid hit annoyingly gloopy and harder to inject into little veins. It would probably burn on the foil leaving black lines.

Caffeine is sometimes added at source to Burmese H3 (they do make it out there supposedly for the local Asian market and some probably gets here, H3 is a natural step on the way to H4 so all China White is B at some stage). Caffeine is supposed to make gear run really well and give a better buzz because you get more gear off the foil than without caffeine.

That is all I know about cuts I'm afraid.

3/3

I have a link about gear in India that says Indian gear is only 40% at production and has a very dark look. It might possibly have other psychoactive opiates in it as I've noticed dark gear tends to be goofier whereas white gear tends give a better IV rush. Mixing the 2 together (in America meaning mexican and colombian) is called an Oreo which I did myself a few years back, not realizing anyone else ever did it. The white gear left me disappintingly clear headed but felt fantastic on IVing; the dark stuff crept up but was very gauchy.

People have given different purities. One guy on bluelight reckons Afghan is 60% at manufacture. Before the drought the average Uk purity was said to be just over 40% with the standard varying between 20 and 60 which makes sense as I'd say the best tended to be about x3 stronger than the worst.

I really don't know whether or not neat gear of relatively low grade makes the streets but there is an old link that claims this is frequently the case. Ie that much British gear (at the time) was totally uncut. The remainder being poppyshit rather than bash.

From what I know, good H3 tends to be up to 75% pure at manufacture. Exceptionally it's 80%. There's another link on my sidebar where Afghans make H4. They can't have been that expert as it was only about 70something percent pure. The Burmese can get it in the 90s. I've never heard of any street gear going past 97% and that would be H4. Having said that, in the process the Afghans used (which is supposed to be different from Burma) the brown base heroin was washed white removing impurities and creating white heroin base which they falsely claimed is "never seen". I've seen it loads of times! Chalky white, runs on foil, usually nice and strong. Cooks up very pale. Needs citric but not as much as Brown.

The India drugs link is here. Interestingly street purity was LOWER than the UK and they used shit like curry powder (according to the authors) it's really long so you have a lot to read through to find whatever you want

Sorry the Afghanistan link probably needs additional clicking to download the file which was quite big with oolour photos. If thats' not the right file, it might be elsewhere in International Drugs info on my sidebar but I can't find it.

I will read that Mexico Drug Lord article you mentioned. I find it slightly odd that there seems to be loads of detailed info on Burma but barely a single photo let alone in depth article on poppy growing in Colombia or for that matter Mexico. I heard a rumour they've started producing H4 in Mexico which had something like treble the opium yield of Colombia in the last few years so maybe something will come from there. Also I heard Tar has turned up in Austria and Southern Germany but that link was in German. I used to think the hash-looking gear we sometimes got, you know with speckles in it might have been tar, but tar really is dark and sticky, it sticks to the finger in this film:

http://gledwoodvideo.blogspot.com/2010/11/black-tar-heroin-dark-end.html

Here's the citric acid vid:

http://gledwoodvideo.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-much-citric.html

Hope this answers everything. I'm no expert I'm just like you I researched from the same sources you would find online. I've always had a pretty good memory for facts and figures re important things like heroin and dealers' numbers. And a shit one for most other things!

Gledwood said...

I didn't mean to write a book here but one thing I forgot about the link to Afghan gear manufacture. The white heroin base was actually stronger than the white heroin hydrochloride H4 end product, which might explain why some of that white rock gear going round a few years ago, which was definitely base heroin not H4, was so very high quality.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for answering me questions Gledwood, and so comprehensively. Now I have a sudden overwhelming desire to do heroin base!! sounds gooood. But dont worry u werent hyping it and I am already a lost cause - I like that u dont advocate the use of gear and are brutally honest bout ur relationship wiv it. btw, sorry to ask if youve stopped using again, but on the BL forum a lot of people are saying theyre geeting really good gear in the london area - what are your experiences over last week or so? do u think theyre kidding 'emselves? cheers bud take it easy

I just saw a post on the alt.drugs.hard usenet group, dated 13/01/2011 titled "Bad Heroin"....

......from someone in Spain saying the gear round his way is all bunk & bash, but supposedly someone in Northern Spain has good gear.

Sounds like its a Europe wide, if not worldwide problem. Just need to hear what the quality is like in the US for final comfirmation.

Anonymous said...

Can't find the link unfortunately, but read a UN report on heroin manufacturing in Afghanistan.

It claimed that H3 purity was around 55-65% heroin, and H4 was around 75%, rarely if ever any higher.
I've often read that the average quality of UK heroin at street level is around 40%, but to be honest, I find that hard to believe.

A couple of years ago a friend got caught selling gear, which everyone at the time thought was great quality stuff. However, after police analysis it turned out to be only just over 20% heroin.
The past decade dealers have got younger and younger and more and more greedy - basically there's none of the 'old skool' ethics goin round anymore. Hence people cutting it without having a clue how to do it right (solidifying gear, frazzling gear etc).

Also, this drought isn't worldwide, it's confined to the countries that are supplied by afghan heroin/golden crescent heroin, i.e. europe, russia and the middle east.

The US is supplied by SA and Mexico, and the golden triangle supplies Australia and it's domestic markets.


There is good gear in london at the moment, about £20 for .3-.35. Doesn't give an intense rush,but does give a heavy nod. Rush is more noticeable if you lessen your methadone dose of course. Intense nodding tho - am stocking up for sure!

Beggar Su the Crippled Avenger said...

i've been having some pretty crap gear recently. i dont even know what i would rate it bcos pre draught it wouldnt even sell, i dont think. The gear iv had before that was about 6/7 outta 10 and in my opinion was better but by how much i cant really tell. that says a lot in its self.

the gear im talking about is very light grey fine powder and to me tastes like paracetamol.

the last two days i forgot to take my meth before i went to score but after i had this crappy gear i didnt feel the need to take the meth so i just went to sleep without it. this was 2 days in a row - missing my 30mls days which normally would be impossible w/out some decent gear.

its the third day now, ive not had any gear and im clucking my nuts off but im trying not take meth to see if the fourth day will get easier.

so if that gear was shit or even 6/10 i think i would've still needed to take the juice but i didnt so i wonder what else could it have contained to reduce my meth withdrawals.

ps i only took .2 a day for those 2 days. I also had the same gear last week but ive not been using everyday.

In West yorkshire again gud gear about that I have not seen in years.A chocolate powder/ coco colour brown afghan,no 3 with black specs in it.I took some speckles aside and melted them on the foil and it smelt of strong Opium/heroin, so that must be a filtration problem during manufacture. I am on 45 mils of meths and if its doing it for me its definately pukka.There is food U just have to look for it.

Hi
Came across your blog last night. So the rest of the UK is going thru it as well, thought we were the only one's up here in the NE of Scotland. I'm between Aberdeen & Dundee & I can say it's the same here & has been for a couple of months now, was managing to score bits here n there for a while but the last 2wks hav been dire! I work. 2nd wk off work now & u know I think I am now getting over my addiction at last, smoker but 4/5 bags a day or a gram if I could get my hands on it, been impossible to score weight for months now!!! So sick of it & think I hav finally beaten it. Fed up throwing good money away on shite!!! This drought might just be the best thing that has happened. So much to say....I will b back. Save your self some cash & stop dont waste it anymore on this shit!! I hav hardly even rattled, bad sweats but hey I can handle that, feeling good & positive. 1st time in a long time :-) nighty night. Believe me I all know where u are at but u can get over this shit

hi gled

from what i've understood, your battle with mental illness is much more difficult and is very distressing.

i also feel that way but my symptoms are not as severe.
I have symptoms of social anxiety,
OCD and ive been diagnosed to
have delusional diorder although i think my paranoid thoughts (not voices) may be due to OCD. Ive not received any psychiatric treatment but my parents are pushing me to see a shrink to try to "CURE"
my addiction (which is minimal in my opinion) but i have always felt i need to address my mental health problems first.

A part of me believes that as long as a person is suffering from a
mental disorder however mild or moderate the symptoms may be, it would be virtually impossible for them to stop using.

knowing this doesnt stop me from trying because all i can do is keep trying even though i dont know
if i would succeed. The discomfort caused by these symptoms naturally
pushes me to seek help and but regardless of how much achieve i feel im going round in a circle.

Anyway, my question is whether u have considered alternative forms
of therapy that encourage healing
the self or healing from the inside.

i think this diary is a good idea for you but you write so much sometimes its difficult to find my way around the site. I couldnt find ur email although i must admit
i havent looked that hard but anyway thats the reason i posted here.

also, im really curious if there's
such a thing as destroying the ego in any form of therapy. I know they
do it in the military. In Buddhism
the cause of suffering is due to
desire so i wonder if u have any thoughts on that and whether we can help ourselves. I have a feeling that the more we try to define something, the more we try to solve a problem by refinement,
naturally we complicate it but
i have a feeling that looking
for the one answer that would solve
our problems may be futile and dangerous. I think it would too much pressure and expectation our selves. Im going off topic so i'll stop here. I dont have any medical
knowledge whatsoever of menatal diorders but i do think a lot and im just trying to understand myself
and others to realise some truth and offer my support.

Im sorry one more thing, did using heroin actually help you deal/manage/cope more than with the meds prescribed by the doc.

Hey Brother, glad I found you this makes interesting reading.
Two things I wanna say: in answer to your question on US heroin consumption being less then our own... i lived in Seattle in 2007 and was using black tar and I had a habit around 2 grams a day. Anyway, when I got back to the UK I visited a friend who is a smoker and I smoked some of her 20bag - only a few lines. Anyway the point is, I fucking felt brand new - the purity of the gear we have over here is off the scale higher than the black tar over there, what I had in the states was real because I was once in detox there and was tested from time to time. So anyway, I'm thinking the difference in consumption might have something to do with purity, but then there is also the political aspect to consider.
About the situation worldwide... I got a mate who used to operate as part of a distribution hub between peshawar and northern europe in a group of islands not in the indian ocean. I got an email from him recently to tell me that even over there, the heroin is incredibly low in purity and some is synthetic. Mixtures of ketamine and benzo's are quite common. People are admitted for treatment, testing clean, and having to do medically supervised detoxes from the coctail because they have dangerous levels of benzo in their system. Shocking situation really, because over there the stuff was so pure smokers had to spot it because it would run straight off the foil or burn your finger if you tried to chase lines!

Anonymous said...

anyone know if you can smoke dihydrocodeine on foil,can't answer a friends question.is it safe?

Anonymous said...

The reason why this whole section has slowed down is simple - it ain't rocket science.

The gear situation in the UK/Europe now, is just as bad as it was months ago when the drought first properly hit, and it ain't gonna get noticeably better for months, until the next harvest is reaped, (provided that too ain't blighted), processed into heroin and sent off for export.
And that's early summer we're talkin.

I'm not sayin there's no good gear about - there is, just very very little of it, and 90% of the time it's waaaaay overpriced.

People have stopped checkin back on this site daily cos they've simply realised that the situation is the same everywhere, and there's fuck all anyone can do about it.

If you find good stuff, then rest assured it ain't gonna be about for long. Stop searchin for gear, or hopin that the next bag will be good even though the 50 before it were utter shite. Wait until other people come to you and tell you shit's got better, and in the meantime, save yourself a fuckload of cash.

Good luck guys, but really, the whole of europe is fucked, and nothings gonna change on any big scale until a big successful harvest comes through, and there are only 2 harvests per year - sept/octoberish and may/juneish.

stock up on juice and save ur money guys and gals. Don't put money into the hands of people sellin paracetamol and xanax crushed up.

peace.

Lots of bash about. Having said that, I scored some fantastic bits the other night in E5.

Then I bought an 1/8 which didn't smoke at all, but when I pinned it it was lovely.

I've got more bits this week, which I've tried and which are ok, and had some nice bits yesterday.

I'm in Norwich, and I'm having little difficulty getting some decent bits.

Gledwood said...

Somebody asked how you navigate this site.

To get to the top go down past that fucking vile flogging shit that is coming OFF, down to a "did you find via a google/other search? do you want to read Gledwood Vol 2 from the top?" if you click there you should get to today, whatever is newest.

you can also just type in

http://gledwood2.blogspot.com

to do the same

you can go backwards by going right to the bottom of the page around the bits that don't change (best drug videos) there's a "newer/older" link you click on to go back approx one week at a time so 6 weeks needs 6 clicks

you can find other stuff by clicking the purple/blue words underneath a post that label it "addiction, heroin, drugs drought," etc etc etc that stuff


sounds like gear is as shit as always then


take care everyone

Gledwood said...

1. OK newer post/older post are on the left and right hand sides just before "heroin shortage news" as you scroll down. "heroin shortage news" is on every single page no matter how new or old

and that fucking picture that did my head in has GONE

2. so it sounds like those people who said its not happening till next (major) harvest in may/whenever were right

i can't believe somehting so minor as a third or even if it was half can push quality down THAT bad

it was my happiness in someone else's control that's what i hated about gear thats why i never want anywhere near that shit again, it took me long enough to get to where i am today, able to forget methadone doses because i don't even think about it. i'm not going back to all that obsession and misery and that feeling like i'm paying £10 for a morning piss, then I'm going to have to pay £10 for lunch and £10 for peace in the evening (and if I have it £10 for the middle of the night).... never again

yeah i know i'm not ok but at least the drs actually listen this time and don't do that sniffy shit you get when they think you're just trying to score off them. you score off a dealer. i thought drs were meant to be able to help some people in some way but there ya go

ok that's just me. i don't know what id do if i were you

i remember feeling so pissed off and offended during/after the drought in spring 2002 that i decided i would never again go through a situation like that. of course i did and it just made scoring that bit more exciting in a way and got me new dealers all that

i'm tired of all that now, wanna do something else, maybe you will one day too

good luck

Anonymous said...

Well said Gledwood! Know exactly what u mean by morning piss etc. I hope I never go back either 9 days without & never felt better! Happy again at last, from almost suicidal a couple of wks ago, never thought I would get here but think I hav. Freedom from that shit, no more chasing, getting ripped off. Can't wait till I get some money back in my pocket. Going to treat myself to a hol, some sunshine.

Take it easy

Fuck me whats happened to everyone? Where's all the comments? Here's one anyway - Bath / Bristol - gradually been getting better then yesterday - very hard rocky Afghan gear, light brown, not bashed AT ALL, normal ish prices 75a T, 130 an eight, and available in weight. Certianly aint the strongest but point is its proper gear the like of which I aint seen since early december, and that was a fluke. Also, for £65 a gram (!), or £15 0.2g, some stronger gear, powdery and small lumps, tastes of deep heat but as I had almost identical stuff long before the drought, know that it aint down to the cut, but how its smuggled, ie with deep heat, and it picks up the odour. But is good tackle tho. So I think somethings def changing, I mean why the fuck would u be able to buy normal gear at normal prices most people would pay double for, if it aint here in weight?

Gledwood, well done and good luck to u mate - if u ever struggle tellin urself that u will 'never use again' then why not say 'I'll allow myselft to use, but only when the country is flooded with H4'!? That way, you'll never use again, but u could kid urself that u might!!

Everyone else-where the fuck are ya? C'mon - I done it, it aint that hard, UPDATE THE STATUS!!!
And can anyone tell me when the next harvest is in Afghan, is it right now in January? Peace all

Hello guys. I am in the Bradford area and have being buying absolutely rank gear for months, I've had one good bag in this time. This means that I don't have a clue what there putting into it.

The other day I injected 2 bags together and then another 2 bags before going to bed and I ended up experiencing the most weird lunatic episode. My partner had to console me, I was drip, ice cold, my legs were violently shaking, not the bones but the leg muscles at the top of my legs, my stomach was hurting as-well as me thinking Im going "insane".
I was saying that I had to go away and I was actually making myself believe that I needed to be admitted into a mental hospital.
This went on from Midnight to 3am. My partner was really, really scared, I was really scared, it was just horrible, I am fine now but at the time it was like I was in torment, Like I was trying to escape something.
I later found out the next day that I had actually injected "speed". This would explain the fast beating of my heart and the ice-cold dripping that I felt, and my hard beating proper fast. (please look at the colour and try a little on foil first to see if it runs).
So the next day I scored off someone else that had sent me a msg saying "got good b, same thing, big bags. call me" so I did.
Two hours after scoring I went upstairs to cook it up. It cooked up fine, looked a nice dark brown in colour (in the liquid) and pulled up into the pin fine. So I found a vain and pushed half in, Then the plunger wouldn't move, I was pushing hard and nothing, pulled it out so see what looked like wall paper paist white bits solidifying, I went mental, he could have killed me. I rung him saying that he is not to text me again and that he will end up killing someone. Now I really do realise that there aint no point in using any-more, and that we are putting to much at risk by filling the bags with anything when its crap anyway, so your not gonna feel it.
I have not used for 2days now, and plan on not using again, not because I don't have the money but because the gear is ram. may as-well as use this drought as an opportunity to get clean after ten years of using.
Im 27 now, you know. Stop the money going over to the east supplying Mafia and whatever else they do with it. I think we should use this as an opportunity even more now as I've heard that only half of users are still using due to this drought.

I think somebody needs to regulate the gear now, that way they could give us half the social benefits, keep crime down, help take prostitutes off the streets and decrease the number of people being introduced to heroin.
The government really do need to asses the situation and they will need to work something out as allot of people will die. And I don't think the answer is methadone.

Keep safe, and remember to test the gear on foil before cooking up. look at the colour as-well.

Matt: that sounds more physical than mental. Or to put it another way there were reports here that Subutex was in gear. What you're talking of sounds a little like a dirty hit, but a dirty hit is more headache and extreme vomiting (with cold limbs). Those were my symptoms. I only ever got it off old filters, never gear, though some people have had it off gear.

Subutex puts you into withdrawal if you're ON methadone or on gear and it's still holding you.

Naloxone is an anti-overdose agent, that can make you start clucking.

Naltrexone does the same but is stronger and lasts 2 days or more. Don't go near it if you have a habit.

What you're describing sounds to me like clucking. The fact you talk about mental hospitals says a lot, because everyone loses it to some degree when clucking full-on Cold Turkey.

As a point of comparison I put this bit in ~ then you can compare how you felt with what a psych ward actually does. As I say it's far from a complete list but you get the gist:~

Mental hospitals would deal with: depression, anxiety, "speeding" but not on speed/coke/anything (mania), paranoia, hearing voices, hallucinations, panic, extreme insomnia (literally not sleeping for days on end) despair those types of things. I could not give a full list but those are most likely for addicts and addicts are most likely to use heroin to self-medicate the same condiitons which makes the issue so complicated I'm totally lost in it having lost it twice in 2 months. And all I did was stop doing gear and take methadone.

I got fucked up royally by the mental health system. Though I was diagnosed with one "mood disorder" (depression) I could have another (bipolar) but nobody knows yet. Despite years of symptoms and 2 breakdowns in 2 months (short but v intense, the 2nd was ultra-intense) nobody knows.

I'm on antipsychotics and sleepers but that's it. I don't despair I don't give up. I feel fine in myself but that was the trouble I felt too good, like I was cracked out and ultra-high not to mention very, very fast) when I hadn't done crack in 6 weeks! So nobody knows what it is, but I'm seeing a shrink.

Anyway Matt I hope some of this is some help..?

You could try googling what happened.

When I went on Subutex I was on 2x20B or 1x£20+about 20mg methadone dr. said "take it when you would have a hit" so I took it the minute i got home went into withdrawal, too fucked to score + broke and in no state to make money. I'd say it was about half as bad as complete cold turkey, I didn't get every symptom (I was puking and sweating heavily, but no jumping legs)... if you got the same stuff in gear that might explain why what you had was withdrawal-like but not exactly the same as full-on withdrawal.

DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE ANY IDEAS? PLEASE.

Anonymous said...

Well fuck me, pardon my English I happen to be from the same area were this person/ppl have experianced these symptoms with this gear. I will get onto that in a minute.I last posted on here around the 7th January,sometime just after it was my post the following days of experiancing the same except I was glad I smoked mine,if not at all glad.I will now no longer buy herion unless its in block form or unless ther's some gud lumps in there, otherwise U can gurantee the fuckers have bashed it.The gear came from another asian from the BFD area and it was the pukka stuff (before) but this time he said to me hummm its a bit lighter this 1 after i'd jst given him the money so I knew strait away it would be bash.Got home put it on the foil and when heated up U could tell that there was a self made mix in it,anyhow never thought out of it, was even drunk at the time when I smoked it but then actually freaked out delusional that I had skin Cancer with a mole on my back(will get bk to this also)anyhow still managed to get some sleep cos by this time it was around 1-2am, then around 4.30 am I woke up sweating, trembling, panicking but also glowing at the same time as though on some E,or stimulant but not feeling too great nor too good,hell I was debating to go wait on the end of the st and wait for an AMBULANCE, however symptoms didn't last and things got better as time whent on so I jst persiveered till the morning but hell I felt shit for around 2-3 days after that.Getting back to the Cancer thing it was pure freeking hallucinations and delusions I was even crying to my mother saying now after all this I have skin cancer to find the next day when I looked in the mirror it was just a normal mole THANK GOD.So due to my experiances I can tell U that these dick heads have simply got an oz of gud gear and bashed it with Subatex wich explains the withdrawls and the glowing will be the bloody smart drugs they sell in tobacconists called M-KAT. I have nothing to prove this and myself am worried (underlining health issues) but am so thank full that I didn't pin this stuff and that it did stop (symptoms) and at the end of my last post I put IF IT DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT DONT TAKE IT.(or something along those lines).I do feel for this person cos I believe its from the same made up batch that they are gonna mix with some of the decent gear thats about over here , there is but not alot, tenner bags .2,or .3 for 15, and these ppl know who the ripp off merchants are who are bashing the stuff and they are gonna take over the custom and the ones selling the bash well will loose their trade simple as, jst a matter off time.So to the person who took this stuff,I think it will be alright if U are getting better as time goes on but, dont buy anything that isn't solid,I'm a smoker and can see the impurites in the beetle when on the foil, so I can tell bash plus 15 yrs of this addiction so that stuff I avoid,the gud stuff (pure in block) it is here but its only the smaller dealers that have it which says it all,??? Hell I tested a bag and had to throw .3 down the loo cos it was pure bash ,this time I didn't want to RISK it so best of luck all, be safe and take care.

Well thanks for that gledwood and the guy that wrote after him.
Just so you know for yourself as you may live in same area, it was saj 902 that id rung on the last night that it conjealed, and the night before it was saj2000 when I had that lunatic eppisode.
Keep the good work up Gleds and I think you could easyly set an early warning system up somewhere. I know that the Bridge Project has tryed but they cannot publish dealer names so I think they had to put it on the back burner for now, maby you could set one up! Then we would know whats safe and what aint.

Take care and I will be cheching back in a few days.

I remembered something!

Does anybody know how long it takes for heroin and crack to leave a mouth swab?
My friend has a child and she is a good mother but her drug worker is trying to get things on her and she can do without it coming back positive. I know that there aint mush heroin in the brown so she will probably be fine with that its just the crack test.
Can anybody help??

~~I never bought subutex gear i was put on it by a dr. and was clucking because i didn't know how long to wait. asking a junkie to go sick is like asking for a toe instead of a urine sample "oh you won't miss it" fucking bullshit

~~anyway MATT the people who ought to be regulating gear are the GOVT and they can do that in the form of injectable and smokeable diamorphine on script. They give it out to a v select few what's so special about them? I satisfy entry criteria to diamorph treatment ~ easily. ie I was on methadone for years and using every single day I could on top. EVERY day I could. Never ever did days off gear except when I ran out of money, or a couple of times kept £20 in the Post Office over bank holiday weekends.

~~Yeah it does sound like subutex in gear. Feeling you're going crazy like I say is v much part of clucking and it's why clucking is so much uglier than flu which some idiotic dr who deserves striking off for only looking at physical signs which are considerably more severe than flu. And you don't have immense agitation with flu. Or near-total insomnia etc etc.

~~Re mental hospitals they're crap with drug addiction. Go if you feel suicidal. Take someone else if they genuinely cannot cope even with little things. This stuff they deal with. They know hardly anything about drugs and will want to put you in the Addiction box unless you have a diagnosis from before...

... just be careful folks. A hospital ain't a nice place to be if you're clucking!

~~Shane in France wrote a post about the drought he recalls in London from the end of 2001/early 2002 it sums up v well the attitude of the wankers in drug clinics who as we all know don't give a shit for us, they're only into tick-boxing their way to a better salary and promotion

http://memoiresofaheroinhead.blogspot.com/2011/01/hope-for-hopeless.html

~~o yeah re heroin in block form:

we had stuff that was obviously jumped up and down on but still strong enough to be OK, just before the drought ie in November I spose

you could see just by looking at it that they'd taken B, made it damp, mixed other shit in, dried it on a v low oven temp or just by a radiator

it had the look of sand that had gone wet and dried... i dunno how to explain, you could just see what had happened my mates spotted it and said look! and i did and they were right

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did anyone else notice this one before the drought ~ batches of gear that were strong in some parts, weak in others. So I thought 2 of my dealers had it in for me. Then I got a bag with 2 lumps in. One cooked up dark and was shit hot. The 2nd cooked up sallow and was shyte. One £20 bag! 2 totally different lumps. That taught me something. And they were exactly the same colour. I trust that dealer as well as I trust anyone I don't think he would have done that deliberately. Usually they crush together when doing that trick...

... anyhow did anyone else find that? Really unreliable quality from same batches. It happened to me from 2 or 3 different sources so I knew it must have been widespread. Done by idiots who cannot even apply common sense to mixing 2 powders!

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_far_back_does_the_mouth_swab_drug_test_detect_cocaine


3-5 days is the standard maximum time

i did crack on a friday and was tested on monday it came up in a piss test

you know btw they cannot distinguish crack and snorty coke... just something to bear in mind, being as snorty coke doesn't sound as "bad"

i hope your friend is ok

Hi its the BFD lad again, yeah Bridge project in BD1 is very helpfull, but I think legally they just aren't allowed to put who's safe and who isn't. It would be nice if they could do something like that,! but I think their hands are tied.Getting back to gear being in solid lump form, I know it can be cut and re-pressed with anything,???(I'm now 32 first started H,when 15 yrs old)_ ,and it does happen,I know, but off the same person who has now a reputation for having the ok cleaner better stuff, in purer block form I just will not risk it,hell I remember the days when U put a rock on the foil and it still ran in block form now it all melts before it runs,???? in fact I know 2-3 ppl who are cosher and say another 5 that aren't.Hell I got .3 given to me for doing him a favor and I'm glad I didn't pay 15 for it cos,when cooked up,!it turned yellow orange and smelt off piss,so after my Subatex experiance ?M-Kat epersode or whatever it was,?? I slung it down da bog no way worth the risk,I hate Subatex its something in it that doesn't agree with me was on a script for 3 yrs down to 9 stone nah my teeth crumbling no thanks, as soon as swapped back on to Methadone I felt warm and better can not explaine it.However I think Subatex is still a god send for a short detox getting off program but no way for a long term stabalisation program it seemed to rott me up.It would be pointless for me to mention my area in BFD cos thers still alot of ppl about with crap and I can not afford to risk anything, I hope things get better for U but if U are around the Bridge project (users service in bfd)am sure thers some ppl who can still point U in the ok direction, take care everyone be aware be safe.

The last Government didn't even listen to it's own medical / scientific advisors on the subject of drug legalisation / treatment, I've a feeling that this new " puppet show, punch & judy style " Government wont either, in fact they're probably more likely to do the opposite of what advice they are given by any advisors say. Even though the lib/dems for a short time did preach drug - reform laws ( pre-election ). They're just a shower of shit you couldn't throw a handfull of rice at the cabinet & hit one half decent politician. Forget them & live your life by your own moral beleifs, chances are that they are of higher moral fibre than any of those pricks. Play


Its from the daytime tv programme 'This Morning'

This Morning Former defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth has called for the Government to consider legalising drugs, saying prohibition has failed to protect the public. “The war on drugs has been ‘nothing short of a disaster’ and it is time to study other options, including decriminalising possession of drugs and legally regulating their production and supply”. What do you think? Post your comments below and they may be used on air. (Copied and pasted)

I added my comment on there :PunkyTina Brophy: As there is a heroin drought at the moment,the government dont need to do much other than keep it that way... Maybe make it easier for the addicts without scripts to get scripted and also use harm reduction policy as its intended and not just throw Oral methadone at ALL addicts! I do however think those already addicted would be better off prescribed Heroin than pharmaceutical shit.. Maybe take over the supply and use it for the addicts that way it takes the powder power away from dealers and any crime associated with it
the game...just don't get caught when you break THEIR rules


Prohabition of any substance has always failed throughout history, whether it was prohabition of alcohol in U.S.A, or more recentley prohabition of narcotics in the world today ( which is mostly down to pressure on other countries from the U.S.A ) During a trip to Morroco once one of the local policemen told me that he reckoned that up to 90% of male Moroccans smoked hash & that it was only due to political pressure from the U.S.A that they had to make laws ( albeit ones that were rarely adhered to ) to ban the sale of it. This was all discussed as I was waiting for his brother to come back with the smokes that I had just purchased. A truly bizarre situation!
If Governments really want to practice what they preach, ie. " Harm Reduction " then the only way forward is to legalise certain substances, that way they can control the quality & distribution of them. Putting your unsrupulous criminal dealers out of the picture completely. Who's going to go & buy some shit of the street when you can get it prescribed to you by a health proffessional. The revenue that Governments could make from such a system ( considering the drug trade is one of the top 5 econimies in the world ) could easily fund such a system of distribution, even if they did want me to pay a liitle extra for my prescription, I'd far rather pay that & get my drug of choice. As far as heroin goes I know from spreaking to other people, from my own experience & by reading posts on this forum that a lot of opiate users would like to smoke opium & see if they could stabilise themselves on that.
Anything is better than the draconian laws that we have to put up with just now & SO obviously do not work, it's worth a try the Government(s) can't make the situation any worse than it is at present.

What Do You Think??

All 29 users on injecteabl presciriptions in Cambridge were told late April that their prescriptions were to be 'individually reviewed'; now they are all in the process of being switched, individually, to methadone linctus.
Cambridge has no history of cavalier prescribing. All those concerned were given their prescriptions only after all else had failed. The group includes eight on diamorphine maintenance; all but one of these are in their late fifties and sixties and have had their prescriptions for an average of 17 years. Between them they accumulated 45 criminal convictions for drug-related crime; since they've been on diamorphine, none. Some have now gone decades without recourse to the black market; all live settled existences that, they believe, would not have been possible without their prescriptions, nor if their precriptions are removed. Unsurprisingly, they share a costant sense of dread. The statistics are not avialable for the 21 users on methadone ampoules but, broadly, their experiences appear to tell a similar story.
The change, those affected were told, was ' on cost gorunds '. Users note wrly that extra counsellors are being employed to help them ' structure their days' and similar gobbledegook innapropriate and insulting to grandparents approaching pension age. They also comment on the costs of repeated and extensive outsourced 'drug testing', increased monitoring, ill-attended classes and beaucratic excesses since Addaction took over as dsp for Cambridgeshire two years ago. Those on diamorphine also query why diamorphine linctus is not on offer as an alternative for those who experienced unhappy reactions to methadone.
They are inclined to think a truer motive may be that their histories manifestly contradict the ' recovery equals abstinence' and ' one model fits all' approach to drug treatment. " It seems that if you're not a tabloid gutter junkie they're going to make you into one," said one user bitterly.
Whatever the rights and wrongs of injectable or maintenance prescription for new users, it is an entirely different proposition for those already with a long history of succesful maintenance. There is, for example, no recorded instance of anybody successfully conquering a diamorphine addicion aged over 55; for the sp to expect eight so to do indicates either an ingenuous or callously indifferent attitude to the fates of these individuals

Anonymous said...

Their protests that physical, mental and spiritual realities are simply being ignored are met with a glib' you'll thank us when you're on linctus', It beggars belief but it's happening now in Cambridge; recoveries of decades duration are already beginning to unravel as users grapple with the stress and disruption of 10% monthly cuts. But, hey what's the lives of a few ageing addicts when you've a masterplan?
Addaction took over the contract here in 2009. Is there any field other than that of drug treatment where an organisation can grow so big without challenge or investigation? Since they arrived here, nodified addict numbers are down-no new scripts save for supervised syrup for the persistent&thickskinned-while, in the real world, dealers offer a free 'bag' if the customer waits more than 20 mins for delivery and a red light area has sprung up to accomodate poor women addicts. It seems the only people to benefit since Addaction's arrival here have been unemployed social workers and corporate middle managers, black market dealers and, possibly, those wanting to come off and needing an instiutional support structure. In time, the effects of what is arguably a simplistic,cosmetic approach to the complex problem of addiction will become apparent to the wider population; hopefully, it will then be discredited.(cold comfort for the 29) But, as history teaches, people will swallow what they're told where ' drugs' are concerned.
So tell themthe truth-now, before they swallow the Maddaxtion fantasy and addicts everywhere swallow methadone syrup... in sleepy Canbridge, lives long mended by a judicious application of a programme of injectable mainenance are presently being ripped apart, and decent human beings treated like experimental laborary animals. Those of you who've done a kick know how long it took to regain anything like your natural energy and feel on top of things again; now, iimagine coming off in your sixties from a 20 year habit and figure when you'd be right again. Enuf said?i
Let me be clear. Longterm injectable maintenance is not for everyone; , just that very few who find it impossible to stop their using behaviour,whatever the cost, and on whom it produces a marked, and defineable improvement. People like the Cambridge 29, in fact. Are they to be condemnded to an uncertain futurre. wth icriminilisation and disnintegration among the likelier outcomes, in order to "prove" that recovery means abstinence? Unless somebody speaks out, and speaks out soon, it seems quite probable. The 29 need your help and support and now. Any ideas out there?

With reference to the cambridge 29,this makes me think of a similiar scheme that was being run by the chelsea and westminster hospital in fulham early 2000 onwards.Two of my closest friends were on this injectable diamorphine scheme.They both died within weeks of each other cos of hep c complications,so i am cut off from that scene and i don't know if they are too being affected by the "cuts".Some of the people there were publishing a magazine called black poppy that was on the junkies side,maybe its still going?I just hope that someone helps these people,it would have meant an even earlier death for my mates if they had been forced off their scripts into street use.Whats happening in england is scandalous and includes definite human rights violations but what to do?Very scary times to be poor and a member of a minority...

Gledwood said...

I used to read Black Poppy. I rang them and said I was a using addict and got it delivered to my mate's house (I was all over the place housing-wise).

The woman who runs it, Erin, though I don't know her personally I know she's on injectable diamorph 3x100mg a day which would have been between a £10 and a £20 bag in pre-drought purity (40% supposed average, do the maths yourself!) ~ that's per 100mg amp. She campaigns for better treatment of addicts.

By injectable scripts you do mean diamorph? Not methadone? I didn't google as can do without being wound up yet again over an issue that winds the living shit out of me every time it crosses my head.

That crap-arse "review" sounds typical of the treatment given addicts. That's why I wanted off gear. Being treated like shit when I was in an ever worsening mental state that crossed into Desperation several times.

On the one hand I'm being told I'm "self medicating" which sounds all lovely and lar lar lar but they gave me fuck all of their own meds, apart from the Mean Green.

I cannot take antidepressants. They hype me up, then I crash into worse depression. Not what those pills are meant to do.

Now I'm on different meds and finally getting treatment that feels like proper medical treatment. But I'm off street shit.

I suppose I'm putting this as a shout out to anyone else who feels they need medical help but is not being listened to. If you're on a script and can sort out not using on top, try that. You might find it works a magical difference Staff Attitude-Wise. (We live in hope!)

Take care everyone :-)

hello! Im in Liverpool. Bought B today that was actually decent. Pre drought 5/10 (maybe less, just tollerance is so low now). Anyway, it got my eyes pinned and Im itching like mad. Not really gouchy but feel nice and stoned, definite heroin-no orangey stuff. Got another bag off different source (this was 310 instead of 315, for 0.2g) and it was complete crap-0/10-just orange, no heroin AT ALL. So there is gear in Liverpool, but you gotta be very specific who you buy off

Just to let you know that im still cheching on the situation by looking at your blog, althought it may seem a little pointless at times im here to tell you that it most definatly is not seen by your dedication that you put in everyday and youy will reap the rewards some day.

take care mate and ill see you sometime. Hopefully we could hav4e a chat on the pfhone sometime.

Gledwood and Everyone else.

I am arranging to see my local MP (Philip Davis). Regarding methadone and the effects of this drought.
I am wanting people to tell and explain the pro's of being prescribes legal heroin.

I know that there are currently 432 clients that are prescribed legal gear in this country (most in Brighton area).
If you are one of these people yourself then please - How has being prescribed Real Legal Pharisaical Heroin changed your life?
What can be done to help others? What are the pro's?
How many belive Methadone is not the answer and why?
If you know that we need real heroin from our goverment, either for mental helth, ease of mind or just because you cant get off it then please, lets unite and see our MP's.

I haven't being buying the crap that they have being selling recently as gear, for 7 days now -) I feel great without it.
I am gonna fight for the poor sods that are still having to buy this shit.

I just need some stories to back me up when I have a chat with the local MP's.

I know that they will probably not be able to back the idea, but if we unite together we just may get somewhere.
At the moment there is a drought on, ma by our very own government did blight the crop and we are needed to speak up and let our voices be heard, we need good, safe and clean gear, not the crap there selling that is putting our lives at risk.

If you are reading this and have something to say then please say.
I will defiantly make him see this blog so please share your experiences and why you think things need to change and why do you think it is the right time for drug re-form??

Ill keep you all posted, I think it will be Wednesday. I will keep everyone posted but I cant do this without people's help and opinions.

Would be appreciated.

MG Shipley.

Got a bag yesterday. €40 (Ireland). I shot it up in two digs and got proper stoned. My eyes were pinned for hours and I got an itch I haven't felt since the end of October. Was decent stuff that's for sure. But €20 a shot is ridiculous. There's stuff here alright. Just pricey. Stay safe and stay away from dirt.

New issue of Black Poppy out now. Available to order on line from exchangesupplies.org.uk. Not sure how to get free copies though currently. It cost £3.50 though. Have a look on BP website for more info.

strange 'gear' in newport,guy reckons he's getting some pink looking stuff through soon.anybody had that or heard of it?.anyone got any info on bristol please?.all the best everyone

Please go see your local MP's. I have been sending e-mail's to mine for the diamorphin prescription. We need clean drugs. I feel if you lazy people get off your backsides we could get the goverment to listen, we can help to stop the next generation getting adicted.


PLEASE go see your local MP. I have being in conversation with mine and it can be done, just they need more of us to come forward.

MP- Philip Davis - Conserative- Shipley

Gledwood said...

OK I'm going to write a pretty detailed letter to my MP, to the Minister of Health and whoever is in charge of Drug Policy

all 3 need to hear the truth.

At least as someone who's not using gear now but who did for quite a long time they should listen.

I'm going to try and keep it low key. Going OTT is only going to put them off and make me sound like a junkie with a chip on my shoulder. It's not for me I'll be writing, but for everyone else. I think that might actually help my case.

Gledwood said...

You can get free subscriptions to Black poppy by just ringing up saying you're actively addicted and they'll deliver to whatever address you give. I had to give a friend's house. If you really haven't got a safe place to stay and are on methadone, they might deliver via your worker.

They need good articles and pay something like a tenner.

You can tell your life story, you can tell any good or bad or weird experience, you can give your views on methadone prescription or diamorphine prescription ~ anything to do with drugs they're interested in. You can also do in memoriam pieces in honour of lost friends.

They probably will tidy up and edit what you say, most articles are somewhere between a few hundred words and 2000 words. 2000 words would be about 6 or 7 pages double spaced in 10 point courier.

Come on people write for Black Poppy; it's a magazine for drug users, addicts and reformed addicts. So give your point of view!

mattyorks said...

Well done glads. Just what I needed to hear.

I promise you that im not a fuck abour and I my self have had to stop coz of this drought but it has made me feel absolutely great.

Please promise that you will see your MP and even if your MP cannot deal with it (or just can be arsed) Then who do we go to next?? I dont know who we see next, but if he dontr want to listen then ill be asking who is higher than him! (promise)

I left a comment on the 6th saying I got a bag for €40. I got another today for €30 quid. I had thrown away my works after taking my last bag, as I was afraid of my girlfriend finding needles and me supposed to be clean. I'm just after smoking the bag and I'm pleased to report the gear is A-OK. Just like any normal gear I took before the drought. I know of a few people still selling muck, but if you look hard enough out there, gear of an acceptable quality can be found. I hope any of you still looking can find something nice. Just stay safe and ride it out. Things seem to be picking up my end here in midland Ireland. Sorry for rabbiting on, but there you go!

Stay safe,
Dave.

Okay. Yesterday I got am E-mail off my MP stating that he will be talking to the"Goverment Minister" in reagrds to giving problamatic Heroin users Diamorphine, but only I didnt see the Email untill today, So I took to the phone and spoke with his wife that confirmed that she was just typing up a case to back our plight. She said he will be speaking to the Goverment Minister sometime this week. But she did tell me that if this is going to happen that we need to stick with it and get more people getting in contact with Your local MP's, even MEP'S.

Have anybody else explained why they think Diamorphin could be used for Heroin user's? And what the pro's of doing it would be?

Ill defo stay on with this one just to try stop the next generation getting addicted, I think we owe it to them.

Hi, Great idea regaurding writing to MP's etc.Althougth this does seem like a long term strategy. Most lookin for a quicker fix to their woes,pun intended. Sure plenty agree with whats being said re current scripting practices. Maybe a downloadable letter for people to forward to their MP's. Make it as easy as possible. Just an idea. Drought just highlights how shite our system is.

THIS IS THE COPY THAT I DID.

PLEASE AMEND WHERE NEEDED FOR YOUR USE AND IF YOU FEEL THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MISSING THEN PLEASE DO PUT YOUR FEELINGS IN.

Dear MP.
As you may no we are at the moment experiencing Afghanistan poppy drop has being blighted by a bacterial fungus with has resulted in the dealers selling crap because there is not heroin until the next crop farmed in Afghanistan.

Now because Heroin is a major problem in our country and that the money that is used to buy the drug is often used to fund serious crime and the majority of the money is being shipped over to the east.

Why don't we use this to our advantage and give the heroin users diamorphin which there are 243 people in the UK at the moment that are actually prescribed this, that would help all sorts of people and stop the money being passed on to fund serious crime.

I believe that this is the right time for change, I'm changing in as well, I've not used that crap for over two weeks that they are selling because I know that it is just "bash", I feel that if I don't say anything then I am not helping stop young kids getting hooked. So now is time for change

There needs to be change with this, and for the country this is the best time for change while the poppy crop is down, because when the next clean crop is farmed I believe that the next generation of kids will be getting hooked, Dont you believe that it would be best to give the addicts Diamorphine form the chemist to the addicts? By doing this you are stopping users needing to call dealers, which stops the crime and people like me can actually go out to work instead of being in benefits, prostitutes out in the streets and im sure that the parents of the three working girls would agree (I knew all three).
It really is time we tackled this Issue, I know its a Gray area, but it can work, only with your backing.

I can get other peoples thoughts on the matter if you like, maby doctors, hostel workers, vice police, anything to stop the next generation getting a habit on that and the Afghanistan people funding crime illegally.

The doctors all ready prescribe this to over 200 people in the UK at the moment (most in Brighton).
I would be more than happy to talk with you at length if you don't understand anything that I can maby explain.

Thanks for your time and please dont hesitate to contact me.

Regards

YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS WILL NEED TO BE ON THE LETTER AS THEY WILL NEED ADDRESS FOR AREA SERVED PURPOSES.

I spoke with my MP's wife and she herself is comprising other letters and what she said is more people NEED to contact there MP for it to be able to be PUSHED threw.

yeah,i'm in west london too,not much about just 5/10 stuff.Something decent gets thru once in a blue moon.I am beginning to wonder what gear feels like,its been so long....i can't just stop using,i did a coupla years ago and had such severe anxiety it was a nitemare. so methadone holds me and bloats me and i hate it.

Gledwood said...

Anxiety: Doctors are bitches and bastards there's a really good chemical remedy for anxiety called Valium 10s, if you can be strict with yourself take them on a reducing basis over a month or two but you'll have to use the same willpower you put into stopping gear else you know what it's like the habit just jumps ship to the new substance.

Deep breathing and shit like yoga helps with anxiety even shit like long hot baths definitely work, I speak as someone who had it for years (with depression) problem was I felt so depressed after an hour in the bath... but not anxious so hey.

I only get anxiety now when a specific thing is stressing me it's not free-floating like it used to be, ie there all the fucking time. I think what made it go away was when i told myself and got it into my thick skull that worrying about shit is just a big waste of time and energy and you worry less by knowing no irrelevant details eg if you're late and travelling dont check the time it wont get you there any faster... i could go on all day you have my full sympathy, severe anxiety is the fucking pits, worse than depression in a lot of ways good luck

i felt exactly the same when i came off gear cold turkey years and years ago, i basically used to stop feeling shit, it held me 2 days per tiny hit (no anxiety i mean, i had no physical habit at all now)... i couldn't get valiums, i mean i needed 40 or more blues not 2 or 3 and scoring gear was 10 times easier you really need contacts to get a constant supply of benzos which i just didn't have back then

i hope this helps

ACE 21: it wouldn't surprise me at all if the harvest goes up big time

hey you must have heard the news that the price on a key only doubled from 20k to 40k so why all the shit? fair dos it was probably difficult to get hold of for a month or so

they've fucked up their business more than they thought they would, not realizing how many punters actually get scripted methadone, have had habits for years and used that drought the way i did to get the fuck away from something i was bored of anyhow: i know 3 people off the top of my head who just gave up and 1 is definitely like me, not using gear at all. if he knew someone who had good b he'd tell me and he can't tell me anything, also he's not a bullshitter like a lot of people "i'm so clean i don't use do you know anyone with decent white?" type person

i knew there was a fungal blight they cooked up in a lab that destroys supposedly coca bush, opium poppy and cannabis plant. considering coca is a pretty sturdy bush, poppy is a flower, we all know what weed looks like they're 3 totally different things that shit is going to seriously fuck up agriculture and that's exactly what they're saying is happening so it wouldn't surprise me at all if they'd been idiotic enough to use it

if the world poppy situation just died we'd have crooks cooking up synthetic opiates instead which are potentially incredibly dangerous that's where that "china white is fentanyl" bullshit you still hear online comes from. china white is just h4 from burma, pure white like talc, fentanyl will look the same. in the mid 80s some idiot tried to cook up a batch of fentanyl-related shit that was a molecule or two out hence legal, fucked it up and gave loads of people instant parkinsons (this is the source of that bullshit that E gives you parkinsons i used to hear in the early 90s, it was a designer drug, but a designer opioid, not an e type drug)

totally forgot where i was going with this

hey am i the only person to have noticed gear went up in price about 2 or 3 years ago definitely and the papers said so too, they said it used to be 13k a kilo uptil the late summer 2008 drought, then 20k a kilo, now 40 or 50k which is serious pisstaking i mean that's £50 a gram even cutting it 50% will give 40% purity on decent brown which is what it supposedly used to average out as... ie £25 on a street G as bought wholesale ie ridiculous prices, the situation is totally fucked up now

i'm not going near piss weak gear that's like taking a steak dinner and spitting on it and dolloping dogshit on the side. gear is food of the gods and not to be fucked about with!

Hi All.
First I would like to say thank you to Gledwood for enabling this long-running discussion and to all those who add comments. This site, along with a couple of others, has really helped me keep my sanity over the last 4 months.
Up here in Edinburgh the situ is still very bad. The main rubbish is the stuff that crystallizes in the barrel - possible to use if double filtered but still very weak. On the whole this is coloured the usual golden colour but in some cases sneaks have added a colouring agent that makes it very dark - almost black - in order to disguise the crystallisation.
There was a very small bit of not bad stuff about at the end of last week but the snides are using it to con people.
The guy that I considered my oldest friend conned me with it last week. He sold me a bag - it was nothing special but at least it would come out of the barrel the same way it went in. The next day I called him and he said that it was the same stuff so I bought two (by the way, up here you pay £20 for .25g) and he had lied through his teeth to me. Same old shite.
Over the last few months I have been slowly deleting numbers from my phone as they con me or rip me off. I now have just one business phone number left! It doesn't say much for the honesty of us Trainspotting folks.
Kind regards,
D.

Same stuff as been getting for 3 weeks; it's light brown/tan, lumpy/rocky, and smells opiumy, as it should. At first I was over the moon as, compared to the bash, this shits great. I thought it was proper afghan, un-stamped on gear, albeit a little weak...5-6/10 on the PRE DROUGHT scale. But having been smokin it for a while Im a lot less convinced now. It runs very light for gear, and darkens as u go on, and it doesnt taste of all that much, and u dont get that much smoke off it. However, it defo has a reasonable amount of H in it (compared to the 0-5% purity bash), and it held me after stoppin me green for a few days. But it aint proper. At first I thought Afghan gear, just a weak batch, now Im thinking gear thats been cut, and re pressed to blocks. But Ill still smoke it as its usual prices and available in weight - that makes me suspicious too. Altogether better, but very slowly. I soooooooo want some nice gear, I really have forgotten what its like, and convinced myself that my meth is blocking the H I use on top, even tho I know this isnt true for me personally, I used to always nod off regular pre drought gear, even on 80ml green. Soz 4 long post, I wanna know if anyone else has had this stuff? Peace off to the chemist for me liquid handcuffs

the drought is ravaging, no signs of it easing, i dont think anyone knows what the future for heroin is, as for drug treatment, this tory /liberal dems government are fucking cutting the spending for the NHS services for drug treatment, ie. {bringing ALL the services GP etc together in one place so as to save money}, what of the addicts that are dual diagnosis that suffer depression from long term addiction problems? i give up trying to continue to chase{at least until i know for sure the situation improves}, as for methadone ive tried spilt dosing 95mls, my miss split doses her 80mls, but still its HARD, VERY HARD, especially when one is used to using on a daily basis, its taking its toll and i cant see Heroin coming back as it was before this drought hit in november, there are dealers that are selling bunk, it below sub-standard and its impossible to EVEN try and survive with outragous prices and all, take care ppl and dont bother trying to continue, its hopeless.

anon Bristol-I know what you mean,I been thinking the same that my methadone was blocking the nice effects of gear,i take 40 mls a day but split it into 2 20 ml doses,Surely i should feel something,like a slight buzz and that super hero " i got enough energy to clean the house and not break a sweat" feeling......I am in london.But i am out of touch cos i can't be out there chasing dealers and bags.

So sorry H4u. And by the way I think your talking a load of shite about smuggling, YOU defo wouldnt be using an open chat forum to communicate to fellow smugglers would you. I wouldnt be supprised if the police dont knock on your door and search you out as they are trying to stop drugs getting in and your arranging "pick up's meets and Drop off's"> I think your mad if you think the police dont scower chat forum's on a daily basis, so yeah id say that I think they will be on your back if you do carry on talking on a forum about smuggling drugs into the country and which route your taking. MAD.

Who's talking about drug smuggling? No drug importer is going to reveal their modus operandi here are they?

We all know how it's done, just watch Undercover Customs, specially the one about the cocaine boat where they had to tear the hull apart and endless bails of Colombia's finest appeared. Every crew member seemed to have their own stash.

That crack that is called Pink is supposed to be that colour because it's brought in in red soda pop. Don't know if that's true, but it's what I heard.

Right I did do gear x2 in the past week. The first deal was 2 tiddly things for £15. I did both at once IV and they blew the living shit out of me, but bear in mind my tolerance has fallen. I haven't touched the shit in weeks. The other stuff was a £20 bag that he did for £15 and it had that crystallizing shit in it. I had to let the 2nd hit cool in the spoon (and crystallize there) then draw it up cold. There's another method of getting past the crystals but that's more dangerous bc you're putting them in your body. Anyway they both worked and felt OK but I just can't be bothered paying for something that's shit even when it knocks the shit out of me I'm never high enough it's crap I don't do crack because it's hardly ever properly washed (or full of bash) ~ nothing like the shit they used to sell years ago that made my ears whoosh. I cannot be bothered with any of it any more. I only use gear when I feel so miserable I don't know what else to do. Far as I'm concerned that's the only use it has. I'm on methadone. Methadone holds me now but it does nothing to stop my mood going like a rollercoaster, which gear used to "solve"... until even gear wouldn't stop it properly. So I'm in a complete fucking mess. I hope y'all are doing better than that, whether you're on gear or no gear.

I think those idiots at the top end fucked up their business more than they know because a lot of old timers just cannot be bothered any more with scoring. Some switched to Special Brew, others just stopped. All are on scripts and have been for years. I know someone on 150mls methadone who uses once a month or so and he says it's shit compared to last year, apart from one lot he got from out of town that was going at £60 a gram.

Anyone on a script look around the methadone clinic. Nearly everyone is in their 30s and 40s if not older. Youngsters don't do gear any more. If those dealers want to impress anyone they'll have to try a hell of a lot harder. And they won't recruit new customers selling weak shit.

Who knows what will happen in the future. Afghanistan has only been the major gear producer since some time in the mid/late 90s. Before that, Burma made shit loads. Maybe the situation will change. Colombia makes gear but according to Interpol/etc only a few tonnes H4 a year, enough to supply New York and surrounding towns, but nowhere else.

That's all I have to say, be safe ;-)

Totally pissed off with never ending drought - been using for nearly 15 years, never known a drought last so long!! Have loads of contacts (Manchester) but costing me a fortune 'testing' the shit that's about. Got the best i've had for a while today - although gear tolerance so low, still couldn't compare it to pre drought stuff - maybe 5/10?
I've got my determined head on - fed up with throwing money away, spent all my months wages in a week!!

ANON: RE CAMBRIDGESHIRE

I was told late last year by somebody on injectible diamorphine in cambridge that these were being withdrawn. he is in his late 30s, maybe early 40s at the max, and i know he had a bad criminal past before going relatively straight. however, its worth noting that he was scoring heroin and crack at this den, where i met him and he told me about this.

i live in cambridge, and at 17 was sent to a local methadone clinic which was later taken over by addaction who im with now. i was the youngest person by ten years and suprise suprise i hadnt touched a needle till then, sorry, i wouldnt put a young smoker on heroin for a couple of months with a bunch of hardened iv users. they watched me go from desperate, to desperatER and still only could have methadone, couldn't i. it makes me sick you have to hit fucking rock bottom, get a criminal record the 10miles long before you are deemed ADDICTED enough to be given what your risking and fucking up your life for. grrrrrr
i work with a prominest ex cop who campaigns to legalise drugs. drop me a line, i want to write to teh paper about this.

what is cambridge like for gear now? i passed to users bitching about a dealer leaving them waiting and clucking... so must be some. but how good? thats the question

Just a short note to say my MAN from brum has just got something for the first time since 7-11-10 and it's the 2nd best stuff i have had since the drought started (the best i had was a silly price anyway) He was right when he said to me "I WILL NOT SELL YOU BOLLOCKS" And when i get something decent i'll bell you (a long time as past since that conversation) and he did. I also highly rate it as well as a few others. Not bad stuff for the situation we are all in at the moment. by the way i am aged 43 and no MUG. You do the maths.

Just a quickiw with an update from Chesterfield.Things have been pretty poor to be honest up until last week,the ok stuff pre christmas and early Jan disappeared and its been the TCP tastin stuff which cooks up inky,gives u a buzz but not an opiate rush as such then last week got a call from one of the lads I aint spoken to for a while sayin things were finally back!! Didnt get my hopes up to much but he was right,it knocked my socks off and I have to admit although I had decent round christmas this was the first truly decent since October,got itches and everythin and also the next day was gouchin still at work,now ive not had that for years wghich tells me 2 things,1.Its really strong and 2.My tolerance was that low even though I thought I was still usin most days that the gear cant have had anything more than about 2 to 3 percent opiate in it,thousands of pounds over 4 months for fuck all is the conclusion ive come to!! Anyway,this had a real knock on effect and the rest of the old dealers are poppin back up one by one all with something half decent pre drought to very decent!! I think the bash days round here are over for now,just gotta hope it stays that way. Bit of a bastard though as Id been managin on my green for 3/4 days at a time sometimes and my key worker has never had so many negatives off me!!! Stay safe y'aall. By the way if you have I-Tunes go to podcasts and download the Hooked podcasts for free,fantastic info from 2 drug workers with a sense of humour and us addicts well being at heart!!

Maby we could arrange something, so maby it would be the right time to do a nice protest.

Im saying that I thinkalong with many others that we should be given Diamorphin, maby for those that cant stop re-offending.

See im confused now. It seems like the gear is going up in purity but what about how we have felt? What about the people that have being given a lifeline and being forced off it! I think we should all stick togeather an get people to listen to what we say and what previous research.

I would be greafull if anyone could help me out by writing articulate words and reasons as to why we should be listened to.

I have e-mailed my MP again saying basically that I think they are too scared of change and just dont know where to start. I have been dedicating my-self to this plight and probly will continue to do so.I have included all links as they really need to know that we CANNOT carry on to live in a society with NO "illegal drug regulation".I just hope that im not on my own here,I know im not.We can and will do it togeather if im to be involved in this malarky.

Here is a copy of what I sent to my local MP.Not let utalise and make a stance.

MG West Yorkshire said...

I am wondering if you have had a reply from the Minister regarding better treatment for "Heroin addicts".I have been clean from Heroin for just under a month now and have been speaking with loads of people on the net,looking at news paper blogs and Heroin users forums as-well as normal feelings about drugs.

It is the fact that the normal consensus is that drugs should be sort of legalised under regulation.If you take a look at the following statement and the link you will see that there is a hell of allot of people re-writing the Drug policy,and in this people are getting together to find a way to"classify"the system.

STATEMENT OF DRUG CLASS.
regulate drug sales to a scale of harm and place all drugs on the act list(that includes alcohol and such),put age limits in place,tax and remove the market from the "Mr big"criminals,separate the sale of soft and hard drugs to remove the dealers gateway effect and concentrate on weaning those off of hard drugs at their pace with guidance,invest the tax on education , health and policing! its very simple and proven to work unlike prohibition that costs £110 billion a year with a 1% success rate and uses its own side effects to implement more prohibition like the con man paradox it is!

yes lets remove drugs from the hands of children and criminal control and lets not give the addicts of now,reasons to commit crimes to fund their habit because they have no help and lets remove all future addicts from criminal control,turning off the flow of all future addicts to a drip.you see a regulated system will do more to reduce drug related harm than prohibition ever could for less,in a fraction of the time,even paying for its own success if managed in the right harm reduction way,so if we spend £110 billion a year on a system of regulation based on a scale of harm,where's the evidence saying it wont work,as there is plenty of evidence showing prohibition has never worked in the last 40 years,it looks to me like this money that's not getting the job done is funding these con men and promoting more prohibition and they will do what ever they can to keep it that way (easy money),considering they have the marketing lobby power and money to do so to.

I would like to see introduction rates to harder drugs like heroin reduced by separating the sales of unregulated substances,like cannabis, that kids find easier to get than more damaging alcohol,regulated so people dont end up getting sold harder drugs!
as the police cuts come into play this is going to be a green light to that type of criminals that will sell to kids,it is extremely frustrating,even more so when the so called government experts are almost all selected yes men and have no clue of the what they are talking about when it comes to cutting drug related harm,is it no wonder they refuse to take part in any public debate,but they will soon tell us what we the "public wants",poring good money into an already failed program is an ideal way to launder tax me thinks!

And the sourse: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/feb/16/release-helpline-closure-frank?commentpage=4#start-of-comments
I have ruined much of my adult life due to the fact that strong drug were not infact regulated.
I have the feeling that things aint going to stop her,I can see people protesting in London sometime this year as I feel that we are not being listerned to as a nation.
We definatly are in the best time for a drug re-form and I think it would just take the "guts" of one person to say that and so many people would be behind him/her,and that is the Governing Minister.Please do let me know what's being said if anything so then I will know what the next move will be.Thank-you so much for reading and I hope that as a country we can come to some sort of resolution soon otherwise my years of addiction just would not have been worth it somehow.

It is a marker of how depraved and dysfunctional the policy of prohibition is, that a story such as this

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-12588316

Three men have been found dead at addresses in Lancashire within about an hour.

The men, aged 52, 36, and 32, were found in properties in Burnley, Colne and Nelson between 2315 GMT on Friday and 0020 GMT on Saturday.

Police have said they are treating the deaths as unexplained but are concerned they may be linked to a batch of heroin in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crimestoppers.

Det Ch Insp Stuart Dixon, of Lancashire Police, said: "It is too early to say whether the cause of the deaths are connected, but we are concerned that there could be a particularly strong batch of heroin in the area and I would urge anyone who uses heroin and who may be concerned to contact their local healthcare provider.

"We have circulated a warning to our partners in the healthcare agencies and those that offer support to drug users."

....might be the news we have been waiting for - that decent gear is finally back in supply again. Three more totally unnecessary and preventable deaths to add to the long list of those killed by policies which seek to impose someone elses moral choices on others.

Just for the last poster

I aint used for 4 weeks today an I think the reason that northaners have been getting better gear is because we are closer to Bradford then you.

We are more likly to get first as of the indian live here, thats all I can say to the question.

Anyone else any thoughts on that???

Gledwood said...

I'm in London the gear is still shit and I have a clear (on methadone) system that used to get used on top of all the time now I just cannot be bothered with shitty crap I can barely feel straight in a vein let alone skinpopping. Wouldn't smoke it myself, I just cannot feel anything by smoking. I wouldn't advise anyone start banging up. Single biggest mistake I made apart from going on heroin was going on the needle when we're lucky really to have smoking heroin.

There have been odd bits of good shit but so incredibly sparse I for one am not the only one who just cannot be bothered may as well buy a carrier bag full of cream eggs and be sick as a tiny bit of brown. I mean what do you get for a score. Half a gram of crap? Or less than that for something half decent. It's all a big waste of time. I have a score right here that's eating away at me to use but I don't know who to ring and I'm fed up of wasting my time with this shit.

Sorry I can't say anything more positive.

drought update- East London

Well everyone, it appears that I spoke a BIT too soon!! Today, got 2 calls from the 2 main peeps I deal with, saying the pre-drought proper 10/10 is BACK. So, I went and bought some, and yes, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy to say, that it is HERE. The taste, I'd forgotten truly what real H tasted like...but, oh how wonderfully I was reminded a little while ago!! So strong, I put just a tiny bit down and it is fantastic. Price isn't too bad, not as much as I thought it might be!!

Just thought I'd let ya'll know, cause if its in E. London, that's a good sign!! ;-)

Take care every1 and be safe!

10 arrests over three East Lancashire 'heroin' deaths

THREE men found dead in separate towns in just one hour may have taken the same super-strength batch of heroin, according to police.

The bodies of Robin Ferguson, 53, Emlyn Hodgkinson, 36 and Zaheer Chaudhry, 32, were discovered at houses in Burnley, Colne and Nelson respectively on Friday night.

Detectives fear the Class A drug, which caused the men to overdose, may have come from the same batch with a particularly high-level of purity.

Following the deaths, officers swooped on suspected heroin dealers, making 10 arrests for alleged drugs supply offences.

The six women and four men held were aged between 29 and 51 and from Burnley, Brierfield, Colne, Nelson and Accrington. All have been bailed until May 27.

Police found the body of Mr Ferguson after being called by the ambulance service to a house in Tennis Street, Daneshouse, Burnley, at 11.15pm on Friday.

Around 15 minutes later, just after 11.30pm, they were called to a property in Oak Street, Horsfield, Colne, where they discovered Mr Hodgkinson’s body.

Mr Chaudrey’s body was found at a house in Eagle Street, Bradley, Nelson, at around 12.15am.

Although the deaths are being treated as unexplained at this stage, they are believed to be drugs-related.

They are urging heroin users across East Lancashire to be wary of a potentially-fatal batch of the drug.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Dixon, of Burnley CID, said: "It is too early to say whether the cause of the deaths are connected, but we are concerned that there could be a particularly strong batch of heroin in the area.

“I would urge anyone who uses heroin and who may be concerned to contact their local healthcare provider.

“There is nothing to suggest, from our investigation at this time, that the drug had been contaminated by any other substance.

“From the work we have done we think it is likely to be from a stronger batch, with a higher level of purity, rather than it having been mixed with something poisonous.

"We have circulated a warning to our partners in the healthcare agencies and those that offer support to drug-users."

I have been scoring everyday, i am getting quite good H that gives a decent wack when digging say even .2s (10er) but i was digging .5s (25) and what a dunt i was getting i was only putting the plunger a quarter of the way in my eyes pinned to literally nothing and i could feel the rush,taste,warmness going up my spine and all over my head and to be honest i had a bit of panic (thought id got a hot dose) but i was in safe company so i finished my dig and i was smashed, like pissed as a fart. My pals who had necked a few blues where lying slouched, crashed out and totally gone with the wind but due to my tolerance from being on the green handcuffs i tend not to get as wasted as others.
I have changed to smoking it and i am enjoying it better, no creepy diseases to worry about or abscesses anymore, the gear looks crap but is actually in my 14 odd years of H addiction not bad at all for being the worst dry up "ever", it does have an orange look,that sort of waxy look though not sticky shit, for maybe 3 lines out of a score deal (.4) the bash is all but gone. But that aside its quite strong, my pal a 20 year veteran of brown fell asleep standing up after having a dig in his leg mumbling and laughing to himself after i woke him up and got him to plant his arse on the couch, i fell asleep to wake up on this laptop with a big dent on my forehead that was agony for days. The crap mixed through it i blame on the "young gangsters" having access to it and not knowing what to mix it with. It is still quite bad here (Springburn,Possilpark,Milton,Barmulloch,Balornock Bishopbriggs etc but the guy i see has had it every day for 3 moons and a lot longer, it did dip to that coca cola colored gear in the tools but back to brown. So stay safe, always burn a few lines on the foil to at least test the strength etc. Hopefully it gets back to normal for all and that where i can also score locally as opposed to going to the Sticks everyday.

this drought has been bizare, ive heard of scousers turning up in the midlands looking for gear...and while down south things seem to be back on track im still struggling in nottinghamshire..once i saw a guy on my way to score, and he said that the dealer i was off to see had the most amazing shit, when i got it back and smoked a bit, it tasted like fish, felt a bit like ketamine, and saw me passed out for a good few hours. is that rohypnol? i felt awful the next day.
a lot of people have turned to white, i got some the other day and i didnt even feel like finishing it (!!!!!when does that happen????) cos i knew there was no dark to come down with.
soooo sad!but i get down south east when i can.
i heard there was nothing in france in november as well. trade routes in turkey is one theory.
we cant let our culture crumble!
love to you all out there may ur gear run like it should i appreciate this blog a lot thanx

and to add to my last post i mean fish like copydex fish not like the catch in ur throat fish

mattyorks said...

It could maybe be rohipnol but you said that it had a "fishy" taist so im not sure. I do think its are getting better tho-your correct.

Just gotta be safe and still only score off whom you know is safe threw word of mouth.

Gledwood how have you being? Ive being coming back to see you but not seen owt that youve wrote. Hows things where you are? Do you work?

The arse wholes are cutting gear with SUBBIES and I have physical proof of illness of this over a period of time. Suffering chest pains, Anxiety, generally un-well vomiting heavilly and shitting out of the eye of a needle.I dunno why they are doing this , and I can't afford it to happen to me no more, its doing my head in. I can only take Mathadone and the mixture with SUBBIES isn't good, been smoking over 15 yrs now, and I remember the gear of the 90's when U put the rock on the foil and U could run the rock of H, before it melted into a beetle, that must have been the Burmese. At the time then thank god there weren't as many Subbies about, why can't they just mix it with anything but Subbie, even my urine tests come up with a faint line of subbies, this is nothing but greedyness, the bastards,.

mhw/wales somehow decent gear in newport/cardiff and hence the valleys coz that's where the slingers go,been like it for about a month thankfully long may it last.

Well I say it again, I'm pist off I find it hard to raise the money for a score and when all I can get is 10, and knowing its fucking cut with some Opiate antagonist, Its like shooting myself in the foot and spending a tenner just to feel the fooking pain, unless however I can raise an exctra fiver, then am laughin.I just pray to god the guy who Ive been scoring off the past 2 weeks now, doesn't fall into this game, his gear has got more potent, and whatever its cut with isn't toxic as far as I know it, it has a sweet taste which always points to Benzo's,and a bit like a sweet chocolate taste some high fibre shite slimming powder o, or some kind but its SAFE.For as long as I have been back with him, my chest pains have eased off except for Sunday when I decided to risk it, and score from the other ideot who bashes some more with Subbies, or something that doesn't agree, hell I have been smoking neons, of years and am just happy now to have an ok safe smoke without getting fucking seroiusly ill several hrs after, that is when I can afford to and now its NEARLY wednesday with the exact same bullshit, chest pains etc.But I know they will pass, so my biggest worry is finding the money to score, I dont graft never have done thats a big no no for me, cos some other cunt gets the back of it and its not my way, instead I just fucking rob, and rape my own arse, hell its my choice as though its something I enjoy doing, anyway payday , Monday and guess what gonna happen then,??? have a guess, till then tarrah peep'sb take care , any cloudyness in that so called sticky toffee beetle fucking chuck it , a dusty, cloudy look is never a good sign , till then see yas. Mite report back on Monday when I'm not whittering ,and complaining about my own doings tarrah. Pablito,, Bradford.

I would like for you to take up the issue of Heroin addiction and the treatments available in the UK. I am reading internet forums online and the general consensus is that some addicts cannot get clean and need to use, They would be more than happy to work full time and pay for Diamorphin out of there wages.

There is all sorts of perks, cleaner drugs, you know its safe, help's take working girls off the streets and the big gangs would no-longer have the money to fund crime as addicts would no-longer need to buy drugs off them.

I have being an addict for 10 years and would love to work but keep coming up against an age old problem of Methadone. Methadone is bad for the body, It gets right in to the bones, breaks and erodes teeth and is not for everyone, but we don't get a choice because no-one speaks up, we just have to take it.
Methadone is seen as a maintained treatment nut does not work for everyone that uses it. It is the general feeling that addicts cannot be prescribed Diamorphin until they have tried and failed on all treatment, being into prison a few times then having a near death experience before a Dr will prescribe Diamorphin.

So you could say Under current guidelines, Tony (a user) will have to screw up pretty spectacularly on all other treatment options to be considered. A couple of failed rehabs, a stretch inside, a near-death hopsitalisation and a proximity to pension age seem to be minimum requirements nowadays. Isn't it about time someone took a good look at the present arrangements? Save everyone a lot of time?

Is it correct to think that if a Heroin addict was prescribed Diamorphin that this person would be able to stay in full time employment and not have to spend money on Heroin that the dealer uses for crime sometime down the line? I belive that if an addict was prescribed threw a Dr then the addict can pay some of his/her wage towards there prescription?

It is the fact that the normal consensus is that drugs should be sort of legalised under regulation. If you take a look at the following statement and the link you will see that there is a hell of allot of people re-writing the Drug policy, and in this people are getting together to find a way to "classify" the system.

STATEMENT OF DRUG CLASS.
Regulate drug sales to a scale of harm and place all drugs on the act list (that includes alcohol and such ), put age limits in place , tax and remove the market from the "Mr big " criminals , separate the sale of soft and hard drugs to remove the dealers gateway effect and concentrate on weaning those off of hard drugs at their pace with guidance ,invest the tax on education , health and policing ! its very simple and proven to work unlike prohibition that costs £110 billion a year with a 1% success rate and uses its own side effects to implement more prohibition like the con man paradox it is!

yes lets remove drugs from the hands of children and criminal control and lets not give the addicts of now, reasons to commit crimes to fund their habit because they have no help and lets remove all future addicts from criminal control , turning off the flow of all future addicts to a drip . you see a regulated system will do more to reduce drug related harm than prohibition ever could for less, in a fraction of the time , even paying for its own success if managed in the right harm reduction way ,
so if we spend £110 billion a year on a system of regulation based on a scale of harm , where's the evidence saying it wont work ,as there is plenty of evidence showing prohibition has never worked in the last 40 years , it looks to me like this money that's not getting the job done is funding these con men and promoting more prohibition and they will do what ever they can to keep it that way (easy money) , considering they have the marketing lobby power and money to do so too.

Mattyorks said...

i would like to see introduction rates to harder drugs like heroin reduced by separating the sales of unregulated substances , like cannabis, that kids find easier to get than more damaging alcohol , regulated so people don't end up getting sold harder drugs !
as the police cuts come into play this is going to be a green light to that type of criminals that will sell to kids ,it is extremely frustrating , even more so when the so called government experts are almost all selected yes men and have no clue of the what they are talking about when it comes to cutting drug related harm , is it no wonder they refuse to take part in any public debate , but they will soon tell us what we the "public wants" , poring good money into an already failed program is an ideal way to launder tax me thinks!


And the sourse: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/feb/16/release-helpline-closure-frank?commentpage=4#start-of-comments

I have ruined much of my adult life due to the fact that strong drug were not infact regulated.

I have the feeling that things aint going to stop her, I can see people protesting in London sometime this year as I feel that we are not being listerned to as a nation.
We definatly are in the best time for a drug re-form and I think it would just take the "guts" of one person to say that and so many people would be behind him/her, and that is the Governing Minister.

Now as you may know the country is just coming out of the Heroin drought/blight and there have been three deaths within just one hour. My feeling is that there will be more before things change. When the stronger Heroin gets into the UK, there will be more and more deaths(OD)and because its not bash (diluted Heroin) the next generation of users will become addicted by drug pushers so that the dealers can maintain their profits as the "old users" have got clean and not wanted to buy "bashed up gear" which has undoubtedly has took lives.

Thankyou for taking the time to read this letter and I do hope that while we have these problems with Libya that we can use this to our advantage and start to look at other treatment methods-keeping our own money in our own country. This just makes a whole lot of sence and we should now be revising what we can do to inprove the situation and deal with the on-going issue of "Harm reduction".

Hi there Gled's & whoever else is listening. Not sure if this is the right place but seems like where I'm most likely to get an answer.Been gettin the same shite as everyone for months. Just enough 'H' in it to stave off the sickness & give u a faint glow depending on the amount.All this changed a little over a week ago when what looks like 'pharmie' gear turned up out o the blue. Getting to the point; It's pure white, needs no citric & can't be smoked! We split 0.1 between 3 of us & were blootered. Being greedy I sneeked 0.05 to myself & ended up with a burn on my leg (From heater) was spewing for hours like when first started & when I finaly got it together to look in the mirror. Both eyes were lookin in opposite directions ;-) We're gettin oz's little bit dearer than pre drought but who's complaining. Just seems crazy to be gettin quantity of this,when way way back in the day all u got was whatever someone sold from a chemist that had been robbed. Not No4/China White.Is it Diamorphine Hydrochloride?Or is it some kind of other pharmicutical grade opiate?

Gledwood said...

You lucky bastard yeah it sounds like you have number four heroin, H4, heroin hyrdochloride, Thai White, China White whatever you want to call it. In about 12 years I've only had 2 batches of white heroin that cooked up without citric (and hasn't been pre-acidified; I tasted them to make sure).

Batch one looked almost identical to talc, it was powder, stark white, v fluffy and snorted like a dream. Someone had mixed mannitol or something in with it so on foil it ran literally like a drop of water (same colour as tap water) but wouldn't smoke it just ran and ran so whatever cut, mannitol or caffeine it was a waste of time. I was into smoking then so I HAD to snort this gear. My friend made a hit out of it and it looked just like tapwater. She said it was A grade China White.

The other batch came in late summer 2008 I thought I had been knocked as it looked JUST like crack (good crack from the "olden days) remember the golden stuff we used to get? Well this had a slight golden tinge and looked JUST like crack it must have been 90-something percent purity it blew the liing shit out of me I did ONE point in a vein and was slumped over the sink not knowing where I was, what day it was, what I was doing, totally fucked like I hadn't been in a LONG long time. This stuff smelled of vinegar. I checked with someone in Australia where China White is the normal gear and he said yeah it smells of vinegar (nothing at all like "B"). This was REALLY hard, nearly broke my thumb nail splitting the rock in half, it took some cooking to break down not because it was bashed or crap just so very very rock hard and looked like weak piss in the works. I'd estimate (purely on intuition) it was something like 95% pure I mean seriously this shit was CRYSTALLINE I have never ever seen translucent gear ever I so wish I could have got a regular supply but this bastard only had it for a few days. I kept asking for it back and he was like yeah yeah. A stupid kid who didn't know his heroin arse from his crack elbow you know the type.

I knew someone on a diamorph script. I wouldn't have believed him if I hadn't seen the amps myself. His were 30mg (you also get 100mg ones) but they were cutting him down. He said if you break the amp open and wrap the pharmy gear in paper it literally sinks in, so this is how you would know pharmaceutical gear it's really really delicate and sinks into paper whereas high grade H4 won't. Also pharmy gear, so I hear, is 100% artificial, has never seen a poppy in its life.

You put me in heroin heaven just thinking about this shit I ADORED "China White" as I called it (the name was a point of contention among my friends who said it was from Thailand and I said "no it's from Burma" blah blah blah the fascinating conversations you have when high... haha

if you get that back it goes without saying take EXTRME CARE it's not worth dying trying to get high

good on ya for finding such great gear, here's to being lucky again mate ;-)

ps i was called a drug snob over my H4 preference and I admit I only ever had it twice (2 batches) in just over 10 years but it's what I loved, not snobbery just what, as a junkie, I genuinely loved

i always found lighter gear tended to have a better slam when IVd whereas darker gear was more of a creeper (but much gauwchier) I didn't know other people did this but mixing dark and light gear (tar and H4) in America is called an Oreo and I did a few myself with dark hash-looking stuff and white heroin base H3 which was really whooshy almost like IV coke it slammed so hard... o boy those were the days

being as I'm (mostly) off heroin now and am supposed to be all responsible I'll reiterate BE CAREFUL PLEASE injecting high grade shit and watch your friends, if they gauwch check they're answering i know this sounds saddo but better to be sad than watch your friend OD OK sermon over and again congratulations on finding Ambrosia, the Heroin of the Gods!

hi,
Norfolk agen;)
was just looking 4 bens diary where u saw comments re parents on gear.
This is my favourite soapbox (bit like u i imagine)
i could go on all day about y tis ok 2 have a toot wen they in bed. or even a sneaky one in the toilet when they not in bed(shock fucking horror);-) especially if they being bastards (yes and blame them for it ;-) JOKE!) and how they got ps3 way before any other kids etc etc (yes even if its guilt compensation, they still got it)They dont care why when they boasting to ther mates.
imagine if jeremy kyle heard that.
he flps his lid if he hears someone has smoked a spliff in same street as a child.
Anyway i wont go on just was very interested 2 read the comments if u could direct me please . . .

Anna Rainville

Seems like this blog has died gledwood. Could you poosbley make your self available two weeks before the Government ministers break up for summer. As you know I have been comprising letters for the MP's and have just again finished typing another that is in-line with current policy but finding the bits that just don't seem to be the truth. I would like to know how many peoples would be up for a polite picket and protest in London two weeks before they break up for summer.

Please make yourselfs known so I have the will to carry on doing what I am doing.

I do hope that your OK. Hows things where you are?

I know that here the gear is still rank and bashed up. I heard it is still carrying on due to the market in Russia being more lucrative for the Afghans there than it is here.

I'm OK only news I know of is that there's more normal stuff than there used to be but still loads of crap.

But the amount of normal has gone up a lot it threw me unconscious the other day but it still doesn't hit the spot and that was heroin not benzo-heroin. It just doesn't do it for me just doesn't hit the spot it used to no matter how good it is.

I do post today y'know you just put http://gledwood2.blogspot.com and you get the most recent bullshit I have written it's all there.

I hope everyone is OK. Probably the no of comments has gone down because the gear has gone back up people feeling less desperate.

Also a lot of oldtimers just stopped. The normal is probably at the lower end of normal IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD but feels good to us bc we're used to methadone or crap.

That's probably the truth.

Re drought;
keep hearing Leicester ok but keep buying stuff that would not have bought pre-drought, there is a teaser of Gear in it, but i dont want to be "teased" at £10 a time.
never have to check front teeth before i go out any more ;-(
and the sticky tooter, or even worse the white powdery tooter says it all. still keep wasting money though. Please . . .something good soon x

Christiane F

"Wir, Kinder vom Bahnhoff Zoo" by "Christiane F", memoir of a teenage heroin addict and prostitute, was a massive bestseller in Europe and is now a set text in German schools. Bahnhoff Zoo was, until recently, Berlin's central railway station. A kind of equivalent (in more ways than one) to London's King's Cross... Of course my local library doesn't have it. So I'm going to have to order it through a bookshop and plough through the text in German. I asked my druggieworker Maple Syrup, who is Italiana how she learned English and she said reading books is the best way. CHRISTIANE F: TRAILER You can watch the entire 120-min movie in 12 parts at my Random blog. Every section EXCEPT part one is subtitled in English (sorry: but if you skip past you still get the gist) ~ to watch it all click HERE.

To See Gledwood's Entire Blog...

DID you find my blog via a Google or other search? Are you stuck on a post dated some time ago? Do you want to read Gledwood Volume 2 right from "the top" ~ ie from today?
If so click here and you'll get to the most recent post immediately!

Drugs Videos

Most of these come from my Random blog, which is an electronic scrapbook of stuff I thought I might like to view at some time or other. For those who want to view stuff on drugs I've collected the very best links here. Unless otherwise stated these are full-length features, usually an hour or more.

If you have a slow connexion and are unused to viewing multiscreen films on Youtube here's what to do: click the first one and play on mute, stopping and starting as it does. Then, when it's done, click on Repeat Play and you get the full entertainment without interruption. While you watch screen one, do the same to screens 2, 3 and so on. So as each bit finishes, the next part's ready and waiting.

Mexican Black Tar Heroin: "Dark End"

Khun Sa, whose name meant Prince Prosperous, had been, before his death in the mid 2000s, the world's biggest dealer in China White Heroin: "Lord of the Golden Triangle"

In-depth portrait of the Afghan heroin trade at its very height. Includes heroin-lab bust. "Afghanistan's Fateful Harvest"

Classic miniseries whose title became a catchphrase for the misery of life in East Asian prison. Nicole Kidman plays a privileged middle-class girl set up to mule heroin through Thai customs with the inevitable consequences. This is so long it had to be posted in two parts. "Bangkok Hilton 1" (first 2 hours or so); "Bangkok Hilton 2" (last couple of hours).

Short film: from tapwater-clear H4 in the USA to murky black Afghan brown in Norway: "Heroin Addicts Speak"

Before his untimely death this guy kept a video diary. Here's the hour-long highlights as broadcast on BBC TV: "Ben: Diary of a Heroin Addict". Thanks to Noah for the original link.

Some of the most entertaining scenes from Britain's top soap (as much for the poor research as anything else). Not even Phil Mitchell would go from nought to multi-hundred pound binges this fast: "Phil Mitchell on Crack" (just over 5 minutes).

Scientist lady shows us how to cook up gear: "How Much Citric?" Lucky cow: her brown is 70% purity! Oddly we never see her actually do her hit... maybe she got camera shy...

And lastly:

German documentary following a life from teenage addiction to untimely death before the age of 30. The decline in this girl's appearance is truly shocking. "Süchtig: Protokoll einer Hilflosigkeit". Sorry no subtitles; this is here for anyone learning German who's after practice material a little more gripping than Lindenstraße!
