In this article, I’m going to explain why I chose to stop snorting Percocet. I used to LOVE snorting Percocet.
It was like a dream.
However, before long this actually became my worst nightmare.
My first experience snorting Percocet was at the age of 23.
At first, I would snort about 5-10 mg of Percocet, and that was enough to make me feel higher and better than any other drug in my life-to-date.
I liked the high and numb feeling so much. Snorting Percocet made me feel complete.
I was able to snort Percocet and other opiates recreationally on rare occasions for over seven years…but then I became a daily user and an opiate addict. Here’s how…
Addiction to Snorting Percocet
When I was 30 years old I was living in Central New York, and one day I found someone that had OxyContin for sale.
I had just cashed my paycheck, I had the next two days off work, and I was very excited to once again snort some opiates.
Since it was so expensive, I could only afford to purchase about 150 mg of OxyContin.
After I bought the pills from my new dealer, I went to my friend’s house with a girl I was hanging out with, and all three of us started snorting Percocet.
I gave them a tiny bit each.
They only snorted about 10 mg of OxyContin each, which was plenty for them to feel high.
I snorted 40 mg of OxyContin and saved the rest for the weekend. That was the start of my opiate addiction.
I began spending all of my money (other than rent money) to buy OxyContin, Percocet, and any other opiate I could buy illegally.
Everything I did revolved around snorting Percocet and other opiate drugs.
I would snort opiates before work, snort them in the bathroom during work, and I would snort more when I got off work.
I did anything I could to keep snorting Percocet and more.
I sold things, asked people to loan me money, I lied, and I even stole a few times…just so I could prevent going through opiate withdrawal and living without my “Happy-Energy-Confidence Pills.”
I had become a full-blown opiate addict.
Why I Stopped Snorting Percocet
A few years after becoming an opiate addict, I stopped snorting Percocet, and I stopped all other opiates I was taking as well.
You see, snorting Percocet was quite fun at the beginning.
I didn’t have a tolerance, and I could spend a little money, snort some opiates, then drift off to a place where life made sense.
A place with no anxiety, no depression, no worries…it was by far the best feeling in the entire world.
However, this phase ended fast. I quickly developed a tolerance to snorting Percocet.
Snorting Percocet Ruined My Life
Aside from having an opiate tolerance and dependence, my addiction to snorting Percocet led to my giving up all of my hobbies and healthy activities in life.
The addiction consumed me.
Some people are able to snort Percocet from time-to-time for fun, and they don’t get addicted.
However, I was not one of those people.
Snorting Percocet hits you faster and harder than taking Percocet orally as its prescribed. Snorting Percocet puts you at a higher risk of overdose, and it’s also harder on your body than taking Percocet by mouth.
There are many dangers of snorting Percocet. For me, the consequences quickly began to outweigh the benefits.
Luckily, I was able to quit snorting Percocet, and I also quit all other opiates as well. Within about six weeks of being clean, my life quickly became better than ever.
It’s been over six years since I was addicted to snorting Percocet and other opiates, and I don’t miss it one bit.
