In this case, I feel this thread deserves a disclaimer, since I wrote so glowingly about SWIM's experience below. Tell all your SWIMmers to be careful with this one if they desire to attempt something like this. And remember: SWIM took half his normal dose when he tried this for the first time. Experiment carefully.
SWIM has never found a better use for the phrase "Don't knock it 'til you try it" before now.
He doesn't do OxyContin very often, because it's hard to come by. But he does have a high opiate
tolerance in general, so it takes a lot of the OC ingested orally (at least 80mg, crushed) to make much of a difference. As a consequence of orally taking so much OC, he usually ends up with nausea. It made the last OC80 he took rather unpleasant!
But tonight, he decided to try the infamous "plugging
," for the first time ever, since he read that it can help users take their drug
while avoiding nausea. SWIM cut an OC80 in half, crushed up one of the 40mg halves, mixed it in warm water, and squirted it up there. After just 10 minutes... holy crap! SWIM has never felt better in a long
time! He cannot believe it worked so well.
Call it whatever you want... dirty, gross, wrong, whatever. The fact is it works, and works with less of a dose. SWIM can't imagine doing it any other way from now on... assuming he's in the privacy of his own home, of course; he would have a hard time figuring out a way to pull this off at work!
