I'm sorry if my comments on opiods came off as insensitive to not only you but anyone else, as I know some people genuinely rely on them for relief from chronic pain and just how hard it can be to balance pain/relief through opiods. I can't imagine the struggle with that.

I doubt anyone who has to take them would be offended, I’m not, it’s a different kettle of fish taking something because you have to and taking it for fun.

My daily dose of morphine is literally enough to kill a cow, yet that and the other massive pile of pills I have to take every day still don’t completely remove my pain - but I consistently refuse to take any more. I don’t want to be incapable of the kind of thought processes I need for work and throwing more drugs at the problem would just make me less coherent - yup, even more than normal :D

@Subtle Demise this is right up your way my dude.

As for me, I don't know anything about the pills and drugs. :rolleyes:
Well if you insist. I'll try to list them off in the order I tried them to the best of my ability, at the risk of sounding like that scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: cigarettes, alcohol, weed, hydrocodone, codeine, suboxone, tramadol, kratom, meth, ativan, xanax, oxycodone, 2-CB, cocaine, and U-47700, which happened to my favorite until the DEA banned it because people were dying instantly from overdosing on it. It was basically like unregulated short-acting heroin. Oh there were also some "mystery press" pills I bought from the deepweb once. Probably not the smartest thing in the world, since they contained fentanyl and a cocktail of methamphetamine, benzodiazapines, and who knows what else. They were made from the droppings of the seller's pill press. So yeah, probably the dumbest thing I've ever tried, but at least I was smart enough to crush them up and take little bumps off my fist instead, following with a saline nasal spray. I was either amped up and loving life, or nodding off at the computer.

I mostly stick to just kratom and booze nowadays. Smoke a bowl or two of some strong weed when I get home from work until bed time as long as the kids aren't here, otherwise I wait until they are in bed. I'd like to buy a house with some back yard property and grow some natural medicine like poppies and cannabis.

I can only warn you guys to be very carefull no matter what kind of drugs you use ...

My father is only 64 and talking with him he seems more or less clear in his head but as he is smoking and drinking a lot and can hardly stand anymore, he didn't left his flat for more then 3 years ! (shopping is done online or trough his brother). He "can't" even get into the bathtub to take a shower so no shower since many years and so on ... all because of the drugs ! (next month he gets a new flat with a shower with low entry and a chair inside so hope this will help a little ....)

It is really hard when you have to deal with a drug addict in your familiy especially if its close family like Parents or Children.

I’m impressed you can remember, I just tried and couldn’t think of half of it....... maybe it was all the jellies I ate back in the day :D I can remember the biggies, the rest, well that’s just a blur. But a damn enjoyable blur

I take Ritalin to cope with ADHD/Asperger's related concentration/stress issues, if that counts. I'm extremely noise sensitive. Background noise and multitasking becomes a bit more bearable that way. I wouldn't be able to do any work without it.

Apart from that I don't do drugs, I don't even drink alcohol. It scares me how it changes the behaviour of people and I made a vow never to touch that stuff. If I want to relax I listen to music.

I have chronic pain in the jar and I'm stuck with arthrosis from a cycling accident. It got so bad that I actually thought about trying cannabis for a while, but a friend who also has Asperger's recommended I should try CBD oil instead which contains no THC. I'd never heard of it before. It was a good idea. It's expensive and I'm not 100% pain free, but I can somewhat enjoy life again.

I'm also less anxious when talking to people. It might be helpful for aspies and other people with anxiety issues.

It's a shame that no doctor recommends CBD against chronic pain, at least not here in Germany. They always give you Ibuprofen. If anybody finds themselves in a similar situation, be careful with Ibu and related pain medication. I was taking Ibu 600 for a few weeks and it caused me stomach pain that took months to fully go away.

I'm a chronic pain sufferer, too. I have two herniated discs, and one ruptured along with arthritis in my spine. I'm all too familiar with the damages caused by NSAIDs (Ibuprofen, Advil, etc.) They eat away your stomach lining and also do a number on your kidneys. I much prefer GABA analogues for the legal route. Phenibut and Gabapentin work wonders for nerve pain, and also help immensely with anxiety. They've also helped me get over alcoholism for the most part. In a perfect world, though, I'd just use cannabis products. My state isn't legal yet, so CBD retailers mark up their products exponentially because of the novelty behind a legal cannabis product. So, it's rather expensive here, too.

Nothing. Never been trash enough to need to alter my reality to enjoy life. I guess if you're boring, drugs are a great option.

I’m not boring enough to play music at parties. Don’t need to spice up the atmosphere and make it more fun with tunes. Just my personality and voice alone is all that’s needed. I’m the most interesting man in the world. I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos Equis. Stay thirsty my friends.

That's awesome. I envy people who have a quality of life without drugs. I hate feeling like a chemical dump, but it's a necessary evil. Some offer a better experience than others that are rather meaningful. For example, before psychotherapy, I could barely leave my house let alone hold down a job. They helped me 180 into running my own business and then management over a fabrication business. I've learned that drug use is incredibly dependent on the user, and they don't inherently make a person bad when the drugs are treated with the respect they deserve. This is the problem with recreational use as it totally disregards what tools drugs can be.

Considering I stay sound of mind, none, ever. I also lump alcohol into the drug mix, because my family on both sides have dealt with horrible addictions to alcohol, leading to both physical and mental detriment. I don’t trust myself to go down that road and come back, going off the ways my parents struggle(d) with alcohol. There’s something, deep down, where that potential for addictive behavior lies, and I’m not going to test it.

As for a less serious response: white chocolate, or perhaps sugar in general. I will cut you for a small bag of candy.

This is a really interesting perspective. When I clicked on this thread, I didn’t expect replies revolving around drug needs for health—I only assumed it would be about drug use of varying legality and recreational uses. Thanks for sharing your take.

I wish people would be more careful with alcohol. It's always treated so lightly.
Being socially accepted/expected doesn't make it less harmful than the heavier drugs or nicotin. I've never touched alcohol in my life, I prefer to keep a clear mind.

People often don't know their limits.

I hate it when my parents or friends drink and I'm the only sober one in the room, I absolutely despise it. I can't stand their stupid, pointless rambling and unfunny, dirty jokes. My father spends every second day in a pub after work. On these days I won't leave my room when he's back home...

My mother just plays it down when I point it out.

Ok, I'm fine, sorry.
I apologize for the rant, but I needed to get this out.

Aside from taking Adderal (Legitimately need it) just weed & edibles. If Alcohol counts then yes to that as well although I don't normally drink... But when I do, it get's pretty wild (in a good way, I am a sociable drunk which is a stark contrast to sober me).

This is what I've tried to my best recollection.

Phenobarbitol - Downers. They were in my medicine cabinet. Sleepy sleepy.
NyQuil - drink the whole bottle and you'll hallucinate for five minutes and pass out.
Alcohol - you name it, i drank it
Tobacco - not a drug. Smoked for 20 years.
Marijuana - Smoke it, eat it, vape it.Good times.
LSD - Acid is fun. You see things. Everything moves. Your mind goes all over. I used to love to fry in the 90's
Methamphetamine - common around here. Like drinking 20 pots of coffee. Stay up playing guitar and N64 for a week.
Mushrooms - Like LSD but mellow
Inhalants - intense hallucinations, for about 5 minutes at a time.
Nitrous Oxide,- inhalant. Hippie crack.
Cocaine - Numb face. Talking to a stranger for 6 hours with a nose bleed and no penis
Ecstacy - Feels good. Touch me again.
Crack - intense rush for 2 minutes. Then looking for more. Shit drug.
PCP - angry dream world. Gone in minutes. Another shitty one.
Opium - mellow dream world. Relaxing
Salvia- wtf was that?

I wanted to try it all once and no needles. Mission accomplished i think....

    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly
