Opiophile is a force to be reckoned with ... huge member base.

I MISS OPIOPHILE SO MUCH! I did a search on the forum for more talk about the old community but there's not much here... I get that D&U is a new, different forum - not necessarily an "Opiophile 2.0" - but I'd like to start a thread (maybe even a topic?) to reminisce.

Maybe something with the subject, "Your Favorite Memories/Quotes/etc. from Opiophile"...

the info there definitely kept me alive, i've always been a solo user & figuring out stuff like how to shoot properly might not have gone so well without it.  not that it ended up "going well" for me, but i did live through it.

Id contribute and like to read that thread. It may stir up old memories and get good conversation going. If we can refrain from talking about the end and politics of opiophile, cause that's just a good way to bore and alienating to new nonopiophilers. And its been done in other threads.

in 2007, I found a place where I could be free to openly discuss issues, en masse, in the manner that I had been yearning for.

prior to that, I felt isolated and thought I was a freak ... the preoccupation I had with chemicals and syringes had become obsessive.

Opiophile changed all that. The site was vast and professional.

All the good people, the great stories, the solidarity and the wisdom ... all had a profound effect on me.

Since then, the world has moved on. Drugs are always in the news. Everybody is getting high. There are now more sites and almost everything now is available online.

the community has decentralised.

I miss the guys and girls who were right there from the start - ones we don't hear about.

I particularly enjoyed DV8's posts and Jacky's enthobonatical essays.

the site was a class act, for sure

@Z - I'll get right on that, it'd be nice to contribute something helpful, maybe even coherent to this community for a change! ... and I agree 1000% with @LadyKalma  - there are more than e-fucking-nough sites/forums/social clusterfucks/etc. for throwing unsolicited political beliefs down each other's throats. JT Snuffet? I don't seem to recall... I joined Opiophile somewhere between around 2012/13 I think - might've been before my time.

the info there definitely kept me alive, i've always been a solo user & figuring out stuff like how to shoot properly might not have gone so well without it.  not that it ended up "going well" for me, but i did live through it.

I can say with no hesitation that Opiophile's dedication to correcting misinformation, spreading accurate H.R. knowledge by recruiting medical professionals, etc. played a role on MULTIPLE occasions in keeping me living and breathing. Thank you, @candy and to all the admins and staff who kept Opiophile running through thick and thin for all those years!

You took the words right out of my mouth! Never before - and presumably, never again - will anything quite compare to Opiophile. Certainly there was a feeling of acceptance for drug users of all types and stripes...

of course i'm gonna promote this site ... by identifying one key difference - we allow more communication paths to those we wish to befriend. Probably not such a big deal since Facebook is all about that and many members have moved there too but it's still something that we did that was different.

it's easier to make new friends here.

But yep, it ain't no Opiophile ... and never intended to be.I just hope that we find more long lost members to bring back more of that vibe.

this forum has tried to give you the most compressive array of features that any place had to offer.

... but I still miss Ohiophile !

I know there are more communication methods these days and opiophile is not one of the only sources for that kind of information, like it may have been for many of us then. But the format of communication on a forum I feel is so superior to on facebook groups and whatnot. We can actually get to know each other better and form threads that go by slow enough for people to actually read them. And when people are searching for accurate harm reduction information I know that having this forum be a good resource and database for guests who may only be getting one side of the story from other places can help.

So all in all, yes its not opiophile, but I still value forum formats for discussing and archiving conversations and making lasting friendships and feeling less isolated. This forum,opiophile, and a handfull of others have kept me from being isolated in life and have brought me great joy and knowledge.

I'm sure I'm not the only person that doesn't really care it's gone. I got the most important thing/person of my life from that site and I will always be greatful for that but Byron that is Linda whatever. I toss the dick like 40 bucks but it's all gone and that's a cheap payment to know that I can't trust someone. It sucks that people believed a junky with so much money but I hope he will be snore cautious in who he trusts next time.
Fear and self loathing in thoms.

Jonny spent it on Pokemon memorabilia






My favorite threads were (of course) the angry hornet thread. That was priceless.


Also, the "I just robbed a gas station" thread, that was the stuff of legends.
