Oxycodone is especially addictive, and there is word in the medical profession that it should be banned. At least in the United States. In the nhs it is used, but not regularly. I have prescribed it maybe four times in two years. Two of them for patients who had a below knee amputation of the leg.
Moral of the story: synthetic opiates are bad news if you can't control yourself. Known a few people who cut their lives short while doing it.
Interesting tale. I've only taken three of these beasts, and am currently dealing with what can only be withdrawal. Crazy-making! It is a wonder to be so sensitive, but very inconvenient, too.

It becomes a need, like food or water, and people tend to start rationalizing their addiction. I will stop tomorrow, I will cut down from this point on etc. There is no such thing as responsible use with opioids. People who seem like they are using them responsibly have just not descended far down enough.
Black tar is heroin afaik, not opium. Never encountered it, never been in a place where it is made.
CNS depressants are the ultimate escapism in drug form. Dissociatives are probably the better option for mindsphere exploration type experience, though most want something to avoid that.
It is odd that heroin should be accessible illegally in say, the US, by anyone who wishes to procure it; except the people who actually need it. Those who are suffering with preventable extreme pain are denied.
