16. Oxy – Oxycodone (Oxycontin)
Although oxycodone or “oxy” can be found in prescribed pills such as Oxycontin, it’s still a highly-addictive drug. As a powerful painkiller, patients recovering from severe physical injury become dependent on “oxy” in order to feel “normal” and pain-free like they used to feel. At parties, “oxy” is often taken with alcohol. Such a lethal combination can slow the user’s heart rate and breathing to dangerously low levels.
Example: “You want to mix some oxy and alc?”
17. Percs – Oxycodone (Percocet)
“Percs” or Percocet is also a commonly abused opioid comprised of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Like “oxy,” “percs” are highly addictive and can be fatal when taken in combination with alcohol.
Example: “I might just pop a perc tonight.”
18. Lit – Alcohol
“Lit” generally refers to the feeling of being so inebriated by drugs to the point that everything feels enjoyable. However, one can be “lit” after having more than just alcohol. “Lit” persons can be “crossed,” or energized off some combination of MDMA and alcohol, or cocaine and alcohol.
Example: “We’re gonna get hella lit tonight!”
