Yup that’s exactly my experience

Edit: seems like lean might be painkillers instead of DXM, but ultimately it’s cough syrup drugs and soda.

Yea real lean is codeine with promethazine cough syrup mixed with a soft drink, ice and occasionally jolly ranchers hard candy thrown in.


AeAeR t1_iu6dw8i wrote

Ah so one is prescription drugs and the other is OTC, and ultimately different drug types.

I’m glad I had sizzurp and not lean in that case, nothing good comes from painkillers.

Lol sizzurp and lean are the same thing. At least in Texas where all of this originates. Whatever you had wasn't sizzurp, purp, lean, drank etc. It was some other shit.

Man in New Jersey it was the same shit too but now I’m old and kids love their fucking opioids. The difference was we were going for DXM and not Oxy. It’s a completely different goal, we were trying to trip, not nod out.

DXM isn't lean though. People have been drinking codeine with promethazine since at least the 90s. The song "Sippin on Sizzurp" came out in the 90s and it's about opiate cough syrup. It's nothing new.

Sizzurp was Robotripping with sprite to like, all of New Jersey and New York, I was in college in north jersey for that to come out and it’s what people were doing. I understand that it’s different now but it was largely the same shit back then.

Jersey here also and sizzurp was always lean to us. Codeine syrup and promethazine. Robotripping was just called robotripping.

There's not much codeine in it though, not anywhere near enough to get you to 'nod out' or anything. The promethazine and alcohol combination do a lot of the heavy lifting.

When I was a crappy teenager I just stole out of the freezer/cabinet whatever wouldn't get noticed but I realize now how lucky I apparently was.

On a side note Kahlua does not sit well with red wine and hot wings.

Drinking a bottle of robitussin is so much worse for your liver than the codeine

Not if you get the kind without acetaminophen. It’s harder to find but it’s out there. You can also extract dxm pretty easily from syrup
