You can't be taking that shit days in a row. Gabapentin tolerance (at least acute, short-term tolerance) blows through the roof REALLY quick. It's also a shit drug by itself. Maybe pregabalin or phenibut derivatives taken by themselves are decent, but the two loosely affiliated gabapentinoid/GABAb agonist drugs I have a lot of experience with (i.e. gabapentin and baclofen, both by themselves and mixed with opioids, benzos, booze, z-drugs, nitrous, you name it even the weak barbituate butalbital) are absolutely garbage on their own for pseudo-recreational usage.
Like the bare minimum to make gabapentin remotely enjoyable would arguably be moderate amounts of booze and gabapentin, or moderately heavy to heavy amounts of booze and relatively light amounts of gabapentin (this can obviously be dangerous, just like mixing opi+gabs). Even then, gabs just make you feel more "fucked up"/trashed when drinking than just booze by itself. High dose gabs can make you really dizzy.
I can't stress enough that, with gabapentin in particular (how gab tolerance works, how the higher dosages you take within an arbitrary ~15-45min time period, the lower and lower the effective BA absorption % becomes for your entire cumulative gabapentin dose, etc.), you REALLY need to wait 7-10 days minimum between uses, for a maximum of 2-3 large doses per month.
You can get away with ignoring my advice for a few weeks or months, but if gabs alone do anything for you now, at this rate they definitely won't within ~3-6 months.
Just stick to gab megadosing one, maybe 2x/mo max (as a stand alone drug/experience or perhaps solely gabapentin+booze, or gabapentin+phenibut if you have previous experience with phenibut) and then take say an opioid 1-3x/mo (again, that's not French for 3 days in a row as a binge for that month, genuinely 7/10/14 days between uses) and combine a much smaller gab dose with your 1-3x/mo opioid usage and hypothetically, say, moderate dosage of benzo usage 1-3x/mo for synergizing effect (talking as little as ~300-900mg gabapentin, probably like 600mg two 300mg capsules taken ~30-45min apart, definitely 1g or less total, or even just 100-200mg if you had smaller gabapentin capsules).
That's always how I got it to work best for me. I'd do the tiny 200-1200mg doses here and there to boost opi or benz (usually benz if I was running low and the benz dose was kinda small, or if it's half as much pharma xanax as normal and I'd thrown in 1-2 lunesta or an ambien and a lunesta in together to compensate...gabapentin really helped synergize with that, possibly even potentiate, alongside 1-3 servings of booze...not that that's "safe" OD wise).
Then maybe once every 3-6 weeks, I'd stagger gabapentin all fucking day long, like a 100mg capsule every 10min (600mg/hr) until I'd reach like idk 1800mg, 2400mg, maybe even 3000-3600mg (remember, this approach with tiny 100mg capsules is WAY more efficient % BA wise than downing entire 600mg caps at once, so you may not achieve my results with similar mg doses), and I'd be totally wasted, trashed, like more motor skills impaired than I'd ever be on opi, benz, etc.
>My question is how do I use this recreationally without getting kicked in the balls by addiction and withdrawals?
It's not a guarantee you'll do it successfully, but proving to yourself and potentially to specific friends/peers that you can pre-plan a dosage session, wait 10-14 days, repeat said dosage session again, and achieve similar doses without having to raise your doses might be a good first start. Using daily days in a row is REALLY bad for the whole Delta FOSB aspect of brain wiring changes caused by psychoactive drug use. It's more complex than that, but for some of the Delta (change in) markets, they reach relatively speaking approaching top-tier levels within as little as ~3-4 days of daily use for multiple substances.
The guy who basically asked for a magic miracle in the /opi/ board version of your thread is thinking too short-term, not in the long run. One week on one week off, or one week on two weeks off etc., none of that bullshit is remotely functional (let alone actually effective pharmacology wise) for trying to keep the best of both worlds (maximized effects, lack of a need to raise dosage for the same effect, lack/minimizing of mental addiction/craving development, and lack of physical dependency/tolerance, etc.).
The closest you'll ever get to such a best of both worlds in the long-term, 2, 3, 5, 10+ year window, is to use once/via a pre-set dosaging total/frequency pattern on a specific day/on a day within a specific weekend or general time period, not using that drug or drug class as a whole for at least a full 10-14 days on average, and maximizing the different drug classes available by rotating in different options (e.g. cannabis 1-6x/mo, benzos 1-3x/mo, opi 1-3x/mo, gabapentinoids 1-3x/mo, dissociatives 0.5-1x/mo, psychedelics 0.33-1x/mo, etc., if you get craving too much opioid usage then perhaps you knock that existing 3x/mo of hard opis down to 2x/mo in exchange for adding 2, maybe 3 days max per mo of a good kratom dose, or kratom+kava kava both plainleaf no extract, etc., shit like that).
