www.erowid.com & go to plants and drugs? i think. K?
thats ten times worse for you then heroin, sometimes i will shoot up to 50 times a night on coke, my arms will look like pulp. heroin is liek once a day.
Thanks... Yeah, I have visited Erowid, and none of these questions were answered for me, after looking over the site, which is why I was hoping for more info from someone here.
As for choosing heroin over coke-- I choose not to use opiates, as I am much more likely to get hooked on them than coke, whether my arms get messed up more by coke or not. (After 3 days of shooting, my arms are pretty ragged, but I keep them really clean and use arnica on them to help with bruising and swelling. I always give them a nice long break to heal before using again. Actually, the number of times I shoot up when using coke is one thing that keeps me from being a daily user-- I run out of places to hit veins safely.)
well, cocaine does alot of damge to your viens. within a few eyars time it can destroy most viens. when i went into the ER recently they took an hour to find a vien.
it is simply too addictive. i neevr shoot iore the four times. you might as well smoke rock, it is less harmful actually.
I do know that it can really fuck up my veins, so I've stepped off that particular train for a little while until I can go back to using it recreationally again (I saw that I was getting really hooked) & give my veins some time to heal. As for smoking it-- my main interest is in shooting up, not just the high, so it isn't something I would do....
last night i shot a few grams and i did love it, but it was to hard to stop. 80 bucks a night is shit, you know.
if you do it more thne one night a week then youll get hooked. you shiould try heroin, its not how people think it is. i have done it for 2 years and never every day, never had a trainspotting liek withdrawl either.
yow, 80 bucks for a few grams?!? lucky you! if it was that cheap around here, i would do it every day (ha ha). good thing i'm too poor to do that......
as for H-- well, when i had access to morphine, i DID do it everyday (until my friend dying of cancer w/unlimited supply of M died), and have little doubt that i would do the same w/H. and having just seen my best friend go through a nasty withdrawal from it (never saw trainspotting, but this was bad), i don't really want to tempt fate. i just kicked klonopin and it really sucked. and whether it is not always like people think it is, my 5 closest friends are current, trying to kick, or recovering junkies-- and i saw what happened to their lives.... (and yes, i know what coke can do to people-- two of my sibs and both of my parents were pretty hardcore cokeheads, and another sib was a crackhead.... i'm not kidding myself that as an addict, whatever drug i do too much of can hook me...) thanks for your input though-- when i think of how much cheaper it is, and how very much i love opiates, H sounds quite appealing.
i have a good dealer and i get pure coke for 40-50 a gram, btu i only shoot 3 times a week at most.
its only because im sort of a desparado in the drug scene here so i get good prices, but i ahve no job thats why 80 bucks isnt cheaop for me.
i withdrawled hrorribely for 3 weeks, but it was worth it. as long as you watch your shit and keep some kpin around when you have no dope its fine.
try speedballing, and youll know true godly pleasure
Hi-- Nope, snorting it never did a damned thing for me. I really like using needles, and like the way coke makes me feel when I shoot it.
However, after months of responsible usage, I went overboard and nearly OD'd on it last week after a five day binge on nearly pure coke... Uh, so yeah, I've decided to become sober, at least for awhile, because there are some people more important to me than ANYTHING else, and they would really hate to see me die...................... Not that I would particularly care....
Danger of overdosing on Coke? Heart palpiations, possibly coronary problems(heart attack possibly).
Klonopin will not help a Coke OD, unless it's a very small OD.
The best idea that will help you not OD, is to be careful with the amount you do. Always do a small amount of a new batch to test it's potency. Always wait at least an hour before you do another shot(I can't believe the people who IV every 5 minutes with the stuff).
I don't cook the coke either, hell I don't even cook Heroin(the tar I get dissolves fine in water although it takes about 30 seconds of stirring). The stuff that gets stuck on the cotton is in fact filler crap that you don't want in your veins, and if you see that much filler than you are getting a bad cut. THe first coke I injected was like that, but when I found a better source, I couldn't see any cut at all when I mixed it with water. It completely dissolved.
The cotton does filter out all the impurities in the coke. It's very important. It also filters out the cut from coke, at least most of it. Sometimes some of the cut is water dissolvable.
Also, DO NOT COMBINE OLD COTTONS AND ADD WATER TO THEM TO USE FOR INJECTION. Sure plenty of people do this, and I can understand it from Heroin users when they run out, but the fact is, cotton fever, which is horrible... comes from doing this. It's not from cotton fibers that get caught in the needle and that go into your bloodstream. It's from old cotton that you have already used to shoot up with, that collects bacteria. So when you take old cottons and re-use them, you're chancing cotton fever.. which is not deadly, but you will feel like you're dying. It's fucking horrible and I would never wish it upon my worst enemies.
Re-using cottons is not worth it and remember to use a small amount of a new batch to test the purity. I hope I answered your questions fully. If you want anything else explained, just ask me and i'll help you as much as I can.
The funny thing is, coke does nothing to me without Heroin added to it. I've smoked tons of crack, injected huge amounts of coke by itself and i've felt nothing. Nothing at all. But a good speedball I can feel. Strange eh? Some other people have the same problem as me.
Thanks so much-- I really appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions...
I don't reuse cottons any more (I've taken to popping them under my tongue when I am about to take a hit so that I am not tempted tp use them again-- that way I still get to use the residual coke without sticking it in my vein), and I always always always try a small hit before using more of ANY batch, even if it is supposedly from the same source...
Have a great day....
No problem, helping people with using drugs safely is something I love to do. From what you've said, it looks like you're now doing a very good job of being careful. Keep it up and you'll never have to worry about an overdose. Good job, it's people that throw off these kinds of precautions and OD that give people like us bad reputations. I'm glad I could help
valium saved my girlfriends life when she was seizuring on coke.
That's very good fallen one. I didn't say that benzodiazepines couldn't help Cocaine OD's, just that in severe OD's they can't really help much in most cases. In mild and moderate OD's they can be lifesavers by slowing down the heart rate and blood pressure.
