    How long did it take you guys before this was second nature? I am batting about 250-300 after about 100 swings?



    Often after he hits, when he moves the slightest bit to loosen the tie he looses the vein.



    Do people recommend pushing a needle all the way in?



    How bad is it if you're booting C and you come out of the vein but keep shooting?



    How many times will you use the same syringe under duress.



    Thanks-

    You should push the needle all the way in. Cocaine is known to cause
    abcesses and some nasty infections. You probably shouldn't skin pop it
    or miss your shot.



    Also, you should never you the same rig more than once, unless you HAVE </span>to.
    They actually get very dulled after one use, well it depends on the
    size needle gauge you are using. 27g - 30g recommended for IV. Reusing
    with a dull needle can cause and will cause vein damage.

    Yeah, I went by needle xchange today and they were closed so he's fucked til monday.



    He keep slosing the vien when he hits it and then unties. Should
    he stay in and try to get back in or pull out? Thoughts?



    If one goes thru skin and gets no vein, do they ever "root around" a bit to find one?



    Do most regular users always hit?



    Thanks-
