    I am having issues injecting, Swim never seems to be able to get a vein and when I do the needle doesn't stay in it long enough. I have good veins as doesn't inject much but the last few weeks I was getting a friend to hit him up but now there clean so its a no can do any more.

    Has anyone got any tips for people that find it challenging, Swim can do all the prep just not hit the veins at the moment.

    TK, maybe someone up above is telling You not to bother dabbling with the pin?!

    Quit while You is ahead, Swim recalls that swiy's preferred ROA was through chasig the dragon and that You was self detoxing, and now You is posting this thread.. they say it always leads to the needle afterall..

    sorry to see.

    I am sure someone will be able to offer up some advice.

    Play safe.

    To be honest, swim's pretty sure that all the possible info you could want is available in the above stated thread, and a few other similar threads.

    Think long and hard about it though, as when you can inject by yourself, you'll never smoke again... And it really doesn't take long for veins to collapse, your hands to get numb, your circulation to get fuckered.

    Then comes the point whereby it's no longer easy to find a vein, so you've got to repeatedly stab yourself, blood pouring down your arm. Obviously, misses become inevitable, as do abscesses. - and they're fuckin manky.
    Places you'd never have dreamed of injecting in before will suddenly appear very attractive sites. It's amazing how much easier it is to shoot up in your groin when you're desperate and you can't find a vein anywhere else....

    And your tolerance will be waaaaaay higher, you'll be spending waaaaaaaay more, and getting waaaaaay less high.

    Not trying to put You down at all, just trying to stop him from fucking himself. As no-one doesn't regret switching from smoking to shooting.

    Check the angle of insertion. A common mistake is going through the vein, rather than into it. The best advice has already been given, though. Don't go that way.

    Although I agree injecting should not be the way to go and stay away if possible but swim injects both H and coke and not one vein has collapsed so i wouldnt worry bout the vein collapsing even after a year or 2 of use, I recommend using brand news ones after the 3 or 4th time or so and switch up the areas as much as possible

    ^^Switching entry points is definitely wise. But I would have to say a brand new rig every day (if not every time) is a small price to pay for vascular integrity (IE every time pin is used it gets somewhat dulled). Like insurance.
