    Swim spotted a bit of blood on the paper tube he was using to snort his Ritalin. He's taken it as a sign to stop snorting the stuff and take it orally like it was prescribed. Is a nosebleed an indication of minor damage or could it be something more serious? Swim only spotted the blood on the paper he couldn't find any blood when he blew his nose but either way a bit of blood is an indication that the stuff is doing damage in his nasal cavity so thats the last time he does it.

    Anyone else had a nosebleed from snorting chemicals? If Ritalin can do it then people who snort coke every now and then must get the odd nose bleed. Swims never heard of it happen to anyone with coke but his friend got a nose bleed after snorting a line of MDMA once.

    Red Rock has gotten nose bleeds from snorting methylphenidate and Adderall before. The most serious nosebleed he had was after he snorted 2c-e. This nosebleed just would not stop for about 30 minutes and it was gushing blood unlike the other nosebleeds that if you just plug up the nose it stops. Red Rock had thought he had done serious damage but he hasn't had any problems since then which has been several months now

    SWIM's gotten nosebleeds from the odd multi day binges, he's always just stopped sniffing and he'd be fine. I highly doubt it's anything serious.

    According to swimmy that happend because swimmy did not cut the ritalin enough down to powder leaving large chunks left stuck in the mucus membrance, when swimmy bought a pillcrusher the nosebleeds stoped.

    SWIM's always assumed that nosebleeds are caused from the membrane being corroded by the material being snorted. If a chunk was snorted then it would all eat away in one small location and be easier to eat away deep enough to cause bleeding. So that would make sense. But at the same time, the finer the powder, the more that will make it's way into the lungs. So either SWIY can hurt their lungs or hurt their nose.

    That swimmy fellow needs to learn not to snort 2 hard because then the powder will get in his lungs causing nasty coughs and slime. Swimmy should not snort the goodness so hard because if swimmy snorts its moderatly it wont go in the lungs. ;) I heard from swimmy when that he used to sniff the ritalin 2 hard and got the junk in his swimmys poor lungs and he coughed constatly slime like he had berculisis or something. If that happends swimmy talked about not sniffing for a week and letting the lungs clear themself

    ;)

    Even if SWIM doesn't snort too hard, fine powder will still make it into the lungs. Just like how you can blow flour into the air and small particulars will float around, very fine powder being snort will be able to float into one's lungs regardless of how hard they snort. Because with each breathe some of those extra fine particles will be picked up and possible go into the lungs.

    SWIM always snorts as softly as possible though. Snorting hard makes more material drip down the throat. If SWIM wanted it all down his throat he'd eat it instead.

    One word, don't snort. Fucks up the nose.

    Swim uses a mortar and pestle but he gets lazy sometimes and settles for chunky lines and although he's never had nose bleeds from snorting chunky lines he has had some slight asthma as a result. Phlem usually builds up in his lungs and when he coughs it up sure enough there the chunks are. The lungs know how to deal with chunks of Ritalin :thumbsup:

    HorseBucket added 4 Minutes and 7 Seconds later...

    Thats two words but swim agrees with swiy. Snorting isn't swims preferred method of ingestion. Smoking drugs is the way swim does it given the choice but even if he had pure methylphenidate hes not sure if its a smokeable drug.

    Outta curiosity is hollow hippy a discrete way of saying holy hippy? One night swim was on psychedelics and he was under the impression that he'd stumbled upon a divine revelation that the word holy actually means hollow and that to be holy means to be hollow. Made lots of sense at the time. To be honest it still does make some sense in a mystical kind of way. Maybe to be holy one has to free himself of all internal bullshit and be hollow.
