    So lately I've noticed that after smoking ice, my mucous had been turning a wierd yellow/amber color. Its almost like the occasional color if the ice while I'm smoking it. Its really thick, more lkme phlegm than normal saliva and it takes a bit of effort to draw it from my throat. Just wondering if this is a cause for concern or if its normal. If it is something to be worried about, any ideas on whats causing it?

    The smoke tends to coat your mouth and nasal passage, The Dr noticed when he spit in his garage, after it dried up it left an exact "crackback pattern" just how it looks in his pipe. He has also blown his nose and once saw a dry booger that looked the same way. A thin glass flake with streaks or cracks in it.
    Disgusting but weird.
    Drink a lot of water & it helps the problem tremendously. Oral hygiene is equally important.

    Nothing to worry about, though.

    Yes, I have the exact same thing. A nasty thick phlegm that is difficult to cough up. Mine has gotten worse to the point its difficult to take a deep breath without coughing. Now I have a chronic cough and difficulty breathing.

    It turns out I had been smoking some bad meth that was cut all to hell. I never called that guy again and got a new dealer with much better gear. Methamphetamine won't do this, it is highly water soluble and the natural moisture in your lungs is probably enough to dissolve it well.

    The cut is a different matter though. Good meth should not make the stem of your pipe look like its coated with a thick layer of white chalk dust. I think that's what the inside of my lungs look like. LOL

    Recently I researched how to clean or wash my meth. I have been unable to find high quality meth that's not cut. Just a simple acetone wash works quite well and can make a big difference. I would HATE to get lung damage from this shit, and I'm sure you would to. I suggest you do the same and check out cleaning threads on DF. If you have trouble finding them, PM me and I'll send it to you.

    Ah so it might be a cut in the meth. Right now I'm using tinfoil and a straw to smoke it, but when I melt the crystal for the first time, should I not be inhaling the first few clouds of smoke that are produced? I always had the assumption that what was melting off at first was all the cut and after a few seconds, then you were actually getting the meth. :p

    Yes do not want to smoke the initial smoke produced by melting the crystals once you have melted them then you can start smoking. I would also suggest getting an "oil burner" or a meth pipe which is way better than using foil both health wise and efficiency wise. As for the strange colored mucus I do not experience this because I brush my teeth or atleast rinse my mouth with water every time i smoke. I would highly advise rinsing your mouth out or if possible brushing your teeth every time you smoke, this will solve your strange colored mucus and so give you a better chance at fighting meth mouth( another great way is staying hydrated which is the main cause of meth mouth)

    Schvrooom added 1 Minutes and 39 Seconds later...

    Addition to post above - brushing or rinsing after every use should take care of that mucus problem.

    That could help Schvrooom but it may not fix everything from smoking it.
    Perhaps this might suit the ROA of smoking and the reasons you see the mucus after days of smoking anything tobacco related or vap chemicals.

    When I smoked I would have similar. And it went a step further, there were times that I would get a weird color in my vision. Looked in the mirror to find this odd colored mucous was actually forming in my eye as well. I know everything is connected but I had never experienced anything like that in my life. I thought maybe it had to do with the smoke actually hitting my eyes or something so I took a break from smoking and started parachuting and it still happened!

    Haven't had this occur since I started IVing although I do a lot less & a lot less often and have a completely different connection now.

    I keep getting the really thick mucous lately also. My roa is injecting and yet I am dealing with the nasty too. It gets so thick, that it gets stuck and I feel like I'm choking a little bit. Very weird.
