    Hi I am curious about the effects of slamming meth as opposed to smoking it. Also what is the main rush of injecting?

    ahhh... Slamming meth is heaven sent. When swim first did it it felt like a rollercoaster rush. SWIM coughed and felt the heat wave from head to toe. Swim has a friend shoot her up and used to think of him has god. How can this feeling of pure bliss exsist outside of heaven? It mellows you out and it's like it sedates you for a bit. And leaves a chemical taste on your tongue. Smoking it has very little to no danger except the obvious. Slamming it is very dangerous and painful if you don't know what to do.

    sorry, submitted too early:) anyway, the effects are very different. The euphoria created is indescribable. It's like a wave of knowing that everything will be alright. Swim doesn't get high from smoking but smokes anyway bc it's easier. When swim does a shot, she's talkative and very friendly, she is otherwise quiet and obviously annoyed. But the come down can be very nasty. Swim recomends eating to help the ugly strung out feeling. When shooting it drink water often, your viens will hurt and feel weak.

    SWIM has IVed many substances, however he's only slammed meth a couple times. SWIM doesn't know if his shots may have not been large enough because he didn't get a 'rush' as he would with cocaine for example, but it is definitely a good high. Compared to smoking it is a little different, but only in the subtle nuances that an experienced user would notice. As far as which method would be SWIM's preferred, he'd have to say a little of both. Ideally he'd like to slam a decent sized banger directly before a good smoking sesh.

    SWIM also agrees with Lissa_rx's friend that it is a much more dangerous method of administration. It also hurts considerably more than any other substance SWIM has banged. SWIM is not trying to dissuade usage, but urges one to be gentle and steady with the needle tip and depress the plunger with ease. Hope this helps.

    This is a subject that is baffling the hell out of me. SWIM was an avid IV user about 5 years ago when he discovered that blissful euphoric and VERY VERY EROTIC blast from the needle. SWIM used the rig for about 1 year and ended up moving up north to where most people have never heard of the magic crystal before, and so subsequently had to quit using. SWIM was doing 2-5 blasts a day. each blast being a 10th to a quarter gram. (SWIM had to build up to this tolerence, as a .1g used to be enough to send SWIM flying for many hours).

    SWIM just got a package from SWIMs mother 2 days ago. Just a .5g (very pricy now-a-days, i might add) and promptly loaded up the needle with a .1g, longing, anticipating that beautiful heavenly feeling. But, to no avail. I experienced no rush, I didnt cough. I miss that cough. I didnt taste it, i miss that taste.

    Confused, I packed up a .2g. again. no rush.
    son of a bitch WTF is going on here? Now Im pissed. I loaded up the very last of the shiot. my last .2g Slammed it again. No rush at all.

    I dont know what is wrong with this stuff now adays but I got no rush. I slammed a half a gram in less than 1 hour. Shit. now im just really spun. That was 2 days ago, and not a wink of sleep in sight. I did all the usual stuff I do when im high off of slamming it. clean my house, fix that cabinet door....etc.

    the only reason i had the package sent to me was for that rush. I dont like not being able to sleep for a week. I just wanted that sexy euphoric rush. I also found that when i was intimate with my girlfriend I was very horny but it took much coaxing to get erect.

    I used to slam that stuff 5 years ago and get a hard on so strong i wanted to knock a hole in the wall and have sex with it.

    Nope. Not any more..... things just aint the way they used to be

    Im thinking maybe it has something to do with the stereo-isomers of the crystals. I think we are getting the less potent racemic meth, as opposed to the good old D-meth i think i was so fond of...

    any imput on this mystery would be appreciated

    SWIM loves that choking cough where it feels like your brain is having a minor seizure. :) She feels your pain when your disapointed and frustrated from a lame shot. That's happened to her(a very) few times. She think it's the potency of it. Swim and another buddy would throw down about .7-.8 and it would knock their socks off. But has recently noticed that other batches tend to be smoother and don't have that sexy feel good rush that one gets used to.

    Finding the balance is the key. Not enough and you won't even know you did any till you start talking someones head off. You do too much and you'll get super nauseous, dizzy and break into a cold sweat. But when you find that perfect quant, cough a little then your eyes go crossed for a sec you'll know you have just found a whole new drug. You will never forget that feeling.

    of course SWIY seems experienced in the intravenous realm, but SWIM must ask this. SWIY didnt miss the vein rite? if u did u would feel a hella burn that i feel you prolly already know about. SWIM did around half a .1g shot about 7 hours ago and definitely missed a lil bit, it burned worse than anything hes ever shot, and didnt get any rush. but then shot the second haf about 5-10 minutes later and got the satisfaction i was longing for(still not THAT much of a rush though).
    FYI - amphetamines in general arent SWIMs drug of choice. he just couldnt find any opiates/anything else at all. He would rather have opiates anytime, as long as its not too exp and enough to satisfy SWIM.

    First, these are SWIMS opinions, if u think SWIM is wrong. than please just correct me, although swim believes almost all of this rant is just personal opinions.
    part one of your question. smoked vs. intravenous
    smoked is the most short-lived way of ingesting. swim isnt sure anymore though because its been a while since he has smoked without shooting or having already shot something. smoking it also tends to have more negative side effects than other routes of administration. SWIM always feel more tweeked out, jaw moving everywhere, and just generally weirded out, bored, and jittery. before SWIM ventured to the needle he would almost always snort it. sometimes he would eat his stuff. he has smoked his fair share, but he hardly ever burned on his stash. preferred snorting.
    shooting meth does have a really good rush. for swim is accompanied with hours of anxiety/longing for that initial rush and actively doing a whole lot of nothing. (posting on DF, talking to everybody and their brother, cleaning, etc.)
    in short. SWIY would snort it unless swiy: have used a needle before, or are ready to keep using needles. cuz as soon as swiy uses a needle, swiy is gonna keep using it. SWIM has never heard of a one-time iv abuser

    Pumpkin added 34 Minutes and 23 Seconds later...

    SWIM doesnt recall ever coughing from slamming anything. If that is the case, SWIY prolly shot up some particles that shouldnt be in your iv preparation, as i heard the additives/contaminants that are banged end up in your lungs(ex. fillers in pills). im guessing that goes for anything that dont dissolve in your bloodstream. SWIM believes this only goes for iv use. if it was shot IM, then he thinks it would mostly stay in/around the muscle, rite? or would it maybe slowly get processed/breakdown? wouldn't it need to be metabolized to breakdown? i know we arent talking about a certain substance and that the type of chem can be a big factor, but for the sake of argument lets say its something like "magnesium stearate" which i believe is a common filler/ingredient in pills.

    Starting with ROA with longest lasting effect/least rush on the left, ending with ROA with strongest rush/least lasting effects generally speaking.

    Oral > Nasal > Rectal (not positive if this is a very common ROA with meth) > Inhalation > IM or SC injection (horrible, horrible idea for meth) > IV injection

    SWIM agrees with this information, and finds it referenced all the time throughout this forum and others.

    SWIM only has one thing to say about smoking methamphetamine when compared to other ROAs. Although he is high, he always tends to keep on smoking and smoking. This could lead a user to think that smoking is the ROA that has the least lasting effects. People's bodies can react differently than others on occasion, and two people can have totally different personal reactions/perceptions when taking the same substance.

    For some reason, swim always continue smoking just to see the clouds, regardless of whether swim wants to get higher or not.

    As far as duration of the high, swim honestly has no clue how long swim stays high for because swim can fall asleep on the stuff fairly easily. Swim used to have "bedtime bowls" until he realized that it was a complete waste to just fall asleep during swim's high, and swim might as well just wait until morning to get going again.

    Swim often considers shooting, but it seems like that might send swim straight to addict hell, and that's no where swim wants to go right now considering he just got his life pretty straightened out.

    Well addict hell is straight where it will send SWIY, believe SWIM. This has a largely to do with an individual's will power as well. To SWIM addiction is at least 90% mental and that's the part of the addiction that's hell.

    It's a hard habit to kick. I'm going on 5 months with no Tina but that needle going in and that rush.. it's a son of a bitch to kick and the cravings are always there but you gotta keep a strong mind set. Mind over matter.. it's not that easy.. but ugh everyone can do it

    JakeWilster added 1 Minutes and 0 Seconds later...

    Right now I'm doing my best to move forward and continue my day but that rush that you get after slamming it's haunting me every second and I don't know why today out of all the days when I am trying to focus on applying for places to find myself a job. It sucks man I hate this!

    back in the day (lol) my rattie girl used to get the 'speed oil' from some people who made bath-tub speed. this was an oily yellow/reddish liquid that they would inject.

    the rush she remembers was like breathing fire! she never tried shooting up any of the 'newer' speeds but much preferred snorting them to smoking which made her mouth and lungs feel weird.

    my rattie girl found that she had to move away from where she lived to get away from using speed since where she was living it was everywhere. for a few days she slept a lot and drank a lot of coffee and the coffee seemed to help actually it sort of 'took the place' of the speed if that makes sense.

    she still thinks about the old days speed oil fondly though ;)

    Yeah I used to get some pure Tina straight from the HA (( Hells Angels )). I used to do favors for them if I didn't have any cash and they'd stopped selling to me years ago cuz they were afraid I'd turn into something evil and didn't want me around it. It's crazy but also amazing that they cared so much about me and wanted something better for my life. I was a stubborn kid back then. About 16 or 17 years of age I believe and I just wanted the dope but man.. it's a lot better to stay off. It's just a son of a B*tch to think about that good ole rush you get from slamming AHHH hahaha addiction is a tough thang but we're all strong minded and eventually all of us can get off if we wanted to. I am happier not stressing so dang much about my batch getting smaller and smaller. It's been a rough 5 months but it seems to be getting easier. Just some days the devil attacks and it's hard to think about anything else. Reading books to playing the piano to coloring (( not kidding )) haha coloring kids books hahaha just to not think about slamming.. but you gotta do what you gotta do and besides it's hard having an addiction when you're in a serious relationship and your spouse has never done drugs or can relate to it. I love my girlfriend to death and I'm grateful because she's been there from day one! She's amazing!

    There is NO rush like the one you get from slamming coke. I love the.rush that methamphetamine provided because I could function shortly afterward. Not so with coke. Smoking meth is a good high if you are a seasoned smokers, and know how to get a good hit. And obviously with both methods its always good to have good dope, but the high from running it is unmatched.

    oh, i know just exactly what you're talking about. ewe. i hated it. really hated it. the whole not being able to get over the obbsession for that rush from slamming. i never want to go back there. I remeber feeling like just that obsession alone, that uncontrollable craving for the rush would never go away and i would never be able to have any control over it. i chased that rush, and looking back, i only got it the first few times, after that i was always chasing those first ones but couldnt quite find them. then god flipped a switch in my brain or something cause litterally one day that obsession for the needle was gone. i was clean for a while and have started using again. i have tried slamming it a couple times, but have bad reactions to it, or something. theres no obsession for the needle. it was the best "high" you can get and the worst demon you can take home

    Injecting meth is the most beautiful heavenly nirvana. The rush is fucking amazing. That 1 second rush. Its the best feeling in the world.
    (from my experience).

    Worst thing you'll ever do though. Far more addictive than smoking it. And injecting meth is dangerous and kills and shrinks your veins pretty fucking quick, the shits toxic as fuck.
