    No drip, means cocaine isn't reaching sinuses?

    SWIM was wondering if you don't get a drip after snorting a line of cola, does it mean it hasn't reached the sinuses and will have little/no effect?

    SWIM has never thought much of the effects of insuffulating cola, it only makes him talk a little more, feel less pissed, but no euphoria. Could this be the reason?

    Does the person have clogged sinuses? I'm not an expert on the nasal drip, but it is the nasal tissues that absorb the cocaine into the bloodstream -- I think the drip is just stuff that got through and it drips in the back of one's throat typically ending up in the stomach (someone please correct me if this is wrong). So, no drip doesn't necessarily mean no coke got into the nasal tissues -- perhaps it indicates that it was ALL absorbed by the nasal tissues... Maybe someone else can explain this, but I'm guessing the drip isn't directly related and represents the stuff that wasn't absorbed by the nasal tissues. Think about it though; it had to go somewhere -- did it come back out through the nose?

    Sounds like swiy thinks of it as a waste anyway, might advise to pass up the next 200 lines or so...

    Thanks for the reply. Nope the sinuses are not clogged at all when SWIM does sniff. SWIM has never got the really fucked up on stimulants like SWIMS friends, cola seems to have little effect, speed does keep SWIM awake but much else, and E does have good effects but his never been able to get as fucked up as his mates. Even crack doesn't have any real powerful effect on SWIM, at least not compared to others.

    It seems he has an unaturally high tolerance to stimulants. :(

    Every person is different and comparing how one feels to another is almost impossible. How does swiy know for sure how someone else feels? It might just be a different interpretation of the same feeling. And I'm not trying to be nitpicky, but it isn't unnatural -- there is no natural or normal, as every person is different, has different experiences, expectations, attitudes, etc.

    In my opinion swiy is in a potentially dangerous situation. Although some don't ever come to like the feeling or lack of feeling produced by using a given substance, most do get something out of it and feeling one has a high tolerance often leads to consumption of larger doses (and this is not a good idea). Some people risk a lot and pay a high price for that feeling, and while that may not seem worth the risk looking back, it is definitely not worth the risk for someone who doesn't even want the feeling.

    Cocaine, especially in the form of crack/rock, should not be underestimated as it has been known to sneak up on those who don't respect her power. SWIM started out feeling exactly as your post describes swiy -- a little crack here and there and swim would walk away thinking, "what's the big deal?" or "that's it?" or "why is everybody so jazzed when swim feels very little?", but that can change in a hurry as chasing someone else's high is a very dangerous thing (not to mention impossible to achieve).

    Has SWIKomodoMK tried rubbing it into his gums or keeping it under his tongue?

    SWIM is referring to visually as fucked as others and the general common effects almost everyone describes, however on the most part due to those reasons SWIM does not use substances much anymore and for sure does not chase the high. SWIM has a very good understanding of safer use and followed it on the most part when he used to indulge. However, SWIM does not have the same interest he used to because as all things, when done often, become the norm and as a product of that, more boring.

    In reply to SPWIM, yes SWIM has tried rubbing it on the gums but that is only a numbing effect, and SWIM has not put it under his tongue and wouldn't want to.

    swim has experienced similar effects corresponding to the drip, swim has recently gotten back into the habit after a 2 and a half month break and in most cases insuffilation leads to no drip and simply an increased heart rate with nasea. swim thinks that the statement pertaining to all the coke being absored so as there is no drip to possibly be an explanation since swim has not done coke in a while the sinus would easily absorb coke, where as when ya get back into it heavy the sinuses are probably not always clear equalling some product going to the throat, although swim is also curious about such a question, cuz if thers no drip where the hell has the coke gone???? in swims situation just kinda seems like it goes into a big hole inside the nose , but dunno.

    SWIM wants to know whether or not "drips" are good or bad. SWIM knows it might sound like a stupid question to lots of the users here, but he really needs to know.
    When it drips in your throat is it a waste or is it a good sign? What does it mean if it doesn't drip?
    please reply.

    Anything snorted into the nasal passages is eventually going to drip down the sinuses and into the throat (with smaller amounts going into the lungs). I guess you could say it's a sign that the person it happens to is tooting cola correctly (assuming their chopping skills & patience are up there as well).
    Uhhhm... just that it's likely the cola didn't end up in the right place. Aggressive tooting of large/not-well-chopped lines pretty much sucks the stuff straight down into the stomach, with minimal or zero nasal absorption. No benefits from snorting, cola is wasted bigtime.

    yea drips like to call it drain, if the stuff is choped up as fine as say sugar or flour even youll notice much less drain, not cuase its not there but because less of it is drained, the other stuff is still in your nose makin you feel good,
    1. chop it up good 2. chop it up again.

    as long as you didnt buy this stuff next to the opium ilse you should be okay...lol

    From the rules:

    • Use descriptive Topic Subject. This will help others find what they want to read. Topics with bad Topic subjects may be deleted! - there's nothing more annoying than looking at all those stupid "A stupid question" subject lines. I mean, I'm damn lazy, but how hard is it to type "A stupid question about (insert something here)"? As a rule of thumb, most thread titles should include the full name of the drug discussed.

    A rule many tend to forget will cause a mass of warnings soon...

    *Therefore title of thread changed to include drug name*

    Re: No cola drip, means cola isn't reaching sinuses?

    SWIM has noticed similiar stuff as well - years ago when SWIM first started dabbling, the drip was pronounced. Definately noticeable. The last few times however, (the past few dabbles over the course of a year or more), have produced very slight drips, or none at all. The feelings, overall, are pretty much the same, just no/little drip. SWIM kind of liked/likes the drips.
    Maybe it depends on the "strength" of ones snorting ability. A moderate sniff puts it where it needs to be, but one to hard pulls it higher up into the nasal cavatity, perhaps leading to more going down the throat? Maybe over time SWIM has become a better sniffer? A scientfic answer would be appreciated! :)

    Re: No cola drip, means cola isn't reaching sinuses?

    swim noticed that the drip at times hangs aorund somewhere for a while then hits them sooner or later. Its been happening more lately, but at times the sinuses are so clear and perfect there is no drip but a great effect.

    In SWIM's experience, she told me whenever she got a good drip, the coke seemed to have more of an effect.. as in it was working better. When her nose felt clogged or was sort of messed up from the night before, she didn't get a drip and didn't feel the effects as much.

    Swim feels much better after the drip, with teary eyes too, but with no drip, some still gets in. That's why Swiy should blow their nose of all their snot or whatever beforehand, have a nice clear nasal passasge.

    Drip Problems???

    So a very good friend of mine named Bob (for hypothetical reasons) is a weekly to monthly cocaine user. Lately Bob has been doing lines that have very little drip. Bob and I dont understand why this is happening? To hard of a snort? Not hard enough? Bob has clear nostrills, good supply, and only recently did the drip become a smaller or almost absent drip. Bob highly enjoys the drip and would like it back.

    - Any Tips or Advice is welcomed!!! Thanks... new to the forum....

    Re: Drip Problems???

    SWIM finds SWIY's post a bit muddled but he'll assume SWIY is speaking of drainage when he says "drip". SWIY should take into consideration that cocaine can work as a local anesthetic and can be very numbing to the nasal passages and throat. So, maybe there is drainage...and SWIY just can't feel it.:s

    Re: Drip Problems???

    Some cocaine drips, some doesn't. It really depends on what it's been cut with and how finely it's been chopped-up.

    Note that feeling a drip isn't necessarily a good thing, as it's inside the nasal lining and the sinuses where most of the absorption takes place. If the drug is in SWIY's throat then it is likely to be swallowed and the oral bioavailability of cocaine is low.

    Re: Drip Problems???

    As others have said not noticing it may be a good thing. SWIM would much rather not have a drip, this way I know it's getting absorbed to a much higher degree. :)
