How To Prepare A Needle: Meth (Safe Injecting)

After tons of requests for a video on how to prepare a needle, I have finally made one. I hope you guys enjoy! I do not promote the use of illicit drugs. Please be safe and responsible. Please read my disclaimer. Click here to submit video requests. For further inquiry, click here

For written information on how to prepare a needle, I have detailed, step by step instructions that contain tips + pointers + safe injection practices, as well as instructions on how to prepare a needle with meth, heroin, or morphine. Here you can read about Safe Injecting: How to Register a Needle. If you are unsure how to safely administer your shots, get help. Everyone starts somewhere. Most importantly, do not share needles with anyone. It is not safe.

Follow the 3-Poke Rule or 1 and Done Rule: Once you have used a needle 3 times, dispose of it. Open a new one. 1 and done, meaning 1 use and then dispose of it. It’s safest to open a new sharp for every use because needles begin to dull after even a single poke.

Tools for sterile needle preparation:
sterile syringe, tourniquet, sterile water, sterile alcohol wipes, sterile bandaids, sterile spoon (cooker/stericup), cottons, biohazard disposal.
_______________________________________________________________________
- Measure out the amount of crystal and put it in in your spoon (or stericup).
Add roughly 20-30cc of water.
- Cook the crystal in the water until it just begins to bubble.
- Stir the shards in the warm water until they have all dissolved. Meth is water soluble.
- *optional: Add 5-10cc’s (or one drop) of cold water to cool down the liquid.
- Place a cotton ball in the center of the liquid.
- Make sure the “eye of the needle” (the side of the needle point that has the hole) is facing down, pressing against the cotton.
- Begin to pull the plunger back slowly at a 45° angle and the liquid will begin to pour in.
- Once that has finished, flip the needle around with the tip facing the ceiling.
- If there are remaining air bubbles, gently shake or flick the barrel until they are gone.
- Slowly push the plunger to the top of the barrel. There should be no space.
- Wipe the tip of the syringe off before you shoot. Most of the time there is residue that is left on top – that is the only reason doing a shot of meth should burn.

Conversations with my student’s clinical instructor

I have a student working with me for a bit as a part of their final clinical. We were going through their mid term evaluation with their clinical instructor, going through areas of strength and weaknesses and such. The clinical instructor then asked me if I had any concerns or areas that I wanted to see improved. 

Now, keep in mind, this student is in the same program that I was in almost three years ago. Many of the same clinical instructors and class instructors. However, there’s clearly been a big change. My student, who is in her final clinical, didn’t seem to have any idea as to how to draw up medications and other skills that I (and my fellow students, a few of whom work on my unit) were expected to master, if at the very least be able to talk through. Like, how do you go through your entire clinical and have no idea as to how a Foley is inserted? why a patient would need a Foley? How to draw up medications (IV, SQ)? How to safely administer injectable things like insulin without stabbing yourself. 

When I voiced this concern  (which is a concern not only of mine but of other preceptors on the unit), the clinical instructor looked at me like I had ten heads and told me that my concerns would be taken into account but that as a whole the program was focusing more on clinical judgement and nursing process and less on skills. Per the instructor, they were more concerned that the student knows why the patient is getting an antibiotic versus how to reconstitute or draw up the medication. 

I’m sorry, what? Don’t get me wrong, I understand where this lady is coming from – technique comes with practice and with time and knowledge base will help with that. But don’t give me that shit. I just graduated 3 years ago and it’s amazing how low your standards have dropped. I was expected to know those skills as were all of my classmates and if you didn’t, you got sent to the skills lab and/or were flunked from your clinical. I get that different clinical sites allow different things, but you have to provide your students with an idea of how to do things. You’re doing them a complete disservice by just passing them along with bare bones “knowledge” and no practical skills. And again, I’m not talking specialized skills  that you’ll see once in your life. I’m talking drawing up medications, administering medications, inserting/managing IVs, straight cathing/placing Foleys, even suctioning. Are we that desperate for nurses that we’re passing people who have absolutely no idea what the hell they are doing just to fill positions? 

Really friggin mind-blowing.

If Godzilla was ever reintroduced to the Marvel universe how would you do it?

I’d probably loosely adapt my half-formed idea of a Godzilla reboot - that all the monsters were secretly captured and divided between the nations decades ago as a defacto nuclear pact of mutually-assured-destruction should any country unleashing one of the monsters on any of the others, until Godzilla breaks free and the world learns anew the folly of holding a knife to its own throat. It’s up to the Marvel heroes to stop him and Mothra and the rest…and they of course fail horrifically. He dunks on them like a basketball.

Yes, Hercules may make his bread and butter on monster-fighting, but he’s never warred against THE KING OF ALL MONSTERS before. Godzilla’s stood up to J. Jonah Jameson for god’s sake, Thor and Hulk and the rest are hardly going to last in the face of that, especially with the Fantastic Four out of the picture and therefore not being able to throw Ben Grimm at him.

No. There is only one hero…one champion…one MONSTER…that can save the world now.

AMERICAN KAIJU!!!!!!!!!!

Once Corporal Todd Ziller - aka “Marine Todd” of the chain email where he punches out the atheist college professor daring God to strike him down, saying he’s too busy keeping America safe - he was injected by General Maverick with a cocktail of super-soldier serum, gamma radiation, mutant growth hormone, Pym Particles, and Curt Connor’s Lizard formula, and once the USA airbrushed his chest like the side of a van, he became that skyscraped-sized defender of liberty, American got-dang Kaiju. Only Al Ewing’s greatest, likely most alcohol-inspired creation can save us now.

Even he ultimately isn’t enough in a head-to-head confrontation (if only because having an American parody of Japan’s embodiment of the horrors of nuclear war we visited on them win that fight maybe wouldn’t be the best look), but his sheer determination strikes at the long-buried soul of the King of All Monsters, reawakening his desire to protect the world. This spins off into a Godzilla/American Kaiju buddy cop partner (and with time, perhaps…more?) series by Al Ewing, with American Kaiju as the cocky young upstart who needs to learn to chill, and Godzilla as the seasoned vet of atomic monster-fighting who’s too old for this shit, but has a secret softy side where he goes to a community center every weekend to teach underprivileged children to play basketball. Even as the rest of the comic book industry and indeed perhaps human civilization falls, ongoing publication of this title will continue unabated. 

We as anarchists need to start getting organized. Like, a lot of us are involved in various disparate groups (FNB, antifa, a local housing collective, a clinic or safe injection site, a DIY space, Black Rose, the IWW, maybe a left-wing gun club), but I feel like at this point we really need to coalesce into a more cohesive group. We need to federate under one name, even as our groups maintain their autonomy and new ones spring up, if we’re going to present an effective force for anarchism.

Like, the anarchists in Spain were all CNT-FAI, the anarchists in Ukraine were all Black Army, the anarchists in Chiapas were all EZLN, and the anarchists in Rojava are all YPG. We (western anarchists) need to be organizing similarly.

damn, Fiona Patten of the Reason Party (formerly Sex Party) has pushed for a ton of good stuff in Victoria, including drug law reform, safe injecting rooms, legalising vaping, legalising Uber, euthanasia, and managed to pass a law banning harassment outside abortion clinics:

A bill introduced by Sex Party MP Fiona Patten last year made it illegal for anti-abortion protesters to harass or film people coming or going from abortion clinics, with heavy penalties for those who break the law.

“I went to the clinic today and was very pleasantly surprised that people were adhering to the new regulations,” Ms Patten said. “I saw patients accessing and exiting the clinic freely and without being morally judged by protesters. It’s very pleasing to see the law working and that finally the rights of the patients will be respected.”

a politician with sensible policy proposals who might actually get things done!

I feel my cynicism melting

anonymous asked:

When someone starts T injections, are they allowed to choose where they want the injection site to be? (thigh, hip etc)

Charlie says:

technically, I think yes if you ask about it, but most people are started in the thigh that I know of.  Once you get very experienced giving shots I don’t feel like there’s harm in switching it up and transferring to your butt etc, but this really depends on your body type and if the site of injection is safe/has enough fat.  I’m telling you this based on what my friends say about their testosterone and about my friend who’s a nurse and very knowledgeable on giving injections, however we don’t claim to be medical experts on this blog and I would really recommend asking your doctor if you get on T before injecting anything anywhere.

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #80

“You know John, boys will be boys!”

That’s what Bobby told my Dad one day when Dean and I were fooling around in the middle of the piles of scrap metal and tires of Singer Salvage, playing cops and robbers, scampering over the carcasses of old Cadillacs and Chevys. Our father thought we were a bit too noisy for his taste and were preventing him from focusing on an important case but our favorite uncle (and the only one we ever knew) came to the rescue to remind John Winchester that his sons were kids and also, that’s what brothers do when they’re together: scream, laugh, play, imagine they are Indiana Jones, Han Solo or Captain America fighting evil, chasing each other with an axe and a knife in order to slit each other’s throats.

Is the new Streeler-infused ink safe for you?

We can all remember the glee of every young student after learning the sticking charms in Professor Flitwick’s class when we realized that our favorite picture of the Weird Sisters could be stuck onto our skin. While none of us ever dared a permanent sticking charm, the small act of rebellion felt like an enormous victory!

Through tattoos are still mainly the domain of the young, they have progressed far beyond the simple charms of the Tattoo Artist hut in Diagon Alley. The former method of charming designs onto the skin retained the immobile design of muggle tattooing, but at least without the pain inherent in those techniques. Given the elasticity of magic and breadth of magical knowledge at St. Mungos, even these simple tattoos remained relatively non-permanent.

However, a new form of magical tattooing has sprung up – and with it ours and the rest of the wizarding world’s breath has been taken away. This new form mirrors the muggle techniques in that it injects a colourful potion into the skin to create the artwork onto the witch or wizard I question.

By imbuing the person with the potion, the design takes on similar qualities to magical photographs and artworks – allowing the design to move and take life on top of the witch of wizard wearing it. Boundaries are charmed into the skin to keep artwork from wandering into unsavory areas at inopportune times.

While the draw from this astounding dermal design is taking hold across the nation, it is in the potion that many find concern. The colourful potion is brewed by drawing Streeler venom at each hour when the large snail native to Africa changes colours. By using a colour pigment imbued with magic, this allows the magical properties of the artwork to blossom on the skin of the witch or wizard that has chosen it. However, how safe is it to inject deadly Streeler venom into your skin?

So far, there have been 7 deaths and over 32 injuries from incorrect brewing and use of the potion. Most of this has been from inexperienced and backdoor tattoo parlours incorrectly brewing the potion. One of the deaths resulted from a tattoo artist accidentally ingesting the venom directly during the brewing process.

We have yet to see how these new tattoos hold up in the long run, but at the moment, the results – though dangerous – are incredible. The wizarding pop star Zavander Smith brought this new trend to the forefront of the fashion scene in his appearance last autumn at Glasgow stage for his first tour appearance for his new album. We have seen jaw-dropping works that ripple like watercolours and dragons that breathe raging fire (although unfortunately, Mr. Harry Potter’s Hungarian Horntail tattoo has yet to be confirmed).

Though tattoos saw a marked decline after the second wizarding war as many associated them with Death Eaters, the heart of art – to inspire love and beauty and to push the mind – has shown through with this fantastic new developing tattoo practice. If you are interested in getting tattoos of your own Witch Weekly encourages you to always use a licensed artist. And please do send us pictures of your body art!

Shooting up help. So, I have pretty good veins, however, I suck at hitting myself. I poke myslef a million times even when I give my veins a rest. I can feel them and kind of see them, but I still slip out. I use a tie and everything, but I rarely rotate which is bad, but there's one that always hit. It's hard for me to hit other veins on my arms. Any advice, so I don't lose the shot completely.

Story of my life. 

For information on how to properly hit a vein, which contains tips and pointers for proper, safe shooting techniques, check out my Harm Reduction page under “Safe Injecting 101″.

I used to rotate my veins frequently, but it’s much harder to that now due to most of my spots being over-used,  too much scar-tissue, or just not cooperating because they are in the process of healing. I have never collapsed a vein, thankfully.
Even when you use a tie, sometimes it just isn’t enough. Veins are very picky and there are a few things I would recommend to raise the visibility of them. I found a very good article that I’m going to share with you guys. The article can be found by clicking here.

Many people believe that slapping a vein produces blood flow, thus making them more visible. That is a myth. Instead of slapping you should gently palpate a vein. Here’s how:

  • Find the vein.
  • Put a finger on it and keep the finger on it.
  • Gently start pressing up and down with a slight bouncing action.
  • After about 20-30 seconds you should notice the vein has expanded slightly.

Gravity is also your friend. Try laying down on a flat surface, such as a bed or a couch, and have your arm you plan on injecting in hanging over the edge, lower than your body. That will increase the amount of blood flow in your arm and your veins will appear bigger. 

Another method that works with gravity is to swing your arm around like a windmill for roughy 30 seconds. The force on your arm means blood will have made it’s way in but won’t have an easy time getting out.

You should be confident in knowing these techniques will work; that is key. A lot of injecting is based on your mindset while going in to administer your shot and it is important to be confident in your abilities, especially after using these methods to produce blood flow. If any of these do not work for you, please do some further research online from reputable sources. There is tons of good information out there.
I know IDU can be tricky sometimes, as can registering a vein, but it is possible. If you are really struggling and nothing seems to be working, there is always another option. I would recommend putting all of the liquid from your syringe in a capsule and swallowing it. Yes, even if it has blood in it. This way you won’t be wasting your shot and you will still get the substance in your body orally, rather than intravenously. Another option is also plugging it (administering it rectally). Plugging is a good alternative to IV use and is much less risky.

  • Meth - Bioavailability (highest to lowest) (s)

Intravenous (100% ) > Rectal (99% ) > Smoked (90.3% ) > Nasal (79% ) > Oral (62.7% )

  • Heroin - Bioavailibility (highest to lowest) (s)

Intravenous (100%) > Intramuscular (85%) > Rectal (55%) > Nasal (44%) > Oral (35%)

  • Meth - ROA Onset (fastest to slowest) (s)

Intravenous > Smoking (vaporizing) > Rectal > Nasal > Oral

  • Heroin - ROA Onset (fastest to slowest) (s)

Smoked > Intravenous > Nasal

I find it funny how many people don’t get that Mettaton calling Dr Alphys “brilliant” and his constant praising of her abilities wasn’t genuine. It was part of the act, Mettaton constantly had to improvise to keep the “show” going. When Alphys stutters and can’t remember her lines Mettaton will step in and say how she will use her superb hacking abilities. Mettaton saves the day when Alphys messes up and says souls shouldn’t be use in a recipe incase someone is vegan, when the main ingredients already introduced include milk and eggs. Mettaton says it’s a brilliant idea quickly and goes with it.

The whole point of the act is to make Frisk think Alphys is a hero, it’s for her self esteem and so she can feel like she is part of the adventure. Mettaton is acting, and gets ticked off whenever Alphys ruins his show, such as when he asks the unplanned question about who she has a crush on when she points out the answers to you during the quiz, ruining the suspense and cheating. He also gets upset when the suspense is ruined because there is no real threat and sets up his own plot twist.

Mettaton tells you his real opinion of what Alphys is doing when you meet him in the core while he is off the air, before the battle. Mettaton explains how she orchestrated all this so she could “save the day” and feel like a hero and make you think she is such a great friend that you don’t want to leave her. She put you in real danger when she realized that the Core was not following the script, that actual mercenaries were attacking you, and that the danger was no longer controlled. She still kept the act up and kept pushing you to continue. She had no clue if you would actually destroy Mettaton believing that he is just a replaceable robot like she was pretending he was.

In the “Mettaton is the ruler” ending, you find out that Mettaton felt bad for how he treated Alphys and that he wasn’t the greatest of friends, which is understandable seeing as Alphys was claiming she created a robot with a soul and made Mettatons soul, and how she basically held his promised final body hostage by not completing it because she was afraid he wouldn’t need her anymore and would stop being her friend, resulting in Mettaton sweeping his bangs over the unfinished half of his face and using the body when it wasn’t finished, resulting in the limbs falling off because it hadn’t been tested or properly finished. Mettaton is friends with Alphys, but they have had a tumultuous relationship. He does express grief and regret at her disappearance which is strongly hinted as being suicide.

In the genocide route, the narration/ Chara is not praising Alphys when the check text for Mettaton Neo is “Dr. Alphys greatest invention”, it’s mocking her because Mettaton Neo was supposed to be a human destroying mode to impress Asgore, and in that mode he can’t even attack and dies on the first hit no matter how weak you attack. Even her greatest invention backfires.


She is good at programming and mechanical engineering, but because she doesn’t properly test or think things through or err on the side of caution with safety settings, she ends up creating and doing a lot of horrible things. This is why the scientific method and understanding science is so important, it doesn’t matter how skilled you are at inventing and building, if you don’t research and follow the method and regulations you’ll end up hurting yourself or others. It’s why in lab we have so many safety protocol and checks and why you have to know what you are doing and do tests to make sure it’s safe before you start injecting stuff or releasing it out of quarantine.

How To Prepare A Needle: Meth (Safe Injecting)

After tons of requests for a video on how to prepare a needle, I have finally made one! Please excuse my hand. I tore my flexor tendon in my finger and have surgery coming up this Monday to get it fixed. Despite my injury, I still have a good range of motion and was able to make this video. I hope you guys enjoy! Click here to submit video requests.

No Where to Hide

Anon requested: I wanted to request maybe a 2k12 Parasitica!Donnie?

*Rubs hands together* I had a lot of fun with this one! Enjoy!

~~~

You have never been more scared in your whole entire life.

Sure, it was scary when those Purple Dragon thugs jumped you, it was scary when you were captured by the Kraang, and it was scary when you almost killed by Shredder.

But you had been saved by the turtles all those times.

This time, you had to save yourself from the turtles.

You had told Donnie you thought Leo was acting weird after he had been stung by that bug. You had told Donnie to keep an eye on him. But did Donnie listen? The answer was no. He, Mikey, and Raph just shrugged it off and only considered his behavior as him trying to protect them.

You wanted to yell at Donnie, tell him “I told you so!”, and scold him for not listening to his girlfriend.

That would have been inappropriate, however. When Leo lost it and started to attack you and his brothers, you, Donnie, and Mikey ran for Donnie’s lab. Donnie quickly worked on an antidote for Leo while Raph held him off. That didn’t work as Leo ended up biting Raph, and Raph went crazy as well.

Donnie and Mikey then started to fight them off as you tried to finish your boyfriend’s work. Donnie was bit by Raph.

You and Mikey were left. You two worked hard to finish the antidote, but before you could finish, the others began to try and get in. Mikey said he would fight them off, and you thought he did, that is until he and is brothers broke down the door of Donnie’s lab. Thankfully, you had finished the antidote. All you had to do was get the solution into some needles and safely inject each turtle with it.

You were now hiding in the kitchen cupboard, holding the bottle of the antidote closely. There was loud noises, growls, and shouts of frustration outside as the turtles looked for you.

“Please go out please go out…” you whispered to yourself. The noises stopped and you heard footsteps leave the kitchen. Cracking the cupboard door open, you saw the kitchen was a mess, but the turtles had left. Sighing to yourself, you climbed down and made a run for the lab.

You had to hide only once behind the pinball machine as you crossed the main room. The turtles went into the dojo and you had a clear path to the lab.

However, something stopped you.

“(Y/N)…?” W-what happened…“ Donnie’s voice reached your ears. You froze, not sure if he was only trying to lure you in, or if he was being serious.

"Donnie? Are you okay?” turning around, you saw your boyfriend standing there, holding his head with his eyes closed.

“Yeah… I got a headache…” he stumbled over to you. You wanted to take a step back, to turn around and run, but how could he talk so normally if he was still in that crazed, zombie-like state?

“Did the parasitic venom wear off?” you placed a hand on his shoulder. He nodded, “Oh good! I thought I lost you!”

You pulled him into a hug, and he embraced you. Donnie began to gently kiss your neck and you smiled to yourself. But that all changed quickly as pain quickly erupted from your neck. You pushed the purple clad turtle away and realization hit you as you saw the black eyes and wicked grin.

He was still infected.

He bit you.

Now you were infected.

“You are so gullible, my dear,” Donnie cupped your chin and you began to feel sick.

“Get away from me!” You pushed him again and ran towards the lab. You managed to get there and shut the door. The pain began to spread from your neck into your shoulders and arms, making your hands shake as you tried to get the antidote into the needles. It was hard, but you were able to get them into the needles, plus an extra one for you.

“I hope this works…” you gasped as you started to shake more and felt your vision going orange and hazy. The door burst open behind you as you grabbed the needle and went to inject yourself with the antidote.

“Don’t try and fight it, (Y/N),” Donnie hissed into your ear and wrapped his arms around you. You wanted to fight him, but you were too weak. You could barely move. To make things worse, he began to kiss your jaw line and neck, making your knees weak.

“Stop,” you whispered. Tears formed in your eyes as he held you tighter and began to pull you from the desk and the lab.

“You will join us soon, my dear,” he sounded amused. With the last bit of energy you could muster, you lifted your arm up, and stabbed the needle into his arm. He let out a shriek and let go of you, causing you to fall to the floor.

You didn’t know what would happen next, as you felt another sharp pain, this time in your arm, and everything went black.

anonymous asked:

how do you shoot a bag for the first time safely?

I only have experience with ECP(East Coast Powder). If you’re shooting for the first time it is a very different experience than sniffing. The bioavailability from sniffing/snorting/blowing is from ~50-65%, while shooting is 100%. So when you are shooting you want to aim to do about half of what you normally would do in a bump/line. Start out by putting that half of what you would normally do in a spoon. Fill rig with about 20-30 units of water, then squirt this on top of the dope in your spoon. Stir the mixture of water and dope with the back of the rig after removing the cap (NOT THE SIDE WITH THE NEEDLE), keep stirring until the mixture becomes as clear as possible and with minimal to no remnants of dope left. Most of the time you will be left with a cloudy solution but if you are getting clean shit that is not cut up a lot you will be left with an almost clear solution. Proceed to get a small piece of cotton, something about half of the size of the nail on your pinky. Using a Q-tip is what me and my girl use, just rip a part of the top off and roll it up. Once you have your cotton, drop it in to the solution of your water and dope mixture. Get the rig ready, make sure the plunger is pushed in completely. Put the end of the needle against the cotton and begin pulling back SLOWLY. Do NOT let the needle go completely through the cotton and touch the spoon as you will not be filtering it as well as you should be and you will dull the rig quickly. Keep pulling back and make sure it is filling up. If you are only getting air lift rig up and push forward until you get to the point where you only have the dope/water solution and then go back to the cotton and repeat the last step of the process and continue to do this until all of the solution from your spoon is in your rig. As you end filling up the rig, you should see the cotton turn white and dry. The remaining contents left in the spoon are to be discarded, as it is cut and actually what the cotton helped filter out. Next flick at the rig which will get all of the air to the top of the rig, remove these by pushing up till you only have the dope solution. Do NOT worry about tiny tiny air bubbles, if you try and get every single bubble out, you will lose a lot of your dope from it coming out the top. It takes over a CC of only air to be shot directly in you to begin causing problems (your rig is measured in units, 100 units=1cc). Great! You’re almost there! Now that you have your shot ready find a belt, charger wire, anything that you can tie around your upper arm tightly. Proceed to tie your upper arm off about 2.5 inches above where your arm bends. If you are a first time user, you should have no problems finding a vein pop up. Before inserting, look at the rig in the light and find the side that is almost glowing, it will be brighter than the other sides. Make sure the glowing side is up when inserting. Once you have found a prominent vein insert at a 45 degree angle and pointing in an upward direction (you want to be shooting to the top of your arm not down towards your hand). about 80-90 of the needle should now be in your vein, pull the plunger back and look for any signs of blood. If you see blood you are good to go, begin pushing the plunger in very slowly and be sure not to move your arm or the rig at all. If you do not see blood come back in to the rig, remove it and continue to try to insert into a vein and get blood to rush back in to the rig. When you finally get the rush back, as advised above be careful not to move your arm or the rig as this may cause you to come out of the vein, push forward very slowly until it is all out of the rig. After you have successfully emptied the rig take it out as you put it in and do so very slowly. And there you have it, you’ve successfully made a shot and IV’d it.

In the last step do not get frustrated or discouraged in this step, as even us, the most advanced users have trouble finding a vein. I highly suggest watching a video on how to inject heroin safely on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Miv8i-slK2w Please skip to 1:25 of this video because the beginning involves useless tools that are not needed. Ignore the citric acid as well as the heating aspect. For the first few times I also recommend having a partner present for helping you inject. Lastly, a rig is obviously the syringe itself and is a slang term that most people use. Also I did not include the aspect of heating because with ECP there is usually no need to and you will 99.9% of the time heat it too long and will lose most of your dope. I know some people will contest the way I have explained but after injecting for quite some time by following these steps I have never had any issues or created any tracks in the process. The most important thing in this entire guide is the part where you should do half of what you would normally sniff. This is very important, ALWAYS start small and build your way up. You can always make more shots but you cannot take them back. I hope this was of some help. Be safe and most importantly have fun! :)

Follow the 3-Poke Rule or 1 and Done Rule: Once you have used a needle 3 times, dispose of it. Open a new one. 1 and done meaning 1 use and then dispose of it. It’s safest to open a new sharp every time. Needles dull after every poke.

Tools for sterile needle preperation:
sterile syringe, tourniquet, sterile water, sterile alcohol wipes, sterile bandaids, sterile spoon (cooker/stericup), cottons, biohazard disposal.

_______________________________________________________________________

  • Measure out the amount of product and put it in in your spoon (or stericup).
  • Add roughly 20-30cc of water.
  • Stir the shards in the warm water until they have all dissolved. Meth is water soluble. 
  • Place a cotton ball in the center of the liquid. 
  • Make sure the “eye of the needle” (the side of the needle point that has the hole) is facing down, pressing against the cotton.
  • Begin to pull the plunger back slowly at a 45° angle and the liquid will begin to pour in. 
  • Once that has finished, flip the needle around with the tip facing the ceiling. 
  • If there are remaining air bubbles, gently shake or flick the barrel until they are gone. 
  • Slowly push the plunger to the top of the barrel. There should be no space. 
  • Wipe the tip of the syringe off before you shoot. Most of the time there is residue that is left on top – that is the only reason doing a shot of meth should burn.

It’s actually laughable that the Harper Government thinks that outlawing safe injection sites and enforcing harsher penalties on those convicted of marijuana possession is focusing on prevention, harm reduction and treatment.

It’s also absurd that the Harper Government believes that safe injection sites don’t do anything to fight addiction to opiates when in fact offering treatment to addicts is exactly part of the reason why safe injection sites should exist.

Drill and Fill: An Everlark AU One Shot

Inspired by a real-life, not-so-sexy, appointment at the dentist’s office and a subsequent silly conversation with @papofglencoe​. So this is dedicated to her.
