Making Veins Pop!

So, I recently did something really stupid while trying to get that precious shot of junk into my body. My veins were shot from overuse and I OneUsewas having problems trying to find a vein to register for days. I’m sure this is a nightmare that plagues many IV drug users. I’ve literally spent hours at a time trying to find a vein, blood everywhere, arms and feet swollen and aching, perhaps even bruising on your neck. This time was just like that. Until I found a pulsing vein in my left pointer finger. I wish I could say this was the first time that I had attempted to go there, but it wasn’t. So I knew the risk ahead of time. I had made it there before, but the percentage of success has been low, so I knew the risks. But I was desperate to make the shot and, at this point, would try anything. So I made the plunge and stuck the needle in a tiny, tiny little vein. The vein itself was probably smaller than the 29 gauge needle I was using. But finally… I registered blood. But as soon as I gently pushed down on the plunger the whole area swelled up. I tried to register again, and nothing. With an exasperated sigh I pulled out and kept digging to get the remainder of the junk anywhere I could find, after having wasted the portion I inserted into my delicate finger. I know how stupid this all sounds, how pathetic and desperate. At the time I felt pathetic and desperate, especially since this struggle with my veins had been going on for days. I eventually found a working vein and was able to use it for a couple of days (another unsafe practice) but my body was able to heal where I had been relentless poking and prodding at it. When the swelling in my hand went down, I was able to see an abscess on my finger. UGH. And abscess on my finger?? That fucking sucks.

Since I’m a black tar heroin user, and an ex meth shooter, abscess are nothing new to me, and we take care of them ourselves at home, only going to the doctor when we don’t have antibiotics left. But still, any type of infection or injury shouldn’t be taken lightly when it comes to self-administered IV injections.

The lack of usable veins is nothing new to any experienced IV drug user. IMing is a good way too inject your drug without the hassle of having to find a vein. But of course this comes with risks too. Dirty needles pushed into your muscles can lead to extremely deep abscesses. And of course, for anyone who is used to the immediate rush of your drug of choice hitting your brain almost instantaneously with 100% bioavailability, it’s hard to give up. But when I have completely exhausted my veins, I try to take a break and settle for IMing for a few days to give my veins some time to heal. It’s easier said than done since the desire for that instant shot to your brain is so overpowering. But if you do have the willpower to go 4 or 5 days settling for 85% bioavailability, it’s amazing how fast your body can heal itself. Suddenly, you have veins again! It’s especially useful after shooting coke, when you are doing a shot every 15-20 minutes! But even with heroin, think of all the injections you are doing in a 5 day period, if you have any type of sizable daily habit. On an average day I do about 2 shots in the morning, at least 1 mid-day shot, and at least 2 in the evening. About 5 shots a day – minimum. Even when I have lighter days, I try to keep the same amount of shots, but use a smaller dose. On heavy days, it can be considerable more. But on a low-average that’s 25 shots in a 5 day period. Think of all the havoc that can wreak if you are using the same veins over and over again. When meth was in the picture the daily number was considerably higher, with the added danger of meth itself. It literally eats away at your veins and skin.

Since no IV drug user, myself included, wants to resort to IM shots, even for short periods of time, it’s best to proactively keep your veins healthy and fresh. There are a number of precautions you can take to keep your veins in top shooting shape. So I’ve put together some tips and tricks to help your veins “pop” as easily as possible. There is tons to write about safe shooting, but for the purposes of this blog, I’ll stick with how to easily access a vein and maintain vein health.

Preparing the Vein –

You want to make sure he vein is accessible and easy to shoot in, ie. there is a large amount of blood pumping through it, making it easy to hit. This helps keep injections to a minimum, you only have to puncture the skin once, avoiding all those repetitive attempts, which aren’t only dangerous but EXTREMELY frustrating.  I used to do a generic fist pump, which works okay, and I still do when I’m in a confined space like a car. But for people with more weathered veins, it doesn’t always do the trick. Pushup are another commonly known trick, and it works okay. But I don’t always find it the most effective. My SO taught me to swing my arm like a propeller. While this might look a little silly if you are fixing in the presence of company, it does get the blood pumping. I’ve seen this written about on multiple other safe shooting websites as well. One in particular, targeting meth IV users, says to swing your arm like a “propeller”. It has a cartoon that lists various other tricks and tips that are useful.

Harm Reduction-Meth Veins

So here is my list. Hopefully you will find some of these tricks helpful!

* Avoid cigarettes, as they tend to constrict your veins

* Stay warm – fix after a hot shower if necessary. If you are cold your veins will go in hiding. If you aren’t about to take a shower before you get your heroin in your, you can use a hot water pack and rest it on the desired area. Or simply run hot water on your body from the sink.

* Pump blood to the vein, be it fist pumping, propeller arms, pushups, anything to get blood moving to that area. I hop and skip when shooting in my feet/legs.

* Drinking coffee can help. Stimulants will get the heart pumping and widen the blood vessels, helping your veins pop out. (When I was experiencing vein difficulty, I used to shoot meth first, although that’s not recommend, lol). Coke, however, has he opposite effect since it is a vascular constrictor.

* Stay hydrated. Drinking water can actually help veins keep pumping.

* Slapping the vein. There is controversy over this technique. I’ve read online that it is a myth and doesn’t work. But I typically believe what I see, and countless times I have slapped the desired vein to help it pop out more, and low and behold, it works for me.

* Use a new needle. Yes, this is an obvious safe shooting practice in terms of hygiene. But I’m including it for vein health as well. A used needle will rip apart your veins, damaging them and making them inaccessible. I’ve included a picture of a needle before the first use, then after many uses. Just imagine that thing trying to pierce your veins. Using a fresh syringe will definitely help your veins say healthy and usable longer!

* Use a tourniquet. But beware that improper use can be extremely dangerous. You must be careful not to wrap it to tight or leave it on too long. You run the risk of blowing a vein. Proper use dictates that the tourniquet must be removed after you register and before you push the plunger down to prevent blowing a vein. However in full disclosure, this is something that I tend to overlook. But I have suffered consequences, damaging a vein in my ankle due to improper tourniquet use.

All the things we just covered are basic, everyday things you can do at home for free. But if you are down and able to spend some cash, there are other things you can do. Substituting your tourniquet for a blood pressure cuff can work better than a tourniquet. It covers a larger portion of your arm and you can make it tighter without causing as much damage. You can buy one at any pharmacy for between $20 and $200. Another is the use of a vasodilator supplement. As the name suggests, these supplements open up or dilate your veins, causing blood to flow more freely through them. As supplements, they are typically used by body builders. But you can also get prescription vasodilators, normally used by people with hypertension or coronary artery disease. Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa is a herbal vasodilator that also is marketed as an natural Viagra, so that could be a nice bonus side effect. CTD Labs Noxivol Powder is another that is aimed towards body builders. You can pick some up at a good nutrition store for about $35. There are also topical ointments that are used as vasodilators, like PERFORMANCE BRANDS Hot Stuff, which affects the micro-circulation at the layers directly under your skin. The one I mentioned goes for $8.00 online, plus shipping. These types of products can come with some unwanted side effects, so do your research thoroughly before investing veinlite EMSyour money and regret taking them. Nitroglycerin applied to the skin can also help dilate your veins. EMTs carry it in small tubes. I happened to live with an EMT for a while and he would give me boatloads of these things. That was the only cool part of living with that guys, lol. So if you can get your hand some of those, they definitely work. You can also buy tubes of Nitroglycerin ointment, normally sold to prevent chest pain in people with heart conditions. A tube costs around $40 online. I would suspect it would have the same result as the little ones the EMTs use. One of the comments that came in suggested the use of a veinlite EMS. That’s a fantastic idea too! I’d love to get one of these, sadly they come with a $200-$400 dollar price tag. But if you can afford it, I bet it’s definitely worth the money!

Using these tips, along with hygienic, clean, safe shooting practice will make the whole experience way more enjoyable. The other thing to keep in mind when picking a vein to shoot in is the location on the body. There is a hierarchy of safe shooting spots. I won’t go into details, but the order goes as follows:

1. Arms

2. Hands

3. Feet

4. Legs

5. Breasts

6. Armpit

7. Neck

8. Penis

9. Femoral Vein

Anything from #4 (Legs) down should be avoided. The legs are controversial, they aren’t really dangerous, unless you shoot into the wrong type of vein, and it isn’t always easy to decipher. So to error on the side of caution, I generally avoid my legs, until I’m desperate.

The last thing I’m going to touch on is damage due to repetitive use. Common sense should have told me not to shoot in my finger, and the same is true with overuse. Each time the needle penetrates the skin, and then the vein, you are doing damage. It might be imperceptible at first, but time after time it adds up. It’s something I struggle with every time I strap on a tourniquet. When you’ve killed all of your veins, and pickings are slim, it’s natural to hit one vein over and over again if you can actually register. But it can cause long term or permanent damage. Easier said than done, I know. But it is a good rule of thumb.

All I’ve covered here are tips for accessing and maintaining healthy veins. There is tons of more info out there on safe shooting tips. Here is a good resource to start with if you are interested in reading more about IV drug administration. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Bluelight is filled with good information and resources about all sorts of drug related issues. I frequent it regularly, and the people there are generally open minded. You can get answers to questions the rest of the Internet would just blast you for. Of course it still is the Internet, so don’t expect it to be completely slander free! Safe shooting everyone!!

Peace, Love and Rock ‘n Roll!

  2. Amazing blog!!
    I’m actually sending the link out to friends.
    I run an exchange (syringe) and was wondering if i could use some of your info. (Full credit ro you obviously.)


  3. Ah, Kristen. I’m sorry I’m just getting back to the land of technology after being arrested again and thankfully being released. You are mainlining, I assume? How do you feel about IM injection? That is your next best option in terms of bioavailability. But it comes with similar risk factor, and of course the needle. I have worse scars on my upper arms from muscling than I do track marks (although that’s debatable). Smoking is your next best option. Have you mastered the art of chasing the dragon? That is the fastest way of getting a quick fix smoking. I can get into the technicality of the best way to smoke if you want to get into it one on one. Let me know.


  4. I am having a really hard time today what would be my best opinion other than shooting I have a really high tolerance and just want to get high and feel better


  5. Maybe you could start posting something helpful such as how to break free from the addiction rather than guide people to their slow death.


  6. Hi. Wow! You really know your shit! Please, if you can help me out, I’m desperate. So unfortunately after 3 years of using, I can not for The life of me find a fucking vein to shot in either arm. I’ve tried my hands, but the results have been disastrous. I just went through 4 bags trying to hit in a vein under my knee cap, and it was unsuccessful. I’m really scared that I fucked up my left arm…where the vein is, it’s completely swollen, red from the vein to the wrist, hot, and itchy and just not good. Now under my kneecap it feels the same. Please help. I don’t want to be sick and sniffing (blowing bags) do absolutely nothing at all for me. If you haven’t already figured it out, I’m a heroin user. So, please please please, any advice??? I’m stressed, worried, and feeling shitty. Also, any advice for my left arm and what’s wrong with it? I want to avoid the hospital at all costs! Please, I would ever so greatly appreciate a reply as soon as you can.
    Thank you so much for sharing your incredible advice! Oh and PS…I tried doing the propeller for my right arm. It looked as though it was going to work, but the blood I drew into my work was a false alarm. I’m still trying that again though!!! Again, you rock! Please get back to me, AND THANK YOU!

  9. I’ve been jackin the D for 37yrs so you know my pipes are shot. A few months ago I got a veinlite EMS. It shines yellow and orange LED lights into your skin and makes hidden veins show up as dark lines. It has certainly helped me find ones that I did’nt know were there. It was well worth the price. Happy hunting

    I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and may come back in the future.
    I want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great
    writing, have a nice afternoon!


  11. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!


  12. Hi Alanna, thanks so much for writing in! I’m really glad that you found value in my blog. My whole goal is to connect with like-minded people like you. So I’m always really pleased when I get a good comment like this that I feel other people will benefit from as well. Your question is a tricky one. Could it possibly be easier to fix if you did it yourself? In a word; yes. Once you start sticking yourself multiple times a day, you get to know your veins like the back of your hand. I never let anyone else hit me because nobody else knows the idiosyncrasies of my unique veins. It doesn’t come right away; there would be learning curve. But eventually you would be able to do it yourself better than anyone else.
    HOWEVER…. the undesired collateral damage of no longer requiring someone else to hit you can be far worse than the benefit of being slightly easier to hit over a period of time. You’ve been smart to put that control in someone else’s hands. I’ve yet to meet an addict whose use didn’t exponentially escalate after they learned to hit themselves. My last boyfriend was not an addict, but he was an occasional IV drug user, mostly meth, but some heroin too over the years. But he never injected himself. I’m sure he could have if he wanted to. But it was his first line of defense against an out of control addiction. He always relied on his girlfriends to do it for him. (And he tended to date junky girls so that wasn’t a problem for him, lol.) If I could give you advice, it would be not to take that control on yourself. I can’t pretend to know anything about your relationship. But I can only hope if you two care about each other, you are helping each other not fall into the darkest pit of despair addiction and try to keep each other in check if you see the other going too far towards the dark side. Trust in your partner to give you the strength that you probably won’t have yourself (if you’re like 99.9% of the rest of the world who’s ventured into the land of IV drug use). Let him, or whoever you entrust with the task of injecting you at the time, be your first line of defense. Give yourself a fighting chance against an utterly-hopeless, life-destroying addiction. Not everyone has to experience a “rock bottom” as we’ve come to know it. And you have a huge advantage and a fighting chance at being one of the smart few who doesn’t end up destroying their lives. I know it seems tempting to not have to rely on other people and taking the control on yourself. But trust me; it’s not worth the risk. I have a pretty liberal stance on drugs, but I don’t try to fool myself or pretend that IV drug use isn’t a life-changing game. I believe some drug use can be recreational. But I’m not sure that IV drug use can ever be recreational. And I know that addiction, especially heroin addiction, can never be recreational. So unless you’ve already cosigned yourself to being a hopeless junky with no more options in life (which I know sounds crazy, but many people go into their heroin careers fully intending to throw their life away, although most would never admit it), I hope that you continue on the path your own and abstain from injecting yourself, knowing that it’s actually a safeguard against destroying everything that’s currently good in your life, most importantly your self-esteem. One of the blogs I’ve been meaning to write is about the importance of taking decisions about IV drug use as serious as thought ought to be taken. Too much of the time we don’t fully consider the consequences of what seems like a recreational activity at the time. But IV drug use should never be taken lightly. As you know, it does change your life forever. I’m certainly not one to tell you that it’s bad. IV drug use takes things to a whole other level, and for those who can use it wisely and appreciate it, it can be awesome. It can also be the downfall of everything. So continue to take it as seriously as you have been and give yourself that fighting chance. I’m positive you’ll be thankful for your decision down the road. You still get the benefits of experiencing an extremely intense and satisfactory method of taking drugs, without all the responsibility and temptation that typically comes with it.
    I know that when people write in questions, if they have their mind set on something, they’re going to do it anyway no matter what. And I’ll still support you no matter what choices you make. I’m here to support all my fellow users and addicts, no matter what stage of their use they are in. There are always ways to give yourself a leg up at any stage. We all need support. But I do hope that in this case you heed my advice. Because one thing is for certain; If you choose to inject yourself, your life will be much harder over the years than if you choose not to. I’m 100% certain of this. You might beat the odds. You might avoid crushing addiction. But it will not be an easy road. I guarantee.
    Haha, I think I might just have had a “shit just got real moment.” lol. I didn’t mean to sound too heavy. But I do hope that the seriousness of the situation comes across loud and clear. Either way, I’d love to hear back from you and get an update on how you are doing and what choices you’ve made. Feel free to comment here or anywhere on the blog, or email me directly at I’d be happy to answer any other questions you have or just share shit about our similar life circumstances. Good luck with everything and stay safe, first and foremost!
    Peace, Love and Rock ‘n Roll!


  13. Wow this site is great thank you 🙂 its good practical advice, Im in the uk and am yet to find a site from the uk that is as helpful as this, nothing worse than asking a question or seeking advice just to be judged and blasted!! I also use Bluelight again very helpful. Iv been using for around 5 years but only iving for around 1 year, I have the most arkward veins and struggle most times, Iv never actually done it myself my bf has to do it for me, I wonder if it would be easier to do if I did have the guts to do myself? Not sure it would make any difference I till wouldnt be able to see them. Anyway just wanted to say, like I said that your sites brill and been a big big help so thanks again 🙂 much love!!!!

  14. If u can go that long without it why would u start back up? I’ve been doing it for 3 years and I’m sick of it. I can’t find a vein so I muscle pop I want to quit but the sickness is hell


  15. Great blog, stumbled on it by accident and gave me a lot of useful information I wish I’d had earlier. My veins run deep and getting them to surface is a pain and ends up in more misses than hits, to the point where I can register blood, only a small amount, and then it’s lost and I have to abandon the slam.

    But, like you say, when a good vein becomes available the temptation to overuse it is strong. I’m just hoping in the short 6 months I’ve been iv-ing I haven’t wiped them out completely.

    It’s killing me, but I’m taking a break for a couple of weeks to let my arms recover, increase my fluid intake, exercise and lose some body fat (not a bad thing) in the hopes that some of my little friends reappear and prove to me that they are not dead.

    I’d rather go without for a while than lose that rush completely.

    Thanks for a great read, loads of useful information, and have started directing friends to read it as well.

  16. Hey,

    Impressive to see someone in the game for such a length of time. Anyways thanks for the article its great. God bless be safe rock out 330


  17. Hi Lisa, thx for writing in. Sorry you are having trouble so early on. Hopefully it will get easier for you as you get more comfortable with the process and get to know your body a little better. The absolute best thins you can do for your veins are in this post. I would suggest for immediate results, getting veins to pop right in the here and now, taking a brisk walk, possibly even followed by a hot shower, is the best way to get results. Like, I knew I would always try to hit right after my morning walk down to the dog park. It was perfect timing for me. If you can plan your injections around things like that, it should help the most. However, for long term success, which luckily you are still early enough in the game to plan for, is good vein maintenance. Which is basically following three rules: 1.) Always use a sharp, new needle – every single time. 2.) Always rotate injection spots, letting the veins heal on their own. 3.) Always disinfect your hands and surrounding area to avoid infection for out bacteria. And I’ll add one more bonus rule, which should be a no-brainier, but unfortunately, too many of us get too absorbed and obsessed to follow this rule. Never poke around for extended periods of time searching for a vein. In an ideal world, if you can’t find a place to hit right away, cut your loses, toss the shot if there is blood in it, make up a new one and muscle or smoke it. That’s what I’m forcing myself to do these days. It has the added benefit of helping me stay out of the “addict/fien-ding” mentality as well, which is good.

    I’m glad you found my blog! Please let me know if there are any other questions I can answer for you as you begin your heroin career. I hope you take great lengths to protect yourself, your health and your direction in life. Because heroin has a nasty way of derailing even the most focus-minded individuals. But if you ever need help readjusting or just need a friendly ear, you can always reach out to me. I love the community of people who read this blog and the fact that we can always reach out to one another for support. Thx for reading!!


  18. Thank you for posting this. I’ve been doing heroin for about 6 months, and when I first started I didn’t shoot myself…. Always had someone else do it. They all had issues finding veins. Mine are just a little deep and unfortunately just not as visible. I just noticed a few good men in my feet, and have been using the right foot for the past couple days, but I can’t seem to hit it today… Any extra suggestions? I don’t like poking around, especially on my sensitive feet! Gonna go chug some water now after reading this article!!!

  20. So glad I found this site. Just had another totally frustrating time trying to get a vein to register. I live in South Florida, and unfortunately there are no needle exchange programs (for fucks sake!). I try and buy new needles as often as possible, but usually I end up using the same one for a week, before I go and cop again and it’s really wreaking havoc on my veins. Something’s gotta give. Moneys tight and Im just barely able to afford enough H to get by and be off sick at work, etc. So us know, my junkie ass would rather save the $$ for H then $3-$5 needles. Sooo long story short (lol yea right) i really appreciate this post, and found it extremely helpful. I hadn’t thought of hopping in order to help get my leg veins to pop, will def be trying that. I’ll be following ur blog, and thanks for the great tips.
    Look forward to future posts 🙂


  21. Thank you so much for posting your advice. You are very right about this fact. I really wanted to post it under Ask A Junky: Routes of Administration, Pt. 2, where I described the methods of insufflation, smoking and rectal administration. There I advice users to smoke with a wide tube, like a toilet paper or paper towel roll instead of a straw if possible. Not only is it not toxic, it also makes it easier to catch all the smoke and not let any of it “go up in smoke” and waste. I’ll probably post your comment there as well.

    I thoroughly enjoyed your comment and hope that you feel free to post as many as you’d like on any other blog post on this site as well. It’s very interesting to hear how people from all different parts of the world use their heroin. I hope to heard for from you in the future! There will never be any hard feelings when correcting or disagreeing with me. This is a site for open communication and free expression! The more opinions the better! Feel free to reach out to me at any time!



  22. Thank you so much! I really appreciate your comment. I hope more people find my blog as well. I think it’s important that people hear another side of the story. It’s so one sided in the media. It was never meant to be a pro-heroin blog, but a blog that tells the real side of a story of someone who’s living a life with heroin, the good and the bad parts. Please feel free to pass my blog along and let people know about it! It would mean a lot to me! And anytime you want to reach out to me directly, you can reach me through my email, Peace, Love & Rock ‘n Roll! D_D


  23. Thank You for the time and effort you put into this site, Diva €:^}
    It seems you’re based in America and, I’d like to add a little Harm Reduction advice for H smokers, if I may. Basically, I’ve just been reading through a forum, wherein the thread’s Original Poster (OP) asked for advice on Chasing The Dragon (CTD) . The advice which followed the request left me peturbed and, somewhat bewildered. You see, almost every single USA based advisor, recommended using a straw or Bic pen sleeve to inhale the resultant H smoke from a chase. I’m sure you’re well aware that from a HR point of view, that is terribly dangerous advice. Not to mention an unnecessary waste of the smokeable build-up which collects within the tube. The heat generated by the H fumes is high enough to cause significant (if not total) release of toxic components contained within the plastics which, when ingested, are carcinogenic.
    Here in Great Britain, the standard method of CTD consists of foil to smoke from and with: Use that pen to make a foil tube. Slide the foil tube off the pen. One then has a safe tube through which to inhale H fumes. A secondary (and one may say primary) bonus of the foil “tooter” is the often righteous build-up of H within the tube. This can then be smoked simply by unwrapping, then flattening the H covered foil tooter – making another foil tooter to inhale through, thus beginning the process anew. With experience comes the expertise of placing slight crimps along your tooter in order to increase the collection of H.
    I did try to post this on the site in question, unsuccessfully. As many users of that site (upon which I believe you yourself run a blog) also use this splendid site, it seemed common sense to post here.
    Please accept my apologies if I come across as wanting/needing to hijack your site as, this was never my intention.

    Long may you continue to provide informative, entertaining content for all of us living in the Global Junkie Neighbourhood.

  26. Hey there, thanks for writing in. Congratulations on taking the first step in getting the monkey off your back. Your family and new granddaughter will be grateful and benefit from your new found clean time. It’s hard to say exactly what you should do without knowing the shape of your veins and your history. Where have you been hitting? Are there any areas that you have yet to explore that are untapped? I’m in the same boat as you these days, after 17 years my veins are completely shot. I’ve stopped IV’ing almost all together. I muscle about 85% of the time these days unfortunately. Every once in a while a vein will reappear and I’ll get lucky, but I’ve had to resign myself that after all this time, I’ve done enough damage to just not be possible to hit anymore on a regular basis. But an IM injection can still be quite rewarding and you can definitely feel the shot and even taste it. I have a few recommendations if you do decide to go this route… 1. use your bicep muscle, it’s the most sure fire way to know you’re hitting muscle and not a fatty pocket and not nearly as painful as your thigh. 2. Dilute the entire syringe with liquid so it can dissolve evenly throughout the muscle. 3. Go as slow as possible. You won’t feel it if you just jam a small amount of prepared h quickly into your muscle (although you won’t get sick). But if you take your time and let it slowly dissipate into your arm, you’ll be surprised how nice the shot can be. Good luck and if you have any more questions about areas you’ve yet to explore, let me know and I’ll be happy to answer any additional questions. You can also email me at

  28. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this blog.
    I really hope to see the same high-grade content from
    you in the future as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get
    my very own site now 😉


  29. Hi! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new initiative
    in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us
    beneficial information to work on. You have done a wonderful job!


  30. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. No one has ever said anything about this to me before. I’ll do some checking and make sure my content is optimized for all browsers. I want to make sure anyone who visits my blog has an easy and enjoyable experience reading it. Would you say that it’s most the posts that are problematic, or just certain ones. Thanks again!

    Peace, Love & Rock ‘n Roll!


  31. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your website.

    It seems like some of the written text within your posts
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this
    is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Appreciate it


  32. I feel ya. That’s the worst for your veins. But once you get a taste for that rush, there’s no other option but to slam. Fuck the pookie. I feel like I’ve got one more working vein left and after that I don’t know what I’m going to do.


  33. I know right?! Do you slam meth too? When I quit meth my arms immediately got better. I haven’t had an abscessed since I was alternating meth/heroin shots every two hours. Even black tars fine for your veins, as long as you don’t tweek. And use a fresh needle each time! I never reuse anymore. I use a fresh one each and every time. Wednesdays are two-for-one at the needle exchange. The last two times I went it I picked up 1,400 needles! Funny how they still seem to go so fast….
