Default Tricks to hitting a vein

So I shot up H for the first time a few days ago. My friend who also has almost no experience was doing the shot and it seriously took him like 20+ tries to hit my vein. I know we are probably just retarded, but is there some trick we are aren't doing for hitting the vein. I shot up like 3 times and each time it took him many tries to hit my vein. So my arm is poked to shit. Also my veins are very visible so I feel pretty retarded.

Thoughts?

Alright. Cool, didn't know this. Now I do.

Did you use a tourniquet? Or have a hot shower before hand? I was talking to a nurse who told me its easier to start at a lower angle relative to the arm in order to hit the vein, but then you run a higher risk of the vein moving than if you did it more verticle.

I'm always asked to clench/unclench my fist when I give blood, that seems to get the veins up well enough. Try a smaller gauge of needle?

I've never shot up, so my advise is fairly useless.

I was using the vein at the beginning of my forearm opposite my elbow. We got the smallest needles they had at CVS; I think they were 30 gauge. My friend went in with the needle almost parallel to my forearm.

Also, if you insert the needle then draw back and don't see blood, doesn't that mean air is the needle. So wouldn't you have to take it out and get the air out before trying again?

Some blood will come out into the syringe when you poke your vein, its called flashback.

I like to pull it back a little more once I see the blood in the syringe just to be sure the needle is still in the vein.
Ah ok. That must make things a lot easier.

These guys pretty much nailed it. I tend to flag (flashback) a couple times as I'm going in that way I know I'm in the vein the entire way. So I'll flag, shoot a little, flag again, then push all the way.

Welcome to the world of IV drug abuse. Are you able to obtain needles easily in the area you live in?

It was far from my first. It was just the first time shooting. It was pretty great. I live pretty close to Baltimore and the stuff we had was very pure. I did way too much though and ended up puking all the next day.

Whoa, I've never seen/heard of this flashback stuff. I mean it's happened accidentally, but I figure I just like, idk, caused some weird internal bleeding when my rig was suddenly filled with blood.

Smile Re: Tricks to hitting a vein

Make sure you see the vein, and it's poking out. Don't stab too deep (like directly down), rather at a good angle; there's a good chance you could be sticking all the way through the other side of a vein. It takes a bit of practice though.

I've never heard of it called flashback, but I don't let a lot of people know I shoot. He's right, though. As soon as you are below the skin, go ahead and pull back 1-2 units. A small bubble will form and when you hit the vein, blood will rush in.

Tourniquets always help, and if you are shooting for someone, take your index and thumb and pinch the vein slightly. It will help keep it in place. Also, I like to go in at around a 45 degree angle.

Yeah, in non-ghetto terms it's called aspirating.

That sounds a lot better.

The term flashback makes me think of a delorean hitting my veins.



DO NOT WANT

At least, not in my circulatory system.

That's for when after you've shot the heroin.

Thanks. I am not addicted yet but am close. In like 2 weeks I won't have a source anymore though; hopefully I won't be able to find another.

Or you could just work out, and you'll be able to find a vein easy as fuck, but that's kinda counter-intuitive.
