The dangers of shooting heroin
    #4340134 - 06/26/05 09:17 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I heard from a bird that a guy I went to school with got REALLY messed up on heroin.  Only, it's not in the way you think.  Apparently, he went over to his girlfriend's house, shot up heroin and missed his vein.  He accidentally shot it into his muscle.  This made him feel sick, but he didn't go to the doctor for obvious reasons.  Well, apparently shooting the smack into his muscle made his kidneys fail.  :eek:  He had to go to the hospital and get his blood changed or something.  :puke:

I have never done heroin and haven't known many who have shot it up, either.  I guess you could call me a "never willbie".  Is this sort of thing common?  I would image it would happen more often than you hear about.  Do many people's kidneys fail due to shooting smack up in their muscle?

Also, I've heard that if you shoot one air bubble into your veins you will die.  I'm skeptical, but I have no idea either way.

Shooting air into your vein will put you in serious danger.

That is the reason you get in trouble for shooting the air pistol at other students in high school Metalwork, if it enters a cut on your body you can die  :eek:

How in the world do people not die from that more often?? It seems like something that could easily happen. Especially if you're already fucked up.

Have you seen the music video for 'Necro - I need drugs'

He feeds his uncle free cocaine & heroine to shoot up in the video, it's a pretty gruesome sight.

A small air bubble seems like something that could slip into a syringe very easily.

its pretty easy to get all the air out of a syringe. thats why that doesnt happen all that often... i dont know about shotin smack IM instead of iv making your kidney's fail.... maybe that dude was already just in particulary bad health ... or it coulda been bad shit, cut with something nasty

I don't know whether he was healthy or not. He's known for being a really buff weight lifter.

The air bubbles don't always kill even if they are large. It is similar to when a diver comes up to fast and gets the bends. http://www.csmc.edu/6986.html

Why make a post singling out heroin? Every drug is dangerous.

The particular story involves heroin, I'd assume that's why he made a post about it.

I'm pretty sure the goal of this post was to find out if:

a) Heroin can cause your liver to fail if not injected correctly
B) Air bubbles in your bloodstream can kill you

Not to single out heroin as being particulary dangerous.

Ding ding ding!

I'm genuinely curious. I'm not ragging on heroin. I do think it's a terrible drug, but making that statement was not my intention when I made the decision to make this thread.

Well, I have no idea. That sounds like as good an explanation as any.

You wanna back that up somehow? I'll try to find the article I read in a minute, but it said that bags of dope from the streets in Camden were upwards of 70% pure....
