You're the greatest, DocJohn. I wish this little forum had been here during my drinking days. It can't have come at a better time. I do know that many people "self-medicate" with alcohol to relieve the symptoms of their mental illness. And I know that there will be days when I will miss drinking, even though I don't do it any more.

Thank you for putting this forum up.

Former problem drinker.

I have, by nature, always been cheap. In as much, I was thinking to myself, that if I wanted to get the most out of injecting my cocaine, I might be able to put it where it goes anyway, into the brain, by mixing up a small amount and hitting the internal carotid and do away with diluting the mix with my whole system and put it where it does the most good, my brain! The first time I did this I over did it. I am told that I was seizing for anywhere between fifteen and twenty minutes. Since then, I have continued to practice the same method only pushing only the smallest amount and waiting 3 to 5 seconds to see if I could do more. Then I would. This would go on until I lost the artery. Then I keep trying to find it. I have many instances of doing too much.... with bruises from seizing. I was wondering, am I alone with this type of use? A can anyone tell me why my vision shifts vertically forcing me to close one eye so that I might see clearly to continue?

Thank you very much for setting up this site. This is a forum here that I am very familiar with and have been able to help others with as I am a recovering alcoholic/addict myself. Looking forward to seeing people here and helping each other out.
