These are the facts — if you’re getting high by yourself (or hell, with a group of friends), you’re not getting high safely.
The only true way to get high safely is under the care of a nurse or a doctor.
Is that possible? Rarely.
There are places in some cities that have needle exchange services where you can essentially shoot up under the supervision of a nurse (maybe a doctor, I don’t know, I’ve never been to one).
(‘Harm Reduction’ Methods – helping people get ‘High – more saferer’? Hmmm?)
These places do their best to help you get high safely.
For example, they give you sterile needles, they give you supplies to clean yourself before and after you shoot up, and they stand by with naloxone (for heroin addicts) in case you fall out (overdose).
But this is just for people who are getting high by shooting up.
What about everyone else? I rarely shot up, and when I did, I was super careful, but being careful does NOT equal being safe.
There’s No Such Thing as a Truly Safe Way to Get High
I’m going to assume if you’re reading this that you’re an adult and can make your own decisions about using drugs.
And I’m going to say this again — getting high isn’t safe, period.
There are so, so, many ways it can go wrong, and each drug has different ways that it can go wrong.
