Clean your hands and your own mouthpiece Use soap and water or alcohol swabs to wash away germs that could go in your mouth. Start with a small amount If you don’t know how strong the drug is, this can help reduce your risk of overdose. Use your own mouthpiece or pipe This will help you avoid getting or spreading infection. Use a shatterproof Pyrex pipe Other pipes can get too hot or give off toxic fumes. Avoid using broken or cracked pipes Damaged pipes can lead to burns, cuts and infections.
Drink water, use lip balm and chew gum These things will help keep your mouth moist and reduce cracks, blisters and risk of infection. Make sure the drug is in the right part of the pipe bowl If necessary, tap pipe gently. Avoid burning your fingers Hold the pipe halfway down the stem. Apply heat to the bowl Keep the heat source moving around until smoke fills the pipe (so the bowl won’t crack). Use screens instead of Brillo (steel wool) Brillo can break apart and be inhaled, and its coating can make you sick. If you prefer, it's okay to wrap the brass screens completely around the Brillo and use them together as a screen.
Use a wooden push stick Wood is less likely than metal to damage the pipe. Inhale slowly This will help prevent burning your lungs. Exhale immediately Holding it in doesn't make the effects stronger—it only hurts the lungs more. Handle the pipe with care It'll be hot after using it. Eating when you're coming down will help you sleep. Feels like: heart is pumping fast short of breath hot, sweaty and shaky chest pain nausea faintness. Looks like: fast or no pulse fast or no breathing hot and sweaty skin confusion, anxiety unconscious vomiting seizures. If someone ODs… It is important to recognize the early symptoms of an overdose and seek medical assistance. Roll the person on their side (if unconscious) Call out for help—do not leave the person.

Beginner here, Ive managed to get some fishscale and cooked it using spoon method, got a nice yellow blob and waiting for it to dry now. After searching around i found multiple threads saying a straight pipe with some copper from speaker wires rolled into a ball and shoved down my pipe will work best. So i got that part covered, what im more confused about is how to burn the rock, ive tried melting it onto my chore and then heating the bottom of the glass just where it is but realised i don't get much smoke off that ( by looking at how much smoke runs along the pipe) . and ive tried heating the bottom of the glass until it starts to smoke and then i move the flame to at least 1 cm in front of the entrance and sometimes have the flame on the chore for a second and take it off, i have noticed there is heaps of smoke and my hits are harder. everyone on the fourms keep saying its best to have no indirect flame as it burns everything. Also, people say the chore stops the residue from sliding down my pipe but no matter what method i choose to smoke, there is always residue still running down the pipe. people say the chore stops the residue from sliding down my pipe but no matter what method i choose to smoke, there is always residue still running down the pipe.
When you first hit it, you'll be holding the pipe upwards so as not to drop your hit - but as the crackling sound dies down and you begin to pull thick smoke, lower it down as you inhale. I like to hold it slightly downwards, so that it burns off the chore and doesn't run down past it into the pipe as much. Yeah I was first taught to smoke crack at age 17 in Cleveland, Ohio by my friends uncle and was taught to make the pipe using a tire gauge with everything ripped off but the pipe part and if it has oil inside it (some do, the one I just bought in Chicago didn't, and ironically the choir boy they sell is silver, so no copper to burn off) once the pipe is ready and you have your choir boy filter nice and as tight as you can get it and still stuff it in the pipe, do so (I make it so it almost doesn't fit in the pipe so it scrapes any resin nice and good Bc it seems to shrink a little with use). Now on to smoking, I was always taught to hold it straight up and down at first take a couple deep breathes, breathe out light the lighter and hit the pipe lightly while touching the flame to the rock briefly a few times as the crackle sound dies down then start heating the metal just under where the end is (under where the crack is) as you simultaneously start rotating the pipe so the crack melts evenly and also moving from the up position to the straight forward smoking position where you stay slowly inhaling and rotating the pipe most of the time, before tilting the pipe downward so any melted cocaine ends up somewhere near the smoking end and also to try and finish the hit. I was never taught to apply direct flame, but I just tried it a little bit testing it on just a small piece just to see Bc I've seen a couple people smoking do it and blow out a decent amount of smoke, whereas I barely blow out any smoke it seems (which I figure is Bc I'm not BURNING it, I'm VAPORIZING it and also holding it in and absorbing the vapor, same as holding in an ecig hit). I think I'm doing it the right way, and you are not supposed to apply direct flame to the rock and burn it, you are supposed to vaporize it, that's how I was taught by my friends uncle who had been smoking for many, many years and the crack we used to get there was way better than I've had here in Chicago.
