Re: what is sniffing dope?

Hello

It means snorting it up the nose in some manner. Like the way people inhale the fumes from glue or paint. It idiotic, immature and dangerous. I don't know how it makes your friend feel as I have never done this... and I sure hope you never do. We may not know how it makes your friend feel, but we can know it makes this person look like an idiot as he is displaying a willingness to fry his brain on chemical fumes... a simple gateway method into actually snorting matter like cocaine into the nose. Burns out the nose tissue first and can actually burn a hole right through the nose, then eventually the brain tissues.

If I were Dear Abby, I would say it is time to lose this loser and get a new friend. However, since I am not Dear Abby and this is an addiction and recovery board, I will say that it is in your best interest to set a firm boundary with your friend and stick to it. The boundary I would suggest is "I love you as a friend. If you love me, then understand our friendship will cease if you continue to mess in any way at all with drugs of any kind, shape or manner." Mean it when you say it and follow through if the boundary is broken. If the playing around with drugs by your friend ceases and desists immediately, then celebrate. If it doesn't, then be mature and wise enough to lose the friend pronto.

With love, but distressed to a great degree with drug abuse and the pain and debilitation it causes

Re: what is sniffing dope?

"Sniffing dope" 9/10 means sniffing herion. It gives the same effect as shooting except not as intense and it does not last as long. It is the first step to shooting so I hope your frind gets help.

If it is heroin he can find a doctor online who can help. He doesn't have to go to a methadone clinic.
