View Full Version : Shooting alcohol straight in the blood?

I was wondering if someone wants to get drunk really fast and cheap and specially if doesn't like the taste of alcohol, would shooting up in the arm clean alcohol get the drunk feeling much faster than drinking lots of beer???

Would that be a safe way to do it and if so, why nobody is doing it??

seems like it would damage the veins. Wouldn't it burn and scar them?

Injecting straight alcohol into ones vein would kill a person I'd think or at least make them very sick. Alcohol takes time to digest and enter into your bloodstream which is doing a little at a time over a period of time.

What happened to administering alcohol by aerosol? It seems like a small amount gets people that fast drunk sensation and they recover quickly. I'm not a fan of inhaling anything myself but this might be the ticket.

People do that sometimes and they say they got drunk quickly. I tried a few times inhaling a drop of alchohol with my nose but could not do more because it is really painful.

Some states ban alcohol inhalers, I guess for the very reason of being more effective to get drunk. Probably less money for the state from alcohol tax...

Yes you can inject it, and it will get you drunk much quicker. It is very bad for you. But not necessarily any worse than injecting any other drug. Why don't people do it? Well, cause its a lot easier to drink it.
I have heard of people who, because of years of drinking, have done extensive damage to their mouth, throat, and stomach and are no longer able to absorb alcohol efficiently from their stomach. So they do what steve100 was talking about and give themselves alcohol enemas. It wouldn't surprise me if some of them also use Intravenous methods to get their fix. I think the biggest problem with it would be getting the needles. The other problem with it would be being able to give yourself a shot while you are drunk or detoxing. It would be far too difficult.

Lastly, it would be much more dangerous. When alcohol is drank, your body is able to metabolize some of it before it has any effect on you. That is why just one shot or a few sips don't get you drunk. However, injecting it directly into the bloodstream would bypass this effect and make all of it absorbable, thus making it much easier to OD.

Actually it depends on the concentration whether it is worse than drinking. Direct injections of course are more effective than letting it pass through your cells. But if you adjust the ethanol concentrations accordingly, the effect should be roughly the same (minus the effects of whatever else is in the beverage). The amount of alcohol in the breath is not really that dependent on the way of the alcohol intake, btw. Injected ethanol will also be detected via breath tests (as it passes to the lungs).

You wouldn't believe some of the things I have seen and heard...

At all the treatment centers that I have worked at, we have to keep alcohol wipes away from clients, and monitor their use of it. Cause they have been known to horde them and suck on them.
Other things we have to monitor:
Various extracts/ Vanilla extract, peppermint extract etc.
Mouth wash
butane lighters
Ping pong bals
hair spray
cough syrup
various glues
paint
redi-whip
coricidin
The list goes on and on...


I saw a client once roll up tobacco, drano, and coffee grains into a cigarette and smoke it.

If you take a ping pong ball and puncture it and breath in the stuff inside of it and hold it in for a while, it gets you high. But not for very long, but it works if you are an addict and you need a high.

Funny thing is most treatment centers don't even know about this, and most of them have ping pong tables.

I wouldn't call it desperation. Its a disease, and the people are sick. Very sick. Most of them want help, and want to quit, they just don't know how. Usually by the time they get to treatment, they have tried quitting on their own many times, but just aren't able to.

Yeah I know. My ex had a drinking problem that came and went. He stayed sober only so long, before it took over again. I think after that he just gave up.

It is something that is hard to understand that doesn't have an addiction.
I have a hard time understanding it, because I never smoked and rarely drink.

I guess it's easy to come down on someone, when you don't go through what they are. It's not something you fully get I guess until you are in their shoes.

The alocohol has more of an effect when inhaled, and the residual amount left in the body after use is lower, therefore it's harder to detect, and limits set for consumption via drinking not relevant. That's the problem.

Isopropyl-alcohol is somewhat more toxic than ethanol (and you get aceton once it is in the liver). But I actually do not think that they put something in as in ethanol (e.g. methyl ethyl keton) to make it more undrinkable.

Alcohol takes time to digest and enter into your bloodstream which is doing a little at a time over a period of time.

Hmm, not really. Alcohol (ie. ethanol) doesnít need to be digested. It can be absorbed from the small intestine as is. The rate of absorption is influenced by the presence of other food stuffs. On an empty stomach the ethanol is immediately absorbed and the full amount enters the blood steam very quickly.

Blood from the digestive tract (and, hence, nutrients absorbed from ingested material) travels via the hepatic portal vein to the liver, the major detoxifying organ of the body. So, ingested alcohol travels through the liver before it reaches the systemic circulation. A percentage of the ingested alcohol is metabolized during this first-pass through the liver.

If an equivalent amount of alcohol is intravenously injected or inhaled, the full amount will go directly into the systemic circulation, thus having a greater effect than the equivalent ingested amount.

The metabolism of ethanol takes place at a fixed rate that cannot be altered by drinking coffee or taking cold showers or any other external activity.

It is really the whole procedure attached to the addiction that really makes it an addiction. After 30-40 years an alcoholic may be satisfied shooting alcohol into themselves but it is not likely.

Thats not entirely true. Long term chronic alcoholics don't give a shit about how they get their fix, as long as they get it. Alcohol is one of the worst things to withdrawal from. It can actually kill you.
The rituals, or procedures attached to addictions are much more common with drug use. Most drug addicts are high before they actually ingest the drug. Some heroin users will shoot baby laxative when they can't score, just to perform tat ritual.

I don't think so. Directly in the vein the alcohol enters the blood system right away, no digesting. My guess is that you can get drunker faster that way, but again, not enough study is aviable....

Denatured alcohol is just that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denatured_alcohol

It's ethanol, but they add stuff to it to make it undrinkable, so it can be sold as a cleaner. Otherwise you'd have to buy it at the liqueur store.

Interestingly enough, shooting Jack Daniels straight in the vein hits about 10 times harder than a good dose of Heroin. Give it a try if you're that curious. Otherwise, I'd suggest hitting a few 12 step meetings.

The advantage of taking alcohol via the ass or injection is that you dont get the vomit response. Most people get very sick and throw up if they have to much alcohol. This is because the stomach tells the brain that the is something wrong and please get rid of anything in it. Hence the feeling of nausea and the emptying of the stomach via the mouth.. Not pleasant..

But then alcoholics have high tolerance for this response and generally dont have to consume it via these desperate techniques.

Just say no to drugs... he he he....;):m:

The sale of Lysol and other aerosol, alcohol-based cleaners is a cottage industry on Indian reservations.

The stuff is bought by the pallet and taken on to reservations, they put the stuff in containers, hubcaps, bowls, etc, let the ammonia and other ingredients evaporate off a little and drink it.

Wreaks havoc on the body.

Injecting stuff into your veins is much less safe then swallowing stuff.

It would have a faster onset, but not that much faster. By the time you set up your gear and find a vein, you'd probably be already drunk if you'd just slammed a few JDs to start with.

You wouldn't need much - 10cc pure alchohol injected would give you a BAC of about 0.2% (four times the legal limit in Australia).
You also can't just squirt it in - that would sting like a mofo and scar up your veins. You would need to either dilute it well, or trickle it in over a minute or two.



IV ethanol can actually be used medically, specifically to treat methanol or ethylene glycol poisoning. The target BAC is around 0.1%.
Do get that, they start with a dose of 800mg/kg in a 10% solution (that's 6 ml alcohol for a 75kg person, diluted in 60 ml normal saline or 5% dextrose), then set up a slow maintenance infusion.

Side effects of that treatment are what you'd expect. :)
