    I've only been smoking for a few months, (first time w/tweak was last July), but I've worked up a couple remedies to common meth smoking puzzlements.
    One thing is for those w/pipes that have small bowls and large carbs, or anyone who tends to roast their finger when trying to keep those pretty vapors from escaping, I've found placing a band-aid on my pinky works wonders to protect my finger while carbing the pizzo. If you hold the stem w/your 1st finger on top and thumb on the bottom and curl your middle and ring fingers out of the way, u can use ur pinky to cover the carb while rolling the pipe without hindering your range of rolling.
    Secondly, I discovered a cosmetic sponge stuffed into those tiny altoids tins (or whatever suits you, a jar lid, a compact etc. ) when moistened with warmish water (I've cracked about 3 pipes recently using what I thought was 'room temp' water which was apparently too cool ) . Anyway, keep this tin on ur lap or desktop or wherever and after each hit roll it kinda like a stamp on a stamp pad and if you do it right you'll not only have a cool(er) unblemished pipe, but shit will have spread instead of puddling as u roll it along the sponge. Make sure the sponge is at least moist otherwise it could just melt and stick to your pipe . I keep mine so with some pressure on the sponge, a little water rises up.
    Also, what do you guys keep your pipes in to keep them cushioned and safe, what about your other smoking implements? I keep my smoking kit in a pencil pouch, the pipe in a piece of washcloth (also absorbs heat well) w/a make shift pocket so I can just stick it in the pocket and roll it up in a hurry. I also keep an adjustable, refillable electric lighter and a bic (just in case ), as well as a tiny vial w/rubbing alchohol and a few q-tips for spot-cleaning between bowls, a band-aid, my altoids thingy, and of course the all important straw.

    Sorry for the long post but you guys know how it does, eh?

    I usually had my stuff in my glasses case. Which was hard, so it couldn't flex and snap pipes. They also has a little snap close pouch in the case, intended for the magnetic sunglasses attachment, but used quite often as a convenient place to store methamphetamine.

    Re: Tips for smoking meth 
    When i do carry a pipe, i wont carry it long enough and make sure it stays safe in something. Ill just carry it, use it, get rid of it. Ill just hold it in my hand in my pocket to make sure its safe. Better then nothing i guess?

    So did I, until my grandma found it (played it off that I had given it to a friend a while back and they asked me to carry it that day bcause they had no pockets, ah the joys of denial ). My only glass case w/a flap is too short to hold any pipe I've come across so far, but its a damn good idea lol.

    The glasses case idea is very clever, I use a digicam case to hold my goods when I'm at home. Its a bit big, but it protects my pipe and separates my tools from my stash (that way my crystals don't get crushed by my lighters) I usually carry 5 lighters (to rotate so they dont overheat) straw scoop (essential!) small mirror and razor blade, a few straws, a few cotton balls, my ez test kit (best way to make sure ur gettin good product!) some xanax (for the comedown) and a bit of weed (also for comedown) magnesium tablets (to keep tolerance down) and a dozen other things that I can't think of at the moment. I usually just wrap my pipe in a piece of cloth and store my straw scoop and stash together in a small drawstring bag with a few bic mini's when I'm on the go.

    I've taken a break from doing tweak....things got weird when I started seeing things that arent' really there....usually I love this kinda stuff, but when it makes u mistake a fire hydrant for a person, thats when its time to put down the pipe

    I was also gettin pissed off about the amp shrinkage problem (at least it never happened when my girlfriend came over, that would've been embarassing) Anyone know if there is a way to get rid of amp shrinkage? Any help would b appreciated. Not that I'd need it now, but for future tweaking y'know? I hate amp shrinkage (same thing happens when I roll) Its one of the most annoying side effects of speed (that and jaw clench) Jaw clench pisses me off, as it makes me bite my cheeks to bits. I've tried remedying this with a mouth guard to chew on, but I end up gagging whenever the thing is in my mouth for longer than a minute. Gum doesnt help much either, cuz it only lasts so long until I wear it out and chew it to paste.

    I still haven't finished that 8 ball of tweak I bought awhile back (I got about a 2.5 grams left) I found out that I got a real good deal on that ball too, as other people are charging $300^ for an 8ball around here. I'm not willing to pay that high for 3.5 grams (that is the correct ammount in an 8ball, right?)

    I need to find where the hell I can get pyrex pipes. My newest pipe just got a whole near the bottom, and my old pipe's got a huge carb from getting chipped (its all sharp around the edge of the carb, so its risky to carb the pipe now) I need to find a shop that doesn't sell thin pipes (or start makin my own)

    Happy tweaking everybody

    Is it strange that I thought you were a female Ninjetic?

    Yes an eight ball is 3.5 grams.

    For the mouth sores, drink more fluids. Dehydration is probably a major factor in the cheek eating.

    And if you decide to blow your own pipe out of thick glass. Mapp Gas is a must.

    If you have some really fine-tipped tweazer, it makes it easier for spending a couple hours on the floor looking for shards in the carpet.

    Just scanned over this whole thread again for the billionth time lol, finally tried gargling w/salt water as per crystalcallas' instructions, felt like heaven to my mouth, having tweaked the past few night w/out gum (kept meanin to get it, but it just kept slipping my mind!). Anyways, I was wondering if anyone could post a link to a good guide to making a needle lighter, the cryst-o vap link doesn't seem to work, and I've not had much success at following the directions on sixthseal.com. Also Im curious to know who prefers to pack their glass in the carb of the pipe or the stem? I usually pack the stem, because either way some often falls off the tip of the straw, and at least in the stem you don't lose it completely, whereas trying to herd miniscule glass crumbs into a small carb with your finger so you don't waste them is a pain too. My current pipe has a decent sized carb, slightly larger than Haze's reccomended O key, but not a gaping crater either, and i've found that by taking a slurpee straw (the kind w/the scoop at one end) and cutting a small piece of slightly wider straw (preferably clear, jamba juice has sturdy ones) and sliding it over the slurpee one it does a pretty neat trick. You stick the scoop end into your baggie, vial, milk jug, whatever, and positition your desires amount on the scoop, then carefully slide the clear straw towards and over the scoop part, rolling it (and the shit) in the clear straw. Since you're probably already confused, the basic premise is that it allows you to scoop larger amounts than a reg straw, and the clear "shield" helps prevent any from dropping on its way to Mr. P. Also any residue is eaisier to clean since its a scoop vs. a sraw. One last thing, does anyone have any tips on blowing a double bubble pipe? They look schweet but all my local shops just have plain one bulbs. I have access to both rose tubes and those air freshener vials as well as a semi melted but functional torch. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, sayonara fellow sketchers!!!

    I usually pack thru the stem with a straw or without a straw if its a new piece. My hands are a little too shaky sometimes to fit glass into the carbhole =P

    *on a sidenote, smoked couple bowls earlier today then got suprised with a pill of E by my gf. Read that tweek might take some effects away from the pill but had a really good roll (red pandas ,or pink bears or someshit)

    On a side note. Dont vacume your carpet.

    I just stick the stem of the pipe directly into the bag--
    Load, give the stem a slight tap and fire and roll...

    for shake i use a rolled up c-note (camel cash) to dig, and hold my index over the bottom hole. tilt it over the carb and pour make sure to do it over a cd-case or paper towel, incase some spills and bump it!!

    I searched this thread for the answer to my question to no avail. I know some people who insist "blue-flaming" (where you have the lighter on a low setting so the bottom 3/4 or so of the flame is blue rather than orange, and you basically heat the pipe with the lighter nearly touching the bottom and the blue flame has spread out and bathed most of the bubble. It starts smoking. .. you know the drill) is the best way to smoke shit. Althougth I know the blue flame is cooler than orange flame, it seems like using this method might burn the shit, I've tried it and it does start smoking faster, rather than having to poke at it forever from an inch away, but am I incinerating good tweak doing this? Would it be better to use the blue flame to get it started then pull back, or to just stay back altogether?

    Thumbs up
    If you've got nice shards, pack a decent amount in and use a jet lighter..light it for about 2-3 seconds and stop and start smoking...way bigger hit than a normal bic lighter will give you.

    Just be careful its easy to burn the shit. Don't keep lighting if it bubbles up.


    So big the rush, it'll make you gag

    I dont know much about smoking meth, but I do know a blue flame burns at a HIGHER temp than orange/red flames. Much hotter. (For example look at a bic, then a welding flame)

    Then why is it when you turn a gas stove on low (as when simmering rice) the flame is blue, and when you turn the flame to the higher settings its orange on the upper part of the flame? Also, what does everyone use to cool their pipes down between hits?

    The blue flame is caused by a clean combustion reaction. As an example (instead of using methane, we're using Hydrogen, or H2, for simplifacation)
    2 H2+O2+initial heat(flint or spark)= 2 H20 + energy (light, heat, sound). When the flame is low on the stove, there is ample O2 to give to the chemical reaction and burns at about 1,700C, when the flame is bigger, the H2O it produces starts to smother the flame ontop (more impurities, as well as less oxygen able to aid the reaction as it's being used up underneath it before it can reach the top of the flame) and produces a orange/red/yellow flame which burns at about 1,000C.

    The hottest part of a flame is at the tip of the inner white/blue flame. Think about it, jet lighters burning 2 inches from your finger will burn your finger to hell, a bic 2 inches from your finger can be held there for a few seconds with minimum discomfort.

    edit: the reason the blue flame is low heat on a stove is because its a small flame further from the pan, even though the orange/red flame burns at a colder temp (relatively speaking) it is bigger and is closer to the pan.

    I have to add though, if you add bowls that are too small, it burns your shit black/brown. But if you pack in too much you waste the shit. 0.2-0.3g's are pretty average, good sized bowls.

    Also, after you inhale the meth, keep sucking in oxygen, it'll fuck you up more.

    It does, and it also gets rid of a lot of the bad taste.
