Wash hands w/ anti-bacterial soap Take a brand new syringe and a brand new 22g 1" needle Use alcohol prep pad and swab down vial Draw correct dose of oil If you are taking a stack of different compounds in the same injection it is ok to use same needle Swap 22g needle for a brand new 25g 1" needle. You want the needle to be brand new and sharp as hell. Even piercing the rubber top dulls the needle and the injection would be 10 times the discomfort Swab down the injection site. Stab yourself. Some people like fast. I go slow. I usually do this right out of the shower. For some reason I think this makes the injection easier. I'm also squeaky lean. When I was younger and lived alone I'd put some porn on. Not sure why but it was part of the ritual. Aspirate to make sure you didnt hit a vein. Inject yourself. Pull out the dart. I then swab down the injection site with another alcohol prep pad. If you're a bleeder you can use a band-aid. I find this a little unnecessary. Enjoy the soreness for the next day.
