in william burroughs' "junkie", he talks about his freind who alternates from arm to foot to hand and states a vein will come back in time. i'm not like some of you lucky ones who have many veins. i actually only have one visible vein that pops out in my arm (obviously the one that stretches across the back of your elbow) and i could always hit it from my biscep down to my forearm. after a real heavy habbit this summer, injecting around five times a day, it became almost imposable for me to hit a vein in my arm come mid-august. i had a number of missed shots because of this, which i'm sure didnt help. my veins became very scared and since then i have been shootin in the many veins in the top of my hands. i've heard and read that this is bad but they are doing fine so far. i've noticed the scarring in my arm veins starting to go away but i tried the other night and still couldnt get a vein to pop out in either arm. will they come back eventually? im sure the veins in my hand won't last long and i cant hit in my leg so im worried what will happen when my hands get fucked. anyone with experience or knowledge on the subject, please reply. thanks.
p.s. i don't want to shoot into my dick vein like renton in Trainspotting, the novel and i dont want to stop mainlining smack so those are not options.
