Every good druggie has their go-to kit. Their little stash of supplies that streamline the process of prepping and administrating their drug. Naturally, this is done because drug users are impatient and want to cut down on the amount of time not having their DoC in their system.
One of the most famous drug kits of all time would probably be Kurt Cobain’s heroin hit. A photo of this notorious kit was posted on the Junk Philosopher Blog. The author does a very good job of making observations about Kurt’s style of use. It’s definitely worth a read. Lucky for Kurt though, he had the luxury of using disposable needles, unlike our junky forefathers who used those syringes from my last post.
I laughed a little while reading it because I’ve thought thousands of times that there is not a shadow of a doubt that my heroin kit is owned by a girl. It’s one of those reusable grocery bags, but it’s orange and white with flowers all over it. Inside I have different supplies each in their own separate cute bag (one will bubble bees, a green leather bag with a large white hand-stitched “H” on it, you get the point). One bag for cottons, one for cookers, one for syringes, one for alcohol pads and a large mesh one for miscellaneous things like lighters, breakdown powder, syringe clippers, burners, tweezers, spoons, rubber bands, twisty ties, matches, suck up syringes and so forth. The bag also holds essentials like a belt, paper towels and lighter fluid or acetone (to light a fire in a burner, rather than using up all the fuel in a disposable lighter) There is also a separate kit for travel that includes two individual sized syringe cases, so you can pre-fill a syringe and carry it safely with you, and a bag that can keep your medicine cool while on the road. It’s amazing how much cool stuff you can find at drug stores that cater to diabetics. So yeah, it’s a pretty girly kit. But it’s well organized and always well stocked. I’ve also got a box that was made for me where a mirrored top flips open and lies flat for doing lines, along with compartments for a razor blade, a vile, etc. Another box for all pot related supplies and joint rolling tools. And finally, for all other drugs and drug paraphernalia – a safe that stays out of site from any less scrupulous visitors who might not be able to control themselves if they knew about all the good shit lying around.
So what do you need to have in your kit? Well that’s going to depend on what drug you most commonly take. But I’ve done some heavy lifting for you. Below are some of the more common drug kits. Browse the pictures below and maybe you’ll get some good ideas for a kit of your own! Because sure you could buy a pre-packed drug kit. But a real drug kit should reflect the personality of the user.

So which kit resonated with you? How do you keep your supplies? Is your kit more like Kurt’s, or does it have a distinctly “you” feel? You can always take pictures and share them with us. I’d love to see the kinds of kits you guys use 🙂
