Sharing equipment like a meth pipe increases your chances of being exposed to an infection. Tiny amounts of blood from a cut or cracked lips can transmit hepatitis C or hepatitis B. It is a good reason to consider testing for hepatitis C and B even if you shared the pipe only once. Knowing your Hepatitis status is a good step in protecting your health and the people around you.
Harm reduction practices recommend never sharing your drug use equipment. So a safer way to use with your friend is to each use your own pipe and/or mouthpiece every time. There are several places across Winnipeg that distribute free harm reduction supplies for safer drug use. Here is some useful information about safer meth use kits.
