To answer your first question and I am unfortunately addict that has been struggling with this addiction for about three years now to answer your second question I have only been using the IV method for about six months there was a period of time where I had to reuse some syringes that were used only once about three times each which I know it is not recommended. at shortly after is when I started to notice these hard spots appear where I missed the vein or something I did that I'm unaware of. I read up that these hard spots do not soften up overtime that they could possibly be clots. Also My father and I have varacotise veins however you spell it. They're located around my ankles and feet and some are around my knees and on top of my thighs.

Brief Answer:
best thing is avoid intravenous route

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Dear friend,
Stop using intravenous route.Apart from vein damage there is chances that you may get HIV. As far as hardness of vein is concerned it will take few months. Use hot water fomentation. Also application of thrombofobe ointment is useful.
Try to get rid of the addiction rather then finding new veins for injections. Let me know if you want to ask any other question.
Thanks.
