Cocaine Question

I've never done it myself and never will, I've only seen it done in the movies, but here's a question some of you might know...

Why do people rub their gums when they do it? It's like they put a finger in their mouth and rub their gums or teeth or something.

Just curious.

Rubbing in for absorption I imagine. Maybe to feel the numbness.

Cocaine is an anesthetic, causes the gum and teeth to go numb.

Why you would want this, I don't know.

To feel the numbness in your moth. It's also a good way to gauge how pure/good it is without snorting it first. Personally never cared for the teeth/gums thing, completely a waste!

Another question what are they sniffing when they are "using" cocaine in movies? I have always wondered about that and when they show someone shooting heroin.

Cocaine doesn't have a taste really. It's whatever it's cut with that you taste.

I think this is like going to the Super Bowl. It doesn't matter where you sit...you are still at the Super Bowl.
