cotton fever  is when u have a  little little piece of cotton fiber on the tip of the needle and  when you dont see it, it accidentally  goes into your bloodstream, causing a really  bad sicknessss

It is also from pounding the cotton to get remains of dope out theby breaking up the cotton.. the fiber runs through your blood stream and heart causing chills severe shaking You feel pretty bad for a few hours.. not as long as wd but definitely pushing the envelope.. lesa

Lesa is more on the ball with this one ... also some school of thought that its a viral thing associated with cotton ..... BUT to answer the question ..... strong withdrawal is much worse than cotton fever ... the so called cotton fever doesnt last all that long and isnt quite as intense as the withdrawals - - dont get me wrong .. its no fun .. best to stay well away from both.

Eeek cotton fever.... I had it a few times cuz I used to mash that cotton to get every last tiny molecule that might have been there. But this one time it was so bad I was having seizures and couldn't talk - oh wow it was bad. What's worse.... depends on how big the dope habit and how bad the cotton fever! Eeek I'm so glad I don't have to worry about those things anymore!!

Nicky - I had that same mindset before - "I want to stay clean but I'll probly use again". As cheesy as the saying is you really have to just take it one day at a time. Trying to look at it as a whole is pretty daunting. What you're thinking about all this will play a huge factor... try not to set yourself up. There's always support here so stick around!

Hey Nickysixx  Cattalina is right.. take it one day at a time. you can do it.. getting dope sick off and on su cks big time.. it really takes it out of us and hard on our bodies we go through a tremendous amount of stress in blood pressure and stomach issues.. not to mention the bouncing around of emotions. many of us moved to escape our environment.. Hope you stick with us.. I will look for the post.. got paid and did not score :)
