I have told people about my Ctb method and they keep telling me that it’ll be very pianful, that’ll burn in the inside because of the acid and that it’s much more painful than what’s being portrayed, Is this true ? They say you’d need precise measurements to get it painless and that the peaceful pill handbook doesn’t give the accurate ones

What people? That inherently doesn't make any sense; the definition of a salt is the neutralisation of an acid and a base. It isn't acidic, and it isn't basic either. Sodium nitrite is a salt, for the record. As long as you don't throw up and you pass out before hypoxia sets in, you'll be fine. That's what the anti-emetics are for.

As I know SN is not acid, but maybe I'm wrong. People lie a lot and about everything, just do your own research and don't trust anyone.

Hey doesn't take much researching to find that I'm pretty correct about hypoxia

Pretty sure they were talking about the first post and acid claims, not your post about hypoxia. They weren't calling you a liar.
Well, @Moonicide said that it was burning her throat and stomach just before she passed out. That's what she felt -- maybe not technically burning, burning though.
While she did say burning, she also rated the pain low. I'm wondering if it was more like a mild irritation, like heartburn. I do not believe she meant actual burning.

The majority of people have never used that word, so I'm thinking something is up to interpretation.

There are different types of hypoxia, and SN doesn't cause feelings as for suffocating. It shouldn't.

Also keep in mind acid reflux could play a role if you have it. This is often triggered with high intake of salts, so the acid may be coming from your stomach.

Well, Salt burns open flesh... It’s not acid but very potent salt

We’ve read many different accounts of people taking SN, from various sources.
The overall impression I get is that it is fairly peaceful.
I believe there will likely be some discomfort, but I don’t believe the discomfort level is too high.
I have heard it described as being like a “bad hangover”.
I believe you would go unconscious after about 20 minutes.
However, I can only state what I believe to be true, based on things I have read and things that have been posted by others. I cannot give guarantees.

Here's a recent thread that has a grid of most if not all of the anecdotes on this site from SN successes and failures. 16 anecdotes of failures, many of which address what you're asking:


Here's the documentation of Moonicide's successful attempt in which she describes the stomach burning pain as 3.5/10:


Here's her goodbye thread in which she documents herself what the process is like for as long as she can, in which she describes her symptoms including the burning:

Every method has it’s drawbacks and SN is no exception from what I observed Nausea and Headaches are likely but only last about 10-20 minutes before you’re out. Most accounts are that it’s not that bad except for a few anomalies.

Nah I know you weren't, it was just to clarify my point :)... sorry if I came across like a douche

There will be a level of discomfort with any method (unless you are taking N). That is just the nature of the beast of trying to stop your body from functioning.

If you think about how the human body works and how Methomoglobinemia works, then you'll understand what discomfort is to be expected with the SN method.

Who are these people?? And why are they harassing you? :pfff:

No offense but every sentence there makes me puzzled... SN not an acid. PPH pretty accurate. Precise SN nothing to do with pain. Etc.....

There's a guide, threads, documentation, 60 stories, etc.

doesn't take much researching to find that I'm pretty correct about hypoxia
Just to clarify SN is anemic hypoxia -- tissue suffer lack of oxygen (not lungs/body/brain)

My SN arrived, it's in the plastic bottle, the lid is ok, but inside is a rock...Even before I opened it I did shake it a bit and every time I do it my eyes and nose start to burn, not horribly, but it's unpleasant...I don't know how is that even possible.

Allergy maybe. What color is that rock?

Maybe not. Clumping is normal if it doesn't have anti caking agents in it. Think of how table salt acts. It'll clump into rocks if exposed to moisture in the air.

Eventually, but hard to say when. If you were going to use it soon, I wouldn't worry. But to store, I'd get a fresh bottle.

It's like this one gain in potentiality, I mean burning through a closed bottle...I know that on some customs they iradiate all food and this is for food, maybe it reacted in a strange way, I'll put it in the dark to see if it glows

The burning is concerning. I haven't really read any accounts of that. Either you're highly sensitive or it may have oxidized. If I were you, I'd replace it probably.
