    Default Have you ever popped any substance in your veins?

    Which way is correct "Have you ever popped any substance in your veins"? or "Have you ever injected any substance in your veins"

    Hi Adriano, and welcome the the forums.


    "Popped" is incorrect. (Could you tell us where you got that one? We talk about "popping pills" but never as something that is injected.)

    Have you ever injected anything into your veins?

    (It sounds like you're asking about drug use: Have you have taken intravenous drugs outside of a doctor's care?)

    No. I dont take any intravenous drugs. I just had some doubts about using "pop in" to inject something into veins. So you're telling me that verb "pop in" can not be used for that purpose, right? by the way, Im a clean guy

    I wasn't worried about your own drug habits, don't worry!

    I was suggesting other ways you might want to ask the question.

    Right, don't use "pop" to talk about injecting things. People who take pills (put them in their mouth) are said to "pop pills." We say that even in non-illegal uses: I'm going to pop a couple Advil (a brand of pain reliever you can buy in the store) and I'm sure my headache will be better in no time.
