Hi, first time poster here, just had a question, and I hope it's in the right place. From what I've read (searched for sore throat and read some of the messages there) I think that I burned my throat. It hurts like an SOB to swallow and it comes and goes. I've gargled salt water and sucked anti-septic, anethetizing cough drops for two days straight. Went to the Doc, and he said it didn't look to bad, but like I said it hurts a lot. My question is, if and when this clears up, should I look into getting myself a bong instead of a pipe? I'm a very new smoker and I think that has a lot to do with how I burned myself. Unfortunatley, I don't have the cash to drop on a Vaporizer or I'd do it... Any advice? Thanks!
