dc.description.abstract Risk of blood borne virus among injecting drug users is high and is a significant challenge for public health efforts. Mindlessness/mindfulness theory provides an alternative lens through which to understand social phenomena. Interview transcripts of 32 current and former injectors were explored for evidence of mindless injecting (or automatic behaviour). Mindlessness in injecting practices can be important as opportunities to reduce injecting risk can emerge from understanding `expert` approaches to injecting. Further work is required to generate fuller understandings of this construct on injecting drug use and to incorporate carefully and sensitively this tool into health promotion efforts. en_US
