Cocaine

Cocaine

CocaineCocaine is a white substance that can be put into the body several ways.  Many users find it best to snort cocaine, but you can also smoke and inject this drug.  Any of these ways of getting cocaine in your system can be harmful to your body and internal organs.

When you snort cocaine, the drug is absorbed into the mucus membrane.  It usually takes fourteen minutes for cocaine to take effect this way and this is considered to be the most common form of taking cocaine.  Some harmful side effects to snorting cocaine include nasal decay from the lack of blood flow to the nasal cavity, nose bleeds because the cocaine aggravates the mucus membrane inside the nose, and breathing problems from the cocaine corroding the internal lining of the nose and throat.

Smoking cocaine is also one of the more popular forms of taking cocaine.  Many people smoke crack cocaine instead of powder cocaine, but some people still mix powdered cocaine in with marijuana or other drugs and smoke it in a single joint.  Harmful side effects of smoking cocaine or crack cocaine are possible cancer to the lungs, the corrosion of the throat, lungs, and mouth, and health issues that vary from addict to addict.

Heroin is the most common drug that is injected, but you can also inject cocaine by mixing it water and shooting into your veins from a needle.  This is the quickest way to get cocaine into a users system and possibly the most unsafe.  When a person injects cocaine into their system they run the risk of contracting disease from unsterilized needles, collapsing your veins from daily injection, and killing yourself from injecting the other unknown materials used to cut the cocaine before it was sold to the user.

If you are a user of cocaine you should know that no way of using this drug is safe.  Every possible option you have can lead to another health issue and you should get help for your addiction before you obtain problems that can effect you for the rest of your life.

Alcoholism is the physical and mental addiction a person obtains to alcohol over a period of time.  Many alcoholics are unaware that their addiction is has gone as far as it has until it is too late and the effects of alcoholism have taken over.  When a person is an alcoholic, it effects them in two ways physically and mentally.  Some physical issues that every alcoholic has to face include possible liver and kidney failure, stomach rupture, excessive weight gain, heart and health issues, dehydration, and problems with your internal networks and how they function.  Some mental issues that you have to deal with include memory loss and possible hallucinations.

Methamphetamine Addiction

Methamphetamine Addiction

Methamphetamine is a psychoactive stimulant of the phenethylamine and amphetamine class.  This drug is used to increase alertness, concentration and energy.  In the medical field, methamphetamine has been used to treat people young and old who live with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder), extreme obesity, treatment resistant depression, and in small doses methamphetamine has been proven to help with the effects of strokes.

Although methamphetamine has been proven to help in some ways in the medical field, meth is highly addictive.  Millions of Americans suffer from methamphetamine addiction and suffer from the side effects.  The effects of methamphetamine can be long term and short term and both physical and mental.  Some short term effects of methamphetamine use include headache, hypotension, diarrhea, twitching, a feeling of self worth and self esteem, dry mouth, paranoia, and obsessive behaviors.  These effects are nothing compared to the harmful long term effects of methamphetamine addiction.  Many methamphetamine addicts suffer from anorexia, acne, long lasting psycosis, anxiety, depression, possible heart attack or stroke, and suicide.  Even though this drug helps in small doses in the medical field, the risk of addiction is not worth the small benefits it offers.  Addicts usually remain addicts until death and thousands do not make it through treatment because they do not have the will power to overcome this strong addiction.
