This Is Why You Shouldn’t Do Cocaine

Eyes wide open, feeling ever so amazing, brilliant, light and Superman-ish is what some try to reach (and maintain) when they start snoring line after line of this super white powder.

However, what we see from the outside isn’t always as pretty when it comes to the inside.

This highly addictive drug just doesn’t seem to be as cool when you start looking at some of its major side effects. Check out this grim image and judge for yourself!

This not so pretty picture went viral when Dentist Howard Farran posted it on his Facebook page as a warning against using blow, describing it as ‘palatal perforation due to cocaine abuse’.

The website described the damage that the drug causes on the tissue:

“Cocaine snorting damages nasal health in several different ways.

Under the influence of cocaine, the sympathetic nervous system significantly narrows blood vessels throughout the body, including the vessels that send blood to the tissues in the nasal cavity.

Consequences of this narrowing include an increase in blood pressure and a drop in the amount of blood that can easily flow through the vessels at any given time.

Without their required blood supply, the tissues in the nasal cavity start to undergo destructive changes in their normal level of function and overall health.”

Now, remember this picture if someone ever offers you some Coc, because ladies and gents, crack IS wack! ugh!
