    Cocaine & Nose Worries - Plz Help!!!

    I have used Cocaine now for around 6 months. I have used only at the weekend but have went on weekend binges.
    For the last month, my nose has been blocked up and I have been constantly been sneezing and having to blow my nose.
    What I found last week has put me of the drug for life. My nasal passages are much wider than they used to be and the septum (middle bit of my nose) is now much much thinner than it was.
    This has really worried me and I am never going to touch any kind of drug again. In fact it has totally scared me to the point Iam worried about it every hour of every day.
    Thatís why I have come here.
    I suppose the main question I have is will my nose get any worse even though I have have stopped using cocaine completely?
    I have done a bit of research into this and have found out that cocaine constricts blood vessels in the nose which can cause tissue in your nose to die.
    This is what I think has happened to me.
    I have bought a saline (salt water) nasal spray and am using this to help keep my nose clear and moisturised. (Someone did tell me that these nose sprays can constrict the blood vessels in your nose further) Any truth I this?.
    Also I have stopped smoking and am visiting the steam room in hope this will also help moisture my nose.
    Is there anything else I can do to help my nose.
    Please help me because I am really worried about this.
    Will my nose get any worse even though I have stopped using cocaine?

    Dude don't worry too much, if you have stopped using cocaine then your nose will heal again.

    I used to go through very heavy cocaine binges, and it got to the point where not only was I constantly having nose bleeds and blowing out blood, but even the outside parts of my nostrils were scabbed up, cut, bleeding and sore.
    I then stopped cocaine for a good few months and my nose was fine.
    I snort cocaine only occaisionally these days, and my nose is always blocked up for the next couple of days but it doesn't stay like it for long.
    Yes I'm on the dance floor, fuck that cool shit!

    Thanks buddy.
    As long as I know my nose wont get any worse now that I have stopped using it completely.
    The blockage has stopped and my nose isnt really running anymore.
    My nose however is very dry and crusty.
    Iam hoping my attempts of keeping it moisturized will work.
    Ive heard different things about using a saline nasal spray but it seems to be working.
    I was just totally paranoid that my nasal cavities would widen further and we have all heard the nightmare stories about people nasal septums collapsing.
    Is there anything else I can do that will help the condition of my nose?

    Cheers buddy.
    So you reckon the tissue av lost will come back agin now I have stopped?
    No one has really noticed my nose has changed apart from me.
    I know I need to chill but you can understand why I freaked out.
    Do you reckon its the acutally cocaine thats done this to my nose or the shit it was mixed with?!

    What she snorts in Pulp Fiction isn't Coke... it's ultra-heroin or something, she mistakes it for coke.

    Because he buys the Heroin earlier on in the film and then leaves it in his jacket pocket, which she is wearing at the time.

    the people we read about in the press... the ones who have had to have surgery (tara palmer tompkinson and Daniella westbrooke for example)... their use must have been REALLY heavy to need that, right?

    The kind of use that only having their sort of money could allow.

    cool. My experience of Coke has been mostly sitting in rooms while other people do it, and I worry about those friends I have who do it, but I am guessing their lack of money means they won't actually have this problem (with their nose).

    Yeah, their lack of money has fuck all to do with them having a problem with coke, and their noses will still be getting ruined... but nothing that extreme, it should all heal in time...

    If the effects of the coke doesn't actually physically affect you, the paranoia will.


    Best left alone if you cannot handle either, let alone both.

    I'm with everyone else and think you shouldn't worry about it really, especially now you've stopped using totally!!
    6 months isn't a long time really for you to be using!
    I've had a "columbian cold" now for most part of the last year!

    The "celebritys" we've seen with holes through there nose will have being snorting extreme amounts on a daily basis!
