| | Re: Cocaine use - sniffing/sneezing/nose irritation?
Yes, yes and yes... Prolonged use of cocaine will cause sniffing, sneezing and nose irritation.
Constant use of cocaine damages the membrane of the nose and causes a weakening of the septum, and total disintegration of the septum may occur. (basically your nose falls apart) yuck!
Nose bleeding is very common when sniffing cocaine. The euphoria and energy experienced in the "high" are eventually replaced by nausea, irritability, restlessness and paranoia in prolonged use.
Most cases of prolonged cocaine use have resulted in the development of paranoid psychoses, and some cases have been reported to be irreversible.
