    Snorting Meth

    Question:
    Does snorting meth do any physical damage to the nasal passages or any other part of the body involved in snorting? If so are these damages permanent?

    Answer:
    When a person snorts meth, the chemicals and vapors dry out the mucous membranes in your nose. This can cause sores and infection, eventually long term snorting of meth damages the cartilage that separates the nostrils. This is very serious, so yes meth does do physical and sometimes permanent damage to the nasal passages.

    Because the chemicals in meth are so toxic they eventually damage the user's nasal passages and the individual has to start smoking or injecting the drug. Remember that methamphetamine is so toxic and dangerous eventually no matter how a person chooses to abuse meth it damages the user physically, mentally and emotionally.

    I am wondering how often a person would have to snort methamphetemine to experience damage to their nasal cavaties? Is this typically only experienced in people with serious addictions(everyday users)?

    To help answer your question Jen, swim was hooked on snorting meth for 3 months every day I'm talking at least a gram of glass every four or five days finally with help he quit, he went to the doctor afterwards and had a hole burned through his nostril it all really depends on the potency of the meth but swim was on some very strong and dangerous product, that may be why it burned so quickly. To the other people out there I want y'all to know it is possible to quit yea sure it's hard but all you've really got to do is look at what you're doing to yourself and those who love you...meth is a disgusting drug, on the same level as crack cocaine or heroin. Think about that next time you go to hit that pipe or a line or when you flick that needle, you're killing yourself and all your loved ones.
