Hi there! My younger sister has an addiction to snorting oxy 80's. She on minimum snorts two pills a day. I was wondering if anyone knew any good sources for some information. I'm looking to scare her in hopes of helping her kick the drug. Is it true that you can actually rot out your sinus cavity from abusing oxy 80's? Any information on the long term effects of abusing this drug would be great! Thank you for your help!
You are correct. Sniffing drugs WILL (Not maybe) rot her sinus cavity basically creating a hole between the center or her nostril. Sniffing drugs can also kill you by causing a severe pneumonia do to the small particals that enter the lungs. When it comes to scarring an addict it's hard and most likely won't work (I know this because I'm also an addict). I would recommend talking with Law Enforcement and see what they can do. Maybe a night in jail will make her change her mind and show her that it's illegal to do what she's doing. The court will most likely make her go to rehab and take UA's weekly. This is what happened to me and it saved my life. If I was never arrested and sent to jail for a night I wouldn't be clean today. It shows you what your life has turned into and what you need to do to avoid having it happen again. If you look on either na.org or aa.org you will find some resources that can help your sister and yourself (An addiction doesn't just effect the addict, it effects the whole family.) I hope this information has helped you. Feel free to contact me privately anytime if you have questions or concerns. Good luck!
