I would guess that if alcohol is 10-15 years, Cocaine probably 15-20. ...Read more

Can long term cocaine, heroin, and alcohol use cause specific heart damage such as atherosclerosis?

Alcohol is toxic and: potentially damages everything it touches, including hearts, but also livers, kidneys, bladders, etc. Cocaine amps up everything (its a speed), plus is also toxic, so yes, it can damage tissue, too. Heroin fills up opiate receptors and in effect, turns a lot of functions off. Whenever you have tissue damage, you are likely to get inflammation, which is one cause of arterial plaque. ...Read more
