Is it true sniffing too much coke will make the middle part of your nose disintegrate?

In brief: Absolutely, yes

Snorting Cocaine can and will create a hole in your septum (the wall which divides your nose into right and left halves).
If small, it may not be a problem. Larger holes cause bleeding, crusting and loss of nasal support which can lead to substantial cosmetic deformity. Just another reason not to use coke (if addiction, heart attack, stroke, etc weren't enough reasons to help you stay away ...).

In brief: Not really

But it is dangerous and many problems with your sinus passages can occur, i assume if you do a lot of Cocaine that way only bad things can happen eventually.
