Is doing 1 gram of cocaine a month very bad for you?

I'm mid thirties and have been doing this for years.I live an otherwise healthy lifestyle. I eat well, have a full time job, no money issues, exercise regularly and only drink in moderation. I never do more than this within a month so that part I can control. But l'm aware of the health risks. Is what I'm doing really that bad?

    Any amount of cocaine, or any street narcotic is harmful to you and potentially deadly

    only if you dont like having 

    Extreme sensitivity to touch, sound, and sight

    Intense happiness

    Anger/irritability

    Paranoid feeling

    Decreased appetite

    People who use cocaine often may also have more serious side effects and health problems, like:

    Headaches

    Convulsions and seizures

    Heart disease, heart attack, and stroke

    Mood problems

    Sexual trouble

    Lung damage

    HIV or hepatitis if you inject it

    Bowel decay if you swallow it

    Loss of smell, nosebleeds, runny nose, and trouble swallowing, if you snort it

    Depression

    Anxiety

    Fatigue

    Trouble concentrating

    Increased hunger

    Cravings for the drug

    Nightmares

    Chills, nerve pain, muscle aches

    A cocaine overdose is more difficult to treat. Physical signs include:

    Increased sweating, body temperature, or heart rate

    Trouble breathing

    Chest pain

    Nausea or vomiting

    Confusion, seizures, tremors

    Watch for these mental signs of overdose, too:

    Anxiety

    Panic

    Paranoia

    Hallucinations

    Delirium

    An overdose often leads to a stroke or heart attack. An ER doctor will test for those conditions and try to treat them first. He may also use medication to treat other complications you have.

    There are many possible health effects and no one experiences all of them.  There's no way to know how its affecting you solely by the amount of coke you use.   The most common ill effects involve changes in mood, sleep, personality, and memory.   You may or may not notice if any of these changes have occurred.  Then there's a long list of physical problems that can develop, particularly cardiovascular and neurological  damage that is not always apparent until damage is well-advanced.  Perhaps the biggest risk now days is the risk of additives.   There are so many designer drugs that are much cheaper to produce than cocaine that street cocaine frequently is mixed with other drugs to fool people into thinking they are getting very pure cocaine.   Outbreaks of cocaine deaths in the US occur several times each year due to cocaine being laced with heroin or fentanyl, and thousands of ER visits from adverse reactions to a variety of designer drugs added to cocaine.  One thing i have seen in nearly all longterm cocaine users - they look much older than their chronological age.

    Cocaine is a very dangerous long term drug! What happens is when you do coke, it goes into your heart valve and winds up scaring it, making it hard for the heart to beat regularly. Too much cocaine, will wind up with you having a fatal cardiac episode in a few short years.
