I have found that when i smoke alot of crack my heart beats really fast and i feel like im going to have a heart attack. is this normal? I hope it is because the thought of having to stop smoking crack really makes me depressed. I love crack and cant imagine life without it.

Hi sexylatina,

Smoking crack certainly doesn't help your heart. Crack isn't your friend. Please stop smoking it.

Good Luck,

Faded Rose

Smoking crack can cause fatal heart arrhythmias (irregular beats), an enlarged heart (from the heart overworking), heart attacks and strokes (due to increased blood pressure that crack causes), not to mention the effects the drug has on friends/family.

I highly advise you to seek treatment for your addiction, especially because you are already showing signs of heart problems related to the drug.
