I very rarely take coke (2 or 3 times a year?) but when I do, its usually with alcohol. Saw this today and posted it as an FYI :

    Cocaine itself is definitely linked to heart problems and heart attacks, it raises the blood pressure, thickens the blood and tightens the veins - so you've got thicker blood being forced through smaller tubes at higher pressure. Its a tripple mix of heart risks.
