Short term effects include intense euphoria (Extensive and intense happiness or contentment), alertness, drowsiness, dryness of the mouth, warm or flushing skin, slowed breathing, and muscular weakness. Long term effects can be addiction, tolerance, dependence, pneumonia, infection in the heart valves and heart lining, collapsed blood veins, and decreased liver function.

Why You Should Think Twice:
First of all, thinking twice (and making the correct decision, for that matter) will save your life. It will keep you from turning your life upside down before it kills you. Even if "everyone is doing it" and it may seem "cool" it isn't. you will lose respect, money, family, and everything you ever had. And most of all your life. I can't stress that enough.
