  5. How many lines of coke does it take to overdose?
Asked: 2018-04-04 14:24:46
In a public restroom the person in the stall next to me made sounds like she was snorting coke. It was super weird... never experienced something like this before. I left the restroom although I was reluctant to do so because all I could think about was her overdosing and that I could've done something to stop it. I enforced my personal boundaries and left thank goodness but is overdose possible in this situation? Is there a certain number of lines a person can do before they overdose from coke?

How many lines? That could be one line for one person, when their friend could take 6, and still not react too badly. Of course, take everything in moderation, but people dont really seem to know when to stop with coke. Mainly, if you stick to about 1 line every hour or so, and dont drink too much. If youre concerned about your drug use or the risk of overdose speak to a trained professional at a facility where therell be no judgment.

What makes one person overdose may not be an overdose to another person. One line could send a small person into convulsions, although its not that likely. Some people would say around 2 4 lines, but then that would probably be all at once. If you notice your heart beating fast or youre becoming restless and anxious, cool it on the coke.

It can be hard to tell how much is in a line of coke, but I do know that you can overdose on as little as 30 mg.

How long is a piece of string? Its not really possible to know how many lines it would take for someone to overdose as you see heavy users doing a few lines at a time, some people have a tolerance and some peoples bodies are just quite robust. It tests your heart every single time though.

It depends on many factors. Its estimated that 1.2 grams is the minimum lethal dose but with half a million emergency room visits per year due to cocaine , its been discovered that even 30mg could be an overdose for some people. One person might take 10mg in a line, another may take 70mg, so the person with the larger dose will reach a lethal amount more quickly but may already have a higher tolerance for it.

A common dose of coke ranges between 10-120 mg. The estimated lethal dose would be more like 1.2 g thats like 10 lines depending on fat you make them.
