    I wish you the best, much hope.

    -teeth from smoking (not just from insufflating)
    -blown blood vessels in face from alcoholism
    -bruises, track marks, collapsed veins
    -bloodshot eyes (pot)
    -excessive drowsiness (cocaine with drawl)
    -heroine sickness (from withdrawal)
    -burns on hands, swollen lips (from hot pipes)
