I really am not trying to be political here. I just want to know what KIND of sniffing is the result of cocaine use? Is it a different kind of sniffing or is it just a little sniffing like a little cold? I think it's recognizable, but I'm not sure how one recognizes it.
Are you asking because of the way Donald Trump is sniffling in the debates? It sounds like that. It would also contribute to his inability to sit still. At least, that's "what I've been hearing."
Wrong forum for this post. Should be here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topical
People who are sniffing as the result of cocaine use are odorus, and usually have bloody stools. That's how you tell.
Jean Bakula, Oh! Oops. I didn't know there was a topical forum. Next time. Thanks!
Jean, I just would like to know since no reporter seems to be adressing that. But I'd rather keep the discussion about any one in general since there's such intensity of emotion in the election. I'm just curious. I'm assuming I must be wrong in wondering since no one I heard tonight on CNN is mentioning it. He might have allergies or a cold he can't shake. I don't want my bias to color a valid question.
It's hard to assess, but drugs were very prominent "back in the day" when I was growing up, and those small, sniffles, added to the way a person can't be still and has to keep moving or doing something, is normally a sign of cocaine use.
I don't suffer from allergies, but believe those who do sneeze a lot more, and they don't have to pace around constantly. I am not trying to demonize anyone, promise.
From what I've observed, cocaine users tend to sniff more frequently and their sniffs are smaller, than someone (like me) who suffers from allergies.
Allergies are the worst. I used to be allergic to ragweed, but there isn't much of that in southern CA. The thing I couldn't stand was the itchy throat. I'll have to travel back to MN in ragweed season (September it used to be) to find out. Wait, I don't think I want to
If you want to see a classic case of sniffing symptoms shortly after cocaine use just watch Donald during the presidential debates. He isn't fully aware of doing it and blames the mic but the frequency of the uncontrollable sniffs is a textbook case of the cocaine sniffles. He's got the "coke sniffin blues". The sniffer is in denial about the humiliating public sniffs and pretends no one notices like a preschool kid who believes shutting their eyes makes them invisible.
Oztinato, Very interesting! I doubt we'd find classic examples on youtube, but who knows? I should look, but gotta go write a novel instead. Oooh, ooh, a coke sniffing President - lots of plot lines. Did you know that the American Sign Language sign for Coke-a-Cola is thought to have originated from the sign for cocaine? "According to my Dad--Georgia born & raised (Georgia being the home of said beverage)--when he was growing up in the 30's & 40's, the slang term for a "coke" was "dope"--as in, "Give me a dope". [Presumably this was a reference to the cocaine that was apparently part of the original formula.] Maybe that "hearing" slang term found its way into sign language as well." http://www.lifeprint.com/asl101/pages-signs/c/coke.htm
I think his nose is just small. Its hard to get enough air as he talks. For some reason he is the habit of taking air through his nose instead of his mouth. He has enough problems. Why do we have to Guess about this?
I think it's called "allergies" Just because someone sniffles doesn't make them a drug addict.
That's what I'm wondering. People wouldn't care anyway, I guess.
I also addressed you, instead of theraggededge about the topical posting. This election is making me CRAZY!!!! Today on CNN they suggested it was nervousness. Time will tell or NOT
Is trying to get hubbers to post in the correct, topical forums regarding the subjects of their posts. It's a good idea, we all have developed bad habits that are hard to overcome.
Other politicians have admitted to doing coke, the original Coca Cola actually had real coke from coca leaves it. You can still find old trays and promotional items that say, "Coke refreshes you best" That's why, it had real coca in it. This was before 1900. George W. Bush has admitted to use, as has President Obama. Back in college though, not as Presidents.
Trump has spoken out about a serious anti drug stance with his children when they were young, so he probably had a cold or some kind of sinus infection. It could be possible he was using, sniffles and restlessness are signs, but he was most likely nervous, he had planned to bring women on stage at the debate who had affairs with Bill Clinton. The moderators forbid it. This election is crazy.

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.
