Apparently this drug cause gangrene from the inside out and they say a persons skin starts to look like that of a crocodile.

    Nothing like a bit of dark humour! :rolleyes:


    But seriously apart from serious drug users, would a recreational individual take s*** like this?


    Even if l believed l was God and could fly around the room l wouldn't touch this stuff.

    But l don't take anything like this, so maybe l am not an authority.


    Need to carry a health warning, WARNING THIS PRODUCT MAY ROT YOUR FLESH, AND REDUCE YOUR LIFE EXPECTANCY TO 2 YEARS WITH PROLONGED USE!

    This is truly MONSTROUS - How DEPRAVED whoever is making this and selling it.

    Talk about your Halloween True Horror Story.

    As far as how sick do you have to be to risk your life and every dollar (junkies)? ...and when they get really bad, they wouldn't care about whatever 'risks' or 'poison/danger' warnings - they will risk it to get what they call high. It's a total death trip anyway -

    ... but gangrene from the inside out? monstrous. absolutely of all the things that have happened in the darkness this has to be getting down to the worst possible demons.

    p.s. but i hate myself for watching the video and now i am freaked out after midnight dead tired but just too SICK to close my eyes - and I watched it hours ago...

    goodnight (i hope)

    Just horrible.

    I know it's hard to tell if the the addicts would take it knowingly, but I wonder how many know that they are taking this drug.

    Edit: After leaving this post, I went to my FB page and there on top of my feed was a graphic picture of what it does. OMG, gruesome!

    The life expectancy of a Krokodil user is 2 years, if they're lucky.

    In all honesty, if you can't afford Heroin when you see what that does to people, and you'd rather something that makes Heroin users look like they eat plenty of fruit, and you rot from wherever the needle goes in, and with the crap it's made of, I reckon a bullet to the head will save the user and any family a lot of grief.

    Forgive me but this makes crack and heroin actually look like fun.

    "Only in Russia" - except now it's in America. I've heard Doctors here say they're convinced they've treated Krokodil users.

    Bloody frightening waste of time, life and energy if you ask me.

    What's wrong with beer anyway?

    Thanks, that's something I hadn't considered having watched a documentary of people making it at home in Russia. Now I'm sure unscrupulous dealers here will sell it as cheaper Heroin instead.

    That makes the thing a lot more dangerous.

    I've gotten cynical about drug use. If someone wants help I think there should be good treatment centers available.

    If someone wants to kill themselves, maybe they should be allowed to do so. A woman age 25 with 10 years of heroin use - never grew up. I think it's pollyanna to believe you can intervene in cases like that.

    I don't think the public should have to pay for multiple surgeries or ICU and other high level medical intervention for addicts who will only look for drugs the moment they are released from care.

    Yeah, I just looked up Google Images. Words fail me.
  • Profile picture of the author sbucciarel
    I did too ... the Google images and read some of the news about it.

    Horrific... and there's about 1 million users of this drug in Russia. Quite sad.

    Natural selection at it's most surreal point.

    I can't get my head around the idea that someone would intentionally use something they KNEW was going to do this. Once drug users get the word that this is zombie medicine, I think that nobody will touch it.

    That is, if their minds aren't already f^^^ed.

    I imagine that it is not being marketed as something that will rot you from the inside out, but as a really cool, cheap heroin, and cheap heroin to a heroin addict would be very appealing. I hope word gets out throughout this country so that they DO know what it can do to save some from the consequences.

    There are pictures in Google images that show people shooting up that have already started to rot. So it is not that they don't know what will happen. It is that they have to get 'high' no matter what.

    I think that is why they say that 'users' have a life expectancy of two years - because they keep using - otherwise with gangrene you just cut off the dead parts and then the person would otherwise go on living sans whatever part. Or maybe they know they have bought the farm anyway, so why not 'party' on.

    This is just so depraved I can't get over it. I don't know what to think because if it is just the 'normal' death wish they keep shooting up until they OD usually. But to permanently disfigure yourself and keep doing it just because it is 'cheap'? That is beyond any sickness I could even perceive.

    With that said the addiction part is not far off from for example even cigarettes - they tell you it could damage and kill you but we do it anyway - we take the risk and live in denial saying it won't happen to us.

    The really scary part is a powdery substance could be sold as anything - not just heroin. I am wondering if you just did it once and stopped, what it would do, for instance if you thought you were snorting cocaine or ecstacy or one of the so-called 'party drugs'...

    Yep, this reminds me of cigarette smokers who after an operation to remove a lung of toes, that have gone gangrene, the first thing they do is light up!!!!!


    You are right cigarettes and this stuff could just be a legal way, (well one is) of killing yourself off, without consciously admitting to yourself that that is what you are doing.

    Depressing!

    I am glad others have reported their Google findings, l won't go near the video or do a search!

    This. ^

    I read a great book by your fellow countryman Gregory David Peck, Shantaram. I'm sure others have too. I seem to recollect him saying that he used to smoke but doesn't anymore because he knew all he was trying to do was commit suicide slowly and subconsciously.

    Ciggys just do it a bit slower for most people than Krokodil. And less horrifically.

    I have to admit l like a good cigar, but these days with the go out in the cold if you want to puff on that, because you will give my children cancer, l haven't touched one for a few years.

    Seemed a bit silly, going into Melbourne, and smoking one, a few times a year while trying not to cough!


    Best to stay with the Cognac, heated up with a candle of course!

    Although at $25 dollars, (probably 45 pounds, if l remember my English tv programs) it isn't cheap!

    So only on special occasions.


    Smoking a ciggie should be ok, if it is rare, so your body has time to recover. Smoking a truckload, so your body can't recover is asking for nasty side effects.

    Cheaper also, l saw someone buy a half dozen packs of cigarettes a few days ago and couldn't believe that they costed hin over $200 dollars!

    Users inject it, like heroin. It then destroys the veins and skin from the inside out. If this stuff were snorted, the damage would probably be more rapidly fatal. Imagine that type of damage going directly into your nose, through your throat and into your lungs.
