    It depends on the narcotic in question but to put in vaguely drugs can slow down the heart and slow breathing rates etc. Also you could choke on your own vomit. As with alcohol long term use can cause liver damage (cirrhosis), cancer and so forth. Also if you are under the influence you are much more likely to be involved in dangerous situations. a Hope this helps

    as far as I'm aware it causes your organs to shut down. Your heart slows to a stop and you can't breath. You may choke on your vomit and other organs will fail and cause alot of pain and suffering.
    basically a slow and miserable death. I expect you will likely fall unconscious at some point but from what I've heard its not the peaceful way people think it is.

    why are you asking by the way?
