The Racket Report – Butt Chugging Cough Syrup: A Disturbing New Trend Among Teens
A ‘Butt Chugger’ is one who consumes alcohol through his or her anus. The vessel for this alcohol enema can be a fun all or a soaked tampon. Sound disgusting? There’s a point to it! Alcohol is absorbed into your bloodstream faster through your rectum than through your mouth. Also, you don’t get the smell of alcohol on your breath.
But teens who want to experience a different type of ‘High’ are taking this trend to a whole different level.
‘Butt Chugging Cough Syrup.’ It turns out that dextromethorphan (DXM) – A cough suppressant commonly found in over-the-counter cold medicines like Robitussin and Dimetapp – produces an almost hallucinogenic high when chugged in large doses. It can also lead to loss of motor control, dizziness, seizures and hallucinations, among other serious problems.
And the poor girl in this photo? We are not sure who she is, but imagine walking into a party and this is the first thing you see! And remember kids, once it’s on the internet, it’s ALWAYS on the internet. While the girls identity is a mystery, she did post this comment on her Twitter feed, “It’s hard to be a good wife and a good mom and a good Christian.” I bet it is.
