Cocaine and Crack-Cocaine use have been on the rise in the U.S. since 2013, at least partially due to it’s wide availability across the country.

The relationship to cocaine usually starts out as recreational use. However, Cocaine is one of the most addictive drugs due to the rapid progression of tolerance, where users quickly find they need to do more and more to get high. One of the most expensive substance abuse habits, Cocaine addiction often causes financial turmoil. This expense causes many users to turn to Crack-Cocaine instead of Cocaine, because it is cheaper.

Cocaine abuse can leave the user broke, isolated, and desperate. It can lead to organ problems and failure, chronic cognitive deficits like poor motor skills, confusion, impaired judgement, and loss of memory. Cocaine users are much more prone to domestic incidents, uncontrollable anger, and psychosis.

Do you have an addiction to Cocaine?

Cocaine addiction can creep up on someone, but often leaves destruction in its wake. We can often feel the illusion that we have it under control, but from the outside and to others, we are clearly spiraling. Cocaine tends to feed the ego and convince us that we perform better with it, but once things start to fall apart, our relationships erode, and our finances begin to shrink, we begin to see that Cocaine abuse might not be serving us.

Here are some warning signs that Cocaine Abuse has become a problem:

  • Your life has become stressful and chaotic. You appear to be functioning, but you are overwhelmed with drama and problems
  • You only feel happy and calm when you use
  • Constantly thinking about using and how to acquire more
  • You have begun cutting yourself off from friends or family who don’t participate or approve of your Cocaine use
  • Continuing to use even though it is negatively affecting your job, finances, and/or relationships
  • You are unable to feel emotions, and rarely feel pleasure
  • You are experiencing intense nightmares and sleep disorders
  • You experience extreme paranoia
  • You opt out of buying necessities so that you have more to spend on Cocaine
  • A loved one has expressed concern about your use
  • You have tried to stop using Cocaine but continually relapse
  • Physical symptoms like aches and pains, chronic fatigue,  pale skin, heart problems, and weight loss
  • You get uncontrollable anger whenever your Cocaine use is challenged
