Signs of Cocaine Addiction

There are numerous signs of cocaine addiction. Cocaine is a powerfully addictive central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. It has extremely potent euphoric effects, and individuals who take cocaine can develop an addiction to cocaine after using the drug for a very short period of time.

The effects of cocaine are immediate, extremely pleasurable, and brief. Cocaine produces intense but short-lived euphoria and can make users feel more energetic. Like caffeine, cocaine produces wakefulness and reduces hunger. Psychological effects include feelings of well-being and a grandiose sense of power and ability mixed with anxiety and restlessness. As the drug wears off, these temporary sensations of mastery are replaced by an intense depression, and the drug abuser will then "crash", becoming lethargic and typically sleeping for several days.

Cocaine is a crystalline, granular, or powder substance, having a saline, slightly bitter taste that numbs the tongue and lips. It heightens alertness, inhibits appetite and the need for sleep, and provides intense feelings of pleasure. Some users find that the drug helps them to perform simple physical and intellectual tasks more quickly, while others can experience the opposite effect. It is prepared from the leaf of the Erythroxylon coca bush, which grows primarily in Peru and Bolivia.

When cocaine use is stopped or when a binge ends, depression (crash) follows almost immediately. This is accompanied by a strong craving for more cocaine, fatigue, lack of pleasure, anxiety, irritability, sleepiness, and sometimes agitation or paranoia.
