Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant that is put into the body in three common ways: smoking, sniffing, and/or injection. It gives users a feeling of extreme pleasure, but it lasts only a short amount of time. If cocaine is smoked (known as crack cocaine) the high is almost immediate but only lasts about 5 or 10 minutes; if it is snorted, the high may not occur as rapidly, but will most likely last longer, about 15-30 minutes.

Some Signs of a Cocaine User:

  • Bloodshot eyes and/or frequent runny nose
  • Nosebleeds
  • Weight loss
  • Dilated pupils

Some Risks of Using:

  • Addiction
  • Risk of paranoia and/or depression
  • Headaches
  • Decrease in strength of immune system
  • Irritability, anxiety, or restlessness
  • Decreased appetite
  • Long term: cardiac arrest or damage to nasal septum

Cocaine is a very addictive substance and the high is only short-lived, so when the high ends, users continue to go back for more. They may experience a crash after their high has ended and this only helps to feed the addiction. The risks and side effects are very serious and often times using leads to serious addictions.
