Cocaine is a highly addictive drug. It acts as a stimulant and gives users a short-term boost of energy, alertness and focus. However, cocaine has a very dark side. According to a National Survey on Drug Use and Health more than 35 million Americans claim they have used cocaine at some point in their lives. Each year more than half a million people end up in the emergency department because of cocaine. Cocaine can impact your health, job and relationships.

Here are some common symptoms associated with cocaine addiction to help you determine if you or a loved one may need help:

  • Obsessive thoughts about cocaine
  • Inability to function without cocaine
  • Financial troubles associated with buying cocaine
  • Increase in risky behaviors
  • Challenges connecting with people you love
  • Stealing money from friends, family and businesses to buy more
  • Experiencing symptoms of withdrawal when you rapidly stop or decrease use

When you use cocaine, especially over an extended period, it increases your chance of heart attack, lung damage, seizures, headaches, loss of smell, bowel decay and permanent alterations in your mood.
