Cocaine is an addictive substance which has the ability to destroy many lives. Addition doesn’t always mean the individual abuses the substance every day. The biggest sign of addiction is when the individual has tried to break the routine and hasn’t been able to.

Cocaine has affected millions of people across the world causing harmful results. An addiction to cocaine can cause severe changes in personality, financial problems, anger issues and physical health.

The drug addiction may usually begin in a social setting, introduced by another person and is frequently mixed with alcohol. Whilst many people abuse this substance in a social setting, many addicts will use the drug by themselves to get through the day. Cocaine can be deemed as a desirable drug for someone who is shy and experiences social anxiety. The drug is renowned for making people feel more outgoing and increases confidence, which is a toxic mix for those that struggle to make friends. The addictive substance can quickly consume someone’s thoughts, change their behaviour, and can tear families apart.

Typical behavioural traits of a cocaine addict can cause anger issues, irritability, compulsive behaviour and paranoia. Physical symptoms of the disorder include;

– Shaking (a symptom of withdrawal symptom)
– Insomnia
– Nose bleeds
– Loss of appetite
– Dilated pupils
– Sweating
