The Effects of Cocaine

The reason why cocaine is considered to be so dangerous is that of the high that goes along with it. Upon using cocaine the user receives an extreme high of happiness, being alert and productive, and a boost of energy that will make you think you can take on the world. Here’s where it gets even worse. This wonderful high, it only last around 30 minutes, then you crash and you crash hard. You immediately crave the drug again. The scenario gets even worse with this dangerous drug. You build up a resistance to using it very quickly, so the line of cocaine you snorted the first time does not have the same effect on you and you have to now snort 2 or 3 lines of cocaine to achieve the same high you received before. You are essentially chasing a high you will never catch. You can see just how dangerous it is with each high only lasting 30 minutes.

Other effects of cocaine:

  • Extreme paranoia
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Irritability
  • Muscle twitches or tremors
  • Violent behavior
  • Extreme depression
  • Insomnia
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Seizures
  • Death, even from one time

The Cocaine High

When using cocaine the levels of dopamine in the brain increase. Dopamine is a natural chemical messenger in the brain circuits that control pleasure and movement. Basically, dopamine is your brain’s reward center. For example, you smell pizza or some other food you really like, dopamine is released letting your body know that you are about to receive a reward for eating this pizza. The dopamine then recycles back into the cell that releases it. With cocaine, the dopamine is blocked from being recycled. The dopamine floods the brain and causes the cocaine high.

The Next Step

Cocaine addiction treatment is available and if you are willing, you will recover. There are many methods of recovery from cocaine, but Cognitive-behavioral therapy seems to be the most effective in preventing a cocaine relapse. Your behavior has a lot to do with the recovery process and learning therapy techniques will help you in dealing with the rash of emotions you will be dealing with on a daily basis.
