The Effects of Cocaine
Upon using cocaine the user receives an extreme high of Euphoria feeling alert and productive. A boost of energy that will make you think you can take on the world is included. The high is short lived. Cocaine inebriation lasts around 30 minutes, then you crash and you crash hard. You immediately crave the drug again. You build up a tolerance to using it very quickly. 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.

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.
