Cocaine Addiction, How It Starts?

Cocaine addiction is a uniquely painful experience for users and their loved ones alike. Though some may claim that cocaine is not physically addictive, research has shown that it has powerful, lasting effects on the brain that make it one of the most addictive drugs in the world.

Often seen as a party drug, cocaine is popular because it provides a burst of energy, coupled with feelings of confidence and pleasure. This is because cocaine significantly affects the brain’s natural reward system, causing mental energy, alertness, and euphoria.

But cocaine is a fast acting drug, and its effects wane quickly, leaving you wanting more and more. Eventually, the same amount won’t do the trick. You may find yourself desperate for larger quantities of the drug, and put yourself in compromising positions as a result.

The first step is diagnosis.

Recovering from a Cocaine Addiction

Though it isn’t easy, recovering from cocaine addiction is absolutely possible and it’s within the power of the individual to overcome this serious and often devastating addiction.

First, it’s important to understand that the addiction is not a reason to feel shame, or to blame oneself. Addiction is a disease and must be treated as such. Recovery won’t look exactly the same for any two people, but it may involve counseling as well as time spent at a substance abuse treatment center.
