What is Cocaine?
Cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug typically used intranasally for recreational purposes. Cocaine is highly addictive and repeated use can have serious consequences. Cocaine is a powerful stimulant classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as a Schedule II drug. Cocaine has a high potential for addiction, as it produces an intense feeling of euphoria. Cocaine increases levels of the natural chemical messenger dopamine in brain circuits related to the control of movement and reward. Street names for cocaine include coke, blow, powder, white girl, or snow. Some people inject a combination of cocaine and heroin, called a Speedball. Cocaine is distributed as a white, crystalline powder, and is oftentimes diluted, or cut, with a variety of substances including laundry detergent, laxatives, and other illicit substances. Drug dealers “cut” cocaine to stretch out the product and increase their profits. Cocaine cut with other substances can be a deadly combination.
Risks of Cocaine Use
Even in the short term, a struggle with cocaine addiction can have obvious negative consequences on your life. These include both the drug’s physical side effects and changes in your behavior.

Some of these short-term side effects are:


Loss of interest


Intense mood changes


Hygiene problems


Low mood






Sleep problems


Interpersonal problems


Problems with work, school, or the law

With more frequent use, your body will require a larger amount of cocaine in order to feel the same effects as your tolerance builds. In larger doses, cocaine can lead to bizarre, unpredictable, and even violent behavior. Higher doses are also more toxic and could lead to seizures.
There are also long-term symptoms of cocaine addiction that individuals should be aware of. Some of these are extremely serious and can result in long-haul disease and even eventually death. More long-term side effects of cocaine addiction include loss of smell and nasal damage, brain bleeds, lung problems, stroke, heart attack, or heart disease.
