Cocaine and It's Addiction

Cocaine is a drug made from the leaves of the coca plant native to South America. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, approximately 15 percent of people in the United States have tried cocaine.

Cocaine is also known as coke, C, flake, snow, crack or blow. It is highly addictive, and in the United States, recreational use is illegal. Cocaine is a stimulant which means it increases alertness and energy. It affects your brain’s neural pathways, making you feel talkative, energetic and euphoric. Cocaine addiction can develop quickly after trying it only a few times.

An addiction can be physical – your body craves the drug – or mental – you strongly desire the drug’s effects. Cocaine can be consumed in various ways; it can be inhaled through the nose or injected into a vein and used via genital or rectal routes. It can also be smoked after being processed into crack cocaine form. Addiction can occur quickly from any of these methods.

Effects of Cocaine on Humans:
Cocaine causes pleasure and satisfaction by increasing dopamine concentration in the brain. When cocaine prevents dopamine from being taken into nerve cells, it allows large amounts of the neurotransmitter to accumulate and stimulate surrounding nerve cells, heightening the pleasurable sense of euphoria.

Frequent use of cocaine can lead to tolerance, meaning that more significant amounts are needed to feel its effects. This can impact mental and physical health.
