Signs of Cocaine Addiction

Do you want to have more fun, to fit in, to feel great? If you think it’s as easy as snorting cocaine, you’re fooling yourself. The more you regularly rely on cocaine to get you “up,” the closer you move toward addiction. If you decide you are on the path to addiction, you can take action to change your behavior and find caring people to help you.

Check your addiction level

You may think cocaine helps you work faster and more creatively. But with repeated use, cocaine actually leads to decreased performance. Cocaine may also cause emotional problems (such as depression), seizures, and heart attacks. Read the following statements and check “yes” or “no.” Answering “yes” to 3 or more questions may be a signal that cocaine is taking over your life.
