Physical Signs of Cocaine Addiction
While the physical symptoms of cocaine can worsen over time, using it even once can be dangerous. As cocaine stimulates your body, boosting your heart rate and your blood pressure, it can lead to serious complications (and even in some cases, death) after using it just one time. Other symptoms of cocaine abuse include:
- Panic attacks
- Cardiovascular dilemmas
- Twitching muscles
- Dilated pupils
- Struggles with balance
- Overdose and death
Those are just a few of the physical symptoms associated with cocaine addiction. Even worse symptoms can arise from abusing cocaine along with other substances, such as alcohol, weed, heroin, and others.
Behavioral Signs of Cocaine Addiction
The addictive qualities of cocaine addiction cannot be overstated. Many find that cocaine becomes their only focus in life very quickly after usage. Problems that can rapidly arise from cocaine abuse include:
- Obsession with cocaine
- Memory loss
- Violent impulses
- Fluctuating moods
- Rapid speech
- Nose bleeds
- Cognitive issues
- Unable to perform at work, school, or even show up for them
- Financial problems from repeated usage
Inability to stop using cocaine
If you or anyone you love has begun to exhibit any of these symptoms, it’s important to reach out for help as soon as possible.
