Cocaine is an extremely addictive drug made from the leaves of the coca plant. In powder form, it is snorted but can also be liquified and injected. Crack is a crystallized form of cocaine that is smoked. Crack is more potent and addictive than powder cocaine.

This build-up produces feelings of euphoria that fuel the cycle of addiction, which is difficult to break without professional intervention.
Cocaine addiction impacts how a person processes information and manages interpersonal relationships. Extreme mood swings and irritability contribute to difficulties maintaining healthy relationships. Long-term use can affect daily functioning to the degree that individuals cannot handle their responsibilities, which contributes to the further breakdown of relationships.

This is common when fentanyl is added to cocaine without the user’s knowledge. Other physical effects include:
