Cocaine cravings – An irresistible need
Cocaine causes excruciating cravings and the irresistible urge to use the drug, can often drive users to despair. Addicts will do anything to get that fix. Scientists explain cocaine craving based on changes in the brain from cocaine use.
Unlike heroin, Cocaine has no physical withdrawal symptoms. The danger from a cocaine craving comes from psychological addiction.
Another aspect is the duration of the addiction. After an addict passes a certain threshold, it becomes very difficult to overcome cocaine cravings.
Lots of cocaine users think they have it under control. They pay their rent, groceries and other bills before purchasing some coke. They don’t realise the cocaine cravings will only get worse over time.
