What is Cocaine Addiction?
Alike most other addictive drugs, usage of cocaine targets and overstimulates the brain’s system which gives an enjoyable feeling for a short period of time.

The swiftness of this occurrence depends on each individual’s cocaine usage and the way their brain reacts to the drug. It also depends on how the drug is consumed, as some individuals who smoke crack cocaine will normally get addicted to the drug much faster.
