Crack Cocaine Addiction and Abuse in South Yorkshire South Yorkshire

What Is Crack Cocaine

After the initial use of crack Cocaine, dependency can evolve and keep growing since that first high can't be reached with the same dose of the drug.


Crack Cocaine is a substance similar to mineral, which means it is strong and has a white colouration. Crack cocaine is laboratory manufactured made by mixing baking powder or ammonia into cocaine powder. While others use aluminium wrapping or tin cans (for soft drinks) to evaporate and then smoke it, most people use a pipe made of glass.

Popping or cracking sound this substance produces when it is heated is responsible for its name - crack Cocaine. It however has many aliases but do not be fooled, whichever name it goes by it is still the same notorious drug.

Crack Dependency

Ordinary Cocaine is far less addictive and strong than crack Cocaine. Some users can even become dependent after the initial use, which means that the crack dependency grows fast. Addicts need a bigger dose of the substance to keep the high they feel that is so enjoyable, but also very short. This quickly grows into dependency at which point you are completely hooked.

Eventually, they develop a tolerance to its pleasurable effects and suffer from withdrawal symptoms when they stop using it, which makes them want the crack more and more. Crack Cocaine works in your body by triggering the brain to produce high amount of dopamine which multiplies the sense of happiness by so much. Smoking crack only destroys the brain function to produce dopamine in a normal amount. This is the reason why crack Cocaine addicts can no longer feel 'normal' without the drug.

The cravings grow stronger and stronger due to the undesirable withdrawal symptoms he or she experiences. Most of the crack Cocaine users are aware of the negative impacts the substance may cause in their life and body. The worst part is they choose to be ignorant to it and keep consuming it.
