Cocaine whether in powder form or crack is a stimulant that creates a quick, intense euphoria or high that may be accompanied by a decrease in hunger, indifference to pain and fatigue. During a cocaine rush, users may feel powerful, secure, confident and attractive. Negative feelings about themselves disappear. However, the feelings created by cocaine are false and quickly fade, leaving the initial negative feelings, which may be greater than before use. There is a sense of urgency to continue use to remove the discomfort and rekindle the high.
Prolonged use can produce severe paranoia, auditory and visual hallucinations and delusions, such as feeling like insects are crawling on the skin. Studies show that stimulant use changes the brain and damages the functioning of neurons.
