Warning Signs of Cocaine Addiction and Abuse
The physical warning signs of cocaine abuse can vary depending on the person. Quite often the eyes are a good indicator of cocaine use; a user's eyes may appear wide, bloodshot, or have dilated pupils. Stimulants like cocaine increase heart rate and blood pressure so heart irregularities can be a warning sign. Cocaine users often have an elevated speech pattern and speech irregularities. Because cocaine is an appetite suppressant, people who use cocaine regularly often lose weight or have a decreased appetite. And because cocaine is powerful stimulant, people who use cocaine often have a difficult time falling asleep or suffer from disruptive, inconsistent sleep patterns.
Other warning signs that someone might be using and/or abusing cocaine or crack cocaine include:
frequent mood swings
problems with work performance
frequent tardiness or absence from work
debt money problems
rapid or irregular heartbeat
not fulfilling obligations at home or work
giving up activities or friendships
the shakes, nausea, or other physical illness (due to withdrawal of not having cocaine)
These warning signs are what to look for if you suspect someone you know might be using cocaine. Like any warning sign, they are no guarantee, merely indicators to raise serious concerns.
