A highly potent natural stimulant, cocaine can be 'snorted' smoked or injected. Snorting – or inhaling cocaine – causes the drug to be absorbed directly through nasal tissues. Smoking or 'cooking' involves inhalation of the vapor or smoke into the lungs. Absorption into the bloodstream using this method is as rapid as injecting the drug directly into a vein. All these methods are dangerous to the user, but evidence suggests that injecting and smoking pose a higher risk to the user than snorting.
Acting on the central nervous system, Cocaine use results in constricted blood vessels, increased temperature, increased heart rate and high blood pressure. Addicts also typically experience restlessness, irritability and anxiety. Tolerance to the drug increases rapidly and addicts find that they need ever increasing amounts to achieve the desired high.
Withdrawal from cocaine causes many serious physical and psychological problems. Professional care is important to help alleviate the pain and stress of withdrawal.
