Each time someone does cocaine, they are taking a risk with their brain’s health. Even if you use on one occasion, the drug can trigger addiction or other destructive behavior.
Cocaine triggers immediate physical effects such as increased energy and stamina, elevated mood, and decreased appetite. But it also hits the brain so quickly that there is no “high” to enjoy — just cracking happiness followed by desolation and depression — which contributes to its addictive qualities. Cocaine users who experience this effect may binge on more of the drug in an attempt to recapture lost feelings. However, too much of the stimulant triggers feelings of paranoia and unease, and can result in a seizure and death from stroke or heart failure within.
