Cocaine belongs to highly addictive psychoactive substances that lead to serious psychological and physical consequences.
What is cocaine?
Cocaine is a psychoactive drug that directly affects the brain and permanently damages it. It belongs to the oldest drugs, and in pure form (hydrochloride) it has been used for over a century. Today it is one of the most commonly used substances.
Cocaine is particularly used when going out, as it seems that people feel more powerful, stronger and safer. People on cocaine drink more and feel they have increased sexual power, so many guys like to sniff a line of cocaine while out.
However, a short moment of satisfaction is just an illusion and it costs too much.
Because of the cocaine addiction people ruin their lives, lose significant friendships, jeopardize their career and work, suffer significant financial losses, and thus bring themselves to the “edge of existence”. All that they have built for years can collapse as a “tower of cards”.
