What are cocaine withdrawal symptoms?

My sister has been using cocaine for more than 10 years and wants to stop. She will be staying with me for a week while she gives it up. What symptoms should I look for and how can I make it easier for her?

You are a good sibling! Okay, withdrawing from cocaine is not as hard physically as withdrawing from opiates or alcohol, but psychologically, it can be very difficult. Not being able to be happy, extreme fatigue, feeling restless, not being hungry are all signs- but one of the toughest will be a more intense desire to use cocaine. Symptoms will last from a week to 10 weeks depending on many things. Get her to some NA meetings as soon as she is feeling well enough to go. Also, you can make sure she stays hydrated and active when she can.
