  5. Why do people become addicted to cocaine?
Asked: 2018-01-12 00:50:56
I’ve dabbled in drugs just a little bit. Mostly stuff like pot and pills, but my friend really wants me to try cocaine. I’m worried that I’ll end up being addicted. How does that work, will I be addicted after just one try?

Cocaine is a different kind of drug. You can end up falling in love with its stimulating effects really fast and start depending on it to get you through the day. Its a bad idea to try it, especially if your friends are already regular users. A lot of people use it to feel more social or confident about their lives and activities.

My best advice is don’t try it at all. Yes, drugs like cocaine are extremely addictive, and it is definitely possible to get addicted or infatuated with it after just one try. Dabbling can quickly lead to a full blown addiction, and it sounds like you might be headed in that direction. Drugs lie coke can make you feel alert and like you can keep partying, but it’s deceptive and can quickly lead to physical dependence.
