After reading through government websites , it looks like cocaine impacts the reward center of the brain that floods it with dopamine. This means that youre going to feel really alert, awake, and euphoric. Ten feet tall and bullet proof is an understatement. Unfortunately, the feeling usually wears off after like 2 hours, meaning that you have to constantly use to stay high. This is part of what makes cocaine so addictive. Its expensive and easy to go through huge amounts every single day.

This is definitely not a fun drug to mess with. Its so easy to get addicted to cocaine, and it completely ruined your life. It can make you feel really good at first, and releases all that dopamine into your brain, but after a while it really ruins your neural pathways.

As of 2013, 37,634,000 people over 12 in the US had used cocaine. And this number has decreased from previous years. So, obviously, cocaine makes people feel pretty good. They use if because of that false sense of confidence. Some people used to use to because it decreased their appetite, but that doesnt do much good if youre building up a huge tolerance. I know that cocaine is super addictive and people keep using because its so hard to stay up when youre always coming down. Cocaine> can make you feel like you can do anything, until you cant. Then you end up in a bad accident or suffering from a sudden heart attack.

Cocaine makes you feel like you can do anything. They used to be like my cup of coffee every morning, until I had a mild heart attack from using too much. It has a way of pulling you into thinking that youre okay even when youre acting crazy. It makes your brain flood with feel-good chemicals, and eventually makes it so you cant get these anywhere else.

Generally, the number one concern of cocaine use on the brain is dependency and addiction, with cocaine taking over the individuals life, in all areas.

Alright, i will try to make this as simple as possible but your question is not simple. When you do cocaine, the chemicals in cocaine will stimulate your brain into releasing lots of happy chemicals; Dopamine mainly but other happy chemicals are involved, that dopamine gives you that elevated mood. Because cocaine is soooo good at doing that your brain become dependent on cocaine to release all those happy chemicals. The more often you do cocaine the more dependent you become.
