Cocaine can take you very, very high. You feel as if you are the most important soul around. You feel 'like a million bucks.' This feeling lasts for approximately 30 minutes. In this time, you may or may not be able to do more coke. Either way, you will never reach the point you were at. And when the party is over, you feel very, very strung out. You will be tired and irritable. The chronic cocaine user can feel a variety of symptoms like nasal bleeding and headaches. This will last until you get high again, but it wonít completely go away until you stop doing coke.
My experiences with this drug are limited, but the lessons are not difficult to learn. Cocaine has a built-in addiction mechanism that is very easy to be influenced by. You can feel it as soon as you snort some. Everything feels right. The world is perfect, and even though itís just for a moment, you feel perfect bliss. Bliss decays into desire and need. The lively inner-energy you feel becomes perverted into nervous twitches of the extremities or teeth grinding. There are only two cures for this: more cocaine or time. Only one will set you free.
