Why You Should Just Say No To Cocaine

o-COCAINE-facebook

Cocaine, known as the caviar of street drugs or nose candy, is as common as high heels in the Egyptian party scene these days. Drug users who once shied away in the privacy of the toilet cubicles are now bluntly snorting lines in front of everyone in bathrooms and house parties.

The tropane alkaloid derived from the coca plant is a powerful nervous system stimulant that wears off after 30 minutes to two hours. Smoked, injected or snorted, the drug quickly reaches the brain through the bloodstream.

Cocaine stimulates the pleasure sensors in the brain, which leads to euphoria described as having an increased sense of energy, alertness, enthusiastic speech and an illusion of supremacy and sexuality. On the other hand, some people describe accompanying effects as irritability, paranoia, restlessness and anxiety during the comedown.

You might have come across numerous studies condemning the drug use and felt safe from addiction, but this is not the only concern when it comes to cocaine. These images will give you a real insight on what is going on inside your body every time you snort a line – other than the possibility of drug dependence. Side effects vary according to the dose and usage frequency.
