Signs Of Cocaine Use

Listed in this article are some sure signs of cocaine use. It is often referred to as “coke.” It accelerates a person’s mind and body. It can make a person feel full of energy, happy, excited, and invincible. It can also intensify sexual urges. Participants often have significant mood swings from euphoria to paranoia, anger, nervousness, and afraid.

  • Puts someone on an emotional roller coaster
  • Schedule II with a high potential for addiction
  • Very potent stimulant
  • Nervousness is a major side effect
  • Feelings of fear or paranoia


It is derived from the leaves of a coca bush primarily grown in Peru and Bolivia. It is a fine, white, crystalline powder. Dealers always cut it with something, such as:

  • Fentanyl
  • Cornstarch
  • Talcum powder
  • Sugar
  • Procaine
  • Amphetamines

Any contact with or ingestion of fentanyl can result in an overdose.

After the high wears off, a person will seriously crash and feel tired and sad. At some point, the cravings to do more come on to get that adrenaline rush and feel good again.

  • Snorting is the most common method of using this powerful and seductive stimulant.
  • Look for signs of sneezing, nasal congestion, and other nose-related issues.
  • If they “shooting up” by injecting it into their bodies, look for marks on their arms in prominent veins.

The most common way of using “coke” is using a rolled-up dollar bill. Dollar bills are always handy and easy to roll up. Another delivery system is a plastic straw cut in half. Both curled dollars or some other cylindrical device are real giveaways.

  •  This will inevitably leaves some residue, often on the inside of the nostrils.
  • Late-night binging will seriously disrupt sleep patterns.

  • Carrying any eye-whitening liquid is a good indication.

The stimulating effect makes the person go from ecstasy to despair and depression. Rarely are they in a normal state of mind. Look for a manic type of behavior pattern.
