Crack Cocaine Dependency
Cocaine has nothing on crack which is more dangerous in all aspects. Most people get addicted to crack Cocaine since the very first try. Moreover, the addiction grows very fast within them. In a very short time, crack Cocaine becomes the main need to them. They need more crack to sustain the high because it so intense, which makes them feel really good, but also very brief. With every passing day, the addicts need crack just to stay normal and that means that dependency has evolved.
The addicts will feel withdrawal side effects when they try to stop, after the crack addiction evolves, and they need bigger doses of the drug to feel the desired effects. The brain eventually loses its ability to naturally produce dopamine (a chemical the brain produces to make a person feel happy) because it will rely on the crack to force-release excess amounts of dopamine.
The craving is what makes it the most difficult when they try to be clean. Some users also just want to avoid the hardship of withdrawal by coming back to the drugs. Dangerous consequences of crack abuse are often ignored by the addicts.

Although crack Cocaine is relatively affordable, crack users still spend more and more money to sustain their addiction.
