How can I stop relapsing on crack cocaine?

How can I stop relapsing on crack cocaine?

Active recovery: Relapse is part of recovery. Actively participating in any recovery program makes it significantly less likely you will use again. I strongly recommend multiple treatment approaches, the more invested you are in the recovery process the less likely for relapse. Participating in inpatient therapy provides time away from temptations, na, outpatient tx, avoiding old people, places, triggers.

I abuse zopiclone every night with cocaine, what can I do to stop?

Get help from a: Treatment program. You have obviously tried with "will power" etc. And have not succeeded. A formal treatment program, which can be outpatient, is usually available in most communities. Mutual-help programs like aa and na can be helpful, and there are alternatives like smart recovery, lifering secular recovery and women for recovery. Talk to a mental health professional for guidance.

Is it possible to stop a 20 year addiction to cocaine? The person does not eveen consider quitting because he doesn't think it is possible.

Is it possible to stop a 20 year addiction to cocaine? The person does not eveen consider quitting because he doesn't think it is possible.

Yes it's possible: With authentic desire, appropriate professional and personal support, and a treatment plan, it's possible to stop an addiction at any time. Being addicted to Cocaine for such a long time means that treatment could be complicated, but not impossible. However, if the person himself is not interested in quitting, it won't happen. His body may end things with a stroke or heart attack instead.

Does cocaine help with weight loss?

Does cocaine help with weight loss?

See below: I do not want to get preachy so lets consider Cocaine solely as a medicine. It is extremely short acting so any effects will be over within 20~30 mins. Tolerance will develop to its effects. The dosage of what you get will vary by who the "dealer"is. There is a risk of seizures and heart issues if the dose varies too much. The risk is just too much to justify its use for this reason.

I did cocaine yesterday... I am not a chronic user by any means.... But feel very dizzy and have vertigo today. What can I do to stop it?

I did cocaine yesterday... I am not a chronic user by any means.... But feel very dizzy and have vertigo today. What can I do to stop it?

Don't use cocaine.: Step 1. cocaine is not legal, unsafe, can cause serious injur to the sinuses, and can cause heart attacks and other injury via vasoconstriction and compromising blood flow to your organs. One of those organs is the brain. You may have suffered a small stroke. I think it wise to be checked by an MD. I'd also add that when buying street drugs you don't know what is really in them. Visit with a doc.

Drug test used crack cocaine 8 days ago. My weight is 166 and im 5'8". I also exercise and do sauna sessions. Will I test positive after 8 days.?

Technically, no but.: ...The only way to know for sure is to take a home drug test (about 20 dollars at your local drug store). The bigger concern is that your ability to maintain a job will be slim considering this significant addiction. Seek professional help and attend aa/na meetings asap.

If a recreational user stops taking cocaine, how long could it still be in his system where it may affect sperm and potentially cause birth defect?

Less than a month: Unlikely to be teratogenic, but has been asociated with learning difficulties and school behavior issues when the mom takes during pregnancy. Fatherhood is a great motivator to stop. Good luck.
