  Crack Cocaine Withdrawal  

Crack cocaine withdrawal is necessary for the drug user to overcome addiction and during the period of crack cocaine withdrawal is when the user first experiences sobriety. Crack cocaine withdrawal is a painful process and for this reason many crack addicts do not ever try to stop using drugs. When and if an addict wants to stop using drugs, the crack cocaine withdrawal process is an imperative start to the drug treatment process. Due to the harsh nature of crack cocaine withdrawal it is very difficult for the crack user to make it through this lifesaving process.

Crack cocaine withdrawal is very painful because of the basic nature of drug crack addiction. When a drug user first begins taking crack, the drug is about to become the most important thing in his/her life. Upon inhalation of this powerful drug the body is instantly addicted. The person's mental and emotional being is also affected by crack use. After the first few times a person uses crack cocaine, the mind becomes more and more psychologically addicted. This mental effect grows stronger until the addict starts to believe that he/she cannot live without the drug. The addiction also takes over the person's emotions and the user starts to do irrational and devious things in order to attain more of the drug.

Once the user's emotions have taken over, the addiction has become strong and is now full-blown. A person who is emotionally addicted to the substance is a person who can no longer feel normal without being intoxicated. When this occurs the user needs to take more of the drug just to get to the point of feeling normal. In order to feel okay in their own skin they have to take an immense amount of the substance. This type of cycle continues until the user either recovers from the addiction or dies.

Crack cocaine withdrawal demands that the addict lets go of the drug. People, who are already addicted to the drug, often think that crack cocaine withdrawal is practically impossible. The addicted person can no longer conceive of living life, or doing normal activities without the use of crack. Crack cocaine withdrawal is extremely important in order for the person to become free of the drug and free mentally, physically and spiritually.
