What Is a Crack Cocaine Crash?

A person who is on crack cocaine usually brags about how good it feels taking that drug. The truth is, that the euphoric “high” feeling someone gets is generally quickly followed by a crash. This is why so many users keep taking crack cocaine, so they never have that “down” feeling or the crash. The crack cocaine damages them physically and psychologically, even bringing them to the brink of, if not literally, killing themselves through the use of crack cocaine.

If a person tries to stop using crack cocaine on his own, it can bring about a crash that can make a person feel delusional and have hallucinations. However, the more a person uses crack cocaine, the more his body builds a tolerance to it. He will have to take more and more crack cocaine until he reaches the point that he either takes it all the time or suffers from crack cocaine crash. This catch-22 is one of the most awful feelings a person can have. However, a crack-cocaine user sees no way out.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year.
