Crack cocaine is not an easy drug to deal with as the addiction rate is incredible. It is just the way the drug works. Crack cocaine is a form of powdered cocaine. It is mixed with a combination of sodium bicarbonate and water, boiled down and the solid is then cut into chunk or rocks." These small rocks are then put into a pipe with thin wire mesh inside the bowl. The pipe is heated from the bottom usually with a lighter, and the vapors from the rocks are smoked. Sometimes the rock is crushed up and then sprinkled into a marijuana cigarette. These are called primos. The reason the crack is so addictive psychologically is that the euphoria that's induced is so high; the feelings of confidence, power, and physical strength instantly flow through your body within 30 to 90 seconds. The feelings, the rush, the high subsides are roughly 30 to 40 minutes.

Help is available for this serious addiction with professional help and support crack cocaine addiction can be overcome.
