Euphoric Effects of Crack
The euphoric effects of crack initially cause a person to feel a sense of exhilaration making him more energized, more alert and more sensitive to sight, sound and touch. Those who abuse the drug will also begin to experience many negative crack effects such as paranoia, restlessness, irritability, aggressiveness, and anxiety. In addition to the user's change in behavior and mood, crack effects increase heart rate, pupils dilate and blood pressure and temperature rise.
Crack Effects and Overdose
The most devasgtating crack effects are known as "fatal overdose" or "sudden death." fatal overdose can happen the first time someone tries crack or to a long term crack user. Fatal overdose occurs when the users' body chemistry is imbalanced to the slightest degree. The body's natural reaction to crack cocaine effects is to release toxic chemicals into the body which produce a reaction that results in cardiac arrest.
If crack is mixed with alcohol, the dangers of crack effects are compounded. These two substances can combine in the liver to produce a chemical called cocaethylene. This is a toxic and potentially fatal substance that produces a more intense high than crack alone but also raises heart rate and blood pressure more than crack alone, leading to its potentially deadly results.
Negative Effects of Crack
One of the the most destructive effects of crack, other than overdose and death, would be the addiction to crack itself. As the degree of the crack addiction increases, behaviors such as lying, cheating, stealing, missing work, financial problems, and legal issues all become very serious effects that destroy the addicts life as well as for everyone associated to the crack addict.
As you can see the euphoric effects of crack may appear to be appealing at first, however, the negative effects of crack far outweigh any potential benefits the drug may deceptively appear to have.
