According to a study of 1,081 US residents who had used cocaine, 5% to 6% became addicted within a two-year timeframe. As individuals continued to use cocaine for longer timeframes, the risk of addiction increased. According to the same study, 5.3 to 6.3 million people in the United States used cocaine in 2001.
Cocaine withdrawal starts rapidly. When someone stops using cocaine, they experience what is known as "the crash." Some symptoms of cocaine withdrawal include nausea, paranoia, depression, mood swings, and more. In more severe cocaine withdrawals, some users will even report symptoms that are similar to schizophrenia. Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal can last for weeks after the last dose.
Many people, as many as 30 to 40 percent, who try to quit cocaine on their own will often start using alcohol or another substance to alleviate the unpleasant symptoms of cocaine withdrawal. Cocaine is also a significant contributor to drug overdose deaths in the United States. As many as 5,000 to 6,000 people die each year in the United States as the result of a cocaine overdose, by way of a heart attack or stroke.
