It’s crucially important to understand that identifying someone’s drug use is not always as obvious as it is looks when dramatized in movies and on TV. But even when not obvious, many drugs manifest in their users in similar ways, and there are definite clues to determine if someone might be using.
Cocaine is one of those drugs. It is an alluring and addictive substance. It has even been portrayed as its own character in popular culture – personified as a temptress, gangster, powerbroker, and life of the party. But as we know, the way anything is portrayed for entertainment – especially drug use and its glorification – is never what it truly is. Behind the notorious rock-n-roll cocaine heyday and the white-powder-fueled endless social (and sexual) possibilities, lies a false seductress promising a portal into a non-stop, amped-up party and with no ramification but a twenty-four-inch waist and boundless energy.
