    At Life Works, we believe that cocaine addiction has become a problem when you continue to use stimulants in spite of negative consequences – whether they are professional, relationship, health, financial, legal or other problems.

    Not sure if you have a problem?

    Denial is common and symptomatic of cocaine addiction. You may deny that you have a problem both to yourself and to others, through:

    • Minimising the effects of your cocaine use.
    • Criticising those around you for making too much fuss about your stimulant use.
    • Concealing your cocaine addiction from your loved ones.
    • Considerably underestimating the amount of cocaine you are taking.
    • Placing the blame for your cocaine addiction on other people or situations in your life, such as “I take cocaine because my daily life is so stressful”.
