    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”.

    If you can relate to any of these symptoms of cocaine addiction, it may be time for you to get help to deal with your cocaine addiction. Call us on 0800 081 0700  or email us here.
