dryce conr
first he gets epilepsy on his mocha choco frappsa jok. after that ur 100% in the zone of splashing solomn emhisis. i like bing leeeeee song is the key to unlok the cowed

Jumpiness; being broke all the time, not paying his bills, and asking for money, then never giving it back; acting weirded-out for no apparent reason; staying up for hours and lying about having insomnia to cover his tracks; things begin to disappear in his flat, like the TV or computer, to pay for more drugs. Want me to continue?
The lady below may have given a more comprehensive answer but unless she can type 300 wpm, she Googled it. Mine is from personal experience. I've been sober and clean over a year.

All of the symptoms in your answers that I've read are accurate, however not all of them are immediate. My brother battled a cocaine addiction for many years and the first signs that he was using again were always his rapid speech and his mood swings. He was in an overly cheerful mood when he was high and miserable when he was coming down.

As his usage continued he would lose tremendous amounts of weight, sleep more, and become less and less social.

If he acts different and his face is messed up.

they sniff a lot?..i think...but im not sure.

Ian W
constant sniffing, itching on the face, blood-shot eyes, and dark circles under the eyes. though these all are symptoms of the cold. still be sure

Talks fast...nonstop....lot of confidence..especially if they didn't have it before....sniffs ...nosebleeds....

They will be pale and pupils will be like crazy dialated after use, bloody nose, will lose weight, paranoid also. Maybe also wierd things around their house. . That is all I can think of.

what makes you think he is on coke?
I mean most folks do not just jump to coke as the reason for small issues.
You must have a fairly good reason for thinking it.

if you two are really that close pull him up and ask him. Let him know you have noticed some changes and are just wondering what is up with him and ask him straight out is he getting high.
He may still try to hide it but if you come to him as a concerned friend who is not out to change his life (even though YES we know that too is the case no since in setting the alarm on that just yet)

running or bleeding nose. They will act weird when there on it. Ask them to tell a joke, if they cant they are wired up.

They are rather high-strung and "on" all the time

Sweating, jittery, runny nose, nose bleeds, stealing your stuff, not sleeping or eating, weight lose. To name a few.

I found this for you:

How can you tell if someone you care about is using cocaine? Sometimes it's tough to tell. But there are symptoms you can look for. The symptoms of cocaine use can be baffling. At first they may go unnoticed because they are so subtle. As the symptoms of cocaine use grow larger so does the individuals addiction to cocaine. Cocaine symptoms may start off as simple as a normal nosebleed and can become as extreme as cardiac arrest.

The effects of cocaine are immediate, extremely pleasurable, and brief. Cocaine and crack cocaine both produce intense but short-lived euphoria and can make users feel more energetic. Like caffeine, cocaine produces wakefulness and reduces hunger. Psychological effects include feelings of well-being and a grandiose sense of power and ability mixed with anxiety and restlessness. As the drug wears off, these temporary sensations of mastery are replaced by an intense depression, and the drug abuser will then "crash", becoming lethargic and typically sleeping for several days.

Cocaine addiction can occur very quickly and be very difficult to break. Animal studies have shown that animals will work very hard (press a bar over 10,000 times) for a single injection of cocaine, choose cocaine over food and water, and take cocaine even when this behavior is punished. Animals must have their access to cocaine limited in order not to take toxic or even lethal doses. People addicted to cocaine behave similarly. They will go to great lengths to get cocaine and continue to take it even when it hurts their school or job performance and their relationships with loved ones.

If someone you care about has one or more of the following symptoms of cocaine use, he or she may be using cocaine or other illicit drugs:

* Red, bloodshot eyes
* A runny nose, frequently sniffing, or bloody nose
* A change in eating or sleeping patterns
* A change in groups of friends
* A change in school grades or behavior
* Acting withdrawn, depressed, tired, or careless about personal appearance
* Losing interest in school, family, or activities he or she used to enjoy
* Frequently needing money
* Anxiety
* Panic
* Increased energy
* Talking rapidly
* Rapid pulse and respiration
* Paranoia
* Confusion
* Dilated pupils
* Hallucinations
* Altered motor activities (tremors, hyperactivity)
* Stereotyped, repetitive behavior
* Anger
* Impaired judgment
* Perspiration or chills
* Nausea or vomiting
* Evidence of weight loss
