So What?

The fact is, mixing these two drugs together is like
playing Russian Roulette.

The effects of taking cocaine and alcohol together are far more dangerous than taking either drug alone

But, with every downside, there’s also an upside and many people find that...

  • when mixed with alcohol, the effects of cocaine last up to two and a half times longer.
  • cocaine counteracts the effects of alcohol giving you the feeling you can drink more.

Although mixing the two substances together can create an additional high, it can also cancel out the effects of both alcohol and cocaine and have much more serious side effects, the downside, get ready...

The effects of taking cocaine and alcohol together are far more dangerous than taking either drug alone. Cocaethylene is formed when alcohol and cocaine meet in the liver. This ‘metabolite’ remains in the body much longer, subjecting the heart and liver to a prolonged period of stress. That’s why some of the recorded deaths from Cocaethylene occur up to 12 hours after the user has mixed substances. The risk of sudden death is 18 times greater when alcohol and cocaine are used together. And what’s even worse is that you can’t see it coming, you could be feeling completely fine one minute and the next minute, BANG.
