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
- cocaine counteracts the effects of alcohol giving you the feeling you can drink
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.
