How long does crack stay in your system?

The high from crack lasts only a few minutes. But how long cocaine stays in the system is much longer.  Crack cocaine can be detected for days to weeks after use.  Here, we’ll talk more about how crack works in the body and why habitual or heavy users have more to worry about than occasional users. Any questions about crack are welcomed at the end.

Main uses of crack cocaine

Some forms of cocaine are used as a topical, local anesthetic. In its unrefined form as coca leaf, cocaine is used as an herbal medicine in parts of Latin America. However, it is illegal to possess coca plants in the US. Furthermore, the crack form of cocaine does not have any legitimate medical uses – it’s used purely for its stimulant effects. Using crack can give a person a feeling or euphoria, a high, but it also restlessness, excitement, and related issues like tremors and paranoia.

How do you take crack?

Crack is a form of cocaine that’s been crystallized into a hard “rock” using baking soda. Unlike other forms of coke, which are snorted or injected, crack is heated to release cocaine vapor, which is then inhaled into the lungs. Crack is absorbed just as rapidly through inhalation as cocaine, which is injected directly into the bloodstream.

Peak levels and half life of crack

The half life of crack is very short – as low as 15 minutes. The high may only last 5-10 minutes total. The levels of cocaine in the blood depend on how much crack a person has smoked at one time, how tolerant they are to the drug, and how often they smoke crack. Typical peak levels in abusers are around 0.31 mg/L within five minutes of taking the drug.

Crack drug testing: How long does crack stay in the body?

Despite creating such a short high, crack can be detected in the body for a very long time, depending on the testing method used.  While crack is absorbed by the body very quickly, very small levels of the drug can linger in bodily fluids or hair for days, sometimes even weeks. Hair samples are the most accurate way to judge past coke use, months after the suspected use of the drug.

How long does crack stay in blood?

The period crack can be detected in the blood is relatively brief. It’s typically no longer detectable after about 8 hours after use. In some people, this detection window for crach can be as little as 2 hours, if they’ve taken a smaller dose or have a very fast metabolism. For this reason, blood testing for crack is not normally done unless there’s a reason to suspect someone has taken crack within the past few hours.

How long does crack stay in hair?

Crack can be detected in the hair for months, even years, after it’s been taken. How long it’s detectable for depends on the length of a person’s hair, the amount of crack they’ve taken, and how frequently they use crack.

How long does crack stay in urine?

Cocaine can be detected in urine for 1-4 days after use. How long it remains in the body depends on the amount take, the size and metabolism of the crack abuser, and other factors. High doses of crack cocaine can show up a week later – and in a few very extreme cases, crack might be detected up to 3 weeks later urine.

How long does crack stay in saliva or sweat?

Cocaine can be detected in saliva and sweat, as well. This method can detect very low, trace amounts of the drug. Because of this, you can test positive for crack for several weeks after smoking it.

Crack and addiction

How fast can you get addicted to coke and crack cocaine?  Repeated use leads quickly to addiction.  And although everyone is different, crack is a very addictive drug.  So if you are smoking crack and like the high, be warned.  Habitual use has a number of negative side effects. Crack use and can cause:

  • constricted blood vessels
  • increased blood pressure
  • increased body temperature
  • increased heart rate
  • malnourishment
  • paranoia or psychotic episodes
  • overdose or death

Problems with crack?

Therapy has been shown to be effective for treating cocaine addiction and helping prevent relapse. It can’t be relied upon all on its own – treatment needs to be accompanied by a strong social support network and access to related services. There are no FDA-approved medications for treating crack addiction.

I smoked crack cocaine heavily for almost two full days, and now I have need to be concerned about how long the metabolites stay in my urine. I weigh almost 200 lbs, and it’s been two days since my last use. Could you give me an approximation of the duration that I have to detox, either with or with out the help of a detox kit.

12:55 pm April 11th, 2012

Hello R.Rolando. If you have a drug test coming up for probation or for pre-employment, we suggest honesty. If you’re ready to give up the cocaine, you can work on how to stay clean. If you’re not ready to change, you’ll have to ride it out. Each person metabolizes drugs differently, although cocaine can be detected in urine for a few days to a week after use.

i smoked about 1/4 of a gram on fri night. i wiegh 125 with a high metabolisim. but have ia drug test on tues morning thats 3 full days. would yhat be enough time or is there any thing i can do to speed the prosses up?

4:03 am May 15th, 2012

Hi Keith S. You may be right on the border of the detection period for cocaine in the system with a drug screen 3 days after last crack use. However, we do not suggest or recommend methods for trying to clean the system of drugs or advocate for trying to fool drug screens. Instead, we advocate for a position of totally honesty during drug screens. Although this might seem radical, we feel that honesty is the way forward in order to help you change your life. If you are smoking crack, there is help for stopping.

If I did about 10 hits of crack 2 & 1/2 months ago and that is it for the past few years, what are the possible trace amounts in my hair? I weigh about 240, not a very high metabolism… I have a job I want to apply for that does a 90 day hair test. I screwed up one drunken night (which was the last night I drank too), and I want to make sure I wait enough time to ensure a positive on the test…

2:11 am July 31st, 2012

Hi Danny. Yes, a binge night out while smoking cocaine can be detected on a hair sample analysis. It would be advisable to wait the full 90 days or longer before giving a hair sample.

I just have a question… I not a frequent crack user, however, early Tuesday morning July 31. I bought 150 dollars worth of crack and smoked all of it… not by my self but with one other person. I have a swab test on Monday the 13th of August. Should I be ok?

1:43 pm August 13th, 2012

Hi Jason. Drugs do not remain in oral fluids as long as they do in urine, so oral swabs are used mainly for determining current use and impairment. However, cocaine can be detected anywhere from 2-10 days after use. So the detection window for the oral test may just well overlap with your use. Please let us know how it goes.

I hate to admit this and I am embarrassed just typing it but I was a crack cocaine user for almost 10 years. Heavy at times over the years. I have been clean now for almost 4 years. I have since been diagnosed by a psychiatrist with bipolar disorder (not new) with psychotic features because after I stopped, I became paranoid and began to hear voices. I never asked her, but could those two symptoms be from all those years of smoking crack? I was never paranoid and never heard voices until I stopped. The chemicals in my brain were “screwed up” anyway from the bipolar and then this psychosis came about…any ideas?

11:24 am August 21st, 2012

Hi courtney. Yes! Chronic stimulant use can produce a paranoid psychosis that is similar to acute paranoid schizophrenia. In fact, cocaine-induced paranoia is a common experience among chronic users. But amount and duration of cocaine use are related to the development of longer term psychosis. You can read medical articles about this topic by searching for these keyword terms:

“site:.gov cocaine induced psychosis”

My wife showed positive for cocaine on a test while she was in a mental hospital. I had had the feeling she was doing drugs for month but couldnt quite prove it. I was told by a girl who worked at the smokeshop she shopped at that my wife would buy “love rose pipe” & something that looked like steel wool everytime she would shop there. She claims she only did it once, but I had heard that you have to take it several times for it to show in a drug test. What is accurate?

11:13 am August 23rd, 2012

Hi Fred. I can understand your concern. If your wife was testing using urinalysis, recent and one-time cocaine use can be detected a few days after ingestion or WEEKS after chronic use. One way that you can track her use over time is to submit a hair sample to a lab (or threaten to) so that you can get an accurate picture of cocaine use OVER TIME. It can be hair from the head or body … it doesn’t matter. Each inch of hair will report drug use for 30 days. So, the longer the hair sample, the more backwards in time you can go. But then, your mind can rest at ease and the science can take over.

5:49 pm August 26th, 2012

Yeah i smoked a ten dollar two hitter fri I usually don’t do it. I’m in a pain clinic and I am getting tested next Tuesday the fourth. They always do urine then send it off to lab. I’m really worried will I be ok. And does wellbutrin kind. Of act on dopamine too.

4:57 pm August 31st, 2012

Hi Mike. You’ll most likely test clean for cocaine on a urinalysis if the detection period is >10 days, or so. Do you have a prescription for the Wellbutrin? If so, just bring it along to the test…although antidepressants aren’t usually part of a DOT 5 panel drug screen.

My husband recently admitted to using crack over the past year. Since that time our marriage has gotten worse and worse as I lost all trust in him. He said he stopped but of course hasn’t. Now he’s threatening divorce and to get full custody of our son and disappear with him. I need evidence of his drug use to keep my son from disappearing with him. Trouble is my husband is bald. What is the best alternate place to take a hair sample to get the best read of past use?

11:43 am September 3rd, 2012

Hi Cynthia. Great question, thanks! If your husband is bald, you can take a hair sample from anywhere on the body including the underarm, legs, arms, chest or pelvic pubic area. These hairs tend to be long enough to produce a 90 day sample (1 inch per 30 days). I hope that things go well for you!

Hi. My friend was smoking a heavy amount of crack over the weekend in my house. I kept telling them to keep the smoke away from me but they were not listening and the smoke was everywhere. At one point my throat felt funny and i felt dizzy and sick to my stomach. We even tried to have sex but i couldn’t cuz he tasted like it. I personally never took a hit but in my line of work we get drug tested through urine samples. Will it show up in my urine if it was in the air i was breathing?

sarah
6:54 pm September 3rd, 2012

Hi again. I was also wondering will it show up if we had oral sex as well

11:38 am September 4th, 2012

Hi Sarah. It’s really not clear whether or not cocaine may be detected in your drug screen. You can generally not reach the cut-off levels for
cocaine by merely inhaling crack cocaine fumes or vapors
second hand. However, passive exposure to heavy amounts of second-hand crack cocaine smoke can result in a positive drug test in an exposed adult. And while cocaine or cocaine metabolites may be transferred during oral sex (if you swallowed), the levels may not be significant enough to be detected. The bottom line is: it’s unclear whether or not cocaine will be detected in your system. Test yourself using a home test if you suspect that you may test positive for cocaine…or wait for the official drug screen results.

sarah
3:31 pm September 4th, 2012

Where and how can i get a home test?

6:04 pm September 4th, 2012

Hi again, Sarah. Many retailers now offer at home drug screens for various drugs, including cocaine. For example, you can find a Quickscreen At Home Drug Test Kit Cocaine at Walgreens, order a cocaine at home test from Amazon, and other outlets. Just type in the keywords “home test cocaine” in your internet browser and compare costs and details online. Hope this helps!

2:06 pm September 6th, 2012

I posted July 30th. I took ten hits 110 days ago, and they took most of my armpit hair today since I keep my hair fairly short. I’m just tired of searching for answers on the internet to end my stress; I don’t know if I actually have a question for you other than do you think I might be under the cutoff levels and if you know anything about Psychemedics labs, do they actually check the entire hair sample? I will let everyone know how it turns out. I do think if it’s a 90 test, I doubt they can really determine the 90 days if they liquefy the entire hair sample

4:48 pm September 6th, 2012

Hi Danny. How long is one armpit hair, in terms of inches? Measure another sample from your own hair again – one inch is about 30 days of previous use.

Drugs and drug metabolites remain sequestered in the hair shaft indefinitely. Testing method for hair assays involves measuring the drug molecules embedded inside the hair shaft, eliminating external contamination as a source of a positive test result. From what I’ve read, Psychemedics liquefies the hair, releasing all drugs present for analysis. Plus, Psychemedics uses an extensive wash procedure on test samples and analyzes the wash to ensure that any potential contamination has been removed or taken into account. Hair analysis is effective in identifying periodic cocaine exposure and can identify and differentiate periodic or chronic exposure to cocaine, while urinalysis measures acute or short-term exposure.

If your hair specimen is long enough to go back 110+ days, it’s possible that cocaine use is detected.

Danny
5:35 pm September 7th, 2012

They are about two inches, but since it’s the armpit hair, it seems it lays dormant within the follicle for a period before the follicle pushes it out. I don’t know the growth rate or the “life span” of an armpit hair, but it seems that it is a very slow process vs the hair on our head. I wish I knew how one night’s lower amount use would be determined as far as cut-off levels on an armpit hair, but I suppose I will find out. I did read that federal regulations says they are to clip the hair to go back up to 90 days, but that still leaves a lot of room considering the slower growth rate. Man, one stupid night, too much stress!

12:30 pm September 9th, 2012

Yes, good luck and please let us know how it turns out. You sound like you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and I hope that you can stay away from smoking in the future!

i smoked crack last night (9-9-12) about 4grams/ i wieght about 330lbs. i have have a urine drug test coming up on (9-15-12) do you think i’ll pass and you have any advise on how i could reduce the detection of it

12:02 pm September 11th, 2012

Hi Robert. No, we don’t advise on HOW to pass drug screens but can provide factual information about cocaine metabolism in the body. Cocaine can be detected in the urine for up to four (4) days after use. Seeing that the time between use and detection is about six (6) days in your case, cocaine use will most likely not be detected, especially if you are a very occasional user.

Danny
5:58 pm September 12th, 2012

I am very surprised, but I did pass the test!

Hi, I am a recovering cocaine and opiate addict who broke the cycle of addiction a year and a half ago. However, I had ONE relapse week in which I binged on crack and clonazepam. Exactly 33 days later, I received a UA from p.o., which was sent to a lab. One month has passed and I am now going in for my next scheduled visit. Although it may surprise you, I am nervous about perhaps having failed the test. Am I being paranoid? Or is it possible to fail a GCMS 33 days after a one week binge?

hi, i have an infected tooth, worse pain ever ugh.no insurance & no money so i was unable to get the tooth pulled or any relief w/o pain med despite eating tylenol & oraljel. being in extreme pain my grandma’s friend put some on my tooth. ahh finally some form of relief from the hell i was suffering. the 1st time that i didnt touch it, but she also suggested tryin to smoke it, she won that debate over my pain & suffering. this was sat, im worried i mayb tested next week. what do I do or do i even have anything to b so stressed over?

1:19 pm October 8th, 2012

Hi Stressed. The detection window for cocaine is 1-4 days after use…so you can test negative for cocaine if you wait the full four (4) days or so after you used before testing.

bobby
5:50 am October 10th, 2012

I smoked about a gram of crack and never do it I smoked it Friday the 5th and have a urine test on the tenth will I test positive for crack

6:20 am October 10th, 2012

Hi Bobby. Given the dose of cocaine within a short binge period, it’s hard to tell if the cocaine will go undetected, or not. It’s possible that cocaine is picked up on a drug screen. But then again, you body could metabolize it before the test, as well.

confused
10:26 am October 10th, 2012

Life is confusing right now, going through divorce, new relationship, & last night had a friend talk me into (yes, i know, it was still my decision) trying crack… I smoked 4 rocks… do you think I will get cravings with everything going on, or should I be ok if I don’t smoke anymore?

1:23 pm October 15th, 2012

Hello confused. That’s a good question. As long as you stay away from crack as a distraction from the difficult period you are going through, you can be OK. It’s when we use drugs to help us cope with disappointment, loss, or hurt that we can get addicted. So you are right to think that you’re in a very vulnerable place right now. At the same time, you may want to seek some positive help in the form of counseling with a psychologist or mental health professional. Often in times of crisis like a divorce, many issues arise and it can be VERY helpful to process them with someone who is trained in helping us through them.

Good luck!!!

confused
9:57 pm October 15th, 2012

Thank you, I am seeing a therapist for my crisis, and, even though I want something (sometimes, it feels like anything) to dull the pain, ache, and take away my feeling of being vulnerable, I am choosing not too. Thanks for the good you do.

Struggling
12:05 am October 17th, 2012

I have been using for the last 2 years and have reduced my using from every second day to every weekend and even reduced the amount that I consume. I have tried therapy and self help groups but that urge is always there to use when I set my mind on not using. Would you say that the mind set to have ((other than the negative effects it has) would be to treat it like quitting smoking cold turkey? Or should I try going to self help groups again and making it stick? It’s the seeing hearing smelling triggers that make it a really hard time avoiding :(. Suggestions?

5:01 am October 17th, 2012

Hi Struggling. Good for you to reach out for suggestions. I’d say that cold turkey and 100% abstinence is the way to go with cocaine. There’s no getting around the fact that cocaine has no medical uses and is used to get high. And when you stop getting high, your brain can start to normalize….because cocaine is known to change the way our brains operate.

That said, you would probably be best served with a combination of therapies. Group and individual counseling from an addictions specialist like a psychologist are helpful. As are support groups. But to get to the underlying psycho-emotional reasons you use, it’s really helpful to work with a professional. Also, check out SMART Recovery. They have a self-help program that you might be able to follow, given that you seem like a self-starter. And ASK around. Ask your family physician, a social worker, a spiritual or religious leader you trust, etc. about drug addiction resources in your area. When the willingness is there, doors open.

Struggling
1:53 pm October 17th, 2012

Thank you so much for a ll your help. My other questions is because of my use how long would it stay in my system once I quit altogether?

2:32 pm October 17th, 2012

Hi again, Struggling. Probably a few weeks, at most. But the metabolites will still be present in the hair until you cut that section of your hair out. Does that make sense? Also, call 1-800-662-HELP for drug addiction information and to connect with local resources in your area. It’s a national drug abuse hotline and could be a good first resource for you.

i havnt smoked crack in like 3 months, i took 2 small hits friday night, will i be able to pass a urine test this wednesday?

7:12 am October 22nd, 2012

Hi Sean. Given the low dose and the time between use and screening (>4 days), it’s likely that you will pass the drug screen for cocaine.

12 Step
8:36 pm October 22nd, 2012

Hi. I am really nervous about a swab test that I have to take tomorrow for a job. This past Wednesday night, I went to my bf’s house. When I awoke Thursday morning, I was sure that he was smoking in my presence all night AND when I got there, I thought I smelled it but he denied it. He asked for help the next day. How worried should I be since I didn’t ACTUALLY use it?

8:47 am October 24th, 2012

Hello 12 Step. Cocaine use can be detected as a by-product and be registered in “second hand” users, especially when smoked. While the amount of cocaine analytes will be relatively low, they may still be present. But it’s not clear whether, after a week, the analytes will be entirely metabolized by your system, or not. It’s probable, but the drug test will tell.

look am felling drug screening for positive cocaine and i dont use cocaine but takes alot of medicines for pain depression and chrolestol high blood anixety and i took some nequil the night before my screening n that morning cause i keep colds and sinsus infection CAN U PLEASE TELL ME IF ANY OF MY MEDICINES COULD CAUSE ME TOO HAVE A POSITIVE TEST FOR COCAINE

1:29 pm October 30th, 2012

Hi lisa k. Amoxicillin has been linked to false-positive urine drug screens for cocaine metabolites. If you suspect a false-positive drug screen, request a re-test or provide a hair sample. Also, produce a list of ALL the medications (and their prescriptions) to the drug testing center to evidence your ongoing therapies. While false-positive testing for cocaine is relatively uncommon, it is possible. Plus, the lab may have confused your sample for another person’s. Human error is always possible!

I tried a “bump” of cocaine, first time ever, Friday evening – I was very drunk and trying to impress a girl. Tuesday I was told I had 48 hours to perform a drug test. I performed it 130 hours from taking the bump. The test is with the military, so it would be 150 ng/ml and not 300. I weight 230 lbs, avg build and avg metabolism. Will I pass the test.

Jason
6:07 am October 31st, 2012

I might add, I did take a home drug test (300 ng/ml) a few hours prior to DoD UA test and I had two solid lines for COC.

11:05 am November 1st, 2012

Hi Jason. From the sound of your home testing kit, it’s possible that the cocaine use show up on the drug test. Good luck!

Stephen
8:12 am November 2nd, 2012

I most recently used to smoke crack almost daily for many months. I’ve been clean now for almost two weeks and I’m getting ready to enter a drug treatment facility next week. The rehab is out of state so I have a day or two of traveling to do to get there . I want/need to test positive when I arrive in order to get my insurance to cover my stay. Because I’m traveling it may not be possible for me to use the day before I go in, what is the MOST amount of days I could use prior to and still guarantee the cocaine positive result I’m looking for?

11:04 am November 6th, 2012

Hi Stephen. That sounds a little contrary to logic. If you need to test for the presence of cocaine in your system, you can always request a longitudinal look at cocaine use by asking for a hair analysis sample drug screen for cocaine.

Tramine Downey
11:41 pm December 5th, 2012

I was visiting family and my wife’s cousin asked if I’d like to smoke a blunt with him. I did but I haven’t felt like myself since that day about a month ago. I believe he laced the blunt with something, not sure what I was told by other family members he smoke crack. Is it possible for me to still feel so abnormal? Rapid heart beat, sweaty, dizzy, confused.

9:07 pm December 8th, 2012

Hi Tramine. From the description of the symptoms, it is possible that the blunt was laced with synthetic cannabinoids, or legal weed. This is not good news, in that the potent cannabinoids are not legal, not regulated by the FDA and experts still don’t know what effects they have in humans. If you think that you have real reason for concern, I’d suggest that you seek help from an MD, and possibly a psychiatrist…who may know more about the physical and mental side effects of such drugs.

Hi There,

I have a question i would like you to answer, I have a friend who has an offshore medical on 3rd Jan where he will have to provide a urine sample, He does’nt use cocaine normally but was offered a line on boxing day while he was drunk in the evening 26th december, He’s worried the test will be positive, I am really worried for him as i dont want him to lose his offshore job, Is there a good chance it will be positive after 7 1/2 days?, Like i say he is not a regular user and it was just one line, He’s 5ft 10 178cm) medium build weigh about 76kgs. Is there anything he can do to flush the cocaine or metabolytes out of his system quickly?, or is that just a myth.

Many Thanks

I get Shotguns from my Pretty girlfriends & it gives me a BUZZ so I get the best of Both worlds!!** I know CRACK/COCAINE is a Very powerful Drug but, there are some drugs out there now that make CRACK/COCAINE MILD 9OR make it have mild side effects)** compared 2 them like Crystal Meth./CRANK- (U know what I mean?!!)*** I know Crack doesn’t stay in ur Body/System- whatever long compared 2 pot or whatever b-cs. it’s (Powerful STUFF) but I have a Question: I know I’ll have a LIL’ CRACK in my system by getting those shotguns specially if I’m not smoking it but, how long will it stay in my system if i”m getting SHOTGUNS from my ladies?!** JUST CURIOUS??

DESPERATE! Just found out daughter was using crack/cocaine; she had a “new” friend we allowed to move in and were told she was a FORMER Addict (Do not EVER believe that! Story)
They robbed us blind, over 30k – I found out my daughter smoked & injected 3 times over last 2 months. We have her on complete lock-down for 15 days now. WHAT NEXT, I need advice, steps – I do have her on a vitamin program to assist w/ dopamine..b,c,e..ensures and good nutrition she has gained 15lbs back after loosing 20ish. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! She is head strong, I’ve read this IS IT; she will be an addict for the rest of her life HELP, PLEASE HELP

I used 1200.00 worth of crack on a three day run. Late afternoon on the day of my use I was picked up. I spent 6days in jail and then released. The following morning I was tested and tested Positive. I did not use in 7 days. The day after I tested positive I was tested again and came up negative. Is it posible that the crack was still in my system after 7 days.

I do not partake in any drugs. well I smoke cigs, and drink everyso often. Im 34. When I was 25 I still had never done any other drugs, but one day I decided to try crack. I was hooked instantly. For 3 weeks, I did it non stop. 2 weeks in I told my family. They took me to a detox in the third week. Its hard to believe, but I was heavily addicted, for 3 weeks. I was down to 88 pounds I range from 110-130) I had maybe one meal and two sleeps (with the help of sleeping pills) I swear gatorade saved my life. I was very lucky to have family as well as commen sense to seek help. After this, I never did it, nor any drug again. My family had to see a horrible part of me and this scared them. I believe the experience I went through changed me as a person, but they really have it stuck in there head that, crack and cocaine, changes your brain and can affect your personality.I may have some self esteem bumps, got a bit tougher, smarter, and less inncocent and optomistic, but this is from the experience. They often refer to how the crack may have changed my briain stucture, how I think and mental health (meaning mental health from the crack, not from the events and choices, ect) I end up trying to downplay it in front of them as they see this “precrack” “post crack” girl.. and i say it was just a binge.. well yeah it was a binge, but an addiction for sure that i justr got lucky to quit when i did. I know these drugs can wreck your brain, and your body, even cause phsycosis. But honestly a three weekhard go at crack, and this is going to change my brain chemistry?? Maybe a little? but to the extreme? never done drugs (weed i cant even smoke, tried it once freaked me out) My mother seems to focus on symptoms, such as I suffer dysthymia depression, one day a docotor tried to put me on lithium, to see if i was bipolar, lets just say, 3 docs, even the one that put me on lithium said no, im not bipolar and took me off lithium. My parents however, noticed everything about me, they read several books on biplolar, and one day my stepdad said “im living in a big bipolar bubble” basicly It got to the point where I had to yell at them that I am not bipolar, the docs tried it, they are very sure i have depression. I cant yell at them for this crack “transformation” and not very many times you hear people get “hooked” for 3 weeks.Im sure its caused some mental health in the sense of what i went through, who I hurt, ect, but I do not think it has affected my brain function. any info on short term addictions??? please??? when I was in detox, they laughed at me, as people were strugling off and on for years, and me 3 weeks.Noone has any facts about short term binge,addiction, and how it impairs you.

7:57 am February 9th, 2013

Hi Alana. Don’t let anyone fool you or make you feel less because the addiction that you experienced was shorter than most. I’m sure that you felt horrible, guilty and many similar emotions after just a few weeks smoking crack. Some of us just get off the elevator earlier than others. Good for you!

In terms of diagnosis and treatment, trust your doctors. But are you going to support groups? Have you tried NA or CA or SMART Recovery?

Need some analysis of a result showing positive for COC POS @ 2614 Ng/Ml. The last use was approx 60 days prior to the test. I am in recovery and need to present my result in court and be able to somehow show that the concentration is not indicative of current use or ongoing use. The lab would not offer any analysis of the number and said court only cares that you used, not how much but surely there is a difference between my result and say 10,000 + Ng/Ml?

My husband smoked between 100.00 to 300.00 dollars of crack cocaine,every day for 25 days out of 28 days. He weighs about 200 plds, and has now been drug free for 23days. He passed a 300 nanogram drug screen at home on the 23rd day so then went and was tested for employment but they used a 150 nanogram drug screen. What is the likely hood that he passed that one? Please Reply, worried for my family!!

new test taken after almost 6 months clean is still showing cocaine in hair. hair has been cut several times – when the last sample was taken it was EXACTLY 1.5 inches long which is minimum for the hair test. can this still be metabolizing in his system even after no use in 6 months?

I used crack for more than 20 years every single day. I know how it can be very devastating. I have been clean for more than 5 years now by the grace of my God. My question is why did I remain in a size 1-3 for all those years and within weeks of my quitting the weight came pouring on at a very fast rate. Now I am huge and can’t lose the weight. I am 5’4″ and I weigh about 250lbs. Did the crack do this to my body and what can I do about it? Remember I can’t risk trying to take anything that is not all natural because I never want to set the monster loose again. Thanks Tamara

Crack stays in my system for four days for me. I weigh 220 and am a lazy SOB. Oh yeah I smoke everyday about a half gram to whole. $ days I promise! I am in the legal system and I buy the home testing kit, well worth it, if you havent spent all your money on crack go buy one. Also, I take Niacin tablets (flush free) liver right, multi-vitamin and potassium. I dont know if taken this actually helps, but I do. Anyway what do you do crack for. If your a guy you’ll wind up jobless or in jail, if your young and attractive girl youll be a whore in three months! One more thing I am 43 and have a college degree a wife and twin boys 5. But I have a felony and cant get a job! Keep Smoking and keep the dope dealers rich. F em’

How does one fail a swab test for cocaine that has never done the drug. I am involved in a cps case over some marijuana, my drug of choice, and get swab tested 5 days a week plus randoms at my drug class i have to take on top of getting tested once a week from a family therapist, I had a whole month of clean screens and on nov 19th the day i got my kids back they cps said i tested positive for 10 ng/ml of cocaine which broke down to 4.6 ng/ml of the metabolite and 6 ng/ml of cocaine how could that be? And wasn’t told about my results for 6 days after the fact just long enough to not be able to prove myself although I did go to get blood work that came back clean and a urine test also clean, So my kids get removed again, Then I continue with all my testes as usual move on with all clean screens then on Jan 18th test positive again not sure of the ng/ml yet because it just happend wasn’t told about the results for 6 days once again, but went straight again to get a hair follicle test and took a urine test to which that was clean as well. Is there anything I can do to prove my innocence besides what I have already done? I will update my findings for the Jan 18th test. Really frustrated and Want my kids back.

I am looking for information supporting positive urine test from second hand crack cocaine smoke. For example, several people smoking crack in a room non stop while one person is in the room not smoking but trying to convince a family member to stop smoking and leave. Thirty minutes to an hour time in room.
