Naive girl needs advice on classic symptoms of cocaine use

I have read many articles on symptons of cocaine, crack use but I would like people who have witnessed it first hand to tell me what they are??? The more I hear from others, the easier it is to know and feel I am doing the right thing by staying away from my x addicted bf..

have you read "what addicts do" located at the top of the forum page? there is a lot of good info there. there is also another thread "things that drive you crazy while living with an addict" that have a lot of examples of what some of us had to go through. maybe this can help you, i don't know. i'm a recovering addict and in my opinion, the symptoms very from addict to addict.

there is common behavior, lieing ,stealing, disappearing for hrs and sometimes days, pawning stuff of valuable, unaccountable money missing. others will be along shortly to better answer your questions. the list can go on and on.

As teke said - that is everything my RAH did.

Lie - he would beleive his lies.
Disappear for days
Do things I would NEVER expect
Cheat
Money would disappear
Turn everything around to me

He had a daily habit that I had NO clue about until about a year into it. He would also drink when using.

just to add a few more, how could i forget. my addict blamed me for everything and tried his best to convince me that it was me who had the problem and that i was crazy. pretending he was always sick, to cover up for the way he looked to me and don't forget antsy or hyper.

As an addict we do all kinds of things. Read the stickys like they said.
But be careful. We as addicts are good at fooling you. What you are looking for may not always be the clue. And what we tell you may not always be the truth.

No I wouldn't go back to him right now if ever. Just looking for the positive reinforcement to feel confident about my decision to not contact him.

not looking you in the eye, swearing that he isn't on anything,no sex or a change in sexual behavior, not sleeping at nite, up every few hours, sleeping a lot during the day, missing work or messing up work days, distancing himself, spending more time with friends,parents,etc...except for you

I forgot about that one - Not Sleeping at Night!

Everytime my RAH wasn't in bed sleeping I knew something was up, he would use drugs (coke) and then drink. He would swear up and down he wasn't using, but then he would tell me.
