Geeking is the word drug abusers use to describe binge crack use. They use crack over and over in short periods of time, using higher doses to stay high for long periods of time. Binge use of crack cocaine can quickly lead to addiction. Individuals also use the term “geeking” to describe the paranoia which is apparent in people using crack. It is also possible for crack users to develop paranoid psychosis. Paranoid psychosis is an extreme case of paranoia which causes the user to lose touch with reality. However, this is only a temporary condition.
Crack cocaine, also called rock cocaine, is a synthetic form of cocaine that has been processed into rock-like crystals. The crystals are heated and smoked (usually in a pipe) to get the high that users get from the drug. It was previously called “rock” because of the appearance of the crystals. More recently, it has been called “crack” because of the crackling noise it makes while it is heating and being smoked.
Crack cocaine is cheaper than powdered cocaine. The high does not last very long with crack. Therefore, those individuals who are addicted to crack spend enormous amounts of money to retain their high. When someone is addicted to crack, they will steal money or other valuables to be able to continue buying their drug of choice. They will do almost anything in order to obtain their drugs.
Crack is highly addictive, affecting key pleasure centers in the brain. It produces extreme euphoria and a compulsion develops for the drug immediately. A tolerance to crack develops quickly because the high only lasts a few minutes, and more is needed to remain high for any lengthy period of time.
