Crack Cocaine is a hard white coloured mineral-like drug. Crack comes in form of "rocks" which is created when the original mix of ammonia or baking soda with Cocaine powder dries off. While others use aluminium wrapping or tin cans (for soft drinks) to evaporate and then smoke it, most people use a pipe made of glass.
The sound made when heating the drug is what gave rise to its name 'crack'. It however has many aliases but do not be fooled, whichever name it goes by it is still the same notorious drug.

Smoking crack is said to develop addiction more quickly than snorting the powder form. It can be said that it is highly likely for a first-time crack user to develop the addiction. They need more crack to sustain the high because it so intense, which makes them feel really good, but also very brief. Without the users realizing it, they have already been strangled by the addiction to crack Cocaine after some time. They will no longer feel normal without the crack Cocaine because crack Cocaine damages their brain.
Withdrawal symptoms are more likely to be exhibited by newly addicted crack smokers when attempting to stop its use. The brain eventually loses its ability to naturally produce dopamine (a chemical the brain produces to make a person feel happy) because it will rely on the crack to force-release excess amounts of dopamine.
The craving is what makes it the most difficult when they try to be clean. Some users also just want to avoid the hardship of withdrawal by coming back to the drugs. Because of this, any bad side effects caused by the substance are usually ignore by the addict.
