How to stop-Just stop. There is no dangerous withdrawal reaction to stopping cocaine.
Withdrawal symptoms-There will be the down feeling, the depression, that normally follows the high. Heavy users feel severely depressed. Some users also feel giddy when they stop. Many feel acutely paranoid. They also feel physically agitated, which is an unpleasant experience.
Advice-Get to as many meetings of Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous as you can, preferably at least once a day. If there is somebody with you for the first two or three days of coming off, that will help you stay away from dealers and drug-using friends. Taking some exercise will help dissipate the physical tension and make sleeping easier. Do not substitute other drugs or drink.

Withdrawals-You are likely to feel exhausted and depressed – just as you normally do when you come down from the drug. An insatiable hunger, known as ‘the munchies’, often follows withdrawal. Some people have stomach cramps. If you have developed delusions, paranoid ideas or hallucinations, these may take several months fully to disappear and you will need specialist psychiatric treatment.
