After the initial use of crack Cocaine, dependency can evolve and keep growing since that first high can't be reached with the same dose of the drug.
Crack Cocaine is a substance similar to mineral, which means it is strong and has a white colouration. This form can be achieved by concocting Cocaine powder with baking soda and water and heating it to form a hard/crystal crack. Inhalation of smoke from burning it is the method used to ingest it.
It is said that the name crack is derived from its sound during the heating process of making it. Rock, candy, base, kryptonite, base, sleet, cookies or, simply, crack, are some of the synonyms for crack Cocaine.

Dependency To Crack
Crack is a much stronger substance than regular Cocaine. It is also far more addictive than regular Cocaine.

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.
Eventually, they develop a tolerance to its pleasurable effects and suffer from withdrawal symptoms when they stop using it, which makes them want the crack more and more. 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.
