What are the long term effects, years after quitting crack?
A friend of mine was a heavy-using crack addict for 12 years, but quit on his own 13 years ago and has not touched crack since.
While I find it admirable that he quit on his own and is able to stay clean, I’m wondering if there may be some long-term effects, such as some brain chemistry changes. He does have extreme mood swings, but I’m not sure if that’s his personality or something caused by his 12 years of crack use. I’ve researched this online and can’t find this kind of information.
Does anyone know?
