  • People who struggle with cocaine abuse may mix the drug with alcohol to reduce cocaine’s negative effects, like anxiety or twitching, by adding a depressant. In some cases, mixing cocaine and alcohol occurs because of a social situation. In some instances, a person who drinks too much may take cocaine to increase their physical energy. There are many reasons people may mix these drugs together, but it can be very dangerous to do so. Both alcohol and cocaine increase impulsive and risky behavior, decrease the ability to make judgments, and reduce cognitive function. Alcohol also increases the likelihood of memory problems, so a person may not remember risky behaviors they engaged in the night before.
