    Hypothetically speaking, if there were a person who was extremely wealthy, where the money was so vast that it would not run out, how much could such a person spend if he had a cocaine addiction where he is using daily, and cost was not an issue.

    I have no idea how much cocaine costs or how much a person could use, but let's say this person uses the maximum amount daily that is reasonably possible for a chronic user who uses daily who has developed tolerance. Please limit the estimated cost to his personal usage (not for amounts used by friends who might be using his supply with him.)

    Thanks so much for any replies!

    Obviously price discussion is against the rules, so we wont be discussing buying X amount a day/week/month/year at X amount per gram/oz/pound.

    Its not really a question that could be answered to give a real idea of how much could be spent. You're guess would be as good as anyone Else's. If a person was a multi-millionaire and did nothing but take cocaine then if they wanted to they could spend multi-millions of euros/pounds/dollars/whatever.

    If money was no object then you could also factor in transport, purity, hospital treatments and all sorts of other crap that would be as much a part of the addiction/use as the cost of the drug itself.

    Hundreds of thousands to Millions is probably as close as you will get.

    Q. How much could a cocaine addict spend per year on his/her addiction?
    A. As much as it takes.

    it could easily and isn being done DAILY and the amount a person may take depends on many variables, their budget (filthy rich and no budget - budget), how your body reacts, your mind, how your internal organs handle, discharge / process it ... and if you have a persnal chef that cooks healthy foods that will help cleanse you of toxins or if you take care of yourself after the session.

    Hope you see where I am going?

    ultimately UNTIL YOUR HEART EXPLODES AND YOUR $ RUNS OUT.

    I think it would be perfectly feasible to for someone to spend 50k a year if money was no object.

    50k could be done easy. This little junkie once used 3.5grams/day on average,,,either cooked back to base and smoked or straight for the vain. Coke is rediculously expensive here in australia, you wouldnt beileve me if i told u how much i blew.

    How much could a person spend?
    All of it!

    I don't care how much money you have in the bank, once you start down that road you will continue until the well runs dry. God forbid they should discover crack, hoo-boy, there's an overdraft waiting to happen.

    This recoveredcrackhead thinks you're taking the wrong angle on the problem. Confining the problem is not a solution, it always gets worse.

    Well, I figured it out, and I spend $20,000 on marijuana alone last year. So you can probably spend a lot more with cocaine.

    How much you get at a time, local value and amount used all come into play. Whatever number someone could come up with would not really give you any kind of conclusive information.

    Millions of dollars for personal use even over decades? Probably not, you would be dead long before that.

    Close to $100,000 in a year? plausible.

    Jean-Luc Delarue, a famous french show host, was arrested a year ago for possession of cocaine. It was revealed he would use 5 grams a day, and spend over 100,000 euros a year on it (over 136,000 USD).

    A friend of mine is just the right example, confirming the one and only simple rule - youll spend it all and will try to double it in the end. It was no less than 800$ per day for him for years...And he would not hesitate infront of anything to secure his dayly consumption. And even when he eventually hit the ground and the usual cash flow stopped he managed somehow to continue spending little fortunes once or twice a week, getting his head more and more burried in the sand. So IMO there is no such thing as keeping the habit under control and thinking you can handle every twist and turn. You just get hooked and start floating. Just my oppinion.:)
