Like any addicting drug (and even ADs which
are not said to be addicting per se but
withdrawal brings on the notorious "discontinuation syndrome"), certain variables
play a role in how difficult getting off
will be:

- time the drug has been taken

- dose that has been taken during that time

- abrupt or slow discontinuation from the

- other drugs causing a cross tolerance;

- and last, very last, the non-physical aspect
of withdrawal -- the personality of the person;
but I believe that if you give the same amount
of crack to Clint Eastwood and to Woody Allen,
under the same conditions, they will have
equal difficulty in getting off.

The same rule of pharmacology applies to
many drugs - if not, the preparation would
of pharmaceuticals would have to be tailored
differently for every single individual on
the planet, give or take a few pounds and
personal quirks.
