Back in the seventies Robin Williams took a lot of cocaine. And was famously with John Belushi on the night he died. But, like a hyperactive childen given the stimulant ritalin, he found it calmed him down.
Cocaine for me was a place to hide. Most people get hyper on coke. It slowed me down. Sometimes it made me paranoid and impotent, but mostly it just made me withdrawn.
Williams is also credited with the famous coke joke:
Cocaine is God’s way of saying you’re making too much money.
