An Introduction to the Disease of Addiction
who is affected by drug addiction?
Addiction is a disease that affects the brain and consequently an individual’s behavior. When someone is addicted to drugs, they are unable to overcome the urge to consume them, no matter how dangerous the substances are to their health. People can get addicted to both illegal substances like cocaine and heroin, and legal substances like painkillers, alcohol, and nicotine.
When you are addicted to drugs, you find it impossible to stop; it doesn’t matter whether it hurts your health, finances, or your loved ones. The unending urge to acquire drugs can come at any time, even if you are willing, or even attempting, to quit the bad habit. The fact is, your brain is wired in a way that drives you to chase the “high” moment again. Addictive drugs flood your brain with endorphins like dopamine, which makes you feel good. As a result, you’ll keep on consuming the drugs to achieve that intense pleasure. Over time your brain becomes accustomed to the additional dopamine; therefore, you must increase the quantities consumed in order to maintain that original high feeling.
Consequently, you find less pleasure in food or hanging out with your family, since the previous activities that you enjoyed don’t release the immense quantity of endorphins that drugs create in an addict’s brain. Moreover, since the brain is fairly plastic and malleable, your brain’s chemical structure and circuitry may change from long-term drug use. Your judgment, decision-making, memory, and ability to learn will be intensely affected as a result.
What are the Signs & Symptoms of Drug Addiction?
If you are trying to determine whether or not you or a loved one is suffering from addiction, there are common warning signs that are indicators of substance abuse as opposed to recreational use. Warning signs of being addicted can include:
- An unending urge to consume the drug on a daily basis, or multiple times in a day.
- Using more drugs than you originally intended to, and for a longer time than you had expected.
- Always possessing the drug and purchasing it even if you can’t afford to do so.
- You continue to consume the drug regardless of potential consequences like losing your job, or severing ties with your loved ones.
- You like to be alone more often than you did previous to the drug use.
- You have begun to neglect your personal hygiene.
- You steal, cheat, or engage in foolish and dangerous behaviors like operating an automobile while high or engaging in unsafe sexual intercourse.
- Spending a lot of time acquiring, consuming, or recovering from drug effects.
- Feeling ill when you attempt to stop using the drug.
You should get help when your drug usage has gone completely out of control and is causing problems to your health and other aspects of your life. Seek the help of a doctor. There is no cure for this disease, but treatment can go a long way in helping you quit and live a drug-free life.
“Recovery has been the best gift I’ve ever received in my life.”
