    It’s when someone feels as if they can’t cope without it.
    And people can start getting rid of thier addiction by taking less of it, and eventually leaving the drug.

    Drug addiction is when a person continues to use a drug beyond the point that it is fun and into the point that it is causing problems in their lives. The current school of thought is that you cannot be cured but you can find relief only through total abstinence from the drug of choice as well as any other mind altering substance. In most cases that relief goes right back into compulsive, obsessive craving the moment the drug is reintroduced back into the system of the addict. No matter how long they have abstained in between use. One very good way to get into recovery is through programs such as Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Here is another way to tell. Answer these questions and substitute the word drug for alcohol. Good luck.

    Its when you have cravings for a certain drug all the time, like how people crave chocolate or coffee its the same as craving for drugs accept much much more intense, and you know when someones or yourself is addicted when “its the only thing that makes you happy”

    my problem was meth and even though i didnt receive special help for it, I stopped by secluding myself from all the people i knew who did it with me & even my friends. I found other things to do like found a job and worked all the time, whenever i felt depressed about it i’d just work harder…

    you have to find something you like doing to let all that anxiety out, play a sport, learn a language, go to church, go to beach, do something beneficial and healthy for yourself. It’s not easy at first but its better to stop sooner then later or you might find that its either too late or extremely difficult to live without it.

    Drug addiction is when you have taken a drug that can cause addiction for a long enough period of time that your mind and your body has to have it. You cannot abrubtly taking drugs that you are addicted to as this will cause withdrawal symptoms that can be extremely dangerous. To get off of the drug you need to do it with a doctor’s supervision you cannot do it alone. You can also check yourself into a hospital for withdrawal and rehab which helps you learn the skills you need to not become addicted again. If you are having this problem I hope that you will get help.
