Drug addicts lose the ability to make rational decisions and getting the next ‘hit’ takes precedence over everything else — career, family, loved ones, friends and even laws.They tend to spend every waking hour craving for a ‘fix’. To try and get money somehow, anyhow, by any means, to supply to that habit. To not bother about anything but that ‘feeling’ that nothing else matters. Even a drug addict knows they are spiralling towards destruction but are unable to control it. Watch this video to find out how you can deal with drug addiction and drug addicts.
What is drug addiction?
It is defined as a compulsive need to use drugs to function normally. A person usually encounters the addictive agent casually but soon becomes so dependent on it that he/she requires it to function. Drug addicts most often want to quit the habit, but find it difficult to do so, on their own. For this reason, there are a number of de-addiction clinics – for example AA (alcoholics anonymous), etc. Some research shows that an addict’s brain reacts to addictive agents differently when compared to those who are not addicted, leading to the idea that addiction might be a genetically acquired trait. The use of drugs causes both instant and long term damage to the body and mind. For example, they cause hallucinations, lack of inhibition, depression, euphoria, excess hunger, etc. immediately upon ingestion and loss of memory, lack in brain function, and damage to various organs in the body, rotting of the teeth and even cancer in the long run.
