Addiction and substance abuse can enable you to avoid facing the painful aspects of life. When an individual is addicted to something, not having it leads to withdrawal symptoms. These unbearable feelings makes it difficult to keep away from what you crave, and the addiction grows.
The constant urge to manage addiction can be severely harmful when it affects to your health, work performance, and relationships. Addiction can eventually have extreme psychological and physical effects, which can be difficult to overcome without help.
Regardless of how addiction starts, there is always a way to end it and make a positive change to your life.
Abuse is indicated by recurring, negative consequences, such as:
Failure to meet social, work, and academic obligations.
Physical injury or illness.
Alcohol- or drug-related legal problems, such as arrest for driving while intoxicated.
Relationship problems with intimate partners, friends, and family.
Impulsive behaviour, such as spending money excessively.
Diminished interest in other activities.
Short-term memory loss or blackouts.
