An internal battle
Chemical dependency and substance abuse are disorders – sometimes hereditary – and are characterized by a destructive habit. In addition to tolerance to or withdrawal from the substance, addiction can cause any number of problems at home, at school, or at work.
Almost any substance can create an addiction. Although specific physical and psychological effects differ from person to person, the general effects of drug abuse can be devastating. When you’re ready to quit it’s important to have a treatment plan ready, as withdrawal symptoms can be very dangerous and you should not stop “cold-turkey” on your own.
Alcohol withdrawal can cause anxiety, delirium tremens, and seizures. Withdrawal from opiates like heroine and codeine can cause muscle cramps, fatigue and diarrhea. More serious drugs such as Dexamphetamine (speed) and MDMA can cause psychosis or suicidal thoughts when individuals discontinue the dosage.
