What is Addiction?
From someone who has never been an addict before, the concept of addiction can be quite difficult to comprehend. It can be difficult to understand why someone keeps up an addiction, and why they become addicted in the first place. Why would someone continue doing something that they know is going to be causing them harm? You can only truly understand addiction when you are an addict yourself. As an addict, your usual thoughts and feelings go out of the window and all that matters is the substance you’re addicted to. You become overwhelmed with cravings, urges, and withdrawals which keep you abusing that substance over and over again.
Addiction is an illness and is defined as a complex mental health condition. When someone is an addict they can feel lost, fragile, and may struggle to find the help they need. One of the main symptoms of addiction is the fact that addicts know the harm that these substances are doing to them, yet they still continue to consume them. Even when an addict thinks clearly, they are unable to stop themselves from continuing their addictive behaviours.
How Does an Addiction Start?
This is a question that many people are curious about when it comes to addictions. Sadly, addictions can come about all too easily. When someone has underlying mental health, issues combine with substance abuse, bad timing can cause terrible long-term addiction effects for many individuals. Social occasions in the United Kingdom often include drinking alcohol. Many people will often experiment with drugs in a harmful way and this can then lead to them becoming addicted to drugs. What often begins as a short-term high feeling may quickly spiral out of control. Many drugs are addictive immediately which can be worrying when people decide to experiment with these types of drugs.
Most people who decide to try drugs for the first time don’t realise how instantly addictive they can be and they aren’t often prepared for the negative effects that their experiments can have on them. Addiction can begin in many different ways. It can start as something as silly as a dare from a close friend. Other people may be subject to peer pressure or they may start taking drugs in an attempt to cover up the troubles in their life.
