Addiction: When & where to get help

Free Hearts Amagara

The process of addiction is gradual. One may be able to notice as they lose control while other times it takes family, friends and workmates to be able to notice that one is struggling with an addiction. Addiction simply starts with tasting or trying a drug of abuse, this is usually described as the Experimental stage. Here, the drug is seen as fun and most users are first time users mostly under peer pressure or just trying to look for pleasure.

Once the pleasure principal is attained it is possible for one to continue using and thus becoming a social user, where the drug has not taken priority over other life activities and experiences. In social use, the urge to use only comes at social gatherings or occasions where the drug is made available.
