Addiction is a psychological and physical inability to stop consuming drugs, drinks, or other substances, even though they may be causing psychological and physical harm. Everyone should be aware of this, both for their own safety and that of their loved ones.

Any drug that creates a chemical imbalance in a person’s body or causes euphoric effects can be dangerous. Many drugs will interact with the the brain and body to release certain feel-good chemicals such as endorphins, dopamine and serotonin. By releasing these chemicals, the drug provides a pleasurable feeling but can result in the body needing the drug to maintain the necessary chemical balance. That forms a physical dependence on the substance in addition to the psychological one created when the brain associates the euphoric high and positive feeling to the use of the drug. Most dangerous drugs can affect the body and mind in this way.
