Drug misuse can often be overlooked as it doesn’t become apparent as easily as addiction. However, misusing drugs whether they are legal or illegal can have a detrimental impact on your whole lifestyle and quality of life.
Misuse can begin with taking medications over the dosage stated, those which are prescribed for someone else or by taking them without a medical reason. Substance abuse can also be seen when a person is purposefully intoxicating themselves for the mind-altering effects of the drug.
However, this misuse and quite simply spiral into addiction which itself is a damaging route and not a way to live.
Spotting the signs of substance abuse is the first step. So, if you feel yourself becoming withdrawn from social situations, having functioning at work or around family members and responsibilities, have an irregular sleeping pattern or feel the need to overeat or loss of appetite, seek help as soon as possible.
These are all tell-tale signs you are slipping into a dependency of substance misuse.
Addiction is a disease. Alcoholism is an addiction. Smoking is an addiction. Addiction is a term that means the compulsive physiological need for and use of habit-forming substances such as nicotine or alcohol. It can be categorised by tolerance and defined by physiological symptoms upon withdrawal.
Recognising the physical and mental need for a drug or alcohol is the pathway to acceptance. Once you have understood that you depend on drugs or alcohol you need to seek help. Cravings are a massive part of this disease, as addiction is a chemical dependency on drugs or alcohol which influences the way the body and mind work.
Addictions form when the urge to take a substance hijacks the part of the brain that understands reward behaviour and provides benefits to the body. Substance-related disorders are also known to impact the area of the brain which is responsible for decision-making and emotions.
Tell-tale signs of addiction are abandoning commitments or ignoring relationships, a decrease in socialisation, an inability to stay away from the substance or the behaviours aligned with the substance.
People with addiction also use denial as a way to justify their behaviours and continued denial can cause destructive consequences, from major health issues to damaged, broken or lost relationships with others around you.
Ignoring major risk factors, such as sharing needles despite the serious consequences, are also visible behaviours seen in people suffering from addiction. If these issues sound like something you are dealing with, you may need to visit a drug & alcohol rehab in Erith.
