Problems Associated with Addictions & Drug Withdrawal


Alcohol is said to be our ‘favourite drug’. Taking too much too often, we can become ‘hooked’ and dependent, leading to spiralling excess and addiction.

There are many similar drugs, some legal, like cigarettes, but many illegal like heroin, cocaine, ‘ecstasy’ (or MDMA) and other amphetamines.

Young people as well as those much older can become addicted. Lives and livelihoods often fall apart in the wake of serious addictions.

Addiction can also be to many other things such as gambling, pornography and even social media! Beware.
