Drug addiction becomes a problem that negatively interferes with your daily life. In addition to psychological and physical dependence, drug use involves spending a great deal of your time thinking about using drugs, seeking for drugs, and spending time using drugs.
Substance abuse can sometimes cause violent behaviors. Lack of self control under the influence can cause unwanted behaviors.

Drugs overflow your brain with a chemical called dopamine which triggers feelings of intense pleasure. Your brain will seek to repeat these experiences that make you feel good by motivating you to repeatedly use the same substances. Getting used to the extra dopamine, your brain will seek for more of the drug’s effects each time, causing changes in your brain’s chemical systems and circuits.
