Understanding Addicts and How It Affects You

Getting hooked and addicted has its process but often the end result is that they tend to focus on short-term levels of enjoyment but has negative effects in the long term to the individual’s health, relationships, finances, at work and will disrupt lives of everyone involved as a whole.

As most addicts know firsthand, getting hooked on something – be it physical, emotional or chemical substances is rather difficult to break, especially if the person addicted to it is always looking to experience the kind of emotional and physical release that they always get whenever they are able to acquire their object of addiction.

In general, once the person is classified as having a chemical addiction, this means that their dependence lies mainly on drugs and substance abuses. One of the main indicators that will identify an addict is their tendency and desire to obtain that particular substance they are addicted in – and without it, they are affected physically and psychologically enough to impede them from behaving normally.

In the event that the individual is appreciating something, it is but a normal phase unless there is a heightened level of desire that had become insatiable already, particularly if it has negatively affected the person’s way of thinking and behaving (yet would tend to feel sorry and regret greatly their past behaviors) then that can be considered as psychological addiction.

Feelings of rejection and refusal to acknowledge that they have an addiction issue is one of the many levels of protection that an addict has built in order to shield himself; recognize that, once they are able to perceive their shortcomings and would willingly admit to themselves that they do indeed suffer from some sort of addiction, then that is the start of treatment. In effect, every aspect of the addict’s life – personal, family and even working relationships – are gradually obliterated until nothing would be left except the increasing level of dependence to the object of their fixations.

Humans thrive by being dependent on someone or something in general, as long as it is within reason and still governed by proper mental judgement then there would be no problem, but anything that becomes uncontrollable and has adverse effects on the body, can already be considered as an addiction. Addiction prompts wrongdoings and is often against social conducts as addicts sometimes tend to act foolishly and irrationally, basically destroying familial and social foundations since they are already beyond reasoning.

In order to manage this, the addict has to willingly submit to a recovery process from alcohol and drug use so that anything tormenting their body and minds can be stopped, and their addictions controlled easily. As long as there is a solid support surrounding the junkie, this can be resolved.
