Addiction, a disease.

Addiction has a physical and a psychological aspect. Right away physical addiction we mean that our brains adapt to the use of the substance, so you always need more of it to get the same effect. This mechanism is actually a kind of protective mechanism for the brain. It allows an alcoholic, for example, to move amounts of drink that could be fatal for someone who drinks little or never. If you stop using the drug, you sometimes get unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. That's why quitting is often so difficult. But not every substance is physically (equally) addictive.

De psychological addiction means that you crave the effect that the drug causes you. You have learned that a glass of wine, a cigarette, or a shot of heroin can do you good, making the temptation particularly strong even if you have physically taken off the drug in question.

De physical damage As a result of substance abuse differs depending on the substance, just think of lung cancer with cigarettes and cirrhosis of the liver with alcohol.

De psychological damage Substance abuse covers almost all possible mental illnesses that a human can have: mood disorders, anxiety disorders, sexual disorders, sleep disorders, psychotic disorders, delirium, dementia and memory disorders. Here, too, the damage differs from drug to drug.

You have a substance - and a behavioral addiction.

There are different types of addictions. What we know is that they work in the brain in the same way.

Substance addiction

Substance addiction or also called drug addiction is an addiction that is perpetuated by the continuous use of a substance or substance that gives an intoxication and as a result of which the user needs more of the same product or substance over time to feel good. .

Below are some addictions:

  • Cocaine addiction

  • sex / love / relationship

Drug addiction

An addiction that often goes unnoticed, in part because it involves legal substances, is addiction to medication and in particular to anti-anxiety and sleep aids, the so-called benzodiazepines such as diazepam, oxazepam and lorazempan and to painkillers based on opiates. The latter category has led to a real popular epidemic in the United States.
