A drug addiction will always start with a decision to try a substance, also bear in mind that you can make a decision to stop taking that substance. Drugs and substances interfere with ‘normal’ brain functioning and then can cause long term effects with brain metabolism and with brain function and activity. The effect is that then these changes will affect and change the brain and behaviours to go from trying something out to full on addiction, addiction will consist of physical dependency and/or psychological dependency.

Hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT, life coaching and positive psychology when used in combination can be useful for breaking the habit and for developing new and more useful patterns of thought, behaviour and coping techniques to stay off the drugs. There will be a root for all people in taking drugs and finding this will have a massive effect in being able to understand the reasons why the addiction took hold.

Physical dependency of a substance is defined by the appearance of withdrawal symptoms when the substance is suddenly taken away or stopped. Some examples of such substances are alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, barbiturates and nicotine. Common withdrawal symptoms include sweating, tremors, insomnia, vomiting and headaches.

Psychological dependency is a dependency of the mind and when the substance is withdrawn this often leads to withdrawal symptoms such as depression, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, headaches, nausea as well as the cravings for the substance (and many, many more).


There are many causes, triggers and reasons why people may abuse drugs and these reason(s) will be different for different people and there will often be a combination. Some of the more common reasons are:

  • Peer pressure
  • Escapism
  • Feeling the need to experiment
  • Believes that drugs may help to solve problems
  • Enjoyment of the effects of a particular drug

Stimulants are drugs that increase the activity of the central nervous system and often give feelings of greater confidence, alertness and energy. Cocaine and crack, ecstasy, nicotine, amphetamines, alkyl nitrites and anabolic steroids are all stimulants.

Depressants are drugs that reduce the activity of the central nervous system and usually cause impaired judgement, coordination and balance. Alcohol, solvents, heroin, tranquillisers and barbiturates are depressants.

Hallucinogens will alter the perceptions of reality, and change the way individuals will experience the world through their 5 senses. LSD, cannabis, ketamine and magic mushrooms are hallucinogens.

Drug Addiction

Addiction is a disease that affects your brain and behavior. When you’re addicted to drugs, you can’t resist the urge to use them, no matter how much harm the drugs may cause. The earlier you get treatment for drug addiction, the more likely you are to avoid some of the more dire consequences of the disease.

Drug addiction isn’t about just heroin, cocaine, or other illegal drugs. You can get addicted to alcohol, nicotine, sleep and anti-anxiety medications, and other legal substances.

You can also get addicted to prescription or illegally obtained narcotic pain medications, or opioids. This problem is at epidemic levels in the United States. In 2018, opioids played a role in two-thirds of all drug overdose deaths.

At first, you may choose to take a drug because you like the way it makes you feel. You may think you can control how much and how often you use it. But over time, drugs change how your brain works. These physical changes can last a long time. They make you lose control and can lead to damaging behaviors.
