(RESOLVED!) How Does Addiction Develop?

Many people don’t understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs 🔥 They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to 😊 In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will 😎 The brain is affected by drugs in such a way that it can be difficult for anyone to give up. Researchers have discovered more about drug abuse and developed treatments to help addicts get clean and live productive lives. [1]
A healthy brain rewards healthy behaviourss—like exercising, eating, or bonding with loved ones. The brain switches on the brain circuits that make it feel good, which motivates people to do those same things again. In contrast, when you’re in danger, a healthy brain pushes your body to react quickly with fear or alarm, so you’ll get out of harm’s way. If you’re tempted by something questionable—like eating ice cream before dinner or buying things you can’t afford—the front regions of your brain can help you decide if the consequences are worth These are the results.

People often refer to themselves casually as “chocolate addicts” and “workaholics” when referring to addiction. But addiction isn’t something clinicians are comfortable with. Surprised to discover that there was no current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Addiction. Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5), the term addiction did not appear in any version of the American Psychiatric Association’s diagnostic manual, the reference book that physicians and psychotherapists use to identify and classify mental health disorders. The most recent edition of the book includes addiction. This category covers both substance abuse and other non-substance disorders like gambling disorder or alcohol use disorder.

Further reading can be found at addictioncenter.comThe more someone uses a drug to excess, the greater the chance they will continue to use it until they are treated for a serious addiction. After the chemical is in the brain, people can feel the effects of it throughout the nervous system. Paranoia, nausea and hallucinations are some of the symptoms. A person may get so addicted to the substance that they will continue abusing it, no matter how much. Individuals can become addicted to substance abuse and begin to act in new ways that may be confusing for their friends. [4]
Greenfacts.org This page provides more information. Box 2 explains that some substances have rewarding effects, but this does not explain why they can cause dependence. The physical dependence of substances can also lead to dependence. However, withdrawal symptoms after stopping substance abuse may be a sign that substance dependency has developed. This is especially true if the substance is used for a long time. Why is it that people become dependent on psychoactive substances, even if they are not using them? Is there a process that causes substance-seeking behaviorin some people to become compulsive and addictive? And what is the cause of the inability of stopping substance-taking, which is known as the problem with relapse. The complex interaction of neurobiological, social and psychological factors seems to be the cause. Leeander Reyes, July 31, 2021 modified this text [5]
