How Does Addiction Develop

When you try a drug for the first time, it produces exaggerated effects. Some of these might be psychological in nature; however, a majority of the effects are drug induced. As you continue to engage in the activity of taking drugs and enjoying its pleasurable effects, you begin to reach a state where the dosage does not produce the required effects. This is when you develop what is called a tolerance for the drug.

Under this phenomenon, your body grows accustomed to the drug. Now, whenever you take the dosage that you are accustomed to, your body does not experience the usual high. This of course forces you to increase your drug intake. And the vicious cycle of addiction begins because now you have to continually increase your dosage just to feel a regular high.

This will scare you because you do not want to be dependent on it, so the instant reaction is to stop. Unfortunately, this only further aggravates your health condition because you start to suffer from what are called, withdrawal symptoms.
