The first time you take drug, you enjoy the feelings as it makes you high. As your body gets used to the drug, you will need more of it to experience the same intense reaction. This increasing tolerance to a drug is actually a growing addictions and before you know it, you are hooked on the drug. Addictions comes with a big price tag. The more drugs you want, the more money you need to 'feed the habit'. Drugs cost money and their effect make it difficult to maintain a steady source of income. Some people turn to crime, prostitution and other risky behaviours. Many are languishing in prison because of drug possession and other related problems. But they never imagined it would end like this. Truth is, all addicts start out believing that they could give up the drug whenever they wanted.
