Drug Addiction Counselling Edmonton
Substance addiction is a very progressing and relapsing condition. Drug overuse can be characterized by repeated alcohol or drug abuse despite visible or invisible harmful consequences. Dependence depends on the user’s ability to control substance abuse.
These fuel substance addictions depend on two things.
• One is tolerance,
• Two is dependence.
Someone abusing drugs or alcohol or not depends on these two factors. Those who have developed a tolerance level to a specific dose have the urge to increase the quantity. Soon it turns into dependence.
Symptoms of Drug addiction: –
• Urge to consume drugs even when not having health problems.
• Increase doses to get the same effect.
• You can’t stop yourself from using (or abusing) drugs and alcohol.
Tobacco Addiction Edmonton
Tobacco is one of the most widely used addictive substances in the world. Nicotine in tobacco is the leading cause of its addiction. When absorbed in the bloodstream or inhaled via cigarette smoke, it causes an adrenaline rush. It also releases dopamine (the happy chemical) associated with the brain’s pleasure and reward area. Moreover, this is the case with cigarettes and happens with smokeless forms of tobacco like snuffs or chewing tobacco.
Symptoms of Tobacco addiction:
• cannot stop taking tobacco despite trying to quit.
• Smoking becomes a must after meals.
• Continues to smoke despite health problems.

How does addiction start in the brain?
Whether it’s drugs or gambling or whatever, addiction starts with watching people in your surroundings, the close ones. Sometimes they say, “try it once and don’t have it again if you don’t like it,” whether in some cases, they say, “try it; nothing will happen.”
Moreover, this is how addiction starts in most cases. They are your best friends; they are your extended family. If they can try it, why not you? If they say it feels fantastic, then it has to be a tremendous feeling, right?
Moreover, this is how you start it. Then as time goes by, you liked the experience for the first time. You want to do it again, and then again and again. Moreover, this is how it becomes an addiction for you.
