Drug abuse addiction( By-Goel & Company Ludhiana)

  1. 1. Drugs – What they Are and What they Do ? A drug, is any substance that, when absorbed into the body of a living organism, alters normal bodily function. Drugs are chemicals that change the way a person's body works by altering emotions and thoughts.
  2. 2. Drug abuse is an intense desire to obtain increasing amounts of a particular substance. Drug dependence is the body's physical need, or addiction, to a specific agent. Over the long term, this dependence results in physical harm and behavior problems which causes tolerance and cross tolerance. Thus, it creates a vicious cycle.
  3. 3. Legal drugs are not necessarily safer. A study in 2010 asked drug-harm experts to rank various illegal and legal drugs. Alcohol was found to be the most dangerous. It is believed that drug abuse only harms the user but this graph clearly depicts that it not just harms the person but destroys the whole family ,his profession, and life.
