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.
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.
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

the person but

lot sharper. I don’t feel lazy anymore.”
