Drugs are mind-altering substances, producing the euphoric feeling (high) that makes them addictive. Many individuals fall under the grip of drug addiction to escape reality or artificially produce feelings of pleasure and the illusion of a stress free environment. Different drugs affect each individual differently, depending on many factors, many of which are unknown to the user at the time of abuse.

Drug addiction is widely considered a pathological state.The disorder of addiction involves the progression of acute drug use to the development of drug-seeking behavior, the vulnerability to relapse, and the decreased, slowed ability to respond to naturally rewarding stimuli. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) has categorized three stages of addiction: preoccupation/anticipation, binge/intoxication, and withdrawal/negative affect. These stages are characterized, respectively, everywhere by constant cravings and preoccupation with obtaining the substance; using more of the substance than necessary to experience the intoxicating effects; and experiencing tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, and decreased motivation for normal life activities. By definition, drug addiction differs from drug dependence and drug tolerance

Hard 2 tell. I have known some soldiers who sunk into drug abuse of hard drugs after they retired from their service. They said they simply felt useless and society treated them as such after their discharge.
