A New View of Drug Addiction

“A moment’s insight is sometimes
worth a life’s experience.”
-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

“Knowledge is power.”
-Francis Bacon

The more you know about a problem, the better equipped you are to solve it. By reading this page, you’ll learn more about drug addiction—why you crave a particular drug and what it gives you in return.

Drug addiction changes everything about you. It becomes a way of life, a deeply ingrained pattern with physical, emotional, and even spiritual edges. There are many parts to it. With the new perspective on drug addiction presented on this page, you’ll take a look at addiction from the user’s point of view. This will help you get acquainted with the user—and the nonuser—inside of you. Then, when you’re ready to quit, you can become the nonuser without any fear of drugs.

This seven-part perspective shows how drugs affect the whole person. As you read it, you’ll gain a complete understanding of addiction. You’ll not only look at the benefits that you gain from a particular drug but you’ll also examine the problems it causes.
