What is an Addiction?

People who are addicted seldom have control over what they take in. Seldom too do they have control of their actions thereafter. Although the initial decision to do something or take in alcohol or drugs is voluntary for most people, changes that happen in the brain over time hampers one’s self control and ability to resist the strong impulses for the substance they have become addicted to.

Many people do not completely understand why or how a person becomes addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. Others mistakenly assume that people who are addicted lack the willpower and moral principles – that they can get rid of the addiction simply by choosing to change their behavior. It is not that simple. Contrary to what many think, drug and alcohol addiction is a very complex disease. It takes more than good intentions and a strong will to quit. In fact, people who think they are ready to become sober will find it very difficult to actually stay away from the addiction because changes in the brain have resulted to the fostering of compulsive use and abuse of drugs and alcohol.
