Drug & Addiction
A drug is a vegetable, mineral or animal substance that has a stimulating, hallucinogenic, narcotic or depressing effect. It is known as the soft drug to one that has a low addictive degree, such as cannabis, while a hard drug is strongly addictive (such as cocaine and heroin).
On the other hand, drugs are the raw materials of biological origin that are used, either directly or indirectly, for the preparation of medicines. The chemical composition of the drug provides a pharmacological action that is useful for therapy.
At a general level, drugs are known as substances that, when introduced into the body, can alter or modify their functions. People can take drugs for the pleasure they generate, although the suspension of consumption generates a psychic malaise. Excessive drug intake, on the other hand, has negative consequences for the body. It is known as drug addiction to the need to use drugs to obtain pleasurable sensations or eliminate some type of pain.
According to the effects on the central nervous system, drugs can be classified as depressants (inhibit their functioning and generate slowness in nervous activity, such as alcohol, morphine, methadone and heroin), stimulants (increase bodily functions and excite the central nervous system, as occurs with cocaine, caffeine, nicotine and amphetamine) or hallucinogenic (disturbing consciousness and distort perception, as do the LCD and peyote).
It should be noted that there are legal drugs that can be purchased free or under medical prescription, while other drugs are illegal (can only be purchased on the black market ).
When drug use is stopped, there are specific abstinence syndromes for which a person passes that are different for each drug. With heroin or prescription opioids, a person feels sick, has vomiting and muscle and bone pain, feels restless and depressed, suffers from muscle spasms and much more.
A person who stops consuming high doses of alcohol may experience seizures, coma and even death, so in many cases, they should be medically supported during the withdrawal.If a person is leaving a stimulant such as cocaine, they are likely to feel very depressed, to the point of suicide. They can also be paranoid, exhausted and hungry. A person who withdraws from marijuana may feel irritable, anxious, depressed and suffer from sleep disturbances when they stop using it. In almost all cases, people in the withdrawal of a drug will experience strong cravings for the drug that they have stopped consuming.
Alcohol is a depressant that decreases brain function and body poisons. Ethyl alcohol or ethanol is the basic chemistry found in all alcoholic beverages. Ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, is the basic chemical that all alcoholic beverages contain. It is produced, generally, by the fermentation of fruits, vegetables or cereals. Fermented drinks contain a maximum of 15% pure alcohol (wine, beer, cider). Distilled beverages, such as spirits, snacks and spirits, can contain up to 45% pure alcohol. Alcoholic beverages are therefore more or less powerful or have large doses of pure alcohol. These beverages can be made following different recipes, flavoured, sweetened, mixed, coloured, etc. It is indisputable that to know its effects we should not look at its composition but the degree of pure alcohol that it contains: it remains the same substance, and produces the same effect.
Introduced into the human body as a drink, alcohol passes quickly into the blood and it carries it to other organs, including the most sensitive ones: the brain and the liver. Once the alcohol is in the blood, no food or drink can delay or prevent its effects. The sugar in fruits can accelerate the process of removing alcohol from the blood and reduce the duration of its effects.
Cocaine is extracted from the leaves of the coca plant. Cocaine is an important stimulant of the central nervous system. This is the drug that creates the greatest psychological dependence. Cocaine is usually snorted. This is the most common method of use. It is called ‘Crack’
when it is smoked, the user inhales the smoke after having heated it (This operation causes crunches, hence its name.)
Effects of a general nature:
● State of enthusiasm that can lead to hallucinations and delirium, accompanied by muscle tremors and jerks.
● The piercing of the nostrils for consumers who inhale in the product.
● Death due to seizures, hypothermia, heart failure, etc. as a result of an overdose.
● In the long term, there are schizophrenia and/or paranoia syndromes.
Effects of crack:
The consumption of crack produces more intense effects than those of cocaine: it reaches the brain more quickly, but its duration is shorter.
The “flash” characteristic of crack produces an immediate sensation of intense euphoria. It lasts between five minutes and a quarter of an hour.
Steroids Anabolic steroids are synthetic origins molecules whose structure is similar to that of testosterone, a male hormone. These steroids are originally used under strict medical indications, but they deviate from their use by athletes for doping purposes.
Anabolic steroids are taken orally or by injection. They are usually taken by cycles (weeks or months), rather than continuously. In addition, users often combine several types of steroids in order to maximize their effectiveness while minimizing the negative effects.
Anabolic steroids are synthetic products. The goal is to produce molecules similar to testosterone. The full name is “of the anabolic androgenic steroids”. Originally, these products are for therapeutic purposes. They were kidnapped by athletes (including bodybuilders) who wish to increase their muscle mass. The doses used by bodybuilding practitioners are often 20 to 30 times higher than the therapeutic doses!
Steroids can involve a whole series of psychological effects ranging from euphoria to hostility.
Reactions to steroids may vary depending on the individual and the type of steroid.
Heroin or diacetylmorphine is a very addictive drug derived from morphine, the main alkaloid of the poppy. Heroin can be inhaled or smoked, the fact of smoking eliminates the stigma associated with intravenous drug use.

Heroin quickly causes a strong psychic and physical dependence.
Its users only think about consuming it.
Somatic effects are heat, analgesia, miosis, bradycardia, hypotension, poor intestinal transit, decreased libido. Its respiratory crisis may cause death by overdose – if the product contains more active substance – or after a period of abstinence – when the tolerance has disappeared.

LSD is taken orally; It is usually done by ingesting a piece of paper, but it can also be inhaled or injected. It is barely noticeable in drinks and meals. It can also be put in the eyes. The LSD begins to take effect at 30 or 40 minutes and can last from 4 to 24 hours.
Effects on the central nervous system:
LSD is a stimulant of the central nervous system that seriously disturbs the action of the neurotransmitters of serotonin and stimulates the receptors of dopamine.
● “Psychedelic journey”, mystical meditation.
● Modification of perceptions, of the concept of time and space, distortion of images and colours, confusion between images and sounds.
● An extreme impression of mental acuity and lucidity.

Acute neurotoxic effects:
● Acute psychiatric complications that can last 24 hours.
● Frequent reactions to violence (homicides) as well as incidents of self-aggression (intentional falls, self-mutilation).
● Attacks and brain deficits. There are cases of central vascular spasms and irreversible neurological damage (Flashback) that can last several years after the last ingestion in 15% of users.
Opium is a psychoactive preparation obtained from the latex of the opium poppy. It can be transformed into morphine or heroin. It is a substance of vegetable origin richer in alkaloids.
It is absorbed orally. It also can be smoked or eaten.
The first shots cause nausea, it is only after the user feels a sense of euphoria and elation.
