To alleviate emotional or physical pain, a person could experiment with substances or alcohol. One may use drugs or alcohol in a social setting, and choose to take them another time simply to have a good time. Relieved of emotions of discomfort, the individual can continue to use substances or alcohol again, and again, and so on.
• Abuse
Before long the person increases usage to maintain the yearned for effects of bliss and escape from reality. Drunk of origin are left unattended and/or unresolved. If the person did not have problems at the onset of use, problems will soon be fabricated following the use. Constant attempts to gratify the physical body's cravings for the substance or alcohol develop into the person's all new reality.
• Addiction
Great time and effort is spent acquiring the alcohol or substances. When the addict or alcoholic is totally entrenched in the cycle of addiction, the health, financial, emotional and social penalties appear. The addict could just feel that they have been unlucky, or blame the consequences on others rather than their addiction.
