Many people take harmful substances without giving any thought to the damage that will occur to their body or their life. It is only those who get to the stage of drug rehab that realise the truth. For those people have already experienced losing just about all the things that make life worthwhile, including loved ones and their sense of self worth.
While it is true that taking one harmful substance once won’t make you an addict, it can still cause severe health and even mental problems. Addiction often starts through peer pressure, especially if a young person is having trouble or perceived trouble at home. They take the substance once and when it makes them feel good, they want to repeat that feeling.
