Addicted

addtrecvTo Recovery Blog. a blog about life, recovery, sobriety.


Historically, addiction has been defined as physical and psychological dependence on psychoactive substances (for example alcohol, tobacco, heroin and other drugs) which cross the blood-brain barrier once ingested, temporarily altering the chemical milieu of the brain.


Addiction can also be viewed as a continued involvement with a substance or activity despite the negative consequences associated with it.


Pleasure and enjoyment would have originally been sought, however over a period of time involvement with the substance or activity is needed to feel normal.
