From an early age we are told the dangers of drugs. Yet some people eventually reach a point, whether it is in their teens or beyond, where they decide to disregard these dangers.
The physical effects of drugs are vicious. Since drugs are a poison to the body, you will immediately begin to see the negative side effects on your body. Someone abusing drugs will soon lack motivation; they will appear worn down and tired from the abuse. They may lose weight from a lack of eating or hunger as a side effect of the drugs.
Drug abuse also will change the way a person functions on a day to day basis. Depending on the severity of abuse, they could spend not just all of their time ingesting drugs, but all of their money may be spent on obtaining their habit. This is a downward spiral just waiting to happen.
Time after time drug abuse has proven to be a serious killer. It will wear down the human body to a point that it can no longer function properly. Addicts lack the mental stability to recognize the damage of their abuse, and far too often do not even care. The physical effects of drug abuse are often so evident and obvious, that it usually takes someone else stepping in to put an end to the abusive cycle.
