About: Addiction

“JUNKIE”

Did you know that the slang term for heroin addicts emerged in early 1900s America because in East Coast cities a substantial population of recreational users were supporting their habits by collecting and selling scrap metal – hence the name “junkie”.

Addiction is a strong, uncontrollable need to carry out a particular activity.
It becomes the most important thing in your life and leads to problems at home, work and socially.

If you carry on engaging in the behaviour, your brain and body become tolerant and you need more to get the same effect. What started out as something you can control can develop into an uncontrollable need or addiction. It’s easily done – we live in an age of excess and easy access. The recovery requires control and discipline with an immovable commitment to your long-term well-being.
