Withdrawal happens when the individual does not take the stuff they are addicted to. Some of the withdrawal symptoms are horrible and it is not something that is fun to go through. If someone you know is having withdrawal symptoms, then sitting there yelling at them, telling them they did it to themselves is definitely not the way to go.

When one has an addiction, they have a lot of secrets. They may even try to hide their problem from the people around them. Are you doing drugs without anyone knowing? Do you do them alone?

When you have shame, this shows that you have a problem. You know what you are doing, you recognize what you are doing, yet you cannot seem to stop and that is what you are shameful about.

Those are 7 signs you have an addiction problem. I have had some friends go through this and like I said, it’s hard to watch, but you should never point fingers at the person. It would be a good idea to be by their side through the whole thing and tell them you’re there for them. Drugs can take over someone’s body and it’s real sad when it is prescription drugs. People, every day, get hooked on painkillers. What about you? Do you have a problem or know someone who does?
