The 1st stage of substance use is called "Experimental" or "Recreational" substance use. Oftentimes for many people that start to experiment with drugs or alcohol, it goes no further and they conclude it is not for them. Sometimes rejection to future drug use is due to a bad reaction or experience to the drug; these are the lucky ones because unfortunately many others end up having a pleasant experience motivating them to continue to experiment with the substance. These individuals will advance to the 2nd stage of substance use, "Continued Use". When a person reaches the Continued Use stage and they continue using the drug or substance they will eventually progress to the 3rd stage of substance abuse which is called the "Tolerance" stage. At the Tolerance stage of substance abuse the person begins to become immune to lower doses of the substance they are using. At this point they must use more and more of the drug for them to feel the effect of the substance. As the person keeps using larger and larger amounts of the substance, they develop an even greater tolerance to the drug. Now the individual must ingest massive doses of the drug just to feel the effects. It is at this point where the individual has acquired stage 4 of substance use, and what is recognized as full blown "Addiction". The individual at this point will consider that it is impossible to quit using the substance. Actually, at this point they usually know that the drug is destroying them and they want to stop, but they may not be able to stop by themselves without help. Even when their actions and behaviors are destroying their family and loved ones, they may not be able to stop using by their own will. They will try everything possible to stop themselves and at times succeed for periods, only to relapse just when things seemed to be getting better.
