The 1st stage of substance use is called "Experimental" or "Recreational" substance use. Oftentimes for many people that begin to experiment with drugs or alcohol, it goes no further and they conclude it is not for them. Sometimes the decision to never do it again is due to a bad experience or reaction to the drug; these are the lucky ones because unfortunately many others have an enjoyable experience motivating them to continue to use the drug or alcohol again and again. These are the ones that advance to the 2nd stage of substance use, "Continued Use". When a person gets to the Continued Use stage and they continue abusing the drug or alcohol they will rapidly progress to the 3rd stage of substance abuse which is called the "Tolerance" stage. At this stage the individual starts to develop immunity to regular doses of the drug they are using. At this point they have to ingest larger and larger amounts of the drug or substance in order to feel any euphoria from the substance. As the person continues to use more and more of the substance, they develop an even greater tolerance to the substance. At this point the person feels the need to use very large amounts of the drug just to experience any effects. It is at this point that the person has reached stage 4 of substance abuse, and what we know as full blown "Addiction". The person at this stage will feel that it is impossible to stop using the substance. In fact, at this stage they know that the substance is killing them and they desire to quit, but they discover they may not be able to quit on their own. Even when their behavior is exhausting their family and loved ones, they may not be able to quit on their own. They will commonly attempt many times to stop themselves and at times succeed for periods, only to start using again just when things seemed to be improving.
