The first stage of substance use is called "Recreational" or "Experimental" substance use. Oftentimes for many people that experiment with drugs or alcohol, it goes no further and they decide it is not for them. Sometimes rejection to future drug use is due to a bad experience or reaction to the drug; these are the fortunate ones because sadly many others end up having an enjoyable experience driving them to do it again and again. These individuals will advance to the 2nd stage of substance abuse, "Continued Use". When an individual gets to the Continued Use stage and they continue using the drug or alcohol again and again, they will rapidly advance to the 3rd stage of substance abuse known as "Tolerance". At this stage the person begins to develop immunity to regular doses of the drug they are using. At this stage they feel the need to consume more and more of the substance in order to feel the effect of the substance. As the individual continues to use larger and larger amounts of the substance, they continue to develop more and more tolerance to the drug. Now the person has to ingest massive doses of the substance in order to feel the effects. It is at this point where the individual has reached stage 4 of substance abuse, and what is known as full blown "Addiction". The individual at this stage will consider that it is impossible to quit using the substance. In fact, at this point they know that the drug is killing them and they want to quit, but they typically can't stop by themselves without help. Even when their actions and behaviors are exhausting their loved ones, they usually cannot stop on their own. They will try everything possible to stop themselves and at times briefly succeed for short periods, only to start using again just when things look like they are improving.
