The 1st stage of substance use is called "Recreational" or "Experimental" substance use. For many people that start to experiment with substances, it goes no further and they determine it is not for them. Sometimes rejection to future drug use is due to a bad experience or reaction to the substance; these are the blessed people because sadly many others have a pleasant experience motivating them to do it again and again. These are the ones that progress to the 2nd stage of substance abuse, "Continued Use". When an individual reaches the Continued Use stage and they continue using the drug again and again, they will quickly reach the 3rd stage of substance abuse known as "Tolerance". At this stage the person begins to develop immunity to the regular amounts of the substance they are using. At this point they feel the need to ingest larger and larger amounts of the drug for them to feel any effect of the substance. As the person continues to use larger and larger amounts of the drug, they continue to develop more and more tolerance to the substance. Now at this stage the individual feels the need to take very large amounts of the substance just to experience any effects. It is at this point that the individual has reached stage 4 of substance use, and what is recognized as full blown "Addiction". The person at this stage will feel that it is impossible to quit using the drug. Actually, at this point they know that the substance is destroying them and they want to quit, but they discover they may not be able to stop by themselves without help. Even when their actions and behaviors are devastating their family and loved ones, they may not be able to quit on their own. They will try everything possible to stop themselves and at times succeed for periods, only to start using again just when things appeared to be improving. If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol, get help before it's too late.
