The 1st stage of substance use is called "Experimental" or "Recreational" substance use. For many people that begin to experiment with substances, it goes no further than that and they decide it's not for them. Sometimes rejection to future drug use is due to a bad experience or reaction to the drug or the event; these are the fortunate ones because unfortunately many other people end up having 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 a person progresses to the Continued Use stage and they continue using the drug over and over, they will eventually progress to the 3rd stage of substance abuse which is called the "Tolerance" stage. At this stage the individual starts to become immune to lower doses of the substance they are using. At this stage they must use larger and larger amounts of the drug in order to feel any effect of the substance. As the individual keeps using more and more of the substance, they develop more and more tolerance to the drug. Now the person has to use massive doses of the substance in order to feel the effects. It is at this point that the individual has acquired stage 4 of substance abuse, and what we know as "Addiction". The person at this stage will feel that it is practically impossible to quit using the drug. Actually, at this stage they usually know that the substance is slowly killing them and they desire to stop, but they may not be able to stop on their own. Even when their actions and behaviors are devastating their loved ones, they may not be able to stop 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.
