The 1st stage of substance use is called "Recreational" or "Experimental" substance use. For many people that begin to experiment with drugs or alcohol, it goes no further and they determine it is not for them. Sometimes the decision to never do it again is due to a bad experience or reaction to the drug or the event; these are the fortunate ones because unfortunately many others end up having a pleasant experience driving them to continue to experiment with the substance. These individuals will advance to the 2nd stage of substance abuse, "Continued Use". When a person reaches the Continued Use stage and they continue abusing the drug or substance again and again, they will eventually advance to the 3rd stage of substance use which is called the "Tolerance" stage. At this stage the person starts to become immune to lower doses of the substance they are using. At this stage they must consume more and more of the substance for them to feel the effect of the substance. As the person keeps using more and more of the substance, they continue to develop an even greater tolerance to the substance. Now the individual feels the need to consume very large amounts of the drug just to feel the effects. It is at this point where the individual has reached stage 4 of substance use, and what we know as full blown "Addiction". The individual at this point will discover that it is practically impossible to stop using the drug. Actually, at this point they know that the substance is destroying them and they desire to stop, but they discover they typically can't stop on their own. Even when their actions and behaviors are destroying their loved ones, they usually cannot stop on their own. They will commonly attempt many times to stop themselves and at times briefly quit for periods, only to relapse just when things seemed to be looking brighter.
