About me

Drug: It is an additive substance which changes the working style of the body (or) modifies a chemical process in the body so as to

diagnose, prevent, treat& cure diseases


Addiction: It is a progressive, chronic intoxication (sometimes even fatal) caused due to continuous Physical (or) Physiological (or)     

        Psychological dependence on a drug (or) a practice (like Gambling & Sexual promiscuity). Such habituated persons are beyond voluntary

        control & have a great difficulty in leaving these habits (i.e De-addiction; where the body ceases to function normally & faces a high risk

        of severe withdrawal symptoms). They are called as Addicts. Active Addicts end up harming themselves &/or their loved ones in spite of a

        strong desire to stop (Abstinence) their behaviour. Sometimes even after long period of Abstinence also; Addiction may again relapse back.
