Signs That I'm an Addict
It's not always easy to tell if you're a drug addict. Most people believe that they're abusing drugs, and they know this is a problem. However, they don't feel addicted to anything. Perhaps this is where you are right now. It's even possible that even after taking this quiz, you're still not sure.
If that's the case for you, it might help you to take a look at some of the more common signs of addiction. You could be addicted to drugs if you:
- Don't use your medication the way that they were prescribed for you.
- Take large doses of your prescription meds regularly.
- Use medications that aren't prescribed for you.
- Alter the way that you take your medicine, such as by crushing the pills.
- Have had to use larger amounts of drugs over time because you could no longer feel the effects.
- When the drug wears off, you start to experience withdrawal.
- Have tried to stop using in the past, but couldn't.
- Think about using drugs almost constantly.
- Are unable to adhere to the drug use limits you set for yourself.
- Have had a hard time taking care of your daily responsibilities.
Do any of these sound familiar to you? If they do, you are most likely an addict. This is even more probable if you also scored high on the drug addiction quiz.
