When you are a drug addict, especially when it involves hard drugs such as methamphetamine and heroin, it is almost impossible to rescue yourself from this pit. In fact, unless you have family members or friends who forcibly get you committed to a rehabilitation clinic, it actually might be impossible for you to recover. Drug addiction is extremely harmful, which is why businesses try to eradicate it using workplace drug testing. While drug and alcohol testing is effective in getting rid of unwanted addicted employees, the reality for the addicted world as whole is pretty bleak.
First thing to go is nutrition. Remember when you were a kid and you ate a gallon of ice cream and felt sick to your stomach afterward? Well, believe it or not, you were not sick because ice cream is so sweet. You were sick because your body must pull nutrition out of your food in order to have strength to digest it, and at some point the low nutrition of the ice cream combined with the large amount you were eating led to intestinal protest. When employers use workplace drug testing, they may start to notice that some of their employees look weak and sickly.
Second thing to go is happiness. Now that your body is in constant physical pain, not to mention hungry as for some real food, drugs take down the feel good chemicals which are generated in your brain. Serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine are the next to go out the door. Now you are in physical pain, starving, and you are reduced to the emotional maturity of a two-year-old, all while having very real, very adult responsibilities.
Third thing to go is support from friends and family. Now that you have burned your house and hacked away at your frame, you will start digging up your own foundation. Your community, such as your family, coworkers, and closest friends will begin to draw away from the disease that is spreading within your mind and body. You see, they all are happy…and healthy…and naturally avoid things like disease.
The enormous burden of leaving a drug addicted lifestyle would be too heavy for a normal, healthy person to undertake. However, crackheads and alcoholics do not have even that luxury.
