Addiction to illegal or prescription drugs can cause serious problems to your mental and physical health, leading to physical and psychological dependency.
If you find that you cannot stop yourself from regularly taking a drug, even when you know it is harmful, you have a clear symptom that you are dependent on it. If you have become physically addicted, you will suffer withdrawal symptoms including shaking, sweating, nausea and diarrhoea. If you've become psychologically dependent, withdrawal will make you feel irritable, depressed or tired.
