So like over 12 million people in the world, you experiment with pills and/or heroin. But are you addicted? How do you know?
Before we get into the signs and symptoms that indicate you might be addicted, the reality is, many people who experiment with drugs eventually become addicted. Statistics show:
Approximately 54% of the people who use heroin become dependent/addicted to it. Approximately 14% of the people who use opiates / pain killers (such as Oxycodone (Oxies), Percocets, Fentanyl, Morphone, Dilaudid, Demerol, Darvon, Vicodin, etc.) become dependent/addicted to it.
While you may be thinking you’re an exception and may not become addicted, taking any drug without a prescription is dangerous and can lead to serious injury and/or death. But those who are addicted have an even greater chance of overdosing and/or dying. But how do you know you’re addicted or soon will be?
