Most people who try drugs don’t become addicted. But if you’re using a particular drug every week or every day, or your use is increasing, there’s a chance that you’re hooked without fully realising it. An early sign of addiction is experiencing unusual urges to use the drug. The sooner you notice there is something "not right" about these urges, the easier it will be to change your use before things get out of hand.
Relationships are particularly affected if drugs and the things you do on drugs become more and more of a priority in life. It’s hard for others to stay in a relationship with someone who is using a lot. They might find you emotionally distant, or see you as out of control.
