The sooner you obtain the support, guidance and treatment you need, the sooner you can overcome your addiction and live a healthier, happier and substance-free life.
Signs and Symptoms Associated with Drug and Alcohol Addictions
As an addiction arises and begins to take control of the way that an individual thinks and behaves, various signs and symptoms will be experienced. These signs and symptoms include short term symptoms that alleviate within 24-48 hours and long term symptoms that have lasting consequences.
If you have recently come to realise that you are struggling with an addiction, you will have likely felt a wealth of the short term signs and symptoms associated with drug and alcohol addictions. However, you may have believed that these were due to generally feeling unwell, especially if you have only just identified that an addiction is indeed present.
If you have been struggling with an addiction for a prolonged period, in addition to feeling the short term signs and symptoms that an addiction presents, you may have also begun to experience the long term signs and symptoms of an addiction. However, for various reasons, you may have deferred treatment or kept your struggles to yourself.
Irrespective of whether you have only recently established you are addicted to drugs or alcohol, or have been addicted for quite some time, the signs and symptoms you will experience will typically include the following;
– Persistent headaches
– Heightened anxiety
– Intense cravings
– Changes in your appearance such as weight loss and pale skin
– Extreme fatigue
– Mood swings
– Changes in appetite such as eating more or less
– Rapid heartbeat
– Loss of physical coordination
– Muscle aches and pain
You must seek support if you are experiencing any of the above signs and symptoms. Failure to do so will cause your addiction to escalate beyond your control.
Not only will this impair your physical and psychological health now, but it will leave you feeling the ramifications in the future too.
