More often than not, drug, alcohol and other substance-related addictions start with experimental use of the substance in social situations. For some people, the substance use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of the substance to get their desired high, and soon he or she may need to use the substance to simply feel “good.”
