Being addicted to prohibited drugs or substances may be usually viewed as an individual struggle. The person responsible for using the substance may only think of his own and never think of his or her loved ones. The belief that it can initially alleviate their feelings of loneliness may have pushed them to use the substance. Or even peers can influence them in doing so. But one should always remember that people surrounding the victim are even more devastated once they know what is happening. Giving on to substance addiction certainly damages the family including your parents, children, or your spouse.
