You need it to function, you no longer take because you want, but rather you need.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Like somone mentioned on the show - "red flags" to notice when things are starting to become a health problem is when it starts to affect your everyday life… For example, you have a big weekend... then another one, and then you move into having a stimulant on Monday morning to help you to work....

If you are worries https://www.counsellingonline.org.au/ is the perfect place to start...

You can also get heaps of info right here on reach out and support from peers here in the forums.

 

When someone you care about is trapped in addiction, it affects you too. Check this info and for one-on-one, Family Drug Help provides support and information to family members and friends of someone with an addiction.

One of the warning signs is if it starts to affect everyday life - from how you interact with others, get about your routine or everyday tasks (like going down to the shops or making a phone call), and whether you get out of bed or not.
