Mixing Drugs and Alcohol
Drugs and alcohol are a dangerous combination because it intensifies or complicates the side effects of toxic chemicals.
Because alcohol is a depressant, mixing it with painkillers or opioids can result in very slow breathing that can lead to coma or death.
Mixing alcohol with a stimulant like coke, on the other hand, can lead to contradicting signals to the brain, which can result in confusion, vertigo, or nausea.
This causes some people to choke on their vomit and die by asphyxiation.
Despite these dangers, mixing alcohol and drugs is a common practice among addicts.
This has also been one of the leading causes of drug-related deaths.
Until a person goes to rehab, it is difficult for them to understand the severity and danger of one’s addiction.
Call Abbeycare at 01603 513 091 and get saved from certain danger.
Physical Symptoms of Addiction
Unless someone is a high-functioning addict, the physical symptoms of substance abuse are one of the most noticeable warning signs of addiction.
Higher tolerance to substance would require increased quantities or strengths of drugs or alcohol to achieve the previous desired effect.
Changes in physical appearance are more visible.
This includes red and glassy eyes that appear unfocused;
The pupils of eyes can either be too large or too little depending on the substance of choice;
Sudden loss of weight for losing the appetite to eat;
Negligence of hygiene and uncaring of filthiness or stench;
Dry mouth and rotten or cracked teeth because of the unconscious grinding of teeth;
Ugly skin characterised by skin ulcers, pus, cracked hands, and red spots, among others; and
Looking fatigued and weary because of sleep deprivation.
If these signs are observable in someone you know, call for professional help at 01603 513 091.
People suffering from substance abuse suppose that a sober lifestyle is boring and unexciting.
On the contrary, an addicted lifestyle is what is really boring and unexciting.
It will either leave a person down and out on the floor and provide feigned pleasures that are unreal.
In the long run, it will harm its victim and the people around him.
Sober fun gives people genuine excitement, joy, and delight.
Getting into sports for instance will give a person a genuine thrill of playing.
Going on outdoor adventures will give the true joy of experiencing the beauty of nature.
Playing with family and friends will allow one to feel the true happiness of interacting with loved ones.
Sober fun is genuine fun.
Experiencing sober fun and happiness is the foundation for lasting recovery.
Say yes to new adventures and sober fun, call Abbeycare now on 01603 513 091.
