Understanding an addiction simply and simply as that situation or element that cannot be detached due to the superlative gratification that leads us to adhere to that element; it is an exaggerated and pathological attachment, often irreversible, that entails sequels for life and that has many origins either biochemical or mental. Normally when we use the word addiction we refer to the use of “legal” substances, such as alcohol or tobacco, and illegal substances, such as cocaine, marijuana, amphetamines, solvents, etc., which have already become a problem of both health and public safety, for the clandestine sale of these substances. Afterwards, new elements are put on the table for this great family, since we will mention gambling addiction or addiction to gambling, addiction to sex, money, In Mexico, as we have said, unsuspected levels in addictions are already reached, with alcohol as the first example.

In the following installments we will talk about the effects of each of the drugs, legal or illegal, so that they are known by you, dear readers and know how to avoid it, since some of your relatives or acquaintances may be submerged in these problems and many Sometimes when we realize it has been too late, yes, the “too late” is a recurring phrase in this type of suffering.
