Addiction Type

Heroin Addiction

heroinaddiction

Heroin (diacetylmorphine chemical composition – С21Н23NO5) is a synthetic derivative of morphine. It belongs to opioids, inducing a state of euphoria and acting as an analgesic (pain neutraliser). Its effect is two to four times more powerful than morphine, it is faster, cheaper and easier to use. Speed and severity of its actions come from excellent solubility in fats, allowing for for a faster penetration in the blood-brain (barrier). Heroin, morphine, codeine, and many other similar substances attach to opioid receptors in the body, one of which is endorphins, responsible for regulation of pain, nausea, respiration , hormonal activity, feelings, moods, happiness and relaxation. Heroin is metabolized to morphine in brain, before binding to opiate receptors.

Heroin is consumed by sniffing, when used as powder. It is then rapidly absorbed when taken in by lines. Another way of consuming this substance is through breathing vapour heated, and an aluminum foil. In this case, heroin reaches brain in only 7 seconds, while the strongest euphoric effect could be felt after 5-7 minutes. The third way of consuming heroin is by injecting it (intravenous), whereby the most euphoric effect occurs for 10-20 seconds. Dosage of heroin, as well as its intensity and duration of action depends on the mode of consumption. An intravenous dose is usually 5-10 mg, while a dose of 15-25 mg is usual for inhalation. Length of functioning lasts for 3-5 h.

Effects of heroin usage include great euphoria, with simultaneous relaxation and sense of security, neutralizing pain and tension relief from anger, frustration and aggression but also new feelings of love, safety, satisfaction and tranquillity. Sometimes, especially when taking this drug for the first time there may be vomiting and nausea as a side effect. Heroin is a depressant of the central nervous system, slows heart rate, breathing, lowers blood pressure, causes expansion of blood vessels and reduces activity of the intestine. Due to these reactions of people addicted to heroin drowsiness, nausea, body (weight loss), lack of interest and loss of emotions for people and the environment. Overdose in itself can lead to a complete stoppage of heart, especially in combination with consumption of alcohol, tranquilizers, and substances with similar effect, when multiple slows breathing and heart rate, and due to lack of oxygen usually leads to unconsciousness and death.

In addition to this, depending on a cause of death, consequences of consumption are numerous. A huge risk of impurities, such as poisoning (strychnine), infections originating from fibres of the filter through which the heroin dilution is drawn into the syringe, which passes through the needle and is usually made of filter cigarettes and often unclean fingers. There is also a random violation of nerves, needle punctures which leads to numbness that lasts for months. They can also clog the capillaries, if the particles are not completely soluble in water, which causes cell death of the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, brain, etc. Less frequent consequences of addiction are scars, collapsed veins, bacterial infections of the bloodstream, pneumonia. However, even these smaller effects lead to bigger and more serious problems.

Methadone Addiction

methadoneaddiction

Methadone, or how people like to call it , Dolophine, among other names, is a fully synthetic opioid usually used to treat pain and, in addiction medicine, as maintenance therapy or to help with detoxification. Detoxification using methadone can either be done relatively rapidly in less than a month or gradually over as long as six months depending on the patient and situation. While a single dose has a rapid effect, maximum effect can take five days of use. The effects last for about six hours after a single dose and a day and a half after long-term use with a person with normal liver enzyme functioning. Methadone can be taken orally or rarely by injection into a muscle or vein. Side effects are similar to those of other opioids. These commonly include dizziness, sleepiness, vomiting, and sweating. Serious risks may include a decreased effort to breathe due to a massive dose, or opioid abuse syndrome from abuse of methadone. Heart arrhythmia may also occur including prolonged QT. Number of deaths from methadone poisoning is very high. Risks are greater with higher doses. Methadone is made of y chemical synthesis and acts?? on opioid receptors. As with other opioid medications, tolerance and dependence usually develop with repeated doses. There is some clinical evidence that tolerance to analgesia is less with methadone compared to other opioids; this may be due to its activity against NMDA receptor. Tolerance to different physiological effects of methadone varies; tolerance to analgesic properties may or may not develop quickly, but tolerance to euphoria usually develops rapidly, whereas tolerance to constipation, sedation, and respiratory depression develops slowly (if ever).

Most people who have overdosed on methadone may show some of the following symptoms:

    Miosis (constricted pupils)

  • Hypoventilation (breathing that is too slow/shallow)
  • Drowsiness sleepiness, disorientation, sedation, unresponsiveness
  • Skin that is cool, clammy, and pale
  • Limp muscles, trouble staying awake, nausea
  • Unconsciousness and coma

Cocaine Addiction

cocaineaddiction

Cocaine is the main alkaloid obtained from the leaves of the plant called Coca (erythroxylon coca), although it could be found in other plants. Coca, growing in Peru and Bolivia, in South America, was first used to relieve pain, increase stamina and neutralise hunger and depression. It can be found in Africa, Indonesia and Hawaii as well . Initially y, people were chewing it. Indians have chewed coca leaves with the ashes, as their famous ritual custom. Since the ash is alkaline, it came to hydrolysis of cocaine to ecgonine, which has no euphoric effects, but similar to caffeine. Today, cocaine is usually sniffed or taken intravenously or by injection and smoking. Cocaine is a fine, white crystalline powder with a bitter taste that dissolves in water.

Cocaine stimulates the nervous system acts as anaesthetic because it paralyses nerve endings, chewing coca leaf but feeling tingling tongue. It also leads to changes in behaviour and reactions, raising energy, increases alertness and physical capabilities and instils a sense of confidence. Cocaine is the most natural psycho-stimulant that causes hallucinations but also increases the concentration of (intellectual skills). Disadvantages of this drug include sleeping problems, runny nose, sexual blockages, red allergic skin reactions, dilated pupils, erratically behaviour, fear, paranoia, and as a result, aggressiveness. It also accelerates heartbeat and breathing, increased blood pressure and body temperature.

When sniffing it takes about three minutes for cocaine to be absorbed through the lining of capillaries and blood stream, and in the brain. By smoking, cocaine vapour is absorbed into the blood stream in lungs, thereby speeding up the operation. This drug works for 20-40 minutes. After taking, thinking becomes easier and faster, activates the voice centre, feels confident. For about 10 minutes the hypothalamus responds to stimuli, eases slowly, body temperature increases and this becomes a danger. Cerebellum is affected as well as centres for the ability to move and balance.

‘Crack’ is a street name for the free base cocaine which is obtained by work-up of cocaine hydrochloride to give compound for smoking. Coke is mixed with the ammonia, sodium bicarbonate and water and then heated to a vapour hydrochloride. The term “crack” has emerged due to the crackling sound of smoking. By this technique of using crack cocaine, euphoria is generated in 10 seconds.

* Coca leaves are first wetted and then added a base of limestone when pounding a wooden Tucci. 125g of cocaine comes out of 1 kg of coca. Packages that are sold are often 1 g of powder, and most of it is between 30-60% pure cocaine. Dealers tend to add starch, talc, sugar, procaine or stimulants such as amphetamines and the like.

Symptoms

Mdpv Addiction

mdpvaddiction

MDPV also known as methylenedioxypyrovalerone is a stimulant of the cathinone class. It acts as a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor. hydrochloride salt exists as a very fine, hygroscopic, crystalline powder that tends to clump to itself, resembling something like powdered sugar. Its colour can range from pure white to a yellowish-tan and has a light odour that becomes stronger as it colours. Solutions /Impurities are likely to consist of either pyrrolidine or alpha-dibrominated alkylphenones from either excess pyrrolidine or incomplete amination, respectively, during synthesis. These impurities likely account for its discoloration and fishy (pyrrolidine) or bromine-like odour, which worsens upon exposure to air, moisture, or bases. Products labelled as bath salts containing MDPV were previously sold as recreational drugs in gas stations and convenience stores in the United States, similar to the marketing for Spice and K2 as incense. Methylenedioxypyrovalerone has no record of FDA approved medical use. MDPV acts as a stimulant and has been reported to produce effects similar to those of cocaine, methylphenidate, and amphetamines. The primary psychological effects last for roughly 3 to 4 hours, with after effects such as tachycardia, hypertension, and mild stimulation lasting from 6 to 8 hours. High doses have been observed to cause intense, prolonged panic attacks in stimulant-intolerant users, and there are anecdotal reports of psychosis from sleep withdrawal and addiction at higher doses or more frequent dosing intervals. It has also been repeatedly noted for inducing strong cravings to re-administer. Reported modalities of intake include oral consumption, insufflation, smoking, rectal and intravenous use. It is supposedly active at 3–5 mg, with typical doses ranging between 5–20 mg. Physicians often treat MDPV overdose cases with anxiolytics, such as benzodiazepines, to lessen the drug-induced activity in the brain and body. In some cases, general anaesthesia was used because sedatives were ineffective. Emergency treatment for severe hypertension, tachycardia, agitation, or seizures consists of large doses of lorazepam in 2–4 mg increments every 10–15 minutes intravenously or intramuscularly. If this is not effective, haloperidol is an alternative treatment. It has been found that the use of any beta blockers to treat hypertension in these patients can cause an unopposed peripheral alpha-adrenergic effect with a dangerous paradoxical rise in blood pressure.

Alcohol Addiction

alcoholaddiction

Alcoholism appears as the old problem of mankind and one of the most difficult problems of modern medicine. It is one of, if not the most widespread addiction. This is the result of a mass of people thinking that alcohol is not very harmful and dangerous (obtained naturally from fruits and vegetables that we all consume and is known well), and addicts are often only considered seriously ill, although they are all addicts who cannot refrain from excessive use. Like all harmful substances, when consumed excessively , alcohol effects physical and mental health. The World Health Organization has defined alcoholism as follows: : “Alcoholism is a disease, and is an alcoholic patient who due to excessive and prolonged use of alcoholic beverages suffers psychological and physical addiction, health problems, family and social disorders.” After harmful consequences for health, alcoholism immediately after cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Alcohol harms the body and is a major threat to heart, stomach or other parts of the body. Most people come very early in contact with alcoholic beverages,. After “tasting” alcohol, there is a phase of testing and searching habits, when the taste is pleasant and that could be consumed more often. After this, an alcoholic beverage has already fitted in lifestyles and is regularly consumed willingly, although there are no major consequences and a person can function without problems. The next stage is consuming anytime and anywhere, in the morning,at lunch, at work, at home, when it disrupts the normal functioning of the person, and not so visibly, changes personality, understanding, and responding. Social relations suffer most. . The final stage is when a person is obsessed with alcohol and cannot live without it. Alcohol intoxication is acute alcohol poisoning that occurs after use of larger amounts of alcohol. Poisoning can occur and long-term alcoholics, as well as alcoholic coma, interruption of continuity of consciousness. This is one of reactions that can be mellow when you need medical detoxification and hospitalization and can be fatal if the poison bigger and stronger. Apart from poisoning and weakening the physical organs and the whole body, the effects of this addiction are emotional disorders (fear, mental instability, anxiety, tension, etc., Which are a cause of consuming in the beginning but as the continuation of these emotions in depending only amplified by the addict in a vicious circle), family problems (disorders of family relations), the professional problems (reduced ability to adequately function at work, in qualitative and quantitative terms) and general social disorders that manifest themselves in the form of a general isolation and neglect of basic social obligations. There is also an alcoholic epilepsy characterized by spasms of part or all of the body at a loss or impaired consciousness. It looks like a classic epileptic attack. May lead to true epilepsy, due to brain damage.

Addicted to alcohol, alcoholic, has less and less opportunity and the strength of mind to the problems of life “coming out” sober.

Cigarette Addiction

cigaretteaddiction

Dependence on cigarettes usually implies dependence puff, nicotine, tobacco addiction.

A habit is quickly gaining numerous harmful adverse effects, cough, financial cost, quick sober addicts aware of them, but then usually already acquired habits and hard treated addiction. Cigarette smoking is so harmful, greeting and creates such a dependence that is not a law on the obligation of manufacturers of tobacco products for smoking, on the packaging of their products printed big earthquake and a direct warning about the consequences, do not affect the decision of smokers to smoke. In addition to the aforementioned ways of smoking, smokers are divided into two more groups. Active, those who smoke and passive, those who breathe the smoke in the presence of smokers. Today, given the number of smokers, active and passive have almost the same consequences and effects and thus harm from tobacco smoke is much higher than in any other dependency. I smoke affects the smoker and the environment. This is precisely the reason why laws were enacted that smoking is prohibited in public places, in order to reduce the number of passive smokers, who are being “poisoned” against their will. Also in some countries and the whole building are provided for smokers and non-smokers. But it is precisely this division, we often draw young people to smoke cigarettes in order to be accepted in society. To make as much as possible counteract tobacco use among young people, are prohibited from selling cigarettes to minors.

In addition to physical appearance (poor hair, yellow whites of the eyes, yellow tongue, teeth, bad breath, yellow fingers, lips, mustaches for men, dry skin, cracked nails) tobacco products affect the absolute whole body and menace numerous health hazards. From illness tongue, throat and lungs, to the skin and even infertility as well as numerous tumors and blockages of blood vessels and heart. Longtime smokers may have a crisis in the absence of cigarettes, the additional stress and fear and anxiety and the occurrence of psychosis in abstinence. Therefore, the first period in rehab is the hardest, but overcomes it easier with the support of the environment, sport and a new, healthy habit (run, walk, something that distracts from thinking about the crisis).

Nicotine from smoke only need a few seconds to reach the brain. With high doses of nicotine leads to the manifestation of intoxication: irritability, anxiety, high blood pressure, tachycardia, palpitations, excessive salivation, nausea, pallor, sweating, tremor, muscle fasciculation, depression and dysphoria, disturbance of concentration, insomnia, increased appetite, vegetative dysfunction system but are possible collapse and poisoning, which can even be symptoms and to respond to small amounts of smoke inhalation.

The tobacco industry uses the following, toxic materials in the production of cigarettes that further poison and damage the body:

  • Sulfur – in order to obtain an intense yellow color of tobacco
  • The preparations based on lead – for flavoring cigarettes
  • Antifreeze – to achieve a balance of moisture in cigarettes
  • Titanium dioxide – that the ash that was whiter
  • Asbestos fibers that the ash is not crowned
  • Radioactive polonium 210 in the process of tobacco breeding to increase yields.

Some scientific studies have shown that food addiction is being caused by excessive insulation of dopamine which alters the biochemical balance in the brain. Indeed, there are foods that affect reporting directly to the brain, creating a feeling of dependency. Because of this feeling, some people find it almost impossible to control their diet.. Although it seems less harmful, fast and harmful foods can affect the body like a drug. Symptoms are similar and even the brain reacts the same.
