Addiction to drugs and alcohol is more dangerous and destructive than any other normal disease which usually cause unmanageability in their lives and family. For example when a boy with the first flush of radiant vision for adventure, curiosity and thrill use drugs with the motive to taste it ,he gets a nice feeling and he uses it quite often, slowly progresses the consumption, intensity , compulsion and crisis. Because of addiction, many problems start arising like stealing things for money, telling lies, dishonesty with everyone and in every areas of life. He is looses his career and other co-curricular activities, but all these things go away from life. Gradually addicts get isolated, becomes unsocial and gets involved in anti-social activities simply to score substance of his intoxication or due to loosing sanity due to toxication. Because of active addiction he looses trust, faith and prestige, he gets distinctly separated and isolated from the entire society and at a point of time he starts hating himself. He gets mentally sick and the pain becomes so unbearable that he is prone to suicides. Otherwise with the passing years and age and time, his misdeeds land him to jail, mental assylum or even premature death.
