someone that their own family may not even recognise. Breaking the cycle of addiction can be very difficult, but what can be even more difficult is recognising an addict as an addict. Many people with an addiction are able – at the beginning – to lead relatively normal lives. They can become offended if it is suggested that they have a problem with a particular substance. That is why we have put together the top three signs of an addict, so that if you are starting to become concerned about a friend, family member, or even yourself, you know what you should be looking out for:
If a person is unable to go to work, unwilling to pay bills, or simply refuses to spend time with their children, then they are neglecting their responsibilities, and that is a problem. If they are really starting to upset the people around them, or lose their job, then it is serious.
Life revolves around the addiction.
This is a very common sign of addiction. Addicts will organise their day around when they can get the thing they are addicted to, and nothing is more important than getting their fix.
Problems with the law.
This is often one of the signs that people ignore because they believe it to just be a legal matter – but if a person is arrested for driving under the influence, being intoxicated, or possession with intent to supply, that should be a huge warning sign.
If one, two or even all three of these signs are ringing bells for you, it is time to take action. The person in question needs help, and you will be infinitely important to them . . . or if you are the person that you think could be an addict, it is time to ask for help.
