The health risks linked with drug addiction range from ordinary headache to death.  All your organs are affected once you get dragged into it.  Your immunity weakens and absorption of nutrients is reduced, making you susceptible to diseases.  Your brain will no longer function normally and eventually you will have difficulty to focus, learn and recall.

Drug addiction is hazardous to your emotional health.

Drug addiction does not only affect you physically but also emotionally.  It can cause stress, anxiety and depression.  It also impairs your perception of everything.  When you become emotionally troubled, your physical state is also compromised.
