Do You Need Addiction Help in Fife?

If you are worried about your drinking or drug use, this will be a sign that you need to quit, or in the case of alcohol, drink within safe levels (21 units spread out over a week). If you are unable to maintain this over a long period of time, this is a sign that you need help in order to overcome this behaviour. The chances are that you are now physically and psychologically dependent on these substances, and the fact that you have developed this addiction means that you will never be able to use these substances safely again. Some of the signs that would indicate that you have an addiction problem would include:

  • · You feel unable to cope in life without alcohol or drugs.
  • · You have developed an increased tolerance for these substances. This means that you have to take more than you did before to achieve the same level of intoxication.
  • · You suffer withdrawal symptoms when you try to quit or reduce your intake. Some people wrongly believe that they have never experienced withdrawals, but this can be because they have mistaken them for hangover symptoms.
  • · The individual is failing to meet their family, work, or social obligations because of the substance abuse.
  • · The person has needed to take time off work because of their overindulgence.
  • · The individual experiences memory lapses (blackouts) when they are intoxicated. For example, the individual cannot remember how they got home the night before. One of the most worrying things about blackouts is that people can have them and not even realise – this is because these blackouts usually only become obvious when other people mention things that the individual is unable to remember.
  • · The person is regularly ill in the morning due to the excesses the night before.
  • · The individual has lost interest in activities that they used to enjoy. Now the individual only seems to be interested in things that involve alcohol or drugs.
  • · They are spending increasing amounts of time devoted to the substance abuse – this can include obtaining alcohol or drugs, using it, getting over the effects of the substance, and thinking about the substance.
  • · The individual feels uncomfortable when they do not have a secure supply of their drug of choice. For example, if the individual feels that they cannot afford to buy more alcohol or drugs they can begin to feel a bit desperate.
  • · The person is willing to behave unethically in order to get their hands on the substance.
  • · They become defensive when other people question their behaviour.
  • · The individual feels the need to hide the excesses of their addiction.

These are just some of the symptoms of addiction, and it is not necessary for the individual to have all of these symptoms (or even most of these symptoms) in order for them to be addicted.
