1. The spiral of Addiction starts for someone who is escaping pain. Whether that is physical or emotional. Like we take aspirin for a headache they take a much more dangerous path, Cocaine, crack heroin etc. for the pain in their head. Aspirin is to us, as Drugs and Alcohol is to them. They find relief momentarily for the pain... but it works! They may start recreationally but find that "It works" for their emotional or physical pain. That is the beginning of the spiral. They may start with Marijuana or Alcohol and then when that doesn't work anymore you up the ante to pills or more.....
