All drugs are not addictive but yes there are a few that can make us highly dependent on them. Addiction, as per medical terms, is a psychological or physical need for something to the extent that becomes harmful to the person who is addicted.

It is a condition where a person is not able to control his/her use of intake of a medicine or a drug.

We tend to be addicted to drugs to cope up with everyday life. People often use certain drugs daily because they consider them important over other activities or relations.

 For example, people who are workaholic and have work stress are often seen suffering restless sleeps. This is not just with working people, those who have stressful personal life also fall into this category.

Sleep is considered to be the most important activity of the day and the lack of it can lead to many mental disorders. People eat medicines to fall asleep and also to get relieved from stress but besides this, they get addicted to such drugs.

It has been seen that people generally get addicted to medicines that provide pain relief or can provide rest to our mind. 

We can call it a brain condition when we rely upon external sources to calm us down. Let’s try to know some of these conditions where we fall addicted to drugs.
