Addiction Can Change Your Personality

10-29-2018 03:20 PM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: Pacific Bay Recovery

Addiction has been classified as a chronic brain disease. It can’t be cured but controlled with systematic, comprehensive treatment.

Left unchecked, over a period of time, drug and alcohol abuse can change critical brain activity. It can even fool the brain into prioritizing the abused substance over everything else. As the brain is consumed by drugs or alcohol, the individual's personality undergoes drastic changes.

Personality changes may include:

• Hiding or secrecy
• Laziness, lethargy and depression
• Not trusting anyone and/or paranoia
• Self-centeredness or selfishness
• Dishonesty or cheating
• Manipulating others or the situation to obtain and use drugs or alcohol
• Impulsiveness
• Aggression
• Anxiety
• Fears

Such erratic and negative behavior changes can harm an individual's overall well-being, resulting in –

Poor Relationships

Sudden mood swings, hiding things from a loved one and anger management issues can cause relationship issues.

Poor Performance

The individual may lose interest and the inability to focus. This may result in poor performance at school and/or at work. Individuals may fail academically or get fired at the workplace.

Financial and legal Issues

Aggression and impulsive behavior can cause the addict to act in a manner that causes harm to self and others, take unnecessary risks and even break laws, resulting in legal trouble. For example, the person may steal to get money required to obtain drugs or alcohol.
