Being dependent on any type of substance may feel at times like having the proverbial ball and chain tied around your ankle. There are very few, if any places a person can go without the dependency or its effects. The effects of substance over use or abuse can be devastating on both the individual, their close friends and family. Ultimately, abstinence would be the best prevention from becoming dependent on any addictive substance. If there is going to be any unfortunate use of an addictive substance, very moderate use would be suggested. For those that have crossed that line and have found themselves wanting or needing assistance in overcoming a dependency, professional assistance may be required. Just quitting a dependency is not a simple process. In many cases, if not all, a complete change in behavior is required.
