Addiction can strike anyone regardless of gender or class. When addiction takes hold of you, it affects both your brain and body while negatively impacting your professional life and relationships. People can become addicted to various substances, including alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription medications. It's not uncommon for addiction to cause significant chemical changes within the brain, making it more difficult for you to quit.

 Risk Factors for Addiction 

While addiction can strike anyone, a few risk factors can increase the chances of developing an addiction. These risk factors include:

  • A family history of addiction
  • Preexisting mental illness
  • Experimentation with substances at a young age
  • Poor parental modeling and lack of involvement
  • Using highly addictive substances

In addition, some studies suggest that men are more likely to become addicted to illicit substances. However, the progression of addiction disorders tends to evolve more quickly in women.
