  • You feel strange when the drug wears off. You may be shaky, depressed, sick to your stomach, sweat, or get headaches. You may also be tired or not hungry. In severe cases, you could even be confused, have seizures, or run a fever.

  • You can't stop yourself from using the drug. You are still using it even though it's making bad things happen in your life, like trouble with friends, family, work, or the law.

  • You spend a lot of your time thinking about the drug: how to get more, when you'll take it, how good you feel, or how bad you feel afterward.

  • You have a hard time giving yourself limits. You might say you'll only use "so much" but then can't stop and end up using twice that amount. Or you use it more often than you meant to.

  • You've begun having trouble doing normal daily things, like cooking or working.

  • You drive or do other dangerous things (like use heavy machines) when you are on the drug.

  • You might be addicted if you keep taking a drug after it's no longer needed for a health issue.

  • You borrow or steal money from people to pay for drugs.

  • You hide the drug use or the effect it is having on you from others.

  • You're having trouble getting along with co-workers, teachers, friends, or family members. They complain more about how you act or how you've changed.

  • You sleep too much or too little, compared with how you used to. Or you eat a lot more or a lot less than before.

  • You look different. You may have bloodshot eyes, shakes or tremors, bad breath, frequent bloody noses, or you may have gained or lost weight.

  • You've lost interest in things you once liked to do.

  • You have a new set of friends you do drugs with and go to different places to use the drugs.

  • You go to more than one doctor to get prescriptions for the same drug or problem.

  • You look in other people's medicine cabinets for drugs to take.

  • You take prescribed medications with alcohol or other drugs.
