There are two types of dependence on drugs, when they are used regularly and continuously psychic or psychological dependence and physically dependent. Psychic or psychological dependence is a condition where addicts experience cravings or cravings for the use of drugs to function normally and to achieve peace of mind and physical dependence is a condition in which the drug addicts require drugs for the usual physiological processes and if drug use is stopped it will cause symptoms of attraction. Symptoms of attraction are certain signs in terms of the physical and behavioral characteristics of a drug addict being shown when not using drugs, within a certain time. Among the signs of dependence are stomachache, vomiting, diarrhea, trembling and so on. Resistance to drugs is said to increase when the usual dose of drugs is not satisfactory or provides relief from overcoming symptoms of attraction. Drug dosages have to be added to achieve the same level of satisfaction or relief. Endurance improvements do not necessarily apply to someone who is dependent on drugs. Someone relies on drugs when drug use becomes an integral part of everyday life. Drug use over other living needs such as food and beverages, increased resilience, symptoms of withdrawal when not using drugs, desperation or gian to use drugs, especially when trying to reduce or stop using drugs and cannot control the amount and frequency of use and there is an attraction or withdrawal tendency after stopping the use of drugs for some time.
