When one is addicted to any vice, one feels left out and completely vulnerable to the world. The addictions eat at a person and destroy their confidence making the people or addicts weak. It is a shame that in all parts of the world, this is a common problem. It should be noted that all forms of addictions are diseases that when given time heal and leave the body, can be arrested.
It is not that the people who are hooked on toxic substances, wanted to be like that in the first place, they are like that due to outer circumstances that they faced that were too hard for them to conquer. Such as death of a loved one, frustrations and even seeking a way out.
