The signs of addiction affect far more than just the addict, themselves. There are clear signs that the general population around them, the general population who think about them, feel the torment that is created by that addiction.
This undesirable situation springs by the abuser's unconscious manifestations of harmful behaviour to himself and his friends alike.
The situation goes downhill when the friendship starts to become turbulent and eventually degrades. This series is about the various people who are affected in the life of an addict.
Conformity to the group is expected from its members hence the pressure to participate in any of the circle's activities. The abusive use of drugs because of pressure leads to addictiveness that will eventually become harder for the recovery of both persons. This makes it one of the most problematic traits of addiction.
As addiction grabs hold of your life, it's conceivable that the gathering of individuals who you call your companions will start to change. This should be able to fix your sense of belongingness only that you find yourself belonging to people who seem to head to oblivion.
Being around with your new-found friends does more harm than good and will even make it harder for you to get well.
