Addicts start using in their teens. It’s very rare that an adult starts using drugs only after becoming an adult. A lot of teens stop using when they are getting ready to hit college because they don’t want to get into trouble or have to be tested for a job and have a dirty urine, so they quit and they quit for good. The true addict, though…could care less and will do anything to find a way to continue using…even if it means the loss of a job, home, family and friends.
