Addiction.- A condition in which a certain individual's body becomes dependent to a particular substance, thing or activity.

We all know that drugs and tobacco can become addictive almost instantly, but we also know that they BOTH can affect our bodies and our lifes immediately .

Tobacco, why is it so bad?

Tobbaco.- A plant whose leaves are made to make cigarretes and chewing tobacco.

Well, for one, smoking can make you lose your voice and chewing tobacco can cause leukoplakia, which is a disease in which leathery-white patches to grow on the gums, but there is probably many more consequences to smoking than chewing tobacco that are MUCH more serious and/or dangerous.

Drugs, but ... they do it... why can't I?

Drugs.- Any kind of substance that affects the way your body and/or mind works after being ingested, injected or somehow put into the blood stream.
Drugs are most common among teenagers and young adults. But is there really anything 'cool' about slowly killing yourself with each pill you take, each liquid you inject, every poison you inhale or anything you smoke? Would you be able to live knowing that the next pill you take might also be the one that leads you to your death? I don't think you would want to even think about that.
