Addiction

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a pathological or abnormal condition which arises due to frequent use of drugs, alcohol or other such addictive substances. The stages involved in addiction include progression of acute drug use, development of drug-seeking behavior, the vulnerability to relapse, and the decreased, slowed ability to respond to naturally-rewarding stimuli, and above all, decreased motivation for normal life activities.
Drug addiction can be easily regarded as a community disease, because it leads to failure in schools, crime, violence, child abuse, domestic violence, and loss of productivity. And this is why it is so important to root out this problem from our society.

How do people get addicted?

Many people use drugs or other addictive substances in order to escape physical and emotional discomfort. Some start drinking to numb feelings of depression, some smoke pot to deal with stress at home, school or work, and a few others rely on cocaine to boost their energy and confidence. And surprisingly, many get into it just for fun and adventure!
But while these substances might make you feel better in the short-term, they do not treat the underlying problem. Instead, they simply mask the symptoms. Be it low self-esteem, anxiety, loneliness, or an unhappy family life, these problems will be there even after you take the drug away. Furthermore, prolonged drug use eventually brings its own host of problems, including major disruptions to normal, daily functioning.
Unfortunately, the physical, psychological, and social consequences of drug abuse and addiction become worse than the original problem you were trying to cope with or avoid.

What Ayurveda says..

Ayurveda considers addiction under the topic of Madatya, which means "intoxication". Madatya is the state or symptoms that arise due to continuous use or a high dose of substances that are intoxicating.
According to Ayurveda, Madya (alcohol/drug) is the complete opposite of ojas (source of energy), which is a prerequisite for good health and wellness. Madya finishes ojas in the body, and when a person reaches that stage, he experiences the symptoms of Madatya.
According to modern medicine, there are four stages involved in the process of addiction - acute intoxication, withdrawal symptoms, drug dependence, and finally drug abuse. The state of Madatya is comparable to the third and fourth of these stages.

Doshas and Addiction

The intake of drugs leads to the aggravation of one of more doshas or Ayurvedic humors – Vata (Air), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Water). Depending on the dosha aggravation, the following symptoms are generally observed:

· Vata Aggravation - headache, difficulty in breathing, insomnia, vivid dreams, hallucinations, anxiety, constipation, shaking, erratic moods and thoughts
· Pitta Aggravation - burning in the stomach and digestive problems, excessive sweating and thirst, diarrhea, fever, giddiness, aggression and violence
· Kapha Aggravation - excessive sleep, lethargy, heaviness in the body, nausea, and vomiting
· Tridosha Aggravation - combination of the above symptoms

In addition to these specific symptoms, the common symptoms of Madatya mentioned in Ayurveda are restlessness, piercing pain in the heart, sweating, diarrhea, thirst, fever with chills, loss of appetite, abdominal discomfort, dizziness and disturbed sleep.
These symptoms are experienced with a variety of drugs like heroin, opium, cannabis, cocaine, alcohol, barbiturates, and nicotine. This indicates a close resemblance between Madatya, as mentioned in ancient Ayurvedic texts, and the effects of modern narcotics. Therefore, Ayurvedic line of treatment for Madatya can be an effective in treating a variety of drug addictions.
