Keywords: , ,

  1. It depends what sort of drugs!! If you’re on drugs for a psychological condition, it can change the chemicals in your brain called neurotransmitters, to make people better.

    Things like ‘recreational drugs’ can act on your reward system in your brain, making you feel ‘rewarded’ when you take them. If you take these drugs for a prolonged period it can cause brain damage, memory loss, psychosis…a whole range of different things really. If you take drugs which affect your brain, it’s pretty logical that taking them too much will cause a permanent change.
