The dangerous effects of drugs Into the body of a person


When people take drugs they are usually trying to get the substance from outside their body to receptor cells inside their body. Mostly, in the case of mood altering drugs these receptors are in the brain, although with some drugs like anabolic steroids these receptor cells may be elsewhere in you body.

The different ways of getting substances into your body vary depending on the type of drug you are going to use and the form which it takes. For example some drugs like heroin are prepared in a way which lends itself to the drug being injected. Other drugs like cannabis or tobacco are difficult and dangerous to inject but easily smoked.

Risks and Benefits
Just as different drugs have different risks associated with using them, then different ways of taking drugs have different risks too. Here are some common ways of taking drugs and some risks associated with them. A drug is a substance that when put into the body can change the way the body works. A "soft" drug is less addictive and considered less harmful to the body and to society as a whole. A "hard" drug is harshly addictive and considered much more harmful to the body and society in general. Psychoactive drugs are drugs that change your feelings, your perceptions and/or your behavior. Psychoactive drugs bring about a chemical reaction in the brain causing feelings, thoughts and behavior to be affected. A legal drug is a drug that can be obtained either by prescription or over the counter and used in the prescribed and appropriate. An illegal drug is a drug that is not approved by law for use in this country.
