Effects of ALCOHOL:

In LOW DOSES, alcohol produces:

  • a relaxing effect

  • reduces tension

  • lowers inhibitions

  • impairs concentration

  • slows reflexes

  • impairs reaction time

  • reduces coordination

Effects of ALCOHOL:

In MEDIUM DOSES, alcohol produces:

  • cause drowsiness

  • alter emotions

    In HIGH DOSES, alcohol produces:

  • vomiting

  • breathing difficulties

  • unconsciousness

  • coma

Effects of ALCOHOL:

Effects of CAFFEINE:

Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant. In moderate doses, caffeine can:

  • increase alertness

  • reduce fine motor coordination

  • cause insomnia

  • cause headaches, nervousness and dizziness

Effects of CAFFEINE:

  • Some studies show that caffeine causes physical dependence. One way to tell if someone "needs" that cup of coffee or bottle of Coke is to take it away from them and then see if they have any withdrawal symptoms. Typical withdrawal symptoms associated with caffeine are headache, fatigue and muscle pain. These symptoms can occur within 24 hours after the last dose of caffeine. One study has stated that the minimum consumption of caffeine for physical dependence is 4 cups of coffee per day. Other studies say that a few more cups of coffee are needed to develop dependence.

Effects of NICOTINE:

  • Tobacco contains nicotine. Nicotine is a drug. Therefore, when people smoke or chew tobacco, they are using a drug.

    Smoking can be stimulating or relaxing - it depends on a person's mood and dosage of nicotine.

    The rapid effects of nicotine include:

  • Increases in blood pressure and heart rate

  • Faster respiration

  • Constriction of arteries

  • Stimulation of the central nervous system.

Effects of NICOTINE:

Long Term Effects:

  • increases the chances of cancer and results in addiction and dependence.

    It is clear though, that nicotine is one of the most addicting substances known...just ask anyone who has tried to quit smoking.

    Common withdrawal symptoms in people who are trying to "kick the habit" of tobacco include:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue

Effects of NICOTINE:

How we get addicted to drugs:

  • The master brain chemical of addiction

  • Dopamine

    -transmits all of the pleasure signals

  • Dopamine overload (esp. feelings of euphoria and bliss)

  • Craving behavior response can motivate substance abuse

  • When drug addict attempts to stop using the drugs will demand more of the drug to produce metabolites

  • Drug addict is caught in a trap

  • Appears inescapable unless an effective drug addiction treatment handles the condition.
