These include finding it difficult to control the need to use the drug and feeling the use of the drug to be more important than more normal things such as family or work. When the person does not use the drug for an amount of time, they may suffer from withdrawal. When a person is addicted, they are usually addicted to a class of drug. A person who may easily become addicted to drugs is said to have an addictive personality. Drug addiction is often linked with other mental disorders.
