Because of the progressive nature of addictions, substance use frequently begins to consume greater and greater amounts of time and energy. Whether it is drinking or drugging, preparing for the next round of using or recovering from the last round of using, the alcohol and/or drugs tend to consume the best that a person has to offer.
