There are many harmful things in the world, but the degree of their influence on the body varies from both physiological and psychological point of view. It is one thing to abuse cakes or fried potatoes with meat (also not too healthy), another to be in the grip of very harmful addictions – it is harder to drink alcohol, tobacco or drugs.

Resource Boredpanda has updated the selection of photographs that depict drug addicts “in the eyeballs” and with different lengths of substance use. Some of them are enthusiastic a year after giving up drugs, others fought off a dangerous habit many years ago. And apparently, do not regret it.

The transformation can be obvious and not very, however, in any case, behind the changes is something that prompted changes: from fear for one’s own life to the appearance of someone significant in it who could provide support.
