Six More Points about Drink, Drugs & Cigarettes

A nice, cold beer or a glass of wine at the end of a long working week. Smoking a cigarette while you rev up for an awkward conversation. Taking MDMA a party when you want to go all out. Studies show that increasing numbers of people are turning to substances such as alcohol, drugs and cigarettes at some point in their lives. It might be because they like the way they feel, because they help them to concentrate, or because they help them to zone out and not think about anything else.

And what exactly do they do to our bodies and minds? How can you tell if you're overdoing it? And what will help if you decide you want to cut back or stop altogether?
