Anxiety and stress are an everyday occurrence, and for many of us, they are a manageable part of our daily lives. They often involve low levels of fear, worry and unease. However, anxiety disorder is a recognised mental health condition and may occur when such feelings overwhelm or begin to define us.

There is a fine line between compulsivity and impulsivity. Impulsivity may cover a wide range of behaviours that are poorly thought out, inappropriate and or risky, that often result in unwanted outcomes. It is often, though not always, unplanned. Compulsivity refers to the desire to repeat the same behaviours.

If a person’s dependency upon alcohol is too severe, it may be physically dangerous if they were to suddenly stop drinking, with symptoms including nausea, vomiting, confusion, increased heart rate, hallucinations and anxiety. Alcohol withdrawal that is not medically supervised can be dangerous.

Examples of opiate abuse include taking the medication more frequently or in larger amounts than prescribed. Continued patterns of opiate abuse can lead to a spiralling addiction, which is difficult to overcome without the help of medical professionals.
