Can you get addicted?

Tolerance can build up within a few weeks in regular users, so you might need to use more to achieve the same effects. This reverts back to normal within a few days of stopping. It may be possible to become psychologically dependent on volatile substances, meaning the users develop an increased desire to keep using despite any harms they experience, but the evidence on this is limited. Withdrawal symptoms have been reported in regular users. When they stop their use they experience anxiety, irritability and headaches.
