I know the effects but I want to know more.

    the danger isn't that simple.
    addiction in itself is extremely dangerous - because it changes fundamental priorities in your life, as you become dependant on the substance you'll start to use say food money or rent money as a means to buy more. that gets you starving and homeless. Then there's the various social damage it causes - all manner of relationships become strained, family, love interests, friends, they all suffer due to one's addiction either financially or emotionally.

    for the medical effects, check out the talk to frank website.
