I thought it would be interesting and helpful for people to see how drug and alcohol abuse can affect the brain and cause normal brain activity to become diminished.These sites were very helpful to me in my recovery over 2 1/2 years ago.It showed me that although drugs do stop brain activity,after we stop the brain can heal itself.i hope that these links are helpful to you as well.Number 4 is one of my favorites.You will have to copy and paste the link into your address bar.

I was shown 'scare you straight' pictures like this in grade school. Now it's actually scary.
