Here is what you need to know all about Molly addiction.
Molly is a derivative of methamphetamine which acts as both a psychedelic and stimulant. Molly is a manifested synthetic drug made in laboratories and in home kitchens. Molly is the pure form of MDMA and comes in a powdery crystallized form.
Because Molly is a recreational drug, addiction is more likely when you take MDMA for its effect. Addiction and physical dependence are two separate clinical conditions; dependence occurs when the body has adapted to the continued presence of MDMA in the system and presents withdrawal symptoms once you stop taking it. Prolonged Molly abuse can completely damage brain chemistry to the point that cognitive behavior is only normal with the presence of the drug inside the body. At this point, the body is physically addicted to Molly. But most Molly users are not this extreme.
On the other hand, addiction may be present because the added psychological element of seeking out Molly even though it is hurting your body or your life may be more likely. Addiction can also involve seeking out the drug to self medicate and cope with the lack of pleasure and stimulation in your life. Simply taking Molly over time can lead to an addiction and negative relationship with the drug.
Everyone is different and reacts to Molly in different ways. Overall, continued abuse and self-medication using MDMA regularly will lead to addiction. Also, if you or your family have a tendency toward dependency on alcohol or drugs, you may be at a higher risk compared to someone who isn’t. If you feel you may be addicted to Molly, look out for the signs and then seek professional help to support your decision to stay away from MDMA.
Signs of Addiction to Molly
Chemical dependence to MDMA and Molly addiction can be similar but are clinically different conditions. The following are typical signs of Molly addiction:

- Rationalizing your use of Molly in order to continue taking it without guilt
