Heroin addicts may also exhibit sudden changes in their behavior by frequently lying, showing lack of self esteem, and exhibiting hostile behavior toward friends and family. Additionally they may start wearing long sleeved clothing in order to hide the marks left by syringes.
As Heroin addiction progresses, so does the dependency. Heroin addicts find that the effects of the drug are lesser than prior consumption as their body builds a tolerance to the drug. This results in increased intake which may lead to heroin withdrawal.
Severe cases of heroin addiction may exhibit signs such as weight loss, infections, loss of menstruation, runny nose, cuts and scabs due to skin picking.
