Self medicating not only can be for all the wrong reasons, but it may have started innocently as a way to alleviate an unwanted condition such as sleeplessness, pain, anxiety, allergies, etc. Without proper professional guidance (and sometimes even with it), abuse can ensue creating an even bigger problem for the user.
