Addiction Effects

Using different drugs will give you different levels of addiction. The addiction effects differ from the regular effects of being on the drugs as these will be in-effect whether you are on a drug or not.

A set of five icons will appear on your Sidebar signifying what level of addiction you are suffering. The heavier your addiction, the redder the brain icon will appear.

If you use too many drugs you may start experiencing negative effects such as:

  • Your effectiveness within a company may drop (this does not affect Directors)

starts occuring once the addiction icon appears

  • You may be kicked out of your Education class

Happens at about 6-7%

  • You may lose access to the drug free Gym you train in if using large amounts of Xanax or Ecstasy

above ~100 of these two combined, so 50 each to allow you to get the two associated merits

  • You may only be allowed to train in other gyms while under the effects of drugs
  • Your Fighting Stats may be dramatically reduced
  • Your effectiveness in Organised Crimes may be dramatically reduced

It is possible to remove these long-term effects by:

  • Going to Rehab in Switzerland
  • Waiting for the addiction to wear off naturally
  • Spending job points on specials: "R and R" in Cruise Line Agency or "Herbal Cleansing" in Flower Shop (both are available in 5* companies)
  • Using Book : Milk Yourself Sober which removes a substantial amount of drug addiction upon completion.
  • Using Book : Hot Turkey to gain no drug addiction 31 days.

More testing needs to be done before accurate figures can be set on how many of each drug will force an Education kick.
