From The Vault

Addiction to a substance, or activity, means your body (or your mind) is in need of a daily dose to avoid withdrawal symptoms.



  • You can get addicted when you use too many drugs. As an addict, you suffer withdrawal symptoms only when you run out of supplies. Many substances in the Fallout games are addictive. Each chem has a chance of addiction. One of the most addictive drugs is Jet.
  • For Fallout 1 & 2, withdrawal effects occur after becoming addicted and going for some amount of time without using that chem. For non-jet addictions, addiction lasts 7 days from the onset of the withdrawal effects (nine days of non-use), while jet addiction lasts forever without the Jet Antidote .

  • An easy way to avoid addiction is to save before consuming said substance. If you become addicted, simply load from the earlier save.
  • Items not listed in this table are not addictive in Fallout 3; This includes Rad-X, RadAway, and some other substances.
  • Additionally, two properties associated with addiction are present; duration and magnitude. It is unknown at this time what these two values represent, though they probably amplify the chances of addiction somehow, as not all addictive substances have these two properties.
