    it's hard.. but the best that I have done: remember one thing that each differentiates from each other; what do I mean?

    PCP--"CRAZY WILD"--have you seen a wild horses? (before they are tamed);
    Amphetamines--"paranoid"
    Alcohol--Serum GGT: sensitive indicator of alcohol use; emotional
    Opoids--constipation, sweat
    LSD--"you're beautiful, man...", visual hallucinations
    Marijuana--hunger and thirst (increased appetite and dry mouth)
    Caffiene and nicotine--can't sit still (restlessness)..

    hope that this helps...

    Alchol depresses cns every function is depressed so on withdrawl everything will be hyper,agitated restless behavior.

    Opioids same as morphine,body secretions increase,pin point pupil constipation,

    Pcp aggressive
    LCD colourful,visual halucinations halos,also flash backs

    Marijuana red eyes

    And what about withdrawl symptoms,any mnemonics ,easy to remember?
