Stuck is a noun, meaning “stuck in a fixed position.” It’s used to describe things that can’t be moved, from a jar lid stuck to a car stuck in traffic. Other synonyms for stuck include jammed, entangled, and beached. The verb “stick” comes from the Old English root “stician,” which means “to pierce or fasten.”
In the case of drug abuse, when a drug reaches its climax, the drug user is “locked in” until the drug comes down. This can be a life-threatening situation, so it is important to get treatment as soon as possible. To get help quickly, call the emergency room. It’s important to remember that there are many reasons you can become stuck, including a weakened nerve or muscle.
