Drug Addiction and the Foot-in-the-Door Affect?

Question by jeg2315: Drug addiction and the foot-in-the-door affect?
Does the foot-in-the-door affect have an impact on drug addiction? I am thinking along the lines of self-persuasion in terms of addiction, such as ‘one can’t hurt’, or ‘I’ll try it once’. Then, it turns into an addiction where you can’t stop. Does this make sense, or am I way off with foot-in-the-door concepts? Thanks.
