If I see a man is lying on the street and keeps yawning, can I say "I think he is 'in' or 'under' the drug addiction" to my friend next to me? Which one is correct? Thank you.

    Neither "I think he is in the drug addiction" nor "I think he is under the drug addiction" is grammatically correct. (Just out of curiosity, is someone who "keeps yawning" more likely to be a drug addict than anyone else you see lying on the street?)

    I think lying on the street plus keep yawning plus in low spirits make me associate with a drug addict. Back to business, can you give me a phrase "I think he is ...drug addiction?
