Since God knows when, the captivation on drugs has been long on. Evidences that pertain to the beginning of addiction is not available. But to point out the evolution of drugs on one side of the coin, it all started with the intention to cure a disease. That is why drugs were formulated then. On a sad note, addiction survived more than the drug’s use as a cure.
Many of people today are frenzied by this kind of mania. These days, it is alarming that drug addiction is considered a norm. Drug addiction is now a plague rotting people from all walks of life. What worst is that it does not choose where or what to impinge on. Regardless of social class, age, or gender, one is not spared from its consequences. Even personalities you idolize on movies and TV shows are not spared from the dangers of drug addiction. A person’s demographics do not entail shelter from drug addiction.
However, there is no such thing as volunteerism on the area of drug addiction. They just came to a point in their lives where they woke and felt each hand fettered. And that no matter how they tried to escape and break away, they just find themselves, trapped and helpless.
What made an individual be a slave of drug addiction to begin with? Well to state the obvious, addicts have their reasons why they were and are still engaged in this sick kind of dependence. Family and friends play a vital part. They could be part of the vicious cycle why this drug addicts are in this limbo, locked in. Family and circle of friends are an interrelated source. For an instance, if an individual always gets criticisms and absorbs family-related problems, a consequence would be that they would seek for a place where they can talk about their issues, and if not talk about it, at least find for a place where he or she will have a time to forget his/ her predicaments even for just a short period of time. One’s friends now comes inside the picture. With the arms of friends, a person would look for a sense of similarity of fate. If it happens that his friends are also problematic individuals, chances are, they have already found something to keep them from fleeing from their dilemma. No surprise! Life in addiction, here they come.
We’ll take as an example the stories of teenagers. Teenagers are in the period where they are seeking for their hub to belong and be accepted. They will seek for materials, affection and emotion. Once they don’t get to have this from the very person they were expecting to receive, they would definitely divert their attention into something else. Trying something new will be the next option.
Now, here is where drugs get into the picture. At first it would just be a little taste. After a couple of times, tasting and savoring its effects, they will get addicted. Drugs now starts to mingle on their daily lives.
After a few sessions of trying drugs, a drug addict will most likely experience drug addiction . They will find themselves seeking to taste one more time this short heaven on earth. They would feel very anxious, temperamental and sick, if they won’t be able to take a bite and a taste again. Drug addiction would then become a very bad habit to break. Separating themselves from drugs would be very unpleasant. things would not be the same again.
The necessity to be “high” is not the end of drug addiction. Drug addiction is a continuous cycle. However, manifestations are of different types. Drug addiction lets an individual on the loose. Loosens one’s sense of what is right and wrong, what is moral and immoral, what is good and bad. One would crave and need for more if he or she is into drug addiction. Similar dosage would never be enough. Raising the dosage would be e necessity. And if you won’t be able to get more, you become someone else, you lose your humanity.
There are lots of impact and repercussions to this kind of ill habit. For one a person would learn to steal, dupe, and do wrong deeds just to have the resources to maintain their need. Drug addicts are much willing to do anything just to have the money to satisfy their craving. Extensive anxiety will occur whenever they try to separate themselves from their adddiction it has already become a compulsion that if they try to separate themselves from it, extensive anxiety will be experienced.
Drug addiction has now been considered a norm that it is very alarming.
