Dependency and Adolescence

For most people, adolescent years are years that are filled with mental and physical ups and downs. There are so many modifications that happen in these years that it can be quite uncomfortable for many young people. This is when lots of folks go through their embarrassing phases, a phase where they arent confident where they’re heading and where they match in, along with a stage that can be indicated by rebellion.

It really is in the teenage years that we begin to develop more independent. Our hormones stop in because biologically it is time to start working on our own. Of course, in society we wait a bit longer to entirely be on our own, but we still start to gain more autonomy. This leads plenty of adolescents to feel as though they want to experience things they havent experienced before, they want to investigate what is out there and form their own views rather than acquiescing to what mother and dad say and let them know to. These encounters may contain medicines and booze.

It is described in films and television all the time and we see it in real life constantly, teenagers going to parties, trying medicines, and getting drunk. It will happen in real life too. Some become stuck in the period of habit, many youths do no more than experiment. Teens are more quickly impacted by medicines and alcohol, which may cause the development of addiction must quicker. Hence the link between dependency and adolescence.

In Addition, teenagers sometimes feel lost and misunderstood. Many experience emotions of deep unhappiness and melancholy. This is often caused by hormones and all of the adjustments that are happening at this stage in life. And this can lead teens to try to self medicate with alcohol and drugs, which again can cause dependency.

Fortunately, there are lots of efforts designed to raise awareness about the dangers of dependence, particularly in the teen years, in schools across the nation. There are also many private and professional efforts to aid teenagers feel more secure and feel supported as they’re going through the changes they are experiencing. This will ideally help them avoid a life long issue with dependence.
