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. It was the start of the formulation of drugs. 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. Drug Addiction is not considered a novelty anymore. Drug addiction is now a plague rotting people from all walks of life. What worst is that it does not select where or what to impinge on. People from lowest class of social status could be the casualty, and even the elite one, or the people from the upper social class. No one is an exemption to this infection, everyone can be a victim. Even personalities you idolize on movies and TV shows are not spared from the dangers of drug addiction. Shelter from drug addiction is a thing that does not exist.
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 is the source of this frenzy? Obviously, reasons can be very varied. Family and friends play a vital part. They could be a reason 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 constantly receives criticisms and soaks up family-related problems, a consequence would be that they would seek for a place where they can speak 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! A life in addiction is quite foreseeable.
Let’s take the stories of teenagers. Teenagers are in the stage 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 redirect their attention into something else. Trying something new will be the next option.
The next picture would then involve the use of drugs. Primarily, everything starts with a little tasting for the name of trying. After numerous times, tasting and savoring its effects, they will get addicted. Then, their life is sealed, with drugs.
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. If they cannot able to get a hold of the substance, they start to feel sick, anxious, and temperamental. Drug addiction would then become a very bad activity to break. The act of separating one’s self from drug would result to numerous negative consequences. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Drug addiction does not end in craving, needing and satisfying one’s need to be “high”. Drug addiction is a continuous cycle. However, manifestations are of different kinds. Drug addiction makes 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. You would need more. And if you won’t be able to get more, you become someone else, you lose your humanity.
This ill kind of habit has a lot of impact and repercussions. For one a person would learn to steal, dupe, and do wrong deeds just to have the finance to carry on 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.
