Once Tasted Always Wanted…

Why some people became dependent on drugs?

People use drugs in many different reasons…Most of them said at first, out of curiousity, to have a good time, not to get drunk, because their friends are also using, and some says to ease themselves from stress, personal probs & depression,etc…Using this substance doesn’t mean it will automatically lead you to addiction or abuse..It’s all up to you..It varies by individual, If u are willing to stop or not…No matter on how much or how little your are consuming, like twice a week, or some like twice a day or thrice…Some Uses even more…If this substance can cause problems at work, home, school, and in relationships, you likely have a drug abuse or drug addiction problem,…leaving you feeling isolated and helpless…

Drug use can also lead you prison and you mentally disturbed..Change Of behavior, lack of appetite, and sudden weight loss or weight gain.. It will totally change you and your life giving you long term consequences (negative consequences including your mental health, employment and the law)..Addiction is a complex disorder, a chronic, relapsing brain disease.. While each drug produces different physical  & mental effects, all abused substances share one thing in common: repeated use can alter the way the brain looks and functions. And your brain won’t function the same way before you start using this substance..So much better not to use it before it ends you…Coz me myself is a USER…BEFORE..

When you’re addicted, you may not be able to control yourself on  drug use and you may continue using the drug despite the harm it will cause.  Addiction can cause an intense craving for the drug and will force you to steal. Craving is a part of being an addict. You may want to quit yet you will always think of using it again and again, while most drug addicts think they can can find a way and can do it on their own. Quitting is very difficult. If you’re concerned with some people you know whose addicted to this substance, let them know that there is help whenever they need it..

Some people who experiment with this substance continue to use them because drugs either makes them feel good, or stops them from feeling bad. In many cases, however, there is a fine line between regular use and drug abuse and addiction, there’s a negative and positive effect of drug use. Very few addicts are able to recognize when they have crossed that line.

Fortunately, this days treatments are available to help people who are misled by drugs and counter addiction’s powerful disruptive effects. Research shows that combining addiction treatment medications with behavioral therapy is the best way to ensure success for most patients. Treatment approaches that are tailored to each patient’s drug abuse patterns and any co-occurring medical, psychiatric, and social problems can lead to sustained recovery and a life without drug abuse. Yet, i still wont believe this would change the people who are involved in drugs without there willpower…And also some rehabilitation centers now, are selling drugs inside the rehab  as what i’ve heard..I have a friends who just came out in the rehab and as what i have observed from him, I was wondering why,..He just came out and how come he is getting worst he still uses..After 6 months of rehab, i thought he changed yet he didn’t..REHABS now are no use without your willpower… or that an alternative treatment is needed to help the individual regain control and recover.

Overcoming addiction is a simply a matter of willpower. You can stop using drugs if you really want to…char.com
