5 Reasons Why People Get Addicted To Drugs

5 Reasons Why People Get Addicted To Drugs

Nowadays, drug abuse is a universally condemned action such that selling certain drugs are illegal. Children are not allowed to take drugs until they reach a certain age such as 21 for most states in India. Lots of problems start occurring when you are addicted to a certain drug. It is also nearly impossible to stop since the nerve cells change the way they function due to drugs.

These nerve cells overstimulate the 'reward circuit' of the brain. This means that your brain constantly needs to be 'rewarded' and this reward comes in the form of drugs. There are many reasons why people become addicts and here are some of them.

  1. People want to get high: This is perhaps the most common reason why people become drug addicts. The moment they take in one drug, they love the feeling they get so much that they keep wanting to go back to it.
  2. People want to fit in: This is also a very common reason. When all your friends and perhaps even your bosses and other superiors are taking drugs, you do not want to feel left out or ostracized by your friend group. This is why many people start taking drugs.
  3. Unintentionally taking drugs due to injuries or medical conditions: Sometimes a doctor prescribes a medicine for a certain time period but it does not work or works too well and so you keep taking the drug so that you will feel better. This happens more often than you think.
  4. People take drugs to relieve stressThis is another very common reason why people take drugs. You may easily rationalize with them thinking that taking drugs is a good way to relax from work and family pressures. However, the long term effects of taking drugs are much worse than the stress.
  5. Boredom from daily life: In young teens and adolescents especially, life can be so boring that they want to try something new and thus resort to drug abuse.

How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

The first step to getting help for a drinking problem is actually recognising that you have one. There are some signs that you might have a problem with alcohol, but it's also worthwhile asking yourself a few questions about your reasons for drinking. Facing the facts can be pretty tough, but it's courageous to step up and decide you need help to control your alcohol intake.

This can help if:

 

  •     You're regularly binge drinking
  •     You're having blackouts
  •     You drink when you're alone
  •     Other people are worried about your drinking habits 
  •     You have an increased tolerance to alcohol and drugs

Signs of alcohol dependence

It's not always easy to tell when you have a drinking problem, particularly as binge drinking is a pretty common activity in Australia. You might not always notice when a couple of drinks has turned into too many.

The fact that you're thinking about whether you have a problem is a good start and there are some signs of alcohol dependence that you can look out for:

 

  •     Worrying about when you'll be able to have your next drink
  •     Suffering from withdrawal symptoms like sweating, nausea or insomnia as a result of not drinking alcohol
  •     Needing to drink more and more alcohol to get drunk
  •     Drinking alcohol, or desiring to drink alcohol, when you wake up in the morning
  •     Consuming alcohol regularly on your own, or trying to hide your alcohol consumption from those around you
  •     Relationships with friends or family are being affected by your drinking. Ask yourself some questions

A couple of questions that people who work in the field of alcohol addiction often ask people include...

 

  •     Do you drink because you have problems or to relax?
  •     Do you drink when you get mad at other people, including your friends or parents?
  •     Do you prefer to drink alone, rather than with other people?
  •     Is your work or education suffering as a result of your drinking?
  •     Have you ever tried to stop drinking or to drink less and found that you can't?
  •     Do you drink in the morning, before school or work?
  •     Do you gulp your drinks?
  •     Do you ever have loss of memory due to your drinking?
  •     Do you lie about how much or how often you drink?
  •     Do you ever get into trouble when you're drinking?
  •     Do you get drunk when you drink, even when you don't mean to?
  •     Do other people comment on your drinking and think it's a problem?

If you answer yes to any one of these questions, it's possible that you have a problem with alcohol.

Facing the facts

Facing up to the fact that you might have a problem takes courage. Deciding to take control and get some help is a really brave move, and if you do feel you have a problem, getting help can be the best thing ever.

Headaches is something which is very tricky. It is one of the commonest physical symptom arising due to inability to cope with excessive stress. But it is something which can be a presentation of grave medical illness as well. This is why you should get yourself evaluated to rule out any physical cause of headache. If they are ruled out managing stress by pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods is recommended.

I'm suffering from anxiety, lack of interest to do any work. Negative homely environment. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
These are all the effects of anxiety. May be you should consult your doctor to see if s/he would want to increase the dosage. Regarding the home environment, check to see, if you are part of the cause. If so, learn to do something different by meeting with a counselor. Anyway it is important to work with a counselor to develop skills and techniques to handle anxiety. Medication alone is not adequate.

You maybe having a viral fever or you may have had too much exercise that you are not used to regularly. In any case take rest, drink lots of water and consult again if your problems persist or get worse.

Hi, quitting alcohol will be one of the best decisions of your life. Alcohol not only affects your physical health, it also affects mental well-being, interpersonal relationships and performance at work. When you started drinking it was probably just a drink with friends, but somewhere it became an addiction. Addiction is often rooted in psychological issues that you may or may not be aware of. Before you quit drinking you will first need to identify these issues or else even when you quit drinking, there is a high chance of you getting addicted to something else. Consult a psychologist and work on these issues. The point of life where you stand today did not happen overnight, nor will changing it. Give it time and effort and resolve the underlying problems first. Start doing things that you have given up on in due course of time - start socializing with friends/family, exercising, eating healthy, doing little things in life that bring you joy and above all find a purpose in life that you are passionate about. You might need to take some medicines when you quit alcohol to deal with withdrawal symptoms. You can also try joining alcoholics anonymous in your city. It is a support group where they share their own stories and discuss how they overcame their addiction. All the best!
