Substance Abuse?

Question by sendzik04: substance abuse?
Can someone please tell me why substance abuse happens

Best answer:

Answer by Pookeygirl
There are many factors contributing to substance abuse. Genetic predisposition is one. If your parents were addicts, you are at higher risk.
Chemical imbalance in the brain can cause addiction. Problems with serotonin and other neurotransmitters can make a person have an addictive personality.
Peer pressure and trying to fit in with others is a contributing factor.
Ethnic background or religious beliefs in the way a person is raised.
Environment plays a role in addiction. Poverty is a common reason for some people to abuse substances.
Life experiences can cause a person to turn to substances. Someone who has had a lot of bad problems and can’t cope.
Social anxiety can cause a person to abuse substances so they are more comfortable around others.
There are probably more, but above are a few. Hope this helps

    Everyone should use erowid for drug info. I don’t think anyone? would die if they actually knew all the facts about the drugs they use.

    This is? one of the most amusing things I have ever seen. His inflection with an emphasis on Every Word is just… golden.

    But honesty, there is no way for parents to totally prevent drug use. An outright ban on all substances is absurd, because everyday foods like chocolate and honeycomb contain mind-altering substances. Really, what’s most important is to understand the effects different drugs have, and to let people make informed choices.

    I almost bacame addicted to this medication my doctor had me take for autoimmune hives, I got really scared, but I had an appointment that same day, and they were going to take me off of the meds. I felt so relieved when I heard this, but there are? bad side affects when you quit *snap* just like that. You need to wein off of the meds little by little. Now, I only take them when I really need them

  • Th0usandMaster says:

    no objection

    you are free to have your own opinion just the same? as i do.

    However, I never said it’s all about boredom. Boredom is just one factor, if you read my whole comment.

    As for this video, marijuana does not IMPAIR? the growing brain. It changes it. Whether or not this is negative or positive has not yet been determined.

  • PullyElbow27 says:

    Actually, it? does.

  • Billythachikk says:

    I hate that word, chance.
    It has a super positive sound to it, but in English you use it like you use “risk”.
    It sounds like you? want to be addicted.
    “There’s a chance of getting addicted to liquor. ”
    “There’s a risk of getting addicted to liquor. ”
    Or you could use likelihood for a more objective sound.
