Jung was also addicted; he was addicted to drugs, money, dealing, and relationships. Which both Elizabeth and George can relate to their addictions and problems they encountered over their lives. Elizabeth is taking medication for her depression, but the pain gets worse and worse as the days go by. “I’m going up to 102nd st. to get the coke, it will make you feel better.” She is hooked on drugs because all she wants is the pain to go away, and being a young adult in college parting, beer, and drugs are going to be used.

Well, because it's awesome.”(Wolf of Wall Street 2013) This allows us to assume he had a substance abuse problem. Throughout the movie he was seen excessively drinking and drug use.

My family member was smoking weed at least twice a day for a year and exhibited no negative side effects.If anything he became more youthful and energetic after using the drug. But eventually he was worried about the law catching him with the marijuana and sending him to jail so he had to quit and now his Parkinson's has hit him harder than ever and even the normal painkillers will not help with his symptoms. He says that marijuana is the only drug that can help with his symptoms and he can not use it without worrying about going to prison or getting robbed by a dealer.
