What kids in adolescence refuse to recognize is, though the temporary buzz or high that comes with drinking and smoking might be worth the hangover or the morning after, this behavior is all to risky for more than just their future. I personally, have chosen not to partake in drinking or recreational drugs because I second handedly have experienced this through my family. Their addiction not only corrupted their life as individuals, but it took their father away from their children, their spouse away from their wife, and their mother’s sons away from her. I feel as though if their environment in adolescence was more supportive and attentive that their addiction would not have grown to where it has them
Numerous people do not comprehend why or just how a person develops a drug addicted. It can be presumed that drug abusers have no moral code or willpower. Many people believe that people that are addict to drugs can leave the addiction by choosing to stop, and not feeding their addiction. In truth, drug addiction is a multifaceted illness, to quit takes more than good intentions. Society has a mental image of what a drug addict looks like.
Perhaps mental illness is not so much a problem for the mentally ill, but for their communities who can not and will not empathize with them. I wonder if people suffering from a mental illness are not really suffering at all, but are simply a behavioral minority. Their behavior prevents them from being accepted by the majority. They can not find work or often even a place to live, as these things are controlled by the majority.

They might be seen as loners, since they do not like to associate with anyone and work better when socially isolated. Main characteristics about people with this disorder are that they show little or not emotions, and have no close friends. With treatment the effects of this disorder could be decreased, yet most do not take the next step into treatment.
Addictions are not about will power. The problems facing addicts, alcoholics, and their families are miserable, disgusting, and infuriating. They are often hopelessly discouraging. But to imagine that an addict "could change if he wanted to" is a serious misunderstanding of the long term dynamic of addictive disorder. The fact is precisely that an addict cannot change in the long run even if he wants to!
Inappropriate drug use causes loss of responsibility, illnesses, marriage difficulties, shorter life spans, financial struggles, theft, accidents, lack of parenting, bad role models and more laws. Now I’m not saying all the problems are only do to drugs and if there was appropriate drug use our society would be perfect, no I’m saying drug use in our society has made an impact and in this case not for the better. The cost of inappropriate drug use to society is something that many overlook and others simply don’t care to recognize Many people associate inappropriate drug use with loss of responsibility. The user does not show up on time for work, or if they do they may not be able to work to the best of their ability since they are under the
How do you know when you are addicted to something? Is it a choice or just an effect? What most people do not understand, is that no one really chooses to be an addict. Being addicted to something such as drugs, alcohol, food, etc., is not due to someone waking up one day and saying 'hey, I would really enjoy not being able to cope without a substance.'
