Subject: Why Do Drugs?
It seems that drugs are no longer considered bad or harmful. Instead, many people view drug use as cool, fun and done by those who want to be a part of the cool crowd. But this is far from the only reason that people do drugs. Read this article and learn what's really going on with drug use in the world today.
- One of the reasons people do drugs is because they desperately want that feeling.
- Closely related to feelings of euphoria is the express intention to get “high” on drugs. This is a deliberate choice to do drugs in order to achieve a state of altered awareness.
- First exposure to drugs for many young people is through their peers. This occurs mostly at unsupervised gatherings such as parties, and during the summer, holidays and on weekends.
"In addition to wanting to achieve euphoria and get high, another common reason to do drugs is to experience an increase in energy. This burst of energy, however, is only short-term, often leading to increased usage to recapture or maintain that energetic feeling."
