Friends Make You Promises About Drugs That They Cannot Keep

Your friends told you that you would have the time of your life when you got high. They said that you would see all kinds of things and you'd feel really great. They said that you would forget all of your problems if only you popped that pill or smoked that stuff. They said things at first that sounded good in your mind as you were tempted. But as addiction became worse and worse, reality struck you. Your friends and even the drugs lied to you! Promises were made that could never be kept. Now, you're addicted.

The Lie:

Consequences of Prescription Medication Addiction

Most prescription medication is physically addictive. To abruptly discontinue prescription medications, could create a situation where the person could immediately experience seizures or convulsions. It is for this reason, that withdrawal from prescription medications should be gradual and under medical supervision. This is best accomplished in a residential treatment program to guard against any medical complications.

The discomfort associated with withdrawal from these medications is contingent upon the dose the person is taking and the length of time they have been taking it. Some people take between 20 and 30 pills daily.

In addition to the physical addiction created by abusing prescription medication, people also experience a deterioration in personal relationships, employment difficulties due to a lack of concentration and motivation, financial difficulties, legal problems, as well as, psychological difficulties. Most of the people found addicted to prescription medication have experienced most of the above.

These are just some of the physical effects of snorting cocaine. Noticeable changes in a persons behavioral pattern include paranoia, restlessness and anxiety. People with high dependency on cocaine experience severe paranoid psychosis, lose touch with reality, and start hallucinating. No matter what the ingestion method, the effects of cocaine are harmful and may result in strokes, heart attacks, and seizures. Common health problems that arise from cocaine abuse include:

Like alcohol and other drug addictions, cocaine addiction has adverse psychological effects. Users often describe their euphoric state as an increasing sense of energy, feeling of superiority, and extremely jubilant moods. But like all other drugs, the stage when the high wears off is a state of extreme paranoia, anxiety, and restlessness. Cocaine intensifies emotional experiences like anger and frenzy, and users may want to indulge in high risk activities. Robberies and theft are common ways to raise finances for this extravagant drug. Several previous addicts have confessed to having sex with strangers in order to raise cash for cocaine.

Social and Psychological Factors

Users of heroin may become addicted due to insecurities or frustrations that dominant their life. They may be facing problems at home or in family life which leads them to trying it and then becoming addicted to it. They may live in an environment where it is easily available and supported or encouraged by their friends. Usually, those trying other drugs stumble upon heroin and may derive more satisfaction from it to become addicted. In some cases it is the lack of education and hardships which push people toward it.
