With addiction, you have no idea where you’re going!
What comes into your mind when you see a very near one struggling with a dreadful habit all the time? An unbearable and tough-to-voice pain. Isn’t it? And the fact is that one dangerous habit is so potential for the addicted person is so over-indulged in his or her action that he or she can hardly sense your emotions and pain. So instead of wondering why they are not understanding your issue, it is much gainful if we ourselves realize that they are helpless and have no control over their actions. Yes, here we are talking about the people who intentionally or unintentionally become an addict to some dreadful practices. Addiction is not a limited zone, where the person is solely indulged in well-known alcoholism or drug-ism, but anything that goes beyond a specific usage-limit can be an addiction. For example, some kids play excessive video games, some people are uncontrollably addicted to watching pornographies and some are so dependent on medically prescribed opioids that they hardly accept that it is a sort of addiction. Undoubtedly, an addiction brings a lot of stress to the family in-connect with the addict, but this is the high time that you need a righteous way to help those addicts. Taking them to a rehabilitation center will help them understand that the path they are moving in is extremely detrimental.
If we talk about addiction in different genres of society, regretfully every category is so actively indulged in contemporary scenarios that it is becoming tougher to root out addiction completely. And so we do actually need a serious and organized discussion on this topic. Despite several campaigns on addiction effects on human health, we are unable to reach maximum people, then we are left with the one option that is taking the addicts to the reform centers where they self-realize the effects of their hard-to-quit addictions. But before that, we need to focus on the causes that drag our young adults and teens into the path of addiction. A formal listing of those reasons will be helpful for readers to examine the root and state of an addiction seen in their near ones. Stating a few common reasons behind addiction, here we have shared four popular ones for your thorough understanding:
Peer pressure or social demand: Sometimes, with no intention of being an addict a person loses its self-control in the grips of addiction. Being in the wrong group of friends is usually a persuasion for a person to start doing activities that others in the group do. The impact of friends is nowhere a new concept, as everyone knows and so the impact of an alcoholic group can make you feel that drinking and smoking is not a big deal.
Dealing with mental illness: We have seen most of the people saying that their addictions help them to come out of the stress they are having, which is completely a myth. Anything that is harmful to our health, can never be a remedy to our brains. Stress, depression, anxiety, etc. have become common health issues among teens and young adults nowadays. When these issues bring acute pains, headaches, then doctors prescribe several painkillers, drug-composed medicines, sleeping pills. Undoubtedly, a person with a long run pain will love these opioids as it vanishes all his or her mental exhaustion. But what happens if it is used for a long period? Those medicines react biologically with our brain cells and bring an instant state of relief-cum-happiness, which we assume as good. Rather the touch of addiction creates an illusion of everything being perfect and joyous in life. Starting from mental illness to addiction, the sufferer suffers in both.
Let’s just try once!: With this statement, a newbie starts a new habit and the habit becomes an addiction. Whatever the new habit is, make sure you stick that you do not over-limit. Many people with an intention to experience a new thing in life, start consuming dreadful abusive substances, and over a period of time, they become an addict if they do not have self-control. Once they become an addict you will observe a lot of changes in their physical state and crave all the time to have more abusive, become emotionally absent.
A family atmosphere is way important: There are many families, where toddlers grow seeing other elders at home being indulged in addiction without any guilt. When they grow up they also continue the same as a family culture. Our rehab experts say this is the toughest case, as the addicts feel it is their right to consume abusive substances and there is no one to stop them. But it eventually hampers generation to generation, spoiling the entire family’s atmosphere.
