Why do People take Drugs and Abuse Alcohol?

Written by Gary Wonning

Why do people take drugs and abuse alcohol?

In today’s world, it is becoming more and more acceptable to abuse drugs and alcohol. Why is this?

People have always to some extent consumed alcohol and drugs, there is even an argument that daily consumption of especially alcohol can have health benefits and lead to a healthier and longer life. There is even an argument that in certain cases use of illicit drugs can lead to a pain free life.

Many argue that drugs or no more harmful than alcohol and sometimes have less harmful effects on the human body than alcohol.

All of this is open to debate, and while the consumption of illegal drugs is becoming legal in many states and countries we have to begin asking ourselves why are people becoming more and more addicted to their use. It is one’s own personal choice as to whether he or she wants to ruin their life by the excessive consumption of drugs ,(illegal or legal),and or alcohol.

I don’t think the debate should be over whether or not one consumes drugs or alcohol one has to ask , “why are so many turning to these destructive behaviors?”

If we solved that dilemma, we wouldn’t need to worry about excessive drug or alcohol use, it wouldn’t be happening.

There are some religious orders who advocate not consuming alcohol at all , as one drink can lead to another and thus lead to alcoholism.  While this is certainly true, if one is of strong mind and body, and one has a strong spiritual foundation, then an occasional drink isn’t gong to lead to a life of alcohol abuse.

What has changed  in our society that has made people not able to face their problems and turn to drugs and alcohol to escape from reality?

Why can’t people face minor crises in their lives and be able to solve them without resorting to reality changing solutions?
